singleness – alarming truth

False assumption #6: Marriage is forever.

“I am declaring the temporary, secondary nature of marriage and family over against the eternal, primary nature of the Church.”

“I fear we have settled into our land and our culture and idolized family and idolized marriage.”

“I am declaring the radical biblical truth that being in a human family is no sign of eternal blessing; being in God’s family means being eternally blessed.”

“Relationships based on family are temporary; relationships based on union with Christ are eternal.”

~ John Piper
