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 […]

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 […]

AiG: Pro-Gay Theology: Does the Bible Approve of Homosexuality?

| June 29, 2015

TROY, Ala. — The US Supreme Court’s decision last Thursday to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage has left Alabama probate judges with few legal options, and some big decisions to make.

| June 29, 2015

Schlafly believes the decision will create a new political movement and more legal challenges.
