    “Claiming theologically minded people must choose Calvinism…”

    Saw this headline referenced on The Wartburg Watch and almost fell out of my chair laughing.

    I used to be one of those guys…seems a long time ago, now.
    I do respect the desire for scholarship and learning, though…

    The “God As Gentleman” lecture, was for me, like nails on a chalkboard. God is not a gentleman, nor is Jesus, and any attempt to reduce them to that image is bound to fail.

    I think that was where you were when I first came around here…with Calvin’s Corner. Frankly I’ve just seen too much arrogance from many Calvinists to believe that they really had a corner on the market of theology. Thanks for your willingness to being open to the mystery.

    “Consider Me Triggered”…

    Author states: “I’ve barely been on social media lately, and yet this is the stuff I have been seeing when perusing my news feed.”

    Yee Lee, Product Manager, states the following:
    “Your Facebook activity that may influence your search results includes what your friends share with you, Pages you follow, Groups you’ve joined, events you’ve liked or followed, things you’ve interacted with in your News Feed, information you’ve listed on your profile, places where you’ve been tagged, and previous searches you’ve done. Your Facebook search results are also based on general Facebook community activity, including the popularity of whatever you’re searching for and how recently it was posted.”

    Social media news feeds are the definition of confirmation bias. I am not on soc. media, but they all work the same way and some even use your internet browsing history.

    The author is finding these outlier articles because she or her group was looking for them. It’s exactly what I used to do with ODM’s.

    I hope she gets out hiking more often.

    And, yes, her triggered feeling is probably appropriate. I dont know much but Im guessing Timothy in the Bible was not a – lol – Masuline Man. Byrd uses the APA to make her point and it accordingly goes nowhere.

    “Have a firm, dry handshake, and look a guy in the eye.
    This communicates frankness, but also
    Apparently the author has never had to buy a car.

    Accompaniment for Masculine Man article:

    Toxic masculinity confuses me…. I suspect it has little to do with masculinity and much more to do with the old sin nature…

  7. Toxic masculinity. I needed it to put to right that same thing exhibited towards my then nut ex when the manger at a Goodyear outlet tried to take advantage of her to the tune of $2k. I’m a pacifist, too. She ended up not paying a dime for a top end rebuild. She even described me as a big teddy bear recently. But I can alter when needs be.

    I found the original article clueless with maybe 10% valid. My struggle is raising my boy, who is also a big teddy bear.
