Biblical / Traditional Marriage is … what exactly?

“Biblical” marriage (or biblical _insert topic here_) is often much harder to define than American Evangelical culture wants us to believe (and thus, vote). 

The image below has been making its way around the internet, and it illustrates nicely just how sticky a wicket “biblical” marriage is. 

This election season, we will undoubtedly hear more than our fill about what the bible says about marriage and how that should impact our laws, how we ought to vote, and so on. 

I think there are compelling arguments from different and even opposing perspectives within the Christian, and I respect any position that is argued fairly, lovingly, and compassionately. But regardless where you or I fall on the issue, we would do well to remember the complexity of the issue – both now, in our contemporary culture, and in the distant past, where and when our Scriptures were written.
