Born again Christians and loving the lord jesus almighty
« on: April 20, 2020, 12:20:51 PM »
One thing I have noticed over the years are the amount of Born again Christians in the USA and as I would call them religious fanatics..

So many guys want a women who will accept jesus Christ into her life and so on.. Ok everyone has some kind of religion I guess ( I don't ) that is up to them.

But what women is going to want to let Jesus Christ in to they life the way so many of these fanatics want..

None I think!!

Jesus loves you brothers!!

I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!

A loyal wife!! I don't think believing in Jesus makes anyone loyal! Only have to look at the Pope and his lot who are sticking their bits all over the place often where they shouldn't be!!  :laugh:

Fanatics irregardless of flavor make me uncomfortable and I tend to mitigate them from my circle.

Yes I have a faith (belief in Christ) and try to live it best as I can. Mostly I fall short. A couple years back some sweet young girl and what I hope was a grandparent spoke to me in parking lot about there Savior Jesus Christ. When I told them that I was 'saved' and believed in the claims of Christ they were confused. I sort of suspect they thought I was talking of a different Christ.

What I am curious about, do you Steve see a larger group of these 'Born again Christians' searching for a bride in Russia?

Yes lots from the USA! It is where they all come from..

They all have those funny churches where they charge you $10,000 a year to attend .. if your feeling a bit funny they put their hand on your forehead say a few words, you faint and when you wake up your feeling fine, the lord has fixed you!

Some of them have got into selling a Corona virus potion in a bottle .. not sure how it works I think you flick it over a victim like an exorcist say a few words and your ok.. some time you may have to chuck a bible at the person ..to give a little extra help..

Define 'lots.' I can't imagine that too many of those hyper-evangelical types are looking to the FSU for a woman. Reason being: they've got all the female attention they could want (often illicit, secret-of-the-sacristy stuff), on account of their riches gained from all those $10K membership collections.  :laugh:

There are not many pastors running mega churches and millions or ordinary people attending every Sunday.

I can't say exactly maybe 5/7% may not seem so much but that seems a few any way.. but they always have very specific requirements when it comes to Jesus!

Ah, perhaps like this 'Roosh' fella. Seems like he got bit by the zealot bug.

When you say 5 to 7% I assume that group is traveling to you. You might see a far larger percent communicating with women you represent. Most men will not understand the theological differences between Orthodox faith and let's say a very Conservative Evangelical (Bible Thumpers) faith.

What scares me is how dogmatic these Evangelicals can be.

Roosh has embraced an Orthodox faith, I want to say Armenian.

Not a few  Orthodox 'Christians' I've met would shag another man's wife  / girlfriend and pop down to the Caberet ( pronouncing the 't' )  in a flash and then claim to be a family man..

Then you've got the 'man is the head of the family and women must obey types' ....   

Give me folks with a conscience over religious zealots, every time ..

While I am uncertain about what you are going on about in the first two sentences. I prefer someone with a conscience to a zealot. Bearing in mind that I doubt you should be speaking of a conscience, moral or otherwise.

Assuming you mean mostly Russian blokes here. That’s you viewing the world through your lense. What you refer to is regarded as recreation and not about the wife or family.

Then you've got the 'man is the head of the family and women must obey types' ....   

You’ll probably not get this either. There’s often no ‘must’, the wife of an alpha will generally want to do as he suggests because he’s right and she trusts his judgment. The woman is the neck that turns the head as they say. The subtleties of how women use soft power is likely lost on you. It’s helpful to live in the same country as your wife though.

You’re reporting on things you don’t really grasp here.

Good .. 

I was referring to my not inconsiderable time spent living in two 'Christian' Orthodox nations and observing the behaviour of what our leader refers to as [ my deliberate spelling ] 'alfa' males ..

Bearing in mind that I doubt you should be speaking of a conscience, moral or otherwise.[/size][/font]

I hope you've better at discerning a genuine work of art than offering suggestions as to morals  :coffeeread:

Actually, you assumed, wrong...  I referred to 'Christian Orthodox' Cypriots ...   I didn't even need glasses to observe such habits ...  During my very first trip to Limassol in a taxi to check out a Latvian Russian lady, I was offered trips to Caberets... Most taxi journeys involved the same, even when the driver was told, "I'm a happily married man" ..

Oooh, are we trying to be 'alfa' male bitchy ? ...  I am not the only guy with a mother / mother-in-law who suffers dementia and who, for reasons of work, chose to live apart.. ( one in UK, one in a FSU nation )  only to find this virus has made that time longer than planned ..

Madam and I are coping, thanks

Are you attempting to insinuate something? It would be better to follow the KISS principle, Keep It Simple . . . I will let you figure out the last word.
