A Real Life Story on Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage and Adultery

In August 2009, I was speaking at an Association of Marriage and Family Ministries conference in Phoenix, AZ.  After my presentation I was late for lunch and a black gentleman with an accent approached my table as I was eating alone.  I recognized him from being in my presentation.  He asked if he could join me for lunch.  I said, “Absolutely,” and thanked him for joining in my session.  He introduced himself as Pastor Morvan… Read More

Hot Topics in Marriage

We’ve spent the last few weeks on posts talking about key and foundational principles and issues from God’s Word when it comes to love, relationships, sexuality and marriage. The focus for these included “Serving is Love is Authority,” “Unconditional Love – Forgiveness and Trust” and others (check out for the past several articles, podcasts and videos)! This week we’re jumping into deeper waters and some, well let’s just say, somewhat controversial texts of Scripture when it comes to Marriage, Adultery, Divorce and Remarriage. Remember,… Read More

Forgiveness and Trust – Unconditional Love

Forgiveness and Trust

In almost every case with struggling couples, no matter what the symptoms are, there are major foundational issues rooted in unforgiveness and distrust. I want to share some Scripture and insights that have helped many. Forgiveness is mandatory (Matthew 6:14-15; Ephesians 4:32); Trust is earned (John 2:24).

In Christ’s Kingdom – Loving is Serving is Authority

A Marriage Parody on Loving Servant-Leadership – The Clothes Basket on the Stairs…

Our most recent article focused on a marriage tip regarding real authority and “who wears the pants in your marriage/family?”  The 2 pair of pants, found in 2 acronyms were “Proper Authority Needed To Succeed” and Proper Attitude Needed To Serve.”  According to God’s Word when we “lord it over others” we are not actually in authority but are practicing according to the world and unbelievers (Matthew 20:20-28).  On the other hand when we lovingly submit and serve we…Read More

The Authority of Love – Book and Conference Promo

This is a stand alone video that gives a summary of the calling addressed in The Authority of Love book and upcoming conference.

This book, the Love and Lordship ministry and related events is the result of years of teaching and mentoring men and couples in life and relationships, namely marriage and family. The vision is discipleship in loving relationships under the Lordship of Christ. Our mission is to re-establish His Covenant Order through marriage, family and in all relationships. We long to see these 4 tenets restored according to His Word, design and plan by the power of The Holy Spirit in Christ’s Authority in His Church for His Kingdom and Glory:

  1. The Imago Dei (Image of God) with Christ as Lord in all things;
  2. Agape (Godly, selfless, sacrificial, unconditional Love) Marriages, Families and Relationships;
  3. Relational Servant-leadership and;
  4. Generational Discipleship in our homes, the Church and world.

This is God’s Covenant Design for peace in our life, marriage, family and Christ’s Church to impact our chaotic culture and world for His Kingdom.
