Teaching The Word Boldly

When I was in high school, long ago, I attended John MacArthur's church once in awhile.  I loved how he methodically went through the Bible, teaching it verse by verse.  I have recently listened to him teach Ephesians 5 and Titus 2.  I am going to share some things he said that I feel are profound for women today ~

Even if you get a job to put your children in a Christian school, it is a big mistake.  Better to stay home and raise your children to be godly than to pass it on to someone else.

Women who work outside the home have an exponential number of marital affairs when compared with women who are in the home because of exposure and temptation plus they find themselves not being subject to their husbands but somebody else's husband.

A woman doesn't impact the world by getting a briefcase and going downtown, she impacts the world by raising a godly generation of men and women.

The home is where a woman provides the expression of love for her husband and children where she leads and guides and raises a godly generation protected and secure from other men and potentially wicked relationships and abuse. 

You can eliminate the stale air of marriage but not with the pumps of human psychology, only when you fill your life with the living water, the Spirit of God, and divine Truth.

If you have a Spirit-filled, obedient, praising, worshiping, thankful, submissive heart, you have the stuff that will make a wonderful family, a wonderful home, a wonderful marriage, and a wonderful life.

When wives come to me and tell me they no longer love their husbands, I tell them, "Repent!  Confess that sin immediately.  Fast and pray and ask God to show you the path of righteousness to loving your husband."  Not to love your husband is a sin since it is commanded by God to love him.

If you would love to get some no-nonsense, not tickling the ears type of sermons, begin listening to him HERE.  If you know of other pastors that teach the Word boldly and unashamedly, tell us in the comment section.  Thank you!

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; 
but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, 
having itching ears; And they shall turn away 
their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:3,4
