​”The Family”

January 21, 2018

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” [19] Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. [20] The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. [21] So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The Lord God fashioned t into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. [23] The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” [24] For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. [25] And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2:18-25

1 God understood it was not good  for man to be alone.

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. [28] God blessed them; 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 am on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

2) Man was made complete when God made woman.

The Lord God fashioned t into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. [23] The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” [24] For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

Genesis 2:22-24

3) God made marriage to be between a man and woman.

Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. [25] For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. [26] For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, [27] and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. [28] And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

Romans 1:24-28 

Or do you not know that the unrightous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, f nor homosexuals, [10] nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:9-1

God blessed them; and God said to them ” Be fruitful and multiply… ”

Genesis 1:28

4) God intends for a husband and wife to enjoy sex.

Now the man had a relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, 

Genesis 4:1

But if they do not have self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 

1 Corinthians 7:9

 “Like all powerful lies it is based on a truth… That sex itself…is ‘normal’  and ‘healthy’ …The le s consists in the suggestion that any se,i am act to which you are tempted at the moment is also healthy and normal” C S Lewis
