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.”

Genesis 1:26-28 – The Image of God: Is There a Gender Distinction?

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Does the image of God relate to men and women identically? Most say “yes.” However, upon closer examination of what the Bible does say, and does not say, it seems that the man (male) is created directly in the image of God, and the woman (female) receives this indirectly, since she is taken from the man. Further, this distinction emphasizes function and assigned responsibility, not value. It relates to God-designed and God-assigned gender roles. Men and women are equal before the Lord. Each has different assigned roles based upon God’s design. Living by God’s truth requires, in part, living by God’s design for man and woman.
