what does the Bible say about marriage hey everyone I’m mark from apply God’s Word calm a place where we apply the Bible to your life in this episode we’re gonna talk about seven things that the Bible says about marriage we’re gonna go through these points pretty quick so I’m not gonna list out all the Bible verses because we’d be here for hours but if you want to do a more in-depth study on this topic I also wrote an article so I’ll leave a link in the description of this video if you want to check that out at apply God’s Word calm point one of what the Bible says about marriage is that marriage was created by God and is good so God created humans in His image so it shouldn’t be a surprise that God gave humans ingenuity and the ability to create and think of things and then bring them into existence so to speak in the idea of like governments are the way society should be structured or certain cultural practices humans can create certain things because God’s given us the ability to do that but here’s the thing with marriage it wasn’t an idea created by man it’s not something that we thought of and instituted marriage is a biblical principle that was right at the beginning of creation for example in Genesis 2:24 it says this therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife and they shall become one flesh so you see in that passage it doesn’t say that a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to a woman and then they created marriage down the line it says the man will leave his parents and then be united to his wife so you see right there that God is actually the author of marriage it also says that marriage is good everything God created is good for example in proverbs 18:22 it says he who finds a wife finds a good thing and the same obviously goes for women who find a husband they find a good thing in marriage so point one the Bible says that marriage was created by God and is good the second thing the Bible says about marriage is that it’s something not just for Christians but for the whole world I know it’s a Christian idea and it’s something that originated with God but God created this for the whole world for example in Genesis 1:28 God is speaking to humans where he said I’m creating you to be fruitful and multiply in to rule and subdue the earth so marriage is is not just an institution just for Christians God wants all people who are called to marriage to to join in the marriage covenant and bond with one another and you can see this in the benefit it brings to societies study after study show that when the marriage isn’t a traditional marriage isn’t emphasized in a society that society starts breaking down so there’s all kinds of benefits between having a dad and a mom helping to raise kids together it’s just super beneficial because God created it that way the idea of marriage falls under the theological doctrine of common grace not every person on earth drinks of God’s special grace or saving grace which is when we understand and receive and put our faith in Jesus Christ to have a relationship with God through the gospel that’s that’s a certain Stipe of saving grace that only Christians experience but there’s another form of Grace in the Bible referred to as common grace and what that means is everything good in creation the food we eat the water we drink the air we breathe the sunshine the crops everything that is good is from God and that’s common grace so even if unbelievers don’t give God the recognition he deserves for the good in their life the Bible says all that is from God so marriage falls under the principle of common grace given to the entire world point three while the Bible says that marriage is for Christians and non-christians the Bible specific he says it should not be between an unbeliever and a believer the Bible calls this unequally yoked so the Bible says that God does not want Christians marrying non-christians it says that in 1st Corinthians 6 verses 14 through 15 and 1st Corinthians 7 verse 39 the fourth thing the Bible says about marriage is that it’s supposed to be between one man and one woman every type of example you see in marriage points to this specific type of marriage it’s the only marriage that God ordains and has talked about in his words so this this means that there’s two things that are for sure a sin in God’s eyes polygamy which would mean that there’s more than one man and one woman in the marriage that is a sin now you might think of the Old Testament where there are certain old Old Testament characters like King David and Solomon and all these other guys who actually had multiple lives and that is absolutely true but nowhere in the Bible are you’re gonna find that God was condoning that or commanding that that is something that they did on their own God has always said marry one woman also since the Bible clearly says that marriage is between one man and one woman this also means that gay marriage is something that’s not condoned in the Bible and is sin because it’s endorsing homosexuality which again is a violation of the way God originally created humans to be paired to a husband and a wife those are some loaded statements I just said so I’ll leave a link in the description of this video for more details on that if you want all the Bible verses to back up the statements I just said the fifth thing that I see in the Bible about marriage is that it is a unique bond between a husband and a wife it says in Genesis 2:24 again that a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and become one flesh every time you see an intimate relationship with in the Bible it’s always paired with commitment intimacy and commitment are always paired in the scriptures that’s why premarital sex is a sin in the Bible because you’re having an extreme form of intimacy without the extreme form of commitment in the Covenant of marriage while premarital sex I think is pretty clear for most Christians and know that that’s wrong there’s also a danger in having an emotional intimacy that crosses a line or cohabitation with someone of the opposite of the opposite sex cohabitation and emotional intimacy are two things that should be again reserved for the marriage next the Bible says that what God has joined together man should not separate in other words divorce is something that is not condoned in the scriptures except for one thing an actual sexual and affair so even when an affair happens within the marriage the Bible doesn’t command a divorce but it does allow for it lastly the Bible says that marriage is a symbolic representation of the relationship between Christ and the church it says in Ephesians 5:22 through 33 that the husband represents Christ and the wife represents the church that’s why a husband and a wife are equally important in the relationship but they do play different roles a husband is supposed to lead and love his family and a wife is supposed to love and support that leadership which you can see in the relationship between Christ and the church Christ is ultimately our leader and the church is following Christ and honoring him so marriage is such a unique special relationship that God uses it to show us something special about Christ and His Church as you can see the Bible says a lot about marriage it is something super important to God so if you’re single right now and want to prepare for your future marriage you might enjoy my book the ultimate guide to Christian singleness it takes
