Holy Matrimony: Now That We’re Married
The 21st century has ushered in some extreme, strange, and disturbing beliefs about marriage. We’re living in a day and time where the definition and purpose of marriage is being challenged, and in some areas of our country changed to meet the desires of our society.

Laws have been passed in some states that sanction same sex marriage, men marrying men, and women marrying women. Men and women marrying animals may be just around the corner, and if we’re not careful, we may see laws on the books that sanction and encourage this as well, particularly if the animal will be entitled to the medical or insurance benefits of its spouse. You may say this will never happen. Well, we’re also living in a time where public display of the Ten Commandments is being challenged.

It seems our society doesn’t want to be faced with or reminded of what God has said and established for us to have an orderly society. It’s almost as though what we want is for every man to be able to do what he feels is right in his own heart. We’ve been there before. Marriage is under attack from the outside as well as the inside. Husbands and wives are trying to manage marriage, while society is trying to re-define and re-shape marriage at the same time. We’ve been blinded by the enemy, unable to see the spiritual warfare launched on the marriage which is wounding families, businesses, and the church, resulting in serious casualties. However, all is not lost if we look to God’s Word, embrace His principles, and apply them to our marriage and daily living. He has already said a number of things pertaining to both.

Each marriage is different. But I know a lasting GREAT marriage is possible! What makes a good marriage is mutual love, respect and commitment! Holy Matrimony will give you some things to think about, “Now that You Are Married”. It addresses many of the current issues facing married couples today, such as: Who’s Idea was marriage? Submission, Listening to one another, Marital responsibilities Sex and Intimacy,When you’ve been married before as well as The down side of marriage. Blessings!

Created In God’s Image

Until now, most of the training in human behavior that has been available to the Christian community has been secular and developed by teachers and writers who clearly believe in evolution. “Created In God’s Image” is a course that has been developed upon the belief in Creation. It is a biblically based class which will allow you to understand:

•Why you do the very things you do not want to do
•What causes your inner conflicts
•What causes your conflicts with others
•What your needs are as a unique creation of God

Understanding who God created you to be will help you live a victorious Christian life. You will understand your weaknesses and learn how to surrender them to the Lord and, with His help, learn how to develop your strengths. Paul’s question was not, “HOW am I behaving?” It was, “WHY am I behaving this way?” This course will help you to understand why people do the things they do.

In Hosea 4:6 it says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Having this knowledge will not only draw you closer to the Lord Jesus Christ it will help you in your relationships with family members, friends and co-workers. This course will bless you and change your life.

This course is suited for individual and small group studies.

Creation Therapy

Creation Therapy is a method of biblical counseling offered through course instruction to groups and individuals. It is a counseling model that focuses on enabling one to better understand oneself and the responsibility to establish a vertical relationship with God. It is based on Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created…” and Psalms 139:13-14, “For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Creation Therapy is a new therapeutic approach to counseling that deals with the inner man rather than outer manifestations and problems. It is based on the belief that man is a unique being rather than the result of an evolutionary process. This method was developed over a period of seven years of research involving 5,000 individuals seeking help for their problems, by Richard Gene Arno PH.D. Conclusions based on this research are that Creation Therapy is over 93% successful when administered by a trained and qualified counselor.

•A successful five step method for counseling those who come to you for help
•What causes relationship conflicts and how to resolve them
•Conflict resolution skills which focus on the word of God and His principles for emotional and spiritual healing
•The secrets of human behavior and how God’s wonderful plan works when it is understood and applied
•Qualify to administer the Temperament Analysis Profile which identifies an individual’s inborn temperament rather than their behavior. This helps the counselor in identifying the core problems and aids the counselee in problem resolution.

Creation Therapy is based on the theory of temperament. Temperament is the inborn part of man that determines how he reacts to people, places and things. In short it is how people interact with their environment and the world around them. It teaches that this temperament is placed within us by God, while in our mother’s womb, and that it will remain with us throughout our lives. Each individual has temperament needs of varying degrees. Our temperament is the determining factor in how well we handle the stresses and pressures of life. Creation Therapy identifies the temperament needs in the counselee and helps them to find a balance in order to relieve the inner stress. They will develop a willingness to surrender the ungodly ways they have been accustomed to using to meet temperament needs and replace them with methods in accordance with God’s word. They will learn to find peace within themselves, within their environment and with the Lord. We know that God is the only solution for all of our problems. Creation Therapy is a viable tool which allows counselors to emphasize the importance of yielding to God’s will and to discover His purpose for our existence. It teaches how to draw nearer to God, how to submit to His will and allow the Holy Spirit to become our constant guide and how to listen and recognize God’s voice. We invite you to discover this biblical based method of counseling and aid your counselee’s in discovering God’s will for their lives.

The textbook is approximately 325 pages in length. It provides an in-depth background of the theory of temperament as well as the historical, scientific and biblical basis for this theory.
