What is Marriage?

by Dale Partridge

In this delightful era where a documentary titled “What is a woman?” can captivate the masses, and where global companies, politicians, presidents, and even religious leaders seem to have misplaced their understanding of basic truths regarding gender, sexuality, and family, I present to you a brief episode that aims to define the ever-elusive concept of marriage. Because clearly, the world needs a little refresher on this subject.

In this episode of Real Christianity, Dale Partridge discusses how marriage is more than just a relationship, but rather is a sacred covenant between one man and one woman, established, ordained, and defined by God Himself, and, therefore cannot be redefined by man.

Scripture References

  • Ephesians 5:25-33

    ‘Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.’
