Fox news has noted a phenomenon of liberals who have “Taken the Red Pill” and given up on the fantasy world of liberalism.
I propose that there is another group of people living in the Matrix. Evangelicals who pretend that the normal erotic desire than men have had since Adam first spotted Even without her fig leaf. By pretending that there is such a thing as a Christian man who does not “lust” they live in a world in which the Bible has no relevance to the lives of the saints.
This is why the church men’s groups are all about “overcoming porn addictions” and “controlling sexual desires.” They are living in a fantasy world where a normal red-blooded man can have the brain of a woman. By demanding this, they are creating a church of firstly, few men, and secondly, hypocritical men. Men who are pretending that they aren’t “addicted” to sex.
Every time I see a youtube video of some preacher proclaiming how wrong it is to look at naked women, I reply “You are lying, you know and I know and every man knows that you watched porn THIS WEEK. Stop trying to lie to youself, us, and God. None of us are fooled.”
If we would admit this simple fact to ourselves, then we could read the Bible for what it actually says instead of what our Mama’s interpreted it to mean. Men are supposed to be sexual creatures. Like David we are supposed to enjoy the sight Bathsheba’s bathing beauty. But we are supposed to be men enough to direct that desire into Godly channels.
If we would fight the battle at the fortress of God’s commands, instead of man’s traditions, we might find that we would
Take the red pill.
