This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
St. Valentines Day will be here soon and as tradition has it, people will go to city halls to get married on that day. Some of the people are getting married for the rightreason, but many are not. God will be pleased with some of the marriages and with others He will not. Some people have no right to get married in the eyes of God and even though a court may pronounce one married that doesn't mean God is going to agree with that verdict and stamp His approval on the union (Isaiah 55:8). John the Baptizer was a great preacher in his day, and he let King Herod know that his marriage was not lawful in the eyes of God (Matthew 14:4, 19:6).
Anyone planning to marry should have a Bible study on the subject to see if he is eligible in the eyes of God to marry. And shame on those religious leaders who don't teach people the truth on the subject of marriage—these leaders ask no questions and offer no Biblical advice. You religious leaders, don't you think you ought to study the Bible with the people first? Do you let them know that the Bible teaches that there are three kinds of people who are eligible to marry? Those who have never married (Genesis 2:18). Those who are widowed (Romans 7:1–4). Those who have put their spouses away because that person committed adultery (Matthew 19:9). Or maybe you don't mind pronouncing "man and wife" upon someone who may not be worthy of the title? (Isaiah 5:20–21).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
