  Not one upright woman.
Posted by: Brett - 07-26-2020, 08:13 AM - Forum: Love & relationships... - Replies (4)

There is a book called Ecclesiastes. The author is unknown. But he reveals he was a king and from his writing some believe through his wisdom that he was king Solomon.

Although the book devastates the mans ego and has many truths, here is one precious part that many probably overlook.

Ecclesiastes 7: 27 - 29
Look, says the teacher, this is what I have discovered:
Adding one thing to another to discover the scheme of things. While I was still searching, but not finding
I found one upright man among a thousand,
But not one upright woman among them all.

This only have I found:
God made mankind upright, but men have gone in search of many schemes.

So there we have it. This God fearing wise king searching for some meaning to life cannot find one upright woman. 

By upright we know it implies something along the lines of worthy, righteous, good, etc.

So more than 2000 years before the red pill movement even began we see the bible has already stated it all.

Not only that but read one verse before that:
Ecclesiastes 7: 26 

I find more bitter than death, the woman who is a snare, and whose heart is a trap, and who's hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare.

Obviously referring to the wayward wife, strange woman, women who don't fear God.

We go back to the first book - Genesis. The devil or the serpent didn't even bother going to Adam, he went straight to Eve. He deceived her and then she went to Adam, who by record wasn't deceived, but willfully disobeyed.

We discover how important our role as men is when we understand that we were intended to be the heads of the family and the leaders. God blessed every one of us men by creating us in his image.

God himself always has been referred to in the masculine. Thats how important this feature is. Hence the modern day degenerate lie - being 'gender fluid' straight from the serpent.

Jesus being God came in the form of a man. 

As men this bears far more significance than we realise.

  How you are supposed to meet women
Posted by: Loverboy - 07-24-2020, 07:07 AM - Forum: Love & relationships... - Replies (4)

I am standing here and wondering what to do next.

What is the culture's prescription for how you are supposed to meet women, in a setting where women themselves want to do the same thing and they do not find it weird, tiresome, invasive, or sexually harassive?

Am I supposed to approach women on the street or gym? (I have only done this minimally without any success, is this what I am supposed to start?)
Am I supposed to approach women in bars and clubs? (they tell you to do the things you already enjoy anyway, but I dislike bars and clubs, am I supposed to start going there anyway?)
Am I supposed to match women in online dating? (this has been my main attempted method, but it has not worked - is it because I need to get professional pictures and/or start paying for the services?)
Am I supposed to attract women through some kind of apex antisocial media presence? (I do not have such a presence)
Am I supposed to meet women who are already acquaintances of my acquaintances? (I do not have any acquaintance group)
Am I supposed to meet women through hobby groups? (my hobbies don't contain women)
Am I supposed to meet women who work or study with me? (I would have to wait until the university campus starts in early september, assuming the women still choose the school's campus option instead of adjusted online option due to corona)

Or are you supposed to not try to meet women and simply leave any development or lack thereof completely to chance?

What am I supposed to do? What personal attributes do I need to do "that", and how should I methodically accomplish "it"?

  A wife of noble character
Posted by: Brett - 07-23-2020, 06:54 PM - Forum: Love & relationships... - Replies (3)

Proverbs 31: 10 - 31

A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies.

Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

She brings him good, not harm, All the days of her life.

She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

She is like the merchant ships bringing her food from afar.

She gets up while it is still night. She provides food for her family. And portions for her female servants.

She considers a field and buys it. Out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She sets about her work vigorously. Her arms are strong for her tasks.

She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.

In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

When it snows, she has no fear for her household for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

She makes coverings for her bed. She is clothed in fine linen and purple.

Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat amongst the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.

She is clothed with strength and dignity. She can laugh at the days to come.

She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her:

“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all".

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

  Conviction
Posted by: Brett - 07-23-2020, 12:51 PM - Forum: Love & relationships... - Replies (25)

Dear truthseeker and fellow readers,

I want to share a story. 

Where to begin. I will start at the beginning although I will not be able to provide alot of detail in one singular post - I will try though. 
Firstly, whether you believe in God or his Son Jesus Christ is not the 'moral of this story' or the aim to convert you. This is not a debate for an argument that God exists. With that said I will proceed.

I was baptsed into christ as a baby. I mention this because I now believe with all my heart and based on scripture that we are the clay and the Lord is the potter. Predestination is biblical once you understand the scripture. The book of Romans made this clear to me. For those that know scripture - Mathew 11, Ephesians 1 and 2, Romans 8 - 10, John 6, Revelations 13, and many more places in the bible.

However even though I visited church frequently from my youth to young adulthood - I have lived a sinful life. I was a slave to sin. My thoughts betrayed me everday.

I rejected Gods word through my actions and I was led down a path of darkness - narcissism, apathy, sexual lust, pornography, dispair, anxiety, depression, anger outbursts, rage, hopelessness, depravity, egotistical ambition, jealousy, short tempered, gossip and other sinful behaviours.

I rejected advice and abandoned teaching from my father and mother. My last 25 years have been 25 years of sin. From primary school to high school to college to young adult hood.

Up until recently I was having a sexual relationship with a woman 20 years older than me. I met her when she was staying with another man who was a married man and also had another mistress on the side.

This woman I was seeing then left him and his (their apartment) after a emotional break up. She is a broken woman and has shared with me a lifetime of hurt and brokenness. She has had many sexual partners in her lifetime. As a beautiful woman she has led a very sinful life in the flesh.

I met her and we created a relationship. This took place almost one year ago when I first met her. We would meet up to engage in sexual activites and have sex. We also confided in each other and shared many things. This has been going on up until last weekend. 

We developed a friendship and caring for one another as a result. However because it was sex outside of marriage and lust of the flesh it started to eat away at me (even though I had already lost my sexual purity before meeting her).

A friend of mine referred me to Proverbs and about the wayward wife/woman and that is when it started to eat away at me drastically and very quickly. That night after reading Proverbs I could barely sleep. 

I have as mentioned grown up 'christian' and with a christian mother. I am not a stranger to the bible or the christian faith and its religion. However spiritually I was dead as many christians are (many).

I remembered sleeping with a married woman, and sleeping with a prostitute. It tore me apart that night. I read the words of King Solomon from his book Proverbs and I realised I was the foolish young man he speaks of.

I was convicted. Like never before. 

Last night I met up with the woman I had been seeing. I told her I can no longer be a slave to sin. She was already crying before I met up with her as she could sense in my text message that something was not right. It moved me and I held her (She was distraught). We spoke for hours and I told her that I can no longer disobey God my father. I told her I have been convicted through his word. How his word has changed me (being pulled slowly and now drastically).

(prior to this I had been being pulled to his word and was slowly having spiritual chains taken off me - playstation addiction, watching frequent degenerate movies, pornography addiction, and degenerate music addiction).

Last night she was very emotional and we debated certain topics because she rejects the bible and considers it to be mans teaching and not Gods. I asked her if she loves me and she told me she does not but she cares for me. I told her the same. I then explained to her that sex is to be between a husband and wife. Its supposed to be sacred between two people who love each other (of opposite sex). As it says in Genesis - a man shall leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

I told her I would be here to support her as she told me she is very vulnerable as she has no other friend in the city besides me. I told her I would pray about this and ask for guidance, but I could no longer disobey God and his teaching.

Our sexual relationship is over. I made that clear to her. She does not fear God and she is not my wife nor I her husband. 

But since I care for her and she for me I promised her I would not abandon her. I will continue to minister to her as best I can and go for walks with her on the beach and share friendship with her. 

I believe God has drawn me and convicted me. These chains that held me down he has lifted off me. I felt immense guilt and shame for what I had done and I have been so hungry for Gods word I have been reading it everyday (something I had never done before). Although throughout my life seeking truth - a hunger never satisfied that even led me to curse at God out of frustration. 

I am prepared to be ridiculed and mocked. But I care not.
 
God is just, God is righteous and God is sovereign.

Galatians 6:7-10

"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the spirit, from the spirit will reap eternal life".

Hebrews 4:12-13
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of our heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

  Pete Hartwig Another BS Artist
Posted by: All Natural - 06-28-2020, 12:13 PM - Forum: Natty Or Not - Replies (2)

While checking out YouTube for natural bodybuilding, I came across two videos of Pete Hartwig. He claims to be 100% natural, the winner of the natural Mr. Olympia, and passing drug tests that he paid for during off season. He clearly looks off cycle during this video, but check him out on stage. No way he is natural. The second video is a short documentary of him progressing over several years. I still cannot understand why these bodybuilders just don't admit to taking PEDs.

What are your thoughts on Jason Gallant? He claims several natural titles, including 2nd place in the Natural Mr. Olympia. Take a look at his photos and videos. Do you think he has ever used steroids based on his photos?

  Evidence based fitness is a scam
Posted by: Templar - 06-03-2020, 07:36 PM - Forum: Natty Or Not - Replies (10)

Evidence based fitness gurus remind me of PUAs. They are both targeting a very specific population of men - the men who are "enlightened", who think they are not bluepilled anymore and now they are going to use scientific methods and psychology to approach and seduce women or on the other side men who know about fake natties and steroids, but they are going to get big and jacked by using science. It's funny, Greg The Bullshitter Nuckols even has a site called Stronger By Science.

What's even funnier is that 99% of evidence based gurus are either former or current juicers. Or intermittent. But they are all about science and scientific methods of training and they are going to help you reach your goals, just subscribe to their newsletter or buy their programs. As I said they are targeting the smarter part of fitness population but in the end it's all bullshit.

Let me ask you one thing - how did Eugen Sandow and Bobby Pandour build their physiques? No hormones, no calorie and macronutrient counting, no scientific methods of training and yet they look better than most gym members today. What does that tell you? Building muscle and losing fat is not a rocket science. But evidence based gurus want to make a science out of it. Why? Because then they have something to sell you.

Now another question - how do you think pro bodybuilders get to the Olympia stage? I mean, you may like them or not, but they are the best of the best when it comes to dieting and building muscles. Do they use scientific methods? "But they are on drugs!" Yes, and that's the point, you should focus on things that have a big impact on human body, not on some non important shit. And I had delusional guys who said to me "But they would be bigger if they use science!". Really? I mean, yeah, not using scientific training is why they can't grow anymore... I remember in Generation Iron there was a plot with Ben Pakulski and Branch Warren, Pakulski was like optimal range of motion, optimal exercises, blah blah blah and Warren trained like a moron. Guess who won... Now, I am not defending pro bodybuilders because they have their own bro stories which they use to cover the fact that they built their bodies with good genetics and drugs and not with some special training techniques, but they are just an example of why all that science shit doesn't matter. And if you want to prep for Mr. Olympia, would you hire some science based guru or Chris Aceto?

Let me be clear, I am not saying that scientific studies are useless. Thanks to them we know that a lot of supplements are garbage, although science was also used to support those products at the same time, and we know a thing or two about training and nutrition, but they are not something that people should be obsessed over. And we have exactly that - people in evidence based fitness forums and facebook groups are jacking off on scientific studies and arguing about things that aren't gonna make a difference in the end.

Just to give you a few examples, let's say you see a study that says whey protein causes bigger elevation in MPS than meat. Ok, so what? So now you are somehow going to be bigger because of that? Or my favorite one - MPS is elevated only 48h after training so you should hit your muscles more often. Ok, and how is that going to help you if your body, joints and CNS can't handle hitting the same muscle group every 48h? Or some study says that 15 sets per muscle group per week is better than 10. And what if you can barely handle 10 let alone 15? The funny thing is when the bros say you should find what works for you everyone is lashing out at them - no, we have science, you are not special - but actually they are right. Some people respond better to lower volumes, some to higher, although from my experience those who respond better to higher respond pretty good to lower volumes too. On the other hand, there are people who respond only to lower volumes and higher volumes are detrimental to them. I guess it's again genetics. So how about you just try different volumes and see what happens? You don't need science for that. And another thing is obsession with what's optimal. Is this optimal, that's not optimal... Do you know what's optimal? To have rich parents, so you don't have to work or stress yourself about anything and to just eat, train and sleep. We normal people don't have that, so what's the point obsessing over it?

But because evidence based people don't see the forest for the trees, they convince themselves that all that shit is somehow important and their gurus make profit. "Stay on the cutting-edge of strength, hypertrophy, and nutrition research" - 30$ per month. I am laughing. How about you save that money and buy some testosterone, you know, the thing that really matters? Or if you don't wanna go that way then just stay natural, but don't give money to these scammers.
