Stand Tall in the Moral War

Stand Tall in the Moral War

Written By Michael and Debi Pearl Fifty years ago when Mike and I first started teaching our children at home (illegal at the time), we met with resistance from friends, family, and later from the authorities. The primary objection of the professional class was best summed up by a midwestern judge who said, “We cannot allow children to be schooled in the home, for they will not fit into the modern world order.” Public school is all about constrained conformity….

Doctors, Drugs, and Demons

Doctors, Drugs, and Demons

My mom grew up in a church where doctors, drugs, and demons were synonymous. Her mom raised seven children without ever taking them to the doctor. Her home remedy for almost everything was warm water with fresh lemon and honey. Then my mom married a doctor. She developed ulcerative colitis when I was very young. She went to a doctor who put her on only “white food” and steroids, and told her that there was no cure. She grew sicker….

Can Women Pray and Prophesy in the Church?

Can Women Pray and Prophesy in the Church?

Many will use this one verse to argue that women can pray and prophesy in the church: “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head” (1 Corinthians 11:5). What does prophesy mean? God’s Word tells us exactly what it means in 1 Corinthians 14:3. “But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.” Later, in this chapter, we are told this: “For ye may all prophesy one by one, that…

Is Wearing Jewelry Sinful?

Is Wearing Jewelry Sinful?

Years ago, I watched a man on a video share something that I had written. He wanted to first make it clear that he didn’t approve of my wearing jewelry. He was using the first picture I used of myself on my blog, my first book, and my social media. It’s from one of my children’s weddings. Is it sinful to wear jewelry? “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of…

Can You Imagine?

Can You Imagine?

Written By Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies Can you imagine what the world would be like if God’s people had not limited the size of their families? The land would be filled with righteousness and the image of God. We would have a landslide for righteousness at voting time. Can you imagine what this nation would be like if all God’s people would start embracing children now instead of aborting and stopping them coming into the world? Can you imagine…

College Has Only Hurt Women

College Has Only Hurt Women

Women owe two thirds of the student loan debt. They owe more than a trillion dollars in debt. The entire “send young women off to college” has been a disaster for women and society at large. From the time a girl is young, she is asked what she wants to be when she grows up, and it’s always a question about the career she will pursue. So she grows up pondering what she wants to do out in the workforce….

The Loss of Human Interaction

The Loss of Human Interaction

A neighbor of mine has been in the hospital for three weeks and hasn’t seen his wife or children at all. Another young woman was in the hospital for six weeks before she passed away. She was only allowed to see her husband for 15 minutes on their anniversary. Something is terrible wrong with this. I wonder how many people in hospitals are passing away due to loneliness and no human contact. The patients no longer even receive warm smiles…

Detaching From the World

Detaching From the World

This world is not our home. I have said and written this a LOT lately but we, as believers in Jesus Christ, need to be reminded of this as we see our nation crumbling under the Leftist agenda. We used to be able to watch a television program without leftist propaganda in it and abominations being pushed down our throats. We used to be able to watch sports without any politics or agenda being pushed upon us. We used to…

Our Hope in Times of Trouble

Our Hope in Times of Trouble

Written By Ken The story of life since the beginning of time is one of hope in a time of trouble. Inherently built into man is the strength and ability to adapt, change, and overcome one’s circumstances. Just think about all of the turmoil of past centuries and then realize that the last hundred years of America have been perhaps the very best utopia mankind has ever experienced. Unfortunately, this past election and all the turmoil that goes with it…

A President Who Stands For the Life of the Unborn

A President Who Stands For the Life of the Unborn

This is the main reason that I love President Trump. He is the only President that spoke in person at the March For Life and just released this memo yesterday. Any nation that doesn’t value the life of the unborn is wicked and destined to fall. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy…
