Mark Driscoll yells at men and some Christians wring their hands about it. I say "Keep it up."
According to this Time article, traffic tripled to AshleyMadison.com (no, I won't hyperlink it) -- a website that helps men and women commit affairs -- the Monday after Father's Day.
What the heck?
The whiners in the article talk about things being tough in marriage.
Welcome to real life.
I know there's lots of great guys out there faithfully loving their wives and kids and not taking out press releases about it, but there's still an awful lot of idiots. In the church.
I don't expect lost people to be great at marital monogamy, and while all people are sinners, and sinners sin, I am totally freaked out about self-professing Christians who both cheat and then half-*ss their repentance.
Remember recently "fallen" pastor Gary Lamb? Homeboy's Twitter feed ever since has been riddled with how irritating and inconvenient his life is now, at one point even saying he'd "kill" a rude driver who obviously didn't know the week Gary'd been having. Poor baby.
He acts like a victim and of course he receives tons of Twitter sympathy.
In a blog post, Lamb refers to other pastors who are cheating on their wives, saying he knows "what they're going through."
Apparently having sex with a woman who's not your spouse is something that happens to you, not something you do.
Man up, dudes. You cheated on your wife. Sorry life's been tough lately, but quit yer whining. You earned the difficulty.
Repentance flows from and yields brokenness. If you're angry, irritable, and throwing pity parties, you're not repentant.
Disgraced South Carolina Governor Mark Sandford says he wants to reconcile with his wife but still maintains he is in love with his mistress, his once-in-a-lifetime soulmate. His wife must be totally stoked about that reconciliation now.
And grow up.
Somebody reading this post right now looked at Internet p()rn earlier. Stats are in favor of that statement.
If you need help, get it.
If you don't need treatment, then stop it.
Here, let Driscoll yell at you a bit:
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.
-- 2 Corinthians 7:10
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.
-- Revelation 3:19
