Husbands love your wives

November 10, 2008

A colleague and I had some lunch.  At lunch, we read through 1 Corinthians 7:1-16.  Basically there are two sections here, “Principles of Marriage” and “Keep Your Marriage Vows” (these are how my NKJV bible chooses to title them).

The first section seems to deal with the physical passions that are necessary in a marriage.  Don’t, as a husband, neglect her.  And vice versa.  It is interesting how Paul mentioned that those who have that desire and have a tough time controlling, should get married.  Paul was a very wise man indeed.

Also, to note, our the biblical roles.  God has ordained the man as the leader, and head of the household.  The wife, the helpmate.  No role is above the other, rather they are equal and perfect when attuned to God’s will!  We as men are not called to Lord it over our wives, and also, our wives should support us.

Marriage truly is two becoming one.  She is mine, and I am my wife’s.

I have been married almost eight years.  I really have forgotten what the single life is about.  Frankly, I don’t care much to go back to those days.  Unlike much of the world, I don’t feel locked down with a ball and chain when married to my wife.  You know why?  Because, also unlike the world, we realize our roles.  The world says we should have equal sharetime in our roles.  We should both be leaders and helpmates.  Right.  The world has also produced a + 50% divorce rate.  No thanks!  Too many chiefs and not enough indians, is what I say.

So, keep your marriage vows.  Know your roles.  Love each other and trust God.  I think you’ll be better in the long run.  And remember, it ain’t always a bed of roses.  It isn’t always peachy.

Hitler Christian?!?

July 11, 2008

A commenter recently stated:

Hitler was a devout Xian. He’s one of yours, not ours. You can deny it all you want, but head over to your favorite quotation web page and look him up. Stalin you say? Stalin’s problem with religion was about removing a rival powerbase. The gunmen were all Xian. Saddam and bin Laden had Allah on their side. Bush thinks Jesus told him to invade Iraq. Even if the wars were territorial, each side vehemently proclaimed that their god was on their side.

What?  This is news to me.  Did he follow Jesus’ example by loving their neighbor?  Did he turn the other cheek?  Was Hitler really a Christian?

No.  The truth is, Hitler was a secular atheist who used religion to promote his socialist government.  The national socialist.  Hitler’s buddy, Raushning stated, “You’re either a Christian or a German, you can’t be both.”

After all, I don’t recall God stating Mein Kempf as his Holy Word.  Well, evil old Hitler replaced the Holy Bible with his book in schools, and Nazism (not Christianity) was declared the state religion.  Besides, he massacred 1000s of Christians who either opposed the government, or helped their Jewish brothers.

Does this sound like someone who claims to be a Christian?

“‘It is through the peasantry that we shall really be able to destroy Christianity because there is in them a true religion rooted in nature and blood”.

Yeah, the neo-pagan himself, Adolph Hitler said that in reply to his disdain towards.  Hitler intended and is quoted as saying he is going to stamp out Christianity.  Hmm…that sure doesn’t sound like someone who abides by the Gospels.

No kiddos.  Hitler was a war mongering envious dictator who used religion to gain power, and once power was obtained, threw out his rhetoric and embraced his secular longings.

The point is, many claim to be Christians, but we all know we will know them by their fruit.  His fruit was rotten to the core.  No love for Christ there.
