It should come as no surprise that the King of kings has opinions on the subject of marriage and that said opinions are perfect in every way because, among other things, the King in question is the Author, Definer, and Sustainer of marriage.
With that in mind, how do we chart a path to understanding where the intersection of marriage and politics is concerned?
Put another way: How do we rightly understand the interaction between one of God’s creations (marriage) with another of His creations (the political realm)?
Framing the question that way changes quite a lot, doesn’t it?
Ditching the flimsy (and that’s being infinitely charitable) presuppositions that politics and/or marriage are somehow man’s to do with as he sees fit apart from subjugation to the King of kings is an essential first step toward rescuing both marriage and politics from the darkness in which they’re immersed these days in our not-so-coincidentally dying culture.
Reminding ourselves of the actual, real-world lordship of Christ over politics and marriage right here and now is one of the first steps taken in this week’s installment of our ongoing Tennessee General Assembly Bible Study.
For those interested in following along, here are some images of the print material accompanying this week’s study. (We had a one week pause on March 19 due to the annual Prayer Breakfast event being at the same time, so the March 19 study actually happened on the 26th.)
