Divorcing a Persistent Porn Addict?

Divorcing a Persistent Porn Addict?

Gary Thomas wrote an article entitled Dear Church: It’s Time to Stop Enabling Abusive Men. He gives a few examples where divorce is the only option. “Her husband is a persistent porn addict watching videos from websites similar to hdpornt com constantly. He has neglected her sexually except to fulfill his own increasingly bent desires. He keeps dangling divorce over her head, which makes her feel like a failure as a Christian. He presented her with a list of five…

Never Take Him for Granted

Never Take Him for Granted

A woman’s sister-in-law had posted this on Facebook. She gave me her permission to share it with all of you. Little backstory, she lost her husband in 2012 in a work related accident, leaving her with eight children to raise by herself. ~~~~~~ We did it again. The water heater gave out on us, so we boiled water on the stove top, and the children found out how to survive without hot water at their fingertips. Yes, they did say,…

My Comment Policy

My Comment Policy

Normally, I don’t write posts on Saturday and Sunday but I felt compelled to write one today to explain my comment policy. I have done this in the past, but it needs to be explained again. My blog is a teaching blog. I am not going to publish comments that teach things that are contrary to what I teach. If you have an honest question, that is great, but I get comments that are longer than my post explaining why…

Women Prophesying in the Church

Women Prophesying in the Church

Whenever I teach that women are commanded to not be preachers/teachers of the Word but to be silent in the churches as the Apostle Paul has taught, invariably I have women tell me that women can prophesy in the church because of 1 Corinthians 11:5. “But every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.” Years ago, I listened to Michael Pearl teach 1 Corinthians and he taught…

Why Do Women Despise Being the Weaker Vessel?

Why Do Women Despise Being the Weaker Vessel?

“Why do you think women despise the biblical term “weaker vessel” in describing women?” I asked this question to the women in the chat room and here are some of their replies. “When I was much younger, I had the mentality that ‘I can do anything a man can do. I don’t need a man.’ Sure I always thought about getting married, but I didn’t look at it from a biblical perspective and how valuable each gender is…the strengths of…

Should Women Teach the Bible in Public?

Should Women Teach the Bible in Public?

As many of you know, I have become convicted about teaching the Bible (theology) to women. I love learning from God’s Word and want to know the truth of it above all. I teach all of the biblical principles of godly womanhood which includes a lot of Bible verses but I don’t claim to be a theologian, pastor, elder, or deacon since God has made it clear in His Word that men are to be the preacher/teachers of the Word….

Withholding Sexual Intimacy From Husbands

Withholding Sexual Intimacy From Husbands

This was a comment by Trey on my post Giving Men a Voice on Being Starved for Sex. There is not enough plain talk in the world theses days. Here are some plain words, spoken in love, to all of you women out there. Too many women want to try and make this a complex issue and discuss it (ad nauseam) from every possible angle. They have a thousand excuses for why they don’t “want” or “feel” like having sex…

Feminists are Weak Women

Feminists are Weak Women

Feminists are not strong women as they suppose. They are weak. Strong women don’t get offended at every little thing that disagrees with what they believe. “Modern feminists are afraid of life. They are afraid of differences of opinion, and especially afraid of men.”* Feminists women don’t have the strength to be submissive to their husband. It takes strength to obey our husbands and give up our desires for our husbands and allow them to be the leader of our home….

A Brawling (Quarreling), Scolding Woman

A Brawling (Quarreling), Scolding Woman

From Matthew Henry Commentary See here, What a great affliction it is to a man to have a brawling scolding woman for his wife, who upon every occasion, and often upon no occasion, breaks out into a passion, and chides either him or those about her, is fretful to herself and furious to her children, and, in both, vexatious to her husband. If a man has a wide house, spacious and pompous, this will embitter the comfort of it to…

Mutual Annoyances and Daily Pinpricks

Mutual Annoyances and Daily Pinpricks

Since my grandchildren left The Screwtape Letters on my coffee table, I have decided to write a post on all the chapters that seem applicable to what I love to teach, namely anything concerning women. From chapter three, this man that the Devil and his helper are working on has become a believer so they are trying to find ways to make him fall away from the faith, namely, hoping he has shallow roots when any type of hard times…
