THEOLOGY > Man > Marriage: Two Become One 


Marriage is the oldest institution, extending back to the Garden of Eden. According to the Scriptures God made man and then God made the woman, and subsequently “He brought her to the man” (Gen. 2:22); thus, marriage is ordained by God and was initiated by Him at the time of creation. Properly understood, therefore, marriage is Theistic: it is of God not man.

In marriage the two become one, the “two” being a man and a woman, and the “one” being the relationship that is formed by the two, a relationship that is comprehensive and profound. And for this relationship God has established principles to govern it, and by their acceptance and implementation these principles enhance the coming together of the two.

It is to be expected that the union between the husband and wife will be enlarged to include children, a heritage that is God’s doing. And in His Word He has revealed guidelines for the nurturing and disciplining of the children He gives.
