Adam and Eve by Wenzel Peter On the Meaning of Love, Sex, Marriage, and Family - Genesis 1 and 2 Don preaches about the relationship between one's family experience and belief in God. He examines what the creation accounts in Genesis tell us about what it means to be created in the image of God, and in doing so sheds some light on the meaning of love, sex, marriage, and family. This helps us understand why Christianity has such clear guidelines for sexual ethics.
