We celebrated the 4th in our traditional way, with our 4th trip to West Point for the 4th of July Fun Run. This year I actually got to walk it too, I’ve only done that one other time since I’ve usually been pregz. I’m also proud to say I didn’t forget the baby’s bottles, have to drive the 45 minutes home and back and miss the entire race. Go me!

Marriage in a Godless Culture

July 2nd, 2015 by Aubri

Last week Phil presented the lengthy version of his opus on Marriage, “Marriage in a Godless Culture” at the Nebraska Lutherans for Confessional Study gathering in Lincoln. Timely indeed.

Briefly to pique your interest:

This paper will give a comprehensive definition, history, and theological description of marriage.  The major focus will be on the role of government and Church in relation to marriage and how Christians should view the legal redefinition of civil marriage.  It will analyze the exegesis of Eph. 5 and the implications for understanding marriage.  It will also describe how to see male/female roles in light of the Gospel and contrast them to emotional love.  This paper will deal with the sins of homosexuality, cohabitation, adultery, divorce, and premarital sex.  The biblical, Lutheran view of marriage will be contrasted with that of Rome, Geneva, and modern pagan culture.

I told him he HAD to open with this clip but he opted out.

You can download and read the paper HERE or if you’re busy and have a lot of laundry to fold you can listen to it the presentation he gave by using the player below or downloading the mp3 HERE.
