Do not walk in darkness

Understanding our times so we know what do, is the message of the Sons of Issachar. Searching the scriptures to see if these things are so is the message of the Bereans. Understanding and truth are the keys to walking in the Light in this world of darkness.

Emotional Entrapment

satan for humansAnother school of thought has to do with ‘emotional entrapment.’ This idea is similar to a starving man being offered a crust of bread.  Any food a hungry man is given will seem like a feast to him.  So, when a man, starving for love, affection and ultimately sex, finally has that desire fulfilled, he can experience an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and have an unrealistic view of his partner.

Sex changes a relationship and no longer will he be thinking clearly.  He confuses sex for love and will stop using logic, reason and evidence because of how she makes him feel for that brief period of time.

Sex makes the relationship seem more important, deep and connected than it really is.  This phenomenon can act like a black hole or vortex, trapping a man in a toxic relationship for years, sometimes,
even for life.

Sex is a powerful physical, emotional and yes, even spiritual experience that connects two people at the soul level.  Today, our culture has minimized the power and importance of sex by reducing it to simply a physical act of pleasure and release.  But, it is much more than that.

People can pretend that it is just a physical act with no other ramifications, but that is simply not true.

Saving All My Love For You

Arguably one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded. All to the glory of a side chick trying to destroy a family. Men aren’t destroying families today. Women are. 70-80% of divorces are initiated by women. That goes up to 90% if she has a college degree. Why? Because they’re not satisfied. Not because of abuse or infidelity. They’re not happy. The women also cheat more than men as well.

I think it’s far past the time to “believe all women” and start holding them accountable.

e-concepts … Debated Issues

A Weekly Publication of Relational Concepts Inc. By Dr. David DeWitt

Debated issues among believers are rational, biblically-based, Christian arguments that are made for both sides of the issue. And the arguments are made (formally or casually) by those who are considered by a plurality of Christians to be mature leaders. Debated issues are not those which are clearly right or wrong. For example, the deeds of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit are not debatable among mature Christian leadership (Galatians 5:19-23).

Three basic questions to consider when debating issues:
1. What is closest to the heart of God?
2. Is this wrong for me personally, or is it wrong generally?
3. Can I state both sides of the issue rationally?

Here is an example of a few basic arguments on each side, to illustrate how we should go about debating the issue of political Involvement.

How did I come up with the Female Delusion Calculator idea?

During my "dating career" as a man living in North America I couldn't help noticing that women often have unrealistic expectations. They see themselves being passed around by those high quality men they feel entitled for, failing to realize those few men are in high demand. Time passes, options shrink, their standards don't change and they wonder why they are still single.

The stats can prove there're not enough high quality men for every girl out there.

What is BRICS?

brics leadersYou may have heard a term recently called “Bricks.” It is specifically relevant in the world banking system and is actually spelled BRICS. It is an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, a group of five emerging economies that are seen as having significant potential for growth and development. The term was first coined by Jim O'Neill, an economist at Goldman Sachs, in a 2001 paper titled "Building Better Global Economic BRICs," which highlighted the rapid economic growth of these countries and their potential to become major players in the global economy.

BRICS officially became a grouping in 2006, when the foreign ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, and China met on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. South Africa joined the group in 2011, and the acronym was changed to BRICS to reflect its inclusion.

History & Tyranny

dhs saluteWhat I am trying to convey is that tyranny is common throughout history and that we are currently re-living it in the USA today. But, as history has proven, tyrannical regimes never last and are unsustainable. Only the free individual working together lasts. My desire is to provide a reality check while at the same time provide hope to people that they are better than they think they are and that we have more power than we think we have and that by working together we can survive and thrive in this cesspool of debauchery.

As many of you may know, I just returned from Rome, Italy where I completed the Rome Marathon on March 19, 2023. Rome is a city built upon a city and for 2,000 years has been the center of commerce, culture and religious importance. It is hard to understand the rich history of that city without actually being there to see it for yourself. It is truly a remarkable place.


UkraineThe conflict in Ukraine, commonly referred to as the Ukraine War, has been ongoing since 2014. The international community and the globalists would like you to think it is a complex and multifaceted conflict that has had far-reaching consequences for the people of Ukraine, the region, and the world. In fact, it is quite simple. In this article, I will briefly explore the history and causes of the Ukraine War, the parties involved, the current state of the conflict and my prediction for the future of Ukraine.


Ukraine has been the center of conflict for hundreds of years. Ukraine, country located in eastern Europe, the second largest on the continent after Russia. The capital is Kyiv, located on the Dnieper River in north-central Ukraine.

A fully independent Ukraine emerged only late in the 20th century, after long periods of successive domination by Poland-Lithuania, Russia, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.). Ukraine had experienced a brief period of independence in 1918–20, but portions of western Ukraine were ruled by Poland, Romania, and Czechoslovakia in the period between the two World Wars, and Ukraine thereafter became part of the Soviet Union as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (S.S.R.). When the Soviet Union began to unravel in 1990–91, the legislature of the Ukrainian S.S.R. declared sovereignty (July 16, 1990) and then outright independence (August 24, 1991), a move that was confirmed by popular approval in a plebiscite (December 1, 1991). With the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. in December 1991, Ukraine gained full independence. The country changed its official name to Ukraine, and it helped to found the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), an association of countries that were formerly republics of the Soviet Union.

The Ukraine War began in 2014, following months of political unrest in Ukraine. The crisis began when the pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted from power by mass protests in the capital city of Kiev. This was followed by the annexation of Crimea by Russia, which was condemned by the international community as a violation of Ukraine's sovereignty.

Nothing Says “I Love You” Like a Prenup


I once heard a rabbi say the possibility of divorce is a positive force in a marriage because it’s an incentive to be well-mannered.

I agree. The urge to be courteous is reduced if your spouse has no escape. At least that’s what Anne Boleyne told me.

However, I would add an important qualifier: the possibility of divorce is a positive incentive for spouses who have something to lose. Not everyone has something to lose. The pain of divorce, and the incentive to protect the marriage, are not necessarily distributed evenly. I think that’s evident in a few statistics.

In the US, women initiate 70 to 80 percent of divorces (American Sociological Association 2015). There are various theories as to why, most of them conveniently aligned with the political beliefs of whoever is doing the theorizing.

Women also win 80% of child custody cases (Grall 2020) and almost all alimony awards (Sorge and Scurlock 2013). At the societal level, there’s a pretty strong correlation between the one who initiates divorce (the woman) and the one who profits by it (again, the woman).

I’m careful about reading too much into correlations. (Did you know the divorce rate in Maine correlates with per-capita consumption of margarine? Bastard margarine.) Just because women generally fare better in family court doesn’t mean they initiate divorce for fun and profit. A few sociopaths aside, divorce isn’t fun for anyone.

However, I think it’s fair to say women are not disincentivized in the same way as men. That turns the Rabbi’s incentive on its head.

The History of Womanhood That Feminists Don’t Want You to Know

Originally written for the relaunch of Ladies Against Feminism in 2010, under the title “The Truth About Women that Feminists Don’t Want You to Know.”

The recent naming of Nancy Pelosi as the “most powerful woman in American history” has sparked national discussion on both the history of women in America and the nature of woman’s power. As Speaker of the House, Mrs. Pelosi holds the highest civic position any American woman has held to date, and her hand in putting through the recent Health Care Bill will have huge historic implications. Though we don’t see it as a great advance for women to finally be oppressed by one of our own, this is undeniably a kind of power.

But behind this recent tribute to Mrs. Pelosi is this presupposition: “Women find their power in holding the positions of men – the traditional women’s role has no power. The power traditional women exercised in the past doesn’t count.”

Americans are ready to believe this because they long ago adopted a feminist view of history. Before feminism led women from the kitchen to the boardroom, we are told, women’s minds withered in the confines of a “comfortable concentration camp,” their talents never developed or given room to benefit society. Before feminism bought women the positions of men, woman’s influence was hushed and smothered beneath the oppression of male dominance. Before feminism invented justice, equality, and rights for women, women were deprived of education, opportunities, property, and power.

All thanks to feminism, we are now surely the strongest, smartest, most capable, most valued, best educated generation of women the West has ever seen. So we are to believe.

Young ladies, this is for you!!!

meghan markle black bikiniA woman arrived in a store wearing clothes that showed her body too well. The shop owner took a good look at her, asked her to sit down, looked straight into her eyes and said something she will never forget in life.

“Lady, everything that God has made valuable in this world, is covered up and hard to see and find."

1. Where can you find diamonds?
• In the ground, covered and protected.

2. Where are the pearls?
• Deep in the ocean, covered and protected in a beautiful shell.

3. Where can you find gold?
• Under ground, covered with layers of rock and to get there you have to work hard and dig deep.

Bill Maher - What’s up with that?

Maher noted that a recent Gallup poll shows an exponential increase in those who self-identify as LGBTQ and that people are allowed to ask, “What’s up with that?’

“It wasn’t that long ago when adults asked a kid ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’,” he said. “They meant what profession.”

Alexander J.A. Cortes

arrogant man women listA man has enraged the internet by penning his 12 tips on “how to be a beautiful woman” including telling ladies they should shave and wear pink.

Alexander J.A. Cortes, from California, posted the list to Twitter, where it’s since gone viral, with people branding him “horrifying.”

Cortes, who describes himself as a trainer and a writer, titled the ridiculous list “How To Be A Beautiful Woman.”

He advises women to be thin, be able to cook, to have long hair and wear makeup, be “feminine and graceful,” be fashionable and also wear “pink and feminine colors.”

They should also shave — which “should go without saying” — and lastly they should “love men” and “listen to men.”
