A while ago I decided to write a pro-Plural Marriage book. I took a different approach and wrote it in the form of a Church manual. The title is Celestial Marriage: Preserving Marriage and Strengthening Families. My hope was that the title would make the book more appealing to L-DS audiences. And being written in a manual format might make it easier to read for L-DS people. Nevertheless I never got around to publishing it. I’ll post these in honor of Plural Marriage Month which was actually last month.
The World is Attacking Marriage
“In the world today, many people dismiss and even mock marriage and the family. Amid such confusing and destructive voices, the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles provide the consistent voice of truth. They ‘solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children’ (see ‘The Family: A Proclamation to the World,’).
“Life’s greatest joys are found in the family. Strong family relationships require effort, but such effort brings great happiness in this life and throughout eternity. Even if you have not had a happy family life in the past, you can seek to have a happy, eternal marriage and a loving relationship with family members.” (True to the Faith)
Latter-day Saints Should Defend Marriage
As we progress closer to the second coming of our Savior; the adversary is increasing his fight against Celestial Marriage and the family. It the duty of all Latter-day Saints to learn of the essential principles surrounding Celestial Marriage. It is also their duty to defend these principles and give vocal objection to all who oppose God’s ordained pattern of marriage.
This book has been produced so that members of the Lord’s Church around the world may know what to do to stand strong against Satan’s influences. All Latter-day Saints are invited to read, study this book, and apply its contents.
Those who apply Heavenly Father’s laws in their lives will be blessed.
