Also, she is great at advising women to go to their husbands with their emotional needs and I wholeheartedly agree, but warns that spending too much time with women and getting close may result in you becoming a lesbian she didn't use that word, but she definitely alluded to it, I would get the direct quote but I threw the book away as soon as I was done. Jesus said that the world would know who we are by our love for each other, and he didn't seem at all worried that a deep love for fellow sisters or brothers would become something unnatural perverted.
There was some advice that was given that absolutely scared me. One was advising women who were feeling pain during intercourse to suck it up meet your husband's needs Any pain during what is a normal bodily function means that there is something wrong, not that you need to deny yourself, merrily pretend there is nothing wrong and get through it.
Another thing that bothered me is a woman was confessing that her husband was breaking into cars and having her stand guard. Debi's advice was to call the cops and turn him in How about confessing herself since she was helping? These would be biblical and godly instructions.
Another thing - and this is the last one, I promise - she instructs women to visit their husbands in jail who have molested their children There is a time for forgiveness, there is a time for confronting your offender, and yes he is their father, but this turned my stomach and it's in knots writing this. Making an innocent child visit and pretend everything is okay with the man who tarnished and stole their innocence Don't bad mouth the man, but don't bring him jailbait either.
And - okay, I do have one more - I grew tired of her using scare tactics to get the reader to do the right and in her mind "godly" thing by your husband. He will have an affair if you don't do this. He will leave you for someone else if you don't do that.
Created To Need A Help Meet: A Marriage Guide for Men by Michael Pearl
I love God, and I love my husband and I serve both out of reverence for God because it is love that drives me, it is joy, it is security in my faith and in my God.
I know he will take care of me and I desire Him above all else Having said all of this, I will say that I agree about serving, I agree we need to consider others before ourselves, and we especially need to consider our husbands above ourselves. But I will have to leave the rest.
My husband and I read this together, and he doesn't like it at all. He feels like women have been demoted and degraded to nothing when he believes his daughter and I to be glorious, wonderful, intelligent and worthy of godly advice. Women weren't created to be doormats - created for men, yes, but to complete them, not to be subservient - most of all created for God. Dan appreciates me most when I encourage him to think outside of himself, and he thanks me when I push him through laziness just like I appreciate his wisdom and insight and learn from his abandon and zest for life.
We were made for men because they are incomplete alone - they are perfectly capable of living by themselves and taking care of themselves, but what they need from us is REAL unconditional love, devotion, respect, honesty and to be and give what they cannot.
Hyles did not attack the book. Hyles did not attack Dr. Hyles did not attack the sinner. Jack Hyles so much as hint at a slander towards another person.Girl Defined vs. Gay Marriage
I am afraid for the popularity of these writings as they appear in some ways similar to the popularity of Dr. Lahaye's in his time.
Oh, and in case you weren't sure, I'm as likely to fall into this as anyone. So we blind ourselves, and like and accept what someone has written or said. And, sure enough, we become as dumb as a Do-Do bird to the truth trying to find it's way into our hearts. I did not say Michael Pearl did not write truth!

What I am, and will say is, God wrote it. Do you remember anything of what Tim Lahaye taught? When Michael Pearl is dead and forgotten you will still be here with your marriage and with a God who knows more than man. The decorations on the tree are beautiful, but the tree? I just don't know. I cannot find anywhere in my bible where it breaks down men and women into these three groups.

Help me if you can, but I'm just sayin. That's what the main body of the book said to me. Is that news to anyone?
Towards the latter part of the book Mr. Pearl delves into pornography. I have to wholeheartedly endorse what he's saying on this sin. Even after having put these things behind me many years ago it still brings shame and guilt. No matter how far behind I leave this, it is not far enough. I pay the price, not you.
