By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them

A few years back, my sister’s step-daughter adopted three kids, supposedly all brothers and sisters, but more likely half brothers and sisters.  The oldest boy, six years old at the time had anger issues.  It was understandable, as the mother had done such things as put him in charge of the younger kids for the weekend while she was off making whoopee.

After adoption, the anger in the oldest boy receded, as here was a nice stable environment.  Now, 9 years later, they are back again.  He is a big fella, who is wise to the system.  He threatens to call child protective services when there is an attempt at discipline.  He also understands what his size does for him.  Therapy doesn’t seem to be working particularly well.  Short answer — he can get away with it because the system effectively encourages him.

As for his real mother, she is undoubtedly really to blame.  Welfare and whoopee isn’t a recipe for success, for here or her children.

Who is ultimately to blame for all of this?  Lefties throughout the last 60 years. This is the fruit that they create.  Will they take responsibility?

    I had a brother go the ‘child protective services’ route with my step-dad and mom. He didn’t care for State care. Put an end to that. No fun for my parents either, but everything ultimately ended up ok for them (and the rest of kids) on the other side. Might consider letting him go.

    I watched “Inspector Lewis”. Fox was the best part of it. It kinda looked like they were setting him up for his own show toward the end, but it seems that they didn’t. The boss lady cop was not appealing though. Too much of a “know it all”.

    It was odd that Lewis started out as the comic relief for inspector Morse, but ended up as this super-detective.

    Bit of a classic theme tune

    Not that I watched that either. Even young me found the cop-on-the-edge meme to be worn out



    A senior official in the UK’s single-payer healthcare system says that patients should stop selfishly putting their own health and well-being first in order to improve the funding and “morale” of the NHS.

    Jessica Arnold, who “has held a number of senior roles in the NHS,” argues in the Guardian that the National Health Service would be in fine shape if citizens were willing to suffer in silence until the service can tend to them.

    Arnold makes an impassioned plea for Brits to stop using private healthcare, regardless of long wait times, because the private sector drains staff and resources from the NHS.

    “I strongly encourage people not to use private healthcare services,” she writes. “I implore anyone who uses private healthcare to be aware that they are effectively privatising the NHS by doing so.”

    In a ponderous sentence, she writes: “I ask people to think carefully about the impact of prioritising themselves at a high cost to not only other people who do rely on the NHS, but to their future selves who may rely on the NHS one day because they have an accident or emergency, or become really quite unwell, or can no longer afford to pay privately.” (Emphasis added.)

    Really, you shouldn’t want to get well sooner, or even avoid death by using private healthcare if that’s the only working option? It’s selfish? Fuck off, Jessica Arnold. BloJo should sack her by end of day.

    On this side of the pond it would translate to: “Medicare for all, healthcare for none.”

  17. RichardP says:

    FB – with the OP, you are basically inviting a discussion of the age-old nature vs. nurture issue. You are asking who is to blame wihout mentioning the birth father. He contributed at least half of the nature side (maybe more, depending on the dominant versus recessive gene stuff), and who knows how much of the nurture side (even if totally absent from the child’s life, that absence is itself a nurture contribution).

    I think this is a conversation worth having – but only if all of the potential contributors are identified and included in the conversation.


  18. RichardP says:

    Clarification: It is also possible that the birth mother contributed more than half of the nature side – again, depending on how many of her genes were dominate rather than recessive.

    I read somewhere recently that Watchman was “cancelled” because the creator of the show did not want to create a second season. That would be a different angle than the network cancelled the show – because of low ratings or whatever.

  44. Jack says:

    “By their fruits you shall know them
    My latest post takes a different perspective on this passage from scripture.
    “When one can get out from under the umbrella of sin, one will naturally experience the showers of God’s blessing and grace.  Churchians with a superficial understanding of sin would be tempted to conclude that the fornicating is the sin, but it is not.  Fornicating is merely the fruit of the sin.  Kline’s sin, in this case, was not fornicating, but was in postponing marriage while believing that her sexual “purity” is what made her righteous, worthy, and would bring her blessing.  She compounded this sin by resolving to retain her purity under her own free willpower, instead of trusting in the provision of God (which came in the form of a high school boyfriend / potential husband whom she was originally crazy about).  Unfortunately for the sap who became her future husband, it required a bit of whole-hearted fornicating to wake her up from her deception and idolatry.

    What no one is saying is the obvious – that the Purity Movement turned out to be, for some, a modern reiteration of the age old practice of S1ut Shaming.  Of course, s1uts don’t like S1ut Shaming because it makes them Feeelz ashamed and pressures them to adjust their behavior.

    I’ve read through Jack’s and Gunner’s articles linked to above. I’ve read earl’s comments at Gunner’s thread. All of it reminded me that folks cannot have useful conversations unless and until they have defined their terms and all agree on those definitions. Without that, folks are simply talking to the wind. Which is what seems to be happening at the writings linked to above.

    Among some of the issues that jumped out at me are these – not intended as criticisms but as points that hinder clarity when not defined, and that help the faith conversation in the manosphere when clarity is enhanced by definitions that all agree on. All questions here are rhetorical, meant to trigger thinking, particularly thinking about the effect of writing when your terms are not defined.

    What is the difference between the churchian, the christian, and the redeemed. (Hint: only one of those will get a pass at the Judgement Seat,and, ultimately, that pass is all that matters).

    What dynamic was Paul pointing to when he said that, without faith, it is impossible to please God. And then said whatsoever is not of faith is sin? And then said (paraphrased), if you think God said not to eat meat offered to idols, then don’t eat it (because eating it would display a willingness to disobey God). On the other hand, if you think God didn’t say we couldn’t eat meat offered to idols, then eat it with gusto and a clear concience.

    Can faith exist where proof exists? is proof necessary where faith is required?.

    What is a virgin?

    You do know that “virgins” can get pregnant, right? You do know that the clear pre-ejaculate liquid contains sperm, right? That the pre-ejaculate liquid can impregnate a “vigin” if it can get past the hymen, even if there is no p in v and the guy does not ejaculate, right? You can bet that many girls know this. And therefore there is a logic to a “virgin” requesting a pregnancy test before she has an x-ray.

    No one can say that Jesus is Lord without the help of the Holy Spirit. (1st Corinthians 12:3)

    The natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually perceived. (1st Corinthians 2:14). The mind governed by the flesh (the desires of the five senses) is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh [focusing only on satisfying their five senses] cannot please God. (Romans 8:5-8)

    When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. (Colossians 2:13; NIV) And you [hath he brought to life], who were dead in trespasses and sins; (Ephesians 2:1; KJV) Note that in neither instance did the spiritually dead person bring himself to spiritual life. Lazarus can’t call himself out of the grave.

    Was the Purity movement an attempt to make its practitioners “redeemed” (see above)? The answer is no. The Purity movement was an attempt to keep the girls from getting pregnant outside of marriage and to inhibit the spread of venerial disease. That is all.

    To criticize the folks “damaged” by the Purity movement for not behaving as the redeemed do is to totally miss the distinctions laid out in this post. Only God could call Lazarus out of the grave (Lazarus couldn’t do it). And only God can call the spiritually dead person to spiritual life (the spiritually dead person can’t do it, because they do not perceive spiritual things). As an example of this, think of Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus when he was stuck by the blinding (literally) light. Being part of the Purity movement and being redeemed (brought to spiritual life so that one follows the commandments of Jesus) are two completely separate issues. Trying to stay pure through your own efforts and trusting God to help you do the right thing are two completely separate issues – as some of the commenters in the threads linked to above pointed out.

    What we end up with in the articles linked to above by Jack and Gunner is a big to-do about criticizing the not redeemed for not being redeemed. That is not very useful.

    @Jack said: Churchians with a superficial understanding of sin would be tempted to conclude that the fornicating is the sin, but it is not.

    There is sin.

    There is that which will cause God to reject you at the Judgement Seat.

    Which of those two is more important?

    “Fornication” is on the list of things that the Bible says will cause God to reject you at the Judgement Seat. If you care about whether God rejects you or not, then you should care about whether you are doing that which will cause God to reject you. Since “fornication” is one of those things that the Bible says will cause God to reject you, it it probably important to give a damn about whether or not you are fornicating.

    The Bible says nothing about God rejecting someone at the Judgement Seat because they didn’t get married.

    Jack – don’t get out into the weeds. Just say what the Bible says. And – in this case – the Bible does say that fornicating is the problem, not staying unmarried. Contrary to what I quoted from you at the top of this post, those with a non-superficial understanding of what the Bible says understand that the Bible DOES conclude that fornicating is the sin.

    Choicy, stop being an idiot, mate. The Westminster system of government, from which come a good many of the benefits in Aussie that we take for granted on a daily basis, is rooted in the British monarchical system. The British monarchy is a fundamental part of our system of government which is built upon interlocking tiers.

    Just consider for a moment how much the left in Australia hates the monarchy and wants it gone. Then consider the fact that the left are wrong about everything. Then consider that anything that the left really hates, such as the Catholic Church and the British monarchy, just might have something going for it. The left only hates something which is a threat to its existence. In that regard, the British monarchy is not just critical, it is precious. It is our history and our shared heritage, things which the left constantly desire to undo.

    I stand by the British monarchy.

    What is a virgin?

    The technical definition is a woman who has not had sexual intercourse.

    The biblical definition is a woman who is pure of body.

    In the modern world a woman can have sucked off 50 different men on separate occasions but is technically still a virgin as she has never had intercourse. However, she is not pure in body. Thus, she is not a virgin, at least not in the spirit of the term.
