The Daily Signal: How the Left has Sabotaged Marriage and Family

| November 19, 2015

On June 26, 2015, four of the Supreme Court’s liberals joined Justice Anthony Kennedy in discovering a new right to same-sex marriage in the U.S. Constitution, one thereby imposed upon all 50 states. In response, of course, liberals were jubilant. Their leader, the one who promised to fundamentally transform America, responded by literally illuminating the […]

Challies: Saved Through Childbearing

| November 16, 2015

In a recent sermon I found that I had to touch upon one what I consider of the trickiest passages in the Bible: 1 Timothy 2:15. Here is what this verse says: “Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.” Taken on its own, this is […]

Thomas: Please Don’t Marry Him

| October 27, 2015

A dysfunctional dating relationship sealed by marriage doesn’t make any problems go away; it simply cements you in a dysfunctional marriage. Marriage won’t improve your man. Marriage won’t change your man. (The same is true of a woman, of course.) Marriage simply weds you to your partner’s problems. When you raise a significant issue in […]

Amy Loux: An Incompatible Marriage

| October 26, 2015

When it comes to romantic relationships our society is obsessed with finding the “perfect match” or “soul mate”. Personality tests, attraction, chemistry…these are the things we talk about when we think of compatibility. It’s all a little nebulous, but apparently “when you know, you know”…that spark or indescribable connection is what separates the others from “the […]

AiG: Is Polygamy Next?

| October 2, 2015

For years I’ve been saying that once you open the door to redefine marriage, where do you stop? Well, that’s already starting to happen since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to legalize gay “marriage” in June. After all, if “love wins,” as gay “marriage” activists say, then by this line of […]

What the husband of a chronically ill wife wants her to know

| September 14, 2015

My dear wife recently sent me a list of three things that a chronically ill person wants her loved ones to know.  You can access that article here. It is very well done, and puts to words all that you are feeling. My darling, I know.  I’ve heard you.  I understand. I also want you […]

Holmes: How to Handle Your Spouse’s Sexual Past

| September 14, 2015

Long before I was even considering marriage, a Titus 2 woman shared with me the pain of confessing her sexual history to her future husband. “It was hard,” she told me. “We both cried. We both repented. It made us a stronger couple.” I remember being grateful for her openness with me, but also feeling […]

Your Sacred Calling: A Christian Response to the Ashley Madison Scandal

| September 2, 2015

I haven’t written on my blog in a long time. To be frank, I just got tired of dealing with the antagonists. But I felt compelled to write today. Marriage is so precious. It’s not supposed to be something you’re stuck in; it’s something you’re supposed to be thankful for—something you get to enjoy! So there were […]

Challies: My Wife’s Plea to Christian Men

| September 2, 2015

[Editor’s note: First, with regards to “False Messages,” if you take the time to read “False Messages,” and I hope you do, I think you’ll find it rewarding as well as great insight into this article by Aileen Challies. I do want to make a couple notes however. One is on the point of men […]

Mohler: Ashley Madison and the Death of Monogamy

| August 27, 2015

[I]n the larger secular culture, the big question is whether adultery really matters or not. Marriage and monogamy have been subverted from an array of cultural forces. Moral revolutionaries declared war on monogamy, declaring it to be unrealistic, patriarchal, repressive, and antiquated. Popular culture and entertainment glorified virtually any experiment in sexual gratification and often […]

Church Militant: I Was the Other Man: An Insider’s Look at Why Gay Marriage Will Never Work

| July 23, 2015

[T]he current obsession with gay marriage is not a step towards a version of heterosexual monogamy transplanted into the heads of gay men, but a withdrawal towards safety and an unconscious awareness that so far nothing (decriminalization, sexual liberation and acceptance) had worked. In the end, it’s all make-believe — a last-ditch effort to save […]

50% Divorce Rate in Church is Misleading Propoganda

| July 20, 2015

This is a game-changer. Talk about “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce; 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers. These claims, long understood to be research-based facts, […]

Defining Marriage

| July 6, 2015

Some Christians, recognizing the change that occurs because of the redefinition of marriage, argue that we need a two-track system: marriage as defined by the state and marriage as defined by the church. The problem with this view is that it also misunderstands the nature of marriage. Neither the state nor the church has the […]

Why are so many straight people pro gay?

| July 4, 2015

Why are so many straight people pro gay? Because the normalization of homosexuality is the premiere achievement of heterosexual ideology. “Gay” and “straight” are not taxonomies but ideologies. They are not orientations but disorientations: whether bi-, homo-, or hetero-, hyphenated sexuality makes us lose our sense of direction toward the truly sexual, and the victims […]
