today’s marriages? christian or not?

Sunday, 8 October 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

after seeing a clip on the today show, i wondered what really is marriage. you see, apparently the today show had a contest where a couple was chosen to get married on the show. the audience, then, was charged to choose all the attire and destination. so friday was the big wedding day for this couple. the wedding was televised, and a presbyterian minister was invited to “perform” the wedding.

my question is what constitues christian marriage? was this just civil marriage, or is this christian marriage? here, on national television, the religious was exposed as the leader of this ceremony. and so, my question for the world wide community is: what doesn it mean to have christian marriage and what does it mean to have such a public wedding framed by christian liturgy? was this performance on the today show an act of living out one’s christian witness? or, could it be something else? perhaps just a feel good public ceremony?
