Despite Attitudes about Marriage Rapidly Changing, Most Americans Hope to Get Married
A large majority of Americans hope to be married one day, even as Americans’ attitudes about marriage have changed dramatically over the last decade.

Eighty-one percent of Americans who have never been married would like to be married someday, according to a recent survey by Gallup which explored American attitudes towards a range of issues regarding children, sexuality, and marriage. Those changing attitudes include the revelation that the majority of those who attend church weekly do not believe it is very important for parents who have children together to marry.

One surprising find in the survey is how differently Americans view children being born outside of marriage than they did a decade and a half ago. In 2006, 49 percent of Americans believed that it is “very important for couples with children together to legally marry.” That percentage dropped to 29 percent in 2020 while those who say ...

Acts 16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

"Beloved, cling to the great truth of electing love and divine sovereignty, but let not these bind you in fetters when, in the power of the Holy Ghost, you become fishers of men.”. CH Spurgeon

The “right” gospel is Paul’s gospel (II Timothy 2:8), the gospel of God (Romans 15:16), the gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:1). That is the gospel that I preach, and I find that it works a lot better than a gospel that someone considers to be superior but doesn’t preach, just like a lit firecracker gets more done than an unlit stick of dynamite. If you honestly believe your gospel is better, then get out of the house and preach it. My Bible says that the Word of God is the sword of the Spirit. Real soldiers don’t sit around defending their swords. They wade into battle and swing them.

to *put*, in the Hebrew - shiyth-to set, station, appoint, fix, set mind to. Those who 'put their trust' in Christ set their mind to do so. How can they set their mind to do this? This is where the Spirit of God comes into play in saving a sinner, He opens the mind- John 3. He gives understanding, this understanding given by the Spirit is the 'cause' of 'putting your trust' in Christ. If this isn't made clear, then the sinner is led to believe they can say they put their trust in Christ without ever understanding what that entails. The devil is in the details.....So we should never tell a lost sinner to 'put their trust' in Christ, for only the elect 'put their trust' in Christ, and only AFTER the Spirit has done His work. I remember a deacon once saying repeatedly, 'when I trusted in Christ as my Lord and Savior', yet he didn't know the Christ of the bible. He was trusting in what HE did.

Yes, when it comes to the Gospel, the truth found in God's word, we must be that nitpicky..It is NOT something we 'do', it's something the Spirit of God does in us.
This is an excellent writing from a dear brother entitled 'which Jesus?' - https://www.facebook.com/john.pedersen.90857/posts/10222468780090950. You should be able to read that even if you don't have a fb acct.

To make an object one's own confidence is expressed as to put or place trust in that object.
The same concept is included in the biblical term 'believe', which differenciates it from any idea of a mere intellectual knowledge.

With the heart one believes unto salvation.

Actually, Heb. 2:13 reads this way in the interlinear, 'and again, I will be trusting in him'. Who is talking in that text? Christ. Verse 11 tells us who is doing the talking in verses 12 and 13. Here's the end of verse 11, "he is not ashamed to call them brethren", and the start of vs 12, "saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee". Then vs. 13, "and again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold, I and the children which God hath given me" - this is Christ talking....

Yes US, we only believe/trust in Christ because God gives us faith to believe. That we both agree on.

Tim, the problem is MOST of today's 'preaching' leads to a different jesus, which leads to idolatry. You seem to think getting the Gospel RIGHT is irrelevant. You fail to see that most people follow a different jesus, a free will jesus, a 'god loves all' jesus, a jesus that died for all, but can't save anybody unless they do something. A jesus that says keep the law, even though the law only condemns, or get baptized, or a gazillion other things/steps to follow in order to get saved or stay saved. Most of today's gospel preaching is false, accursed. The gospel most preach has no power to save, no righteousness of God revealed....

Then why would you even make Gill Rugh or his website an issue? Even if you were just "defending the language," how can you be in any position to defend the language when you don't know Gills use of it? Why bring it up?
I have problems with Gills teachings. On the topic of this thread -marriage - if you care to examine that

Thanks James, I am not disputing that. Sister ladybug said that a website using the same Scriptural language found in Ephesians 1 was teaching a false doctrine of salvation by works. Well if they were then Paul under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost was too. That was the issue I was trying to address.

Every word of God is pure:
he is a shield unto them that *put their trust* in him.

***

For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
And again, I will *put my trust* in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

***

Hebrew 'khä·sä' and Greek 'pa'-tho' are both used for trust, or to rely or place trust in an object, say to confide or flee for assurance or protection.

According to the Bible, God uses PREACHING (I Corinthians 1:21) to save sinners. He doesn’t use debate. He doesn’t use intellectualism. He doesn’t use the power of “I’m-Right-and-You’re-Wrongism.” He uses the power of the gospel—Romans 1:16. I had the privilege of witnessing that power again a week ago today when I preached the GOSPEL , and six men came professing faith in Christ. It wasn’t my power—I don’t have any—but the power of the gospel that did it. For heaven’s sake stop all this thumb-sucking and bickering over the gospel and get out and PREACH it to someone. If you do it enough, some people will get saved—Psalm 126:5-6, II Corinthians 9:6. If you sit on your duff and argue about the gospel, you will never lead anyone to Christ.

Being specific is essential in a day of great apostasy. For example, Eph 1;13 says "in whom ye also trusted". Rugh says "put your trust" - see the difference? That simple slight of hand makes all the difference between a pseudo Jesus and the true Christ.

Thanks for the appropriate challenge here.

Biblically, say taking in the whole of scriptural teaching, 'receive' speaks of personal appropriation of Christ's atoning merit, while 'trust' is the reliance on that merit, and all because of the doings of the Spirit of truth in the individual *revealing* Christ to the soul.
Both terms are simple lingo which represent and/or summarize deep theological concepts.

That such terms have been oversimplified, misused, or mangled in certain lengths of evangelical thought, there is no doubt, but they are also abused by hyper calvinist rationale.

***

"the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me"

"when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth"

"no man knows who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him."

"it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
To *reveal* his Son in me"

US everyone and his dog uses biblical languages. All the cults use it too. I do jump to conclusions first until I get clarification. Do you know what Gill Rugh teaches for certain?

Do you know what Gill Rugh teaches on this??

What you are missing is what was pointed out - faith is a gift. Paul is consistent in his writings, keep on reading until you get to Ephesians 2:8,9. Faith is a gift, it is given by God, we don't 'put our trust' in Christ, we haven't the ability to do so. God must give us faith to believe, that was the whole point which seems to be overlooked. Faith is a gift, not something you do, not a work, like 'putting your trust', all who believe do so because God has given them faith to believe. Eph. 1,yes, they trusted 'after' they heard the Gospel, this is how God saves. He opens the mind at the preaching of the truth, He gives His elect understanding and causes them to trust in Christ. Apart from Him, you can do what? Nothing. We abide in Him, by His power, even believing is by His power.
I believe you are missing the point dear sister. I don't disagree with what you posted.

No need to assume that a site that uses language found in the Bible is teaching false doctrine. If I say a person needs to receive Christ, there is no need to jump to the conclusion that I am implying some man made ability, it is the language of John 1:12 and Colossians 2:6, same goes for trusting Christ.

usrs same language, was Paul wrong?
We have all of Pauls writings. We have the entire bible.
So when we get to that verse, we understand it consistent with the rest of what Paul said.
The faith we have is given. It is a gift.

The question is not, "was Paul wrong?" The question is, what does that verse mean to you?
By the way, what does marriage mean to you and Gill.
