We had the concept of Privacy and Private Property.
Privacy is a state of being apart from the observation and company of others. It is the natural right of the human race to isolation and seclusion.
Privacy, property, and life are the basic concepts of happiness and freedom.
There is the importance of the concept of Right Man and Right Woman. Divine Institutions #2 and #3, Marriage and Family, are protected by the principles in the Decalogue.
GEN 2:24 For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
PRO 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord.
Ecc 9:9 Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life which He has given to you under the sun; for this is your reward in life, and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.
1CO 7:17 Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk. And thus I direct in all the churches.
Sometimes this interference comes from family members, sometimes it comes from friends or people who have no right to stick their nose into the marital affairs of others.
- Your Freedom
2. Your choice in the opposite Sex
3. Your responsibility as a parent.
1TI 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.
The husband is also commanded in COL 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be embittered against them.
COL 3:18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
1PE 3:6 Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.
What about the woman, is she commanded to love the man?
Respect is the pres-mid-subj of phobeo which means to respect, to be in awe of, to revere, to treat with deference, courtesy, high regard or reverential obedience.
When the right man initiates love to the right woman, she responds with respect.
Never marry a man you don't respect. Because your feelings towards him are always strong, one way or another.
Because the key to a great relationship of love is not love and not hate, the key is respect.
When you love him, you'll respect him.
When you hate him, you still respect him.
When you mad at him, you'll still respect him.
When you're glad about him, you'll still respect him.
The thing that will be developed in the woman's relationship with the right man is respect.
The thing that will be developed in the man's relationship with the woman is a love, that is aggressive and an initiating love.
Beware about being sentimental about a man whom you do not respect.
Right woman, He built her, Gen 2:22.
The first great decision that you make is to believe on TLJC as your Lord and Savior.
The second greatest decision you can make is your right pastor-teacher who can teach you Bible doctrine and the mind of Christ.
Then the third greatest decision is finding the right man or right woman God has designed for your life.
Because no disaster, pressure, or unfaithful act, can destroy personal love between a right man and a right woman.
DEU 32:4 "The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.
Jam 1:17 Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above.
It should be no surprise that when the Lord gives you any gifts that the gift will perfectly suit you.
The doctrine of warfare or what the Bible has to say about war!
In spite of man's efforts for peace throughout the ages, warfare will exist until the millennium, Mat 24:4‑7.
Isa 2:4 Nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war.
In fact, war is used by God to kill off the leaches of society; in reality it is a cleansing agent.
This is why the Bible teaches in Ecc 3:8, that "There is a time for war, and there is a time for peace."
There is a book of wars that comes directly from the Lord.
NUM 21:14 Therefore it is said in the book of the wars of the Lord, what He did in the Red Sea, and in the brooks of Arnon.
The misnomer of war is the word "sword" in MAT 26:52, "for all who draw the sword shall perish by the sword."
