Why Did God Invent Marriage?
Updated: Mar 29, 2019
"Christianity Questions and Answers" podcast CQA 054
This podcast is being released on Carolyn’s and my 37th anniversary (August 4, 2016). It seemed like a good time to answer the question “Why did God invent marriage?”
There is no question that marriage is in disarray for many. This is much more than a generation ago:
Divorce laws were loosened leading to many more broken homes.The “sexual revolution” made people think that sexual gratification is more important than lifelong committed love.Our Supreme Court has redefined marriage in contradiction to what God intended.
Wow, we need to get back to the basics: why did God invent marriage in the first place?
Here are some of the verses used in this recording:
“Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.’” (Genesis 2:18 NLT)
“So I say to those who aren’t married and to widows—it’s better to stay unmarried, just as I am. But if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust.” (1 Corinthians 7:8-9 NLT)
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it.” (Genesis 1:28a KJV)
