“Well Jesus Christ, I’m not scared to die. I’m a little bit scared of what comes after. Do I get the gold chariot? Do I float through the ceiling?”
Make yourself worthy of what God has blessed you with.
I know this may seem hard.
Our tools, maybe capitalism itself, maybe technology itself, or maybe both in concert, work their very best to make us feel we are not worthy, make us want to question ourselves, our talents, encourage us to buy, buy more, eat, eat more, spend, spend more, repeat.
These are the days of miracle and wonder and you.
Yet you find yourself weak, maybe powerless, cowering, uncertain of how to be a man, maybe unworthy of, but that you can change, I promise.
If a woman cheats on you, leave her.
This is non-negotiable.
If you derive pleasure from being cheated on, work on yourself, get better, stronger, stand up, throw down, but if you can’t, leave, always.
In our current political climate, the term “cuck” — short for “cuckservative” — has become an insult of the so-called alt-right, aimed at men they view as spineless and emasculated. The slur has its roots in the concept of cuckolding, or having an adulterous partner.
But, according to a recent study by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller and the writer Dan Savage, acting on cuckolding fantasies can be a largely positive experience for many couples, and hardly a sign of weakness.
Don’t be this guy. This is weak. This is cowardly. This is a violation of your moral code, our moral code, and your masculinity.
Which you possess. It is a gift, you are blessed, do not toss this gift away, do not forget this.
Also, stop being powerless. Go without if you must until you gain power.
No, power is not anger.
You are always able to — and should always remain — decent, even at your most powerful.
The President’s press secretary asked for prayer for a dying girl, whom asked the President for prayers from everyone.
The request was instantly pilloried by emotional cockroaches.
The fear and hate and rage to react reveals powerlessness at scale, and shows how we must pray not just for this dying child, but for all of us.
More information than ever before, but you’re lost.
Maybe when you go without, also turn off.
The New York Times recently examined some of the many questions we have about God.
People may not share their doubts with friends, relatives, rabbis, pastors or imams. They inevitably share them with Google. Every year, in the United States, there are hundreds of thousands of pointed questions, most of them coming from the Bible Belt. The No. 1 question in the country is “who created God?” Second is why God allows suffering. This is the famous problem of evil. If God is all powerful and all good, how could he allow suffering? The third most-asked question is why does God hate me? The fourth is why God needs so much praise.
In the United States, there is more interest in heaven than in hell, at least based on searches. There are 1.5 times more searches for “heaven” than “hell,” 2.8 times as many searches asking what heaven looks like than what hell looks like, and 2.75 times as many searches asking whether heaven is real than whether hell is real.
If Alvin Tostig had a son today, I hope he would raise him strong and decent.
Every father should.
Back to you. Someone on the Internet told you that you could be strengthened by your wife having sexual relations with another man. False. You are being lied to. Find God. Find courage. Start at Google if you so choose, but that’s not necessary. Both God and courage always make themselves available to you.
