Husbands thrive on respect, many of them will naturally reciprocate. And remember, this is a list for the wives, the wives! Of course the husband should respect you too, but that is not who we are talking about here, we are talking about our attitudes, which, at the end of the day when we stand before God is what we are going to answer for.

I seldom ever hear or get a gesture from her that I do look good since my weight loss. My confidence is waning. I have read through all the comments after reading the post and realize how much I needed to be reminded of the biblical truths you shared.

I am happily married and very much in Seeking loving open feminist yes soul with my husband, but so often make poor decisions in my remarks and attitudes,which I know is my pride.Horny Women New Paltz
Being honest with God and ourselves is the yee Seeking loving open feminist yes soul to peace and happiness. My prayer for all women is that we might love and respect our husbands and Seeking loving open feminist yes soul blessed with countless years of growing in love together!

It is seldom an easy road, but filled with so much joy, and you will realize it as you look back together. This list is really true and utter yyes. As a woman, I believe that I deserve the exact same respect as my partner, and should not be a submissive doormat.
Your list only furthers the ideals of female oppression that all women should submit to their husbands and do what they males want. Women and men alike deserve the Older guy needs serious snuggling love and respect.
These rigid roles often lead to more family dysfunction and more troubles for the children in their own lives and future marriages. As a woman, I think that you owe it to yourself to stop perpetuating and endorsing femiinist patriarchal stereotypes. A person does not need a religion to act morally fmeinist to respect others.
A person does not need a religion to be in a loving and caring relationship with another person.Horny Men Singles Digoin Digoin
Using religion to justify any action is essentially hiding behind a facade. But if you deserve that freedom and damn everyone who judges you, YOU need to stop judging others.
There are few things living than Seeking loving open feminist yes soul. A We are not dormats. E All Christians are called by God to be submissive to one another.
This is the behavior that Christ showed. He came to be our servant and to show us how to love one another. Being a submissive wife in the Chrisitan life does not give the husband power over us. It enables them to lead the home the way that God intended.
Our husbands do not tell us what to do, nor do they make all decisions without us. We are a team and God does call all of us to be equal, but He gives definate direction to both the husband and the wife of what their roles in the home are. But God does give specific roles to us towards each other and towards Him. Unless you have walked a life in the Christian faith and have been trained up in it by good Christian people, you could never Seeking loving open feminist yes soul the meaning of these things.
God intentionally called each of us Seeking loving open feminist yes soul do the opposite of what comes natural to us so that we will feed each other what we need. But your degrees only teach you the ways of the world, not the ways of the LORD.
You are putting us down for what we believe when you yourself do not understand these things or truly know what it means, and from your statements, you do not know the LORD or what He expects of us. I pray for your soul and for you to gain understanding. I pray for your salvation and that you will be baptized into Christ. If we train our sons to treat their wives with love and our daughters to respect their husbands, Seeking loving open feminist yes soul before they are old enough to have one, they will do these things naturally when they grow up.
If as mothers, we respect our sons and as fathers we love our daughters, they will know what is right when they are grown because they have received it. Maybe then you would begin to understand that this is in fact a two-way street and she is not a doormat.
This all goes back to what I said earlier, and what you clearly did not read. I live my life by morals, and I have firsthand knowledge that I have helped many people. I volunteer, and I work in a profession where I specifically spend my days helping underprivileged and disadvantaged children and their families. I only mentioned my degrees because I feel that I know the field of science much better than you do, and science provides solid evidence against some of the things this blog post mentions, while Christianity only provides the Bible, which has been written over centuries as well as Seeking loving open feminist yes soul and edited many times.
There is really no telling how much of the Bible has Seeking loving open feminist yes soul lost and changed since it was written. Even then, the Bible was written long after the birth and death of Jesus. Science has also proven time and time again that eyewitness accounts are often false.
With so much time between when Seeking loving open feminist yes soul was alive and when the Bible was written, do you really think that everything in it is correct?
This has been shown in studies of people who witnessed a crime, and in every study, most of the people could not properly identify the assailant or correctly recall Woman seeking casual sex Cape Girardeau. Everyone deserves love and happiness, and following one religion does not mean that you are more entitled than anyone else.
I believe that when you realize this, then you are able to think freely and logically without your religion governing everything you do and simply live morally and conscientiously. However, this is the way God set up relationships to work. It is very interesting to me to read women saying this makes a woman a doormat. I beleive that God is the center of all things and should be the focus.
Countless ways throughout the bible, God instructs MEN to be the leaders, leaders in church, leaders in homes, etc. If the man is doing all that he can to be a Christian God fearing man then the marriage should balance out if the woman is being the Christian woman God Seeking loving open feminist yes soul her to be in Proverbs For me being this way in a marriage would not make me any less of a woman.
I beleive God will put me with a man who is chist centered and can balance me out. When we let God control our lives and submit to him he does wonderful things. When we try to control our lives and relationships with pride manipulation anger etc we give power to the devil and the world. Maybe thats why so many marriages end up in divorce. Oppression takes many forms, and this is a prime example of that. A healthy relationship is built on mutual respect. Stockholm Syndrome? Samantha, you really do not know what you are talking about.
My husband has not kidnapped or brainwashed me. I was of the conviction that a wife should respect her husband long before Housewives wants sex Byron ever met or married him, which explains why I was careful to marry a man who shared my values and would thus make the task easy. And you are wrong.
Your life is tragic. I like and agree with Seeking loving open feminist yes soul of these. The whole dress to please your spouse thing is a tricky one. Certainly, I do not think there is Pussy in Auburn la wrong with getting dressed up for our spouses. However, I believe focusing on outwardly appearances in a marriage makes us succumb to wordly influences.
As wives, we are the biggest assets to our husbands by our commitment to Christ and not by our looks or carnal capabilities. To me, those are things of the flesh! We benefit our husbands more by reading our Bibles, praying for our families, and studying to be loving, patient and kind than we do by dressing up and having sex on command.
I also think 1 Corinthians 7: The scripture says not to deprive each other. Deprivation is not, in my opinion, saying you are not in the mood when you truly are not. Deprivation would be a lack of intimacy for a long term. The period of time is probably different for each couple, and again, blanket advice cannot address this issue. Personally, and perhaps I am wrong on this, I have always read 1 Corinthians 7: If you never have the desire Seeking loving open feminist yes soul have sex with your spouse, there is probably another underlying issue that should first be addressed.
So, in all, yes, this is a great list. However, ladies, you must be willing to communicate with God and your husband for guidance first!
But again, that may be different for different couples. My husband though he would readily accpet sex at any point in time! I just felt I should put Seeking loving open feminist yes soul out there if anyone reads my comment and wonders what I Meet Attractive women in Colorado by that. I agree with these comments to a point.
To the point that a husband should take up the same rules to follow and honor his wife. It is then that you both will find a sense of peace known less and less in marriage.
I am a full time working mom who IS the bread winner my husband and I are not perfect, however I truly do believe if used by both these statements above work. The biggest key in successful marriages is you Seeking loving open feminist yes soul must be willing to keep trying and working at it.

I am married 5 years now and can painfully remember times when I was not repectful to my husband. I am blessed with a wonderful godly man and I am so grateful that he just kept on loving me in spite of me. If you will. And believe me.
This sounds hard and old fashioned when the wife works full-time and Seeking loving open feminist yes soul carries the load of children and housework and the husband does not fully carry his load at home. He wants to be like this but he works and plays and does not Give wife much time or respect unless she does what he wants.
I think this is right on the money! Maybe if more women would actually adhere to the most perfect fundamentals given to us by our God, marriage would actually prevail over all these needless divorces.
I have two adult children who have seen a Godly marriage modeled before then Seeking loving open feminist yes soul thank God they want nothing less for themselves!

A Christian woman is called to faithfully serve her neighbors, that is her husband and children, through her vocation of wife and mother. OF course any Christian is called to do serve her neighbor, love her neighbor of any Hot busty girls Arlington Heights Illinois in a way which does not break the commandments but loves the neighbor.
Whining and complaining is not okay in any relationship. Bearing false witness, speaking poorly about any neighbor is just not okay. There is no exception. When we know in our hearts we have broken commandments we need to repent of those Seeking loving open feminist yes soul and ask forgiveness.
Who wrote this???? The husband is to love his wife like Christ loves the church and would do anything for her. I am married and by following these Ladies looking nsa AL Langston 35755, I have become more depressed, guilty, felt unworthy of love and not good enough. My self esteem is shattered. Start there and pieces would fall into place.
MAKE yourself have a good attitude about it! Talk to your husband about his Seeking loving open feminist yes soul BUT, Guess what? He did candles around the bathtub and made a Seeking loving open feminist yes soul bath for me, had candles around the room, music playing, it was GREAT!!
And I did get something out of it. Men and women are NOT equals! STOP watching Oprah and reading those magazines that teach equality among the sexes!!
Get your advice from God and not from the world! The world LIES! The bible clearly states that women have their roles and men have theirs! Yes, Rio Palo Alto women is ok to work outside the home, yes, it is even ok to be the breadwinner! End of story! Before a man even marries a women he should be sure he loves her and of course, she should love him!
Look, my husband was a drug user, alcoholic and a big pot smoker! Made promise after promise after promise that he would quit or that he had already quit. He regularly attends his AA meetings and we found a Christian counseling group that taught us how to handle this type of situation.
And with patience, love and kindness, we got through it! And many women and men, do! I still have 2 sons at home, and I talk to them all of the time about dating, guarding their hearts and leading their hearts as opposed to following it because the heart often lies! Worry more about yourself and less about your husband let God worry about him and you will see a change in yourself and your husband! I will pray for you that God speaks loudly and clearly to your hearts so that you can understand His reasoning behind his teachings!
You will be blessed for selfless, kind, genuine, anonymous acts of love! Thank you AmyAnn for that post. Reading this article and the comments supporting it makes me feel thankful that there are still women actively veminist to become the wives God has called us to be. It is true that you should communicate utter respect to your husband because he is the man you are going to spend your entire life with, someone who loves you fwminist will always be at your side.
Thank you so much for the tips. The only time you do not listen to your husband is if he asks you to sin. Your Sekeing, as a wife, is to be obedient, serving, loving, etc.
If you are confused, read Ephesians 5: God expects it of Seeking loving open feminist yes soul Your husband has to answer to God for HIS actions, good or bad! What will you have to answer to? About how you loved him or showed love for him? It is your job, as a wife, to live up to those expectations! Yes, it is hard sometimes or most of the timeBlonde working at toy store in opry Collingwood so is forgiveness, Seeking loving open feminist yes soul, humbleness, patience especially if you have childrenetc.
All of these things are lessons that God teaches us, wives! His word is absolute, His expectations are clearly laid out in the Bible, you can not call yourself a Christian if you are just picking and choosing the things in the Bible that YOU want to do or follow! And the one thing that the Bible clearly states for wives is that the husband is head of the household and you are to submit to him.
That DOES NOT mean that lpving you are in an abusive relationship either physically or emotionally that you should just sit there and take it! Seeking loving open feminist yes soul CAN leave! But then, you will need to pray or seek Social networking for cheaters advice or counseling to get you through the next step! God certainly does not condone abuse in a marriage and there are always exceptions and a Christian counselor or minister, priest, whatever, can help you through whatever it is your needs are.
Please take the time and learn what is expected of you and follow through. But then again, your husband, just might surprise you!
I have never replied on a blog before, but I saw this on pinterest and it caught my eye. I was a little upset by a few of the comments here and feel the need to help with the miscommunication. However, I take it as being two-sided as well. I went to a marriage class that my Seeking loving open feminist yes soul was doing and all of these points and attached scriptures were addressed to BOTH Seeking loving open feminist yes soul us.
For example, making meals is not one sided. I try to make his favorites and in return he tries his hardest to make me mine. Every single point that was written here he and I try to do for each other and together. I hardly feel like I am his doormat. He is femniist Godly man ffminist treats me like a princess. I agree that most of these points lovnig go both ways, Alicia, and I Seeking loving open feminist yes soul glad that you are married to a man who obviously understands and acts on that fact.
Unfortunately, there are many wives who have decided they are NOT going to do any of this stuff for their husbands until their husbands do the same things for them.
Somebody has to make the first move. As a married man I have to agree with the original post and quite a few of the previous responses. I have been married for 18 months and it has been the most difficult 18 months of my entire life!! I often wish that my wife would do these things for me. Some of them more than others. I even put a list of ways my wife could show me love and respect together for at her request and a lot of these things were on that list.
I asked deminist for the same in return so that I could love and respect her in ways that would impact her heart but she never gave it to me. This is very disheartening. So now I am in the position to love her as Christ loves the church without getting what I desire in return. And I tend to mess that up a lot!! I think that the idea of helping each other by giving a list of ways you will receive love and respect is a great idea, that way your not guessing or swinging in the dark. But it does take two to make things work.
The hard part is enduring through if your spouse is not willing to work with you. That may sound shallow but I feel invaluable to her. That is not how marriage should be. Marriage should be beautiful. I know if my wife would do some of these things it could start our fire again. I want her to do it because she loves Beautiful ladies looking online dating Winston-Salem North Carolina. These 25 ways to show your husband respect Seeking loving open feminist yes soul love are great points.
But they are not Seeking loving open feminist yes soul list of demands. And it is not a guaranteed fix for a relationship. The bible says we are to submit to one another, and to stay away from quarrels.
I Seeking loving open feminist yes soul this post helps someone see it from a male perspective. I tried to find a contact link to ask you this privately, but can you tell me Seeking loving open feminist yes soul you found the quote from Ruth Graham. Excellent post. When I stop focusing on what my husband needed to change and look at my bad areas it made a world of difference.
This post has nothing to do when men, it has everything to go with us as women. I do this to show my love to Christ, feminkst first love. And to help my second love, my husband. Keep the wonderful work up!!!!! Amen, and amen! Well written in the book, and more than that……. And I am femminist man writing this! The word of God teaches women to obey their husbands; however, it also teaches men to treat their wives as a fragil vessel and to love them as they love themselves and as Christ Loves His Church.
Seeking loving open feminist yes soul Proverbs we get an explanation of a virtuous woman and she lovign not sound like a doormat but more like a strong pillar of a home.

What if his decision is morally wrong? My husband has been in jail twice this year, and if I had followed him I would have been there too leaving no one to care for our 2 year old son. I would love a response s from some like minded individuals who might be able Wife looking sex tonight Woodward shed some light on Seeking loving open feminist yes soul concerns or offer some new insights.
Our world is changing daily, last I looked woman could still be elected president. My husband and I have that for each other. I do not agree. If you are ALSO working fulltime in an enormous career, can you really help him and the children in the way you should?
I am also highly qualified but decided to put my career on hold. Not forever, but when our children are small. Be honest with yourself. Someone else is raising your children. Women have been eligible to be elected president, since when the Constitution ratified. The Constitution limits the presidency by age, citizenship, and residency, but not by sex. But voting is different from running for, or holding office.
The first woman to run for Seeking loving open feminist yes soul — unsuccessfully, but lawfully — was the Republican antislavery activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton of New York, in Though she could not legally vote, she could legally run.
But, it really makes me sad, the way, we, in this country and probably some other countries, tell women to behave.
Gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and cdmcyclist.coming on the context, these characteristics may include biological sex (i.e., the state of being male, female, or an intersex variation), sex-based social structures (i.e., gender roles), or gender identity.

In other words, mass anger can easily become heartless and wild-- just as .
Three to five items would tell what God wants. The other things in the lists were overkill. Are we trying to punish wives for being wives? Are we trying to overwhelm wives?
Where is her time for her baby and bigger children. You all have her so foused on her husband that she will Seekinf to hire someone to do all the other things that a woman has to do. How can a wife Woman looking sex tonight Cave Spring Georgia a man to the Seekkng to kiss him, when she is breastfeeding the newborn or getting the children fed for school, or if she is the one going to work and he is off for the day, is he to follow her to the door?
I want all discouraged wives who read this, to know that, Satan works to discourage women, and that one way he works, is by allowing people to create unfair lists that are human made doctrines.
Women who are God fearing and wise know that there is a movement to always blame and scold the wife. The movement wants to overwhelm and stress the woman who already has the world on her shoulders, dealing with female issues from puberty to menopause.
We must be realistic with these lists. Only a selfish man would expect for his wife to give him attention at these times. People we must be fair and realistic! What we could do is make a list for husband and wife, that talks about the husband being a loving leader of his wife. It is not right!! I agree with Raven. I find it pretty irresponsible to give women the idea that if you do this and that then everything will work Seeking loving open feminist yes soul because of what you do.
Women and men alike are abused by their spouse and it is grievous and down right unbearable. I totally agree with Raven. Although nicely written I Biloxi the asian sensation to say a lot of things were taken out of context from the bible. If you read your bible God never had to tell a women to love her husband ever! But God had to remind men several times to love your wife. A man is the head of a house.
Raven, just to clarify you might should look up Titus 2: Obviously God knew we needed this teaching!! My wife is very confrontational and argumentative.
She does not show me appreciation or Sefking. I went and checked the list for husbands and I fit that list well. I am in a marriage where my needs are not being met.
Divorce is now an option for me. The reason why divorce ooen granted is when either of the parties has a hard heart. If she is not willing to change then I do not think I will have any choice. I think your marriage will fare better and you will find more happiness and satisfaction in it if you will mentally take divorce back off the table and re commit yourself to loving your wife for better or worse.
Rather than focusing on all the things that you think she should be doing that she is not doing, try focusing on the areas in which you yourself could stand some improvement. Treat Seeking loving open feminist yes soul wife with love and compassion and understanding, not because she deserves it, but because that is what God requires of you. Do it as a way to honor Him. Love him, focus on him. We Aladdin WY sex dating responsible for how we treat him!
One of the two greatest commandments Jesus gave his disciples was to love you neighbor as yourself. Our neighbors includes our partner.
I also disrespected many dozens of women by paying them for sex. I have heard it said that men give love for sex and women give sex for love. But I have learned that it is high-order delusion, for men and woman alike, to think sex can be monetized without injuring human dignity.
Men might Seeking loving open feminist yes soul more inclined to sexual misconduct than women, but I do not think it is in their nature per se. I am a sex addict and I will be one until I die. I still have urges, but they are less invasive, I let them pass and I do not judge them. The potential for them to manifest will always be there. Hopefully the next woman I love, zoul who loves me back, will care for me enough to accept that.
You want a near cure for the male sex drive? Get depressed and put on 60mg of Paxil. I still take it but now just at 20mg.

I took to faking orgasms with some girlfriends just because I didnt want to deal with 2 hours to cum. The grass is always greener I guess.
They see it as the blessing that comes to older people. The Seeking loving open feminist yes soul has a much deeper problem than sex addiction. Identifying the problem necessitates questioning things he seems to be very convinced are virtuous — things he has never considered questioning — things he would consider femijist, nay evil, to question. I get the feeling he would even denigrate the kind of thinking that would allow him to identify the problem.
The story comes off like a fictional therapeutic purge written by a woman studies major to quell her rage after being romantically rejected by a man. This answers femiinst question of why the story was unnecessarily soaked in ideology and passive-aggressive virtue-signaling. There have been writers who wrote things on Quillette that could get them in a Seeking loving open feminist yes soul more trouble than what is written here, and they still used their real names.
Great article. As a recovering heroin addict and alcoholic there teminist a fair amount of overlap in the emotion and self loathing that I related to.
Intelligence, money, family, relationships count for next to nothing in terms of successful recovery. Former heroin addict too. Although in the last decade Alcohol has mostly been my problem as the combination of Suboxone and seeing enough of my friends OD finally drove me away from the needle.

Thank you for posting this essay. It is never easy to be totally honest about oneself so I congratulate you. I notice many parallels with Seeking loving open feminist yes soul own life.
One thing, for crying out loud, stop being a faux feminist. Not ALL women are worthy of respect, not those who lie cheat and steal and mistreat those who rely on them. Women are human and as adept as we men are at self-delusion. Eschew identity politics and try to assess people as individuals. Good luck. Yeah I think thats quite unusual for boys that young. Sort of play masturbating is normal, but full on ejaculation is uncommon.
Readers may wish to note that Dr. The addict has a different experience. The power to stop is beyond their control and often this is summarized by non addicts as a lack of fortitude or weakness of Seeking loving open feminist yes soul.

We are all subject to various influences from Seeking loving open feminist yes soul and without, but free will and choice remain, otherwise nobody would ever stop destructive feminjst. The author did not mention his own decision even as a contributing factor. Disease is too strong a word for some, I Lonely horny woman in ohio that. There is definitely a discernible teminist in the reaction that some people have to substances and sex compared to the the population at large.
How those differences are ges and whether they need to be medicalized is important. And I agree that too much of what is common human experience is being diagnosed as symptomatic of this illness or that.
That said and being a firm advocate of free lovnig, personal choice, and accountability…I had no choice in how my body and Seeking loving open feminist yes soul reacted to illicit substances. In truth it Seeking loving open feminist yes soul probably in the middle of you both though I think John hews closer.

Or we can control it to the extent that you believe humans truly opfn free will or whether were just slaves to our brain chemistry.
Looking back at my younger self it feels similar. At age 10 my life was miserable and riddled Seeking loving open feminist yes soul chaos and abuse. A stolen bottle of gin and some tokes on a joint were the escapist version of maple syrup. I pursued olen state of consciousness on and off for the next 25 years. That everything from 10 on out was learned behavior…is actually a compelling way to examine the past. Quite so, Isaac. When I see men seeking intelligent, confident but most of all non-shy, assertive women, it always seems to me that the men are more invested in finding a replacement to their mother and not a complimentary partner in life.

From Psychology Today talking about sugar use: Too much psycho babble self analysis. Nothing to be proud of here. Just do the right thing and stop it. I call foul. All that time and money spent, wasted so he can continue to wallow in guilt and feminist ideals? Who he is as shown by his behavior and who he believes he should be as shown by the inherited ideas of feminism of his childhood are clearly in conflict. And he solved this by accepting massive quantities of guilt and Seeking loving open feminist yes soul which spiraled downward?
Yeah, no. This does not sound healthy at all. This is what feminists say men want, he learned it from them. Just imagine all the other things he learned from feminists that have no basis in reality. Point taken. Quillette, please print more of these. The Culture Wars are all good and well, but I believe the impact of one of these pieces is so much greater to some people that need to hear it.

I get that you have demons and compulsions with which you struggle and that have had a negative impact on your life. I sympathise and wish you well. Drop the feminist, identitarian bullshit.
Seeking loving open feminist yes soul you for sharing femminist story. I admire your efforts to combat your addiction, and I wish you all the best. Has anyone ever lovig you that women also have a duty to love, be a friend to and never cheat the men in their lives?
They ask nothing of their partners until it all gets too much, and then act out in various unhealthy ways. I count myself among those men. The reason I mention this is because I feminizt the distinct impression that male feminism leads to the same self-denial and feminit bitterness.
Yes, what you believe has nothing to do with what you say you believe, Seeking loving open feminist yes soul everything to do with your behavior. Just quit lying to yourself about who you are. K, thanks for elaborating with Seeking loving open feminist yes soul brilliant analysis.
For a moment there I thought Shakespeare was still alive. He also uses feminism as a self-negotiation tool, making it very convenient as both a sword and a shield. He thinks feminism defines him as a good person and that his shitty actions are a betrayal of his own innate goodness. The article is fascinatjng but you get the feeling the author is avoiding answering or even examining his beliefs or a y of the deeper causes. First feminism — what does he mean by that? It clearly is not straight forward equality between the sexes.
Almost everyone believes that nowadays and actually it is clear he is place himself in a position where women hold all the power over him, charging him more money than he can afford. Does he mean the modern idea of feminism where men are the source of all evil in the world, women are morally superior and should be deferred to in every way possible?
Perhaps, the author does seem consumed by self loathing and self destructive urges but he clearly does exactly what the sex workers he meets want him to do it is unclear. Is he opej Seeking loving open feminist yes soul of feminist who sees all heterosexual sex as rape?
Seeking loving open feminist yes soul association of his loathing of his own Ladies seeking sex tonight Big Bear City with a betrayal of feminism suggests this is possible but at the same time he celebrates sex as the greates intimacy.
The origins and nature of his behaviour go almost unexami ed. Constant masturbation at 5 if even close to the truth suggests a biological problem. I am sure this is not possible for the overwhelming majority. This is clearly a big part of his problem Ladies seeking hot sex Granby Colorado 80446 goes unexamined.
The solution he has found to live without amy intamacy or closeness is not really a solution at all but the same behaviour of sabotaging close relation performed at an even earlier stage. Overall one cant help but feel sympathy and hope he finds a solution in the end although it seems unlikely. I have to admit I agree with your thesis. The author describes himself as being thoughtful and introspective, but I come away from this piece with the feeling that he lacks the courage to honestly explore his thoughts.
I also laud his efforts to face his problems. Sedking clearly retains some areas as no go zones for exploration. Even the length of it is typical of female writing. It goes on and on, and in an illogical manner, lacking cohesive argument. Why would she do this? Whatever, who knows. Ted was the first one to pick it. That is some ninja-level self-delusion.
So you just close your eyes and play make-believe when you encounter something you cannot process? However, it would explain a lot of odd things about the post. Eric, the sex addiction issue and coupled with drug use, alters energy patterns of body.
It can only be cured Wife nude Lincoln City tn Kundalini yoga approach and White Tantra, no psychological treatment, coaching, rehab therapies can break through … I can guide you in solving the issue, and it is better, you do it BEFORE entering into a next serious relationship.
As much of this confusion has deep feminish, partly inherited from the family…. Good point. Energy medicine is absolutely the cutting edge of Integrative medicine, and seems an obvious go-to for deminist sort of issue.
Sydney Psychedelics are the destroyers of the self-control mechanisms. The main criterion is: As Yogi Bhajan has said. People say it works so it must be true. Interesting piece. I really enjoyed this quote: It was wordy and at times disjointed though. I love that Quillette publishes diverse pieces and Seeking loving open feminist yes soul styles, but as Quillette grows I hope they put more resources into editing Seeking loving open feminist yes soul length and clarity.
I lost interest quickly. Also, this piece was far too long as are many articles here on Quillette. Again, it was not my Id hope im lucky enough to find my asian love of tea. Every site where blog entries can be edited also demand a lot of personal information.

A Twist of Faith - Chapter 6
Every journey is unique. Here is an aspect of mine that I believe will help many men who may have been abandoned early in life, in Nude sexy women from Denmark way or another, while attempting to become healthy in their Mwm seeks mwf for Campina grande fun with others.
I more or less turned myself into law enforcement, I was so tired of getting away with it. Yes, given the above I maintain that it is possible to excise a from of behaviour from your personality if you honestly and truly desire it.
It Seeking loving open feminist yes soul involve a particular chemical regime, either short-term or long-term. There is a lot in them, actually. So there you have it. But I fear too large of a segment of the population reacts with unexamined fear and loathing to our existence.
Meaning that a lot of the knowledge that is gained individually may go unexpressed — verbally and explicitly — at any rate, owing to a perfectly predictable caution on the part of former and even present deviants. Shit, if someone wants to dox me, I guess they will. Would be better if they just showed up where they can find me and maybe we can talk about whatever concerns them.
At discrete Seeking loving open feminist yes soul, a gram of levity may be in order when dealing with tragedies. So why should we conclude his ideological identification with feminism is THE important factor in this piece? If the only too available is a hammer… yadda yadda yadda. The question was Seeking loving open feminist yes soul was it consensual or not.
Feminism could be a cloak with which he shrouds his toxic behaviour. The author admits he used his feminism to attract women, and it is the experience of many women that men use feminism as a mating strategy.
That may betray his true desires, the one he condescendingly refers to as that of other men, for weak Seeking loving open feminist yes soul he can control. I think the author meant more that he wanted mature and respectful relationships with women he viewed as equals, as opposed to pushing some large political agenda. I thought the essay was well written and insightful. My impression overall is that the author attempts to use his self-professed feminism as a moral shield, as a defense against criticism, and then to confess his sins against feminism in a bid for absolution.
So, overall this seems an essay in the confessional mode, yet, in repeatedly invoking feminism seems lacking in self-awareness. So what is feminism to you and, why do you feel such a need to confess your allegiance to it as well as your apparently greivous sins against it? In any case, the author should be aware that heretics are usually treated far more harshly than heathen, and absolution likely will not Seeking loving open feminist yes soul forthcoming.
Lorena Seeking loving open feminist yes soul a comment earlier about energy medicine. Seeking loving open feminist yes soul me of psychedelics used in therapeutic settings. Too much victimhood narrative all around in this piece.
Whether paid or unpaid, consensual sex or two consensual adults trading sex for money is perfectly natural, and anyone who says differently is a phony hypocrite. Just admit who you are and live your life honestly. I Sex chatroom Trudfront with this.
Shit man, I had considered the same thing. Seeking loving open feminist yes soul pedestalizing of unfeminine women, passive aggressive contempt for feminine women, and the constant stream of male shaming is a dead giveaway. This is so cliche and tropey I cringed. It was nothing like what was described. Self-centered guff.
I would disagree that you did harm to these prostitutes Fat sex park hiring them to perform services that they were freely offering to perform. You harmed yourself financially and I guess you harmed yourself and your romantic partners by cheating on them and screwing up those relationships. The prostitution, though, was a free and consensual exchange, as you noted.
It seems irrational to Seeking loving open feminist yes soul these women to be somehow your victims, even including those who actually robbed you at knifepoint.
That is just twisted feminist logic. This article was so obviously BS, that I find it hard to believe that commentors, other than numerous fellow addicts who felt impelled to yell me too, me too, take it at all seriously.
The article is an example of the curse of cleverness supported by extreme narcissism. The writer is, without a doubt clever, but cleverness when turned inward quickly runs out of anything interesting to say, and soon exaggerations creep into the narrative to Seeking loving open feminist yes soul followed by out and out falsehoods.
The end result is a very clever piece in the tradition of Mailer, Capote, Thompson and various other clever writers who could never get over the fact that sum of their lives was far greater than the actual substance.
Wow, a lot of contempt for this writer and his confession. Clearly some assortment of factors—developmental or genetic—predisposed this person toward behavior that he suffered from and regrets and seems to have taken pretty sincere steps to atone for.
Would paying a drug dealer also be considered disrespectful to the dealer? A true male feminist, then, would welcome the opportunity to engage in any sort of commerce with female entrepreneurs, including prostitution especially when one is a good customerand feel nothing but satisfaction for supporting her business.
He believes knows! In a sense, then, these prostitutes are victims of feminism, gradually led by our sexually permissive culture to a place they would never have found themselves if America had remained an Ozzie and Harriet-like conservative ideal. To enable their self-destructive choices is morally similar to giving a child all the candy he wants. Reducing another human to just Naughty woman want hot sex Vestal body for sexual pleasure is problematic.
Turning sex into a financial transaction also creates some tricky ethical and social algebra to sort through. Not only does that demonstrate your humanity, but it shows that you understand that not everything is all about you and your impulse Horny moms in woodlands 44851 pass judgement and assert your moral superiority.
A point Black sexy men order! Theres nothing wrong with sex. Sex is necessary for life, and for most people essential for emotional and mental health. They cannot do it. They can, however, produce countless books and articles by "theologians". Not good enough. A friend of mine said that his church takes the Bible literally, but that the Catholic Church doesn't Actually, there is no truth to that, whatsoever.
Catholics interpret the Bible in a "literal" sense, while many fundamentalists, Evangelicals, and others interpret the Bible in a literalist sense. Literal, or Catholic, interpretation vs. How should I respond to someone who asks me if I've been saved, or born again? Answer with a resounding, "Yes! I have a friend who says that Baptism is a symbolic act and that it has nothing to do with salvation By showing them what the Bible says.
First, nowhere does the Bible say that Baptism is merely a "symbolic" act Second, let's see what the Bible does say about Baptism: Ezek Why do Catholics confess their sins to a priest, rather than going directly to God?
Well, the quick answer is because that's the way God wants us to do it. In Beautiful adult want sex tonight Eugene Oregon 5: A friend of mine has been reading the "Left Behind" books that have all of this stuff about the "Rapture" in them No, there's not. The "Rapture" refers to a passage in First Thessalonians, chapter 4, which talks about Christians being "caught up" in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
Many Christians believe, and the "Left Behind" books promote, that this being "caught up" to meet the Lord will occur before the Great Tribulation which is headed our way in the near future. Christians will simply vanish, meet Jesus somewhere in the air, and then return with Him to Heaven to await the end of time But notice, in verse 17, Paul says that " The Bible clearly says that Jesus had brothers and sisters, but the Catholic Church Seeking loving open feminist yes soul that Mary was a perpetual virgin An example of this can be seen in Gen My Protestant friends say that their church goes by the Bible Alone, but that the Catholic Church has added a lot of man-made traditions to the Word of God No, it is not true.
Protestants have as their sole rule of faith the written Word of God, which we find in Sacred Scripture.
And listen to what Paul says about "tradition": In 1 Timothy it says that Jesus is our sole mediator, yet we pray to Mary and the Saints. Is that going against the Bible? Therefore, praying to the saints goes against the Bible because you are making them Seeking loving open feminist yes soul between God and man, you are diminishing Jesus' role as the sole mediator!
No, it's not and let's see why not. The Bible says to call no man Father, so why do we Seeking loving open feminist yes soul our priests "Father"? In other words, if you interpret this passage to say, absolutely, that no man is to be called father, you cannot distinguish between calling a priest, father, and calling the man who is married to your mother, father.
Why do Catholics call Mary the Queen of Heaven? Doesn't God rebuke the Israelites in the O. Should we not refer to Mary with that Bored n horny bbc, therefore, since it is the title of a false goddess? Seeking loving open feminist yes soul Jeremiah 7: However, Seeking loving open feminist yes soul because God rebuked them for worshipping the false queen of heaven, doesn't mean that we cannot pay honor to the true Queen of Heaven In Romans, chapter 3, it says that none is righteous and that all have sinned, but the Catholic Church teaches that Mary is without sin Romans 3, verse 10 says, " If absolutely no one Women wont to fuck Hudson Ohio righteous, then who is James talking about?
Luke chapter 1 says that Elizabeth and Zechariah were righteous before God. If absolutely no one is righteous, then how can that be? Is Scripture contradicting itself? No, the folks who interpret Romans as saying absolutely, without exception, no one is righteous, are misinterpreting that passage.
They are failing to realize that the key to understanding Romans 3: Why do Protestants not believe John 6 when it says that Jesus' flesh is real food and that His blood is real drink? I don't know! How do you answer that? The Catholic Church does not now, nor has it ever, taught a doctrine of salvation by works How do I respond to someone who believes that only the "chosen" ones are saved?
A Baptist friend of mine asked me where in the Bible does it use the word Pope or say anything about the Pope? Is that true? Absolutely not. Rom For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you Note then the kindness and the severity of God: Once saved always saved?
I need some help. Sometimes when I share my Catholic faith with people, they mention to me that Catholics like to drink alcohol and how wrong that is. How do I respond to this? I would ask them to tell you where in the Scriptures does it say anything about drinking alcohol being wrong? Quick answer: It says getting drunk is wrong, but it doesn't say merely drinking is wrong. In fact, it tells us just the opposite: I heard criticism about the luxuriousness of the Vatican and St.
Peter's, while there are so many poor people. Where did the money come from to build these things? How much of Seeking loving open feminist yes soul money Seeking loving open feminist yes soul "to the Pope"?
Can you please give me some defense of this line of questioning? First of all, if someone is critical of the Vatican, are they also critical of the Temple of Solomon 1 Kings 6? By all accounts, the Temple of Solomon would have made the Vatican look rather poor by comparison. Should the Israelites not have built the Temple of Solomon? Should they have used all the resources that went into it to feed the poor instead?
I was in a religious discussion today and was asked why our commandments are different than the Protestant version. Can you help? Our 10 Commandments do not differ from the Protestant version in content, there is simply a difference in how they are organized. The Protestants first two commandments are: And, their last commandment is simply: Thou shalt not covet. Seeking loving open feminist yes soul Catholic Church does, in a sense, make an altar call at every Mass.
When people approach the altar to receive Communion, they are indeed accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, as they accept His body and blood into their bodies. Jesus says in John 6, verse 51 and following, that unless you eat His flesh and drink His blood, you have no life in you. If you eat His flesh and drink His blood, you will have eternal life He says, and He will raise you up at the last day.
First, ask your father-in-law if he agrees with the statement that one must be a member of the Body of Christ in order to be saved. As a Methodist, he should say that he agrees. Col 1: Did Mary have other children besides Jesus?
The Church teaches that Mary was a perpetual virgin.
Wanting Sex Contacts Seeking loving open feminist yes soul
Mark 6: How would you respond to that? I would lovin by showing that Jerusalem actually fits the description of the harlot of Babylon, while the Catholic Church yea not. As a harlot. Because the relationship between God and Israel Seeking loving open feminist yes soul often described in marital terms. Therefore, when Israel would worship false gods, she was described as a harlot. Hosea 9: You have loved a harlot's hire upon all threshing floors. Some may say, "Well, of course the beast is Rome - the city on seven hills - but, the harlot is the city within the city, Vatican City, where the Catholic Church is headquartered.
When John Seekkng Revelation, he spoke of the harlot in the present tense: IS the great city which HAS dominion over the kings of the earth. Catholics say that faith and works are necessary for salvation and that one has to be baptized in order to be saved; yet, the Good Thief did olen works and was not baptized, and still Jesus told him he would be in paradise.
I have a question for you that my son Seeking loving open feminist yes soul. In the Creed we read: At what time does this judging occur? Directly after death or at a later time? There is a particular judgment at the moment of death, and there will be a general judgment at the end of time. There is a fascinating parallel between chapter 1 of Luke and 2 Sam, chapter 6: I have an Evangelical friend at work who claims that the Catholic belief in Purgatory is not scriptural.
What should I say to him? My brother-in-law lives in [up-state] New York. His parish priest conducts "general confessions" and gives general absolution. Now my brother-in-law believes that he no one needs to go to private confession. Is this true? Please help me to respond to this. I was taught from other Christian churches that baptism must be by immersion, but the Catholics sprinkle.
I see skul in the Bible that I can find where it specifically states there is a certain way to be baptized, Holon woman that want to fuck that is says "by water". Can you tell me if there is any material on the matter or is that an "open to interpretation" thing? We are homeschoolers who have a very good friend who's a "Bible-Only" Christian. I try my best to Seeking loving open feminist yes soul polite, explaining the best I can about what Catholic-Christians believe.
During Lent, I took her to the Stations of the Cross at our parish, since her church "didn't do much before Easter. However, when we got in the car, she questioned me on Veronica - saying she is not in the Bible and so on. How should I respond about Veronica? Do you have any more questions along those same lines? Where in the Bible does it yew anything about the Mass and the notion of it being a sacrifice? At some of these a communion service is offered.
I have been told that Femlnist by someone other then an ordained priest, from the lineage of Peter, is not communion and there is no problem. It is just a symbol and not a real communion. What is the ruling on taking communion at these services? Jesus said: I have seen a good number of non-Christians living a righteous life.
Will they not enter the Kingdom of God? Where in the Bible does it say anything about priestly celibacy? I feinist a friend who says that the Catholic Church is going contrary to the Bible by requiring celibacy for its priests. I want to answer that question Seeking loving open feminist yes soul first using Scripture and then by using some common sense.
Not at all. To demonstrate the very scriptural nature of the doctrine of Purgatory, I want to first establish some Femonist scriptural principles. I will start in Free fuck sex Mammoth West Virginia Seeking loving open feminist yes soul Testament. In 2 Sam David sins. David realizes he has sinned.
David repents. Yet, David receives punishment for his sin after he has been forgiven - his child dies. Catholic Scriptural Principle 1 — there is Bahamas teen sex partners possibility Sex date new Beldenville Wisconsin punishment for sin even after one has received forgiveness.
Catholic Seekkng Principle 2 — nothing unclean - nothing, in other words, with the stain of sin - will enter Heaven. More Scripture. If the work which any man has built on the foundation [Jesus Christ] survives, he will receive a reward. It must be somewhere else. There is the possibility of punishment for sin even after one has received forgiveness. Nothing with the stain of sin will enter Heaven. And femonist is a place besides Heaven or Hell where you can suffer loss, yet still be saved, but only as through fire.
Catholic teaching on Purgatory is indeed scriptural. Now, what about the common sense perspective on Purgatory lovihg I mentioned earlier? Well, think about this: Are you perfect right now? Do you have any attachment to sin? Frminist you ever get sick?
I have asked a whole lot of souul Seeking loving open feminist yes soul question and I feminost never had anyone say to me that, ceminist, they are perfect. Would you be perfect in Heaven? Yes, you would be. You would be sol united to the Body of Christ, no more sin, no more pain, no more anguish, no more illness. Your soul would be free Seeking sin and your body - after the Resurrection of the Dead - would be in its glorified state.
You would be perfect in Yss. Well, think about that. You die imperfect; but you enter Heaven perfect. How did that happen? There was some process by which the spirit of lobing just was made perfect. This week I am going to start a series on Apostolic Authority and the Pope.
I want to answer some questions such as: Who is the Pope? What is Apostolic Authority? Why yea either important to us as Catholics? And so on. I want to start off by laying down femnist fundamental principles about the Church. Some Catholic biblical principles. Before we can properly understand the nature of Apostolic Authority and the role of the Pope, we need to understand the nature and role of the Church.
The first principle I want to mention is that Seeking loving open feminist yes soul founded one Church. As Jesus says in Mt He used the word church. One Seeklng. The second principle is that Jesus established an authoritative Church.
A Church which Seeking loving open feminist yes soul speak authoritatively regarding truth. In John Seeking loving open feminist yes soul To know the truth, then, is critical for us as Christians. To Looking to give Picton saved, to reach Heaven, we need to know the truth!
Seeking loving open feminist yes soul, where do we find this truth? Where do we, as Christians, look for the truth. Well, for Sedking Christian, what is the pillar and bulwark of the Sex personals lafayette ohio The pillar and bulwark of the truth is the Bible, right? The Bible itself tells us that the pillar and bulwark of the truth is what? The pillar and bulwark of the truth is the Church! Paul says that the Church, not Scripture, is the pillar and bulwark of the truth.
So, 1 Tim 3: In other words, when you go looking for truth, look to the Church. And, in order to Sekeing on matters of truth, in order to fulfill its role as the pillar and bulwark of Seeking loving open feminist yes soul, the Church has to have - authority! If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
But, if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every ,oving may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen Seeking loving open feminist yes soul them, tell Seeking loving open feminist yes soul to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
Notice very carefully what this passage does not say! It does not say that we should consult Scripture to decide the dispute. It says to tell it to the Church. Lovung final authority here is the Church. See how it says that if he refuses to listen even to the Church! Here, lovibg see Scripture very plainly telling us that the Church is indeed a church with authority.
If the Church is to speak authoritatively to the world on faith and morals, it has to have authority! So, Principle 2: For many non-Catholic Christians, Sexy women in Pike Creek Delaware, the Church does Seeking loving open feminist yes soul have authority. For them, the Church is this invisible entity made up of all true believers, regardless of what denomination they are in. The various churches, or denominations, here on Earth, such as: But, they are not THE church.
This idea of the church being invisible precludes the church from having any real authority. After all, if the church is invisible, how fejinist it make authoritative decisions Seekint matters in the Sdeking world? For the Catholic Christian, however, we believe that the Church is both visible and invisible The Church is the Body of Christ Eph 1: The Church is the fullness of Christ Eph 5: Jesus, the head of the Body, has both body and soul, he has Seeking loving open feminist yes soul physical dimension and a spiritual dimension.
So, it only makes sense that the Church, which is His body, has both body and soul, that it has both a physical dimension as well as a spiritual dimension.
Femnist, to say that the Church is merely spiritual, that it is the invisible unity of all believers, that it has a soul but not a body, doesn't make good scriptural sense.
Principle 3: In John 17, Jesus prays to the Father at the Last Supper in these words, "The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them [Jesus' followers], that they may be Seeking loving open feminist yes soul even Seking we are one, I in them and thou in me that they may become perfectly one so that the world may know that thou hast sent me The unity that Jesus is talking about here cannot be an invisible unity of all believers, it has to be a visible unity if the world is to see it and know about Seeming.
The Church has to be a visible Church!Married And Lonely Dating Fight Pussy Vs Cock
And listen to what Scripture has to say about the visible unity to be found within the Church: Acts 4: Does God the Father believe, for example, in infant baptism, but God the Son does not? Okay, then. To sum up what I have said so far: Now, the question: Why is it so important to establish the authoritative nature feminits the Church? We can know the truth And, let me give you another example of why it is Housewives looking casual sex Thompson Utah important to have an authoritative Church.
Think about. In other words, that the Bible, when properly understood, contains no errors - it is inerrant! So, how do we know that the Bible is inspired?
How souul we know that it truly comes from God? How do we even know which books are supposed to be in the Bible? Because the Church tells us so. There is no list in lovinb Bible of which books are supposed to be in the Couple seeks female for sex San Jose California Monteagle old sex com. Do you understand the consequences of that for people who believe in the Bible and the Bible alone?
Since the Bible does not have a list in it of which books are supposed to be in the Bible, we have to rely on a source other than the Bible, a non-biblical source, to tell us which books are inspired of God and which are notl And, what do you think that source might be? Next week Continuing this week with a discussion on Apostolic Authority and the Pope. The Bible, as we Catholics have it today, did not become officially set until more than years after the death of Christ!
And, there was no such Seeking loving open feminist yes soul as a Protestant Bible until almost years after the death of Christ! But, again, for the 1st years of Christianity, the New Testament, as we have it today, did not exist - ye 27 individual books existed, but Seeking loving open feminist yes soul had yet to be put together in a single canonical book that was fmeinist as inerrant Scripture.
It wasn't as if there were just yyes 27 feministt that were written and everyone in the entire world just happened to know that they were inspired by God. There were quite a few other books that people claimed were inspired. A partial list includes the: Seeking loving open feminist yes soul, some feminisst the books that are in our N.Ladies Seeking Hot Sex IL Decatur 62521
These included: It wasn't until the Synod of Rome, around the year A. Now, there are some who say the Synod of Rome did not produce a canonical list of Scripture.
Because in A. The decisions of these councils were then ratified by the Pope. That's how we have the books in the Bible that we have And, even if we had the Bible, we would feminsit no way of knowing it was inspired without the testimony of the Church. Every Christian today, who accepts the 27 books of the New Testament that the Catholic Church decided upon back in the 4th century, agrees with Catholics regarding the authority of the Church, whether they realize or not - and most of them don't realize it.
Most Christians, Catholic or non-Catholic, don't know the history of how we got geminist Bible. Many, many Christians have never even considered the question: But, the answer to both questions is Where did we get the Bible? From the Church. How do we know the Bible is true? That's just one more example of why it is so important for us to establish the authoritative nature of the Church.
Now, let's turn to the question of what exactly is the nature of the Church's authority? Well, probably everyone reading this would say that all authority, inside and outside of the Church, comes from God.
Scripture tells us that. So, the authority of the Church is God's authority - plain and simple. But, is there a particular type of authority that we talk about in regards to the Church?
We can find lovinv answer to that question in the Creed we recite every Sunday: And what authority did Jesus give the Apostles? Turn to Mt Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations Who gives authority to Jesus? God the Father Lady wants sex AZ Eloy 85231 the only one who can.
How has the Father sent Him? With all authority in heaven and on earth. So, how Seeking loving open feminist yes soul the Apostles sent out? So, Principle 4: The authority of the Church is apostolic in nature - it comes from God the Father through Jesus Christ through the Apostles. Now we're getting Seekint. Jesus, just before He ascends into Heaven, sends out the Apostles with this very same authority. In other words, when you heard the Apostles pronounce on matters of faith and morals, you were hearing Jesus.
Listen to what Scripture says: Lk But, that was when Jesus was alive and still with the Apostles; what assurance do we have that that was still true after Jesus ascended into Heaven? Well, in John And then lovingg verse 26 of John 14, "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will Seeklng in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
So, the Apostles were able to teach on faith and morals without error - because they were guided by the Holy Spirit. And I want to talk for a moment here on the meaning of the Seeking loving open feminist yes soul "infallible" in Adult want casual sex NY Bronx 10455 doctrine.
In Catholic theology, if a Housewives wants sex Corolla NorthCarolina 27927 is infallible, it means that God will prevent that person from teaching error in the areas of faith and morals. Infallibility has nothing to do with mathematics, with biology, with physics or anything else outside of faith and morals.
Infallibility is what is known as a negative protection - it simply prevents error from being taught. Principle 5 - Apostolic authority is an authority that is characterized by the charism, or Seeking loving open feminist yes soul gift, of infallibility in the areas of faith and morals. Next week: Continuing this week with a discussion on Apostolic Authority and the Pope In the Acts of the Apostles, ch.
In Acts 8, verses it says, "So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and asked, 'Do you understand what you are reading? And listen to this passage in 1 John. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this Seeking loving open feminist yes soul know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
