The 10 Commandments of Purity

Seems like everywhere we turn marriages are in trouble. Politicians, celebrities, the next door neighbour and yes church attender we here the tragic stories of marriages crashing to an end. Or just as bad people living & suffering in unhealthy marriages.

Next month at MKCC we will be launching a brand new series looking at the subject of marriage and relationships. - Iwantanewmarriage.

Today I read these 10 commandments written by Pastor Ed Young for his marriage.

1. I shall have no other human relationship before Lisa, including our children.
2. I shall remember our date night and keep it holy.
3. I shall honor Lisa on anniversaries and special days so that I may live long in the land the Lord has given me.
4. I shall not take the covenant of marriage in vain.
5. I shall not ride in a car or eat in a restaurant alone with a member of the opposite sex.
6. I shall not travel alone.
7. I shall not counsel a woman with the doors closed.
8. I shall not share the details of our marriage with others.
9. I shall not watch, read or expose myself to sexually explicit shows, books, websites, etc.
10. I shall remember the implications of committing adultery.

Think I still have work to do! I need to get Nicola to remind me the exact day of our wedding anniversary. Man I am in trouble.
