NEW EPISODE: 4 things every man wants in a woman. Are those who marry young more apt to divorce? What should my response be when my husbands tells me he wouldn’t look at porn if I would have sex with him more often? Is masturbation a bad a idea for women? Is common law marriage against biblical teaching?
Dear Pastor Mark,
I just finished listening to one of your archived programs where you stated that if a couple had been living together for many years and were faithful to one another maybe had children together were married in the sight of God and some states. I disagree with your statement. The verse you used to justify your opinion was John 8:1-11 where the woman who was caught in adultery was ‘OK’ with God because He forgave her.I do agree with that but he also told her to go and sin no more. There is not a statute of limitations on sin. Whether you fornicate for a day or many years you are still fornicating.
Marriage is a picture of Christ and the Church, it is a sacred relationship and should never be cheapened by a counterfeit. Marriage is a legal contract ment to protect the woman and their children from being taken advantage of, a recourse for the dependants should the man decided to break his covenant with his bride. Living together does not support any of those ideals and should be condemned as sin especially in the church and delt with it accordingly. I really enjoy your program and agree with most everything you say but I can’t agree with you on this.
God bless you and God bless your ministry,
