Q: What Does Dating Have to Do With Jesus? A: Everything. Absolutely everything. Dating is an extremely spiritual thing, and we don’t get that. Fasten your seatbelt and we’ll fly through a short course in truth. Adam was the first Adam. Jesus was the second Adam. Don’t have to get that, just remember it for … Continue reading About Dating, part 4
Okay, so why is the goal of marital faithfulness so universal? Or: Why did God build this program into all people? It is because His Son is a Bridegroom, waiting for a pure bride. A good marriage pictures nearly everything that happens in the heavenlies. Some do not think of marriage as God’s idea. They … Continue reading About Dating, part 2
My man is so good at things I'm not good at. He can handle stress like an iron man, while I panic and flop around like a beached fish. He knows what to do when political things invade our lives, and I just want to shout. He has a GPS inside his brain; but I … Continue reading Adam or Eve: Who’s Better in a Crisis?
It happens. Twice in history it has happened. Sort of. I mean, twice in history, a man looked around, could find no suitable partner for life, and his side was opened, and gave rise to the existence of another “one” who was like him, suitable for him. Okay, we know the Bible, in the book … Continue reading When a Man Gives Birth
Dearest Angela, I am so glad my last letter blessed you! I can tell you have put a lot of thought into it. Please do not be embarrassed to ask questions. So. What if he’s wrong? Good question! Can you believe I’m glad you asked? Trouble is, there are so many answers, I may get … Continue reading Sent On Saturday – Letter #2
How fast does sin spread? Fast. They've still got apple skin bits stuck in their teeth, juice on their chins, and they are in denial about blame. The woman made me do it. The devil made me do it. My past made me do it, my parents made me do it, my teacher made me … Continue reading Passing the Buck
Okay, so Adam was there and he was watching. And he knew; he’d heard the voice of God, really and truly, telling him exactly what was the score with that one tree in the middle of the garden. He listened while the enemy fiddled around with Eve’s brain. He watched her tremblingly take the fruit … Continue reading He DID Eat. Part 2
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Genesis 3:6 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. … Continue reading He DID Eat. Part 1
I've been interested in word origins since I was very little. And I used to think the word "woman" meant, or was short for, "whoa, man!" (Seemed appropriate for public restroom doors.) Even as a child, I could see the "man" in the word. If we go back to the original concepts behind the idea, … Continue reading Whoa, Man!
It was not good that man should be alone. God said it. Adam had God for conversation (a heretical concept to some of us) and he had all the animals, which were tame at the time, for entertainment.
