It is becoming the norm these days to notice new security cameras being emplaced in most shopping centers and even around small neighborhoods. Even yesterday, while I was driving around in my neighborhood, I noticed more than five new security cameras and I read a sign next to one of them that says something like, “security camera for your safety.”
Safety? Hmm! Continue reading Safety? Hmm!
The toughest and busiest day just passed! It was tough and busy day because I was trying to do five things at the same time. Anyways, I survived it! Praise the LORD!
So, when I found a minute to sit, I read some of the comments which were dropped off on the post titled “Pleading for Physical Abuse to Continue.”
Reading the comments, I said, “Huh?” once or twice. And I sat down to write this as “my last threading point”.
I said “last” because we have a lot of issues to bring up on this page. We can’t afford to be stuck on one topic. Let’s agree to disagree and move on to the next point as adults.

A4P Guest: I’m a leader for our church’s worship group. We are eight, including me. Four of us stand at one time to lead the worship. I’ve been leading this worship group since 2008 and I have no problem with any of them but one girl. This girl is a very nice girl and everything; but there is one issue. I told to every one of the worship leaders that we need to dress respectfully when we stand behind the pulpit but this girl wears these very tight pair of pants where anyone can trace every part of her body down there. Two of our church ministers already complained about it to me and I generally talked to all of the worship leaders about how we need to present ourselves, without picking on her but she doesn’t seem to listen. What can I do?

A4P Guest: “So are you saying that if a married couple feels comfortable doing any sexual act, such as anal sex, it is acceptable before God?”
A4P: Hmm! When I read your question, I remember this saying that goes like this: “I’m only responsible for what I say not for what you understand.”
I also remember this saying, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
The question that begs an answer here is not whether the married couples agree on the act or not, but who those agreed married couples are?

If you look in the dictionary for the word or phrase “a lone ranger” you will find this definition: “one who acts alone and without consultation or the approval of others.”
Can one of my organs be a lone ranger and make it?
Hmm! Can you just imagine if my heart one day wants to act alone, take a decision without consulting with my brain and without the approval of the other body organs and say something like this: “I want to chill today; I want to take a one week vacation because I am tired of pumping blood?”

A4P Guest: I came to your page recently and I am trying to catch up with your writings going into your website archives. I love what I read so far except one, titled “Broke my heart into pieces” where you advised a wife to call 911 because her husband was abusing her physically. I can’t believe that you are advising the woman to do that. I am a living testimony where I changed from one person to another completely different person because of my wife’s patience and prayer. Twelve years ago, I used to abuse her physically, mentally and emotionally. Right now, I am a loving husband to her and a loving father to my two sons. If my wife had called 911 during that time, our marriage would have been history. So, why don’t you advise wives to be submissive enough as the Bible says so that their husbands will change and their marriages will be saved instead of advising them to call 911?”

This video clip should give one basic principle for the common questions I usually receive in my inbox, questions such as “Is this kind of sex position okay” or “Is oral sex okay?”

When I was a little girl, my mom and her friends used to talk a lot about one couple. This particular couple was the most amazingly loving couple you can ever find. Even as a little girl, I used to stare at them whenever they came to visit us.
The husband doesn’t put his hands to himself. He massages his wife’s legs or her shoulder, or caresses her hair. If anybody comments about her dress or style, he will take the stage to talk about how beautiful his wife is.

A4P Guest: “I’ve been following your page for quiet sometimes now. And according to most of your writings and teachings you posted on this Facebook page and on your YouTube videos, you said that sexually addicted people are lonely people and you suggested that they seek help from others. I think it sounds good but the problem is when it comes to putting it into practice.
Who are the people you are referring to, for us to go and talk to, for us to go and tell our secret and dark life to? Most church ministers today have their own issues to deal with and some of them don’t seem to care about anybody. They mind their own business. Some of them don’t even help us but tell our stories to others and make us feel guilty for opening up. So where are you telling us to go? Who are these people you keep on saying “Go and seek help” from? Where are they?” Continue reading “Where are they?”
When we get confronted with the Truth, we sometimes react in the way which is ugly for others to watch. We badmouth people and we look for others who can join us so that we can get together to put down those who told us the Truth.
The thing is if the Truth doesn’t confront us squarely, it can’t directly come to our hearts where the root of sin is found. If it doesn’t come to our hearts, it stays in our brain and makes us “good theologians” who know everything about the Bible but have nothing to do with it. For the truth to confront us, we have to be willing to get hurt by it because Truth crashes our egos and prides which are our number one enemies we carry with us. But the good news is the hurt the Truth brings to our life is the beginning of our healing.
