"Christians aren't supposed to judge!"

An easy assumption to make, but it's wrong.

"Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly."
-John 7:24

Christians are supposed to judge RIGHTEOUSLY.

This is where many go wrong...
Christians are also supposed to receive the same judgement they give.

Meaning, they must hold themselves to the SAME standard that they hold others to.
Matthew 7:1-29 says...

"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you."
"Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?"
"You HYPOCRITE, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye."
This is only good reasoning and doesn't mean you should hold contempt for others.

And there will always be this inherent problem:

Even if you show compassion, not everyone is going to appreciate the standard that you hold for them or even yourself.
Still, THAT is the standard Christians are held to.

There's no denying that many fall short of it.

And if they do, it should be brought to their attention by someone who IS complying with that standard.

When you constantly complain about all of the bullshit going on in the world, you're giving the enemy EXACTLY what they want:

For you to lose focus on your life.
You want to improve the world?


Even though it seems small, it still lessens the amount of trouble in the world.
I mean, do you think you're making a positive difference by talking about it with others?

You're not.

All you're doing is wasting your precious time, focus, energy, and emotion.

I recently helped a friend out with his marriage.

Men, I can't tell you how critical it is for you to learn about masculine and feminine dynamics.

These mistakes are so common.

And most men have no idea that they're making them...
Not only will learning attraction dynamics help you to better understand your woman, it will also help you to better understand yourself.

That will improve both your relationship with yourself and with her.

It will also help you to become a better leader.
Feminine energy wants to give and receive love.

Your masculine presence and attention are sources of comfort, love, safety, and even validation.

She wants to FEEL the fullness of it when you're with her.

There are a few ways to do this...

Plenty have warned about soy and "vegetable" oils.

A little probably won't do much harm.

10 Things You Need To Do To Go From

This: To this:
1) Lift heavy

When dieting down, muscle retention is a main priority.

Your body adapts to what you do frequently.

So if you're lifting heavy, your body is going to respond by holding onto muscle, because it is needed often to lift.
2) Be in a caloric deficit

Evidence shows that calories matter.

There's no way around it.

Calories are units of energy.

You need to be using more energy than you're taking in.

Track your food and make adjustments if you aren't setting results.
