What Is A Marriage
John Alley • September 10, 2017 • John Alley
It is very important, says John Alley, to hear the word of God and to take it into our souls. Beginning with Luke 11:27-28, John unpacks Scripture to counteract the attempt of our enemy to destroy Christian culture in Western civilization, part of which is the attack on the traditional family unit. John takes the listeners on a “tour” of Bible teaching on the subject of God’s plan for a man, a woman and children. It was not man who invented marriage, and neither can he redefine it. says John – it was God’s idea and His creation. Man can make laws, but those laws cannot change the natural order of things in the world. The basic family unit exists in every culture – because that is the natural order that Jesus put into place. John completes his message with an insightful quote by G K Chesterton, along with a recommendation of a book pertaining to the subject at hand.

When a nation loses its way spiritually, says John Alley, other things slide also. This statement was in response to a recent report that the standards of students’ results in learning have become drastically lower than previously. However, says John, by our prayers the Lord turns all things around to show His glory. John goes on to state that everything goo din this world can be traced back to the gospel – medal breakthroughs, care for the aged and underprivileged and great inventions all had their beginnings in Christianity. However, when an atheistic society gets hold of these good things and twists them to an extreme position, corruption occurs. John refers to Colossians 1:28, where reference is made to “every man perfect”, explaining that according to Scripture we all should strive to be perfect as God is perfect. John emphasizes the need for strong men in leadership in the Church. We must be very prayerful, says John, in these times when there is an agenda afoot to twist and distort that which God meant for good.
