Her Weakness or Sin?

medium_god-created-man-male-and-female-what-does-it-mean-to-be-complementarianI think I have pretty much written enough about Adam the man. But I need to say some more concerning the woman.

To recap briefly, the Bible, as previously stated, gives us 11 scripture verses revealing Adam’s sin and culpability concerning the ‘fall’ account of Genesis contrasted with the total of 3 scripture verses concerning the woman’s fall into sin, via deception. Though scripture doesn’t explicitly say Adam was a part of the deception in her eating of the fruit (verses clearly identify the serpent as deceiving her) there is room to wonder with his involvement because of:

  1. the text within the Genesis account indicating all was not well with Adam’s heart toward God (Gen 2:18).
  2. her incomplete version of God’s command as given by him.

A Foot in the Door…

n-polygamy-628x314When posting ‘A Normal Family?’ yesterday, I was in shock more or less for this to be on national TV here in NZ, utterly flabbergasted as it seemed so wrong on so many levels!! The following night NZ Hub’s –Story visited and filmed the family in situ. It continues to generate a lot of heated discussion on their Facebook page, with some good comments for victim support present. Public shock factor has definitely made it a winner for Story.

An awful sense of a door having just been opened… beginning the machination of public acceptance…  Continue reading

A ‘Normal’ New Zealand Family?

Last night on New Zealand Television, News Hub-Story presenters Heather du Plessis-Allen and Duncan Garner interviewed an Auckland couple. Pakistan immigrant Yasir Mohib and one of his two New Zealand born wives Fatimah Fazilet Sheikh were interviewed concerning his alleged domestic abuse involving the use of a hammer. The reason it became public news is because he was let off without conviction by a district court judge last year, who is currently being investigated because of other similar decisions. The High Court has recently overturned her decision concerning him. Continue reading

Ephesians 5:33

marketing-automation-and-reputation-managementIt seems for a while now that I’m always late, not quite up with the play, one step behind so to speak. Yesterday for example, September 19, 2016 was a good day to write a post, as it was ‘Suffrage’ day – the day to remember and celebrate when New Zealand women gained the right to vote in 1893! This is celebrated all the more here in New Zealand, as we were the first self-governing country in the world to extend this right to all women! Pat on the back for NZ and all other countries who have done likewise, unfortunately voting for women has still some way to go in this world and we need to remember and pray for those whose rights of equality are withheld by their countries tradition and rule.

Yesterday, however, was just one of two days that would have been good to have marked with a post. As it happens Sunday the 18th of September was also Continue reading
