Timeline of Truth: Command #2 – You Shall Not Make a Carved Image (Exodus 20:4-6)

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

The idea of no carved image brings the idea of not making God into something we want or design. We are not to seek to re-define God as something created, or worship something created rather than the One who has created everything.

God Explains Marriage, Part 2 (Ephesians 5:22-24)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

We start to look more closely at the specific commands in Ephesians 5-22-33. Since the passage begins with the wives, we do the same.

First we look at the statement in v.21 which says “submitting to one another,” and how the six individual roles are commanded to carry that concept out as it relates to their specific relationships.

Second we examine why the wives are commanded before the husbands. We discover that this pattern is not limited to the wives. A very interesting observation surfaces.

God Explains Marriage, Part 1 (Ephesians 5:22-33)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

We studied the creation and design of marriage by God in Genesis. God gives us greater understanding of the roles and meaning of marriage in Ephesians 5. In this study we examine 6 preliminary observations – general truths that characterize this passage:

  1. My Marriage Role Is Based Upon My Gender
  2. My Marriage Role Is Commanded
  3. My Marriage Role Is Without Conditions
  4. My Marriage Role Focuses on My Actions Toward My Spouse
  5. My Marriage Role Assumes an Imperfect Spouse
  6. My Marriage Role Is Built Upon a Spiritual Relationship

God Designs Marriage: 13 Principles from Genesis (Genesis 1-3)

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Even in conservative Christian circles, people miss what God clearly establishes regarding marriage in the first three chapters of Genesis. These truths remain unchanged throughout the Bible. Will the Bible be your authority regarding the very basis of marriage, gender, children, society, and the Church?

Mark 10:2-9 The Pharisees came and asked Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” testing Him. 3 And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.” 5 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 “But from the beginning of the creation, God `made them male and female.’ 7 `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 `and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 “Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

What Is Marriage?

In an era when traditional marriage is being rejected or redefined, it is good to return to the Source of marriage – God. How did God design and define marriage? What is marriage intended to be?
