Today the meaning and purpose of marriage have been lost, and it is our fault. The prevalence of pornography, divorce, pre-marital sex, cohabitation, infidelity, and a thousand other mistakes have blurred our vision of God’s plan for sex, family, and society to the point of blindness. The task before us is not merely to argue against same-sex marriage. Ours is a much larger project. It is time to restore among our people a sense of the profound beauty, mystery, and holiness of faithful marital love. Christians must take up the mission to renew and rebuild a culture that values marriage and family. To do so, we must first understand what marriage is and why it matters
Religious Liberty: How the Gospel Shapes Our First Freedom
What if the freedom to practice our faith were taken away? What if we had to decide whether to follow either the rule of our country or our God-given conscience? Religious liberty has protected Christians in America from having to answer these questions, but that may not always be the case. Religious Liberty: How the Gospel Shapes Our First Freedom articulates what the Bible teaches about religious liberty through an overarching biblical theology. Religious liberty is rooted in the kingdom of God and the storyline of Scripture. And it’s integral to our understanding of the church’s mission.
