Guest: Jo Berry
First Peter 3 counsels Christian wives of unbelieving husbands to win them to the faith through their purity and reverence rather than simply with words. Easier said than done. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the late Jo Berry, who was a lecturer, Bible study teacher, and faithful wife, clarifies that this is not a strict prohibition from ever talking about God or church activities. Berry acknowledges that a wife should not try to nag her husband into Heaven. If she allows her Christian witness to do the "talking," God can use her faithfulness to convert her husband.
A Christian wife married to an unbelieving husband has to walk a tightrope. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Jo Berry, a favorite guest of Dr. Dobson for many years, shares lessons from her book Beloved Unbeliever: Loving Your Husband into the Faith. On one hand, Jo says a wife should not participate with her husband in any activities prohibited by Scripture such as getting drunk or viewing porn. On the other hand, she warns the Christian wife against flaunting her spirituality, becoming dogmatic, or disrespecting her husband. One thing is indisputable: a wife should not hesitate to disciple the kids in the ways of the Lord.
