DOC CHRISTIAN’S MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP
“A wife of noble character who can find?
“She is worth far more than rubies
“Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.” Proverbs 31:10-11
Just watching the show: Marriage Boot Camp’s advertising ‘trailers’ is enough to make me emotionally and spiritually sick, so, I confess I’ve never viewed the show. I have read about their ‘so called’ experts that don’t hold a Marriage & Family Therapist license, and since biblical principles are seldom in view, I would encourage all Pilgrims and Deplorables to change the channel.
The bible teaches that the all mighty God and Creator made man and woman so he might have fellowship with mankind. He instituted the sacred ceremony of marriage so his creatures might have sexual pleasure and procreate so God’s mandate to multiple might be accomplished.
So, marriage is a Spiritual act; and any other type of marriage is a commitment on the altar of Baal.
When heathens set out to accomplish biblical outcomes, and they reject biblical truths, the end is predictable: band aide solutions for a sin-sick soul is like putting salve on Cancer.
The show embraces the Feminist agenda, which is an anathema to the one and only holy God who created the world The Bible doesn’t acknowledge Feminist Theology or any type of spiritual dynamic that places a woman in a position of authority above a man in marriage. Ephesians 5:21-ff
The Marriage Boot Camp ‘trailers’ demonstrate that the couples’ marriage troubles reek of ‘gutter speak’, by the men and women, and in each relationship there is an obvious ‘power-struggle’ in the relationship. For any biblically trained therapist, it is easy to spot that the women in the show are ardent Feminist…and the men have become indoctrinated Feminist men who chafe at the outcome, continuously, but are too weak to lead in the marriage.
From a ring-side seat, and for 54 years of wedded bliss, this old man has watched America disintegrate into a land of proud powerful women who have usurped man’s position in every place in our society, and men have been feminized to the point young boys’ have nearly given up on the idea of competing with girls for our country’s future greatness. If you doubt the veracity of my statement, pick up a pad and pen or use your phone notes, and for a week, chart the advertising from all types of media and note how many times a man is placed in a subservient role to the woman in any walk of life in our society. How many times is the man depicted as a buffoon or an incompetent man verses the girl or the woman? What messages do our schools teach our children about the role of a boy and a girl in life?
Today, every type of research that has been done about the near death-spiral of the institution of marriage in America brought about by the adoption of Feminist Theology, produces similar results: the Feminist women are unhappy in their marriage: they prefer European men/ and, Feminized men are more unhappy, and they too prefer European women. How can this be?
The Bible’s teachings provide the answer.
“Submit to one another out of reverence to Christ.
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as
Christ is head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior/ Now as the church submits to Christ, so also should wives submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing of the water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds it and cares for it, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of one body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh” This a profound mystery—but, I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you must love his wife as he loves himself, and his wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:21-33
Old Doc’s opinion about this teaching from the Holy Spirit: Pilgrims rejection of the Bible’s defined roles and marriage formula, and the acceptance of the Atheist, humanist anti-Bible, Feminist Theology has changed America into a country filled with socially, sexually, and religiously dissatisfied men and women; and their solutions transgress God’s Roles, Rules, and formula for a blissful, contented marriage relationship. This is why fifty percent of PILGRIM marriages fail!
If Pilgrims will just step back and gaze upon the plethora of solutions bandied about by humanist Philosophy and Psychology concerning the man and woman relationship, it is quite easy to detect the root cause of non-marital bliss: Women are to be the Nester and Nurturer, men the Provider and Protector. When a woman demands she usurp the man’s God given role in marriage, and the man is told what to do and when to do it…even how to do it, King Solomon wrote for the man: It was better to live on a corner of the roof of his house than with the constant dripping/nagging of his wife. Doc’s opinion, when we peek around the corner of this sages’ wisdom, he is teaching that men who are not respected in their own home, don’t care to be home. The Feminist Theology is not about biblical submission to a man’s leadership, but empowerment that strips the man of respect and dents his dignity and manhood, greatly.
The scripture also teaches the one thing a woman desires the most is to be loved and valued, and protected, but, when she creates an environment that usurps man’s spiritual obligation to his God, and his wife refuses to be in submission to that leading, her emotional needs don’t rise very far on his priority list. Women must never forget man’s greatest need is Respect.
The Bible teaches when man’s respect needs are met, and he realizes his Spiritual obligation to his God have been met, God’s command to love his wife as Christ loved the church is an easier thing to do. Many Pilgrim men do not understand the full measure and weight of this scripture. I do believe women do, but don’t communicate its intended meaning very well to their husbands’ Pilgrim men, this is God’s biblical command: To love your wife as Christ loved the church the man is to be a willing sacrificial lamb on her behalf. She is first, he is last; children are second, he is last I believe few women will kick against the goad if she has a husband that makes his decisions based upon what she needs and what would please her…first, right?
If a marriage contains a man and a woman that believes the world’s intellect possesses the correct answers about a marriage relationship rather than God, then the marriage is just a power struggle of selfish ends. My opinion, the Feminist Marriage Theology is a tool of the Devil because it demands a change in the God given roles for man and woman in a marriage. Equality, meaning equal value is never a question in a Godly marriage. But, that doesn’t mean it allows for a change in the biblical assigned roles of men and women in a Godly marriage.
“She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.” Proverbs 13-18
My interpretation, this is a perfect biblical picture and demonstration of a business woman, wife, and mother busy with life as she keeps her priorities biblically straight. Its model and biblical formula do not dismiss the ‘business woman using her gifts, talents, and acumen to run a successful business and a biblical home, plus a household for her husband and children.
Contrary to what the Feminist Theology espouses: for a woman to be truly free and empowered: she had to be equal to a man’s place in society, which could only be accomplished by the usurpation of man’s place in society, this scripture proves this tenet isn’t and never has been necessary to allow the woman to maximize her gifts. If the woman depicted in Proverbs could be this business tycoon, thousands of years ago, it still applies to the biblical woman of today.
From my many years of marital counseling experience and presenting Marriage Enrichment Seminars, when men and women learn the truth about a biblical marriage and become submissive to the assigned roles God has given man and woman in marriage, and their goal is to please Jesus with their marriage, things rapidly change as the Holy Spirit is given control of the marriage outcome.
The Feminist Theology strives to remove the obvious difference between the sexes as they work to blur God’s assigned roles in life. If one pauses to consider how this godless formula has ruined the covenant of a biblical marriage, how can they count themselves among those who deny its harm?
Pilgrims, old Doc believes the more feminized men have become, the less desirable they are to women, even feminized women. So, today, women’s roles have become visually filled with powerful images that depict violence and evil. Women have also become the Super-heroes’ and men are either stooges or subservient.
Doc’s Marriage Boot Camp includes biblical communication skills that are sorely missing in the T.V show. Doc’s teaching emphasizes the great difference between the sexes concerning how men and women communicate, visualize the world, interpret it, and live out its reality. At every step of the lesson, it will draw the stark difference between a Feminist Theology Communication model and a biblical model for men and women during communication. Since Doc’s communication will flow from scripture and with a reliance upon the ‘renewing of the mind by the Holy Spirit, the goal will be completely different and the outcome will be produced by the leading of the Holy Spirit, not the dark deeds of Satan’s world.
Pilgrim, if your marriage has nearly been captured by Satan’s lies about the formula for a successful marriage because you have mixed the Atheist Feminist Theology with God’s scriptural marriage formula, then you need to book a weekend with Doc Christian. You need to recognize that your marriage if full of SIN. You are in desperate need to have your minds renewed by the Holy Spirit’s truth. You need to discern that you can’t stop sinful knowledge from entering into your brain because the majority of all information you receive is sinful, Godless drivel designed to push you farther away from Jesus; but, you can use God’s Bible as a filter.
When you realize the choice about the solution for your dysfunctional marriage lies between the choice of listening to God’s instructions and heeding them, verses to a million Satanic ones, and you choose to serve your Savior, Jesus Christ, you will have taken the first step to healing your sin-sick marriage.
A personal note, a woman commented on my page I needed to be respectful for she was in a “Committed Relationship”. Please! When half of the Pilgrim marriages fail, and far more Heathen marriages fail, what does she expect out of her ‘Committed Relationship?’ God considers Shacking-up couples as living in sin, so should Pilgrims.
