Contract vs. covenant marriage

“People would be mortified if they went to a marriage and their vows were contractual.”

Matt Chandler responds to the culture of marriage that demands a 50/50 partnership rather than an unconditional love that we see modeled in Christ Jesus.

Chandler is the lead pastor of teaching at The Village Church, in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. He is president of the Acts 29 Network.
