What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God….For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:9-11, 23
The red pill is full of generalizations that red pill proponents, and Rollo Tomassi like to pass of as iron-clad rules. AWALT (all women are like that) is just one of many. If it is based in the biology of women, then yes, there can be some basis for it, but many of their theories are not. Even the theory that women are attracted to men based on what they can provide is not a hard and fast rule observable in society. While generalizations can be true according to logic, they have to be verified. The red pill likes to paint women as egocentric, which I am going to put forward as not being verified. However, I will have to go into that in more depth later. From my readings, I am not seeing any kind of empirical evidence, but rather theory, even in Rollo Tomassi’s writings, that all women are egocentric.
My purpose for this article, however, is to show that from a biblical standpoint, all men and women are failures in their nature. No one person can say they are righteous. Not when they are held up to God’s standards. The Mosaic Law while holding up righteous laws and principles, could not be upheld by a people who were still living in the carnal natures they inherited from Adam. The Law failed, because as Paul points out, perfection cannot come through our flesh. It has to come through the Spirit of God.
Adam and Eve’s failure in the Garden of Eden, which I will write on soon, showed that both men and women are susceptible to temptation and sin. Eve failed, because as a woman she is susceptible to being deceived. Adam failed because he willfully disobeyed God, not being able to exercise self-control and retain his dominion, not only over Creation, but over himself.
In regards to our modern society, both men and women need to realize that they are sinful in order to make things right. Feminism is a highly destructive force fueled by socialism and tries to invert God’s order, establishing the rule of women. However, the Men’s Movement, of which the Red Pill is part, and Rollo Tomassi specifically, do not correct things. They purport that they are trying to restore masculinity, but they do this at the expense of women, which is clearly against God’s principles and purpose for His Creation. The only hope for humanity as a whole is for all, men, women, Jew, Gentile, to come to Jesus Christ and let him restore Godly order.
Mankind, in it’s natural state, cannot make himself perfect. We fail. Our flesh tempts us. We are all in that sense selfish, only wanting to please our flesh. Paul goes into this at length in Romans 8 when he shows how his body wants to do one thing and his mind tries to correct it. He at last exclaims, “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (1)” Lust takes root in our hearts and sin is the product. The Law gave a temporary solution in that it allowed for atonement of sins, but it was not perfect because it was carried out by priests who would eventually die themselves.
Jesus Christ became the perfect sacrifice for our sins in that He was without sin, and because He lives forever to make intercession for us, so that the intercession, the atonement is continual before God. We repent of our sinful nature, turn from sin, and die off to ourselves daily. This is the only way that both men and women can become righteous and to deny our selfish natures.
