There are some things that are just plain tricky to talk about. The topic of sex is probably on the top of that list. However, Lorraine and Linda have creatively, sensitively, and beautifully written a book that addresses the issue of sexual intimacy in marriage in a way that is respectful and honest. I appreciate their hard work to compile a comprehensive book about sex that is biblical, appropriate, and God-glorifying. I believe that this book can and will minister to the heart of any woman no matter what her background and past experiences are as long as she desires to grow in her understanding of God’s gift of sex. If you truly long to grow and change, you will enjoy and be encouraged by this study of intimacy. But if you are looking for a way to back-up your personal opinions you will find yourself chafing against the content of this book. The authors start off by building a foundational understanding of what sex is and what God thinks about it as found in Scripture. From there the book moves through three phases – general understanding and core beliefs, dealing with personal issues and problems, and finally practical application and help for growing more Christ-like in your marriage.
Logically disproving the Christian God
By Mary Gormandy White Every youth leader needs a bevy of games and activities on hand for youth group. Keeping a ‘stock’ of games and ideas to use in a pinch will prove to be a lifesaver.

Intimate Issues: 21 Questions Christian Women Ask About Sex by Linda Dillow
This is very embarrassing. Imagine the public mistrust that might result from redoing all those books and displays. The malleability of science allows it to assimilate new evidence into the bigger picture. Can religion say the same?
Dear parents, We’ve begun a new series focusing on the theme “Friends and Family.” For the next three weeks, students will study different passages of Scripture to discover the powerful, life-giving exchange that happens in relationship with God and with people he’s given to us to share life with.
Building a family Christian discusses with his son, Jack , what it takes to be a hero. Sometime in his young life, Christian began dating a woman named Margo. He eventually proposed to her, but Christian’s father told him on his wedding day that he disapproved of their union. Nevertheless, he gave him a watch as a family heirloom on that same day. Christian accepted it, but never wore it.
One such occasion demonstrated the tension between them when a young Jack attempted to defend his friend, Marc Silverman , against a pair of older boys. Christian took this fight as a chance to dispel his son’s heroic nature. Christian explained that Jack should not try to be a hero, because he “didn’t have what it takes”. Christian stated many years later that he was like Jack during his childhood, and Jack himself noted after being rescued from the island that his father had been a good storyteller.
He also taught Jack how to play chess at a young age. Carole became pregnant by him, and she gave birth to Claire , their daughter. Christian saw Claire regularly when she was very young, but stopped visiting because Carole disliked sharing Christian with the Shephard family back in America. Christian’s decision to stop visiting was further solidified when Lindsey , Carole’s sister, became hateful and aggressive.
But he loved hanging out with her. So, I just encouraged him to stay in proximity, to grow in his friendship with her, and to hope something would grow from there. Godliness is sexy to godly people.

It came from challenging-religion. I have permission from the atheist to reproduce his questions so that I could respond to them here. His questions are illustrative of the lack of understanding by atheists of both logic and Christian theology. My recommendation is that atheists study both if they want to be a serious intellectual challenge to the Christian faith. Does God have free will? If you say yes, can He choose to do evil?

Godly Relationships Philemon Related Media Once upon a time, a mean old mountaineer fell sick and died. There were no funeral directors back in the hills then, and embalming was not yet practiced. So the widow and family dressed the body and placed it in the coffin. As the deceased was being carried from the house, one pallbearer stumbled, causing the coffin to crash into a gatepost. The knock somehow revived the old mountaineer, who sat up yelling at everyone in sight.
The man lived for over a year and was as mean as ever. Then he got sick and died again. Once more the body was put in the coffin and the pallbearers lifted their burden.

Asa Gilbert Eddy m. Her father, Mark Baker, was a deeply religious man, although, according to one account, “Christianity to him was warfare against sin, not a religion of human brotherhood. Eddy or “our beloved Leader”—was still included in all articles published in the Christian Science journals. She stood before us, seemingly slight, graceful of carriage, and exquisitely beautiful even to critical eyes.
Then, still standing, she faced her class as one who knew herself to be a teacher by divine right. She turned to the student at the end of the first row of seats and took direct mental cognizance of this one, plainly knocked at the door of this individual consciousness. This continued until each member of the class had received the same mental cognizance. No audible word voiced the purely mental contact.
