No pet sins; everything in its due season

 

Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts

– Matthew 9:4

 

Christian,

Refrain from entertaining overly erotic thoughts of Couples Nursing while single. For all you know, you just may never taste marriage. All your time and effort spent fantasizing will be in vain. Let’s practice purity and being content whatever our station in life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christ alone

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

– Acts 4:12


Dear readers, trust me I know it gets hard, even from recent idolatry, but I’ve learned that Christ transcends my physical needs. We all suffer from spiritually amnesia, so we need constant reminders that Jesus Christ is literally greater than whatever else we desire. I’ve witnessed multiple miracles that prove this.

Do not worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink [this can be extended to include milk]; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life [e]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

If Couples Nursing causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away

Matthew 5:28-30 New International Version (NIV)

28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

A theology of the sexes: Woman = wisdom

One of the most underestimated qualities of women is their ability to influence through wise counsel. It’s no coincidence that wisdom in the book of Proverbs is personified as a woman and the young man’s quest for a wife is likened to his quest for wisdom.

The wise counsel of women is a distinctive way women help the church fulfills its mission.

Men go to war because they are the more dispensable sex called to sacrifice their lives for the protection of the community.

 

 

A theology of the sexes: men and women are inextricably united

For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

– 1 Corinthians 11:8-12
