Is There A Screamer In The House?
(Click onto the above link to see the video and other posts.)

19 Talk with each other much about the Lord, quoting psalms and hymns and singing sacred songs, making music in your hearts to the Lord. 20 Always give thanks for everything to our God and Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

21 Honor Christ by submitting to each other. 22 You wives must submit to your husbands’ leadership in the same way you submit to the Lord. 23 For a husband is in charge of his wife in the same way Christ is in charge of his body the Church. (He gave his very life to take care of it and be its Savior!)24 So you wives must willingly obey your husbands in everything, just as the Church obeys Christ.

25 And you husbands, show the same kind of love to your wives as Christ showed to the Church when he died for her, 26 to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and God’s Word; 27 so that he could give her to himself as a glorious Church without a single spot or wrinkle or any other blemish, being holy and without a single fault. 28 That is how husbands should treat their wives, loving them as parts of themselves. For since a man and his wife are now one, a man is really doing himself a favor and loving himself when he loves his wife! 29-30 No one hates his own body but lovingly cares for it, just as Christ cares for his body the Church, of which we are parts.

31 (That the husband and wife are one body is proved by the Scripture, which says, “A man must leave his father and mother when he marries so that he can be perfectly joined to his wife, and the two shall be one.”) 32 I know this is hard to understand, but it is an illustration of the way we are parts of the body of Christ.

33 So again I say, a man must love his wife as a part of himself; and the wife must see to it that she deeply respects her husband—obeying, praising, and honoring him. (Ephesians 5:19-33, Living Bible)

Nothing in the above passage identifies “screaming,” individually or as a “two-some,” as being a way to strengthen a marriage. Click onto the following link and watch the full Fire Proof movie (Courtesy of Trinity Broadcasting Network). Look for yourself. Are you Caleb? Are you Catherine?

As part of my tenth grade speech class training, I was taught to: 1. Tell ’em what you’re gonna tell ’em. 2. Tell ’em. 3. Tell ’em what you told ’em. Parts 1 and 2 have been taken care of for this post. Now, here comes part three. The following link is: “tell ’em what you told ’em.” (Please forgive “em,” it helps to quicken speech.) Remember Ephesians 5:33.

    1. We’ve all heard the question. “is there a doctor in the house?” In those times of crises, a doctor is summoned to heal things are physically or emotionally “broken.” In the sense of “is there a screamer in the house,” such a person is one who destroys the totality of a spouse who may be in dire need of supportive care when their marriage is broken and is falling to pieces. The screaming scene in the movie is one that I have viewed many times. But, I have not used it as an “attention getter” because of its hostility. Quite frankly, because the movie was directed toward Christian families, I have been embarrassed to “air our dirty laundry” in the front yard of the world. But, so much emotional and physical abuse is present in today’s marriages, Christian and non-Christian, I thought that it was a good decision to do such “airing of dysfunction.” The title, “Is There A Screamer In The House,” has been a thought that I have had for quite some time. Why did I choose that title? I will have to say that God’s Holy Spirit placed the thought in my mind. Thanks for your question. May our Lord Jesus richly bless you.


  1. I so believe your post, I only wish I could’ve seen my marriage through or something could’ve changed. I knew if I had gone back this last time it would’ve been the same, so many promises I had over the years. I would’ve curled up and died slowly. But I do believe what you wrote, I saw fireproof during the past and it was heart wrenching.

    1. Please know how sorry I am for the things of your past marriage. I trust that other married couples will realize the danger that lies beneath the veneer of unreasonable and unhealthy “discussion.” Thanks for sharing. May our Lord Jesus richly bless you.
