Should we use a different term for the word "marriage"?

Since the word “marriage” and even the word “union” has become so secularized would it be a good idea to create a movement for Christians to use a different term instead of marriage? Though it is not very pretty saying I had a “holy matrimony”, “holy union”, or maybe even a “blessed marriage” could be better then saying you got married. I don’t think there is a biblical mandate that states we have to call the holy matrimony between a man and a woman a marriage so why not change it in more of counter-culture type of thing?

Moral Grounds

Before I get started, I want to give out a friendly hello and I am new here. I believe our moral obligations comes from the spirit of Jesus within us and it is there the reason why I am humbly here at your doorstep today.

NSA leaker, Mr Snowden, appears to have taken data that suggests the Spy network NSA invaded the privacy of their own American citizens. NSA claims it is Snowden who is a thief and so gave away precious info that NSA held high value to. What I find unique is the dilemma that both parties claim that the other performed an immoral act. That said, I wanted to examine the moral obligations both parties hold and to which side Jesus teachings would weigh heavily on.

Any thoughts?

For love…

Bringing the dead back to life may soon be a medical reality, with claims people may be able to be resuscitated up to 24 hours after their death.

Critical care physician Sam Parnia makes the claim in his book Erasing Death, saying resuscitation research is on the cusp of a major breakthrough within the next 20 years.

“With today’s medicine, we can bring people back to life up to one, maybe two hours, sometimes even longer, after their heart stopped beating and they have thus died by circulatory failure. In the future, we will likely get better at reversing death,” he told Germany’s Spiegel magazine. “It is possible that in 20 years, we may be able to restore people to life 12 hours or maybe even 24 hours after they have died. You could call that resurrection, if you will. But I still call it resuscitation science.”
