Seek Those Things Which are Above

Seek Those Things Which are Above

Written By Ray Ortlund Think about your resurrection in Christ. First, let’s illustrate it this way. When God created the world, He created it with history already built in. The stars, and also the light from the stars – that light that takes thousands of light-years to get to earth – everything was created in one act. God created it “old.” When He created man, He created him, too, with history already built in. Adam was created a full adult;…

The Destructive Nature of Peaceful Parenting

The Destructive Nature of Peaceful Parenting

No one would say that children are better behaved than they were generations ago when parents weren’t afraid to discipline their children and say “no” to them. Now, there are a bunch of entitled adults running around acting as if the world revolves around them and feeling entitled to having anything they want when they want. A man who believes that “peaceful parenting” is the best way to raise his son wrote this on Facebook: “I have no interest in…

One Long Temper Tantrum

One Long Temper Tantrum

Written By Ken These past few years as Lori has been blogging she gets men who write looking for help with their difficult wives and she asks me if I can help. One of the things I have discovered is that although the behavior of these wives shows various levels of disdain for their husbands, the root of the contempt is often hurts from their past that get triggered leading to one long temper tantrum against their husbands lasting weeks,…

Wifely Submission as it is Fit in the Lord

Wifely Submission as it is Fit in the Lord

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18). I love reading and studying the Word every morning. Something new always gets my attention and yesterday morning “as it is fit in the Lord” popped out at me so I looked to see what Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible had to say about this phrase. (You can’t imagine, well yes you can, how much women fight us on this biblical concept!) “…as…

Ramblings on Affairs and Divorce

Ramblings on Affairs and Divorce

Affairs and divorce seem to be common among Christians these days and I have some ramblings I want to share with you about them. Divorce is becoming a pretty common thing now unfortunately. As soon as people have a problem in their marriage instead of trying to fix things, they go straight in to getting a divorce lawyer and there are loads that they could pick from. For example, they could easily go to someone like this Chicago Divorce Lawyer,…

Does Your Church Encourage Child Bearing?

Does Your Church Encourage Child Bearing?

Churches today seem to have lost their desire for children and no longer encourage their members to have children which is sad since God tells us that children are blessings from Him. One woman asked the women in the chat room if any of our churches encourage child bearing. Lindsay Harold responded, “Our church has a lot of families with several kids, but rarely have I heard a pastor encourage families to have more children and I certainly never heard…

Be Ye Angry and Sin Not

Be Ye Angry and Sin Not

How can we be angry and not sin? The Bible commands that we do not sin in our anger: Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath (Ephesians 4:26). A few verses later it tells us NOT to be angry: Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice (Ephesians 4:31). There are so many other verses about being at peace with all…

Law and Grace Cannot Co-Exist

Law and Grace Cannot Co-Exist

Written By Ken Alexander The Law and Grace cannot co-exist even as Christianity often times tries to make the two do so. Standing firmly on God’s Word is our goal and yet it is as hard to do as riding a horse bareback.  You can ride a long way at times tightly to the mane of your stallion, but it is almost impossible to get up the hills and through the woods without getting knocked off a couple times and…

Living a Long and Healthy Life

Living a Long and Healthy Life

Shirali Mislimov of Azerbaidzhan, U.S.S.R allegedly lived to be 168 years old and died in 1973. In researching his life, I found some interesting things. Now, I’m not interested in living that long but I do try to live as healthy as I can while I live. Yes, there are some things that have happened to me beyond what I could prevent like head and neck trauma that most likely caused my brain tumor and needing a neck fusion. But we…

Are Husbands Supposed to Submit to Their Wives?

Are Husbands Supposed to Submit to Their Wives?

Many people use the verse in Ephesians 5:21 to explain that husbands and wives are supposed to be mutually submissive. Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. I have heard this from the pulpit, from books, blogs, speakers, and teaching preachers on the radio. My question is how can that work in marriage when wives are commanded to submit to their husbands multiple times and husbands are never directly commanded to submit to their wives? I decided…
