Marriage is...

What is marriage? It is an important question because it concerns the definition of what was, until very, very recently, the chief and central union of commitment in our world. Now, as our society debates the changes it wants to make to definitions of sex and gender, we find that marriage is being redefined (even by public vote). But we cannot know what is happening if we don’t know what marriage is—and then we can understand the implications. Put simply, marriage is the union of one man and one woman, in committed and binding promises, for life. It is created by, designed by, God for the service of him. It projects his image into the world, it fills the world with his image-bearers, and it is the living-breathing example in everyday life of the love of God, in Jesus, for his people, the one love that makes them whole again and fulfils their humanity. Now, what happens if we lose/change marriage?
