Christians no longer practice “Christian Marriage”

  1. Thanks Tim – a voice of grace and truth in the current marriage ‘debate’ – delivered with your customary gentleness and respect. This 5 minute Bible podcast points to where Christians’ focus should be mainly directed.

  2. Yes and thanks- grace and truth in a world of misbelief. I enjoyed the part of fidelity “..look back upon the marriage and call it love..” Looking after the generations who have been married 60-70 years and those people who lost their spouses early and never remarried because there would have been no better, has been a privileged insight. Having a quick look at an article by Gordon Spykman in Paul Heintzman, Thomas L. Visker (2006) “Christianity and Leisure: Issues in a Pluralistic Society: Toward a Christian Perspective in the Leisure Sciences”,Dordt College Press., (while packing up to move) he assumes that for “..what holds for one aspect of life also holds in its unique way for others..” in that what holds for work as work, marriage as marriage, worship as worship, also holds for leisure as leisure and certain norms hold each of these aspects of life. It would be easy to assume that changing a ‘norm’ would either change everything in some way or another or have no effect upon those who keep to the norm. Yes – holding an eschatological view of our Christianity and marriage really helps.
