Questions People Ask About Support Groups

Support-Group-Logo

We’re excited about the formation of our on-line groups for families with gay loved ones, and for men struggling with the use of porn or other sexual behaviors. After 27 years of providing one-on-one Biblical counseling for people wrestling with these issues, we realize many folks don’t have access to a Christian counselor who specializes in these areas. So we’re launching these groups to more effectively meet the needs of the population we serve. When someone considers joining a group, they have questions. To help you decide whether or not Continue Reading

At Genesis Biblical Solutions, we know the value of support, and what it means to anyone who is going through a crisis in a relationship, or struggle with a life-dominating issue.

Several years ago I was teaching a five day seminar on purity for men. The location was a seaside resort town, the venue was a hotel, the meeting room overlooked the beach, and I think you see the problem. Continue Reading

The Angry Wife

conflict

It seems nothing works with her. A kind word is met with a rebuff. Touching and lovemaking are out of the question. Any little thing (or nothing at all) seems to set her off, and she’s willing to shout, accuse or cut down at a moment’s notice. She’s an angry wife, and she’s not alone. Plenty of marriages are falling apart, largely because of a husband’s sin, a wife’s ongoing anger over the sin, and the couple’s inability to deal with the fallout. What to do? In fairness, let’s first admit that some men and women are simply angry people. Continue Reading

Pedaling Among the Weary

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. -Galatians 6:9 I’m going into training for the April Bike-A-Thon our church sponsors every year. Proceeds go to send abused kids to camp, and I’m always blessed and proud to participate. Continue Reading

Lord of the Bruised

Reeds

A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory. -Matthew 12:20 I want that kind of heart. I want to look at a bruised reed and feel protective, appreciating its fragility and its potential. Without that, everything else seems empty. These words from Isaiah 42, re-quoted in Matthew, are interesting, aren’t they? “A bruised reed He will not break.” Matthew cites this as a prophetic reference to Jesus, and it’s important to note this description comes right after a heated Continue Reading

TIME Magazine, Evangelicals, and Gays

Time Magazine cover

Last week TIME magazine ran a feature story on evangelical churches that are changing their position on homosexuality. The article said, in essence, that Evangelicals are experiencing a shift in our thinking, similar to the kind many segregationist Christians experienced during the Civil Rights Movement. To a point I have to agree - certainly, a growing number of believers are re-thinking the issue. And while I strongly disagree with those who are adopting a pro-gay interpretation of the Bible, and of Christianity itself, I want to hear what Continue Reading

The Madness of “Mine”

Mine

I was driving in the front seat trying really hard to be the driver Thinking that I was making real good time But always winding up a late arriver But now I’ve been riding in the back seat and I find it is a very great relief Now I’m trying out the back seat And I’m leaving all the driving to The Chief. - “Front Seat Back Seat” by Chuck Girard and Tom Coomes” That was a popular Christian song when I was a kid, and it still speaks to me. Because not a day goes by without my feeling challenged to decide who’s in charge and act Continue Reading
