On Abuse, Part Two: Two Lies That Enable Abuse in the Church

This post is part two in a three part series on abuse. For this series, I teamed up with two other women to share wisdom on abuse in our areas of expertise. My post on the biblical counseling position appeared a couple weeks ago. Today's post is from Jennifer Greenberg, an abuse survivor and author of Those … Continue reading On Abuse, Part Two: Two Lies That Enable Abuse in the Church

On Abuse: Part One

When it comes to the submission conversation, I am learning just how important it is to bring up the not-so-beautiful side. Not every marriage is good, not every spouse seeks to honor God with their marriage, not every husband or wife is a believer. There is a hidden, ugly side of far too many marriages: … Continue reading On Abuse: Part One

On Singleness: A Submission Follow-Up

I have been talking quite a bit recently about submission, being a godly wife, biblical marriage, and the dangers of purity culture. I have spent a lot of time on these issues as they relate to married women. But in doing so, I must also recognize that not all women will marry and that not … Continue reading On Singleness: A Submission Follow-Up

On Submission: Part Two

This is part two of a two-part post on the topic of submission. You can find part one here. Last week, I spent an entire post on what biblical submission is not. It is not treating a wife like she is a child or a husband having totalitarian authority. But what about what submission is? This is … Continue reading On Submission: Part Two

Just As He Promised

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying" (Matthew 28:5-6). He is risen! Today is one of my favorite days … Continue reading Just As He Promised

On Submission: Part One

If you are a Christian or familiar with Christianity at all, you may know that submission is a hot-button topic in the Christian world and among those who are not Christians. Numerous debates have been sparked about complementarianism vs. egalitarianism and the varying spectrum of views found in each overall category. In day-to-day conversation I … Continue reading On Submission: Part One

Legalists, Liberals, and Mark 7

Have you ever been accused of being a Pharisee? I have. Well, sort of. There's no way I'd be able to find the Twitter conversation now (I tend to not bookmark or screenshot these things), but in a debate a few months ago (I know, I know, breaking my own rule), my unwavering stance on … Continue reading Legalists, Liberals, and Mark 7

Why the Gospel Matters

I've been talking a lot recently about making sure you have good theology, why obedience to God matters, and more. I have even more theology and real life related posts coming, including a two-parter on submission (it's really truly coming I promise!!). But before I move forward, I want to take a step or two … Continue reading Why the Gospel Matters

On Obedience

Recently, I shared blog posts on why good theology matters, and another on the dangers that result from putting righteousness before man in front of righteousness before God. Because good theology matters and because legalism is harmful, it is important to discuss obedience. I love this quote. It sums up a lot of biblical principles … Continue reading On Obedience

Why Good Theology Matters

If you've ever read or attempted to read a systematic theology, you know how overwhelming and confusing the study of theology can be. There are so many theories, ideas, systems, discussions, and debates out there and they can be difficult to wade through. It is easy to come to the conclusion that studying deep theology … Continue reading Why Good Theology Matters
