WHAT TO ADVISE A PORN USER'S WIFE
Posted on January 22, 2009
My reader, I'd like your response to this Christian wife's dilemma. She's an acquaintance of my wife's. She tells my wife she has caught her husband (whom I personally don't know) on a porn site. The husband refuses to talk about it, says it's nothing. But she feels betrayed and violated. What should she do regarding her husband? He is, by the way, active in their chu...

SATAN BARKS ORDERS FROM NEARBY FIELD
Posted on January 14, 2009
In my life, there is no doubt that the devil's power has been broken (Romans 6:6-7), but his presence is still a reality. His power is broken, but is still present. (Read my 1/15/09 blog The Devil Trying to Kick my Butt) Even after Jesus' own victory over Satan's temptation in the desert, the Bible records that the devil "left Jesus until another opportunity" (Lu...

THE REALITY OF A REAL DEVIL
Posted on January 8, 2009
Most people believe the devil is really just symbolic of evil, not a real fallen angel who's the sum of all that heinous and hellish. They think of him as an imaginary, little freakish-looking guy with a fork. If we believe the Bible is God's sure and true Word, then we have to believe in the reality of a true Satan whose fury is relentless to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). ...

Christmas Makes Me Unafraid
Posted on December 18, 2008
I write this Christmas piece the day before my end-of-the-year, follow-up PET scan and brain MRI. The tests are to assess the status of my lymphoma that has been in remission for a year and a half. Christmas tells me that I can be more brave about this, and that you too, can be brave in your struggles. Christmas tells us not to be afraid because God has become one of us. His ...

A CLEANSED IMAGINATION
Posted on December 11, 2008
I received two powerful responses from my 12/4/04 blog about so many Christian men's battles against unwanted memories of experiences from either past sexual encounters or porn habits. I think you'll find them quite effective. Here's one from Randall Staley in London UK: You requested solutions for the return of unwantedimages of either porn or past sexual encounters. What I...

A BORN AGAIN TEST
Posted on November 20, 2008
How do we know if we're a child of God? Jesus phrased it born again. Paul used the term a new creation in the Holy Spirit? In other words, how can we know if we are truly saved? We can ask ourselves some questions to help us assess if we're a new creation in Christ: 1) Do I tend to want to stay clear of conversations about Christ? 2) Does my desire for success...

He guides history. World events are under his control. (Daniel 2:21 NIV, NLT, LB) The king's heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he turns it wherever he pleases.

HOW LONG DOES THE USA HAVE?
Posted on October 30, 2008
With Election Day being Tuesday, have you ever pondered this thought: How long does the USA have as a free country? Hundreds of years? Only a few more decades? (Read my 10/30/08 blog, When the World's Turbulence Strikes Fear) Around 200 years ago, about the time of the USA's beginning, a Scottish history professor, Alexander Tyler, wrote:** "A democracy is always tempor...

Sex That's Gone Flat
Posted on October 23, 2008
After years of marriage, sex can go flat - like aPepsi that's lost its fizz. It can become like a bologna sandwich - BORING. This occurs even in strong Christian marriages where, according to various studies, the success rate for satisfying sex ranks higher than in marriages that are not strongly faith based. Make-believe Hollywood touts sex as a supreme God - always full of hi...

Exactly What Is Christian Fellowship?
Posted on October 16, 2008
The way I see it,a group of more than a handful of menis not Christian fellowship.Why? In a larger group, we guys don't get real with one another. We tend to have on our game faces. We don't open up. We don't reveal our inner struggles (yeah, we all have them). So what's the point of superficial, casual conversation? How is that experiencing real life? Jesus chosetwelve t...

Yearnings Greater than Earnings
Posted on September 25, 2008
by Jeremy L. White, CPA An old saying states a surprising truth: "The quickest way to bankruptcy is an increase in pay." As 12-year old baseball fan, I still remember hearing about a player on my favorite team. He had signed a million-dollar contract. I couldn't imagine that someone was paid that much to play ball! That's small by today's standards where the avera...

WHEN FEAR STRIKES
Posted on August 28, 2008
We guys tend to try to hide our fearsby putting onour game faces--our big false fronts of being 10' tall and bullet proof. For instance, I personally am now concerned about a left fielddevelopment in my life. (Read my 8/28/08 blog In the Shadow of the Big C). So, I've made a few tight buds and family membersaware ofitso that they will pray for me. Ilove it tha...

WHITE HATS GUYS HAVE SMOOTHER TRAVELING
Posted on August 14, 2008
We sometimes tend to think the bad guys have it easier than we men trying to do the right thing.    It seems the ones who are obviously corrupt - by the things they do and say -- get away with a ton of badness and too often come out on top in business, sports, and even relationships.  (Nice guys finish last last, as they say?)  Because of t...

WHY WE MEN DISS COUNSELING
Posted on August 7, 2008
When a certain unresolved issue continues to fester in a marriage, it is like a sore that needs cleaning and ointment to get well.  Wounds in our marriages could heal more quickly, and we could be much happier if we were open to cleaning and ointment -- that is, counseling.  But we guys will hardly consider cle...
