Marriage and the Family Conference
Sponsored by Chafer Seminary
There is little doubt that God’s design for marriage and the family are under tremendous assault today from virtually every side. Modern marital and family life constitutes a great source of struggle for most. Many are even seeking to redefine these important institutions. Consequently, our culture finds itself in great confusion on these vital subjects. Yet, are these institutions really ours to redefine?
In such an environment, a fresh look at God’s blueprint for marriage and the family is desperately needed. Despite the contemporary moral chaos, we can observe that God’s eternal Word speaks directly to these very issues, just as it does to every area of life. Since God is the Author of these institutions, they are not subject to mere human redefinition and manipulation. God has a plan and program for each of them. Consequently, this seminar is dedicated toward retrieving the original design for marriage and the family (Gen. 1–2), explaining how this original design was marred due to the Fall of Man (Gen. 3), and then outlining the Scriptural path toward living out the original design of God in a fallen world (Eph. 5:22–33). To this end, we hope that you will take advantage of the sessions.
