I will no longer be working on Red Pill Fallacies. I have been heavily involved in the work of God in Carson City, and do not have time to devote to it. But also because I am seeking a deeper level of consecration. Studying what the red pill believes involves reading A LOT of toxic, negative, mysogynistic materials that make me ill to read them. I will however, leave what I’ve studied so far in place. People need to realize that the whole basis for their psychology/philosophy is based in falsehoods and that anyone calling themselves a Christian would not be adhering to such harmful beliefs. One cannot have fellowship with the works of darkness and be a child of light. Dalrock, Deep Strength, and other so-called “alpha men” will stand in judgment before Jesus Christ for leading people astray and leading them to worship at the altar of idols. Rollo Tomassi is a false prophet who God will hold accountable for the souls he has led astray.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14
In order to fulfill the things of God, we must walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh. As I stated in my article Two types of man, there are only two types. No alphas, no gammas, etc. There is a carnal man, which we are when we are born. In order to attain Christ, we must be re-born in the Spirit (John 3:5). Then we become a spiritual man. The Apostle Paul goes into this in more depth in Romans 8 and in 1 Corinthians 15.
Let me emphasize that we come to Jesus, old things are passed away. We put off our old man, and become a new man in Him. This is because Jesus resides within our Temple. We cannot become a new man of our own efforts. This is carnal. While the Mosaic Law was holy, it was imperfect because it was involved performing ordinances. Jesus put away the Law for its imperfections. We are in a New Covenant. The glory of the Mosaic Law reached its end in Jesus. Paul says in Romans 8:3-4
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Hebrews 7 goes into this in more depth, that the Mosaic Law made no man perfect. That isn’t to say there are not things in the Mosaic Law that we still obey but they are included in the Law of Christ, for we know that the Law is fulfilled if we love God and love our neighbor. Agape love fulfills the whole of the Law.
Paul said “If any man be in Christ he is a new creature.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 The spiritual man is a new creation, a new beginning. We are no longer the same person we were before our re-birth.
I said that to say this, the Red Pill “Christians” (among them Donal Graeme) believe that a woman still possesses the same nature that she had before she became a Christian, that without a husband to control her through his “godly masculinity” she cannot overcome her “base” nature, and will forsake her wedding vows. He believes that during much of history legal law kept woman’s base nature under control, but that with Feminism this is no longer possible. While I agree with them that Feminism has sought to destroy the institution of marriage, and masculinity in our society the Christian manosphere denies the power of God to transform a woman from her natural self to a spiritual woman. For indeed, what of women who have not a husband, virgins and widows? How do they avoid the temptations of the flesh? They have no godly man to adore and be attracted to (please!). They may desire a husband, but they don’t run amuck without one. They believe that the man exhibits the godly qualities to attract and hold her. Is it not then Jesus Christ who works through her in their marriage? Or is it the man?
A Christian woman certainly needs the spiritual leadership of a godly man. I am not an egalitarian, and will be the first to admit that woman does need to submit to her husband in order to protect her from following in the deception of Eve. This does not mean that women alone can be tempted or that man on his own can prevent that temptation. It takes the power of the Holy Ghost and agape love to accomplish this. Ephesians 5 is accomplished through agape love, but agape love is only possible through the workings of the Holy Ghost. Demonstration of the Spirit.
Galatians says that self-control is one of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:23). While the head of man is Christ, it still requires the Holy Spirit working in the woman to follow her husband in godliness. Without the power of the Spirit, no amount of righteousness on his part is going to make her follow him. No amount of faith, self-control, etc, etc. is going to get her to submit to his leadership. I have seen women walk away from godly men walking in the Spirit simply because she fell away from the Spirit, and lost faith.
Woman naturally has a desire to control her husband. She can only overcome this through the power of the Spirit which will help her to submit to him. Man is required to love her as Christ loved the Church, sacrificially, providing her the spiritual leadership that she needs to insulate her from external temptations. Her husband then reinforces the power of the Spirit working in her, by teaching her, leading her. Self-control is of the Spirit, not of her attraction to her husband’s godliness. Both man and woman are tempted of Satan to forsake wedding vows if they do not maintain their marital relationship (1 Corinthians 7), not just woman, so it’s vital that in addition to following the order of marriage, that they maintain the sexual aspect of marriage. The man models Christ, but ultimately it is the Spirit that is going to accomplish these things.
Lastly, I want to emphasize that if it was only the man’s righteousness that kept a woman under control, this would negate 1 Peter 3:1 which indicates that a godly woman can win her unsaved husband through her submission to him.
The Red Pill Christians need to submit themselves to the power of the Holy Ghost so that they will understand that it is not by their power, nor their might but by demonstration of the power of the Spirit. They must learn that their righteousness is as filthy rags, and that both man and woman need the Spirit in order to attain to stable Christian marriages.

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him. Genesis 2:18 RSV
In the Book of Genesis, God creates all the animals and then He creates the Man, His image reflected in human flesh. I first want to state that man is a separate creation from the creatures of the earth and IS NOT an animal by God’s definition. God saw that Man was alone, unlike all His other living creatures, so He decided to create for him a help suitable for him. God caused a sleep to come over Adam, and brought a rib out in order to fashion the woman. Eve is not a clone of him, but it is a separate, biologically distinct creation that is nevertheless a complementary part of mankind. So while we share a common humanity, we are biologically different.
The question has arisen in recent times, whether God intended for man to be polygamous. The primary thing in the Bible that rules against this is that God twice had the opportunity to provide multiple partners for man and He didn’t. At the Creation and at the Flood, God chose to have one man, one woman as the ideal to carry on mankind. In considering this problem, I play the opposition and ask the question, what rules against man being polygamous? Why would being polygamous not be in God’s gameplan? I think the key goes back to the original directive God gave to the man and to the woman, to “be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth.” I’m going to call this command, God’s Imperative. While they are to produce children, and produce them exponentially, the purpose of all this is to replenish the earth, to fill it at the correct proportions. At current, there are near 7.5 billion people upon the earth. In 1900, that was 1.6 billion. So we can see that when man multiplies at a high rate, it overruns the earth. So, if God had given man multiple partners they would have multiplied faster than God intended.
This one male, one female pattern can be seen further throughout the Bible. Animals on the Ark were assembled by pairs. The majority of people mentioned in the Bible were monogamous. At the Flood, not only the animals, but the humans also had only one mate. In scripture after scripture, man is directed to enjoy his wife, not wives. To be satisfied with his wife. Jesus reinforces this ideal when he says that God made two in the beginning. It is true that God did not condemn polygamy in general but it was never his ideal. Abraham had serial wives; Isaac had one wife; Jacob would have chosen only one wife but through deceit and his wives concern for having children, he ended up with two wives and two concubines. Men were allowed to take extra wives in wartime. David also had multiple wives. God did not condemn these relationships because it did not violate His imperative.
Monogamy has been the most stable factor in human history, so one has to ask that if male was naturally polygamous, why there have not been more polygamous societies. It’s because some men choose not to be monogamous. Some men are not satisfied with one wife. And this has been borne out in a recent scientific study. Men and women experience lust, which is natural to our carnal natures, always wanting more than we have.
The Red Pill (and more specifically Rollo Tomassi) puts forward the evolutionary theory that Men are by nature polygamous (Male Imperative) and that Women are by nature both hypergamous (seeking the highest quality mate–the Female Imperative) and monogamous (seeking commitment). I’ve already stated that evolution is not true, it is theoretical in nature, and violates the tenets of the Bible. Rollo in many instances disparages the Bible.
The Male Imperative then is contrary to God’s Imperative of one man, one woman and the directive to replenish the earth. It is born out of man’s lust. While polygamy was allowed, as Christians we should seek God’s ideal and not man’s. The Apostle Paul directs men to have their own wife (again, implying monogamy). Neither the Mosaic Law nor Christianity condones men having harems of unmarried women, of having man exploit the sexuality of women, which the Red Pill and Rollo Tomassi condone. In fact, Rollo in one place tells men they should avoid getting married. He developed something called plate theory and believes powerful men, these “alpha males” should only pursue their self-interest and it is within their self-interest to keep many options open (women as plates) in order to avoid what he calls Oneitis. While Oneitis (the soulmate theory) is false, I would call the Male Imperative a half-truth. It does not meet God’s ideal.
Which brings us to the Female Imperative. How does the Female Imperative measure against God’s Imperative? If woman is naturally hypergamous, that is, she is seeking the most dominant, attractive and powerful mate to marry, that would not meet the ideals of Christianity. Christianity is based not on the natural man, but the spiritual. So, in Christianity, it is not the natural man that matters to God’s kingdom, but the spiritual man. While we all as humans want to have a valuable companion to spend our life with and build the Kingdom of God, women who profess godliness are not looking for any of the qualities suggested by hypergamy, but rather the qualities of a godly husband–provision, protection, and spiritual leadership. Qualities of physical beauty and attractiveness are subjective. In terms of woman seeking commitment in a relationship, of seeking a mate who can meet her needs for safety and security for herself and her children I would say that that portion of the Female Imperative is true. So, also, in terms of God’s Imperative, the Female Imperative is also a half-truth.
God wants us to find a mate that is suitable, both for His directive of replenishing the earth (which is less urgent in these times) and of building the Kingdom of God, building spiritually sound Christian families. He isn’t interested in man’s lustful desire for more than one woman, or in woman’s need for an attractive, powerful mate. He is interested in Christian families, which meets man’s and woman’s needs for companionship, love and stability within our society and the church. A monogamous, loving relationship is God’s Imperative.

There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.–Ecclesiastes 8:8
All power comes from God. He made the Universe and everything in it, within 6 days. He did so just by speaking things into existence. God set man over His creation on earth, giving him dominion over all the creatures of the earth.
God is in control of everything that exists. While man can manipulate his environment to some extent, the things a man has can be taken from him. The Book of Job points to a test between God and Satan to test the righteous man Job. Within a process of time, Job’s sons, his material wealth, even his health are taken from him. One can see from the example of Job how the physical things of this life can be taken away from one. I have seen very healthy men acquire physical disease. One only has to look at the example of John Kennedy, Jr., a man who had everything, who was killed in a flying accident. For a man then to think he has the power is a gross absurdity.
The Red Pill advocates that a man, which they call alpha which the Bible does not even recognize (see my article on Two types of man) can obtain power through his domination of his environment. This includes women, which the red pill gives very little value to, except in so much that women have sexual value. To red pill men, women are only valuable as long as they are young and attractive and can be used in a sexual manner either through a committed relationship or through amoral sex. Rollo Tomassi, in his Red Pill devotional, The Rational Male explains that power in relationships is obtained by the person who needs the other the least.
First, God alone holds power and to whom He will give it (1). Jesus Christ said “All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.” (2) Jesus received all power as God manifest in flesh, and shed abroad the Holy Ghost on the Day of Pentecost. He told the disciples they should go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Father, saying “And ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you (3). The only way to have power in God’s kingdom is to receive the Spirit of God.
Red Pill “Alt-Christianity”, for it is not true Christianity, would have men come to the altar of the red pill rather than to the source of true power, Jesus Christ. It would rather they be lovers of themselves, hedonistically seeing marriage as sexual alone in nature, and aligning themselves with those who deny women’s inherent value as a creation of God and deny that Christ alone is sufficient to combat the evils of Feminism. Somehow evolutionary psychology saves the day for these Alt-Christians and restores their true masculinity. They epitomize the admonition of Paul that in the last days men would be lovers of self, and lovers of pleasure rather than God, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof (4).
The Bible tells us to turn away from these types of people because they do deny the power of God. The Red Pill (secular) upholds evolutionary psychology which is contrary to Christ in its amoral approach to relationships, and the Christian version is still bad for Christian men as it still reduces women to a sexual market value, aligns itself with the amoral red pill advocates, and does not lead men to Christ. It denies the power of God to transform people, and see themselves as the controlling factor in relationships rather than the Spirit and the agape love of Jesus.
From such, turn away.

This is a copy of a post I created for my other blog, The Glorious Wife
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24
Mankind, which includes women, is divided into two distinct types. The carnal man and the spiritual man. These typologies override all others, as at the end of the day, at the end of the book (Revelation), there are only going to be two types, and our destinies will be determined by which we fall into.
The carnal man is the man who is earthy. All creation are descendants of the first couple, Adam and Eve. Consequently, we have their same natures, their DNA, and are subject to temptations and failure just as they were. Even if we are able to “control” ourselves, we are not fulfilling God’s purposes but our own.
What happened in the Garden was a foreshadowing of this. Adam and Eve, by their own carnal, earthy natures, made of flesh and of blood, failed. They gave in to temptation, they allowed sin to overpower them. Because of this, they tried to cover their sins with their own covering of fig leaves. We realize we are naked, and we try to cover up that nakedness on our own.
But God knew something more was required. He slew an animal, and covered them in coats of skins (like a fur coat). God required a sacrifice to cover them. This is both a foreshadow of the Law and of the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It’s my humble opinion that the animal was a lamb.
The lesson of the Garden is, the carnal man is subject to sin and temptation and has to be put off so that we can put on the new, spiritual man. This is why Jesus came, to put away our sins, and to make a way for us to enter into God’s rest, the Holy Spirit.
Red pill theory teaches that men are subdivided according to their natural qualities and abilities. It exalts the alpha male, which is based on innate or developed natural qualities, which have nothing to do with the spiritual man. Rollo Tomassi ascribes to this, as do Alt-Christian red pill proponents. One cannot develop oneself into a spiritual man. One can only be spiritual if one is born spiritually through the Holy Ghost. Jesus himself said “That which is born of flesh is flesh, that which is born of spirit is spirit.” (John 3:6)
The spiritual man is created when we receive God’s Spirit within us and are led by that Spirit. John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” All creation groans and travails for the manifestation of the sons of God, which are those who are filled with His Spirit as the disciples were on the Day of Pentecost. God’s spirit dwells in us and enables us to overcome the old nature, the old Adamic man.
Power doesn’t come through our own self-will. It comes by surrendering ourselves to the Holy Spirit and allowing Christ to live within us. It comes through being led by His Spirit. It’s only then that we can conceive of what it means to die off to ourselves and let Him be in the middle of everything we do. We are no longer living for what we want, what we think is right, but what is demanded of us by Jesus and His love.
This is also the key to understanding Ephesians 5. When this passage speaks of Christ’s self-sacrifice for the Church, this is how a man ought to love his wife. This isn’t just talking about the daily sacrifices that a man makes in his marriage. If we look at this in terms of a marriage with Christ as the Bridegroom and we the Bride–Jesus died off to himself in order to see His wife made holy. He died off to his self-will (Gethsemane) and went to the Cross for her. He did this so that she could receive the best of His love: the hope that is shed abroad by the Holy Spirit. So that they could become one. A man cannot be selfish in his desires for his marriage. He can’t be concerned only with what is best for himself, but also what will help his wife to become her best. After all, she is the reflection of his glory. The more Christ-centered a man is, the more he can impart to his wife the virtues of a Christian walk, leading her in a love for Jesus.
I want to emphasize here that when we seek to do things through our own self-wills, through our own natural force of strength, we will fail. Serving Jesus is not about self-will. It’s important to know God’s commandments, to know what is required, but we also have to realize that it takes the Holy Spirit, and our spiritual discernment in order to accomplish those things. God said, it’s not by might, nor by power but by demonstration of the Spirit.
Submission and leadership isn’t accomplished through man’s natural strength, his superior frame, his superior intellect. It’s accomplished through the workings of the Spirit. I like the old adage that Marriage Takes Three. It takes Jesus to bring together the man and the woman in a marriage that serves Him and glorifies Him. A man who is filled with the Holy Ghost will lead His wife spiritually and seek what’s best for their marriage and for her. A woman who is filled with the Holy Ghost will submit herself to the leadership of a husband and seek to glorify him through her godly behavior, in chastity, holiness and modesty with an obedient heart.
As Christians, we should study the spiritual man, what the Bible says about being new creatures in Jesus. The old, carnal man, our “evolutionary” man so to speak, is put away. DNA has nothing to do with the spiritual man, because Jesus does away with what our human nature tells us to do and it is His spirit that leads us and not ourselves. The Bible tells us that the outer man, that is our flesh, dies, while the inner man, the man of the heart, the new Christian man, is being renewed every day (2 Corinthians 4:16).
