Nabal was named correctly, as he was worthless,...senseless....full of hate, stingy, and unresponsive to the men who had saved his livelihood, and life.
But we are talking about a different matter.
Oh yes, Abigail was brilliant,....bold when she needed to be, silent when she knew it would do best, a wise woman, and she became a powerful woman politically as a result of her action in the time of dire consequence, when her family may have been slaughtered.
Yes, she went around her husband too. Point taken.
I am speaking now, of a man who shoulders his God given responsibilities, worships the powers bove, worships his wife and children, and handles every problem and disappointment with courage, and faith in God.
A wife needs to be supportive at that time. Not like Job’s wife, who when all hell had been poured down upon her and her family and husband, understandably, cried out in defeat to Job, “ Curse God, ....and die!”
Get it over with! Admit defeat! But Job would not give up.
This is what Gay, and Lesbian fighters want.
“ Give it up! You are surrounded by US, and we hold the power of influence, as movie and entertainment leaders are in control, politicians in Washington are immoral, murderers,homosexuals themselves, many.”
The tide is against you Christians! Give up!
No. They will survive as those who have separated themselves from the world. True , loyal Christians accept no compromise, remain firm in Gods ways and directives.
Good Christian husbands recognize wives who are loyal, loving, faithful, and honor them as equals in the race for life and integrity. These husbands give all to their wives and children, putting themselves second , and their desires ,hobbies, interests second to the family’s needs.
These Christian men sacrifice their time, and bodies, in hard work, full time, and protect their families with their lives. And they go to the point of doing the best they can for their children’s children too.
Gay and Lesbian are unnatural, adoptive families, who will struggle, but in the end, receive as an inheritance a crippled outlook on what is good and bad, and they will suffer as their parents do, working what is obscene, and not having God’s blessing on their family, as Paul states,
“God, gives them up to do the things not fitting.” Romans 2
Did Eve suffer as Gen3:16 said? That Adam would dominate her?
Well, she submitted to having many children, and obviously did not leave her husband at all , but came to crave him as God said would happen.
A good wife, treated well and with love should crave her husband, not scheme to dump him for a younger man, or one more wealthy, as we see happening today. Or sexual urges for the same sex, KNOWING it is a forbidden and disgusting thing to be ashamed of before God and mankind.
No matter what gay and lesbian preferences are, they all clamour for acceptance. The vast majority though, huge majority, would hate to see their sons or daughters defile their life and place of honor in society or in heaven by seeing their child turn to that lifestyle .
The gay and lesbian influence is unhealthy, unbalanced, and in my perception, and I am not alone, is not productive, but counterproductive...no children result from such a union....NONE.
1 John 2:15-17
I see the Mormon church has capitulated now, and welcomes the homosexual community into their ranks as accepted into all stations in the church.
Many JW children, have scorned the Bible, and are entering the gay lifestyle, . They are DFed, and cast out by family and friends. I have members in my family too, that are in that growing group. I do not condemn them. But we both know what the Bible says, and they have passed on being Christians and seek the pleasures of this world, and it’s acceptance.
Christians are foretold to be persecuted and murdered by society as a favor to God soon, as the right thing to do....kill us all, because we refuse to compromise.
So don’t be surprised when this happens.
But, I encourage all here, do not accept compromise with morals, and stay true to Paul, and the Apostles who lived and died horrible deaths by standing out as different, moral, and chaste in the 1st century.
“Be faithful unto death, Jesus said, and I will give you the crown of life.” Rev. 3
