Church, Body of Christ II

November 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Follow the lead of one another because of your respect for Christ.

Wives, follow the lead of your husbands as you follow the Lord. The husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the church. The church is Christ’s body. He is its Savior. The church follows the lead of Christ. In the same way, wives should follow the lead of their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives. Love them just as Christ loved the church. He gave himself up for her. He did it to make her holy. He made her clean by washing her with water and the word. He did it to bring her to himself as a brightly shining church. He wants a church that has no stain or wrinkle or any other flaw. He wants a church that is holy and without blame.

In the same way, husbands should love their wives. They should love them as they love their own bodies. Any man who loves his wife loves himself. After all, people have never hated their own bodies. Instead, they feed and care for their bodies. And that is what Christ does for the church. We are parts of his body.

Scripture says, “That’s why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two will become one.” (Genesis 2:24) That is a deep mystery. But I’m talking about Christ and the church.

A husband also must love his wife. He must love her just as he loves himself. And a wife must respect her husband (Ephesians 5:21-33, NIrV)

History of Philosophy without any gaps Podcast

This podcast by professor Peter Adamson helped get me through hours of rest after my recent surgery.

It will demand many hours of your time, and the content is challenging at times, but well worth the effort.

I enjoyed my philosophy classes with David Basinger, but there wasn’t enough time to explore the huge number of philosophers explored in this comprehensive series.

It by Stephen King

Eeeek! That was a terrifying story!

I found it fascinating and fast-paced until the last couple of chapters.

Not so thrilled with the ending, but worth the time.

Only took me 28 years to get around to reading this horror classic.
