I am very curious about Proverbs 31. In the church world there are many teachings about what the “Proverbs 31” women is and isn’t. I heard once that it is a blessing that a husband would speak over his new bride. To those who believe she is an example of who we are to be...

In-Law Problems

I’ve been married 2 years to my husband, my first marriage, his 3rd. I am having a hard time dealing with my in-laws and a brother-in-law. My husband does not defend me when they are rude/disrespectful to me. We had a fight over it and he doesn’t want to speak about it. I am so...

Women Not Wearing Pants

I would like to get your take on Deuteronomy 22:5, where the bible states for a woman not to wear men’s clothing and a man should not wear women’s clothing. The church I attend states that women should not wear pants, seeing that it is men’s apparel, and vice versa. We teach that women should...

We’re in the Army Now

Should Christians volunteer to serve in the military here in the USA? Is there any basis in the Word of God telling us we should protect our families and homeland? I think in Israel they have a draft and everyone serves their country in some way. Are there examples in the Word that would guide...

Must You Talk about Politics?

I found you and your teachings/explanation of biblical messages more than a decade ago. I looked forward to finding Thought Tools in my inbox because I knew I would learn something new, or relearn something old from a new, informative vantage point – as that was your expertise. As you and Mrs. Lapin seemed to...

Balancing My Life – With My Wife

Listening to the podcast of being one’s authentic self, a question arises that is too often ignored and probably of the most important to consider in marriage.

Arguing with God

The instances where men argue with God concern me. If God knows and designs all outcomes, why does the Bible use the language of “arguing”? Is it possible to actually change God’s mind?
