This is a hot-button issue for me. I will add more posts on this topic under the tag Cohabitation. While my wife and I have not had a perfect marriage – we’ve had an improving marriage. And joining a Bible believing church was the step in the right direction.
I believe this short chapter in the Old Testament is loaded with meaning we can use today. This scripture ties these three elements together into a package we can all relate to.
To me what is worse is these attitudes in our church leaders. The credibility of our faith rests on our integrity. Even when we have point of view an unbeliever would disagree with, they will listen and not reject our faith as long as they can trust that we’re not into conspiracy theories.
