    I still think cookies are better than cake.

    Oh my goodness this is insane.
     
    For crying out loud we are not all the same.  A husband is not a wife and a wife is not a husband anymore than a truck and trailer are the same.  You can have an old 1950s pickup with a beautiful 2013 fully-loaded trailer - but one is built to LEAD and the other is N OT , regardless of how shiny the metal on the outside happens to be.
     
    The Bible says that the wife is supposed to submit to the husband like the church is supposed to submit to Christ.  What is so hard about understanding this?  Why is this conversation going so long? 
  5. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

    I know it says that the man is supposed to be the head of the woman but what that really means is cookies are better than cake.
  6. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

    KindofBlue, what you call the hierarchy is what is commonly known as the order of the home.  It blows my mind how you keep talking about it like it's a matter of opinion or philosophy when it's one of the clearest things you'll find in the New Testament. 
     
    You are supposed to be the head of the home, you are supposed to have the final say on things.  That's what the Bible says.  It doesn't mean you become some tyrant that doesn't listen to other people. I spend most of my time probably doing what my family wants, it just means that I have the final say on things.
     
    The man is supposed to love his wife like Christ loved the church.  The man is supposed to give his life for his wife as Christ did, but as we are to submit to Christ so too is the wife supposed to submit to the husband.  This is verrrrrrrrry clear in the Bible.   
     
    When world view clearly and undeniably bucks the Bible, then world view isn't worth a pile of beans and needs to be thrown out.

    If we're going to Golden Corral, I'd even eat with Barrak Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.  I'll eat with anyone at Golden Corral. 
     
    That place is awesome.
     
    I love Golden Corral.
     
    A lot.
  8. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

    A:   The Bible states clearly in the New Testament that a wife is to be in subjection and submission to her husband.  He is to be in submission to God and to be the head of the home, she is to be under his authority. 
     
    Nothing new.
     
     
    B:    I'll repeat again the three scenarios that always ring true when there is an able-bodied husband at home and the mother (not a woman without kids) is working outside the home:
     
    1) They'd rather have more income than have a mother at home with the children.

    2) They do not want to lower their standard of living in order to have a mother at home with the children.

    3) The husband is unwilling to get a second job in order to meet the needs of the family.
     
    (As previously stated, I'm not very sympathetic to people's stories because we lived it and I worked three jobs to keep my wife at home with the kids.)
     
     
    C:   Whenever these conversations come up, people always make them situational and not biblical.  Then the situations always fall into 1, 2, or 3 under point B.  Never is a biblical case made for leaving childen in the hands of other people to raise.  Still waiting for a biblical case.
     
     
    D:    Should anyone think that I'm a sexist and not entitled to these opinions, I'd remind you that my wife wrote the book, not me.  It originally was a blog of hers that I suggested she turn into a book. She is waaaaay stronger on this stuff than me.  If were gonna talk biblical finances I bring her into the room, if we gonna talk escatology - then I come in. 
  9. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: If You Had An Opportunity, Who Here Would You Like To Meet?   

    I don't really want to meet any of you.  I kinda like the whole long distance ambiguity thing.
     
    Just kidding.
  10. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

     
    I don't think there's anything biblically off about that at all. 
     
    Notice I said "I've never run into a case where a mother..."  as in a mother with kids at home.  I don't think there's anything unbiblical with a WOMAN working outside of the home so long as she is still operating under the authority of her husband - it's when kids are neglected because the M OT HER is not a keeper AT home. 
  11. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Free Ebook: Thy Kingdom Come   

    I'm planning on doing another five day promo for this, from May 20th-24th.
  12. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: If You Had An Opportunity, Who Here Would You Like To Meet?   

    Brother Rick earned his in a contest.
     
    Brother Rick doesn't have to nag.
     
    When Brother Rick wants cookies, Brother Rick gets cookies.
  13. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: If You Had An Opportunity, Who Here Would You Like To Meet?   

    Kitagirl sent me cookies once, it would be nice to meet her. 
     
    Especially if she had some more cookies or cake available.
  14. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

    I've never run into a case where a mother, who was married to an able-bodied man, had to work outside the home.  Every situation I've ever seen is because they wanted more money, didn't want to give something up or the husband didn't want to work more to earn the needed money.  In other words, something was more important than the kids and the biblical admonition to be a keeper AT home.
     
    When the bottom fell out in 2007 I had to work three jobs to keep my family afloat.  My wife worked as a piano teacher from home during that time as well.  I worked normal hours and also at night when my family was sleeping. 
     
    We cut and cut and cut, and my income went up eventually to where I now only work two jobs and my wife homeschools the kids with no additional income.  I'm blessed to work normal office hours and to write on Tuesday nights and Sunday afternoons (when people are napping).  We still struggle (I'm an "okay" writer, not a good one!) but God is very good to us and we always make it.
     
    It CAN be done.  By doing it that way we've ensured that WE raise our kids, not someone else.  Words cannot express the goodness that comes from that, it is a much greater reward than any amount of money. 
  15. Brother Rick added a post in a topic: Politically Incorrect Topic In My Wife's Free Book   

    Good thoughts, folks.  Thanks.
     
    Sorry the link was bad, I fixed it now.  Too bad the promo is over though.

    "We expect a reigning Christ on earth; that seems to us to be very plain, and put so literally that we dare not spiritualise it." - Charles Spurgeon

    1. Brother Rick

      "You have perhaps imagined that all men will rise at the same moment; that the trump of the archangel will break open every grave at the same instant, and sound in the ear of every sleeper at the identical moment. Such I do not think is the testimony of the Word of God. I think that the Word of God teaches, and teaches indisputably, that the saints shall rise first. And be the interval of time whatever it may, whether the thousand years are literal years, or a very long period of time, I...

    2. Brother Rick

      ...am not now about to determine; I have nothing to do except with the fact that there are two resurrections, a resurrection of the just, and afterwards of the unjust,—a time when the saints of God shall rise, an after time when the wicked shall rise to the resurrection of damnation."

      Don't forget that Spurgeon also said Calvinism is straight from the Bible. :-)

      Ha, I haven't forgotten that, brother.... :-)

    The proof copy of my new book should be here today or tomorrow! Very excited!

    1. HappyChristian

      w00t!

    2. Brother Rick

      A pastor in SC already told me he wants to buy 60 of them because there are so many people in his area that struggle with assurance of their salvation.

    3. HappyChristian

      That's wonderful!

    4. Brother Rick

      Yea, it's really exciting to be able to do what I love and it be spiritual help and blessing to others! I have about 125 paperbacks sold right out the gate.

    5. HappyChristian

      Praise the Lord for that. I know assurance is a big issue with my hubby's family. It's sad.

    6. Jeny

      wow...congrats. where are you publishing?

    7. Brother Rick

      It's published by DayStar publishing. It's not yet available on their site yet (http://www.daystarpublishing.org/), but it is on Amazon now.

  5. Brother Rick

    Anyone ever notice that liberals don't really reproduce? They either abort their babies or they just have froo-froo pets. When was the last time you saw a really big family of liberals? You want to know how liberals reproduce? They take YOUR KIDS and brainwash them in public schools and colleges - THAT'S HOW.

  6. Brother Rick

    Looking forward to church tonight.

    1. BroMatt

      Me too.

  10. Brother Rick

    Happy to be here.

  11. Brother Rick

    Just had an awesome breakfast!

  12. Brother Rick

    It sincerely grieves me to have to say this but my time on this forum has pretty much come to an end. My added responsibilities at home and work prevent me from being a regular here anymore. You all have been a blessing to me and I hope that I was the same to you, even when we were kabitizing. :-) Thanks for everything. I'll still pop in every once in awhile, but not anything like before.

    1. John81

      You will be missed Rick. Do stop by when you have the opportunity.

      Thanks brother.

    4. Crushmaster

      Shucks. :-(

      God bless you, brother. Guess I still might see you some on Facebook. :-D

    5. Brother Rick

      Yeah, it's a bummer. I'd rather say goodbye than just drop off without saying anything.

    6. Miss Linda

      I'm so sorry to hear this, but I also admire so very much your commitment to your priorities. I do hope you will pop in occasionally to say hello. May God richly bless you and your family.

    7. HappyChristian

      Aw, Rick! That's not good news...but I do understand. We'll miss you. Come by when you can.

    8. Bro Jim

      Glad to meet you Bro. see around and for sure on the other side.

    9. BroMatt

      Brother Rick, pop in every now and then to say hi.

    There's no hope for my children to grow up in the America I grew up in, because it already isn't the America I grew up in.

  16. Brother Rick

    I just wanted to say that I really like your wife's recordings. Very beautiful and professional :)

  17. Brother Rick

    It snowed here last night. That's not weird at all.....

    In an effort to break the bestselling top 25 for Prophecy/ Eschatology, Roadmap Through Revelation is 99 cents an eBook for a limited time. Click this link: http://www.amazon.com/Roadmap-Through-Revelation-ebook/dp/B004LZ5334/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1304006304&sr=8-1

    1. Brother Rick

      It's a good book; it's in the top 8 in customer reviews. I'm really happy to be able to price it so low and I'm sure it can be a help to anyone who wants to better understand the end times from a futurist standpoint.

  19. Brother Rick

    Thank God for the Bible, and for the NRA....

  20. Brother Rick

    Had an amazing breakfast... now I'm sleepy.

  21. Brother Rick

    I hate multi-level marketing! No, I'm not going to buy your herbal orange scented energy juice mix! No, I don't want to become a millionaire selling it either!

    1. Bro Jim

      But you can become a millionaire too, just bring on 3 and they bring on 3, and and and...

    Think the KJB is too hard to read and understand? My 5 year old daughter reads from the KJB in the morning at breakfast.

    1. BroMatt

      Now stop it. You are busting the anti-KJV excuses. lol

    2. nucreature

      The best Bible ever! God-blessed, God-preserved. No matter how much or how many revisions, the KJV will always be available. God told us that his Word would last forever.

    3. Brother Rick

      Sorry brother Matt.

      Of course, my five year old also is working on her associates degree from MIT as well.

    4. HappyChristian

      Heehee - what is her MIT? Mother-in-Training? =)

    5. Brother Rick

      Well, she does have two little sisters so she is being continually reminded that she is "not the mommy." :)

    6. Blessed Christian wife 08

      in 05 I was new to the KJB It took me a month to read it with no troubles.

    7. Brother Rick

      Good jOB - see, not too hard, is it? :-)
