Marriage is under attack in this secular world. It is time for Christians to stand up for marriage, family, and commitment. We must do all that we can to fight Satan and secularlism. Americans and people around the world must stand up for biblical principals. When we make marriage vows before God, we must honor our commitments. Jesus Christ has commanded his children to love one another no matter what--especially in marriage. Since We are Not of This World, our marriages should be true examples of love. Love is much more than a word; it is a commandment, an action, and a choice.

Thankfully, there were other Americans, including the city of Chicago who wanted this advertisement removed. Please read the article and look at this picture and pray that the people of this world, especially Christians, will honor God by making marriage the sacred institution He created.
Q. Is it possible to love some-one and not feel it?
A. It certainly is - because love is more than a feeling. It's primarily a decision. Couples who misunderstand this point will have serious problems when feelings of love disappear for a time. Couples who genuinely love each other will experience times of closeness, times of emotional distance, and times when they are irritated and cranky. That's just the way emotions operate. A couple's source of constancy must be a commitment of the will. You simply make up your mind not to be controlled by fluctuating and unreliable emotions.

Romantic Love vs. Real Love is from an Elder Wisdom Circle column is some of the worst advice I've ever heard from "wise adults." Instead of an elder giving good advice about true love and what marriage means, a selfish response is provided. Here is the very self-centered question of a divorced woman: Q. I am a 37-year-old single mom of two wonderful children. I would like to have a loving relationship with a new man and potentially re-marry, but find it difficult. My ex-husband lives close by and we talk to other every day regarding the children. He wants me back, but I have no passion or romantic love in my heart for him, and haven't for many years. However, I don't want to hurt him or our children. How do I break these chains of guilt and begin living for me?
THE COMMON LAW, DOMINION, AND THE FAMILY , by Brandon Vallorani, is an article from Biblical Worldview magazine. Vallorani discusses the breakdown of the family and freedom because of the breakdown of morality and the creation of no-fault divorce. Here's a quote: With the undermining of the marriage covenant by the no-fault divorce movement of the 1960s and 1970s has come the breakdown not only of morality and social order, but of an economic order based upon the primacy of the monogamous family. This has led to a net loss of liberty and prosperity, unprecedented in American history. The answer to America’s social, moral and economic ills is to return to the covenant family free-enterprise system ordained by the common law patterned after the laws of God.
