What I Believe About Marriage

What I believe about marriage is based on my belief that the Bible is the Word of God, that it is true, and that it is the primary way God reveals His truths to us. I’m not a theologian, but what I write here is primarily a result of my lengthy and ongoing pursuit of what God’s Word has to say about marriage.

Marriage beliefs are not a salvation issue. Jesus is the only salvation issue, and there is no compromise on that. However, I don’t condemn or judge others who see marriage differently than I do. In fact I welcome respectful dialogue and the open exchange of ideas.

You’ll find some summary level information on my marriage beliefs in the pages in the About menu.
