The Marriage Course?

  103 views

Has the Marriage Course by Nicky and Sila Lee been endorsed by the CRC? While the website states its based on Christian principles it does not list those nor does it make any scriptural references to the Bible/Gospel.

Have any CRCs run the course?

Hi Michael,

CRCNA has not, as far as I am aware, formally approved (or disavowed) any pre-marriage or marriage or family programs of this nature. 

That being said, my wife and I have used The Marriage Course that you referenced and found it to be solid. We still use it as a resource. The best way to look at their program is that it is Biblically consistent (i.e. not contrary to scripture.) Their videos in the past have had a scripture read at the end of each lesson. However, they do not misuse the Bible as a textbook for marriage preparation, which I appreciate. They also do this to avoid over saturating their teaching with scripture references and thus alienating non-Christians or seekers from their materials. This allows The Marriage Course to be used as a first contact point with non-Christians. If you are looking for a program that primarily answers the question, "What does the Bible say about marriage?", you'd be better off looking at another program.  

Thanks Michael. Do you know if their updated material still has the scripture reading?

I took a quick look at their website and found two video sessions on their website. Based on those two, they have replaced the scripture reading with a prayer.
