“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). We are all “man”, as in “human”, and we are either male or female since God separated the genders. We are all created in God’s image and likeness (Genesis 5:1). Marriage is a partnership where two people become one flesh – both working together to tend the garden and our families properly with love not fear. Considered in that image, our family is a part of Jesus’ vine within the garden, with branches of children and generations of families running through time. God expects us to keep our generations perfect. There can be no “secret” family members. The entire family unit is kept intact and all members are valued. Our children are our future.
