Mother’s Day in review

Little late to the party, but the previous Mother’s day my pastor actually just walked the congregation through the Scriptures. It was the first time I’ve seen that happen, ever, so I was impressed. Took a few notes on what … Continue reading

The questionability of eros

“Eros” as a Greek term isn’t found anywhere in the Scriptures. Every time I hear a Christian refer to how love in marriage is “eros” I somewhat get the inkling feeling that it’s questionable. Now, I suppose you could tie … Continue reading

Women don’t really understand male attraction and implications

TPC’s response to feminine beauty is highly controllable theory and analysis is interesting. Although there is the typical disdain for anything that men have to say about women (which is amusing to say the least), this seems to indicate that … Continue reading

Feminine beauty is highly controllable theory and analysis

I’ve linked to The Rules Revisited article on feminine beauty is highly controlled a couple of times. I think the premise of the article is good, but it doesn’t accurately quantify beauty all that well. Intro Donal and other sources … Continue reading

Imbalanced market forces

Donal’s post starts to explore this and this is a follow up to my previous post on revisiting the Christian marriage market. To distill the issues down, it usually always comes down to two different things, which are typically categorized … Continue reading

Engagement and marriage

Engagement and marriage are two separately defined concepts in the Scripture which are most interesting to study. “Dates” and “Dating” and “Courtship” don’t exist. They’re made up. It’s not that these concepts are “bad” in any meaning of the word, … Continue reading
