For the last several years, we’ve had a front-row seat to a vicious, violent attack on one of the Lord’s most precious institutions. And make no mistake about it—the family, as established by the Lord, is under attack.
The assault is waged on many fronts—homosexual marriage, pervasive immorality, rampant divorce, and even the widespread acceptance of unwed couples and children born outside of marriage. They all chip away at God’s design for the family. The Lord created marriage as an image of His love and care for His people—our sinful society has turned it into a canvas for wickedness and perversion.
