Wives Submitting to Husbands

Hi,

I have been reading your website.  I am on the Journey of obedience to Jesus Christ.  I have a question.  Should a follower of Jesus attend funerals of loved ones who are not saved or people people in the so called “church”?  My husband , children and I stopped going to church a few months ago.  We are studying the scriptures and for the 1st time walking in obedience.  A pastor from an old Church died suddenly a few days ago, my husband wants to go to the memorial service tomorrow to pay respects to the family, I don’t want to go.  I’m not sure if I’m right. He says then if your mother or father dies, and if they die without salvation are we not to go to there funeral?  For some reason, I don’t think we should be going to funerals of the unsaved.  Even family.  I want to please the Lord above all else, but I don’t want to be in error anymore.. We have been so called saved for 15 years, but a year ago the Lord have been opening our eyes to deception.  I’m tired now.  I want the truth.

Thank you.

Follower of Christ,

Deniese

Subject: Weed

Hi again,

I am trying to tell my husband that a follower of Jesus should not smoke weed.  Is it OK for a follower to smoke weed? My husband says its a herb and God gave all the herbs in the field and he can’t find anything in the bible that says you should not, if your doing it legally..

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my email.

Hi Deniese,

Obviously, counsel about attendance at your late pastor’s funeral is too late, but it’s not too late to advise you on walking with the Lord in general. 

Whether or not you go to the funerals of people who aren’t believers depends on whether you’re a believer and what the Lord would have you do. This isn’t a matter like not committing adultery, where the application of the Law is straightforward. There are times to go to a funeral and times not to go. Followers of the Lord Jesus Christ have experienced both. (Are you reading much on our site? Read wHaT tHe LoRd HaS dOnE wItH mE.)

For now, because there is no specific Biblical direction by Law or principle to NOT go to funerals of unbelievers you should obey your husband on this matter unless and until you have specific instructions from the Lord otherwise. Put away your thoughts and just do as you’re told. Don’t complicate things unnecessarily. 

As for your husband’s argument about smoking weed, it is a feeble and foolish one given by many an unbeliever, an excuse that plainly comes from the lust of the flesh. God has given us all the herbs of the field, but not necessarily to smoke or ingest. Is your husband taking hemlock or nightshade? Common sense tells him not to and negates his reasoning and argument about using all herbs. 

If he doesn’t agree, it’s simply because he wants to justify his habit. Is he really interested in following the Lord? Can you see John the Immerser lighting up, or Peter or John, or Jesus, for that matter? Those of the true faith granted from above don’t give those kinds of arguments. You don’t have to follow your husband in this and ought not to. 

Read Obedience and So You Want to Walk with Jesus

As for legality, even if pot is legal for recreational or medical use, that doesn’t make it wise or good in the sight of God for anyone to get high as they please, especially those who take upon themselves His Name, which, if smoking, would be taking His Name in vain. It’s also legal for adults to get drunk socially or privately, alone or with many (if they’re not driving) – shall believers get intoxicated, too? 

I became a believer as a recreational pot smoker, but God soon showed me it wasn’t something I should be doing any longer and I stopped because of His intervention. God will do the same for your husband, if he believes. 

But even if your husband doesn’t believe, you’re to obey him where it doesn’t contradict God’s wisdom, commandments and instructions to you, clear or suggested by principle. 

“Likewise, wives, be in subjection to your own husbands, so that if any do not obey the Word, they may also be won without the Word by the conduct of the wives, having witnessed your chaste behavior in the fear of God” (1 Peter 3:1-2 MKJV).

Michael Rood's Gnostic Leaven
From: Dana To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, December 22, 2015 12:54 AM Subject: Nice site Bless you for your efforts! Is this site in a Berean or Messianic type of area? There's much to read, so if you could give me a general idea as to your area of belief it'd be helpful until I've the time to read more. There was a mention of a chat fellowship, which I've done before on Michael Rood's site. The fellowship chat felt shallow & meaningless...nobody really cared about each other. Just curious about if you've any insight to A Rood Awakenings teachings. Are they gnostic? If you have any suggestions to a legitimate fellowship of sabbath keepers in the Fort Mill SC area, please indicate. Thank you again & keep fighting!

The Final Judgment of a Miserable Fool - Jerry Naught, a.k.a. Harold Hesler
Name: Harold Hesler Email: hdh1953@gmail.com Subject: other Teaching: Message: It would not surprise me at all if You have had many who strongly disagree with You. First: NOTHING in the New Testament requires individuals to be "fruit inspectors" it is simply how we would know them. You "claim" of legitimacy is based on "dreams".....really? Sure there are people to beware of BUT Your error is on of the very superiority you attempt to refute in others. Your blatant self righteousness equates to nothing more than that of a modern day pharisee. Second: I do not need to defend, yet that is what this may be. You sit in Your office dreaming of finding errors and yet as an example have NEVER built a University or had thousands upon thousands in a single tent meeting, that is FRUIT!. O, please You can't handle the truth. Those "evil spirits" you noticed in "praise" and "worship" during Kenneth Copeland meetings were an attempt to stop the very thing that group of believers were doing, the same thing YOU are trying to stop. Why is Kenneth E. Hagin not within You list? Third: Your a miserable person comparable to Ellen G. White (also on Your list)who claim a vision (mandate) of the Lord. So it is then OK for You to espouse a heavenly given mandate but not others? So many people like You have "come to late" to convince others who have, unlike You, a strong foundation. It ain't about Cowboys and/or Indians...it's about Heaven or Hell, start there! On Apr 26, 2021, at 10:41 AM, Mart...
The Purpose of Condemnation is Restoration
From: Aston To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, June 11, 2016 2:06 AM Subject: Hell testimonies Victor, from what I see in your write up you just don't believe the Bible, Jesus in the Bible talks about the worms in Hell that never dies. Am not holding brief for these people that shared their experiences, true or false they shall answer to GOD, but you too shall answer to the same God for denying his word. You also twist the same Gospel, first remove the log in your eyes Victor before removing the speck in other people's eyes. Word is you are a hypocrite and deceiver yourself and a joker to claim monopoly of knowing the Bible better than others. From: Paul Cohen To: Aston Cc: Victor Hafichuk Sent: Saturday, June 25, 2016 7:26 AM Subject: Re: Hell testimonies Aston, Paul here. We aren’t denying God’s Word – we’re showing how those who interpret it as you do are plainly wrong and in Hell. The worm that never dies and the fire that isn’t quenched will do their work on you, thank God, as He promised.  “For it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.’ So then each one of us will give account concerning himself to God” (Romans 14:11-12 MKJV). When your condemnation has run its course, then you’ll know that God has sent us:  “Behold, I give out of those of the synagogue of Satan, those saying themselves to be Jews and are not, but lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your f...
