I am willing to abide a short man, a poor man, an unattractive man, even a man who is not a Texan (Lord, forgive me).However, I cannot give my consent to a man who is not a follower of Christ.Thus, reading this book should drive young women to their knees as they plead with God to make a man like this and bring him across their path.And they can plead boldly, knowing it’s their heavenly Father that they’re praying to.For all my agreement with this book, I almost didn’t stick around long enough to appreciate it. Sadly, whether for reasons of divorce, different faiths, geographic distance or mere disinterest, many, many singles who hope to marry well are going it alone. At first glance, I suspect they’ll share sentiments similar to R.who wrote me to say: One of these days someone’s going to write a book about how to do this “courtship” thing when your dad isn’t Christian.The other traits include being prepared to lead (and lead like Christ), being committed to children, and the four P’s: He must be a Protector, Provider, Prophet and Priest.

Anyone who denies the exclusivity of the gospel of Jesus Christ is a false teacher who distorts the gospel. If Paul, or even an angel, preaches a different gospel, he is to be damned. Only knowing what the passage means from the original author to the original audience makes any difference. No holding back the Bible from the common man – the Bible is written in clear language. The pastor needs to both feed the sheep and ward off the wolves. The sufficiency of scripture: 1) scripture contains all we need for all matters of faith and doctrine. Produced by the creative breath of the almighty creator.
The Galatians were turning away from the gospel of Jesus Christ to a different (heterous – of a different kind) gospel. Paul uses an extreme hypothetical example of distortion of the gospel.
