That’s Good, I Guess Newt takes no-adultery pledge

 

It’s not that I approve of Newt’s infidelity. I do not. However, he says he has repented of it. Rush has been married thrice, and folks still listen to him. He, Newt, is without a doubt a flawed man. However, and here’s the thing, he leads. He has a plan. He knows how to work the dirty system in Washington to achieve his goals, which are good goals. He is, I think, our best remaining option. The alternative is Romney, a milksop, poll-minding, namby pamby RINO from Massachusetts. We don’t need to get along right now. We need a firebrand. We need a guy who can enter the fray on our behalf and engage in some good old political butt-kicking. Our country is broken. I think Newt is the best chance we have of fixing it. Beyond the no-adultery pledge, it’s the other things he says in the letter that are captivating, and which I whole-heartedly support. In contrast, I think Romney says what he thinks he has to say to gain political favor.

 

It’s like one of my heroes, Teddy Roosevelt, said, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Or, as he also said more succinctly, “The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.”

 

America Needs a Hero. Athletes Used to Be Heroes Once. Why Tebow? Why Now?

 

Wickedness hates virtue. I think the country is swinging to the right again, like it did after Carter. We have had our fill of the sewage introduced during the 90s and going forward into the 00s. It’s just too costly. Virtue is an ideal, yes. But it’s never wrong to have ideals. It may be hard, humanly, to always attain them, but you keep trying. They are worth reaching for. Good for you, Tebow! (Wow, never thought I’d find myself rooting for the Broncos)

The Damnable Non-Doctrine of Legalism How Creepy Conservative Christian Modesty Doctrines Harm Young Women

 

It should be noted, this woman grew up under the cultic teachings of William Branham. He was a complete whackjob, who, among other things, taught that women are the root of all sin because Eve seduced Adam. Fornication was the original sin, and therefore women are second-class citizens. I know this because I have to deal with these nutbars on the mission field here in Uganda.

 

That said, it is also applicable among Independent Baptists, whose strange, man-following teachings are often extra-biblical, and more cultural than Scriptural. Not all Independent Baptists are like this, not even most are (I'm not, and I'm an Independent Baptist), but it is strongly advocated by certain pressure groups within our so-called "Independent" collective, mostly within the orbit of certain Type A personalities with large congregations and hence large platforms for the dissemination of their opinions.

 

Unfortunately, "conservative" tends to mean "developed in the 70s or the 50s, which is where we ought to live". I agree that much about today's pop culture is not Godly, but we shouldn't be caustic and reactionary, and we certainly should not find ourselves pushing the traditions of men on our women and passing it off as Bible. It's chauvinistic, it's unscriptural, and it does not glorify God. All legalism ever does is create more sin, and bring free Christians into bondage once again to the law. It has to stop.
