You Can’t Have It Both Ways

In God’s view you can’t be partly married or partly single any more than you can be partly pregnant. You’re either one or the other. What a plague on society when single people live together as though they were married or when married people act like they’re single.

In God’s view the issues are pretty simple: “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral” (Hebrews 13:4). Contrary to what many today think, the Sixth Commandment, which forbids adultery, has not been repealed.

God’s ways are beautiful, fulfilling, and they work. Every alternative that sinful human beings have invented has turned out to be unfulfilling, hurtful, self-oriented, and destructive. Seriously—don’t you have enough problems in life without asking for God’s judgment too?

You honor God’s creation of marriage not only when you are married but also in the way you conduct your dating life.


Navigate your relationships with confidence!

Whether it’s in marriage, church, the workplace, or dating, we all have moments when we need help navigating relationships. That’s why we want to send you a brand-new book from Time of Grace called Walking Together: Focused on Jesus.

A relational tool that speaks as a friend, Walking Together shares life-learned biblical principles so you can walk with confidence in any relationship by keeping your eyes fixed on the highest example of a true relationship ever: Jesus.

We’ll send you Walking Together to thank you for your gift today to help reach more people with the timeless truths of God’s Word. Thank you!
