“How do I look?” Part 7 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 3, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

Women who are loving TOWARD men are always lovable BY men, no matter what those women look like over the course of the day to day fray.

“How do I look?” Part 6 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 2, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

The level of personal offense someone takes when presented with a truth claim does nothing whatsoever to invalidate the truth claim.

“How do I look?” Part 5 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 1, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

The conflated argument Evans puts forward stands on the proposition that it “should make no difference” whether a wife maintains stewardship over her subjective appearance — that such stewardship or lack thereof ought to have absolutely no impact on her husband’s daily battle with sexual temptation.

“How do I look?” Part 4 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Dec 31, 2011 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

While Pastor Challies starts his article by pointing out the red herring Evans cooked up — that if wives slouch off on their appearance, husbands will cheat on them — that isn’t what he chooses to focus on in the main thrust. Challies makes the case that while YES appearance counts in marriage, he dispels the notion that becoming a slob absolves your spouse of any sin. Further, he draws the distinction between naturally growing old and living life with what he calls inward and outward appearance.

“How do I look?” Part 3 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Dec 30, 2011 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

When a wife rejects or belittles her husband’s sexual needs, she very obviously HARMS his ability to avoid improper sexual impulses. But that isn’t entirely what either of these cited truth claims state. The truth claim in each of the above cases expands on that accepted fact by stating that when a wife ignores (a) her appearance and (b) her husband’s sexual needs, she is NOT HELPING him to avoid sexual temptation.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not attempting an argument from personal ignorance, nor am I accusing Evans of outright lying. After all, what would be her possible agenda?

Does appearance matter in marriage? Is refusing to take stewardship over one’s personal appearance — “appearance” as defined by whatever subjective standards individual married couples recognize — considered sinful?

Forgiveness

Posted by Hallee on Jun 14, 2011 in Christian Faith, holiness, inspiration, Prayer

It occurred to her at that second that she hadn’t forgiven him or them. She resented their presence in her life, their part in her husband’s destruction, their very existence. And to think that she would have to spend eternity with them, that they would in their dirty sinful life be deserving of the same rewards as she was after she lived such a righteous and godly life made her angry.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 25 – His Repentance

Posted by Hallee on Jun 11, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Marriage, Praying Wife

I used to think the term “repentance” was the entire package of what a Christian was to do. Likely because of pop culture political cartoons or caricatures with some sign or caption in them about “repent and be saved!” So, in my mind, repentance meant confession of sins and turning away from sins while accepting Jesus Christ into your life and heart all at the same time.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 17 – His Relationships

My husband is a very social person. He can chat with strangers over any subject matter for hours and never bat an eye. He can work a room at a party or banquet and enjoy meeting new people, catching up with old acquaintances, and find something in common with just about anyone. But he has very few very close friends.
