Bring It On-Line: Absentee Husband

My husband and I have been married 23 years but he spends way too much time away from home and seems at times to take me for granted. I have thought about cheating on him lately. My kids are growing up, and I'm growing very tired of his ... Read Transcript


WE'RE GOING TO JUMP RIGHT

INTO E-MAIL.

I WAS READY TO GO.

ANDREA WRITES, "MY HUSBAND

AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 22

YEARS, AND HE SPENDS WAY TOO

MUCH TIME AWAY FROM HOME.

AND SEEMS TO TAKE ME FOR

GRANTED.

ALL THE YEARS OF MY

MARRIAGE, CHEATING HAS NEVER

CROSSED MY MIND.

BUT I THOUGHT ABOUT IT

LATELY.

MY KIDS ARE GROWING UP, AND

I'M GROWING VERY TIRED OF

HIS ABSENTEEISM."

ANY ADVICE FOR ANDREA?

Pat: ALL I CAN THINK IS

TELL HIM YOU WANT TO TAKE A

VACATION, AND GO TO SOME

EXOTIC PLACE, AND BLOW A FEW

DOLLARS ON SOMETHING SWEET,

KAYAKS, WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO

DO.

IF HE LIKES TO HIKE, HUNT OR

FISH, THE TWO OF YOU GET OUT

TOGETHER AND GET WITH IT.

THIS IS TYPICAL IN MARRIAGES

OF 25 OR 30 YEARS.

PEOPLE GET A LITTLE BIT

BORED WITH EACH OTHER, AND

THEY WANT A LITTLE

EXCITEMENT.

THE ONE EXCITEMENT YOU DON'T

WANT IS AN EXTRA-MARITAL

AFFAIR.

I DOUBT IF YOU'RE HUSBAND IS

YOUR HUSBAND IS HAVING ONE.

SAY, DEAR, LET'S TAKE A

CREWS TO ALASKA, GO DOWN THE

RINE RIVER.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS YOU

CAN DO.

THE TWO OF YOU GET OUT AND

HAVE SOME FUN Tj()Q).

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

GREAT ADVICE.

SYLVANA SAYS, "I HAVE BIBLES

IN DIFFERENT VERSIONS, SUCH

AS N.I.V., AND NEW KING

JAMES AND OTHERS, AND MY SON

WAS CONCERNED THAT I USE

THESE BIBLES BECAUSE HE SAYS

THEY ARE CORRUPT.

I HAVE SINCE ORDERED AN

AUTHORIZED KING JAMES

BIBLE.

MY PASTOR DOES NOT PREACH

OUT OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE,

EITHER.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO D]?"

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU,

YOUR SON HAS GOTTEN A HOLD

OF SOME ULTRA FUNDAMENTALIST

THAT DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS

TALKING ABOUT.

I LOVE THE PHRASEOLOGY OF

THE KING JAMES, AND IT IS

EASY TO REMEMBER.

HOWEVER, THE KING JAMES WAS

TRANSLATED FROM A TEXT

CALLED THE TEXTUS RECEPTO,

AND THAT WAS IN THE

1600s -- WHATEVER, IN THAT

TIMEFRAME.

MORE AND MORE, WE'RE GOING

TO BACK TO THE SO-CALLED

CODE OF SEAS, BACK AS CLOSE

AS WE CAN TO THE AUTOGRAPHS,

THE ORIGINALS, AND SOMETHING

LIKE THE NEW HUNDRED

NATIONAL VERSION OF THE

AMERICAN STANDARD AND OTHERS

ARE MUCH, MUCH CLOSER TO THE

TRUE GREEK AND THE HEBREW.

NONE OF THEM HAVE THE BEAUTY

OF THE KING JAMES, BUT THERE

ARE STUFF IN THE KING JAMES

THAT ISN'T ACCURATE.

THEY SAY IF IT WAS GOOD

ENOUGH FOR

THE APOSTLE PAUL,

IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.

BUT HE DIDN'T WRITE THE KING

JAMES.

SO YOUR SON IS INTO

SOMETHING HE DOESN'T KNOW

WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: I LOVE THE NEW

KING JAMES BECAUSE YOU

RETAIN SOME OF THE BEAUTIFUL

POETRY.

Pat: BEAUTIFUL.

BUT THE NEW AMERICAN

STANDARD IS0P =1e CLOSER

TO THE GREEK.

THE N.I.V. IS THE ONE I

USE.

AND IT IS TRANSLATED BY

EVANGELICAL SCHOLARS WHO

LOVE THE LORD, LOVE THE

WORD, AND HAVE DONE A REAL

GOOD JOB OF RESEARCH.

Wendy: NEGA WRITES,

"WHY WHEN JESUS PERFORMS

MANY OF HIS MIRACLES HE GOES

TELLS, GO AND TELL NO ONE.

IN MARK 5, JESUS RAISED THE

DAUGHTER OF JARUS FROM BED,

BUT AGAIN, TELLS THAT NO ONE

SHOULD KNOW.

IN MARK 7, JESUS HEALS A MAN

THAT IS DEAF AND MUTE AND

ALSO TELLS THE CROWD TO TELL

NO ONE.

AND WHEN HE PERFORMS

MIRACLES FOR HIS DISCIPLES,

AND THEY SAID GOD, HE TELLS

THEM TO TELL NO ONE.

WHY DOES HE DO THAT?"

Pat: JESUS DIDN'T WANT

TO BE MOBBED.

IF SOMEBODY SAYS, THAT MAN

JUST HEALED ME, THEN THERE

WILL BE 10,000 PEOPLE

SWARMING ALL OVER HIM.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT THAT.

THERE WAS A TIME FOR HIM TO

SHOW HE IS THE MESSIAH, AND

THAT CAME AFTER HIS

CRUCIFIXION.

BUT HE KNEW HE HAD TO

SUFFER, AND HE KNEW HE HAD

TO DIE, AND HE KNEW HE WAS

GOING TO BE RAISED FROM THE

WORKED OUT.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT A

MONSTEROUS CROWD.

THEY CAME TO TRY TO MAKE HIM

A KING.

AND HE SAID, NO, NO.

I KNOW WHAT'S IN THE HEARTS

OF PEOPLE, AND I DON'T WANT

TO TRUST MYSELF TO THEM.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS ALL

ABOUT.

HE DIDN'T WANT A MOB SCENE.

LIKE AT THESE CELEBRITIES

TODAY.

WHO WANTS TO BE SURROUNDED

BY A LOT OF PAPARAZZI.

IT IS THE SAME THING IN

JESUS' DAY.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

BECKY WRITES, "YESTERDAY I

CAME ACROSS A SHOW ABOUT

ANGELS.

I AGREED WITH SOME OF WHAT

THEY WERE SAYING.

THERE WERE SOME I DID NOT

AGREE WITH, LIKE WE ALL HAVE

GUARDIAN ANGELS, AND THAT WE

HAVE MANY ANGELS FOR EACH OF

US, ALL AROUND.

AND THEY ALSO SAID WE SHOULD

PRAY TO ANGELS FOR HELP."

Pat: UTTER NONSENSE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THEY'RE

LOOKING AFTER THE HEIRS OF

SALVATION.

TO MY KNOWLEDGE, THERE IS NO

COUNTRY TO BACK UP THE FACT

THAT EVERYBODY HISTORY A,

QUOTE,"GUARDIAN ANGEL."

THERE ARE ANGELS LOOKING

AFTER US.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRAY

TO ANGELS OR TO WORSHIP THE

HEAVENLY BODIES OR ANY OF

THAT.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO WORSHIP

GOD HIMSELF.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO PRAY TO

THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS IN

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRAY

TO ANGELS.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

LOOKING FOR THE SO-CALLED

NOSTICS, WHICH CAME FROM

NOSIS KNOWLEDGE.

THEY THOUGHT THE WAY TO GET

TO HEAVEN WAS TO IDENTIFY

THESE BEINGS TO GET TO

HEAVEN.

IF YOU COULD IDENTIFY THIS

GUY, YOU COULD NAME HIM AND

GET UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

THAT'S ALL NONSENSE.

THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE

PLAYING GAMES WITH ALL OF

THIS ANGELIC STUFF DON'T

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

YOU CAN ASK THE LORD, AND

SAY SEND THE ANGELS.

YOU CAN ASK GOD, SEND THE

ANGELS, LORD.

WE NEED HELP.

SEND THE ANGELS.

BUT YOU DON'T PRAY FOR THE

ANGELS --

Wendy: DON'T PRAY TO

THE ANGELS.

YOU CAN PRAY FOR ANGELS TO

COME.

Pat: GOD SAID, I'LL

SEND MY ANGELS WITH YOU.

AND MOSES SAID, UNLESS YOU

GO, I DON'T WANT TO GO.

DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS

NEW AGE AND ALL OF IT.

DON'T DO IT.

Wendy: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

GOOD ANSWERS.
