What Happened To The Preacher?

I actually read this either yesterday or the day before. My Google Reader feed has been getting pretty jammed packed lately… But anyways I thought this was an interesting story, especially since it has to do with what I believe to be a God-ordained calling on a serious couples life, marriage. Anyways the story article shows a couple that is being married by a robot!  So as I was reading USA Today I noticed that this of course happened in Japan! The world’s mecca for robotics lol.

Now I understand that the Japanese population has been slowly declining in the last decade and that the Japanese are hoping that robots will be a temporary answer to helping the aging population, well at least thats the reason major newspapers are saying anyways. But I just think it is because they think robots are cool! lol jk jk

Anyways back on the serious note. Being a Christian, I think of marriage is a sacred act that God has blessed us with. Now I am just throwing out ideas, so I would love to hear your feedback. But does it not seem as though marriage is becoming something other than what God intended it? The title of this blog entry is “What Happened To The Preacher?”, now does this act show that marriage is changing to a brand new thing? I mean why cannot we have the preacher wed people, does it make the marriage less because an inanimate object is marrying the couple?

Quoting from Mark 10:6-9 NIV 6“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’[a] 7‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[b] 8and the two will become one flesh.’[c] So they are no longer two, but one. 9Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”.

Now I think this is just to show the little amount of Christian influence in Japan. Japan with current statistics show that 2% of the Japanese population are Christian.

Anyways I am linking the article at the end of this entry. I hope it stired some things up in you to think about. Thanks for reading
