The Idol of Marriage by Tyler

The Idol of Marriage, by Tyler

Excerpts:

    I think far too many Christians and evangelistic churches have made an idol out of marriage. And in some ways even I have made an idol out of marriage.

    Not so much my marriage or really the marriage of any two specific people, but the idea of marriage.

    This might seem contrary to how most people would approach the subject because of the problems divorce is causing our society, but I do believe it remains true.

    … I don’t know about you, but I find what Paul has to say about singleness and marriage to be a far cry from the way many Christians and churches treat the subject.

    How many churches do you know that have a single pastor? There aren’t many.

    Should part of the goal in our Christian lives really be to marry? Isn’t pursuing our relationship with Christ the higher calling?
