But the temptation to get romantically involved with a non-Christian tends to be framed differently.

” These words were written by Ben Weisman to be sung by Elvis Presley, but I’ve often heard a variation of them by unmarried Christians beginning to get romantically involved with a non-Christian.

1) Genesis 1: Marriage is to display God’s image by obeying God’s commands for fruitfulness and dominion. 2) Genesis 2: Marriage is a partnership in doing God’s work. Genesis –17 shows how Adam is prophet/priest/king in the garden kingdom where God has put him to rule within the constraints of God’s ultimate kingship (symbolized by the two trees: blessing and life for living under his rule; curse and death for refusing his rule).

In Genesis –28, God designs marriage to be a partnership in ruling creation under his rule. The rest of the chapter details how Adam is incapable of fulfilling his calling to be prophet/priest/king alone.

Why would a Christian choose to enter such a partnership? Genesis 3 shows how us how marriage gets messed up by sin.

Adam and Eve go from naked and unashamed to hiding from one another.
