Marriage is not up for debate; marriage simply is.

Today the meaning and purpose of marriage has been lost, and it is our fault. The prevalence of pornography, divorce, pre-marital sex, cohabitation, infidelity, and a thousand other mistakes have blurred our vision of God’s plan for sex, family, and society to the point of blindness.

The task before us is not merely to argue against the lie of same-sex marriage. Though that it is necessary, ours is a much larger project. It is time to restore among our people a sense of the profound beauty, mystery, and holiness of faithful marital love. It is time to recognize the time for defending the institution of marriage has passed. Sadly, for far too many, the marriages they know are not worth defending. Instead, Christians must take up the mission to renew and rebuild a culture that values marriage and family.

To do so, we must first understand what marriage is and why it matters.
