What men and women can learn from Adam and Eve

I’ve been meaning to post this for a long time – but Ive been a bit chicken. Ok, let’s look at some scripture from Gen 2-3. Can we agree that the garden in Eden was a perfect place? God created it and He said it was “good”. Until sin showed up, everything that God did … Continue reading

For the husband is head of the wife as Christ is the Head of the church

Sometimes, no matter how uncomfortable, we need to get to grips with what the bible tells us to do as husbands. Here is one that I’d rather figure out BEFORE I get married, rather than after. What God expects of me as a husband: THEREFORE BE imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], … Continue reading
