1 Corinthians 7
In this Bible Points Podcast we discuss dating.
In Ephesians chapter 5 we find that marriage is a picture or portrait of the relationship and union that Jesus Christ has with His bride, the Church.
In a nutshell, marriage is all about honoring God who instituted it. It is not only about satisfying ones desire for companionship but mirroring the glory of Christ and His bride the Church.
The Scripture teaches the purposes of God are accomplished in marriage. But it also teaches that there are advantages to remaining single.
In Pauls letter to the Corinthian church, chapter seven, Paul writes to answer some questions that were sent to him from the believers in this city; some of the questions were about singleness.
