We are familiar with the story of how Jonah tried to avoid doing what God had told him to do (Jonah 1). Do men shirk, or try to run from their responsibilities to God today?
Psalms 139:1-12 tells us God knows everything about us. Yet, the Bible has numerous examples of people who made excuses for not doing God’s will - Jeremiah said he was too young (Jeremiah 1:16); while Moses said he was not an eloquent speaker (Exodus 4:10). The Parable of the Feast (Luke 14:16-20) recounts several excuses made for not attending a great feast. However, Hebrews 4:13 tells us we cannot hide from God. This study looks at how men try to hide from doing what God has commanded of us.

One of the things that distinguishes New Testament Christianity from denominational religion is its practice of a cappella worship in the public assembly. Instrumental music worship was a much later addition to Christian churches and a deviation from the pattern of worship set forth by the apostles in the New Testament. This video is a defense of the Biblical instruction regarding musical worship in the church.

The book of Proverbs, with all its wisdom, observes, “There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yes, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent on a rock; the way of a ship in the middle of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid (young woman)” (Proverbs 30:18-19).
With the Proverb writer writing, “I do not know” or understand the way of a man with his woman, and the New Testament instruction, “Husbands dwell with your wives with understanding,” and wives being admonished to “love their husband.” it is obvious that understanding our spouses calls for much insight, openness, and effort.
The song of Solomon provides a unique perspective to challenge our view of attraction, marriage, intimacy, and sexuality. The graphic nature of the song of Solomon may be shocking to you. However, when we consider the statement,“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you may know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor” (1 Thessalonians 4:3,4) we can comprehend why this is such a critical study. Our sexual gratification and subsequent avoidance of sexual immorality is realized within the marriage relationship. “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled” (Hebrews 13:4). The chorus of the music of marriage is the undefiled bed.
