Join us as we unravel the complexities surrounding marriage in today’s culture. In this discourse, we dissect the factors contributing to the devaluation of marriage, including the impact of political ideologies and societal shifts. We grapple with weighty topics such as the implications of Marxist thought, the removal of sex from the context of marriage, and the rise of no-fault divorce and pornography. Our conversation also highlights the unique challenges faced by men in a society that often undervalues them, and the effects of court systems on family structure.
Listen in as we examine the changing definitions of marriage and the implications for the church and individual roles. We tackle the subject of how marriage has been redefined and devalued, leading to a lack of commitment and understanding of its true purpose. We underscore the need for a biblical understanding of marriage and singleness within the church, discussing the importance of community involvement and the value of attending church regularly for a fulfilling marriage and life. We also share book recommendations that offer insightful perspectives on these matters.
Join us as we navigate the tumultuous terrain of marriage in a post-Christian culture, shedding light on the church’s role in the ongoing war on marriage. We highlight the need for churches to address sexual perversion and the challenges posed by cultural shifts in the perception of sex. We stress the importance of not getting caught up in technicalities or legalistic views, and instead focus on what best glorifies God. We also caution against rejecting biblical sexuality in response to the harm caused by purity culture. Tune in for a frank and open discussion on these important cultural issues.
