No help for singles – 2

I want to clarify some things about my last post: https://thefloatyboaty.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/no-help-for-singles/

It wasn’t a pity-party.  The post was to demonstrate the missing instruction and teaching that those with the experience – those who are older – should be providing.  If the people who are family through Jesus do not act like family, do not show love for one another as family, what is the difference between Christians and heathens?

A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.    –  John 13:34-35

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.    –  1 John 4:11-12

Where is this love?  Is there someone who cares about those who need help?  Everyone starts out single; no one starts out married.  So, shouldn’t there be some real and meaningful help for everyone?

I’m not complaining.  It is what it is.  However, there is something that can still be done – help each other and those whom have not reached the stages in life that you already have.  I have been through these stages and problems and am giving my report on the situation.  I have also given a way to resolve this issue.  It is time for others to step in and help or there be a continual downward spiral into the abyss that the heathens have already entered and learned the hard way.

The path of the masculine man

As the Bible teaches that God’s children are in the world but not of the world(John 15:19John 17:13-16), so too is the masculine man a man but not any man.  The masculine man chooses his path and is careful when others walk with him so that he is not drawn from his way and enslaved by another’s bonds.
Whether he leads, follows, partners, or separates, he chooses each and every step he makes.  If he does make a wrong turn or stumbles over something in his way, he corrects the mistake and learns from it.  The masculine man does not see the insurmountable obstacle as an insurmountable obstacle but as an opportunity to become stronger and more powerful.
The unmasculine man does not not attempt to overcome an obstacle that is too tough for him at that moment.  He does not gain strength from the obstacle or by other means.  An unmasculine man does not follow the best path, or even the good path, but the path easiest to travel.
Robert Frost (1874–1963).  Mountain Interval.  1920.  The Road Not Taken
However, a masculine man also avoids paths paths that are dangerous.  The dangerous path is slippery and precarious.
The masculine man must be strongest against not those who would lead wrong or leave him but those who would stay – that they would divert his direction by continual persuasion.
