Marriage Already Redefined Many Times

in christianity •  last year


Marriage has been redefined several times over the centuries by preachers professing to be Christians:

  • Restrictions to female virgins and widows abolished.

  • Male polygamy abolished as Jewish Biblical marriage was abandoned for Roman pagan cultural marriage.

  • Race mixing bans became standard doctrine amongst American Baptists and other evangelicals during Golden Age of Christianity. A legacy of which is some American evangelicals, mostly old ones, still believe race mixing is a sin.

  • Race mixing ban abolished.

  • Roman Carbolic doctrines banning Biblical exceptions for divorce are adopted.

What next? Will Evangelicals give-in to growing demand for gay marriage?
