How do we respond to people who hate what we believe as Christians? Listen to this beginning lesson in a series on marriage as you face friends and family who wonder why you object to "gay marriage". Hear the thoughts of a number of famous Americans who through the years have legally defined marriage and its importance to the well being of the nation. See that arguing will not convince anyone but rather find out that your defense must come out of your ultimate beliefs about reality. As you encounter those who think Christians are purveyors of hate, see that you must treat them in kindness as you point out the truth of God’s Word.

Do what makes you happy. Is that the best way to live?

Learn that marriage has always been under assault because it is an institution established by God to promote freedom and virtue and training for the next generation. Hear about eleven benefits of marriage the way it was planned by God. See that failure in marriage does not indict the institution of marriage. Learn about assaults on marriage recorded in the Bible, including the one in Sodom. Understand that not only sexual sins but all sins are an abomination to God and deal with those involved in them by giving them the gospel in a loving manner.
