Warhorn Media – When Bitterness Accompanies Infertility

January 18, 2018 | Author:

I can’t tell you how often I am comforted by the stories of women in the bible who also struggled with infertility. I’m comforted by them because when I look at Hannah who was mistaken as a drunkard in her pleading to God for a child, I feel less crazy for feeling so sad. I’m comforted by Sarah who spent her young married life all the way to old age longing for a child. When I see her laugh at hearing she would finally have a son, I see the great mothers of faith also struggled against bitterness. But I’m strengthened by this because Sarah grew in faith and walked in repentance.

Sarah’s longing for a child was good. Her bitterness in not having one in her timing was not. It’s the seeds of bitterness, anger, discontentment I have to fight against. But Sarah was not only considered a mother to Isaac, she was even more significantly a mother of many nations.

Motherhood comes in many forms. Every woman created by God should desire children. Should desire to be a mother. Motherhood is built into the very fibers of our beings as women.

“Now the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.” (Genesis 3:20)

I find myself asking, If God does not give me physical children, then how else might I be a mother?

Murder Made Easy for the Microwave Generation

January 2, 2018 | Author:

The Daily Wire Reports: Unlike pro-life and religious organizations, the feminist movement has rejected the idea of helping women with unplanned pregnancies to overcome the obstacles in their paths and ensure a healthy life for them and their children. Instead, they’re actively pushing to normalize the murder of unborn babies and promoting the most efficient ways to do it.

A new abortion device called SofTouch, which was featured in feminist magazine Glamour on Sunday, can kill an unborn baby up to 12-weeks gestation “in just three minutes.” Less developed babies can apparently be killed in a mere 60-seconds. (more…)

American Vision: The Great Conservative Hypocrisy

December 28, 2017 | Author:

Conservative Christians oppose liberals in general. We pretend we have the moral high ground. We oppose abortion, the homosexual lobby, etc. Yet Christians accept a host of socialist wealth-redistribution schemes. The most glaring example of this is education. Christians, almost to the person, accept and fight for the institution of public education funded by other people’s wealth. Christians will employ every intellectual artifice imaginable in order to justify public education. And yet, what is government education based on except a wealth-redistribution scheme? Likewise, what is Social Security except a gargantuan behemoth of a wealth-redistribution scheme? What is the authorization of billions to prosecute unnecessary wars except a wealth redistribution scheme? Christians will fight to the end for these things as morally right, and yet the funding for these things is based on institutionalized theft and redistribution. In these things we accept, and through our practices and choices approve, the principle that money can be taken from someone else by force in order to pay for a cause we believe is good.

A Case for Marrying Later

December 27, 2017 | Author:

Some of the most faithful Christians I know today are unmarried. They are using their gifts to show a different side of what faithfulness might look like when one doesn’t have children, a spouse, a mortgage, or some other constraints. They are making a case for late marriages not simply because of the kind of marriage they might have by delaying it (hopefully more mature, grounded, wise, and sanctified than if they’d come into marriage at 20 or 22), but by being extraordinarily faithful in their singleness.

To all my readers who are unmarried, thank you for being faithful and I pray you grow only more so. The Church needs to see your example of faithfulness. The Church needs to learn marriage isn’t the most sanctifying agent, but age, maturity, and submission to God are, and no one is exempt from those three things. The Church needs your hands, your minds, your insights, your passion, your longing, your gifts, not because we are needy and greedy, but because for too long we have not valued what you bring to the Christian life.

You stand in the company of Martin Luther, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis, Amy Carmichael, Joni Eareckson Tada, Mother Theresa, William Wilberforce, Florence Young, Gladys Aylward, Lottie Moon, Corrie Ten Boom, my sweet friend Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, the Apostle Paul, and Jesus—men and women who married late or never married at all, and of whom the world is not worthy in many ways.

A daughter with vision can impact generations

December 4, 2017 | Author:

[O]ur daughter was raised to delight in her role as woman, and, Lord willing, as a future wife and mother.  She has been taught that it is the highest calling of a woman and why would she want to settle for less.  This position has been a shock to a number of people she has told, but she continues to proclaim it boldly. Some people see her as being held back by her parents, oppressed, or will have a lack of intelligence just reducing herself to such a role.  She does not see it this way. She knows God word and seeks to do His will.

Mercatornet: Why French Women Are Quitting The Pill

November 30, 2017 | Author:

Increasingly women in France (my homeland) are dropping the contraceptive pill and avoiding hormonal contraceptives in general. In a HuffPost article, independent journalist and French public radio host Sabrina Debusquat explains  that she conducted a survey of 3,616 French women who had taken the pill and found out why 91 percent had stopped at least one time.

After she published the results, the media and medical professionals responded by calling women’s reluctance a “defiance” toward the pill, suggesting that women are misled, mistaken, and guided by fear rather than reason. “When we ask them, we realize that the reality is very different,” writes Ms. Debusquat.

Yenor: Transgender Activists working to Undermine Parental Rights

November 20, 2017 | Author:

Radical feminists aspire to revolutionize society in three ways.

First, they seek to eliminate the different ways boys and girls are socialized, so that they will come to have very similar characters and temperaments.

Second, they seek to cultivate financial and emotional independence of women and children from the family.

Third, they hope to erase sexual taboos, embracing new ways for individuals to achieve sexual satisfaction outside of monogamous, procreative marriage.

Crosspolitic: Christians have Lost Their Vision for Education

November 10, 2017 | Author:

I grew up in the state of Texas and all my friends send their kids to public school and they think “hey it’s no big deal because I know the Christian principle down the road. I know the math teacher, he’s a Christian, we do ‘see you at the pole’ once a year, all these good things.” I just want to grab them by the ear and take them up to the state of Washington, and show them the transgender bathrooms that are developing. Every new government building has to have a transgender bathroom.

The problem is that Christians have for too long [thought] that they could basically coast. As long as there are Christians in there, and they don’t force evolution down our throats. “In our state there are a lot of Christians in the schools so they don’t force the transgender issue down the kids throats”

But that’s not the issue. We need to be training up soldiers. We want fighters. We want our sons and daughters to be arrows. That’s what God says they are, they are arrows in the hand of a mighty man. We want them to rise up and stand with us in the gates and contend with our enemies. So we’re training them to fight.

As soon as you try to have them fight they’re going to get kicked out. You’re not allowed to fight. They need to be taught to fight. You can’t send your kindergartener, your third grader to the public school and expect them to fight.

A lot of our Christian schools are not a whole lot better. At least there we have a chance but so many of our Christian schools just like government schools with bible classes. Homeschools can be the same way. You need to teach them to fight. They need to know who their enemies are and take them.

Piper: Do Men Owe Women a Special Kind of Care?

Engagement Session at Harvard kristaguenin Compfight CC

Egalitarianism tends to obscure the deeper differences between manhood and womanhood. This has not served us well in the last fifty years. It has instead confused millions and muted a crucial summons for a distinctly masculine care.

What average man or woman today could answer a little boy’s question: Daddy, what does it mean to grow up and be a man and not a woman? Or a little girl’s question: Mommy, what does it mean to grow up and be a woman and not a man?

Who could answer these questions without diminishing manhood and womanhood into anatomical structures and biological functions? Who could articulate the profound meanings of manhood and womanhood woven differently into a common personhood created differently and equally in the image of God?

When Desires for Love and Respect Destroy Your Marriage

November 2, 2017 | Author:

By Mark Grant

There is a common belief within the Christian community that we have God-given desires like love and respect that are good but can morph into evil desires from our selfish hearts. Is this accurate? Should the statement be unchallenged?
