It's time for us as Christians to take a stand for the true meaning of marriage- the one that is rooted in the Bible, in history, in tradition, and in nature. As followers of Christ we need to be the "salt" and "light," that Jesus tells us to be in Matthew 5:14-16.
But we must first admit that the church's current record on marriage is dismal. The divorce statistics inside the church are even worse than those outside. We have allowed our culture's reckless abandon toward expressive individualism to permeate our way thinking about marriage and divorce. We must repent of any wrong attitudes and actions, and renew a biblical mindset regarding the sanctity, permanence and sacrificial essence of marriage.
