The Insanity of the Christian Vision of Marriage

Wednesday is for Prayer

This coming Saturday, I will be teaching a seminar titled Marriage Skills for the 21st Century, at Trinity Church in Watseka, IL. Last I heard there were 86 people registered but there is still room for more. You can get more information at MyTrinity.TV. I feel completely overwhelmed to speak to the greatness of God’s vision on marriage. Who is capable of such a majestic and important theme? I covet your prayers. 

“There never has been a generation whose general view of marriage is high enough. The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human vision is now, and has always been, gargantuan. Some cultures in history respect the importance and the permanence of marriage more than others. Some, like our own, have such low, casual, take-it-or-leave-it attitudes toward marriage as to make the biblical vision seem ludicrous to most people.”

John Piper, This Momentary Marriage,
(Crossway Books, 2009)
