Marriage

Timothy Goeglein of FOCUS ON THE FAMILY writes, “Marriage exists in all human cultures for the interest of the woman, the mother, making sure that the man who fathers her children is attached to her in a way that protects and provides for her….Marriage—and particularly monogamy—socializes men, protects women from unattached males, regulates sexuality, and ensures that the people who create the babies are the one who provide for and raise the babies….Every breathing, wriggling human baby that makes a debut upon the earth is a flesh-packaged message from creation that man and woman as a functioning unit is a fantastic idea….The legalization of same-sex marriage and the resulting same sex family, however, brings all these basic human realities into question….This is a radical deconstruction of humanity…..A loving and compassionate society always come to the aid of motherless and fatherless children; it never intentionally creates them.”  Peace Lutheran Church affirms this view of marriage.  Sunday service time is 10:00 a.m.
