A Cause for All Tennesseans

God-Given
Marriage

We are asking a simple Question

Is marriage an institution created and given to us by government, or is it God-given?

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Why do I need a government license to get married?” or “Do I really need permission from the government to be married?” What about this question, “If the government stopped issuing marriage licenses, would marriage be abolished?
 
Those questions may have never crossed your mind. We tend to just accept things the way they are. And for decades now, government officials have begun to see the licensure of marriages as the creation of marriage by government rather than a way by which government merely secures the rights the man and woman have in relation to one another, and to their children, if any, as a result of the duties their marriage creates.
 
But the truth is that marriage never came from the government to begin with. And for that matter, governments cannot “grant” a “right” to be married. That right is inherent in the fact that we were created by God, in His image, as males and females and we, therefore, are endowed with certain inalienable rights. And one of those is to marry.
 
We invite you to take a journey with us in rediscovering what marriage is and why only the union between a man and a woman is called marriage—it’s God-given.

“The Court invalidates the marriage laws of more than half the States and orders the transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia, for the Kalahari Bushmen and the Han Chinese, the Carthaginians and the Aztecs. Just who do we think we are?"

—Chief Justice John Roberts, dissenting, Obergefell v. Hodges

Pray with us for the upcoming

Tennessee Legislative Session

The 111th Tennessee General Assembly will reconvene on January 14, 2020, at 12 noon. During this legislative session, we will be working with state legislators to file the Marital Contract at Common Law Marriage Recording Act. This bill will be the first effort of its kind to remove from the government the power to control and redefine marriage and give it back to the men and women of Tennessee.
