Can You Value Your Wife and Look at Porn?

So many of you know my story here but if you do not know it please check it out here. For many years I played the game of trying to use porn and have a good healthy sexual view of my wife. If you would have asked me several years ago if I could value my wife and still view porn? I would have told you yes. But, that simply is just not true.

Gaystapo: The Tolerance in Homosexual Activists is So Intolerable

The homosexual activists are of course the world leaders in all this. They are experts in rambling on about tolerance while showing not one iota of tolerance to anyone who dares to disagree with their radical agenda. The terms 'gaystapo' or 'pink mafia' were not coined without reason after all.

My Solution to the Same-Sex Marriage Debate, with an Ecclesiology of Exile

I'm not a fan of gay marriage. I have two non-theological arguments against it: (1) It reduces marriage to a legal fiction. Marriage has traditionally or historically been a union between man and woman for the purpose of preventing promiscuity and promoting procreation and life-long partnership.

whether or not masturbabtion in marriage is a sin

Performance anxiety, something we as men face at least once in our lives. It can be caused by a large number of things, and I cannot speak for all men nor can I really speak medically, I know for me a lot of it was caused by one singular factor. I could not live up to what I had seen in porn.

The Art of Being Best Friends with Your Spouse

Keyes: Gay Marriage Is 'A Social Weapon Of Mass Destruction'

In a Renew America column Saturday, Alan Keyes attacked Wyoming Senate candidate Liz Cheney for not denouncing marriage equality strongly enough, claiming that her opposition is so weak that it will only help the gay rights movement.

Pre-marital Sex: Where Does Bible Say It Wrong?

Where does the Bible actually say that pre-marital sex is wrong? My parents have always taught me that the Bible commands us not to have sex before marriage. Now that I’m old enough to think for myself, I’m having serious doubts about this. I haven’t run across anything in Scripture to support their views. In fact, I can’t even find any biblical basis for “traditional” marriage! Isaac and Rebekah didn’t have a church wedding. Apparently they just slept together and that was it! And what about Jo

Rules for Holding Your Marital Relationship Accountable

Are you poisoning your relationships, sharing too much? “Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.” Words, I have learned, can be like the golden apple in Snow White. They look tasty and seem fine but can be a slow releasing poison.

Jael's Hammer's Testimony: I Ignored The Red Flags in Marriage?

Shellie Here: This week, we're going to explore *personal responsibility* a bit and so I was thankful that one of the contributing bloggers was willing to share some of the red flags that she saw but ignored and now, years later, to say that her marriage is "challenging" is a bit of an understatement.

Does Your marriage Need A Tune-Up- By Shellie R. Warren, XXX Church

Being that one of the focuses for this month is accountability, I wanted to address it. Only with a bit of a twist. As someone who does a lot of life coaching, specifically in the area of engaged and married couples, if there’s one thing that I’ve realized is that just like a car needs an oil change every 3,000 miles and a tune-up every few months, it really is important for couples to seek wise counsel. Maybe not all of the time, but at least a couple of times per year.

How to Deal with My Spouse's Annoying Habits?

Is it possible to change your mate? When we got engaged, I thought my spouse could do no wrong. Now that we’re married, I’ve become aware that the person of my dreams actually has some very annoying habits. How do I deal with this situation?

She Told Me That Her Marriage Was Like A Broken Vase

I once had a lady tell me that her marriage was like a broken vase. She said because of her husbands lies their relationship was no longer like a new beautiful vase but a broken one that would never be good for anything. This lady was sitting in the middle of a porn show watching her husband work his job in the industry where the lies began.

Thanksgiving: Thankfulness Improves Your Marriage

My husband and I recently moved. While the house was new to us, the task of blending our separate tastes and treasures was a familiar practice. As we've done before, we carefully added each item, transforming the emptiness into the fullness we know to be home.

Vision Forum: A Note from Doug Phillips

Last week, I announced my resignation from the presidency of Vision Forum Ministries, a 501(c)3 organization. I retain ownership of Vision Forum, Inc., a distinct and private company, but consistent with my desires to lead a quiet life focusing on my family

Doug Phillips of Vision Forum Resigns Due to Affair

There has been serious sin in my life for which God has graciously brought me to repentance. I have confessed my sin to my wife and family, my local church, and the board of Vision Forum Ministries. I engaged in a lengthy, inappropriate relationship with a woman. While we did not "know" each other in a Biblical sense, it was nevertheless inappropriately romantic and affectionate.

Jim Fishback: Defending the Military Marriage

Servicemen and women get top-notch training to complete their mission - to defend life and liberty.

I Thought I Was Making the Right Move……How Could I Have Been So Stupid?

I thought I was making the right move when I dumped my husband and moved in with another man a couple of years ago. But now he's thrown me out, my ex-husband has remarried, my kids don't want anything to do with me, and I'm left out in the cold. How could I have been so stupid? I hope others learn from my experience. — K.S.
