What a great scholarly article written in such a clever engaging way! I appreciate the writer’s fresh approach and her non-apologetic style. It is clear. God’s commandments time and again prove to be for our benefit. They are the path to eternal happiness.
Loved the article. I have found what you said to be true with my own experience. I enjoyed the use of fairytale characters to get the point across. Their use added a familiarity that made it fun to read. Keep writing. The world needs more of your ideas and comments.
It is disheartening to hear that 70% of couples live together before they marry. Satan has certainly planted a great deal of fear in the hearts of these people, and somehow convinced them they will be saved from pain by not marrying. The decision to live together before marriage screams out: "I am not really committed," or "I am afraid you are not really committed." The ironic fact is that living together without being married greatly weakens the relationship because God cannot be part of it. When we marry, we make a covenant with our spouse AND with God. We must continually strengthen the foundation of marriage by committing our lives to living his commandments and striving to make Christlike love the very heart of marriage.
Thank you for this compelling, enlightening article. I will say though, I highly discourage people from tackling dragons. The tried and true approach to slaying dragons together is to go to the top of a tall tower that hasn't already been burned down by the dragon's fire, then have one person stand straight up (assuming they're the proper height, otherwise they might have to squat, or get a stool) and use their shoulder to support a large 6 foot black metal arrow, while the other person pulls back the bowstring that's been previously detached from their bow. They wait until the precise moment, and launch the arrow into the dragon's underbelly, and then pray desperately they survive the fall when the dragon's dying body knocks over the tower they were just standing on.
