..... "marriages" that exist in so-called "pagan" societies? I've heard of practices by some missionaries wherein they perform [for lack of a better expression] "Christian" marriages for couples who were "married" before they were saved. While IMHO I wouldn't necessarily oppose such practices as this, is such a practice in line with "the Whole Counsel of God"? I've searched God's Word, but nowhere do I find any example of this actually occurring---with the possible exception(s) of Paul's counsel to the Corinthians in I Corinthians 9 and II Corinthians 6. IOW, such a practice might be a "good preference," but I'm not thoroughly convinced that it has to be a "command." Comments?
