Chris Wall • Genesis 2:18-24 NIV

“God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. A biblical family is brought together by marriage, blood, or adoption.”

In this series “Asking for a Friend” I hear many friends asking questions around the idea of humanity, marriage, gender, and family.

Of course, none of us have to look real hard to see how our culture is redefining family and gender roles.

At our church, we embrace the authority of Scripture. Around here we want God’s word to stand. In fact, God’s word is so significant, it shapes our beliefs and our practices.

I say this all the time, whenever I find a practice in my life that goes against Scripture, I am compelled to adjust my life to the word of God. Whenever I discover a belief that goes against the Bible, I am compelled to adjust my mind to what the Bible says.

Many of our friends are questioning what a family should be? We need to be prepared not only to answer them, but we need to honor God even while living in a modern world with changing definitions.

So, with this in mind, the question of the day is this: Is the family relationship established by God or is it a societal creation of man?
