‘Submit to your husbands’: Women told to endure domestic violence in the name of God…(linked article)

After I wrote my last blog about how the church as a whole, support domestic violence through its mis-teachings and silence, someone shared this report with me. It backs up everything I was sharing  but is much more scientific and the stats are related to Australia! Please follow this link to read the entire, enlightening article!... Continue Reading →

Were We Created to Marry Young?

Were we created to marry young? Would it even be considered ‘young marriage’ if we were really intended to marry before 18, much less bear children. Does God value the state of marriage MORE then he values the mental, emotional, physical and sexual health of those who are married? I’d love some feedback on this article. There is a large following of people who identify themselves as Christian but do not follow the path of Jesus. Instead they enslave the weak and poor and call it ‘christian’.

Sing Out Loud and Strong

Well…. how young are you thinking? 20? 25? 16? 18? 13?

I read an article (which horrified me in it’s incorrect assumptions and conclusions, so I’m not linking it) recently that stated:

In addition, children do not have the emotional and mental maturity for marriage. According to a study found at Psychology Today, it states:

Spiritual Side of Domestic Violence

By Terry Loving

How can a woman who is often beaten and maltreated “rejoice?” Does Jesus expect her to shout and praise God as the blows land on her precious body? Can she honestly feel good about following a Savior who encourages her to keep her eyes on the prize – heaven – when the beatings drain joy from her soul? And how shall she pray – “Dear Lord, give me the strength to take another body slam, for I give my all to Thee?”


Sadly, many Christian women believe that it is their “duty” to suffer domestic violence and abuse. They have no real Biblical basis for the abuse, only the lies told to them by abusers who misuse the Word to keep them in bondage. Unfortunately, numerous preachers misquote the Bible in ignorance, and embrace male domination to support the abusers in their misdeeds. Granted, the Bible…
