Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage

"Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge."
Hebrews 13:4.

The Word of God concerning marriage, which God instituted in creation, is very comprehensive. It defines the nature of marriage as an unbreakable bond of union in which two are made one. It sets forth the design, glory, and purpose of marriage. The same Word of God speaks extensively and consistently concerning the corruption of marriage. Jesus likewise speaks often of marriage, including the issues of divorce and remarriage. This is an area which requires careful study.

The Christian church and believers need to hear what that Word of God is and to take seriously both the doctrine and the practice which flow from it. For marriage is under assault as never before. A church that does not stand on the Scriptures in this area destroys itself and the spiritual life of its members.

The material presently linked to the page is therefore a matter of the basics and more will be added.
