- It was designed to be a covenant good. Heres what that means. See, in a covenant, when you have made a promise, sex becomes like a sacrament. Its like a sacrament .. an external, visible sign of an invisible reality. Its an external symbol of an invisible reality. Thats why its so meaningful.” — Tim Keller
- The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, And It’s Not What You Think
- “Divorce is never the intention of God for our marriages. We can make such a general statement on the basis of the Biblical evidence. But there are some situations in which divorce seems inevitable as a last resort for the Christian. … Christ could heal our marriages; there is no doubt about that. He has conquered our sin by his death and resurrection.… Divorce is never ‘good,’ never ‘right,’ never ‘justified’ in the eyes of God. …there is indeed forgiveness and acceptance and the opportunity of a new life, even in a new marriage, offered by the gospel. God tells us that he can make all things new.” — Elizabeth Achtemeier
