“Ask God to take away any desire for any woman other than your wife. Plead for this.”
- Ask God that he would make sin sickening to you, not just morally wrong.
- Ask him to make biblical realities, like hell and heaven, terribly and wonderfully real to you — real enough to taste and feel.
- Ask him to open your eyes to the glory of the spiritual world “where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.”
- Ask him to give you a massive desire for ultimate Pleasure in God that is so strong that it makes sinful pleasures nauseous.
- Ask him to transpose the pleasures of intimacy with your wife into foretastes of the unending ecstasies of heaven.
I recently received a copy of the new ‘Tier Three Transgender Training’ materials that the U.S. Army is now using in mandatory training for all soldiers. LGBT/demoncrat politicians are pushing their agenda
Children brought out Spurgeon’s brightest and tenderest side. Here are thirteen quotes by Spurgeon about raising Godly children.“As soon as a child is capable of being lost, it is capable of being saved.”
I imagine you have read Douglas Adams’ quip before: “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” It’s funny because we can all identify with it. We all know the panic of approaching deadlines, the pain of watching them fly on by, the guilt of explaining why we missed again. We all know the problem of procrastination that leads to so many of those misses. Procrastination is a tricky little problem that can take …
Death didn’t catch Charles Spurgeon off guard. The pastor spent his whole life dying every day.Here are ten Spurgeon quotes for those who want to die well.
I don’t watch a lot of movies these days, largely because it’s rare that I can find something that promises to reward me more richly than spending the same amount of time in a good book. That said, I do enjoy the occasional miniseries when I can catch it on Netflix or iTunes; I guess I find it easier to part with forty minutes than two hours. Even with that limited exposure there’s something I have observed and something that …
Nancy Pelosi: Republicans are “Dishonoring God” by Attempting to Defund Planned Parenthood
Helen Keller stated:
“I thank God for my handicaps, for, through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God.”
Before he saved you, he knew everything you would do:
What is a man’s greatest challenge? Of all the virtues described in the Bible, which is the one that causes men the most pronounced struggle as they seek to exemplify it? Many will be tempted to look straight to sexual purity and the allure of sexual sin, but in his book, A Man’s Greatest Challenge Dai Hankey looks at another virtue: Self-control. I am inclined to agree with him. I have often described self-control as “the lost virtue” and can …
Conservative ideas are under attack. YouTube does not want young people to hear conservative ideas as they currently list 26 PragerU videos– over 10 percent of our entire collection–under “restricted mode” making it impossible for many young people to access our videos. Many families enable restricted mode in order to keep inappropriate and objectionable adult and sexual content away from their children–not to prevent them from watching animated, age-appropriate, educational videos.
Abortion. Euthanasia. Pornography. Same-sex marriage. Transgender rights. Embryonic research. Genetic enhancement. Christians surveying the cultural landscape in the West have a clear sense that things are headed in a destructive direction. While most believers can easily identify the symptoms of decline, few feel competent to diagnose and address the root causes. There are many complex factors behind these developments, but one invaluable tool for better understanding and engaging with our culture is the concept of worldview. The sociological quakes and moral fissures we observe in our day are largely due to what we might call “cultural plate tectonics”: shifts in underlying worldviews and the collisions between them.

Democrats are still beside themselves. After eight years of funneling money to international friends of Planned Parenthood, liberals are struggling to come to grips with the idea that global aid should do exactly that: help.
Do you use an iPhone? Watch Netflix? Listen to Spotify? Then you love capitalism and can’t stand big government. How do we know? Jared Meyer of the Foundation for Government Accountability explains.
CARACAS — With 65 dead in the last 60 days of marching in the streets, it’s worth looking at what these protests are really about: a constitutional crisis that strikes at the heart of rule of law in Venezuela. This is more important than the food shortages, the dissident harassment, the crime and corruption or any of the other factors that also fuel the protests. Basically, freedom itself is at stake.
All of the following statements, unless otherwise identified, come from the mouth of Papa (who fills the role of God in the novel and in the film). “The first aspect of God is never that of the absolute Master, the … Continue reading →
There are days when it is hard to read the news. I open my browser and see another set of headlines, I open my blog reader and see another collection of stories, and I despair. If it is not wars and rumors of war, it is other indicators that this world is sick and dying and in its death throes. I enjoy Al Mohler’s daily podcast and often listen to it while preparing and eating my breakfast, but a scan …

When it comes to prayer, there are few people I would rather learn from than Joel Beeke. He has spent most of his life as a student of the Puritans and has often written about their commitment to prayer and their practice of it. In a new little booklet titled Piety: The Heartbeat of Reformed Theology, he offers a series of extremely helpful tips for prayer. Here is what he says: Prayer and work belong together. They are like two …
Christ is magnified in my death because I experience death as gain. This now means that Christ is magnified in my death because Christ satisfies me so fully in death that, in spite of all I lose by dying, I experience death as gain. Christ is shown to be magnificent in my dying when I experience my dying as gain because I get more of Christ.
Our most powerful weapon in the fight against sexual temptation is not better accountability, but profound humility.
