Something must have scared him off.

Huffington Post warns of a “new dating trend” called mosting in This New Dating Trend Is Even Worse Than Ghosting

It’s essentially a subcategory of ghosting, said Tracy Moore, the journalist who coined the phrase in a January article for MEL Magazine.

“Mosting is ghosting, but where before you ghost, you completely love bomb the person with praise, compliments and faux perfect soulmate-type stuff,” she told HuffPost.

“It’s so over the top,” she added. “The ghosting is much more confusing and painful, because this wasn’t just a ‘meh’ date that you could take or leave. This person really made you feel like you had a rare connection in a sea of duds.”

It is hard to say what Moore is doing wrong given so little information.  Perhaps it is the hot farts that are scaring the men away?

    Off topic Dalrock, but I thought you might like to know Jordan Peterson agrees with you on Frozen, and apparently has a contact in Youtube who confirms it’s deliberate.

  2. Wraithburn says:

    On topic, with all the #metoo hysteria and rape accusations after the fact, I find it unsurprising there are men who drop this kind of stuff as cover fire for their exit.

  3. feministhater says:

    It’s kind of obvious though, isn’t it? You make it rapey for a man to out and out reject a woman and men respond by heaping false praise or making themselves look like beta wimps when they need to exit discreetly and end a relationship or date that isn’t going well. With no possible false accusations being made 20 years after the fact.

  4. Damn Crackers says:

    Once again, is there any man who can make these women happy?

  7. feministhater says:

    Sorry Wraithburn. Didn’t see you posted a similar comment before mine. Looks like a perfectly acceptable reaction to the #metoo hysteria and womens’ constant changing and moving of the goalposts with respect to sexual interactions.

  8. These things are ancient tactics in the war between the sexes, as shown in this Elvish poem.

    “An elvin-maid there was of old,
    A stenographer by day;
    Her hair was fake, her teeth were gold,
    Her scent was that of cheap sachet.
    She thought that art was really ‘keen,’
    The top ten she could hum;
    Her eyes were full of Maybelline,
    Her mouth, of chewing gum.
    Her head was full of men and clothes,
    Her hair, of ratted curls;
    Her legs she wrapped in fine Sup-Hose,
    For nights out with the girls.

    She met one morn an elvin-lad,
    Who took her to the fights,
    And said he owned a spacious pad,
    And went to law school nights.
    And so that night she gave her all
    In back of his sedan;
    So rich, she thought, so sharp and tall,
    A perfect family man.
    But then he told her with a smirk,
    That he loved another,
    And was a part-time postal clerk
    And lived home with his mother.
    A silver tear rolled down her cheek

    As she bussed home by herself;
    The same thing happened twice last week,
    (Oh, Heaven help the Working-elf!)

    — From “Bored of the Rings” by the Harvard Lampoon.

  9. Edward says:

    I think I count as having “mosted” someone, so I feel a) ahead of the curve and b) like a big man.

    It’s a function of online dating. There were two potential women in the offing, and I had dates lined up with them both. The woman I went out with first had her charms, so I wanted to keep her in play until I’d met the other one (scheduled for a week or so later), then see how the land lay.

    I paid for dinner and then went for the old grab-and-kiss straight after, and she appeared very pleased with the attention and went doe-eyed. A week later I met the other woman, decided she was the one for me, and not that long afterwards we got engaged.

    Without the internet I would never have had multiple options around like that, so there wouldn’t have been the same need to keep multiple plates spinning.

  10. Steve Crook says:

    There’s a song by Whitesnake. Which finishes:

    But would I lie to, would I lie to, should I lie to you?
    Just to get in your pants
    I think so

    From 1981. This is all so so old.

  11. Giacco says:

    It’s so tiring these days to watch women bounce between having all the agency in the world and then at the drop of a hat, absolutely none at all.

    If someone you just met showers you with over-the-top attention without even really knowing you…that doesn’t signal a few alarm bells in your head?

    I guess when the collective female ego is that massive and therefore “intrinsically worthy” of the attention, logic and self-reflection fall by the wayside.

  12. Fred Flange, GBFC (Great Books for Cucks) says:

    First off that I am not seeing this “trend” discussed anywhere else makes me skeptical that it is in fact a thing, beyond a Twitfeed or two.

    But assume it is: wouldn’t this tactic just be an “amplification” of the old PUA maxim, “leave them better than you found them”? As in, the morning after your ONS, be nice, go to breakfast, be pleasant, take selfies, send a nice text after you part about how much fun you had, etc. etc. butnot promising anything specific.

    Which other masters of the universe have noted is a good pre-emptive to avoid being me-too’ed or accused of being a cad and a churl, or an assaulter type. Compare the opposite: what happened to Mattress Girl’s unfortunate Columbia bad boyfriend she hounded for years in public, as revealed in the facebook posts attached to the still-publicly-available federal complaint he brought against Columbia.

    DISCLAIMER: The foregoing is no endorsement. My task is chronicling the WHAT IS, not the WHAT SHOULD BE. (Then adding a bad pun or two)

  13. OKRickety says:

    From the HuffPost article: ‘And that’s the most frustrating part, said Moore: In the age of hookup apps, there are plenty of women out there who’d be down for some casual sex without a man paying lip service to how amazing they are.

    ‘“If you’re mosting just for sex, you’re wasting a lot of needless effort on women who might be perfectly willing to sleep with you for no other reason than they think you’re hot,” she said.’

    So, there are “plenty of women” willing to have casual sex without a man saying how amazing they are. Apparently, the real key to getting casual sex is that “they think you’re hot”. That seems counter to the idea that women are having sex hoping to find security.

  14. Major Styles says:

    Another hard-hitting article from the female typists at the HuffPo! There could literally be a genocide in a neighboring country and these narcissistic bimbos would dump it, in favor of a story about the unrealistic waistline in the new Barbie edition.

  15. Scott says:

    Man its only been 12 years since I went off the market. No idea what ghosting is.

  16. earl says:

    Only if he submits to her perpetual unhappiness.

  17. earl says:

    First off that I am not seeing this “trend” discussed anywhere else makes me skeptical that it is in fact a thing, beyond a Twitfeed or two.

    Could be another ‘Tinder’ phenomenon.

    Let’s face it…there a lot of new things out there because of the easiness of casual sex. So much for that empowerment, ladies.

  18. thedeti says:

    Scott:

    Ghosting: what happens when one person in a romantic relationship suddenly, without warning or expectation, disappears from a person’s life and goes total “no contact”. Removes and blocks from social media, does not return texts or phone calls, erases all traces of his/her relationship with the person being ghosted, acts as if the relationship never existed.

  19. thedeti says:

    Eh. “Expectation” should be explanation.

  20. Anchorman says:

    I was “mosted,” or as we call it here, “frivorced.”

  21. earl says:

    “Mosting is cowardly,” he said. “Tell people beforehand if you’re just looking for sex. They should know your intentions so they can make an informed choice of whether or not to sleep with you. You may be surprised at how much they appreciate your honesty.”

    Why not just go full honesty.

    I’m just looking for sex…after you’ve sacrificed your body in such an intimate way for the purposes of my own orgasm I will not call you again nor will I even bother to acknowledge your existence because that shows a woman who has very little self respect and is basically is an open quiver. Unless I’m horny again then I’ll give you a call.

  24. earl says:

    Yeah that’s true…I guess I’ve been ‘ghosted’ by a number of women. I didn’t write a HuffPo article about it though because that’s usually what happens when they close the door to you.

  26. Lovekraft says:

    Consider your time and emotional health valuable, and invest in dating accordingly. Expect the possibility of her flaking on you and appreciate that it showed her true colors early on. Also good to go to a date with some type of backup or side task so that if it goes south, you haven’t completely wasted your time.
    .
    And as for Huffpo, I would not doubt that they would strictly censor all opinions from our side, so they should be treated as another branch of the feminist propaganda machine.

  27. Gaza says:

    A sea of duds. (Most men)
    Confusing and painful. (Her lack of power and control, triggered introspection*)
    Wasnt just a ‘meh’ date (like an attractive man with no game)
    Take or leave (only she gets to decide!)
    Made you feel (date a man with game)
    A real connection (date attractive man with game)

    *by introspection i mean ‘must write new essay about this disturbing trend that is happening (to me!)

    Male attractiveness is the operative condition. These are the conplaints of carousel girls who are realizing the decline of their SMV generated options in real time.

    Bumble was created to deal with the first set of carousel problems: unattractive men ‘approachig’, men who ‘just don’t get’ that she’s not that type of girl (with him), and guys without enough game to provide the plausible deniability pellets to her hamster – aka ‘one thing led to another’.

    Her SMV goes down and/or mileage goes up and new problems surface. The ‘right’ kinds of guys (the ones shes used to banging) aren’t following thru.

    She has already decided to bang him and he is playing out the script but then ghosts. Wait, thats from her playbook!. She is entitled to choose. WTF is this ‘trend’ all about? Lol

    Apparently this bird thinks that only men get to be disposable commodities in the online dystopia of dating.

  28. Darwinian Arminian says:

    @Wraithburn

    Good find on the Jordan B. Peterson tweets. He’s slammed Frozen on a few occasions before in his YouTube videos, but it’s interesting to see an apparent insider confirm that the “hidden messages” were placed there on purpose. Yet another demonstration of how pathetic the modern church is when we have to rely on a secular academic to pick up on propaganda that they claim not to notice so that they’ll be able to have the luxury of sitting out a culture war.

    Then again, maybe this has something to do with why the evangelicals are starting to come out against Peterson now that he’s been catching some attention. Check out this recent piece from a supposed “conservative” site. It warns about how his message to young men is really quite dangerous, because if those young men do “sort themselves out” and end up improving their lives for the better . . . they might be at risk for becoming proud. We certainly wouldn’t want that to be true of men in the church!

  29. dragnet says:

    I’ve definitely done this. It’s a good way to keep several options in play at once, depending on the girls in question. Believe it or not, it also increases the chances she will remain attracted to you after you disappear. This means, 1) dramatically lowered odds for false rape accusation and, 2) increased odds of you being able to have sex with her at a later date.

    Is that, from over fifty years ago, really any different from Frozen? – yet I find it hard to think that it was the true precursor to Women burning their Brassieres or Nuns abandoning their Cloister.

    What is it with Americans and their endless dreaming. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  33. Wraithburn says:

    @Darwinian Arminian

    It really is an indictment of the current church culture that we have pastors like Wilson writing screeds about the failures of today’s young men, and we’ve got agnostics like Peterson building them up.

  34. Vyasa says:

    Peterson really is just building Better Betas…can’t have the carousel riders hit their late 20s and not have a Beta to wife them up. Note that Peterson does not criticize women. It’s all about men being responsible.

    As for ghosting and this new trend of mosting, I remember when I started online dating. The first few months were rough:

    1. I’d get numbers, plan dates, the girl would be excited. Three days later, on day of date, no response, no show.

    Learned first hand what flaking meant. And you know what, I didn’t mind if a woman changed her mind. It’s the fact she wouldn’t even respond to text if she was still coming.

    2. When I did get dates, sometimes they went bad (no big deal), something they went well. Sometimes I’d want to see them again. And sometimes I’d get no response to text messages.

    At some point, I got really good at having zero expectations of a woman to a) keep her word to show up to a date, b) have the common courtesy to let me know if she wasn’t interested.

    Problem with online dating is that there are no real social consequences for acting like an a**hole. The probability you know the same people is miniscule. But I don’t think women realized it goes both ways.

    What is she complaining about?
    Women “most” all the time. They promise you a lifetime of companionship,children, fidelity. They dress up in a white dress and invite all their friends to hear her swear that she will “most” you forever. If she is devout, she will even declare it before God!
    Of course, w know how this , all too often, ends.
    If women are going to skew the market- and skew it big time they have – men will adjust accordingly.

    Is that, from over fifty years ago, really any different from Frozen?

    Well, yeah, because the song from Frozen every single girl remembers contains this key line:
    No Rules For Me. It’s different.

    Peterson may well be building a better beta, but unlike 99% of the church leadership he doesn’t talk down to young men and does not berate them (much). If church leaders were as smart as they pretend to be, they’d copy Peterson’s style and quit verballly beating men like a cheap pinata.

    Never mind the idea of compassion towards confused fellow men, I’d never ask any church leader to go that far. Just pointing out that copying the competition can work out in terms of market share, and therefore votes & dollars.

    @Opus, c’mon — comparing “Climb Every Mountain” to “Let It Go”?

    Did you ever actually see The Sound of Music? If so, it wasn’t recently enough to remember the context of “Climb Every Mountain”.

    And perhaps you’ve also forgotten another song from that movie, which Maria sang with Liesl:

    Maria:
    You are sixteen going on seventeen
    Waiting for life to start
    Somebody kind who touches your mind
    Will suddenly touch your heart

    Liesl:
    When that happens, after it happens
    Nothing is quite the same
    Somehow I know I’ll jump up and go
    If ever he calls my name

    Maria:
    Gone are your old ideas of life
    The old ideas grow dim
    Lo and behold you’re someone’s wife
    And you belong to him

  44. Opus says:

    @Splashman

    You have me there. In fact I saw The Sound of Music twice (in the movie theatre); the first time with my Mother and siblings and secondly shortly thereafter with my then squeeze. When I say saw a second time I have to confess I saw little for knowing that it was the longest movie then playing I figured that would mean even more snogging time than any other movie and that was why I ‘saw’ it twice (bored the pants off me even though it had plenty of Nazis). I have a theory that snogging has gone the way of the dodo and that teenagers no longer so indulge, but it was greaaaaaat and I cannot see how sex-dolls or VR can ever come close to replicating the experience.

    Shortly thereafter the bitch dumped me – and in the circumstances of our grappling in the dark of the theatre it is not surprising that she failed to get the song’s message – but she was hot and could have any boy she wanted. So much for under-age (both of us) cinema sex.

  48. dragnet says:

    @ Darwinian Arminian

    Yes, it has been interesting to watch the churches begin to respond to Peterson’s emergence. They just can’t seem to grasp that Peterson is resonating with young men because he hasn’t surrendered to postmodernism while the churches did so a long time ago. Men, especially young men, instinctively gravitate to strength and abhor weakness. It’s really that simple.

  49. American says:

    @dragnet, you’re over simplifying it imo. They respond to all sorts of things. With respect to Peterson, I’d add integrity and objective truth (at least the parts they grasp) for example. But it’s important to keep in mind that while a material number of young men respond to men such as Peterson, we also have a material number of young men responding to and supporting third/fourth/radical wave feminism.

    Such a great observation. Much like how they can swing from “We’re taking over” triumphalism to writing off any shortcoming to the patriarchy. The “Victor….Victim” binary axis of the female mind. Whichever role has the most utility, or dispense the most serotonin rather, given the situation.

    The best visual had to be the “Future is Female” placards marching side by side with placards championing equality at the incoherent pusshat “rage is fun” marches.

    LOL.

    We Catholic girls/women go nuts if someone so much as touches our sacred film-‘bible’. I grew up loving that film. I went to a convent school. I entertained lofty ideas of becoming a nun once. I have friends who DID become nuns. I now live in the Swiss Alps not far from the Austrian Alps where the true story of the von Trapps unfolded. I go hiking/running/skiing on the same mountains the von Trapps are said to have crossed, into Switzerland, on fleeing the Nazis…

    I know, I know, nuns can be very cruel individuals. But my grandfather started an important tradition in my family when he one day decided that ALL his daughters will be raised my nuns, even though he always disliked nuns (he believed they couldn’t be ‘normal’ for choosing not to be wives and mothers). Beginning with his eldest daughter my mother, ALL the women in my family have been to convent schools.
    My grandfather was not even Catholic. Anglican as they come, he decided that nuns are the best educators of young women, despite his beliefs about nuns. He always said, no-one was better equipped to bend the will of wayward girls into shape than a wizened old nun with no pity (because of course she lacked maternal sympathy!) LOL, my grandfather was one strange man, I have to say 🙂 (Yes, pot calling kettle black, I know! Clearly hereditary in our case 🙂

    I was taught (by the nuns) to model myself on Our Lady herself (yes, tough act to follow!).
    “Until a man claims you in the sacred scarament of Matrimony, you serve God your father, as your Holy Mother Mary did. After your husband takes you under his wing, in his home, at his side, you are his, and you serve God AND him, as your Holy Mother Mary did serve God and St Joseph.
    Understand?”

    Fifteen-year old Spacetraveller liked the sound of that and replied “Yes Sister”.
    And she still does to this day 🙂

    In this context, “Climb every mountain” is a very positive message that fifteen year old Spacetraveller took to mean “achieve all you can in the service of God your Father, and when the time comes, also for the glory of your husband, whoever he may be. And whatever that ‘achievement’ may be, be it being excellent in maintaining a home, being a great support/helpmeet for ‘il capo’, being a good listener, studying to be a nurse, engineer, whatever. You should be a high value woman for a high value man. Anything less, and you disappoint God”.

    Maria’s conversation with young Liesl is exactly along those same lines.
    “You are sixteen going on seventeen. One of these days you will meet a young man who will change you forever (hopefully in a good way, lol) in the way God intended. You will be his. He will OWN you (in the way God intended). You will belong to him. You will be part of him. You will be part of his family”.
    (I recently learned that the name-change for newly married women is a symbolism of this marital OWNERSHIP. I didn’t know that before! No-one explained this to me at our pre-Cana. I just thought it’s a nice tradition, etc etc. But symbolism matters on a deep level too).

    I think all of the above is beautiful. I don’t know much about this ‘Frozen’ film yet (maybe someday soon I shall find time to watch it to see what you are talking about) but I get the feeling it really cannot be compared to *my* Sound of Music.

    I will go so far as to say that every young woman, Catholic or not, should see this film. If for nothing because it is excellent as a tool for preparation of a young woman for marriage. (Both Maria and Liesl are preparing for marriage in this sense). And of course, because it is a well-loved, care-free film of old!
    But then again, I may be a weird one with strange affiliations, lol.

    “The letter clearly wasn’t to her husband. It was to her Facebook friends to share how much of a hero she is doing exactly what women have been doing for thousands of years.”

    This also provides some insight into the real dynamics of domestic violence.

  66. Dave says:

    Therefore Sheol [hell] has enlarged its throat and opened its mouth without measure…” -Isaiah 5:13-14 NASB.

    Why do people still use non-KJV bibles?
    Most of these new versions are new age books. They’ve gotten rid of several important verses, and also watered down many doctrines of the Church.
    Moreover, they make the Word of God even more difficult to understand (e.g. most people understand the word “Hell”, but not many people understand “Sheol”). If the intention of modern translations is to help people understand Scriptures better, they did just the opposite.

  67. info says:

    @Dave

    Sheol does seem to be very similar to the Greek doctrine of Hades. This is also the place from where God brought forth the spirit of Samuel when Saul sought the powers of the Witch of Endor.

    Mosted, Ghosted, pumped and dumped, humped, lumped and dumped tomato, tomatoe.. What, the sluts of Huffington Post are looking for better, kinder ways to spin that hamster wheel? They have to look in the mirror and consider they allowed a man to turn them into a cum-dumpster and the men having soiled them so, never saw them again? How do we look at that, at her? How is she to look at herself? I believe in the old ways. I’m going with plain old slut. Games, silly games, most, ghost, whatever. Honey, until you stop being a slut, men will keep dumpstering you. Then one day, they won’t even do THAT. These are the girls with Daddy-Issues.

    Just filed her whole damn disgusting, belittling and public bemoaning “letter” in the ‘so glad I ain’t married’ file. These women are on a quest, a quest I tell you, to prove each and every MGTOW point they can.

    These bitches cannot stop moaning. They are ungrateful little cunts and should be treated as such.

    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.

    This does not work if the man has multiple wives. You can flat out deny as you are want to do but it’s as clear as day. You cannot give yourself 100% to two, three or four other people.

    It’s a pointless debate. Have at it though, it will sure be a glorious ride!

I read and use the KJV but I prefer the NASB and NKV when dealing with those outside the KJOM. Onward. EOM.

  78. feministhater says:

    Jesus is quoting Genesis to establish a principle. He does not explicitly state that a man can only have one wife. Rather, he is describing the relationship between man and wife, singular.

    Well he’s actually saying a man will leave his family to set up another with a wife, becoming one flesh with her. He cannot then take up another wife and become, yet again, one flesh with her as well without diminishing the bound with the first wife.

    How many times can a man become one flesh with subsequent people. Does this not divide him each time he takes a new wife? That if he is to take a new wife, he must first extract his flesh from his first wife to be properly able to bind himself to his new wife? Or are we to believe that this union, the bound itself, is not meaningful?

    I really don’t understand how a man can have multiple wives and yet ‘enjoy the wife of his youth’. It seems counter-productive to put that in the Bible if a man can just take a far younger woman as his new bride and enjoy her instead..

  79. American says:

    ^ I see what you did there with the acronyms, lol.

  80. feministhater says:

  81. glosoli says:

    >How many times can a man become one flesh with subsequent people.

    There is no limit. They do not literally become one flesh of course.

    >Does this not divide him each time he takes a new wife?

    Yes. Most men would only want or need one wife. Some patriarchs could handle/needed two or more.

    >That if he is to take a new wife, he must first extract his flesh from his first wife to be properly able to bind himself to his new wife?

    There is no flesh subtraction necessary. Men remain virile into old age, women become infertile in their 50s/60s. Stop and ponder why there is a difference, and why many patriarchs took younger wives later in life. It’s all God’s design.

    >Or are we to believe that this union, the bound itself, is not meaningful?

    It is of course meaningful. But men have sexual needs well into their old age, whereas women lose their sexual desires post-menopause. The bible shows the solution (to those who need it/want it/can afford it): more wives.

    >I really don’t understand how a man can have multiple wives and yet ‘enjoy the wife of his youth’. It seems counter-productive to put that in the Bible if a man can just take a far younger woman as his new bride and enjoy her instead..

    Some men are able to enjoy both, men have different sex drives, different levels of wealth.

    “Polygamy was never lawful for any of the persons in the Bible. There never existed an express biblical permission for such a deviation from the ordinance of God made at the institution of marriage in the Garden of Eden (Gen 2:21–24).

    There are at least four passages that conceivably could be construed as giving temporary permission from God to override the general law of marriage found in Genesis 2:24. They are Exodus 21:7–11, Leviticus 18:18, Deuteronomy 21:15–17 and 2 Samuel 12:7–8. But each one falls far short of proving that anything like divine permission was being granted in these passages.

    Scripture does not always pause to state the obvious. In many cases there is no need for the reader to imagine what God thinks of such states of affairs, for the misfortune and strife that come into the domestic lives of these polygamists cannot be read as a sign of divine approval.

    It is true that Jacob was deceived by Laban on Jacob’s wedding night, but that did not justify Jacob in agreeing to Laban’s crafty plan to get him to stay around for another seven years to ensure continued prosperity. Two wrongs in this case did not make a right.”

  88. glosoli says:

    >’But each one falls far short of proving that anything like divine permission was being granted in these passages.’

    The fact that God chose to specify laws on the subject leaves no room or need for conjecture on His permission for multiple wives. To argue otherwise is to argue that God is incoherent, and contradictory in His ways and laws.

    The ‘bad outcome’ argument is weak. Despite every law God gave to the Israelites, and that were repeated by Jesus, we see nothing but bad outcomes, as mankind delights in disobeying God and following his own evil heart.

    Alfred the Great stands out as a counter-example however, bless him.

  89. feministhater says:

    You disagree with Jesus:

    ‘Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’

    I aim to teach men to obey God, not to add nor subtract from His commands. You prefer to disobey. I pray every day that those who claim to know Christ will recognise they don’t.

  96. feministhater says:

  101. glosoli says:

    >It’s not a stretch to note that your reasoning is about men needing younger woman to satisfy their sexual urges when their older wife no longer can; without having to divorce her at such a stage.

    That would seem to be one of the reaosns why God allows multiple wives, and why patriarchs took younger wives. That, and they were obeying the command to multiply, and more children is beneficial to the whole family/nation.

    ‘Everyone falls short, even you. Don’t think you have the right of it. That is pride talking.’

    I am called by Jesus to do this, as should all who claim to follow Him. I do so with humility, and back up every point I make with logic and scripture.

    >Now look who is putting words in other people’s mouths.

    It’s a historical fact that Puritans were anti-polygamy (as were the Romans). And your views are liberal and progressive, as they deny the evidence of scripture and God’s literal statutes on this subject. You may dislike the description, but that’s what you are.

    I am human, but the bible is easy to understand, if one doesn’t have one’s own prejudices blinding them.

  103. glosoli says:

    ‘Just an FYI. If slavery is not sinful, is it a wise thing to do?’

    If done in accord with God’s laws, slavery is a good institution for all concerned. You do know that people chose to sell themselves into slavery, for the security? Nowadays, most of humanity is a slave to the usurers, but with no choice on the matter, and no security.

  104. feministhater says:

    You twist my words once again. You disagree with Jesus in ignoring His command when He gave us the great commission.

    I didn’t twist your words. I told you to go and start your own blog and preach. If you believe you have the right of it, go and spread the word on your own blog. You will attract millions of followers because you know what Jesus states and have the right of it. Go forth and do that which you are called to do.

    I’m still wondering where in God’s law He was a-okay with polygamy…when there’s more than enough evidence in Scripture that God was stressing one man-one woman in the marriage setup.

    I don’t see regulation of something the same as approving of it. Your arguments are based on God regulating both slavery and polygamy as making them good. Rather than just a means to regulate a behaviour.

    You use the Old Testament as your proving grounds; Earl makes a valid point, Jesus has but one wife, the Church, and Christians are meant to emulate Christ.

    You make use of labels. I am not saved, I am but learning as I go. I am not progressive, nor conservative. I don’t approve of slavery or polygamy but don’t see them as sins.

    There is no humility in your words, only hubris.

  112. glosoli says:

    >Jesus has but one wife, the Church, and Christians are meant to emulate Christ.

    So are you going to destroy the billions of sinners in the world? Are you going to die for our sins?That’s what Christ did and will do. No, we’re not called to be like Christ, other than we are called to obey God’s commands, repeatedly:

    ‘And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.’

    One of the most quoted out-of-context bible verses that exists. It’s all about the commands, which Jesus kept perfectly.

    >I don’t see regulation of something the same as approving of it. Your arguments are based on God regulating both slavery and polygamy as making them good. Rather than just a means to regulate a behaviour.

    Only God the Father is good, and everything he’s given us is good, including (of course) his laws and commands. I urge you not to deny that which is obviously good.

    >I am not saved, I am but learning as I go. I am not progressive, nor conservative. I don’t approve of slavery or polygamy but don’t see them as sins.

    I pray that you will be saved. It is good to learn, and that is why I spend time on blogs sharing the word of God. Your disapproval of slavery and polygamy is a progressive view. It’s anti-God, it won’t help you toward salvation to be stiff-necked about it.

    >There is no humility in your words, only hubris.

    I feel joy at showing the coherence and good of God’s designs and laws, on behalf of God, but I have no pride in myself. I simply quote scripture and apply common sense and logic, and leave my own views out of things. Although, oddly, my views do seem to align very closely with everything God has given.

  113. Hose_B says:

    @Earl
    Even Christ the model for marriage has one wife…the church.
    Church is a plural word. It means the body of believers. More than a singular.

    God tells David that he had given him many wives, and would have given him twice as many if he had wanted them. He didn’t disapprove of David’s polygamy. It was his adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of Uriah that he was punished for.

    Keeping score of your supposed points is an obvious sign of pride. Don’t be coy. This is the last time I will respond to you.

    It’s not good to tell a brother to shut up when he’s talking about God’s laws.

  116. earl says:

    Huh?

    ‘You shall not marry a woman in addition to her sister as a rival while she is alive, to uncover her nakedness.
    Leviticus 18:18

    That seems to be a command to not marry a second wife.

    If a man sells his daughter as a female slave, she is not to go free as the male slaves do. If she is displeasing in the eyes of her master who designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He does not have authority to sell her to a foreign people because of his unfairness to her. If he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the custom of daughters. If he takes to himself another woman, he may not reduce her food, her clothing, or her conjugal rights. If he will not do these three things for her, then she shall go out for nothing, without payment of money.

    Hence take another woman at your own risk…you can’t reduce things to your wife because you have the hots for another.

    “If a man has two wives, the one loved and the other [a]unloved, and both the loved and the [b]unloved have borne him sons, if the firstborn son belongs to the [c]unloved, 16 then it shall be in the day he [d]wills what he has to his sons, he cannot make the son of the loved the firstborn before the son of the [e]unloved, who is the firstborn. But he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the [f]unloved, by giving him a double portion of all that [g]he has, for he is the beginning of his strength; to him belongs the right of the firstborn.

    Deuteronomy 21:15-17

    ‘If’…if is not the same as…’when’. And even then it was talking about firstborn son rights…not a ‘you can have two wives’ command.

    Where’s the law that God stated or commanded…’A man can have many wives’? Then you got a case for polygamy.

  117. Hmm says:

    glosoli,

    3 comments on polygamy:

    1. Is there ever an instance in Scripture where polygamy produced a happy marriage? Rather, the Scripture is full of counterexamples:

    – Rivalry and jealousy between Sarah and Hagar (and one was only a concubine).
    – Jacob being bought and sold like a whore by Leah and Rachel.
    – Rivalry between Elkanah’s wives Hannah and Peninnah
    – Acrimony and murder in David’s household among the sons of his many wives.
    – Solomon’s many wives leading him away from God and into idolatry.

    Probably more that I haven’t thought of.

    2. God giving rulings about something doesn’t indicate his approval, He also regulated divorce (the “certificate of divorce”). But Jesus makes clear that God never approved (Mark 10:1-9).

    3. The New Testament elder (church leader) must be “husband of one wife” (literally, “one-woman man”) (Titus 1:9). So only consider polygamy if you aren’t interested in meeting God’s highest standard in his church.

    @earl,

    If God covers a situation in His statutes (i.e. if you take another wife, don’t take the sister of your current wife), He’s conveying His having no issue with two or more wives. If you can’t understand that simple bit of logic, I’m afraid I’m struggling to explain it in simpler terms. If, not when, because polygamy is an ‘if’. Some did, some didn’t.

    @Hmm,

    I don’t view the bible as a book describing a history of human happiness in those times at all.
    It’s the opposite surely. I don’t expect my life on earth to be overly happy, but I strive to make it holy. The Israelites were mostly terrible people, showing their disobedience and hatred toward God so many times. Very few of them are good examples for anything worth striving for. Despite that, God still decided to send His son to die for them (and us).

    Re divorce, yes you are correct. But did Jesus say anything at all about multiple wives? Not a peep. Don’t extrapolate to suit your own agenda is the best way to approach these matters, there’s clarity in the word of God. Also, in these satanic times, we are rife with divorce, yet polygamy is illegal: what do you reckon? Do you see what satan did there?

    I agree that church leaders should only have one wife.

    @feministhater,

    >Well, exactly… regulation of something does not mean approval, it often means that thing leads to bad consequences down the road and thus needs to be restricted.

    God gave the rules to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. He literally created the institution of marriage. How did that first marriage work out for Adam, Eve, Cain & Abel? I’d imagine plenty of unhappiness, plenty of remorse for those bad consequences. None of the bad things that happen here are the fault of God or his rules and laws. Everything is because we turn away, and we continue to do so, even you here who argue against slavery/polygamy. I know we’ll never learn, and so Jesus will return.

    Will you be in the elect? Will He know you, despite your works? Or will you be disappointed as you are turned away, because you didn’t keep his law? Do ponder that seriously please.

    @Opus,

    Just read the law on usury and you’ll see. Every penny on the planet is created by usurers (except crypto currencies interestingly).

    Thank you to Dalrock for allowing me to comment today. I won’t make a habit of repeating myself on this subject either (well, not here anyway). Good night brothers.

    While God opposes having more than one wife or husband at a time, the way God opposes polygamy is not as strong. This is because though polygamy is not as good as monogamy, it is still is a lot better than fornication, adultery, serial monogamy (divorcing to remarry), etc…

    Prohibitions against polygamy are given in both the Old and New Testaments, but not in ways that include everyone or that make violating the prohibition something God punishes as sin.

    The New Testament prohibition of polygamy, with respect to church leadership, looks as if God is working to see leaders set an example. Which makes sense as God first designed human sexuality for a one-biologically-born-male and one-biologically-born-female relationship. God did not make multiple wives for Adam or multiple husbands for Eve. The original marriage formula was simply one of each: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (v. 24).

    In the New Testament, Jesus reminds us that God’s formula for marriage is and always has been monogamy, not polygamy. Asked about divorce, he repeats the marriage formula from Genesis but adds, “So they are no longer two but one flesh” (Matt. 19:6). The additional comment stresses what Jesus considered most important, and while highlighting the importance of the one flesh
    union, he did so in a way that focused attention on monogamy over polygamy.

  133. Paul says:

    The real state church of Sweden is the church of the Social Justice Warrior

  134. Paul says:

    About polygamy: although after the fall cases of polygyny (but never polyandry) are recorded, tolerated, and sometimes regulated, it is never explicitly commanded, only tolerated.With the advent of Jesus he restored marriage to the pre-fall condition: one-man-one-wife. As such the church has nearly always condemned polygyny.

    Most of the defenders of polygyny are required to combat this historical church position. The only way to do so, is by clinging to old covenant allowances, and ignoring new covenant commands.

    Case in point: glosoli has ignored any argument based on new testament commands, and counter-responded to any such argument with “not to add nor subtract from His commands”, by which he means old testament commands. When challenged on his view on the relation between old and new covenant – in this and other threads – he again chooses to ignore this distinction. It is typical of any defender of polygyny I have encountered. It is bad theology. driven by bad exegesis, driven by male sexual lust.

    Not that it adds much to the (theological) discussion, but this is supported by human nature: in polygyny, women are usually not that happy to share a husband (not really “their” husband) with another woman, and would rather have a husband of their own. Feelings of jealousy and neglect dominate. As are battles to become the preferred wife. And similar to the animal kingdom where wife-hoarding is common in some species, most males will never be able to have sex, which results in constant battles to become the harem leader. Such is the fate of polygamist societies.

    Due to the influx of muslim immigrants, unofficial polygyny has been on the increase in “Christian” nations. The attack on biblical marriage by communists, by feminists, and by homosexuals will be followed by an attack by Mohammedans. Mark my words.

    For the record, I’m all in favor for biblical monogamous marriage, but recognize the inherent difficulties with it, just as Paul describes in 1 Co 7. Current Western societies treatment of sexuality and marriage is far removed from biblical norms. And yes, that includes many churches.

  135. Paul says:

    @glosoli: But men have sexual needs well into their old age, whereas women lose their sexual desires post-menopause. The bible shows the solution (to those who need it/want it/can afford it): more wives.

    No, not at all. The bible shows the norm on sexual needs: have sex with your spouse, regardless of your sexual desire.

    My answer: why do people still use the KJV? It’s not an accurate translation, at least on this theological point. You used the example of ‘hell’ vs ‘sheol’. You should know that hell (the lake of fire) is not the same as sheol. Sheol means ‘the grave.’ The KJV mistranslates sheol as hell; the modern translations are correct in using ‘the grave’ or ‘sheol’ or some close synonym in every occurance of the word. Here is one example:

    When Jacob the patriach spoke of dying, he said he would go down to sheol (Gen 37:35; Gen 42:38). If the KJV were to be consistent in its translation then it should state that Jacob went to hell.

    Actually, polygamy is in every way the same thing as adultery, maybe worse (because the polygamist engages in sexual activities with another person other than their lawful spouse).

    And polygamy is worse than serial monogamy (whereas the serial monogamist still pays lip service to God’s original plan of “one man, one wife”, and seems to eschew fornication by marrying his serial spouses, the polygamist completely ignores God’s law on marriage by hoarding every woman who catches his fancy). And the fornicator is the worst of them all.

    I could come up with three major reasons why God permitted polygamy in the OT:

    1. To reduce the prevalence of fornication. If God were to ban polygamy outright, the “extra” spouses would have to be divorced, and the latter may have trouble finding future husbands, having been publicly humiliated by their former spouses. This will leave a lot of young, attractive, sexually available, sexually awoken, and vulnerable women in society, and the possibility of rampant fornication will exist. Incidentally, second and latter wives tend to be younger and more attractive than the first wives, and the attraction between these women and their former spouses wouldn’t go away simply because the law forbid their union.
    2. To save the innocent parties. To prevent fornication that might arise from polygamy, God would have to institute the death penalty for polygamists. But then, this will leave a mass of widows, innocent widowers, and innocent children in its wake.
    3. As a demonstration of God’s mighty grace. This is the same reason why God does not strike fornicators, adulterers and homosexuals dead with lightning the moment they commit their sins. He wanted to “shut them up” to the coming redemption in Christ Jesus.

  141. Hose_B says:

    @Paul
    It is bad theology. driven by bad exegesis, driven by male sexual lust.
    Paul. Don’t start blaming “bad men”. Some of us who “defend” biblical polygany do so because it is where the scripture leads. Honestly the Bible (NT or OT) does a very poor job of conveying that monogamy is Gods way. Two small verses among dozens that seem to support polygany. (NEVER polyandry as stated above)
    As to whether it’s smart, Jesus tells us that to fully serve God we should NOT MARRY AT ALL. If we wish to be a deacon in the church, we should limit ourselves to one. Because wives naturally take our time and attention away from fully serving God. It’s allowed and not a sin, but our attentions are divided.
    Use scripture. All through here is see individuals VIEW of scripture supported by secular reasoning, instead of biblical reasoning shaping their view.

  142. Hose_B says:

    @Dave
    ”Actually, polygamy is in every way the same thing as adultery, maybe worse (because the polygamist engages in sexual activities with another person other than their lawful spouse).”

    Dave, Adultery is sleeping with another mans wife. It is not engaging “in sexual activities with another person other than their lawful spouse”. That may be defined as fornication. You also assume that the miltiple wives aren’t “lawful spouses”. Lawful is a secular word because that is the law you speak of, civil, not Gods.

    Just for the record, polygany is a BAD Idea for most guys. Allowed or not. I don’t advise it, but will state what the scripture says regarding it.

  143. Dave says:

    Dave, Adultery is sleeping with another mans wife. It is not engaging “in sexual activities with another person other than their lawful spouse”. That may be defined as fornication.

    No, sir. A polygamist is already married to his first wife, but chose to “marry” additional women. Those additional women are not his rightful, God-sanctioned spouses. If he sleeps with any of them, he commits adultery, not fornication.

    And it is not an assumption that extra spouses are not rightful spouses, as far a God’s original design is concerned. If God wanted men to have more than one wife, He would have established that design from the very beginning.

  144. Dave says:

    The NT period covers approximately a period of 100 years.
    It is inconceivable that there was not one person in the church during this period who could come to an understanding that it was OK for Christians to engage in polygamy. Not one.

    Even when Apostle Paul addressed the issue of polygamy in the church in those days, he rendered polygamists ineligible to hold positions of leadership in the congregation, indirectly telling everyone else not to contemplate the practice.

    Only those who have become deceived by the spirit of the last days would claim to have a better understanding of any doctrinal issue than the early Apostles.

  145. Red Pill Latecomer says:

  146. Dave says:

    Jesus tells us that to fully serve God we should NOT MARRY AT ALL

    Nope. Jesus didn’t say that.
    What Jesus said was that some people decided, of their own volition, to become eunuchs, and therefore did not marry. God never commanded anyone in the NT not to have a spouse in order to serve God “fully” (whatever that means).

    Matt 19:12 (KJV)

    For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

    Even Apostle Paul said he had a right to “lead about a sister, a wife”, the same way several Apostles did, but chose not to do so:

    1 Corinthians 9:5
    Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?

    We definitely can serve God “fully” with our spouses and children:

    1 Tim 3:1-4 (KJV)
    1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
    2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
    3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
    4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

  150. Paul says:

    To bring a bit of balance to that: it is better not to marry IF you can control your sexual desire.

    1 Co 7

    8 Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. 9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

    And if you’re unmarried you have more time to please the Lord.

    32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband.

    And the married life will give such trouble, it is better not to marry

    28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

    38 So then, he who marries the virgin does right, but he who does not marry her does better.

  151. Paul says:

    Notice what the basic attitude for men and women in marriage should be (1 Co 7:33,34):
    A. a married man is concerned about how he can please his wife
    B. a married woman is concerned about how she can please her husband.

    This is precisely why its better for those with low libido to just remain single. And for those with those with such a libido that exceeds their self-control to marry a spouse one burns with passion for.

    The last thing anyone should do is marry because its expected for them to do so despite their libido not exceeding their self-control or of a low sex drive.

    Hence we would solve the problem of unsatisfied women who have husbands that do not fulfil their marital duty and likewise of the other way around all other things being considered.

    Adultery is sleeping with another man’s wife. That’s the only definition of adultery in the Bible I am aware of, although I’m willing to read any references you provide.

    Hose is right in his view on the Bible and polygamy. The Bible is borderline obscure on polygamy. It’s really weird. And don’t forget, if a man’s brother in Israel died without seed, his brother was obligated to take his widow and raise up seed for him. That pretty much mandates polygamy in a lot of situations.

  157. squid_hunt says:

  158. BillyS says:

    Squid,

    That pretty much mandates polygamy in a lot of situations.

    Depends on what you mean by “a lot”. Sure, it happened, but that was not a common thing.

    It is also not a major focus anywhere past the idea of raising up seed to a dead brother, when the biological component was so strong.

    It does seem a bit odd to me as the child would still have a strong tie (bio) to the one who caused his birth rather than the father who had died. But this was for inheritance, not sexual pleasure. Note that his brother’s wife isn’t really his wife, since the children are in his brother’s name.

  159. BillyS says:

    I (fortunately) missed out on much of the polygamy discussion, but one more comment:

    Hose_B,

    God tells David that he had given him many wives, and would have given him twice as many if he had wanted them. He didn’t disapprove of David’s polygamy. It was his adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of Uriah that he was punished for.

    Yes, it was better for David to have an additional wife in his growing harem than to have killed someone for their wife. That does nothing to prove that having any more wives was a good thing in the slightest.

    Go back to the beginning, as Jesus did. God made one man and one woman to be partners for life. He did not give Adam a harem.

    God allowed polygamy for the hardness of their hearts, just as he did with divorce. Even the Law accounted for how men were, not what the best path was. Missing that point shows great ignorance.

    Squid you are likely correct (and my original reply in error), but it is not clear. It only notes what happens to the first son, nothing about anyone else.

    Though the idea seems to be that she is taken care of by family (“not a stranger”) rather than one arguing in support of polygamy. Killing your brother to get his wife would definitely be considered a sin, so I don’t see how this command could be used to argue in favor of general polygamy since it covers a very specific, limited case.

    What do you mean by “what to do with it”? Clearly polygamy is not the best route. So aim toward the best route and allow others if necessary. What action are you required to take? Merely note that it is not ideal and go forward focusing on the ideal of marriage as one man and one wife for life.

    Nothing in the example you note requires general polygamy, as I already noted, so you have no compulsion to attempt to overturn the laws of the land to support it, though we seem to have elements of it in many ways (AFBB).

  169. BillyS says:

    Squid,

    Do you see any problem with saying something like:

    It is clear that polygamy was not God’s initial intent, but that He allows it under specific circumstances. It always has bad consequences when it is shown (direct or implied). It was used to help ensure bloodline succession, but otherwise is never encouraged, even when allowed and regulated.

    Put that in your own words, but it would seem to fit with what most have been saying here. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong of course.

    “Isn’t it possible that Moses allowed people to practice polygamy, because of “the hardness of their hearts,” but from the beginning it was not so?”

    Raising up seed for your brother’s inheritance was a commandment. And again, I’m not arguing for polygamy. I agree with BillyS’s position that it’s a bad policy. Just seems strange the Bible does not seem to ever clearly address it.

    That’s actually a really good point, but it doesn’t completely answer my question. I think there were a lot of legalities that Moses instituted in good faith, which didn’t perfectly line up with the will of the divine. Both St. Paul and Sigmund Freud suggested that Mosaic law was a stepping stone to something greater, rather than an end in itself.

    My brother Glosoli claims to believe in Jesus, so I don’t know what is so confusing to him about this, the concept of the intermediate… Maybe he can tell us…

    What is “Poke’s Law?”

    “As a Dalrock post discussion grows longer, the probability of a heated discussion involving polygamy approaches 1”

  175. BillyS says:

    The Law was given to show that people could not live a righteous life themselves. Only Jesus could fulfill it, plain and simple.

    Squid,

    The question of “Is it sin?” remains unanswered and would be the only rational deterrent, I think.

    It is not sin, but it is also not wise.

    [1Co 6:12 NKJV] 12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    Not a good idea, even if not sinful. Very applicable, including the last part. It will definitely not solve the problem some proclaim (rebellious wives).

    I don’t believe it’s going to hold water for very much longer.

    I am not sure what you mean by this.

    I actually went into HuffPo (no worries, I will be asking Christ for forgiveness tonight for that sin of raising that site’s traffic by 1-click) and I have to tell you….

    I was laughing so hard at the article, I actually tears in my eyes as I write this. 😀 I am literally in tears here, folks, this whole thing was just too hilarious. 🙂 When I was halfway through it, I thought the whole thing was a spoof or a hoax, but then realized the writer is serious, then I could not help but laugh! That article should be in the comedy section, targeting delusional individuals, who need to group-share in some sort of weird NYC-style online therapy!

    First, there are only three plausible reasons for a guy to “mosting” some girl after a hook-up off Tinder, probably happening within an hour or two of meeting in person:

    1) He is an ultra-Beta/Gamma that got lucky and does not know how to handle the whorish modern Western woman;
    2) He is a sociopath or a pathological liar; or
    3) He is afraid of false rape accusation and wants to get out “peacefully” later, without her calling cops and falsely accusing him of rape.

    Second, what makes the whole thing so funny is here we have a typical NYC “strong, empowered woman” (translation: a leftist harlot), who claims to be “fallible, loud, and political as I can be” (translation: Marixt, self-agrandizing, rude, and nasty loon). She herself claims that she enjoys getting pumped ‘n dumped by hundreds of random/stranger dudes (see below), while living in the east-coast Gomorrah of America and while writing for a publication that is so far left, it makes Stalinist propaganda seem moderate in nature.

    Here is how Gabrielle describes herself in said article:

    “I secretly hoped that he was the same as me, that his chest also simmered with hidden indiscretions, and that the speed with which we slept together was as typical for him as it was for me. Because if it wasn’t, I would have to wonder if, upon discovering the truth, he would recoil. I would have to wonder if he would think of me as dirty or morally deficient, even though he already said he found me gentle.”

    Is this a “dream girl” for anyone?? Does such a woman is worthy of such praise, oh say Proverbs 31-style??!? And getting this from a guy from TINDER, of all places, who she describes as “cute”, whom she was banged by after less then 1 hour?

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight….. Now, for BEST PART: Check out her pic!!! Here is Gabrielle Ulubray, who is widely referenced in that HuffPo article (she is a NY Times writer!):

    (This is her professional pic used in NY Times, PhotoShopped-enhanced and with perfect lighting and perfect photo conditions, so this is as good as she is going to look, ever!)

    Does any sane/reasonable person think she should believe that she is “amazing, beautiful, etc etc etc?”

    LOL Gimme a break, sweetheart!

    That would be like some woman saying to me that I have Arnold Schwarzenegger’s body when I can only bench 250lbs and have 12% body fat (low, but not nearly Arnold caliber!). lol Of course a woman saying I look like Arnold is only joking, but I am sane, normal, and realistic, so of course I know that!

    If Gabrielle truly believe that with her leftist lunatic mindset and her complete lack of good looks (and self-awareness, it seems), that she somehow qualifies for any “cute guy” to say “I think you’re the girl of my dreams,” I would like to set up a meeting. I have a bridge to sell you and you will be rich charging everyone to cross it! 😉

    Maybe we need to start a “Delusional People, Inc.” (DPI) and run group therapy sessions online and charge big for it. Might as well profit from the decline!

    Surely, we live in a time of great delusion. Gabrielle Ulubray is the poster-child for the delusional. She should be (DPI’s spokesperson or something). 🙂

    The average western modern woman wants as much honesty from a man, as a man wants HPV-caused throat cancer from such a woman (men get that from eating out loose women). 😡

    When a woman asks a man “honestly”, she is giving you a shit-test. ❗

    She WANTS you to lie, and she wants to see if you have the balls to deliver the lie (or to make her feel better while soaking herself in her own delusional mind). It is a trap!!!

    Honestly gents, I think most heartache that some men allow themselves to feel from his dealings with the modern “strong, independent, sassy, empowered woman” is self-inflicted. Learn who the sluts are, learn how to deal with their shit-tests, and run Game.

    You can either enjoy the decline or seek out a “decent woman”. It is very hard to find in the West, hard to find in the 3rd world Conservatribve world, and impossible to find in Western Europe. But in “middle America”, it is not impossible to find a decent woman, if your definition of “decent” is under 20 roosters in her poon and she is at least a 6 in appearance.

    At some point, you, as a man, will have to make a choice: enjoy the decline and pass the shit-tests and keep going until all you can get is Pay 4 Play (P4P) or try to find a decent woman, whatever that means nowadays. This is what I mean: https://illimitablemen.com/2016/01/22/the-choice/

    It will be fine one way or another, as long as you have the information and act with even a modicum of wisdom and common sense. 🙂

    My .2 cents.

  178. Otto says:

    The question being God’s position on polygamy, it would seem to continue to be muddled.

    This is like trying to debate tithing. No point.

    I’ll stick with the secular argument. Every advanced society in history–regardless of religion–has banned polygamy. Until someone can counter the secular reasons it was banned in every advanced society, it should remain banned.

     I’m surprised Red Pill men are actually advocating polygamy.

    They are not red pill men. By definition, red pill men do not live in a fantasy world–they are realist.

    Polygamy advocates live in a fantasy world. They fantasize that if polygamy became legal and accepted that they would somehow end up with multiple wives.

    Dude, if you haven’t convinced multiple women to move in with you, or have a wife and mistress (with the wife’s knowledge), then you haven’t got a snowball’s chance of having multiple wives. None, nada, zero. Give it up and get real.

  179. Paul says:

    @info: “Hence we would solve the problem of unsatisfied women who have husbands that do not fulfil their marital duty and likewise of the other way around all other things being considered.”

    I think you’re still missing the point. That’s OK, it’s so ingrained in everybodies’ mind that you NEED sexual desire BEFORE having sex. However, the biblical message is different. As soon as you marry, you have sex as often as you OR your spouse desires. This implies it will often happen when one of the spouses DOES NOT HAVE sexual desire at the moment. It is not relevant. You have sex out of love. You have sex out of duty. Which does not mean it is unpleasant. And usually you get turned on anyway.

    Of course you’re free to marry who you want, so you would be mad if you chose someone who you’re NOT sexually attracted to. But once you’re married, your body belongs to your spouse for sexual pleasure.

  180. Paul says:

    @squid_hunt: The Bible is borderline obscure on polygamy. It’s really weird.

    No it’s not, and so does the majority of Christians conclude. Simple scheme: tolerated and somewhat regulated in the old testament, forbidden in the new testament.

    @squid_hunt: And don’t forget, if a man’s brother in Israel died without seed, his brother was obligated to take his widow and raise up seed for him. That pretty much mandates polygamy in a lot of situations.

    Except it was permissible to NOT marry her.
    Dt 25:8 Then the elders of his town shall summon him and talk to him. If he persists in saying, “I do not want to marry her,” […] 10 That man’s line shall be known in Israel as The Family of the Unsandaled.

    Furthermore, the brother might have been unmarried. Hence not a strong mandate for polygamy. It shows a strong cultural tendency, just as levirate marriages were/are known in other parts of the world too. Obviously the focus is on preventing the bloodline of his deceased brother to discontinue (6: The first son she bears shall carry on the name of the dead brother so that his name will not be blotted out from Israel), to keep inheritance in the bigger family, and I suppose it is also to support the widow, both directly by marriage, and indirectly by offspring.

  181. Dale Force says:

    Of course the obvious reason for ‘mosting’ is that while the woman may have thought things were great, the man may have had a terrible time. I mosted one woman after she agreed to go on a date with me. (She demanded a chaperone, and what friend wouldn’t advise me not to date a graduate student from Queens I met at Campus Crusade for Christ who required a chaperone.)
    I’ve had other cases when I should have mosted the woman.

  182. info says:

    I have no disagreement. I would have to refine my thoughts and wording.

    Its precisely because of marital duty that its better that people with little to no sex drive or those with a tight handle on it shouldn’t marry.

  183. info says:

    @Otto
    ”Polygamy advocates live in a fantasy world. They fantasize that if polygamy became legal and accepted that they would somehow end up with multiple wives.”

    Only aristocrats and men like Donald Trump will end up with the fantasy scenario in. Hypergamy will ensure this to be the case.

  184. info says:

    @Otto
    ”Every advanced society in history–regardless of religion–has banned polygamy.”

    Or if not ban make it exponentially difficult for polygamy to take place even in many Muslim nations.

  185. squid_hunt says:

    @Paul

    I don’t agree that the New Testament forbids it, except in Timothy and Titus regarding church officers. I think your argument basically boils down to the same as BillyS, a matter of prudence and preference. Which means it leaves it wide open for someone else to say, I prefer it the other way.

    But I’m still open to the clear exposition against polygamy, since you say it’s there.

  186. Redd Pille says:

    So when women do this there’s no problem and it’s simply “you go girl” female empowerment, but when Men do it there’s a problem?

  187. ChristianCool says:

    I have to tell you, I am very confused and befuddled about this discussion about POLYGAMY. :-/

    First of all, all Red-Pilled humans know this will never happen in USA, unless we become Germany or Sweden and have massive Muslim immigration, to the point they will have enough votes to legalize polygamy.

    Being red-Pilled = being realistic, honest, and fact-based. There is no political will for such a move, there are no support for polygamy from Feminists, or the Conservative Christians. Right now in America, with the institution of marriage dying out before our very eyes, some are talking polygamy?? That is blue pill talk, wishful thinking of an extent that I cannot even comprehend or fathom.

    But let’s indulge some blue-Pilled fantasy and let’s suppose you could marry 4 women in America today and you managed to pull that off and marry 4 broads. Then wife #3 decides she is not haaaaaaaapy and takes your ass to court and sues you for 1/2 your stuff.

    How is that gonna go with wives # 1,2, and 4?

    What if 2 wives sue you for 1/2 your stuff (that could add up to 75% of your total assets?

    If you think 1 wife divorce-raping you is bad, try multiplying that by 4!!! -_-

    Polygamy would be a divorce lawyer’s dream scenario, but we KNOW our country has become much less affluent then before and therefore, they know there won’t be much to split during each of your 4 future divorces.

    Can you imagine child support when dealing with 4 different women?? Say hello to your fav jail cell for me! 🙄

    The discussion about Polygamy misunderstands the whole point of the OP article and misses the reality of American economic decline, and the unbelievably unfair situation with American Family Law court situation. It is absurd, implausible, and Beta.

    I asked before and you didn’t answer: What are you wanting? You have a clear exposition. It is not banned, except for church leadership, but it is a horrible idea. What are you trying to prove by not accepting that?

  190. squid_hunt says:

    @BillyS

    That was in response to Paul, buddy. “You” doesn’t always mean you.

  191. BillyS says:

    Squid,

    I was responding to the general issue. It seems the case has been made. Paul is not correct, but only on a relatively small part. That is why I asked why you need further clarification. Are you planning on starting to advocate for polygamy?

  192. BillyS says:

    Advocate legally I mean.

  193. squid_hunt says:

    @BillyS

    When people claim the authority of the scripture on an issue I think the Bible is vague on, I tend to ask for evidence. It’s pretty clear from my line of responses that’s my intent. They’re still there to read, if you’re interested.

  194. BillyS says:

    I have read your replies Squid. They are not clear and I am still not sure why you are pushing the issue, but have fun doing so.

    The legality of polygamy has been addressed many times, by several who reply here, so challenging Paul, for example, has little merit.

  195. squid_hunt says:

    Oh, Billy…

  196. Paul says:

    @squid_hunt: But I’m still open to the clear exposition against polygamy, since you say it’s there.

    Not only do I say it’s there, but that has been the testimony of the majority of the Christian Church.
    I think you’ve heard many an argument before. But for the sake of completeness, let’s collect here some well-known texts plus a short description why it speaks against polygyny. I will only focus on general texts.

    1 Co 7:2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.

    It says a man’s own wife, a woman’s own husband. If you are married to more than one wife/husband, the other party does not have you as their own anymore, they have to share you.

    Eph 5:31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.

    It says a man and his wife is as Christ and the church. Not churches. The church, singular.
    It says the two will become one flesh. Not three. Not four. Two.

    Luk 16:18a “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery.

    It says it is adultery if you marry another women (EVEN AFTER YOU DIVORCED YOUR WIFE, but that’s a different point). If it’s adultery, it’s sin. If it’s sin, it’s not allowed.

    Mt 19:4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ ? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
    The two will become one flesh. One male and one female. One flesh (Adam) into two (Adam and Eve), united again in one flesh. If anyone believes this still allows for polygyny, it would also allow polyandry. On what ground do you forbid polyandry, but allow polygyny?

    [That polyandry is forbidden is usually not contested. A clear text showing it is forbidden Rom 7:3
    So then if, while her husband lives, she is married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband dies, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she is married to another man.]

  197. ChristianCool says:

    @Squid_hunt

    It is not that I think you are all “betas” for discussing polygamy. I would not be part of a discussion if I thought that. 😉 I am open-minded to any rational discussion and I think both sides actually make some valid points about it.

    The issue is that we almost universally seem to agree that Marriage 2.0 = a bad deal for men in any Western country (including former colonies in the Americas, Brazil most notably as a Feminist hell).

    Why, given how bad our divorce laws are in ALL Western country, no exceptions, why would any man be willing to marry 1 woman, much less 1-4 women! 😮 It just boggles the mind.

    I think people are forgetting any divorce will od to man. Even Child Support for a child fathered by a man out of wedlock while he is legally married to another woman and has child(ren) with his wife, can be devastating to his legitimate family. He can lose over 33% of his PRE-tax income. Devastating.

    Can you imagine what a polygamous-divorce can actually do to to the remaining 1-3 other wives, their kids, and the man of the family??

    Devastating financially. 1 of the wives can put whole remaining family into poverty. It is same problem as 1 woman divorcing her husband and taking more then 1/2 his income, assets, and property. 😮

    From a legal standpoint, unless you restored marriage to 1.0 and made divorce very hard to obtain and limit child-support, polygamy cannot happen financially, because the negative effects on the remanining spouse(s) and children would be unnnaceptable.

    Then the only alternative is make divorce almost-impossible to obtain. Then you risk an Andrea Yates-type situation to the rest of the family. Since women almost never get punished for crimes they commit, this could become a real problem. You could have one of the wives just Andrea Yates the rest of the family on a whim! 😮

    So you would need to legislatively and judicially fix:
    *End no-fault divorce;
    *Greatly limit woman’s access to husband’s income and assets (i.e. Enforce Prenups, create limited actions within statues, etc);
    *End child support for non-married children from a man;
    *Criminalize adultery;
    *Limit child support for any and all children from divorce/extra-marital affairs;
    *Require mandatory punishment for ALL crimes, so women are sentenced to same time in prison as men, removing judicial bias that protects women;
    *Change State laws in all 50 States, because marriage is largely regulated by States (although gay marriage was created by US Supreme Court (illegally, I might add).

    The task is so difficult that it makes the discussion almost pointless. That is the problem. I mean no offense or disrespect. 🙂

  198. Dale says:

    Earl said I like it when women purposely uglify themselves…makes it a lot easier to see red flags and avoid.

    I had the same idea about women who wear men’s clothing, cut their hair, are fat, or refuse to cover their heads in church service. (Deut 22:5, 1 Cor 11, Titus 2:3-5, 1 Cor 11)
