What Kind of Man?

I ended Friday’s blog kind of abruptly with the question, “What type of man are you willing to accept?” That question was following by the idea that the man we accept depends on our relationship with Jesus. In Act Like A Lady, Steve Harvey frames an argument that women have a hard time “catching and keeping” men because we don’t know how they think, but he has not adequately addressed their “stinkin’ thinkin.’” (By the way, I am only up to Chapter 4. He may have some great redemption plan for men in the ensuing chapters.)

Harvey preys on our fear of being alone, without a mate. But what are you willing to sacrifice to “catch” a man who perhaps should be thrown back in the water if anybody does catch him? For instance, Harvey talks to us about how much men need “the cookie”—sex. If I was not as secure in knowing that God commands us to save sex until after marriage, Harvey’s conversation would scare me into thinking that I had to give up the “cookie” to please “my man” even before marriage to keep him from “lining up” someone else.

If someone gives us advice that is contrary to the Word of God, somebody has got to be wrong and it’s not God. Ask Adam and Eve. God told them if they disobeyed Him, they would die. Satan says to them in Genesis 3:4, “You will not surely die.” In their act of disobedience we all…died.
