The Homemaker's Helper

A Christian Homemaker's Priorities

  1. God - Pray. Read from the Bible daily. Live your life for Christ, and joy in the Lord always.

  2. Husband - Be kind to him, appreciate him, and never nag, or try to change him. Read and live the book Fascinating Womanhood.

  3. Children - Praise them for good deeds daily. Be consistent when discipline is needed. Provide steady structure, and a steady diet of love. Have a good attitude - little eyes are watching and learning

  4. Homemaking

A) Your appearance - make sure you look nice. Wear a pretty and modest dress, and head covering. Look your best every day, regardless if you plan to go somewhere or not. Make sure you are healthy - take care of your teeth, hair, skin, and figure.

B) Regular meals for you and your family - three healthy, square meals a day

C) A tidy house - even if you are behind on housework, you can still take five minutes to tidy up each room, which will make your home look clean and inviting.

D) Education and self improvement - homeschool/home educate your children, and don't forget to continue enriching yourself via reading good books. There are many books recommended on this website, and some of them are free. Take advantage of these.

Basic Daily Cleaning Routine

Why the Bible is not my Idol

Many King James Only people are accused of being a cult, or being Bible worshippers. These accusations are shot at me regularly, as they are at most outspoken KJV believers.

First off, most of us don't come to KJV only on a whim, or off the word of some other person. We research it, and make the informed decision ourselves. When I got saved, the man who led me to the Lord told me to only read the King James Bible, and that the other versions weren't worth the trouble. I didn't know why he said that, but I decided that my first time through the Bible was going to be in the King James Version.

After I read the KJV Bible for the first time, I planned to read the Living Bible next, after that the NIV, and then perhaps the NKJV. I loved the KJV. It was beautiful to read. It had a rhythm to it, and the words just flowed. When I tried to read the other Bible versions, I felt talked down to, like it was assumed I was some imbecile who couldn't understand what God was saying, so I had to instead read what man thought God was saying. Remember, at this point, I had still not heard any other reasons why the KJV is the best; I just noticed that the newer versions seemed - watered down.

Further, I noticed that many of the verses in the King James Bible can have levels of application in my life, while in the newer versions, the levels were often diminished, to just one or two. I couldn't stand the Living Bible or the NIV, so I stopped reading those, and just went back to the KJV. I read 3/4 of the NKJV, and couldn't stand it any longer, and stopped. I read the whole New Testament in some hip, contemporary translation that has all but now disappeared. While that wasn’t as bad, it was still - bad.

One day, I turned on the TV, and was flipping through the channels, and came upon a show that was within five minutes of ending. It was on one of the Christian stations. What caught my attention, was that the man was saying that the only Bible worth reading is the KJV. He then rattled off a list of Scriptures that are MISSING from the new Bible versions, but are in the KJV. I tried to recall as many as those verses as I can, and looked them up in a NIV, and compared them to my KJV. SHOCKING.

There are over sixty-three thousand words missing from the NIV, with that number varying a bit in other new translations. I started researching why the KJV had more words. I learned that the words missing from the new translations were usually very important words. For example:

"And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!" -Mark 10:24 KJV

"The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!" -Mark 10:24 NIV

If you were leading your children in a Bible study, and using a NIV, you could scare the poor souls, and discourage them. According to the NIV, the children are told it is hard to enter the kingdom of God, but according to the (correct) KJV, it's only hard for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God.

This is one example of many. Another - John 3:16, take a look:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." King James Version

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." New International Version

The Greek word that translates to the English "begotten" is in EVERY ancient manuscript of the Bible. It was even in the corrupt manuscripts that the NIV was translated from. Yet, most new Bible versions skip that word, and don't translate it. Perhaps this is for mammon, since each new Bible translation has to be significantly different, or they can't get a copyright.

By removing the word "begotten," a serious contradiction occurs. In the Old Testament, angels were called "sons of God." But the NIV John 3:16 says Jesus is the one and only Son of God - CONTRADICTION. The New Testament tells us that born again Christians have become Sons of God via adoption, and therefore all born again Christians are "sons of God." Whoops, in the NIV that is a contradiction, because the NIV's John 3:16 says that Jesus is the "one and only Son of God." The distinciton is missing from most new Bible versions - the word "begotten." Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son of God, while angels are created sons of God, and saved Christians are adopted sons of God.

Friends, I am not even close to scratching the surface on this issue. It's insane. If I don't slow down, I'm going to end up writing a book here, and I have stuff to do, so I gotta start wrapping this up. Below are study resources, where you can see the fact that the KJV is the inerrant Word of God for yourself. If you haven't researched this, you owe it God, to yourself and your children to do so - don't you want to know the truth?

Free Study Resources:

My article - King James Only

Free book - Fighting Back

Free book - The Answer Book

Free book - An Understandable History of the Bible

NIV, NASB et al. Tract Excerpts from New Age Bible Versions

The above is a starting point for research.

Why the Bible is not my Idol

1) I do not worship it. I revere it as the Word of God, and it is my joy to read it and study it every day, because it teaches me more about God my Father whom I DO worship.

2) It's not the most important thing ever to me, but it tells me about what's most important to me - God.

3) It's the word of God, so why wouldn't I deem it important? It's the most important thing to read in the universe.

Why I Have so Many Bibles

I try to do the Great Commission. Wherever I am, that's the mission field. When I get the honor to lead someone to Christ, I like to be able to give them a Bible, but I want to give them a GOOD one. This is one of the reasons I spend time looking into different Bibles and study Bibles. I don't always have a lot of Bibles, because I give Bibles away. Not only do I give Bibles to new converts, but I also give some good study Bibles away to friends who are looking for new Bibles.

Further, I keep several study Bibles for my personal studies. I use Scripture to interpret Scripture. When I get that "aha" moment, and I learn something new from the Scriptures, I like to read study notes from Godly men of the past, and see if their notes came to the same conclusion as I did. Believe me, if the world weren't so biblically ignorant, I wouldn't have to "dialogue" with men's written study notes so much. I could just discuss it with other Bible reading, Bible believing Christians.

Unfortunately, I only know a few people who actually read the Bible regularly. Sad, sad, sad.

Usually, when I bring up topics of things I've recently learned from the Bible, the person I'm talking to just gives me a blank look, and says "I haven’t read the Bible through, yet."

If you've been a Christian for over a year, and haven't read the Bible all the way through at least once - shame on you. Certainly, there are exceptions, but I'm talking about the average person who has easy access to the Scriptures, and who has no handicaps.

Christians and the Bible vs. Catholics and Mary

Someone asked me what the difference between a Christian's revering the Bible, and the Roman Catholic's "relationship" with Mary is. This could be an article within itself, but I'll try to keep the answer brief. Here, I will just touch upon three main points:

1) Without the Bible, Christians wouldn't know what Christians are. We read the Bible for proper doctrine. God gave us His written word, so that we don't have to get it through some earthly priest, who is fallible, errant, and a fellow sinner.

1) Roman Catholic priests take an oath that they will never interpret the Bible differently than early (and may I also add corrupted) writings say. The problem with this, is that early writers disagreed with each other. This is therefore "remedied" via their pope.

2) I do not pray to the Bible.

2) Roman Catholics pray to Mary. There are prayers to Mary for faithful Papists to pray at the Vatican website, and this is taught in their catechism.

3) The Bible is not an idol, for it is not a likeness of a living thing. It is a book. The Bible is also not an idol in my heart, because I do not love it more than God. I read the Bible because I love God, and He wrote it for me to read.

3) Romanists have idols of Mary and saints. You can find prayers and pictures of them bowing to and praying to them, all over the internet and in many historical books.

Someone else also asked me why I think a Bible translated in the 1600s is superior to those translated today. In answer to that question, I refer you to my article linked ealier in this post, along with the other linked resources. If you are truly seeking, then you'll likely find your KJB questions answered at one or more of those resources.

In Conclusion

The Enemy will stop at nothing to try to get us not to read the Bible, even stuping so low as to accuse us of something so absurd as "bible worship." No, the Bible is not my idol. I know what idol worship is, because the Bible tells me what it is, and warns me against it over and over and over again. I read and study the truth, and it is setting me free.


Build Your Foundation on the Rock of Salvation

"He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." -Luke 6:48-49

"The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation." -2 Samuel 22:47

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6

The terms "Christian" and "personal relationship with Jesus Christ" have been bantered around so much, that for many people, they have lost their original savor. What is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it going to church? Is it being a "good person?" Is it via doing certain rituals, or following certain traditions? No, it is so much simpler than that.

Jesus says:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20

Let Jesus into your heart and life. Put your faith and trust in Him, and in Him alone.

Why did Jesus Christ come to this earth? He came to pay for our sins. Have you ever broken any of the Ten Commandments? Did you know that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that just looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same thing as committing adultery in your heart?

Many people will say I'm a good person. Sure, I've stolen a few paper clips in my time, and I've told some lies, but I've never killed anyone, so I'm good enough for heaven. Don't be so sure. Have you ever felt hatred toward someone? If so, then you are guilty of committing murder in your heart:

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." -1 John 3:15

If you have stolen, lied, lusted after someone, hated someone, loved someone or something more than God, etc., then you have broken at least 5 of the Ten Commandments. Do you really think you'd make it to heaven? Not according to God's Word:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous {sinful} shall not inherit the kingdom of God {or go to heaven when they die}? Be not deceived: neither fornicators {sex outside of marriage, or pre-marital sex}, nor idolaters {loving something or someone more than you love God}, nor adulterers {physically, or in the heart}, nor effeminate {cross dressing}, nor abusers of themselves with mankind {homosexuality}, Nor thieves {even stealing a pen or paper clip makes you a thief}, nor covetous {inordinately desiring wealth or things}, nor drunkards, nor revilers {one who assails with abusive language}, nor extortioners {blackmail, or wresting anything from anyone via force}, shall inherit the kingdom of God." -1 Corinthians 6:9-10 {words in curly brackets are my notes}

But there is good news:

"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." -1 Corinthians 6:11

We are all sinners:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Even Mary, the woman chosen by God to be a vessel that would carry Jesus in her womb, was a sinner, and in need of a Saviour:

"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." - Mary said this in Luke 1:47. Only sinners need a Saviour, and Mary also accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour.

We are all imperfect, fallible sinners:

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." -1 John 1:5-8

The blood of Jesus Christ is what cleanses us from all sins. Jesus came to this earth to die to pay for our sins. You see, Leviticus tells us that 'the life is in the blood,' and that it takes spilt blood to atone for sin.

When we choose to truly believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, and to live our lives for Christ, then Christ's spilt blood cleanses us from our sins:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -Isaiah 1:18

Jesus tells us this:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - Jesus said this, in John 3:16-18

Paul gives us a simple "step by step process" on how to be saved:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." -Romans 10:9-11

Jesus is our one and only mediator:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" -1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus is our High Priest:

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." -Hebrews 4:14-15

We are to follow the Lord and the Bible, not traditions of man:

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" -Matthew 15:3

Jesus is God:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." -1 Timothy 3:16

If Jesus isn't the Lord of your life, then I hope that you will let Him into your heart and life this very moment.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

Have you built your foundation on the Rock of Salvation?

Jesus is the way. If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart and life, then let Him know. Pray to the Lord, telling Him that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and that you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sins. Tell this to God in your own words, from your heart.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23

Believe, and Receive:

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" -Ephesians 1:13

When you believe on Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. You are sealed as a child of God.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life as your Lord and Saviour, and you believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, to pay the death penalty for your sins, and that Christ rose from the dead three days later, and you are ready to let Him lead your life, and you will live for Him, then you are saved, and born again.

You are now a saved Child of God, with the Holy Spirit living within you. Dedicate your life to the Lord, and live for Him. Please get a King James Bible and turn to the Gospel of John. That is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you can read it for free, online - here.

After you've read the Gospel of John, go on to read Acts, and then Romans. These three books will bring you through the Gospel, the early church, and basic Christian doctrine. After you've read these three, then turn to the beginning of the New Testament, and read it all the way through. After that, read both the Old and New Testaments.

You should also follow the Lord and get baptized in water. A Believer's Baptism doesn't save you. Only faith in Christ saves you. A Believer's Baptism is an outward showing of your salvation. It symbolizes you being born again. When you are lowered under the water, it shows you dying to your old self, and when you are raised up out of the water, it symbolizes you being born again, as a new creature in Christ. This is called a Believer's Baptism, because, according to the Bible, a person is supposed to get baptized after they have believed on Christ. Anyone who was "baptized" before having faith in Christ just got wet - nothing more. You don't need to find a church to get baptized in. Any born again Christian can baptize you in any acceptable body of water - even a public swimming pool.

Find or start a good home church. Here is more information on Home Church, and why you should home church, or find one to join - HouseChurch.org. If you can't find or start a home church in your area, then look for a Family Integrated Church, an Independent Baptist church, or look in your phonebook for a nearby Baptist church.

Immerse yourself in the Bible. The Bible is God's love letter to you. It is also your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
