Understand Marriage Analogies
Throughout Scripture, God uses analogies to illustrate spiritual truths. Marriage is one of the central analogies used to exemplify several divine relationships and basic points of doctrine. For us to change marriage standards to fit our ideas of what is acceptable would be to alter the truth that God wants to teach through these visual lessons. If Scripture were intended to be adapted to fit culture, it would mean that culture would have more authority than the Bible, and since culture is determined by man’s ideas, it would put man above God.
Divorce contradicts the truths that God uses marriage to illustrate.
