This study proposes that most American marriages are cultural; however,
by faith in Christ, a couple’s cultural marriage can become Christian.

discussed in Parts I & II in my response to Rev. Jesse Gibson’s concern, I
argued that because every culture has a flaw due to our sinful nature from Adam
and Eve, God cares for every wedding, whether it be African or Western style. However,
He does not approve the ones that do not represent His nature. In this Journal,
I’ll summarize some of the marriages performed among the patriarchs, King David
and his son, Solomon, and a careful look at the Edenic marriage─the true

Last week, I continued
the discussion on God’s sovereignty, provided Scriptural references, and
reiterated its definition. In this
Journal, I will discuss the overview of God’s sovereignty. As I argued in my series, God is not confined

is not partial.
This Journal shows and
proves how God’s sovereignty bypassed the rights and privileges of the
firstborn, which was held in high esteem, in many cultures around the world,
including the Israelites.

I am grateful to
God for His strength that He has given me to write this Journal after several
weeks of its disappearance. I apologize for not being consistent with the
weekly journal for the following reasons: I have been very busy to complete my new book,A Godly Leader on Trial: A Fresh Look at
Nehemiah,which was finally released. There had been deaths in our family
back home in Liberia – my wife’s mother went to be with then Lord and my sister,
Maryou-pleah, also died of Ebola.
