Article Series by Paul Mastersrings

Today’s Western culture has become a seething cauldron of conflicting values and definitions, and the foundational element of marriage and family have not come through the chaos unscathed. As a matter of fact, while conservatives claim the goal of protecting the institution of marriage, the Biblical truth is that they are nearly as guilty as the liberal crowd of corrupting it. This series of articles seeks to compare Western “traditional” marriage values against Biblical marriage values in order to help Christians understand where they stand, and help them find a position more in keeping with the will of God.
