Welcome. My new book, due out this spring, is called, Victory: Living the Morally Pure Life.
Now to the mailbag:
Q: Dear Mr. Moralism,
I was wondering if I should take a stand on this, since I know we need to take stands on other people's morality:
There’s this guy who says he’s a Christian, but he apparently thinks about his body a LOT. He works out HOURS a day, and poses for pictures in his underwear, knowing they will be displayed publicly.
He works at this place where they have dancing girls, getting paid to do sexy dances.
And there’s TONS of drinking there. His salary comes from an employer who's made millions off alcohol sales!
Like I said, he says he’s a Christian. Should I take a stand to show people I disapprove?
A: Dear Wondering,
His job helps him profit from alcohol sales? That’s wrong. It’s clear, biblically-speaking. (Gal 5:21)
All that working out, and pride of a body that won’t last? Hard to escape this: That's very shallow, self-focused, and, I’m sorry, that’s not what we’re supposed to be about as Christians. (I Tim 4:8)
He poses in underwear? No justifying that. It’s clear, biblically-speaking. (I Cor 10:32)
Sexy dancing girls where he works? You can’t square that with the Bible. (I Thess 5:22)
He may say he’s a Christian, but based on this moral behavior, I think we have to take a stand and disapprove heartily. (I Cor 5:11)
Being a Christian means rules. Sure, there are those who say “It’s not about rules, it’s about the heart, and we don't know his heart, etc.,” but they are namby-pamby types who aren’t holding the standard. I discuss this in my new book, due out this spring, called, Victory: Living the Morally Pure Life.
What do we need? More moral stalwarts, truly morally GOOD men, heroes of pure morality, to give us an example of victory through our personal moral purity.
We need more men like Tim Tebow!
Taking a stand,
Q: Uh...actually, that's who I was talking about, Tim Tebow, and -
A: Thanks for reading, everyone. My new book, due out this spring, is called Victory: Living the Morally Pure Life.
