• The Gift of God

    22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants of God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:22-23 - - - in the Holy Bible)
  • Our Justification

    20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
    22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
    23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
    24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus Christ our Lord from the dead;
    25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. (Romans 4:20-25 - - - in the Holy Bible)

    LIFE ADVICE FOR AMERICAN MEN


    By Clarence William Page


    Life in the United States of America has suffered drastic changes. Some of those changes are good and some are bad. On the positive side, it appears that more people are gaining the opportunity to participate in what has been billed as "The American Dream". The "dream" says that anyone can (by working hard) make it in America. That is probably a very optimistic appraisal of the American opportunity but many who suffered in other countries have indeed prospered in the United States of America. The American economy has gone through much change. The agrarian South and Midwest in which small farms once thrived are relics of the past. Since the mid 1950's the trend has been toward mega-mechanized agricultural industries. Many Americans that once were able to earn monies working with their hands in such crops as cotton, bean, corn, etc. are no longer able to do so. Mechanization has monopolized farm "work" and human labor is no longer the premium commodity it once was. The foregoing is just a glance at some of the changes that have affected people who depend on America's agricultural economy. Changes just as drastic and disturbing have also occurred in America's social and cultural arenas.

    The roles of men and women have been seriously impacted by a number of events, movements and philosophical shifts. In my view, the American man has been weakened by the philosophical paradigm which seeks to deny any difference in the gender of human beings. On the one hand, it appears that in order to prove the female "equally strong" the American male had to be weakened. I think this is a tragedy. I have noticed the weaknesses many American men now display when confronted by women. I know of very few American homes that are not now being "ruled" by women. That is a tragedy. God gave the rule to the man. Atheistic philosophies that have been allowed to seep into the American family have sought to negate God's plan for the family and substitute a "better" one. Women have learned that they can "get their way" and they are doing it. I even experienced this situation in my own home. I had to consciously exert my manhood and refuse to be weakened. It meant withdrawing from the controlling influence of my wife and being willing to risk the entire marriage in order to maintain the position God intended for me to occupy. (I am careful to not be evil or abusive but I am also very very careful to make sure I do not allow my wife to control me [that is not God's will]). Being a Christian minister I have an advantage: I am commanded to be kind and loving. However, I am very concerned about many American men who do not nave the advantage of being a Christian minister. I am concerned that many of them will attempt to assert their manhood in ways that will harm their wives and get them (the men) in trouble. (That is one to the reasons I wanted to write this article.)

    About Abraham, God said the following: "For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him." (Genesis 18:19 [The Holy Bible]). It is very clear from Holy Scripture that God gave man the rule. Contemporary American society no longer believes that. They have decided to do "their own thing" and forget God. That sounds unbelievable but the laws and court decisions of the past forty years soundly prove this point of view. Atheism has gained a foothold in America and many in the "Christian" church seem ignorant to atheism's damning agenda. So, the movement away from God's plan for the family continues to wreak havoc in America and in the American family. The answer to reversing this course lies in the men of America but so many of America's "men" have been captured by the venomous enemy philosophy that it is unlikely that they will ever again be free. Captured and weakened, they go on like zombies, accepting the loss of manhood and seeking to avoid the conflict that being a real man can bring.

    There is a phrase among us which says to young men, "be a man like your papa, not a man like your mama". That phrase used to mean something. I'm afraid that in the United States of America that phrase no longer means what it used to mean. Somehow, in America, being a "man like your papa" could mean something similar to being a "man like your mama". That is truly tragic. What is even more tragic is the fact that many of the women who are "feminizing" their sons (and their husbands [though the husband is at fault in allowing it]) seem to care less. They (the mothers) are so caught up in the women's' movement (and blinded thereby) that they are willing to weaken their own sons and husbands in order to be "equal".

    It appears to me (from Holy Scripture) that God did not intend for men and women to be "equal". No, God had a better idea: Women were to be put on a pedestal. Here is part of what God says: "Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered" (I Peter 3:7 [The Holy Bible]) This leads me to believe that God intends that women be treated with special care. He has given them special qualities which men do not have. Men are to respect them for who and what they are and who and what God made them to be. They are not ever to be abused. They are to be delicately cared for. That is God's plan, God's intention and it is best.

    The problem (or question) is this: How does a man treat a woman the way God wants him to treat her when she has usurped the position God has given man and sought to establish a paradigm that God never meant to exist? Well, men in different eras have dealt with this question in different ways. In earlier centuries, men forcefully (physically) made women remain in their proper roles. One of the problems that came out of that method was abuse. Many men apparently abused the women with whom them interacted. Since men controlled the societies nothing much was done about such abuse. (However, during the last five years I have come across accounts of men who abused their women and were physically "straightened out" by groups of men who lived in the community). However, such vigilantism should not be allowed to operate. The rule of law should have been used to handle such situations.

    Ah, "the rule of law". Well, that is just what is happening now, isn't it? The law takes care of abusive men. Well, not exactly. What the "law" does, (in many instances} is deny the man the latitude needed to rule his home. As a matter of fact, almost anything can be cited as being "abusive". Therefore, weak men simply acquiesce rather than carry out their manly ruling elder responsibilities. In other words, they have chosen to be "men like their mamas". Some men have sought to exert themselves and have ended up in jail, divorced, losing the greater part of their possessions and paying alimony. So, the American man seems to be caught between a rock and a hard place. What does he do?

    I have sought the leadership of God. I make every effort to yield my life to God, study, learn and obey His word, take heed to myself, show love, be slow to become angry, and pray daily. By maintaining the Godly perspective I have been able to determine God's will for me and elicit his guidance and active help. I tell my wife what God wants us to do and I do it. If she chooses otherwise that is between her and God. I never hit her. I never physically abuse her. However, whenever she wants to do something that I believe God does not want us to do, I refuse to cooperate. I never allow her to lead me into sin. If she decides to sin I tell her that it is sin. I also tell God that I have told her the way of God. I also ask God to not hold against me the sin(s) of my wife. I do not believe that God requires me to physically restrain my wife from the sins she decides to willfully walk into. There are times when our wives will choose the wrong way even when they know the right way. (Remember Lot's wife. [Genesis 19:26] {The Holy Bible}] ). I am careful to pray often and ask God to help my wife choose His way rather than the way of the world.

    Seeing that atheism has taken hold in America, I urge every American male to get to know Jesus Christ. In my view, that is the very best way to reclaim your manhood and know what you should do. Also, by following the commandments of Jesus Christ you have the best possible chance of staying out of jail while you "fight" for your manhood. With Jesus, the struggle becomes just another element of the Christian life. Being out of Christ will probably get you into trouble. Being in Christ could possibly keep you out of trouble.

    Many of you are truly troubled. Your burdens are heavy and you don't know what to do. You know your manhood rights have been usurped and you are acting out your frustrations by having extramarital affairs (committing adultery), drinking intoxicating liquors, using harmful drugs, staying away from home ("hanging out"), gambling, and/or engaging in other harmful activities. It might help to remember the following words of Jesus: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 [The Holy Bible] ).

    Getting your wife Saved is also a major step toward repairing the situation. Women who are truly Saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost will gladly obey the word of God. Sanctification will make your wife a joy to behold. Sanctification will make you a joy to behold.

  • The Day Charles Spurgeon was Saved



    22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:22 - - - in the Holy Bible)


    It was on a very snowy January 6, 1850 that Charles Spurgeon, cold and miserable, stumbled into a small church on Artillery Street, Newtown, Colchester (Essex) in Britain. It was so snowy until the preacher did not make it to church; rather, a seemingly almost illiterate stand-in "non-preacher" filled in and read and spoke from Isaiah 45:22.

    Charles Spurgeon was Saved that day.

    Charles Spurgeon became a renowned Christian minister.
