Day 6: Marriage, Life, and Family

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

Marriage, Life, and Family are a holy and inseparable trinity.
        To attack one is to attack all.

It is no coincidence that the legalization of abortion
        and the first no-fault divorce laws
                happened simultaneously.

Nor is it surprising that 7 of 8 abortions occur outside of marriage.
        The sanctity of human life is the sanctity of marriage.
                It is God's own holiness.

O God, who has created man and woman and has ordained them for the married estate, has blessed them also with fruits of the womb, and has typified therein the sacramental union of Your dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the church, His bride: We beseech Your unfathomable goodness and mercy that You would not permit this Your creation, ordinance, and blessing to be disturbed or destroyed, but graciously preserve the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Martin Luther)
