For Standing for Truth

Stand for truth! Speak the truth in love. If you find yourself not understanding Biblical passages, dig, re-read, study, become equipped. We are called to be disciples of truth and are told to be ready in and out of season to defend our faith. There are many church leaders coming to the realization that divorce is a HUGE problem amongst their congregations. Due to their failure to address unforgiveness, bitterness, etc… They unknowingly have been silent on matters in order to keep their membership numbers up, but what good is it if they don’t warn their members of “remarriage” and even worse-leading them into a false sense of security by ignoring the word of God, and allowing them to believe grave covers them to continue in their “legalized adultery” states rather than upholding the word of God and calling sin sin and teaching that it is indeed a matter of salvation! God will not be mocked. Pieces of paper do not dissolve marriages. Forsaking sin is repentance… By being silent on ongoing state of adultery, they are thereby giving their members reason to believe there is one sin you don’t have to forsake: adultery. The first 1500 years of Christians all knew adultery was not “fornication”and taught that without fail. Even secular writers knew fornication could never be committed when a marriage had taken place. Erasmus’ translation, King Henry XIII, and new translations done by Westcott amd Hort are the reason many have been taught that Porniea means a whole slew of sexual sins, but it is falsehood. Only death dissolves marriage. Please research this for yourself. This is a good sound site




By Dr. Stephen Kim This one is straight-forward.  The only way to properly repent of adultery is to stop it. The only way to dissolve a legal marriage that was really adultery in the eyes of God is through a legal divorce. Point # 1: “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except […]

Covenant marriage matters

image imageThe clearest teachings on marriage and divorce is evident. Christ did not misspeak. The whole Bible is God-breathed. Paul teaches nothing new or different. Whoever says grace allows them to remain in unrepentant sin, well, clearly….they “HAVE NOT READ”




A Message to Moderns

This is a very long sermon, but in this day of compromise in churches, sound-bite technology, a pleasure-seeking society and “my truth” it is a very important sermon. Message to Moderns Acts 17:22-32 “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye […]

God hates divorce?

My Only Comfort

Does Malachi 2:16 teach that God hates divorce?

The King James: For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

The New King James: “For the LORD God of Israel says That He hates divorce, For it covers one’s garment with violence,” Says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, That you do not deal treacherously.”

The New American Standard: “For I hate divorce,” says the LORD, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong,” says the LORD of hosts. “So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.”

The English Standard: Malachi 2:16 “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the LORD, the God of…

My Personal Story: Openness

We are commanded to forgive every bit of sin committed against us. This is a beautiful example of a soft heart obeying the Lord and extending the same love, mercy, and grace to her husband. As James says, consider it all joy when various trials come. My prayer is for hardhearts to be broken and softened, for the eyes and hears to be opened to our Lord, and that they are good and faithful servants to all.
What a beautiful testimony!

Hopeful Wife Today


I would have to say that the single most difficult thing for my husband is openness. I think it is this way with most men who are addicted to pornography. This is because the men that hide porn do so out of guilt and shame. Therefore, their whole life is wrapped around secrecy. Their wives do not truly know them at all. What we know is actually a fake version of our husbands. That is until we find out the truth.

I’ll never forget the first time my husband actually admitted he had a struggle. Previously, he had admitted failure, but he quickly brushed it off. He tried to convince me of a miraculous healing where he never had a single lustful thought again. Believe me, I do accept God’s amazing healing powers. However, I am not going to be deceived. I know that when a man is addicted to…

Kristy’s Story

Amen amen!! Covenant Marriage Restored!!

Jake Tilley

I am so humbled and blessed to be able to be a guest contributor on my husband’s blog today.  I’ve struggled with where to start and what to say.  Then I remembered some wise words I once heard in regards to writing.  When you’re in doubt about where to start, it’s always best to go from the beginning.  So that’s where I’ll begin….

Jake and I got married the first time in 2007.  We had an amazing life together and truly loved each other and every minute we had together.  We made a lot of memories and shared a lot of laughs.  We grew our family in 2010 and our daughter was born.  Life looked good.  We were active members of our church and our little family seemed perfect.  In March of 2013, we experienced a miscarriage.  This was by far the most tragic thing I had ever experienced.  At…

Acts on Prayer – A Man Who Moves God

Grace in Waves

Isaiah 66:1-2

(1)  Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?

(2)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

Acts chapter 10 records for us the wonderful conversion of Cornelius. Scripture tells us that this man was a Roman centurion. It is possible he might have been the centurion Luke mentions in chapter 7 of his gospel (Luke 7:1-9). Whether he was or was not is not the point. What we need to learn from Cornelius is how this Roman centurion, clearly a Gentile, and most likely brought up in…

Acts on Prayer – Sometimes God Changes the Agenda.

Grace in Waves

When Cornelius prayed to God in Acts chapter 10, the Lord answered his prayers by telling him: “Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.” Then he told him to send men to Joppa and look for Simon Peter (Acts 10:1-5) who was lodging at the home of Simon the Tanner. God was preparing to change Cornelius’ perspective by revealing to him salvation through Jesus Christ.

The next day, God was also answering Peter’s prayers.

More Than Seedlings – Part 1: Making a Difference by Being Different

Grace in Waves

“…The kingdom of God is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field…” Matthew 13:31

Christ used this illustration as part of a series of parables where He was communicating the nature of the kingdom of God. He offered this comparison right before He gave his parable about the wheat and tares.


I’m no farmer. In fact, when I was a kid my mom tried to get me to help her weed her garden, but I couldn’t tell the good stuff from the bad stuff. Worse, I often trampled the good stuff. One day it got so bad my mom finally lost her patience and said: “Glenn! Glenn! get out of here. You’re killing everything!” Then she made my brothers help her. (Hahaha! Win-win for me!) Anyway, if I were a farm hand on a place that grew wheat, there’s no way…
