Teaching the Younger Women in Your Life…

Admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. (Titus 2:4–5)

In Titus 2, we older women are instructed to teach the younger women the following seven things (over the next few weeks, each of the following topics will turn into live links). The job isn’t given to men; …

Are You a Recovering Razor Mouth?

The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious, but the lips of a fool shall swallow him up…(Ecclesiastes 10:12)

I wrote Smoking Keyboards and Razor Mouthed Christians after a long period of conviction and trial. My “personality” is to be bold and direct with little thought to who I may offend. For many years, my natural inclination was to “speak the truth,” defining love only …

“One Way”

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)

The following question is from my friend, Sarah Mae, who commented on the article, Legalism: Yours, Mine, and Ours, posted the other day. I thought I’d share our exchange here:

So, how do …

Smoking Keyboards and Razor-mouthed Christians


Why is it that so many Christians (many whose writings I usually appreciate) seem to think it’s cool to ignore 1 Corinthians 13:1 while “proclaiming the truth” (as if love equals weakness). Truth is paramount; however, humility and love must undergird all of our words. And the good of the hearer to the glory …

Seven Awful Things

I love this Judy Rogers song! I’m desperately hunting the school room for our copy of “Go to the Ant.” My older children LOVED these songs when they were young, and I’m realizing my younger ones are missing out! Check out Judy’s website for wonderful songs for your children that will help hide the Word and His ways in their hearts!

Living and Speaking the Truth in Love

I received the following comment on my blog recently from a self proclaimed Christian feminist and it literally brought me to tears. Some interesting thoughts ran through my head as I cont- emplated her words. I recalled a post, Rusty Trumpets, from April, where I tried to share the importance of communicating the Truth in love. Katie’s comment confirmed for me, …

Rusty Trumpets

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal…” (1 Corinthians 13:1)
Regardless of a man’s eloquent speech, or his “right-on” blog posts, if he speaks his words without love, they fall on our ears like a rusty, out-of-tune trumpet. Instead of the music acting as a …

Judging We Are Judged

by RC Sproul Jr.

No one likes to be judged, but everybody does it. Outside the church, of course, are those who embrace a relativistic ethic, wherein there is no objective right or wrong. Suggest otherwise to these good people, however, and you will know they believe you have embraced something objectively wrong. The one iron-clad moral law of our age is “Thou shalt not say there are any moral laws.” Inside the church things happen a …
