Perhaps some don’t like this blog because they know people are being convinced of the legitimacy of ANRs, like the formerly venomous ‘hater’ described here was by my blog: “Hi…I especially like the detail you went into to show ANR is Biblical. I found your blog when a man wrote me at OKCupids [sic] saying I … Continue reading Venomous ANR critic convicted by Christ-centered ANR
I just paid a totally unplanned but divinely-ordained visit to a man-centered church where I met a lady, let’s call her blond J. This young woman and I would likely fit well together, at least in the natural sense. She’s attractive, servant-hearted, traditionally feminine, team-oriented and even showed signs of interest. Perhaps too much interest. Years … Continue reading Another incredibly attractive woman, or so it seemed
I ran across your blog this evening and I couldn’t help becoming excited. I’ve long thought I must be the only Christian who desired an ANR within a marriage. Given how taboo this subject is already, it sometimes feels hopeless to ever find what I desire. Thank you for starting the blog. I don’t feel … Continue reading The kind of email I appreciate
An “atheist” from the Prairie provinces once said to me in a misotheistic tone: “you’re free to have a kinky fetish. But don’t use the Bible to justify it.” I’m sure many believers share his sentiment, sans the you’re-free-to-live-your-life-without-regard-for-that-ancient-book-called-the-bible mindset. In fact, I agree with believers on this point. It’s wrong to thumb through God’s Word in order to justify … Continue reading Am I twisting Scripture to justify my kinky fetish?
14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed … Continue reading Faith without works is dead
To show that ANRs are very gradually becoming more popular, here’s an up to date record of the number of heterosexual profiles on ANRSpace: 6,370 members. A month ago, there were 6,146 members, a 3.6% month-over-month increase, or 7.2 new members daily. Caution: of all ANR dating sites, ANRSpace comes closest to receiving an endorsement from … Continue reading Monthly ANRSpace member tally
We can try our hardest to secure an ANR in marriage and the moment we cross the finish line, bam! Our spouse could drop dead almost as fast as Ananias and Sapphira. Or we ourselves could cease to breathe. Or a breast cancer diagnosis that urgently requires a double mastectomy, an allergic milk reaction or any … Continue reading Untimely death
Greeting Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and a brother of James: To those who are the called, loved [a] by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ. 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. Jude’s Purpose in Writing 3 Dear friends, although I was eager to write you about the salvation we share, … Continue reading God’s righteous wrath against sexual sin is absolutely terrifying: the book of Jude
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. — John 3:16
God is more concerned with our holiness than our happiness. –Elder T paraphrase
I was recently reflecting on the two believers that expressed concern that I’m placing an unbiblical emphasis on something the Bible doesn’t stress. What I’m not saying with this blog is: “ANR is all over Scripture so if you’re not partaking, you’re borderline sinning”. Rather, my aim is to let believers know that with an … Continue reading Unbiblical overemphasis on ANRs
No matter how little or how much time you devote, just make sure you read daily. No amount of marital intimacy, ANR, Christ-centered ANR, church, career, family or anything else is worth your relationship with your Lord and Savior. Spend quality time with the God of the universe everyday. Sola Scriptura. Solus Christus.
10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing … Continue reading The Proverbs 31 woman
I just got off the phone with an extremely godly man I’ve been blessed to know, let’s call him Elder T, as I’m sure I’ll refer to him frequently. A biblical counselor with decades of experience and faithfulness to the Lord, he has really been there for me, and is like a spiritual father. The … Continue reading I hope you have that conversation before marriage
The bride, to her groom: Set me as a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of YHWH. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. -Song 8:6-7 (NIV … Continue reading Set Me as a seal over Your Heart for Love is as Strong as Death
Email I recently received: “I have met two Christian men on ANR dating sites and all of them are like myself, in that they were sexually active before they gave their life to Christ. And each of them has the same opinion on nursing vs sex. Each of them believed that nursing can be a permissible act … Continue reading ANR outside marriage = adultery
This is not just the challenge given to Christians once they are in – it is the invitation extended to all. If it’s true that “What you win them with is what you win them to” then the message of revival within the church and the message of evangelism for those outside the church is … Continue reading not a fan.
ANRSpace is like a sports grill restaurant with a bar that’s frequented by well-endowed ladies who aren’t allowed to show cleavage. Additionally, this eatery always has the latest music playing from overhead speakers, which sometimes produce sexually suggestive lyrics, and there are also a few erotic paintings hanging on the wall in the dimly-lit hallway leading to … Continue reading ANR dating site analogies. Please be above reproach.
Note: I don’t endorse Rick Warren The path to wholeness begins with brokenness. The way to blessing starts with mourning. And the journey to strength is through weakness. The End of Me is a revolutionary book that invites you to find the end of yourself because only then can you can embrace the inside-out ways … Continue reading The End of Me
I’m always looking for solid Christian co-laborers to help serve our brothers and sisters in Christ. I’m able to see search phrases that lead to the blog. From these search terms, I could tell many ANR-desirous folks are Christians looking for resources online. Praise God for adding Ray Stone as a fellow author. May He … Continue reading Always looking to add co-authors
