Taught by Justin Johnson on Sunday, September 23rd, 2012.
In modern Christianity marriage is treated as a carnal and not a doctrinal position. When the Bible is only consulted for its covenant teachings on divorce, rules, and to settle disputes. Paul’s mystery message of Christ and the church is minimized in the larger conversation on what wifely submission really means in our cultural context.
Listen to marriage as taught from the Pauline perspective of right division and understanding the mystery of Christ. Marriage counseling begins with understanding the gospel and who you are in Christ. As you mature in doctrine you will see improvement in your marriage relationships. Learn how sound doctrine can affect your relationship with your spouse and why Paul interrupts his marriage lesson with a mystery about the church.
