About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

The "Obey" imperative demeans both bride and groom.

Posted on June 1, 2015 at 5:10pm 5 Comments

The "Obey" imperative demeans both bride and groom. Any man who chooses to marry a woman willing obey means he has a wife and their children dependent on him.

If he wants her to stay home with the kids and can afford to earn the necessary amount to maintain a household, then the mother may choose to stay home. If it is an imperative, the relationship suffers. 

If she wishes to stay home with the children, then that meets both partners' needs.

If he can't earn enough to…

In response to you request to some of the inane remarks coming from Christians to simple questions like, " How are you." Suddenly, you are maddened that you even asked. I've certainly heard, "God bless you" and II reply "May Odin give you many strong children." I must admit that I've never heard, "Let go and let god." I guess that's like  "let Jesus take the wheel," which I just want to be forewarned when that happens so I can pull to the side and let them pass. Again, it is the same with, "God will lead you," I would certainly ask where? The last time I let some one lead me I ended up in a dark alley with a gun in my ribs (not actual, just making a point) I have my own to add to you list which irks be to regurgitation. Try this one. In response to a simple "How are you doing?" I got this, "I blessed and highly favored." I was in a strip club which I used to frequent. I said nothing, but what I was thinking that for being blessed and highly favored she seemed to be in an occupation that suggested otherwise.

 

"It's god's plan."

Dr. T. Have you tried Prometheus books. They publish their guidelines and are very forthcoming about what they seek.That is one of the first places I'd recommend.
