Advice to Gene Simmons Part 7, (“Tip Tuesday Part C)jh17a



Gene Simmons Family Jewels

The series I have been doing on “Advice to Gene Simmons” that I am starting what I am calling “Tip Tuesday.” For the next few months we will be looking at the Simmons family.

In the July 19th episode  Nick said to his father “You were a great father but not a good spouse.” Sophie went even farther and said that Gene “was not a good dad.” Both of these clips were repeated in this week’s episode on July 26th.

The pain of finding out that her father had lied to her about being faithful to their mother really must have hurt Sophie  in a tremendous way.

In the message that Brandon Barnard brought to Fellowship Bible Church on July 24th he made a big point out of what the pathway of impurity is like. THE PATHWAY OF IMPURITY IS WOUNDING AND DISHONORING. Then Brandon read these verses:

Proverbs 6:32-33

English Standard Version (ESV)

32He who commits adultery lacks sense;
   he who does it destroys himself.
33He will get wounds and dishonor,
   and his disgrace will not be wiped away.


Here above you see that Gene Simmons has been told to his face by his daughter that he was not a good dad. She was deeply hurt by her father’s unfaithfulness to her mother.


Husbands, Take Care of Your Homes (John MacArthur)

Uploaded by on Sep 10, 2010 … Men, what if your employer described you in an annual review as “passive, indifferent, and irresponsible”? Without a radical change in attitude and behavior, you’d find yourself looking for another job. If you can’t get away with it at work, why would you think it’s okay to slough off at home? The sad reality is that many husbands—though willing to work hard and expend great energy in the workplace, at recreation, or even with hobbies and leisure—many act like indolent teenagers at home, shirking their responsibilities toward their wives and children.

In today’s selection, John takes a baseball bat to the world’s version of manhood, and shows from Ephesians 5 what real manliness looks like. Here’s a bottom line: True manhood starts and ends in the home. Husbands, listen to the whole clip (wives, make sure they do it!).

Gentlemen, now that you’ve heard this for yourselves, ask your wife to listen and then do a little exercise. Ask your wife to rate your performance in the workplace on a scale of 1-10 (1 is a low score, 10 is high). Then ask her to rate your performance in the home, as a husband and as a father. After that, if you dare, come back to the comment thread ( and let’s discuss what we’ve learned. It might be painful, but that’s okay—no pain, no gain, right?
