The Oprah-fication of the American Christian Church continues. Trinity Church in Omaha, NE is now offering the "marriage you've always wanted" to the people of their church.
Here's what their website says:
Think Having a Great Marriage Is Impossible?!
Statistics can make us skepticle, but it really IS possible to have a great marriage!
And while we're not pretending to have it all figured out, we do believe there are some basics that - when given a chance - can go a long way in helping to build the marriage you've always wanted!
Join us for this life-giving series, with messages designed to help you learn about:
• How to prepare yourself for marriage
• Solid foundations for a satisfying marriage
• How to handle conflict with your spouse
• How to really love your spouse, in word & deed
Rather than preaching the foolishness of Christ crucified for our sins and risking the destruction of marriages by calling people to repentance and the forgiveness of sins, Trinity Church is off topic and offering something that Biblical Christianity does not necessarily offer.
Luke 14:26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
Luke 18:29 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 30 who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.”
1Cor. 2:1 And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
