Does Duty Sex Become Dull?

Does Duty Sex Become Dull?

Apparently, explaining to women that they are not to deprive their husbands since God is the One who commands this, creates a scenario where sex becomes a “duty” and they no longer enjoy sex. Sex becomes dull. Can I tell you what this attitude boils down to? Rebellion, plain and simple. God commands many things of us, many, and they are ALL for our good! When supposed “sex teachers” are teaching women that duty sex is wrong, they are teaching…

A Message For Wives Who are Depriving Their Husbands

A Message For Wives Who are Depriving Their Husbands

If you haven’t noticed, I like to be blunt in my teaching; teaching that is straightforward. I like teachers who are blunt in their teaching. I don’t need to be coddled, and I certainly don’t want my ears tickled (2 Timothy 4:3). This kind of teaching never helped me. It was Debi Pearl’s blunt teaching that finally helped me. She told me exactly where I was at fault in my marriage. It’s probably why I love the Apostle Paul’s teaching….

The Devil Hates Your Marriage

The Devil Hates Your Marriage

Written By John Michael Clark The devil hates your marriage. He uses lies and temptations and seeks to divide the two who have become one. This is why it’s so painful when a husband and wife are living under the influence of his lies. And one area in particular he attacks in marriage is sex. The devil wants everybody having sex except for a husband and a wife. And this gift that was made exclusively FOR marriage is celebrated everywhere…

Esteem Him Higher Than Yourself

Esteem Him Higher Than Yourself

Many women do not like it when I teach them to not deprive their husbands sexually, but I will continue to do so since it’s biblical. “Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency” (1 Corinthians 7:5). Defraud means to “to withhold wrongfully from another what is due to him.” Incontinency means “lack…

What does “Head of the Wife” Mean?

What does “Head of the Wife” Mean?

Written By John Michael Clark Normal Christian Husband: What does the Bible mean when it says a husband is the “head of his wife?” Milquetoast Pastor: Well it doesn’t mean you’re some kind of tyrant!! Normal Christian Husband: Riiight… I didn’t assume that it did… So what DOES it mean? Milquetoast Pastor: Well it doesn’t mean your wife is some kind of doormat!! right? Normal Christian Husband: Riight… I didn’t think that either… but what DOES it actually mean? Milquetoast…

The Taming of The Shrew

The Taming of The Shrew

This post is an excerpt from the book titled Teachers’ Secrets and Motherhood Savvy by Renee Ellison. I highly recommend this book! I pray that this post will bless and challenge you, wives. Nothing good comes from being quarrelsome and needing to be right with your husband. (A shrew is an ill-tempered, scolding woman.) We can see yet a third powerful picture of discipline in Shakespeare’s play, The Taming of the Shrew. (Perhaps you can find the old black and…

Continuation of a Dysfunctional Life

Continuation of a Dysfunctional Life

This was shared on my Facebook page last week: The following is a comment about Joel’s tweet written by James D Ferrand: It amazes me, that our generations, mainly 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s babies, most of us grew up in broken homes, and many of us dealt with the social and psychological consequences of such, sowing a lack of growth and maturity because of this. In any case, we were not shown the proper way to have family, with…

Forty Years of Marriage

Forty Years of Marriage

Forty years ago today, Ken and I were married in a little Baptist church in Newhall right next to Master’s College. Yes, I was nervous about marrying him. Marriage is a lifetime commitment, and we both knew this. I had never had a close relationship with any man growing up. I wasn’t very close to my dad, uncles, or any other man in my life. I believe this makes it more difficult to know how to navigate through a marriage…

Why Don’t Christians Support Young Marriage?

Why Don’t Christians Support Young Marriage?

“Why does the evangelical church support abstinence pledges and purity rings but not young marriage? Why have we vilified ‘young marriage’ but push a secular four-year college on a 17-year old with such tenacity? Does it have something to do with our lackluster attitude towards premarital sex and our idolatry of formal education and lucrative careers? I can name at least twenty couples in our church of 400 people who were married in their late teens/early twenties and are still…

Wanting a Partner and Not a Servant

Wanting a Partner and Not a Servant

A meme has been going around social media sites lately that states this: “Parents, I can’t stress this enough…Teach your daughter economic independence so in the future she can have a partner, not a master. Teach your son to do housework so in the future, he can have a partner, not a servant.” This post is a slam against biblical roles laid out in the Bible. It’s a way to mock them. Do you know that there’s nowhere in the…
