The Kingdom of God advances when women with years of experience applying the Word of God to every area of life and thought teach younger women how to love their husbands and children. This is what godly mentorship is all about. Listen as host Andrea Schwartz and her guest, Beth Bingaman, share their thoughts and advice to would-be mentors and those who would benefit from finding a mentor.
Gender is something that is determined by God and thus needs to be understood in terms of His law-word. While modern culture has now moved to the irrational position that individuals can fluidly gender-identify as they see fit, Christians need to realize what is at stake when this ground is ceded to the ungodly. The book of Genesis tells us that God created male and female. Throughout Scripture there are clear delineations between the roles of men and woman. Any assault on this doctrine undermines the entire Christian faith.
In this two- part Kingdom Driven Family Podcast discussion, Andrea Schwartz and Catherine Brown discuss gender roles from a Biblical perspective.
We are all products of our times. Although we like to think otherwise, unless we evaluate our practices and traditions from a Biblical perspective, we are likely to be using the methods of secular society and adapting to the ways of the world. We are expressly told in Scripture that although we are in the world, we are not to be of the world. In fact, Jesus’ prayer for us to the Father was: “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one” (John 17:15).
When it comes to parenting children, the prevalence of humanistic thinking in our day is more influenced and directed by the world of child psychology than it is by Scriptural mandates.

When people take God and His Word for granted, they minimize the effects of sin in their lives and the surrounding culture. Instead of recognizing that failing to obey God produces negative consequences, they instead “wait” for future judgment rather than recognize its present reality. I often say in my Biblical Law classes, “The judgment is in the sin.”
One of my students shared with me how she and her husband have incorporated biblical law into the life of their family, with this amusing story she sent to me in an email message: Continue reading
Christ came to earth to break the bonds of sin and death. All outside of Christ have Hell as their ultimate destination. What is Hell? How many think about it seriously, or even consider it is a real place?
The following is excerpted from the chapter entitled “Hell” in R.J. Rushdoony’s “Sermon on the Mount”.
To understand what hell is, therefore, we must see the meaning of Gehenna – [a trash dump]. A trash dump is the place of irrelevant and meaningless items. What cannot be used because it is useless is consigned to a refuse pile. Hell is thus the habitation of all who are determined to be useless to God. Whatever their opinion of themselves, if they are useless to God, they go into His cosmic trash pile. God’s righteousness or justice is the criterion of usefulness to God, and God’s righteousness is incarnate in His Son, Jesus Christ.
