In today’s conversation about marriage and sexuality, both inside and outside the church, most people know what the Bible says. But do they know why it says what it does? Why the restrictions? What’s the purpose? Don’t we have freedom . . . to do with our bodies what we will . . . to love whomever we choose to love?
In The Mystery and the Masterpiece, Randy Blankenship, Sr. shows a Biblical portrait of marriage. From cover to cover the Bible presents marriage as a masterpiece. Even in the church, it seems to have been a mystery. But it is a beautiful portrait painted by God for the purpose of revealing the kind of relationship He desires with mankind.
If we only have information, but don’t see the picture, we miss the beauty of the masterpiece. We miss the message marriage was designed to teach us.
The Mystery and the Masterpiece will not only help existing and future marriages, it will help people to be able to talk about marriage and sexuality presenting a viewpoint not with anger or acrimony, but speaking the truth in love.
