When I-Marriage Creeps into the Church | The Covenant
Notes from Weeks 5 & 6 of The Covenant CORE GROUP
“As long as we’re both Christians, we’ll be doing Covenant Marriage, right?”
No!! We have the same temptations as our unbelieving neighbors to take a posture of manipulation toward our spouse.
Here are some false ideas on marriage (spoken or unspoken) sometimes found in the church:
God’s main purpose in marriage is for both partners to feel happy.
Being faithful to Scripture is something I can focus on after MY needs are met.
The Bible gives easy answers to complicated marriage problems.
Any book, website, etc. that calls itself “Christian” can be trusted to give advice that is consistent with Scripture.
