When Husbands and Wives Roles are Reversed

When Husbands and Wives Roles are Reversed

Written By Michael Pearl at No Greater Joy Dear Mr. and Mrs. Pearl, First of all, praise God for Created to Be His Help Meet! A woman at my church recommended this book to me.

Recently, I have gone back to work full-time…

The Lack of Discernment in Most People

The Lack of Discernment in Most People

Many people lack discernment. Even many Christians lack this important quality. What is discernment? Here’s the 1828 Webster Dictionary’s definition: “DISCERNMENT, noun The act of discerning; also, the power or faculty of the mind, by which it distinguishes one thing from another, as truth from falsehood, virtue from vice; acuteness of judgment; power of perceiving differences of things or ideas, and their relations and tendencies. The errors of youth often proceed from the want of discernment.” I saw this in…

Unless You Repent, You Too Shall Perish

Unless You Repent, You Too Shall Perish

On 9/11, I posted this tweet: “John MacArthur was asked why thousands died on 9/11. He answered by quoting ‘the wages of sin is death.’ We all have an appointment with death due to sin. It may be today or in many years, but we will all die. It’s part of living on this wicked planet. Believe in Jesus Christ.” This enraged many people. They accused me of being cold-hearted and not compassionate. How did Jesus respond when people asked…

Is Michael Pearl a Pelagian

Is Michael Pearl a Pelagian

People have accused me of being a Pelagian even when I had no idea what it meant. Years ago, we attended a week long conference with Michael Pearl teaching Hebrews. It was fantastic! I went on to listen to all of his teachings of many of the books in the New Testament. I love his teachings. Do I agree with him 100 percent? No, but I don’t agree with anyone 100 percent, and I bet you don’t either. He is…

Making Sense of It All

Making Sense of It All

Written By Michael Pearl The utopitarians are trying to establish what God has already promised to institute, a kingdom of peace and happiness in a paradise where all share in the bounty of a renewed earth. They, too, want that kingdom, but since there is no god to determine man’s destiny, it is up to them to institute this kingdom. They abort babies to prevent increased population from placing further stress on an already overtaxed planet. They must purge society…

Back Before the Sixties

Back Before the Sixties

Before 1960, women couldn’t abort their babies lawfully, therefore, unborn babies were protected in their mothers’ wombs. The majority of women didn’t attend college before the sixties. Most of them were married at a young age, began having children since birth control wasn’t widely used nor available, and were full-time homemakers. Marriage was sacred back then. Most people married, and they married for life. Divorce was rare. Children were raised in two parent homes. The husbands worked hard to provide…

Today is My 63rd Birthday!

Today I turn 63. I love celebrating my birthdays and growing older. I am thankful to have lived for another birthday. I almost died at 45 years old from a brain tumor that causes sodium wasting disease. I almost died from it a few times since then, but God wasn’t finished with me yet. I am thankful I was able to finish raising my precious children. I am thankful I was able to dance with my sons at their weddings…

Finding Time for the Lord in the Busyness of Life

Finding Time for the Lord in the Busyness of Life

“Hello, I was wondering if you have done or will do an article on how women having jobs and their relationship with Jesus suffers, because they don’t have enough time for Him or having trouble hearing Him. Having too much of the world’s static swirling around in our thoughts. Lisa” Hi Lisa, Most women don’t seem to have enough time for the Lord whether they are in the workforce or not. This is why they are so easily deceived by…

My Mom’s Best Friend Fell Down the Stairs

We went to visit my mom’s best friend who is 90 years old recently. Her husband is 92 years old, and they look great! They rented the apartment over their garage to this woman who had two children. She was addicted to heroin. One day, she left and didn’t come back. After three months of waiting for her, they went into her apartment to begin cleaning it out. There were two cats in there who were still alive! They must…

Social Activism Will Never Bring Peace

Social Activism Will Never Bring Peace

Written by Dave Hunt in “Beyond Seduction: A Return to Biblical Christianity” The early Christians went forth “preaching peace by Jesus Christ” (Acts 10:36), not crusading against weapons or demonstrating for a humanistic “peace.” Their message was that we have “Peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1) because He “made peace through the blood of his cross” (Colossians 1:20). This simple gospel that brings peace with God into individual hearts is the only hope for peace among…
