  1. Wow….really disappointed in the rant about mega churches & money. No longer sounds like a conversation with thoughts & questions, rather the very thing that the pub rules caution others against – “ignorance and obnoxiousness.” How can one who has never been the leader of a mega church, walked in their shoes or felt the pain of the burden they carry, make a sweeping critique with an opinion and some #’s? Sounds like unresolved anger about something, unfortunately slammed on someone with whom is different than you. That’s not conversation. That’s imposing your views on others. Disappointing – this doesn’t carry out the vision of this blog.

    • Hey Gaye,

      The reason we turn the comments off is so that readers can get both sides of the issue at hand. I encourage you to wait until tomorrow’s post and then join the conversation on Wednesday before jumping to any conclusions. Thank you.

  2. Something has been on my mind a lot lately because of where my husband and I are on our Christian journeys… the concept of ‘Unevenly Yolked’.

    This ‘unevenly yolked’ crap can suck at times.The bible says don’t do it…I get it. However… I met my husband at a time in my life when I doubted the very existence of God. Not that he doesn’t beleive…..he says he does. He goes to church with me (on his own accord…and I do mean that.. I don’t ‘drag him’) but I sense still that he is there for my benefit. I am growing closer and closer to God sense he so adamantly pulled me back to him a littl over a year ago. I still have to maintain a happy medium in my home to prevent ‘freaking him out’ and turning him off to the whole ‘church thing’. I am rambling, yes.. but needed to lay down the framwork.

    Mainly what I am getting at is… the bible says ‘don’t be unevenly yolked’.. BUT.. what does it say about other unique situations such as when two become ‘yolked’ when one is in a dormant phase in their life in regards to their relationship with God and the other just doesn’t have that relationship period or never did. It’s tough enough that the husband is intended to be the spiritual leader in the family and the wife submissive (lets totally not go there on this one…), but for the wife to have the relationship with God and the husband to be the tag along… it makes it difficult at times. The woman is forced into the spiritual leader role. Ever tried to be a ‘submissive leader’?? I hope the bible has some instructions I have yet to stumble upon.

    Hope to see this as a topic one of these days. Keep up the great work you guys. It makes for interesting reads.

    • Hey Deanna,

      Welcome to NI. And good question for thought. Fortunately, the Bible does have an answer for you.

      In his letter of 1 Corinthians, Paul talks a lot about marriage and relationships. Look at what he says in the midst of that conversation in 1 Corinthians 7:12-15,

      “To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace. For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?”

      Now, we’re not 100 percent sure by what Paul means by some of these things, but in your situation, you came back to faith after you got married. God essentially says you’re OK. Keep at it. Yes, it is tough, but who knows what will happen with your influence as you become more like Jesus? Keep becoming like Jesus, keep praying for him, and pray for chances to talk with him about it.

      Hope this helps. Holla back if you’ve got more questions.

  3. Dear Sir / Madam

    could you kindly convey the contact details of Mr Andrew Bowen or could you kindly pass on mine and ask him if he could kindly contact me…I read an article of his on sikhchic.com and was extremely impressed at his knowledge of Sikhism.

    Yours Faithfully
