Consent is too flimsy a foundation for Ana Steele to justify the destructive things that are done to her by Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” For this reason I consider “Fifty Shades” to be grossly sexually destructive – especially of women – and I am boycotting … Continue reading Consent is Not Enough
[Editor’s Note: For mature readers.] Truth has one shade and this is what it looks like. The mass media and throngs of women are swooning over the “love story” Fifty Shades of Grey.

While thousands of women are fantasizing about the controlling and abusive Christian Grey from … Continue reading The Reality of a “Fifty Shades” Relationship

We are seeing church attendance drop off tremendously. We are seeing the church weakened tremendously. The discouragement of preaching against homosexuality from the pulpit. There are indications of the softening of sexual morality of the christian church, especially the leadership. Kevin Swanson suggests that it is a demonic force that has a hold of the church.

This edition of When His Secret Sin Breaks Your Heart is newly revised from the 2003 edition. I have grown in my convictions about how to survive the devastation of an unfaithful spouse and have continued to hold to the Ancient Truths as the pathway God desires for us. As difficult as this subject is, God is still, and will always be, not just the One with the answers but is Himself the answer that we long for.
I have chosen to use a unique format for this book –answering letters from various hurting wives I have encountered.

The main think I want to emphasize throughout the book is how IMPORTANT it is that you see Jesus in your situation. Having practical answers is secondary to this. Continue reading “When His Sin Breaks Your Heart”
