Committing To Your Spouse

You know, I can’t help but write more about the issue of marriage. Marriage is under such an assault by social media, namely the Internet, that it’s hard not to look around, and take notice of the devastation that it’s causing. You see people that you’ve known for many years, and have been happily married for many years, and bam! Just like that, everything crashes, and you really feel bad for them, because it comes as a shock knowing their profession, and the kind of life that they lived. And it just breaks your heart.

The kind of theory that I have, that explains why many marriages fail, goes something like this. Do keep in mind though, that this is just my opinion, and is not necessarily the crux of the matter, entirely.

It can go both ways…

When a man is finally on his own, he gets married, and has children, he has to have a job to help support his family, and have nice things for his family. At this point in his life he becomes vulnerable to a woman outside of his marriage, because in today’s society, whether single or married, many women are looking to satisfy themselves through new experiences with other men outside of their marriage, or non-marital relationship. These women are the worldly women, and they are keeping there eyes on successful men, which appeal to them. See, there are the Virtuous women, and then there are those women who are the opposite of virtuous (take Pamela Anderson for example), a woman of vice, who has no self-control. As a Christian man, he must guard himself against such women, to keep himself from the sin of adultery. Because he hurts himself and his spouse when he does not stay committed to her. The only pure bed is the marriage bed.

Another scenario plays out with the wife. Wives must also guard themselves against men who want to entice them out of their marital sexual relations. There are men out there who are wealthy, well-to-do for themselves, who offer not only their bodies, but their wealth to unsuspecting women. Wives, you must guard yourselves against such men who are eager to pull you away, and defile you in their beds. You destroy your image, and you hurt your husband when you do not remain faithful to him.

These things come about because spouse, both men and women do not put on the whole armor of God, spoke about in the book of Ephesians, when the apostle Paul was a prisoner…

Ephesians 6:10-20

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

The problem, and there is the solution. For you ladies out there, there’s a good book you can read, it’s called ‘Passion & Purity’ – ‘Learning to bring your love life under Christ’s control’

I’m not a lady, but I have read the book, and I have to say it’s kind of sad in one way, because she describes her relationship with a man, and the many difficulties she went through to finally getting able to walk down the aisle. But, I think it will strengthen a woman’s resolve to staying committed to your husband. And the men to their wives, too.

I wrote this today, because of some friends from a long time ago. It’s not to say that adultery and marital problems are rare, no, they are very common problems in our society. I just want to bring to realization that the family is under attack, and we all need to come together to solve these problems, because family is the pillar by which nations are built upon.

    “because family is the pillar by which nations are built upon.”

    Which is why progtardia is hammering it at every point. They do not believe in nations. The Nation must be replaced by the one party unistate with unka sugar at the helm.

    Do not believe me? Just look what ghetto culture, free shit, and abortion has done for the Black Family in America.

      Yes, to this we entirely agree on, Tim. The proof is in the pudding that government programs that facilitate in taking from the rich to supply the poor do not work. When you are given everything that you own, and you don’t work for it…in this case, the government taking other peoples money (OPM) then you create an entitlement mentality.

      What’s interesting is how, not only do the black community have an entitlement mentality, but they believe that their life should supersede that of other races in America. For instance, a white man goes into a convenience station, is waiting in line, and the black boy at the counter is hitting on the girl behind the counter, is taking up the clerks, as well as the customers time, and well, the white man waiting to pay for his gasoline, says “Okay boy, you’ve talked long enough to her, now let me in there to pay my gas” and well,” and the black boy fires back, “You got a problem with me Whitey?” The black boy is arrogant in the fact that he feels he is privileged to do as he pleases, he feels like he is above the rest of society, that his time should matter more than others time, that his heartbeat should matter more than others in society, that his words should hold more weight than everybody elses in society, that he is entitled to a family without have to support the family he’s created. ALL because of his skin color.

      Communist philosophy, when put into practice, uses race privilege, and entitlement mentality like that to destroy countries to bring it under communist rule, so that, as you put it Unka Sugar can erect a communist flag over the White House.

      In my view, in order to stop the growth of communism, to keep it from seizing power in this country it’s not going to be by election, but by revolution. The only means necessary which was wrote about in the Declaration of Independence.

        The Declaration…

        When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

        We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

        He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

        He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

        He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

        He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

        He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

        He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

        He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

        He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

        He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

        He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

        He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

        He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

        He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

        For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

        For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

        For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

        For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

        For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

        For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

        For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

        For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

        For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

        He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

        He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

        He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

        He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

        He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

        In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

        Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

        We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

        For instance, a white man goes into a convenience station, is waiting in line, and the black boy at the counter is hitting on the girl behind the counter, is taking up the clerks, as well as the customers time, and well, the white man waiting to pay for his gasoline, says “Okay boy, you’ve talked long enough to her, now let me in there to pay my gas” and well,” and the black boy fires back, “You got a problem with me Whitey?” The black boy is arrogant in the fact that he feels he is privileged to do as he pleases, he feels like he is above the rest of society, that his time should matter more than others time, that his heartbeat should matter more than others in society, that his words should hold more weight than everybody elses in society, that he is entitled to a family without have to support the family he’s created. ALL because of his skin color.

        There is both a circular logic and a blindness to rights here in this scenario. We, Ourselves see this as equal parties both invoking their rights to time and events. Neither are right or wrong in their actions. In your scenario the white man waiting to pay for petrol should be granted a space of privilege because his time is more valuable, in your opinion than that of the black young man. What if the person at the counter was an elderly white woman chatting with the desk clerk and a black man was waiting for his petrol and became frustrated with his delay? Is he required to defer to her age and gender or should he demand to not have his time wasted? This is an interesting object lesson.

        Majordomo Pain,
        Well, first of all, the differences in the two scenarios are quite striking. For starters, the scenario I provided come from a true account, based on the story of a person I know, who had this exchange with the black boy.

        Now, you make an assumption based upon a false premise when you think that in my opinion, the white man’s time is “valued more” than the black mans, not true. We’re talking about a place of business here, and the clerk has a job to do, her job is to take care of her customers, so her time is valuable, and should not be taken up by people who have other plans for her.

        Lastly, the assumption that the elderly white woman would see her time as more valuable than the black man’s behind her is based on false pretenses, for the fact, that, I believe most elderly white people would, in turn, say “Oh, excuse me, go ahead!” And, of course, the black man pay for his gas, and be on his merry way.

        There are many mannerly, polite people in the world, but they are growing fewer by the day because of the liberal entitlement mentality that has pervaded society, in particular within the black community. This idea that the blacks of society should somehow be more “privileged” is going to have to stop!

        majordumbo….

        The observation is not your stuck on stupid talking points but about the prevailing attitude of some in our culture.
        The black boy was hired and PAID to do a job which has specific duties,part of those duty’s is customer satisfaction.
        To make a paying customer stand there while you are BSing and hitting on some chick is a complete violation of the job. It is not only extremely rude it is equal to pissing on ones shoes and total disrespect.
        The surley snap back of “you got a problem whitey”? is equal to the customer barking “hey NIGGER lets go there”…..
        This ebonic speaking, disrespectful,uneducated, racist, POS should have been fired on the spot.
        and YES there is a very good probability the customers time is more valuable than the hood rats.I see this attitude and rudeness every day from convenience stores , fast food restaurants, to gas stations and 99.9% of the time is haughty black women or skanky black dudes…
        When working we charge $85.00 per hour for our labor.The time spent getting a sandwich or getting gas is unbillable time, therefore standing around while some asshole BS cost our business money, in turn we would most likely go to another establishment which in turn costs the gas station money.Eventually the black kid will lose his job and of course it will have been the greedy white devils fault.

    Agreed the family is the glue that holds the community, and the nation together……that is why the homosexual agenda, abortion, and promiscuity are so dangerous.
    Also is why the left (communism) is pushing these so hard.
    Now add the evils of islam into the mix and you have the devils brew for disaster…

      Right on, Neo! Our country is in trouble, and we need really badly to get it back on track!

      Is there someone who can lead the way? We need someone who will go before the throngs of people, a strong leader, one like George Washington, and say…”Our country is in trouble! I’m here today to ask you…are you ashamed of the name of Jesus Christ? Should faith become so personal and private that we forget who our blessings come from? was Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross at Calvary all done in vain? We came to this country to escape the tyranny that would push our families and our faith underground, and out of sight, while others could be led into a life of vice. At this stage in our country, our faith, and our values are not a personal issue, they are a national issue. Our civil laws have turned away from justice, to laws that allow injustice to flourish. Our families are broken because of a lack of values being taught in our schools. God and our values that brought us to this country have been shoved out of our schools, and therefore, the generation growing up do not know how to raise a family properly. Our government has become a government that is not for the people, but a government that steals for unjust gain, that rigs elections, and goes behind the American peoples backs, conspiring against them. Evil! Is the word for our government. This is not the government or country that our Forefathers envisioned, I’m prepared to lead the fight in changing it, but I’m going to need your help to change it! Rome wasn’t built in a day, so we have to work together as One people, under one goal, to Bring It Back! Under the authority and provision of Almighty God! Thank you!”

      Something is going to have to be done! I don’t know who’s going to lead, there may not be a leader, our country may acquiesce to the ever growing evils of today’s society until it is plundered by barbarians of some other nation! I just don’t know! But if people don’t wake up very, very soon it’s very likely to happen that way!

        when we “elect” a man who is a self described communist, an admitted drug user, a known homosexual, a pure racist, and documented muslim foreigner we get what we paid for… a cheap suit full of evil and lies.
