Who Ordained Marriage?

Hello! Here an excellent sermon by Jason Cooley, pastor of Old Paths Baptist Church in Minnesota. Recently I came across this sermon on Sermon Audio while I was looking for a sermon by someone else. Enjoy!
Who Ordained Marriage: God or State?

Here's another excellent sermon in regards to marriage by Jason Cooley, as well:
Covenant Marriage vs. Contract Marriage

The thing about the marriage license is when you do that you are giving  the government jurisdiction over that marriage which is supposed to be God's jurisdiction. I can see how it would provoke the Lord to jealousy. It's placing the government as God when you have no need to ask them to do something that has already been established by God. Bro. Jason Cooley goes through the passage in the NT (Ephesians 5?) talking about how Christ is the head of the church and the husband the head of the wife. Since that is the case how could someone get a marriage license  knowing this? If Christ is the head then how can someone be willing to allow the government have jurisdiction with marriage and incorporating the church? It's a spiritual matter not just physical.  The whole Romans 13  thing has been misapplied for such a long time. The Nazi's started using that first so that the people would submit to them. Brother Cooley has several sermons on Roman's 13/Church incorporation. 
And it doesn't matter whether some states allow covenant marriage or not. God ordained  marriage so they have no business trying to commercialize marriage so they can get more money and to have control when God never gave it to them in the first place in the Scriptures.

Reformation began with Christ (Hebrews 9:8- 11, KJB) and it is our duty as born-again Christians to keep reforming. To keep ourselves from becoming filthy and accepting the world's ungodly doctrines and teachings. We must stay vigilant and stand for what is true and right according to God's perfect, inspired Authorized Bible- the KJ.
