Marriage—a Social Institution?

by on


This is Ken Ham, heading up the ministry that built a full-size Noah’s Ark.


Many people today believe marriage is just a social institution. If this is true, then marriage has evolved–so it can evolve again as our society changes. But marriage is actually God’s institution.

You see, marriage was the first institution God ordained. In Genesis, we read that God created male and female in His image, and that “the two become one flesh” in marriage. We can’t just re-define marriage however we want because marriage was created by God; therefore, only God has the authority to define marriage.

Marriage is for one man and one woman for life. Scripture makes this clear. So-called same-sex “marriage” is just a counterfeit.
