Reblog Friday: Countering Culture

I know it is Reblog Friday, but I have been bad this week and haven’t had much time to visit other sites.  So, I will do a modified “reblog” and share an excerpt out of David Platt’s Counter Culture that has been on my mind for a few weeks now as the ISIS issues intensify, the whole Iran debacle takes us further from God’s protection … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Countering Culture

Submission…A Dirty Word in Today’s Culture

Last week we were talking about God’s design for marriage.  I stated that God’s design for marriage is for men and women (both made in the image of God) to leave their parents and be joined together in order to multiply.   Once married, men are to love their wives as Christ loves the church and be the head of their households; women are to love … Continue reading Submission…A Dirty Word in Today’s Culture

Is this really what God had in mind … Continue reading What Does Your Marriage say about Christ?

Countering Culture by Helping the Poor, Widows, and Orphans?

Matthew 25: 31-36 (NKJ):  “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, … Continue reading Countering Culture by Helping the Poor, Widows, and Orphans?
