Wedding performed in the garden




“Then the Lord God made a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Then the man said, ‘This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.’”

“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and unites with his wife, and they become a new family. The man and his wife were both naked, but they were not ashamed.”  (Genesis 2:22-25)

“For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”  (See Ephesians 5)

Not only did God make marriage to be between a man and a woman, He meant for it to be a sign of the relationship between Himself and His Church.  No matter what political changes are made to the institution of God's ordained definition of marriage, the original intent was the formation of a relationship that signified the relationship between Christ and His Church.  So, if a man replaces his bride with another man; and a woman replaces her husband with another woman, will their marriage continue to be a great mystery that signifies the relationship between Christ and His Church?
