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

Be a wise conversationalist, not an interviewer

Scott recently posted on a comment from Elspeth on how a man came off as “interview-y” when getting to know a woman and on date. As someone with a decent amount of personal experience in the matter of vetting, there … Continue reading

Insecurity underlies the human condition and reveals our need for a Savior

I wanted to expand on Donal’s post Tissue Paper Walls. “Much of this insecurity comes from the gap in physical prowess between men and women. We men are much more capable of defending ourselves and imposing our will on our … Continue reading

Thoughts on wisdom and omniscience

One thing I’ve been mulling over more recently is human behavior and statistical probability. I’ve written on vetting and statistics before, so this was going more deeply into it. Statistical models tell us the probability that any random person exhibiting … Continue reading

The relationship issues that get in the way of following Christ

Still quite busy with RL work which is why I haven’t been posting much. Snapper has touched on a couple posts recently such as Belief versus Scripture. A while back, when I was going through the issues with my pastor, … Continue reading

Insulated

Donal’s post on Sympathy and Understanding talks about how married men tend to be insulated once they marry. Which drives me to the subject of this post- men shouldn’t expect much in the way of understanding from those around them … Continue reading

Most men are not afraid of commitment

I realized something when mulling over commitment. Most men are not afraid of commitment. The reality is that most men are afraid of a lack of commitment from women and the consequences thereof. It is pure projection from women. We … Continue reading

Why men aren’t eager missionaries

Dalrock critiqued this Piper article from the perspective of women, but I’m going to do it from the perspective of men. It starts off with this question submitted to Piper: So it’s no surprise, we get a lot of questions … Continue reading

Revisiting Matthew 5:27-28 on lust

There’s a lot of contextual background that goes into this verse. I’m going to try to explore all of it. Matthew 5:27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you … Continue reading

Economics, human nature, and contentment

I suppose I could have called this post something along the lines of analysis of capitalism and socialism/communism along with human nature and contentment. Whatever. Socialism’s problems are much more readily obvious than capitalism. Usually summarized as something along the … Continue reading

Complementarians believe that a wife can do no wrong

Still pretty busy, but still trying to get a post out or two. Hearkening back to complementarians are worse than egalitarians, a majority of Dalrock’s recent posts all harp on this theme: https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/11/25/the-roots-of-modern-christian-wife-worship/ https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/11/28/something-in-common/ https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/12/05/dr-russell-moore-wives-dont-sin-part-1/ https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/12/07/for-the-love-of-marital-strife/ https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/12/09/dr-russell-moore-wives-dont-sin-part-2/ https://dalrock.wordpress.com/2016/12/09/rubbing-body-parts-together/ The general … Continue reading Christianity and masculinity

Nationalists with a global agenda

Christians are nationalists, with a global agenda. Nationalists: John 15:31 Therefore when he had gone out, Jesus *said, “Now [d]is the Son of Man glorified, and God [e]is glorified in Him; 32 [f]if God is glorified in Him, God will … Continue reading

Non-standard political analysis

As the election draws near, some thoughts have popped up in my head. First, what I’ve been seeing out of a lot of the Christian community is to vote for platform and not candidates.
