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.
