Passage: Matthew 19:3-12
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 48 mins 47 secs
Is marriage a covenant that is permanent and cannot be broken? Listen to this lesson to learn that marriage involves the marriage partners transferring their loyalty to each other. Learn the high standards for marriage dictated by God. Find out if infidelity mandates divorce and what happens when someone dislikes or hates their spouse. Learn the important exception clause and find out if there are other exceptions. See that in the Church Age Christians are to forgive one another and do all they can to work out their marriage problems while accepting that it is not always possible.

Passage: Matthew 19:3-6
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 25 secs
If you’ve been touched personally by divorce in your life or through your parents’ life, then this is a lesson that discusses thoughts that may be bothering you. Listen to what Jesus said about marriage when the Pharisees tried to entrap Him. Hear three basic things for us to remember about marriage and several questions that need to be answered. See that marriage is a covenant that involves obligations and that marriage is one of the tools God uses to help us grow to spiritual maturity. Keep in mind that no matter what has happened in your past, there is always grace and forgiveness through Christ’s death on the cross.

Passage: Matthew 5:27-32
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 55 mins 40 secs
Lust. Sexual immorality. Faithfulness in marriage. Does Biblical teaching about these make you squirm uncomfortably? Listen to this lesson to see how Jesus once again sets a higher standard than the Pharisees and scribes by focusing on what we think rather than what we do. See the meaning of "plucking out your right eye" and "cutting off your right hand". On the issue of divorce, notice how Jesus points out that we should think of marriage in terms of a lifelong commitment. Learn some Biblical reasons for divorce and remarriage and how when we make wrong decisions, God's grace still forgives us. Realize that personal righteousness is a heart matter, not a matter of rule-keeping.

Passage: Colossians 3:18 & Ephesians 5:22
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 52 mins 14 secs
The foundation of a good marriage is orientation to authority, humility, submission and imitation of Christ and relationships within the Godhead. These are applications that extend to all relationships at every age and marital status. Preservation of this divine institution is essential for our culture to survive and for sanctification to live itself out in our lives. Marriage is defined in scripture, not by starry-eyed lovers or embittered divorcees. Marriage is to fulfill the purpose of God. The only way to know that purpose is to seek advice from scripture. Biblical roles for men and women create clarity. Our culture has attacked these roles creating gender confusion and cultural degeneration. Be encouraged about what the Bible teaches about marriage. Live out His truth in our confused culture and know abundance in a God-defined counter culture.

This lesson also includes Genesis 1:26-28
