In-Law Troubles

Q.    Help! My mother-in-law is driving me crazy. When she visits, she tells me how to run my house; nothing ever satisfies her. It’s really starting to wear me down. What can I do? A. This is a difficult situation, but you can, and should, take some steps to address it. Since this is not only an issue between you and her, but also actually a couple issue, your husband, as head of your home, will need to protect you…

Frustration in Marriage

Q.    My spouse doesn’t share my passion for spiritual things. How can I deal with my frustration and sadness? A.   In a Marriage Manual the first chapter could be, “You Can’t Change Another Person.” Many could have avoided a lot of frustration and strife in their Marriage if they’d realised from the start that their partner wasn’t likely to be any closer to their design after ten years of marriage than on their Wedding Day. Instead of feeling they’d been deceived,…

Falling Out of Love

Q. I’m falling out of love with my husband (and he with me), and I’m tempted to have an affair. What would be the harm? A. If you’re not serious about your relationship with God, then go ahead and do as you please. Of course, there will be consequences – possibly eternal! That’s precisely Satan’s plan for, and the world’s attitude towards, God’s Institution of Marriage. However, if you’re a woman of integrity, and have given your life to the…

Divorcees in Church

Q.   What scope is there for a divorced woman in the Body of Christ? A.   Regular Seminars on The Woman’s Place in the Body of Christ are run at Golden Harvest; get to one of these anointed and inspiring weekends! Irrespective of her past, the Elders will care for any woman coming into the Body of Christ. Observing her sincere and humble walk with the Lord they will guide her, mostly through her husband, into serving the Lord and her blessed role…

A Distant Husband

Q.    My husband has become distant. How can I draw closer? A.   When a spouse is distant the partner often withdraws, creating an even bigger gap. Or else the partner may pester the spouse to open up and cause annoyance or even anger. There is a reason for the distance; allow him to come to terms with it and tell you about it. Tell him that you know he is going through a difficulty of one kind or another and that…

Arguments in Marriage

Q.   Arguments in Marriage are OK, and even beneficial. Why all this fuss about living in harmony? A.   Anger, frustration and depression, so often found in Marriages, relate to not getting one’s own way. This leads in turn to domination of one party over the other with attendant abuse and hurt, physical and psychological, both resulting in spiritual damage. In Eph 4:26 God’s Word requires us to settle these issues right away, especially in Marriage. He has no support for sustained or…

Is Abortion Wrong?

Q.   What’s wrong with abortion? Surely a woman has a right over her own body? A.   Christians haven’t adopted an anti-abortion stance because they have worked out what’s good for humanity; they believe and practice what God says about things. His Word declares, For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb – Ps 139:13. The Bible tells plainly that life is sacred to God. He creates life at the moment of conception and only He has…

A Healthy Marriage

Q.    What does a healthy, successful Marriage look like? A.   In Marriage, the parties are unique, and their relationship with the Lord is unique. It’s therefore impossible to give a universal picture of a good Marriage. Basic principles for Marriage are found in God’s Word and it really goes without saying that a couple should live in the Word to have God’s daily input in their lives. Another way is to examine the relationship God desires for the Bride of Christ…
