Believing that there is only one perfect marriage match for each person in the world, and that a marriage can survive solely on love, are two major misconceptions prevalent among Christians today, Pastor Rick Warren says.
Warren, senior pastor of the 25,000-member Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, said in his "Daily Hope" bog post on Thursday that one of the most common misconceptions about marriage is that there is only one person for every person in the entire world.
Not only is this belief unbiblical, it's also purely illogical, Warren explains: "If there were only one right person for everybody in the world, it would only take one person to make a wrong decision and break the chain for everybody else." more >>
Is an eating disorder considered a sin? Arizona-based Trinity Church Pastor Mark Driscoll answers, including a response that Satan's oppression and idolatry can sometimes be culprits.
In a video message posted to his website Monday in response to a female viewer's question about whether anorexia nervosa is sinful, Pastor Mark Driscoll opened up a larger discussion about the societal pressures on physical appearance many women and men face. Those pressures are often exacerbated by celebrity and social media. Driscoll offered suggestions on how to combat the viewer's challenge.
According to WomensHealth.gov, per the National Eating Disorders Association, the average American woman is 5'4'' and weighs 140 lbs., while the average American model is 5'11'' and weighs 117 pounds. "All too often, society associates being 'thin' with 'hard-working, beautiful, strong and self-disciplined,'" the report said.

It's been almost a year already since "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar got involved in a cheating and molestation scandal. Now, after spending some time in a Christian rehab, he is back in the real world but this time in a more low-profile lifestyle. According to a report by People, the 28-year-old reality star returned home to Arkansas and joined in their family business of restoring and selling used cars.
The source shared some photos of Josh trying to sell a camouflage-patterned jeep, which is said to be tagged with an asking price of $16,500 to a potential buyer. And despite the series of scandals he just went through, it can be seen in the photos that he seems happy with his new job.

Forty to 50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce, according to research by the American Psychological Association. To help married couples avoid becoming a divorce statistic, Harvest Christian Fellowship church Pastor Greg Laurie is offering up some sage advice.
In Sunday's sermon titled How to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage, part of his sermon series Home Sweet Home, Laurie shared biblical principles and life experiences based on his 42-year marriage to wife, Cathe, in a straight-talking conversation on marriage.
"After we say, 'I do,' there's a lot more to be done, and if you think you're done, you're finished," Laurie told Harvest congregants. The pastor likened marriages to gardens, saying that as a garden that is neglected becomes overgrown with weeds, so too neglected marriages suffer a similar fate. " … When we see marriages start to unravel, it isn't usually overnight, it's over a period of time when there is neglect … if you neglect your marriage, it will slowly but surely die." more >>
