Desiring God: Romantic Love is a Wonderful gift and a Terrible God

| February 5, 2016

  The lie says: If you find romantic love, then your life will be safe and fulfilling. So much so that marriage becomes a type of salvation, and romantic love takes on almost redemptive expectations. So what would you say to Christians, either singles or newlyweds, who are in danger of losing awe in God […]

What is the Difference Between Being Humble and Being a Doormat?

| December 17, 2015

Paul tells us in Philippians 2:3-4 that we should count others more significant than ourselves.

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.

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”.

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?

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.
