Complementarianism and the Gospel

An unpopular subject these days is the role of the two genders, not only in society at large but especially within the confines of marriage. It gets especially difficult because you often have two extremes in the discussion: those of an egalitarian, feminist stream, and those of the "gimme a beer" woman stream. Some in...

Where are the husbands?

Christian husbands, let me present a parable for you: if your wife one day told you, "Honey, I'm about to take a casual stroll through that dangerous part of town that even the cops don't go to," would you let them? If they told you, "Honey, I'm about to go have a nice private chat... Continue Reading →

The Sham of Love Equality

When the Supreme Court met a while ago to begin deliberation on the issue of DOMA and Prop-8, and then released their recent decisions on both, I saw some of the usual repeated mantras over social media. "Hooray for love equality!" some said. Others put up the equal-sign for their profile pic, saying to their... Continue Reading →

Modern Marriage and Modern Theology

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your... Continue Reading →

What a man wants

As this post suggested, I recently became engaged to a wonderful daughter of God.
