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

Suffering is the price of reconciliation

Been super busy this Thanksgiving season and will likely also be in the Christmas, so probably won’t be able to post much still. 2 Corinthians discusses about how Christ commits us to the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore … Continue reading

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

Kindness versus niceness

One of the things that I have struggled with and many men I know struggle with is the difference between kindness and niceness. These two things are not the same thing, and getting them confused often leads men down an … Continue reading

The cult of diversity

Going back to the earlier post on miscegenation and sanctification and Nova’s excellent post here, it bears repeating that diversity is one of the moral tenets of liberalism and progressivism. This is why you see much backlash in the election, … Continue reading

Non-standard political analysis

This will probably be my last politically oriented post. In a couple of interesting election stats, I posted that 94% of evangelicals, 88% of mainline Protestants, and 81% of Catholics would vote for Trump over Clinton. In general, the “most” … Continue reading

Politics

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. Democratic: https://www.demconvention.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Democratic-Party-Platform-7.21.16-no-lines.pdf Republican: https://prod-static-ngop-pbl.s3.amazonaws.com/media/documents/DRAFT_12_FINAL%5B1%5D-ben_1468872234.pdf If you … Continue reading

The lie of parenting

There is no such thing as parenting. Only fathering and mothering. I think Wintery Knight had a recent post on this as well. The statistical studies on this are interesting. I’ve commented on this before, but I don’t think I’ve … Continue reading

What does it mean to teach?

I’ve gone over women not teaching in Church before among several posts touching on the topic, but some recent posts like Snapper‘s and Dalrock‘s would be good to go over as well. Generally speaking, to understand what it means to … Continue reading

Lessons from Ephesus

Generally speaking, the Church at Ephesus presents an interesting timeline of the early Church given that a decent sized chunk of NT Scriptures are directed toward it. The reason for this is two of the pastoral letters were written to … Continue reading

Christian marriage components

I’ve been viewing this discussion on the components of Christian marriage on Donal’s post. The fact that we have to call it “Christian marriage” in the first place is bad. Marriage is created by God and defined by God. Hence, … Continue reading

Grace, mercy, and Christian perception of sin

One of the things that irks me about the modern necropolis (e.g. churchianity) is the reference to innocence and flawlessness — I’m looking at you MercyMe, although they are not the only Christian band to do this — in regard … Continue reading

A man’s take on potentially dating or marrying a woman with a past
