12.30.11 Quote of the Week

Posted: 12/30/2011 in In their own words

I haven’t been blogging much … but I have been reading a ton. I am planning on sharing some of my favorite quotes from what I’m reading on a weekly basis. Here is the first installment.

Topic: Marriage

The problem is not with marriage itself. According to Genesis 1 and 2, we were made for marriage, and marriage was made for us. Genesis 3 tells us that marriage, along with every other aspect of human life, has been broken because of sin.

If your view of marriage is too romantic and idealistic, we underestimate the influence of sin on human life. If they are too pessimistic and cynical, we misunderstand marriage’s divine origin. If we somehow manage, as our modern culture has, to do both at once, we are doubly burdened by a distorted vision. Yet the trouble is not within the institution of marriage but within ourselves.
