Living in a Culture of Excess

Living in a Culture of Excess

“Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:5). We live in a culture of excess. Most of us buy and have too much stuff. We have too much clothing. We eat too much. We spend too much time on social media. Some drink too much and watch TV too much. Most of us aren’t known for our moderation but God tells us that we should be known for it. What is moderation? “Let…

Don’t Compare Yourselves to Others

Don’t Compare Yourselves to Others

With social media so prevalent and overwhelming, it’s hard not for young women to become discouraged and discontent with their lives. They see women making videos of their perfectly clean and decorated homes, making meals from scratch, having big and bountiful gardens, homeschooling their well behaved children, and making a ton of money from the business they run out of their homes. I want to tell you all that no one can do everything perfectly. It’s impossible. Don’t believe everything…

Questions Asked of Me

Questions Asked of Me

A woman wrote an email asking me these questions so I thought I would make a blog post out of them. 1. What do you think of infertile women who choose to have a career because they can’t have children? It’s not what I think; it’s what God commands. Just because a woman is infertile doesn’t mean she has to have a career. There were many women in the Old Testament who were infertile for a long time (Sarah, Rebekah,…

Do NOT Be a Red Letter Christian

Do NOT Be a Red Letter Christian

Beth Moore tweeted this the other day: “My basic take on life thus far: If tons of folks say one thing and Jesus says another, I’d pretty well go with Jesus on it.” Sounds good, doesn’t it? But later, she clarified what she meant by writing: “No, I was not subtweeting the apostle but I would like to say something here. I believe wholeheartedly that ALL Scripture is inspired by God. Authoritative. Truth. But the persons themselves – Paul and…

Evangelical Leaders Caught Up in the Feminist Agenda

Evangelical Leaders Caught Up in the Feminist Agenda

A week ago Tuesday, while speaking to The Master’s Seminary student body, John MacArthur stated: “There seems to be less and less willingness to fight these days among many evangelical leaders. They seem to be capitulating to whatever the whims of the culture happen to be. And that is because we now are into about the fourth decade of pragmatism and it has sucked all the masculinity out of so many men who are unwilling to take a strong stand…

Living with Him and Has Children. Now What?

Living with Him and Has Children. Now What?

A woman asked me for counsel. Here is her situation: “I became saved after already living in sin with the father of my now two children. We are still not married. Since becoming saved, I have seen and learned why God wants us to be married before having children and living together. My partner, however, is not a believer and doesn’t see the need to ‘rush into’ getting married even though I want to honor God and do so. How…

Happiness is a Choice

Happiness is a Choice

Author Unknown A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

As she maneuvered her walker to the…

Heterosexuality is the Foundation of Patriarchy?

Heterosexuality is the Foundation of Patriarchy?

There’s a Bible verse that tells us that “in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils…forbidding to marry” (1 Timothy 4:1-3). We can clearly see the winds blowing this way in our culture, women. There’s an article written by a lesbian that states that heterosexuality is the foundation of patriarchy and has kept women subordinate for centuries. Women need to be freed from this bondage and be lesbians! Feminism’s…

The Bachelorette and the Purity Movement

The Bachelorette and the Purity Movement

The Bachelorette, Hannah, and the Purity Movement, Josh Harris, have made big news recently. Here are a few great quotes about both of these that I have found recently and wanted to share with you. “What do you expect when so many Christian churches have been preaching nothing but tolerance and love for so long, demanding nothing and offering false absolution in exchange for a few bucks in the plate? You can’t understand Christ if you don’t understand sin. Too…
