    Default The strength to do the impossible

    With all that is going on in this country, it certainly gives one pause to think. The fact of the matter is that you can get the best training, have the best equipment, do everything by the book, and still die. The fact that I know that I have a home beyond the matrix gives me the strength to carry on despite anything thrown at me. We are facing not a battle of right or left, republican or democrat, but of good and evil. The time of the complacent Christian is over. We very well may be at the point which Christ spoke of when He said, if you do not have a sword, sell your garment and buy one. So be it. Seems most have forgotten, or choose to ignore, that Jesus took leather thongs, knotted them together and handled the money changers pretty effectively. We are to do the same. I once asked a question in Sunday School class, Is war evil? Of course I received the almost unanimous chorus of yes. I then replied that if all war is evil, how do you explain God's command to the Israelites upon entering the land of Caanan to destroy everything? I replied that such a statement was far above my pay grade. Confront evil with gusto, knowing that home is not far away.

    The uncomfortable answer is the simple one. Most modern social Christian men as big fat sissies.

    Hahaha...yep...soft in body and in mind, yet they like to refer to themselves as "Warriors."

    Wanted to add to this. IMHO, none of the Mighty Men that hung out with David would be welcomed at your typical socialized American church. And by socialized, I don't mean socialist...but simply made so politically correct and acceptable to everyone that the whole thing is turned into a lady's tea party.

    Men like to fight, they like to be strong, to be respected physically, to look at women, to say the occasional off color thing, and men enjoy hurting bad guys (whether in self defense or not). It seems the bulk of the socialized church in the USA has the goal to turn men into polite obedient ladies whose only mission is to work hard and provide, never drink or say the word "fuck", pray for the democrats, and never allow their eyes to wander to the yoga pants wearing crossfit chick's ass cheeks. And as long as they do that they are sure to go to heaven. Yeah...I know...but that is the image and ethos they create.

    Men do not want to be like that.

    We are in a cold civil war that is warming and will warm further as we pass the election and get into Trump's second term. Looking incessantly for justification of the modern necessary may really be looking for a reason to avoid doing just that. How about we simply be men - real men - do what is really required of men - and stop trying to be nicer, kinder, and more polite than God.

    Just my POV...I could be totally wrong.

    1 Cor 16:13. As applicable now as ever

    "Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong"

    As is Ecclesiastes 12:13

    "The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man."
    Be alert, stand firm in the faith, act like a man, be strong. Your every action must be done with love.
