God's Truth Not Smooth Words

Husbands, Wives and Parents {short version}

Husbands, Wives and Parents {short version}


 excerpt Truth Gathering ©copyright 1998 Bonita M. Quesinberry, R.C., an AKJV Topical Bible exhaustive in critical-to-salvation subjects; the Topical Bible quotes each scripture, which with just part of the annotations here would equal twelve pages— more than that in the Topical Bible, which also includes a section on Divorce— but space here allows only scripture references and partial notations to reduce this post to 2 pages. Feel free to copy for ease in study. 


Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit. While they did not die immediately, our punishment is lifelong; thus rules were established regarding husbands and wives as well as for parenting. What does God expect of a man who becomes an earthly husband to a woman? Let the Lord say and hear well! Scripture references are from the Authorized King James Version Bible. Readers will want to look up and read each scripture, which then are followed by notes hereinbelow:


Genesis 2:22-24; 3:17-19 


* * * * * Now that Adam and Eve had eaten of the Tree of Knowledge, there was danger that they might also eat of the Tree of Life; thus, God had no choice but to remove them from the Garden of Eden: otherwise sin would reign forever. No longer would life be perfect in a perfect setting where every need was perfectly provided. Man would have to work very hard throughout his life span just to provide necessities. And, amidst his toil there would be adversities.

This, then, is Adam’s punishment along with God’s reminder that “I created you out of dust and dust is all you are and to dust you will return.” This hard-hitting statement clearly establishes that humanity is literally nothing without the power of God, be it positive or negative. We all would do well to remember this, for God could have chosen to simply destroy, right then and there, what He had created; then started over. * * * * *

Exodus 22:19; Leviticus 20:10, 15-16; Leviticus 21:7; Deuteronomy 22:5; 24: 5; 27: 20, 21, 22, 23; Proverbs 18:22; 21: 9, 19; 22:24-26, 29; 24:1-7, 9; 25:23-24, 28; 28:12-14; 29:22-23; 31:3-6; Ecclesiastes 7:1-6, 8-9; 9:9-10; 11:8-10; I Corinthians 7:1-16; 7:25-29, 32-33 ; 11:3-12; II Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:25-33; I Timothy 2:8; 3:2-5; Titus 2:6-8; 2:2; 2:11-15; I Peter 3:7-13



What does God expect of you? Let Him tell you and hear well! Now, ladies, don’t think Eve didn’t get her comeuppance! Indeed, she was the one deceived, not Adam. She pays in painful childbirth for her disobedience against God.

Genesis 3:16; Deuteronomy 22:5; Esther 1:20, 22; Proverbs 19:13-15; 27:15-16; 31:10-31; Ecclesiastes 7:26, 28; I Corinthians 7:2-5 ; 7:10-11; 7:13-17; 7:34, 39-40; 11:3, 8-9, 11-12;  II Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:22-24; I Timothy 2:8-15; 5:14-15; Titus 2:2-5;  I Peter 3:1-6

If you wonder why divorce rates are so high and why so many men either do not trust or literally hate women or both; take great care in understanding the above scriptures and you will understand. Unfortunately, Eve started the defiance ball rolling and women throughout the ages have kept it rolling to, virtually, defy God on all points. Men inherently seek a virtuous woman; the mentality breathed into them by God. How many virtuous women can be found today, even among professing Christians? Change the course of history, mothers, and teach your daughters to be virtuous women; both verbally and by example.


 PARENTING: What does God expect of parents of children with which He has blessed them? Let Him tell you and hear well! Permissive parents today are silently condemning their children to utter destruction.  

Proverbs 13:23-25; 19:18, 26-27; 20:11, 20, 29-30; 22:6, 15; 23:13-14; 23:24-26; 26:3-5;  28:7, 9, 24; 29:3, 15, 17-18; Ecclesiastes 4:13-14; 11: 10; Ephesians 6:1-4 

* * * * * Parents and children receive a promise from God. To parents, the Lord assures that children raised in the ways of the Lord will not depart from it when they mature. A child might stumble a time or two while spreading their wings of independence. But parents, who raised their kids to know and fear God by obedience, will see them return to their teachings when they finally mature! To children honoring and obeying their parents in the Lord, God promises they will live long, satisfied lives as well as being a joy to their parents.

The quickest way to anger a child is with abuse and/or neglect, either physically or emotionally or in failing to thoroughly teach and guide or all three. Corporal punishment, not to the point of abuse, is used only when a child knowingly rebels against God and His Law. If error is due to ignorance, then parents have failed to properly teach. Teach, verbally and by parental behavior/example, and guide a child into holiness— using the rod only when disobedient after having received the full knowledge and understanding of God’s wisdom on any case in point. It is a certainty that a parent’s rod is less permanent than God’s punishment set aside for the wicked. A parent’s rod may well save a rebellious child’s soul from eternal damnation. * * * * *

  1. Thank you for the write up! Also, just a heads up, your RSS feeds aren’t working. Could you take a look at that?

  2. Donna, thank you for comment; however, to consider the scripture references provided an attitude against women is to be against God. His Word is absolute regarding the subjects in this article: look up the verses.

    Much love in Christ,
    BonnieQ 🙂

  3. LOL! Indeed; however, with some of the topics it is rather difficult to shorten them as much as this one: even just using the scriptures references as opposed to quoting scripture. Even the longer ones are short by comparison to what’s in “Truth Gathering.”

    Love in Christ,
