I’ve thought for a long time that marriage is tough because the enemy hates it. He hates this institution that God has set up as a picture of Himself and His people. He called Israel His adulterous wife. He calls the church the Bride of Christ. I believe that the enemy attacks marriage so that he can give people a distorted picture of what Christ wants the church to be.
And now, with the most recent court ruling, the enemy is doing it again. He is distorting the picture of the family. We are children of the King with the church as our mother. This new “family” that’s trying to make it’s way into the acceptance of society can’t produce children, it can’t do anything “naturally” (the words of the Bible, not mine). Yet the enemy would like us to embrace this perversion of what God intends for His beloved.
