SPIRITUAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DANGERS OF PRE-MARITAL SEX

We shall consider the dangers of pre-marital sex to both boys and girls. Some people think only the girls are affected, that is not true.

Students should concentrate on their studies and develop healthy relationships with the opposite sex. It is not morally right for any single girl or boy to become a parent as a student, therefore, students are advised to abstain from unhealthy relationships. Many school girls had been deceived by boys with ‘sweet’ and enticing words. One day I was holding an academic seminar with a group of school boys and girls of secondary school age and few university undergraduates. I asked them some of those enticing but deceitful words that can make the heads of the girls to spin. I heard words like: [...]

EMPOWERED FOR GREATNESS –PART II

Little did Gideon realize that God had empowered him for greatness. He was troubled about the oppression of the Midianites, and God raised him up to deliver His people. God sent him to war with 300 soldiers instead of the 3,000 soldiers he had prepared earlier on, and God gave them a resounding victory. The God who empowered Gideon for greatness at that time is still the same today and for ever. He is still in the business of empowering His children to do exploits for Him [...]

EMPOWERED FOR GREATNESS – PART I

Background Story:

The man Gideon is our text case. I will start with a background story as found in the book of Judges Chapter 6: 1- 14.The Israelites as we read in the Bible were special people unto God. He loved them so much and He would always fight for them against their enemies. But whenever they turned their backs against God, He in turn would use their enemies to punish them so as to win back their attention. Let us back up a little bit and read from Judges Chapter Four, verse 1, [...]

NINE INGREDIENTS OF DIVINE LOVE IN PRACTICE BY A CHRISTIAN HUSBAND

There is no doubt that what is expected of a Christian husband is not an easy task at al. it is only the divine presence of the Holy Spirit described in its fullness from 1 Corinthians 12 that can lead on to these nine ingredients of love in 1 Corinthians 13.

A BALANCED CHRISTIAN HOME: I WILL LOVE AND YOU WILL OBEY – PART I

Part of the introduction to the book of HOSEA in Good News Bible reads:

The prophet Hosea preached in the Northern kingdom of Israel... during the troubled times before the fall of Samaria in 721 B.C... Hosea boldly pictured the faithfulness in terms of his own disastrous marriage to an unfaithful woman. Just as his wife Gomer turned out to be unfaithful to him, so God’s people had deserted the Lord ...Yet in the end God’s constant LOVE for His people will prevail and He would win the nation back to Himself and restore the relationship. This love is expressed in chapter 11:8, ‘How can I give up Israel? How can I abandon you...My heart will not let me do it! My love for you is strong. [...]

A BALANCED CHRISTIAN HOME: MY IN-LAWS ARE DOMINATING PART II

Another problem is the pressure to marry due to age. If the couple are not financially sound as to be able to live and stay alone, they may be tempted to stay in their parents’ home. On the other hand a working couple with children who allow their parent to live as nanny permanently or semi-permanently with them may also be inviting interference or domination by parents and /or in-laws. A student couple still depending on in-laws and parents for fees and other maintenance allowance can’t but be controlled by the donor. Gifts could be a bait, impatience could enslave, bad planning could be dangerous, without leaving you will remain forever bound. A country is never independent until she has escaped the domination of her masters by peace or struggle. You must start by leaving, then you can go to a higher step of cleaving. [...]

A BALANCED CHRISTIAN HOME: MY IN-LAWS ARE DOMINATING - PART I

Imagine yourself, faced with a sobbing lady who had come for counselling. Having prayed with her, you listened very patiently to her as she shares her problem with you. All of a sudden as if to sandwich the weeping, she broke down with these words only: “My in-laws are dominating.” Surely you will wonder why, how and to what extent is this allegation true. A proof of the fact that any married couple is prone to have this problem is that, almost all intending couples are always warned against the interference of the outsiders especially the in-laws. We would examine the causes of this problem, its effect on the Christian home and the remedy for this cancer of the unwise Christian home. [...]
