How Do We Have Oneness in Marriage? Communication

Tom Clark1

Introduction Thoughts

Our two previous articles focused on pursuing “oneness” in marriage. The reason for these steps is that oneness in marriage is God’s design, and it is His calling despite our difficulties in marriage. In many marriages, even though we are still together (and not divorced), the “oneness” is missing. Sometimes we are basically separate from each other.

Here are important questions:

Opponents of Same-Sex Marriage Say Fight is Not Over

Don Brian Rita Dean Darryl

.MARKUS SCHMIDT of the Richmond Times-Dispatch covered last week's Clergy and Christian Leaders Summit hosted by the Virginia Christian Alliance to unite God's faithful to stand up and defend the institution of marriage, which God established as between one man and one woman in the Holy Scriptures.

Since Virginia Attorney General Herring's refusal to defend Virginia's Constitution, and supported by words from US Attorney General Eric Holder; the battle lines have been drawn.  Should Christians not rise to the call, the battle outcome looks bleak for what God has established which is being usurped by rebellious political leaders.

Marriage Should Be One Man One Woman

Joe Rogowskiweb

Letter to the Editor, Richmond Times Dispatch, February 10, 2014

Dear Editor:

On September 15, 2013 in his Metro column, Jeff Schapiro wrote about the looming "plot" by the Democratic Party to legalize same-sex marriage in Virginia. With amazing accuracy his forecasts are largely playing out at this moment.

What he didn't predict was the propaganda that would be disseminated by the Richmond Times Dispatch own Bart Hinkle. His repeated advocacy efforts for homosexual marriage are mostly dependent on questionable surveys, social engineering, and pressure politics. Hinkle's recent Op/Ed column was no exception.

How Do We Have Oneness in Marriage?

Tom Clark1

Oneness in marriage is God’s design and it is His calling to us despite our conflicts and difficulties in the marriage.

Genesis 2:24 (NAS)

A man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife;

and they shall become one flesh.

The issue here is things like, “Why will I do what it takes to make my spouse happy?” Or, “How can we have a genuine ‘oneness’ despite our difficulties?” How in the world can we have genuine oneness?

An Open Letter to Attorney General Mark Herring

Rita Dunaway

As a Virginian and an attorney, I am alarmed by the violence you have done to the integrity of the legal profession and to the institution of marriage by pitting the authority of your office directly against Virginia’s Constitution.

As your office’s website explains, it is your duty to serve as “the Commonwealth’s law firm.” Every attorney has a duty to zealously advocate his client’s position in court, and while there are limited circumstances in which he may be permitted to withdraw from representation, it would be inconceivable for him to then actively participate in the case being made against his client. In submitting a brief that argues that Virginia’s Marriage Amendment is illegal, this is, effectively, what you have done. And for no good reason.

Stable Marriage is Critical

Stable Marriage is Critical

It One of God’s Primary Designs and Callings

It is One of the Influences on Culture

It is One of the Influences of God’s Kingdom

We tend to view marriage as a form of personal pleasure and happiness. We fall in love with someone and we have the sincere feelings of love, and that leads us to marriage. But once we are married, over time the feelings of love are less consistent and harder to maintain.

To Have and To Hold: The Meaning of Matrimony

Rita Dunaway

Published in the Roanoke Times  As Virginia’s Marriage Amendment comes under attack both in the courts and the legislature, Virginians should be critically examining the question of why the state regulates marriage and whether its definition should be stretched to encompass committed same-sex couples. Having done that, we should consider what our answers mean for all marriages.

Oneness in Marriage is Biblical Marriage

Tom Clark1

In a former article we looked at the idea that unity in marriage is a form of displaying God. We also made a reference to Genesis 2:24-25:

Genesis 2:24-25
a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife;
and they shall become one flesh.
And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Virginia Christian Alliance Urges Governor to Abide by Marriage Amendment

Rita Dunaway

VCA has contacted Governor McDonnell to speak out about the potential use of state funds to provide marital benefits to same-sex couples in the Virginia National Guard who are legally married in other states.

Secretary of Defense Hagel recently announced that, as a result of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the Department of Defense would provide marital benefits to same-sex couples who are legally married.

Marriage is Designed for Unity

Tom Clark1

Unity Displays God

In a former article we looked at the idea that marriage is God’s design. A biblical perspective is that marriage is critical in two basic ways:

  1. Genesis 1:26-28 shows us that marriage is how we raise children, and raising children before God is an important strategy for extending God over the earth. This is what we saw in the previous article.
  2. Genesis 2:24-25 provides a description of marriage unity. Unity in marriage is part of God’s design, and one part of that is what we will see this time.

Marriage is God’s Design

Genesis 1:26-28

God blessed them (Adam and Eve); and God said to them,

"Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Bombshell! SCOTUS Fails Marriage Test as Divided Court Weakens Marriage, the Constitution, and Liberty



The Supreme Court of the United States' decisions yesterday to overturn a key provision of DOMA and to effectively kill Proposition 8 in California are profoundly disappointing to everyone who believes in marriage as only between one man and one woman, who seeks to live by Biblical teachings, and who respects our Constitutional principles and form of government.
