Third talk in the series “Battle of the sexes”. Today Chris looks at the binding commitment of marriage and the relationship the man and woman should have with each other in marriage. To introduce the subject Chris takes a look at the overarching story of the bible and compares slavery with patriarchy as something of a temporary ethic we see disappearing throughout the pages of the bible. The conclusions are pertinent and that marriage needs the Holy Spirit and not defined roles and rules to make it successfully work. Comments welcome.
