Sproul had truly cared about victims of domestic abuse he would have announced his change of mind on divorce for abuse a long time ago. As most of you are aware by now, R. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries died December 14th,
I met my wife and it was pretty much love at first sight. I dropped everything to move out of state with her for her graduate school 4 yearsincluding friends, hobbies, and beginning of my career in our hometown.
We got married halfway through grad school. My bachelor party was a bit out of control, but I did nothing to disrespect her, other than show up. Not to be graphic, but when the dancer initiated any physical contact, I managed to move away, despite my very inebriated state.
She almost called off the wedding, hammered me all week emotionally—to the point that I almost put a gun to my head not hyperbole, I was moments away from doing so.
By the end of the week, she started acting like a normal bride-to-be and our wedding was a good day. She constantly reminded me of the bachelor party for about 5 years, until I finally told her that I nearly killed myself during her unrelenting week of anger after the party.
By this point, our physical relationship was already diminishing, despite my continued support through her grad school. Also, a few months after our wedding was the third alcoholic physical attack directed at me.
One minute we were just laughing and talking or something harmless, then suddenly it started. This third time, she had already assaulted someone else at the party we were at. I will never forget her facial expression during her outbursts—unfiltered anger and hate.
Flash forward a few years. We get back to our hometown, start our professional careers, buy a house, and have a couple of children. While financially and goal-achievement-wise, the multi-level was a waste of time, it introduced me to personal development reading.
I learned that I can only change me. Even if not actual words, her body language and tone of voice frequently communicated a high level of disappointment, and currently still does. I have honestly assessed my own actions. I have learned that I have difficulty organizing and finishing tasks.
I used to think I was just disorganized, but after learning as an adult I have ADD, I can begin to take a different approach to changing me. The few times I tried to verbalize my feelings were failures. I wrote a letter, but that backfired.Infallibility.

I previously blogged at ph-vs.comaria and 40 Bicycles. This blog will provide a home for my occasional and various thoughts, links, and notes on my reading. While you may struggle to find a unifying theme here, my thoughts will frequently return to the subjects of biblical theology, the sacraments, and Christian .
The definitions of a Christian and a Spanko are well done for most people, there will always be something to add or change for everyone, but those in the article are likely acceptable to the vast majority. The Call to Action In the introduction of Shirley's book, Dethroning Male Headship, the doctrine that "doesn't have a leg to stand on" as she describes it, she explains that the serious errors of the new gender doctrines and the serious problems of the fruit of these doctrines must be confronted.
