The real war against women is when we try to make them something that God didn't intend and the same can be said for men. We now have men trying to be half husbands and half wives and we have women trying to be half wives and half husbands. It hasn't worked and will never work.
Amen. As I've heard it said, women fail miserably at being men, and men do poorly at being women. It causes much confusion in marriage, parenting, and life in general. Some things in the Bible are hard to be understood, but this isn't one of them. I've found avoiding much media and pop culture and abiding in the Word keeps me from being sucked into the world's wicked "gender blender."
Sad... Another good program, but hearing the quotes from the young people makes me want to cry. It reminds me of Jesus' words about losing one's life when one lives for self but gaining it by serving Him and others. The quote from the 21-year-old woman was especially bleak. Why does she think a wedding HAS to be expensive? And to think she'd rather travel to Europe than be "inconvenienced" with a husband and children, because her life is all about her happiness?! Not minding if she's single forever as long as she's happy...how foolish! I pray the Lord opens her eyes and delivers her from her selfishness. She knows not what she says.
Frank wrote: Well, let's see if we hear any media outlet or any presidential candidate say she shouldn't be president because she is a woman and God has not called women to be leaders in society and that women leaders is a sign of judgment as noted in Isaiah 3:12. And of course the multiple verses on what Christian women are supposed to do; be helpmates to their husbands, keepers at home, mothers to their children and charitable work when the opportunity presents itself.
You're going to have a long wait on your hands to hear this from a media outlet or any of the other candidates, my friend. Even so, let God be true, and every man a liar.
Excellent comments/commentary from Frank and s c below.
Funny how there are no absolutes and everything is relative...until someone perceives he or she has been wronged. But then again, how can one be wronged if right and wrong doesn't even exist? Boggles the mind...
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God (see Psalms 14:1 and 53:1). Denying His being and existence truly means anything goes.
I can't really say why, but the Lord has strongly placed you in my heart. I've read some of your previous posts concerning your health issues, and I'm really glad to see you posting again here at SA. I thank God that He has sustained you.
Marcus wrote: I agree with the emphatic no, Christians should not attend gay "weddings". However, I think Christians should not be hypocritical and still attend heterosexual weddings of those who profess to be Christians and yet are inappropriately getting married after divorcing their last spouse. Jesus said that makes you and your spouse commit adultery. We need to not give our assent or the church's blessing to straight "Christian" weddings that are contrary to the teachings of Christ.
Amen. I have been convicted by the Lord and have thus repented from attending such "remarriage" ceremonies. I've not been to a wedding for several years now. If I'm unfamiliar with the marital history of the bridegroom and/or the bride, I will not go. I don't want to take the chance of attending an event that legalizes adultery; as with sodomite "marriage," this is also unbiblical.

Greetings, John UK, from across the pond.
Thank you for the kind words, including the admonition not to get puffed up. I always need such reminders.
Your comment @ 12:22 p.m. on 2-12-15 gets no argument from me. I agree with you completely. You've simply stated the Biblical truth about women, which many find hard to accept in this wicked feminist age.
Well said, brother; well said. I'm blessed by your comments. God bless you.
"...that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God" (Luke 16:15).
I've gotten to the point where, if the world is running after something and hyping it up, I'm immediately suspect. It seems spectacles such as the Super Bowl are quite worldly in nature (immodest dress, idolatry, pop music, etc.). Thus, I've opted to come out from among it and be separate.

Hollywood's Mayer is one of the crew. Gay pride parades, W. Hollywood sidewalk stars that cater to their most respected supporters, etc. Well, I guess these sorts of situations are in many areas of the country, but some are much more in your face than others. The times we are witness to is really something.
Yes, it's hardly surprising that such a requirement would occur in West Hollywood. After all, they are known for championing and propagating this type of wickedness. Best to come out from among them and be ye separate.
Great Sermon! These kind of pull no punches, sacred cow smashing, sobering sermons causing conviction and demanding repentance are much needed in the apostate, worldly churches of America today. May the Lord continue to strengthen you to expose and demolish idols. God bless you and your ministry.
