This pamphlet is a sermon, revised slightly, but a sermon nevertheless; a sermon made for the churches, where Professor Engelsma preaches many Lord's Days.
When this sermon was preached in Hudsonville PRC, late in 1997, a decision was made shortly thereafter to give the sermon larger audience by means of a pamphlet. The urgency of the subject and the clarity of the message pressed us to spread the word widely.
It is a sharp sermon, but God's Word is often sharp. Discipline is painful--family discipline, church discipline, personal discipline. This sermon is God's discipline of us by the Word. Perhaps the reason that we cannot hear these words easily is that we are not accustomed to any discipline. But the pain of hearing it does not lessen the importance of spreading this message far and wide, for the glory of God and the saving of marriages.
May God's Word, written or spoken, preserve us in our marriages, for God's sake.
