Learning About Marriage from Our Spiritual Fathers

Many churches have designated this coming Lord’s Day, June 28, as one to be focused on considering the critical subject of marriage. In an era of theological confusion and moral compromise we can gain much my looking to our forefathers in the faith. In many areas and in many ways the Puritans are a shining light to look back to and glean from. Not that they were perfect—far from it—but they were giants of the faith who sought to bring every part of life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. This passion of the Puritans was clearly seen in their theology of the family and marriage especially. Inheriting the Reformation spirit of returning to the Scriptures, the Puritans helped to clear away centuries of unbiblical tradition and man-made regulations and help us even today to see the beauty and glory with which God has endowed marriage.
