Teach Us to Number Our Days

Teach Us to Number Our Days

This was written by my pastor. “So teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 This last month has been especially challenging as we have experienced the deaths of several members and family of members. As I have met with families, prepared funeral services, and been involved in officiating them, I have once again been reminded of some biblical truths that we don’t often think about in our daily lives….

No Boundaries For Us

No Boundaries For Us

In our over 41 years of marriage, we have never had boundaries. No, we didn’t have boundaries about privacy when using the restroom. We are considerate of each other. If one walks in on the other, it’s no big deal. We would never get angry about this. We didn’t have boundaries with our parents. They knew they were welcome in our home whenever they wanted to come over. My 91 year old dad stops by often and unannounced. We have…

The Differences Between Male and Female

The Differences Between Male and Female

There is a video that clearly shows the differences between males and females. I will briefly summarize the videos findings here. The average skeletal muscle of females is 46.2 lbs. The average skeletal muscle of males 72.7 lbs. Men have stronger bone structure, a slightly bigger heart, and far higher testosterone levels, ten times the amount. Zuby, a UK based rapper, broke the British women’s weightlifting records, and he’s not even a power weight lifter. Those who want to be…

Taking One Verse to Negate Many Others

Taking One Verse to Negate Many Others

Our pastor taught us that “The Bible is a better interpreter than any commentary. Scripture is truly the greatest interpreter of Scripture.” This is so true! Many are so good at twisting Scripture to say what they want it to say rather than examining the context of the passage and cross referencing it with other verses to find out the author’s intent and what the author actually meant. Let’s take a look at a verse and how many take it…

Happiness Doesn’t Come From Circumstances

Happiness Doesn’t Come From Circumstances

She wrote and told me that her husband isn’t “happy” being married with children. He wants to leave his family because he’s attracted to other men. He wants to become a sodomite. He thinks this will make him happy. I wrote about a man many years ago who was attracted to other men but married a woman and had children with her. He wanted a family, so he put away his own sexual desires to have one. I found out…

The Masculinity of Christ in the Face of Effeminate Christianity

The Masculinity of Christ in the Face of Effeminate Christianity

Here are snippets from an article by Dale Partridge. I encourage you to read the entire article. It is sorely needed today. Instead of supporting a lukewarm church, find a solid, biblical church to attend faithfully and support. As for the pastoral dress, the suit has gone to the garbage and has been replaced with skinny jeans, a necklace, and a swoop-cut shirt that looks like a repurposed woman’s blouse. But it doesn’t stop there, we have pastors using phrases…

Does Men’s Aggressive Nature Make Them Unworthy of Patriarchy?

Does Men’s Aggressive Nature Make Them Unworthy of Patriarchy?

“Dear Lori, I have found your blog in recent weeks and have spent a great deal of time going through it. I think your doctrine is sound but sometimes I just can’t fathom how to live this way. I am a man, turned 21 and in flight school, and men are very wicked. “Do you know how many men in the world beat their wives mercilessly? Men rape and steal and kill. Our nature is aggressive, and it causes us…

Look at the Big Picture, Women

Look at the Big Picture, Women

Women tend to look at what worked for them rather than examining the big picture. This is why I am not a fan of the 19th amendment. I will give you a few examples. College. Whenever I speak against college, undoubtedly there will be women who will tell me they met their husbands at college and have a back-up plan in case something happened to their husbands. This is great BUT look at the big picture! College has wreaked havoc…

The Darkness of Sin Creeping Over the Earth

The Darkness of Sin Creeping Over the Earth

Written By Nancy Campbell in her Magazine Above Rubies Deception has taken hold of our culture in much greater ways. Things that were abhorrent in the secular word are now often accepted in the Christian world. The gross darkness of sin is creeping over the earth. Now is the time to shine brighter than ever, to speak the truth more boldly, to rise up and reveal the glory of God more fully. In this day when most mothers continue to…

The Curse of Emotional Needs

The Curse of Emotional Needs

Women believe their husbands should meet their emotional needs, whatever that means. Here’s what Psychology Today said about this: “The idea of ’emotional needs’ is one of the more harmful notions of pop psychology. The term came into popular discourse in the 1980s, as part of what is known as the culture of self-obsession, which has grown steadily, as scores on measures of narcissism indicate.” I am not a fan of psychology, but I agree with this completely. I tried…
