Chick-fil A Redux

I've been thinking about this for a few days. While looking back through Barry Danylak's great book, Redeeming Singleness: How the Storyline of Scripture Affirms Singleness, I couldn't help but reflect upon the ultimate reality we have in Christ. With regard to this whole debate regarding the definition and validity of marriage, I see Jesus' words as transcending controversy altogether:
Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven." - Matt. 22:29-30

I believe that if the evangelical church caught a greater vision of Christ with regard to this subject,  we might have a different message to share, one that doesn't just talk past or down to the other side of the debate. Like Jesus, we can take the dialogue to a higher level -- transcending cultural and socio-political trends.
