Marriage Sermon Series

Marriage is Temporary (Matthew 22:23-30)

The Sadducees ask Jesus about marriage in the Resurrection (heaven, eternity.) His answer bothers many Christians. He emphatically states that no one is married in heaven. Your wife will no longer be your wife; your husband will no longer be your husband. Why does this clear teaching bother us so much? Why we err Jesus’ answer bothered the Sadducees as well. The reason? They were ignorant of Scripture and the power of God. Although we think we have it figured…

Role Reversal (Genesis 3:6, 16; 4:6)

Role reversal The very first sin was a case of marital role reversal. Instead of leading and making the decision Adam followed Eve. Instead of supporting Adam Eve made the decision. Every single marital problem I have ever encountered has had its roots in role reversal. Submission is not the curse, it is the solution Many people have classified God’s instructions to Eve concerning submission as part of the curse; however, God is simply instructing Eve on how to avoid…

Singleness (1 Corinthians 7:6-8, 32-35)

Why study singleness? Most marital problems are personal and spiritual issues that existed in both individuals before they were married. What you struggle with as a single person will explode when you get married. We also have a wrong view of singleness; we believe that there must be something wrong with a person if they are not married. Also, our view of marriage is far more influenced by our culture than Jesus Christ. Everyone who is married was single first;…

But God used David after his adultery!!!

Quite often David’s adultery with Bathsheba is used by Christian people as a means of support or encouragement to those who have fallen into sin. There is no doubt that David repented and that God forgave Him and used Him for His glory. This is a tremendous testimony to the grace of God and His redemptive power. However, I feel that many times we shorten the narrative and ignore the consequences of his sin. Yes, Uriah died. Yes, David’s reputation…

The Government Should Have No Say in What a Woman Does with her Body

Recently I have seen a huge push by those who are pro-choice that the government should have no say so in what a woman does with her body. As a pro-life Christian, I completely agree. In fact, almost every single pro-life Christian I know would agree with that statement. In fact, the pro-life position goes even further. We do not want the government telling women or men or boys or girls or babies what they can do with their bodies.…

Don’t Let Your Pet Doctrine Destroy Your Soul

No matter where I go or who I talk to it seems like the majority of Christians in our culture are dissatisfied with their church or are having a hard time finding a good church to worship and fellowship with. Through these conversations it has become abundantly clear that the problem is not the church as an organization but those who profess faith in Christ. Almost every conversation or article about how bad the church is centers around one or…

The Emergence of Calvinism within the SBC

Quit Blaming John Piper for Calvinism: Why the resurgence of Calvinism in the SBC is the result of Adrian Rogers, Paige Patterson, Jerry Vines, and the other leaders of the Conservative Resurgence It would appear that there is a growing number of young Calvinists within various denominations but particularly the Southern Baptist Convention. This has encouraged some but alarmed others. Numerous voices have come out bemoaning this fact or rejoicing in this fact. I do not think that there is…
