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?

Pro-life Sidewalk Counselor Helps Save Baby’s Life, Now 15 Years Old

By Kirk Barker, Founder Cameron’s Chance Pro-life Advocacy

I was a non-believer most of my life. I had turned my back on God. I denied God. Then one day God showed me I was wrong. Fifteen years ago my wife was pregnant with our son. She became very sick and lost 42 pounds in one month. My wife was hospitalized most of this time. Eventually our doctor told us, “There is nothing more that I can do. If you don’t terminate the pregnancy, you will die.” Unfortunately, we took his advice. We got the procedure set up and went to the abortion center the day of the procedure.

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?

Martin & Katie Luther’s Scandalous Marriage

October 31, 2017 | Author:

“As soon as this former monk married a former nun, people took interest,” says Gabriele Jancke, a historian at Freie University in Berlin. “The moment someone left the cloister, they destroyed themselves, from the Catholic point of view. It was as bad as being divorced.”

As Luther’s intellectual fame grew, some of his allies, uncomfortable with his wife’s outsize presence, referred to her as “Doctorissa” in their letters – intended as a mean-spirited dig at both Katharina and her husband. Others tried to needle Luther by suggesting that some of his ideas were actually Katharina’s.

“Women at the time were supposed to be seen and not heard,” says Martin Treu, a historian at the Luther Society in Wittenberg and author of a von Bora biography. “Von Bora was seen as self-confident, strong-willed, and independent, which were all negative attributes for women at the time.”

The Luthers’ 21-year marriage was an arrangement unusual for their era. While Luther spent his time teaching, preaching, and writing, Katharina worked tirelessly to keep the family business running. After marrying Luther, Katharina turned a three-story former monastery building into the 16th-century equivalent of a hotel, dormitory, and conference center.

As the Reformation movement spread across Europe, the house that Katharina ran became its epicenter. After dinner, Luther, Katharina, and select guests discussed theology and politics in Latin, hammering out the intellectual framework of the Reformation. Her presence at Luther’s “table talks” was unusual. Women were usually excluded from such discussions, and contemporaries remarked on her presence disapprovingly.

Marie Dentiere—The Woman on the Reformation Wall

Guest Contributor, Annie Leavitt.

There is one woman’s name on the famous Reformation Wall in Geneva. She is Marie Dentiere, and she has become a somewhat controversial figure in the story of the reformation. Some have labeled her an early feminist and suggest she was a nuisance to Calvin. Others see a bold and passionate woman who used the means available to her to spread the gospel, and who ended up writing the preface to one of Calvin’s books as a result.

Marie was a French noblewoman who joined an Augustinian convent in her mid-twenties. In the convent she studied some of Luther’s writings, and as a result, left the convent within three years of her arrival. Soon after, Marie met and married another monastical escapee, Simon Robert, who was active in the reformation movement. Together they moved on a pastoral assignment to Valais, where William Farel was a missionary at the time. This was the first time a married couple, not just a solo pastor, had accepted a pastoral assignment for the French reformed church, and people began to take notice of Marie’s active involvement in many aspects of the ministry. She learned Hebrew and Latin, and helped her husband translate a Bible. She also accompanied her husband on many of his evangelistic trips. Eventually, her husband, Simon, died. She married her husband’s good friend, Antoine Froment, and together they moved to Geneva. (more…)

“Beloved, do not IMITATE evil but IMITATE good.” — 3 John 1:11a

Guest contributor, Kristine Harrhof

When my kids put on their cow costume from our dress-up box,
what’s the first thing they do?

They get down on all fours and “moooo” like a cow.

When they put on their astronaut costume,
what’s the first move they make?

They climb up high on the couch, land on the “moon,” and tell all family members that they now need to be addressed as “Mr. Astronaut” for the rest of the day.

Likewise, when our kids/teens dress up —
for Halloween or Fall Festivals or Trunk or Treats or a costume birthday party in July —
like devils, witches, demons, prostitutes, zombies, ghosts, Playboy bunnies, demon-possessed people, or axe-murderers,… (more…)

Are You Wasting Your Life at Home?

October 26, 2017 | Author:

So when you hear the voices echoing in your mind, voices saying that you are wasting your life, say this: “Just because I am being poured out does not mean I’m being wasted.” But make sure that what is being poured out of you is costly perfume. When we do our work with faithfulness and humility, for the purpose of eternity and not the purpose of a clean house and presentable children, then it is a beautiful fragrance that spreads, even to those shaking their heads.
