Talk about equality is usually explained like this: “Women are the same in a lot of ways as men, and they’ve been left out and discriminated against. Women deserve to be in the same spaces as men—politically, economically, socially—and share the same rights. Men and women are equal.” Is this true? Are men and women equal?

In order to win the battle you NEED the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to die to yourself and submit to male authority. You have to die to yourself!

In moments of clarity, can we actually conceive telling God, “I see your way, but mine is better.” We would like to say “no,” but the truth is we do this often. We do it at work, in relationships, and even when it comes to how we approach spiritual things. If we seek to honor God, we must remember what he has told us, “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts’” (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Many people think of the kingdom of God as heaven or as the church. However, the kingdom of God is not an actual physical place. A working definition of God’s kingdom from a biblical perspective can be seen as God’s universal reign as Creator and Christ’s exhaustive work as Redeemer.

I was in my 20’s, I had this crazy season of God asking me to give up things in my life. It started with TV… I felt like God was asking me to give it up, it sucked. Then I felt like he asked me to give up my music, this one really sucked and it took me a while to do it.
It has been a year of disbelief and mental exhaustion for Ms Cheung. She could not have imagined what her hometown would go through – and the many masks she would have to wear. Like many in the city – on all sides of the argument – her fear for the future is real and raw.
The word wisdom here is ‘phronesis’, which means a mindset. A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to situations and his interpretation of those situations. It’s also known as prudence or practical wisdom. The believer is to mature to a level where he now has a mental attitude that influences his actions in any given situation.
In fact, the feelings caused by romantic love can be so strong, they can convince people to stay in relationships that are unhealthy, unfulfilling and ultimately unhappy — whether they realize it or not. When one partner feels that the other isn’t fulfilling a requirement, Wadley says, it’s important to communicate that. If that person’s partner isn’t willing to try harder to fulfill that need, it’s probably time to move on, she says.
