About Jason Collins, Homosexuality and Christianity

Jason collins

Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — About Jason Collins, Homosexuality and Christianity Two weeks ago I posted about a then-unknown pro athlete who was shortly going to “come out” and declare his homosexuality. Yesterday NBA pro Jason Collins ended the suspense by announcing not only that he was the one, but that he’s also, in his own words, someone who “takes the teachings of Jesus seriously.” So this is how I’d respond to him if given the chance. Dear Continue Reading

The Unscheduled Appointment

Every Thursday we’ll post something to do with relational or emotional concerns. Hope it helps. — The Unscheduled Appointment I love what I do for a living, and count myself hugely blessed when I remember how rare it is for your work and your first love to be the same. I come alongside men getting serious about their holiness, I write on subjects that matter to me, and I speak to churches and conferences, all of which I’d do as a volunteer if I had to do something else for income. My work is my passion, so I’m a pathetic brat if (and when) Continue Reading

Facing The Fire


Every Wednesday we’ll post something to do with doctrine and recovery.  — Facing the Fire “Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire ---” I Corinthians 3:11-13 Any Christian feeling a call to service should get a good grasp on the parable of stewardship in Matthew 25:14-30. It describes a master commissioning his servants with differing amounts of money, then taking a long trip, Continue Reading

Hear Ye


Every Tuesday we’ll be posting an article about restoring and strengthening marriages that have been damaged by sexual sin. Hope it’s helpful. — Hear Ye My wife says I never listen to her. At least I think that's what she said. ~Author Unknown Bill Cosby called it The Weapon, a technique husbands instinctively catch onto early in marriage, and use as needed. The wife says something he’d rather ignore, like “Did you take the trash out?” or “We need to talk about taxes.” His mind is elsewhere, or he’s watching his favorite TV show, Continue Reading

The Madness of “Mine”


Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — The Madness of “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 Continue Reading

Let’s Unite in Prayer for Boston


I’ll be taping a series of interviews at Daystar Television in Texas on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. In lieu of the normal Marriage and Doctrine postings I do on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, let’s instead continue in prayer over Monday’s horrific attack on Boston. Please join me in bringing these requests before the throne: May God touch and grant supernatural strength and comfort to the families who lost loved ones. May God heal the injured, and ease their pain. May God immediately intervene and prevent any further attacks that Continue Reading

Walking Strong


Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — Walking Strong This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16) I’ve finally gotten back into serious workouts after a more than twenty year hiatus, and I’m glowing. Energy’s high, stress is hugely reduced, sleep is deeper, and – (drum roll) – I’ve all but lost my taste for fast foods. That may be the biggest miracle, because hamburgers and burritos have been my bad company for too long, and Continue Reading
