Dr. Russell Moore: Wives don’t sin (part 2)

Russell Moore was of course one of the evangelical leaders who said Christians ought not to vote for Trump…

 2 But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. 3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

–1 Cor 7:2-5,  ESV

In the Daily Mail piece I linked to yesterday many of the ten signs it is time to dump your man are actually bad behavior on a wife’s part.  Sign number two is the wife becomes…

Dr. Russell Moore: Wives don’t sin (part 1)

Typical Russell Moore; moving the SBC ever leftward…

Dalrock

Dr. Russell Moore explains at FamilyLife the key to avoiding infidelity in marriage*:

It’s been said that the best defense is a good offense. Russell Moore says that when it comes to maintaining marital fidelity, a wife’s best defense may well be to move into her husband’s life with hard questions and a loving presence to open up the dialogue about marital fidelity – before the affair happens.

Note that in the FamilyLife summary above, the temptation to sin only affects husbands.  In the beginning of the segment Moore does briefly reference premarital counseling where he has both the husband and wife write out how they would be tempted to cheat, but for the rest of the program the presumption is that only husbands are tempted by sexual sin.

Dr. Moore describes a situation where his wife’s radar went up:

Early on, in ministry—serving a church—we had a young…

New study: the majority (69%) of divorces are initiated by women

No surprise…

WINTERY KNIGHT

Is it OK to tell women they are wrong? Is this “I’ll do what I want” attitude compatible with life-long married love?

This new report from Live Science gives us some numbers about who initiates divorces most frequently.

It says:

Women are more likely than men to initiate divorce in the United States, but they are no more likely than men to initiate breakups in a dating relationship, a new study finds.

“The breakups of nonmarital heterosexual relationships in the U.S. are quite gender-neutral and fairly egalitarian,” study author Michael Rosenfeld, an associate professor of sociology at Stanford University, said in a statement. “This was a surprise because the only prior research that had been done on who wanted the breakup was research on marital divorces.”

Previous research had found that women are more likely to initiate divorce, at least in the United States, Europe and Australia. In the new study, Rosenfeld compared divorces to nonmarital breakups, in an effort…

Great Man versus social forces

Happy belated Thanksgiving / Happy Black Friday to my American friends, by the way. Hope you’re enjoying the holiday, and salty prog tears around your family dinner tables.😉

In thinking about the recent American election results, I got to thinking of the old argument in historian circles over the Great Man view of history versus social forces.

Must we even frame it as one or the other?

Why can’t it be both, that drive history?

I submit that in the case of the Donald, it was both.

Yes, Trump is a walking ego with a larger than life persona who set out to achieve the improbable and did it.

But what he did was win an election, which requires millions to vote the same way.

And so they did, in spite of everyone telling them not to – the media, the entertainment industry, academia, politicians, Christian leaders, etc.

I submit that while Great Men make history, so do movements. Not sure, in terms of elections, that the two can be untangled from each other.

The moment when it was clear a sea change had occurred

Back in August:

That’s right; at the Hillary rally in which she decided to name and shame the ‘alt-right’, someone in her audience yelled, ‘Pepe!‘ when she did so.🙂

 

The Malevolent Banality Of The Anti-White Left, In One Word

Double standard…

Chateau Heartiste

White Americans won’t put up with this bullshit much longer. The anti-White Equalist Left knows this, which is why they won’t relent on pushing for open borders and mass nonWhite colonization of America. If the leftoids can demographically displace Whites and thus disenfranchise them from the country their ancestors built, the Left won’t have to answer for their crimes against heritage America. They’ll simply crow victoriously behind an impenetrable phalanx of brown and black shock troops.

If the Left loses their precious open borders and mass nonWhite repopulation, they are staring down the business end of a noose. So don’t expect them to give up on their globohomo dream easily; their survival is tied up with your dispossession.
