This past Sunday (5/21/17), I taught part 5 of my church's relationship series. My topic was, what is now, the title of this blog.
I have had many conversations with many professing believers who have argued to me that God does not disapprove of “shacking up” (i.e. a couple living together like they are married without actually being married). Many professing believers may not even know how the Bible addresses this or if it even does or care if it does.
It is sad to see born-again children of God considering their options in marriage. After being married for eleven years this September, and going from literal hell to grace during the first nine years, I can empathize and also stand firm on God’s Word concerning hard times in marriage and possible divorce.
