When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
-Matthew 9:36, NLT
This website is a complete labor of love. To date, I have lost and not made money off of writing this blog.
In many ways, I give back to the Lord by writing this blog and continuing the various conversations it inspires. The gift of my time, treasure, and heart are gifts I gladly and freely give unto the Lord. Care of this beleaguered flock is dear to me as I stood in their midst not all that long ago.
I continue writing and sharing about adultery and divorce because the voices out there are confusing for the faithful spouses and others alike. They more often than not promote lies–like “The Shared Responsibility Lie.” Or they push for false hope as divorce is never considered a real option for a Christian spouse in some circles.
One would think the message of “Taking Adultery Seriously” is a rather benign stance for a Christian pastor. However, I have found over the years writing this blog that standing firmly on this Ten Commandment prohibition ruffles feathers within the Christian community.
An evangelical pastor is free to rail over how awful the “climbing” divorce rate is, but he dare not suggest something–like adultery–is worse than avoiding “divorce.” “Intact” marriages continue to be treated as more valuable in practice than godliness and righteousness.
My goal is to continue this blog to continue to change the conversation. Plenty of “Christian” resources exist out there shaming faithful spouses for considering or actually divorcing a cheater. This blog is not one of them.
The reality is God would prefer to save souls as opposed to a farce of an “intact” marriage (see Jeremiah 3:8).
And I know this blog has been a lifeline to faithful spouses. I read comments regularly to that effect. That encourages me to keep on writing as it helps to know the blog is having a positive impact in this dark, dark world.
A book is still in the hopper.
And I may expand to doing some short videos to make this material accessible to an even broader audience.
