MY WRITINGS

What is wrong with looking at someone other than my spouse or thinking of this person in a sexual way?

When we entertain sexual thoughts about strangers in the theater of our minds, we give ourselves to those images. When we invest our attention and sexual energy with others, we will have little or no sexual energy for our spouse. Lust can lead us down the pathway of poor choices, one compromising thought at a […]

Pleasing God In An Ungodly World

  Noah lived in an ungodly era, a time when the earth was corrupt and filled with violence. The sin that was so rampant in those days brought chaos, disorder, anarchy, and confusion.

Stop condemning yourself. There is therefore no more condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, . . . Remember? Don’t allow yourself be cheated. You […]

Are You A Hopper?

Some youths enter into relationships indiscriminately. They keep hopping around without a sense of direction. They go in, have an accident with the car they’ve decided to drive by themselves without a navigation map. They are broken in pain and need a repair. They end up with endless number of scars. Hello, who sent you […]

Maintaining Emotional And Moral Fidelity

For too many people, Christians included, adultery is the first step out of a marriage. An emotional or sexual attachment to someone other than your spouse creates intense passions that sabotage trust and steal marital intimacy. For that reason, God stated emphatically in the 7th Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Adultery destroys […]
