What is a Christian marriage?

Posted 9/21/2001

Dr. Mark Minnick, Couples' Conference 2001

"The hallmark of a good marriage is the ability to reconcile differences"

  1. One flesh relationship Ge 2:24- one man & one woman permanently merged, united, attached
  2. A covenant before God Mal 2:14- a solemn agreement that involves rewards & penalties, witnessed by God & others.
  3. Lifelong Rom 7:1-3- "until death do us part"

Anything less is not marriage. Adultery is not. Living together is not.

We are accountable before God.

Sin is here, and has been; but grace abounds so much more.
