Unbroken Faith Ministries: A Hopeful Charge in Light of Chief’s Justice Moore’s Removal

playtime-cropped

With the sanctity of marriage under vicious attack by runaway despots and Chief Justice Moore removed from office in Alabama yesterday, it’s easy to grow discouraged at the state of our land. Yet the Chief’s legal counsel made a statement in his defense that we should take to heart: “The best antidote for unreality is reality.”1

A key point to consider is this: While we can’t deny the destructiveness that false notions of law and marriage have brought about, we must nonetheless recognize that the living out of a god-centered, mission-minded marriage brings hope and transformation to a culture, over time, that no lawless tyrants can quell. God’s command to Adam and Eve and His promise to Abraham must be remembered at this critical hour. To history’s first couple, the Almighty declared:

Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Gen. 1:28).

It was through fruitful, dominion-oriented marriage that the world was to be subdued then, and it is through fruitful, dominion-oriented marriage that the world is to be subdued now, even as the heathen rage.

One thought on “Unbroken Faith Ministries: A Hopeful Charge in Light of Chief’s Justice Moore’s Removal

  1. It was through fruitful, dominion-oriented marriage that the world was to be subdued then, and it is through fruitful, dominion-oriented marriage that the world is to be subdued now.

    So, what does a fruitful, dominion-oriented single life look like? And please don’t answer that it’s just about “supporting the ‘fruitful, dominion-oriented marriages”. 😉

    Seriously, while I understand what this article is saying, I would love it if it could acknowledge that not all of us in the church are married, or going to be.
