When we read the Bible, we find only two things expressed as “a double-edged sword.”
Do you know those two things? Here they are:
- The Word of God: “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD, – – -” (Hebrews 4:12a)
And, Continue reading Only Two things are like “a double-edged sword”
A4P Guest: Where do I find a born-again Christian man who loves Jesus to death and has no sexual struggles?
A4P: Easy. He is found in a cemetery as a dead-man or in heaven as an alive-in-Christ-man. ///
Hmm, I offended some people?
My friend, fornication, cohabitation, adultery and homosexuality are becoming our “alternative lifestyles” (we who profess to be Christians) while the Word of God says to us, “- – -Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
Divorce is becoming one of the ways we deal with difficult marriages while God says, “I hate divorce.” (Malachi 2:16) Continue reading “You offended some people by the video message you uploaded yesterday”
A4P Guest: “I’m a 22 year-old girl. I’ve been seeing this nice guy, 24 years old, for a couple years now. He is very serious about his faith in Christ (which I love the most). He is solid on his stand about sexual purity and what marriage should be. He loves me and cares about me. But these days, I feel like he doesn’t care about me but about himself and his goals. He is a very hard-worker, loves education and serves in his church. But he is not that passionate about me anymore. He used to at the beginning of our relationship but not anymore. He is just too busy with other things. I don’t even know how I can decide to marry him. I’m tired of being in a relationship but not being happy. What’s wrong with me?”

“Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.” James 1:27
Wow! Worthless! It means their religion or the relationship they claim they have with Jesus has no value or use; or their religion is “deserving contempt”. ///
After my Berhan and I met for the first time, we didn’t start dating right away. I was busy with my school work and didn’t have time for other stuff. So, I was only willing to talk to him over the phone. I always had exams to worry about and didn’t accept his “Can I take you out for a cup of tea” requests for more than six months. What were we talking about on the phone then? Well, I used to tell him about my future plan, what I would like to be and most importantly I used to tell him what kind of man I might be interested in to marry. Mind you, I was 17.

Somebody shared this with me this morning and I want to share it with you all.
The truth goes both ways though:
If a man is looking for a woman who is an angel, he has to be
“heaven” since angels don’t live in hell.
If a woman is looking for a man who is an angel, she has to be “heaven” since angles don’t live in hell. ///
A4P Guest: “I have a very serious sexual struggle with porn, masturbation and sleeping with girls. It is just impossible for me to stop these things. I always find it very easy to convince a Christian girl to sleep with me; whether she is a virgin or not. I always get up and decide never to do it again but I will find myself going back to it. I invite a girl to my apartment and persuade her to watch porn with me and the rest is history. I ran into your page recently, like a week ago. So, I decided to ask you this. What should I do to stop this vicious cycle of deciding never to do it and going back to it all over again? I want to straighten out my life before God. But please do me a favor; I don’t need a ten-page long answer. I only need one line. I don’t have time and patience to read your long answers.”
A4P: Hmm. Okay. So, here is my short answer: I so far wrote and posted more than 400 short as well as long articles on this page in the area of sexual purity/immorality. So, get busy reading and putting into practice the biblical principles you find in them. ///
A4P Guest: “I’m a 24-year-old Christian man. I know that sex before marriage is a sin and I don’t want to sin against God but because of my unique sexual nature, I’m sinning against God almost every day with porn and everything. My sexual desire is getting stronger and stronger every day. What should I do to decrease it? It is driving me nuts!”
A4P: (Thank you for giving me permission to share this on the page! Bless you!)
First, congratulations for having sexual desires, one of the signs of good physical health.
Second, as far as I know, there is no “my sexual desire is getting stronger and stronger every day” kind of thing unless you have a serious health problem, for example, high testosterone level in your bloodstream. Continue reading It is getting stronger and stronger
