Frank wrote: Normally whoever earns the money, runs the families. One reason why women should stay home.
Right. Here are some others:
"He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD" (Psalm 113:9).
"I will that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully" (I Timothy 5:14).
"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed" (Titus 2:4-5).
Just yesterday, in my Bible reading, the Lord lead me to Genesis 34, Proverbs 7:5-27, and I Timothy 5:11-13 to show me the trouble that women get into when they don't stay home. Would to God that women could see that the Lord's will is for our protection, the betterment of society in general, and His own glory.
Frank wrote: I agree! I believe it occurs when we define scripture by our cultures instead of the other way around. So, if I say that a woman should stay home and be a mother when possible; many will say that won't work in our culture. Now I will admit that might be true in many instances, but to yield to that is pragmatism. Men not being the providers, priests of the home, and protectors, etc. I would rather live in a mobile home park if it meant my wife could stay home in obedience to my Lord and Savior.
Amen, and as you so often say: Come quickly, Lord Jesus, come quickly.
John for JESUS wrote: The problem with this study is, it has a narrow view of adultery. How many churches are okay with a pastor being on their second or more marriage? The Bible says to divorce your wife and marry a new one is adultery also.
Yes, and thank you for bringing this matter up, as it's often overlooked. I cannot, in good Christian conscience, subject myself to the leadership of a pastor who is divorced and "remarried." I left a church over this matter several years ago. It was as if the pastor's adultery sanctioned those in the congregation to do the same. Several other pastors and deacons within this church, as well as many of the members, were divorced from their Biblically lawful spouses and legally (according to man) married to someone else.
The church's light regarding of fornication and adultery has undoubtedly paved the way for its growing acceptance of sodomy. I cannot be convinced otherwise.
Great Sermon! I know this sermon's main subject isn't feminism, but I thank God that you preach strongly against that wicked rebellion and defend God's creation and His order from the Bible. The Lord's blessings to you.
Yes, Brother Frank, I believe I see the pattern also.
Just from what I've seen, most women who are unmarried deeply yearn to be, and also to bear children. It's a grievous thing to them if they cannot. But feminism teaches women to despise the very role that God gave them, and the Bible is very clear about the deception and silliness to which women are prone (I Timothy 2:14; II Timothy 3:6). Feminist pride prevents many women from seeing and/or admitting the Bible's truth. And men are much less inclined to relate to women as the weaker vessel, since many of them, too, have believed feminism's lie that males and females are the same. Many men want women to earn their own living and provide for themselves so they don't have to do it.

I use the KJV because I believe its the best English translation, and because historically, it bears the fruit of spiritual growth, rather than apostacy like the new versions.
Great comment and sums it up perfectly for me as well.

And if Ted were in his Bible as much as he claims to be he would know that.
Echoes to the comments about sports being a wasteful distraction and an addiction. Perhaps this will be the last straw that causes some to put away childish things and begin to redeem the time. May it be so, Lord Jesus.
It does seem that preaching against fornication is relatively rare. People act as though it is just inevitable. Solid, hard, Scriptural preaching will force its listeners to make a decision: either repent or stop listening to the preaching.
I recall once visiting a church which a couple who were "shacking up" were allowed to join and be members in good standing. I never went back to that church.

I have listened to this sermon several times, owing to its boldness and rarity in telling seldom-told truths. It is solid, Biblical, and definitely worth a listen. Thank you for bringing it to attention.

Or, at least, this is as it should be. There are many professing "Christians" who seem to love the world, rather than loving not the world, as I John 2:15 commands us. But then, I'm sure you know this.
