A call for men to repent, lead & stop whining like little girls about election anomalies
In the beginning, our first relative ‘Adam’ strayed from God, denied responsibility, shifted blame, and even blamed God. “Lord, it’s that woman You gave me!” (Genesis 3:12).
History repeats itself. Today man complains, “The election was stolen,” “It was rigged,” “It’s the tabulator’s fault,” “It’s those Democrats!” etcetera.
There are reasons God decreed (ordained) these election results and/or anomalies. The inevitable judgment of God is due to us, and I choose to rejoice, giving Him thanks.
I’m going to be frank and apply some tough love here (Prov 27:5–6, 1 John 2&3).
There’s a masculinity crisis in America, even in the institutionalized church. Men, suck it up buttercup. Put your big boy panties on and stop whining like little girls. Stop your blame-shifting. Stop using sinister profanities, and profane abbreviations and acronyms on social media.
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Galatians 6:7-10
Back to Adam’s original sin in the garden. Matthew Henry said the following of Genesis 3:12,
Observe the startling question, Adam, where art thou? Those who by sin go astray from God, should seriously consider where they are; they are afar off from all good, in the midst of their enemies, in bondage to Satan, and in the high road to utter ruin. This lost sheep had wandered without end, if the good Shepherd had not sought after him, and told him, that where he was straying he could not be either happy or easy. If sinners will but consider where they are, they will not rest till they return to God. It is the common fault and folly of those that have done ill, when questioned about it, to acknowledge only that which is so manifest that they cannot deny it. Like Adam, we have reason to be afraid of approaching to God, if we are not covered and clothed with the righteousness of Christ. Sin appears most plainly in the glass of the commandment, therefore God set it before Adam; and in it we should see our faces. But instead of acknowledging the sin in its full extent, and taking shame to themselves, Adam and Eve excuse the sin, and lay the shame and blame on others. There is a strange proneness in those that are tempted, to say, they are tempted of God; as if our abuse of God’s gifts would excuse our breaking God’s laws. Those who are willing to take the pleasure and profit of sin, are backward to take the blame and shame of it. Learn hence, that Satan’s temptations are all beguilings; his arguments are all deceits; his allurements are all cheats; when he speaks fair, believe him not. It is by the deceitfulness of sin the heart is hardened. See Ro 7:11; Heb 3:13. But though Satan’s subtlety may draw us into sin, yet it will not justify us in sin. Though he is the tempter, we are the sinners. Let it not lessen our sorrow for sin, that we were beguiled into it; but let it increase our self-indignation, that we should suffer ourselves to be deceived by a known cheat, and a sworn enemy, who would destroy our souls.
Matthew Henry and Thomas Scott, Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, 1997), Ge 3:9.
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
Lastly, today, God is commanding all men everywhere to repent, not repeat. Repent towards God and thrust ourselves upon Christ for salvation. And if you claim to be a Christian. Then continually repent, deny yourself, pick up His cross, and follow Christ daily. Read The Good News below.
