Answers for a Friend – Q&A about God’s Purpose and Presence Throughout Singleness and Marriage

Last updated on October 20th, 2016 at 06:11 pm

These are my answers to questions a friend had for me. I’m posting it all on my site because it’s convenient and lets me add links to the text easily. Plus the answers could help other people too.

M, these are great questions, and it’s good that you’re asking them and really seeking what the Bible says about the subject.
