Talking Marriage is a platform to openly share how to Preserve Marriages in a time where marriages are constantly under attack. When people start becoming honest and are able to share real life experiences about the truth that takes place in marriages, then we come one step closer to realigning the True Purpose of Marriages Gods way and addressing our individual weaknesses for the greater Preservation of Marriages.
We Believe in Preserving Marriages.
What We Believe
The Bible: Marriage is a gift of God. When God brought to Adam the woman who was specially created for him, he cried out joyfully: “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh” (Gen. 2:23). This joy over a real companion is the explicit will of God: “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him” (Gen. 2:18). Marriage has been established by the Creator; it is therefore not a humanly devised institution. It existed from the beginning, as Jesus himself defined the origin and essence of marriage in Matthew 19:4-6: “Haven’t you read . . . that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” With the commandment “You shall not commit adultery,” God protects marriage and allows sexual intercourse only inside this close union (Eccles. 9:9). Sexual relations (becoming one flesh) before or outside marriage is branded as fornication and immorality.
Marriages & Families Are Under attack!
Never before have we seen Satan in such an all-out attack on the Christian home and marriage. He is walking down the aisles of the church, filtering into each pew, attacking Christian families, deacons and teachers, and even the pastor. Why is Satan attacking the Christians? Because he knows he already has won the unsaved. Now he is invading God’s territory, causing depression, broken relationships, discouragement, lack of self-esteem and dissension within families. Satan has pulled every trick out of his bag. Why is this happening? Hebrews 12:26-29 says, “At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken-that is, created things-so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire’.”
We want you to discover the root of your problems. Do you have a problem between you and your mate, or do your problems involve outside pressures, such as a job, extra-curricular activities, or relatives? The major causes of marital unrest is over commitment of time. If outside pressures are bothering you, admit to your mate, “You’re not the problem. I’m just frustrated, and I’m taking it out on you. Please forgive me.” But don’t fail to recognize your real attacker; Satan is out to destroy your home. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full.” Satan is out to steal your family time and communication by outside jobs, activities, and television. He wants to steal the peace and joy of your home and replace it with tension, frustration and cutting words. He’s trying to crack and destroy the home, the foundation of Gods family.
