The Latest From Robert's Blog

  • A Pornography Addict Comes Clean


    Last week we discussed the ultimate uselessness of trying to abstain from pornography by any system, technique or method that involves my effort to obey God's demand to be holy as He is holy. Holiness cannot ever come by trying to keep the law, for even if I am successful in somehow avoiding pornography by white-knuckling it, the subtle sin of pride that invariably comes from having done so spoils the righteousness brew I am trying so desperately to concoct. No, the only way to true freedom is to recognize my utter helplessness, embrace it and repent, knowing and believing God loves me unconditionally, forgives me completely and is at work in my heart performing His perfect will. While I was in junior high school, a neighbor boy took my up to the attic in his house and showed my his...


  • Fighting Pornography with a Useless Weapon


    Christians recognize that pornography represents the wicked sin of idolatry, and, as such, it negatively affects the families of all who are involved in it. Sermons are preached against it, castigating those who are trapped by it, and then suggesting all manner of methods to "flee the lusts of the flesh." These include such schemes as installing guards that shut down computers when keywords are typed and "accountability groups" to make the offender "'fess up." These are offered with the hope that they will somehow dissuade involvement in what is a universal and very destructive sin. Even though the preacher may deliver the sermon with true humility, confessing his own personal struggles, these methods do not address the root issue and will achieve only temporary, white-knuckle success. The...


  • Frustration, Disappointment and Discouragement - The Fingerprints of God


    Jill and I are slowly getting settled in a beautiful apartment in Spokane after being homeowners for 45 years. It has been painful for us in many ways, For example, getting set up with a new computer system (What in the world does "in the cloud" mean?) has been particularly difficult. I just realized last week that my new set-up was not allowing me to receive your e-mails using my robert@gospelparenting account, only my personal gmail account. I missed three months of correspondence, including the responses to my newsletters and blog postings. The glitch was remedied and I immediately received the reader responses that some of you sent during that time. I sincerely apologize, and your comments have been duly posted on the blog, albeit up to three months late. Your responses were very...


  • Failure and Sin--the Only Path to True Ministry


    The reaction by many to the pastor referenced in last week's newsletter, who stepped down from leadership in his church due to an affair, has been to banish him to Siberia. "His effective ministry is over due to this terrible screw-up. He has disqualified himself," they probably are reasoning. "Let's move on to the next gifted communicator." This response is most likely to be found among those who may not agree with this pastor's emphasis on the unconditional grace of God that covers, forgives and does away with all sin, including adultery. In actuality, this pastor's ministry may now be taking a powerful, quantum leap forward! How so? The Bible is very clear about two important truths:1) Genuine righteousness only comes by faith in the cross and what happened there, not by obedience to the...


  • Finding Hope in the Midst of Serious Family Trouble


    Years ago, as a high school basketball coach, I met with the father of a very talented sophomore who had a bright future as a player--if he could work his way free from the trap of drugs and alcohol into which he had fallen. I was amazed at the nonchalant attitude with which this father discussed the situation. It was as if he was a disinterested bystander, analyzing a situation in which he had no personal interest at all. I realized that by disconnecting himself personally from the situation, in his own mind he was able to absolve himself of any responsibility for his son's problems. I recognize this desire in my own life--to evade responsibility for failure if at all possible. I am constantly looking for back doors through which I can make my exit when blame is apportioned. "It's not...

People are Saying

I know of no other template for the family where the affirmative proof is seen in the children of the writer and in the children of others who follow this Biblical model. What a tremendous blessing this book has been, and continues to be for us.
