Booty Call

Booty Call

While keeping up on current events, I have come to the conclusion that a lot of young people these days don’t understand “The Game” between men and women, and although Genesis 38 gives a description of “The Game”, I thought that it might be more effective to update the explanation and put it in secular terms. So here goes…

You know, single men used to have this sex out of wedlock situation under control. There were women that would accommodate a single man that wanted to have casual sex with no commitment. (See Genesis 38:15-23) Those women were known as prostitutes, harlots, or whores.

A whore provided a turnkey service; she provided the shield (condom) to avoid sexually transmitted diseases, she took care of her own birth control in case of a shield malfunction and she took responsibility for any problems she might have after the act.

A whore provided a turnkey service for which she was paid, just like Burger King. You don’t take utensils or napkins when you go to Burger…

Why Women have a Hard Time getting Married

  • January 19th, 2011 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  1 Comment

Let’s think about the Biblical concept of marriage for a minute:

God tells us, in Genesis 2:1820–24:

18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.

22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

23 And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall

Sex Too Soon – Please Teach Your Daughters

  • January 19th, 2011 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  0 Comments

Marilyn came in to see a counselor. She began, “I had a boyfriend two years ago that I can’t get over. He was a jerk and I should hate him, but I just can’t get over him. I just can’t.”

“Well”, the counselor said, “how old are you?”

“Nineteen”, Marilyn replied.

“And”, said the counselor, “how old were you when you had sex with him?”

Marilyn looked shocked for a moment. She opened her mouth, and then she closed it. Finally, she responded, “Well, it was the beginning of my senior year, so I was almost eighteen.”

The counselor said, “So, you were seventeen. Were you a virgin?”

“Yes”, said Marilyn, “but I…..”

And the counselor cut her off. “Marilyn”, the counselor said, “Stop talking. Listen and let me tell you something.

“One of the reasons that I recommend that teenagers not get involved in sex is that the brains of teenage girls produce emotions that girls feel very, very intensely; extremely intensely.

“Some of the most intense emotions come when girls or young women…

The Golden Rule

  • April 29th, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  1 Comment

An application of the Golden Rule is called the Thirty-Day Plan. The Thirty-Day plan came about from the fact that the questioner and their spouse became “enemies” when they disagreed about something and each wanted their way.

The Counselor advised the questioner to try the “Thirty-Day Plan”, which was to spend thirty days going along with any desire or interest that their spouse expressed rather than arguing or demanding to have their own way. The purpose was to determine whether being agreeable would improve the marriage. So, for thirty days, if their spouse wanted Italian food for dinner and they wanted Chinese, they should agree with the choice of Italian and see whether their acquiescence improved their marriage or not.

After being agreeable for thirty days the questioner was to report back the results.

Part 1

Gail said, “The phrase “sleeping with the enemy” so epitomized my relationship with my husband. The other night, after a heated argument, which I am ashamed to say occurred in front of my seven-year old, I decided to try…

A Sad Lesson Learned

  • April 13th, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  0 Comments

Lauren was discussing life with her counselor. She said, “I’m in a great relationship. I met him right after college, and we’ve been dating for three years. Recently, quite a few of our couple friends have gotten engaged. They’re a couple of years older than I am, but…”

The Counselor interrupted, “May I ask you how old you are and how old he is?”

Lauren replied, “I’m turning twenty-five next month, and he just turned thirty.”

The Counselor questioned, “Has he been married, divorced, or produced any children?”

“Absolutely not”, Lauren replied.

The Counselor asked, “Are you sexually intimate with him?”

“Yes”, said Lauren “I am.”

The Counselor queried, “Have you ever gotten pregnant by him?”

“No”, said Lauren “We’re very good about that. We’re very careful.”

The Counselor replied, “Well, every form of birth control has a failure rate.”

Lauren responded, “Very true.”

“Okay”, said the Counselor. “Tell me your situation.”

Lauren started, “Now, I’m kind of worried. We’ve never actually talked about getting married or anything like that…”

“Well”, said the Counselor, “may…

How to Avoid Arguments and Get Your Way

  • April 12th, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  2 Comments

A certain woman had a favorite author. The author wrote a new book, and the woman found out that the author was coming to her town to participate in a book signing at the local Walmart. The book signing was from 7 to 10pm. Her husband usually got home from work about 6:30, and her plan was to make dinner, start feeding the kids, a three and one year old, and then leave as soon as he came home. She hoped that if she got to the Walmart at 7pm, she could get out of there and get home in an hour or so.

When her husband came home that evening, he wasn’t too pleased with her plan. “I’ll just be gone for an hour or so”, said the woman. “Just feed the kids and play with them and I’ll be back as soon as I can.”

When the woman reached the Walmart and went inside, she saw that the line for the book signing stretched up the aisle and around the wall of the…

Interesting Information about Credit Cards and Mortgages

If you have any questions, comments or criticisms on this or any other topic, please feel free to let me know. It is easier for me to pick topics if I have your feedback. Thanks again for reading. I hope that you find a blessing here, and may the Lord be with you.

Let me start off by saying that I am not a financial advisor,  nor am I licensed to give financial advice. This blog is the result of a conversation that I had, and before you make any action based upon my advice,  I would advise you to talk to your lender.

I was talking to a employee of a credit card company today, and she gave me this information, which I hope is correct. I thought that it might be of interest to some of you. I’m using round numbers here for the purposes of clarity.

Suppose you owe a credit card company $1000, and you have a certain annual percentage rate (APR). Make up any APR you want.

Now, although your…

Fathers, protect your daughters and train your sons-in-law

This is an excerpt from my sermon of 3/21/10. You can read or listen to the entire sermon at

Ephesians 6:4:
4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.

And young men count on older men to be leaders. A father that lived in southern California had a daughter who was his pride and joy. She developed into a beautiful young woman that attracted the attention of a young man that seemed to be an upstanding fellow. After the young man graduated from high school, he got a job and began going to community college while courting the young lady. After a couple of years of working and going to school, the young man moved out of his parent’s home and rented an apartment. He invited his girlfriend to move in with him, and she came home to tell her Dad.

At first, Dad was uncertain as to what to do. He liked the young fellow, and…

A Selfish Reason to Avoid Abortion

  • March 8th, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  2 Comments

If you have any questions, comments or criticisms on this or any other topic, please feel free to let me know. It is easier for me to pick topics if I have your feedback. Thanks again for reading. I hope that you find a blessing here, and may the Lord be with you.

I recently came across a Facebook discussion concerning abortion. A woman, who was pregnant out of wedlock and who claimed to have a medical condition that made childbearing risky for her, posted a video blog as the abortifacient that she took to kill her unborn child was working. In her video blog, which she posted to communicate her experience to other women, she repeatedly said that the abortion was “not that bad” and that she was not feeling any discomfort.

In my sermon, The Biblical Design of Gender, Part 2, which is posted on my website, I discussed the issue of abortion. Let me excerpt my sermon for you in this blog entry.

Now, in Genesis 2:17:

How to make love grow stronger

  • March 1st, 2010 by Pastor Darryl Curtis   |  1 Comment

This blog entry is answering a question about my fourteenth sermon on the Biblical Design of Gender that Renee asked me, which was: “People want all this luvyduby stuff without the cost of conflict, but if you can come through the conflict, the love can and will grow stronger. Of course it has to be reasonable, not no dumb stuff like he punching me in the face or cheating on me. What are your thoughts on that for staying in the crucible??”

Renee – I believe that the Bible is an owner’s manual for interpersonal relationships. So let me try to explain that which I think God is saying.

God’s prime directive is for fruitful multiplication. That’s the first thing He tells us to do. (Genesis 1:28) God created men, and then He created women to facilitate multiplication (Genesis 2:22-23).

Women function differently than men, by God’s design. Women have a hormone in their endocrine systems called oxytocin. Oxytocin creates a psychological bond between a woman and the man with whom she has intimate physical…
