In another post on this blog it occurred to me what taproot the fundamentals of game grew from. That is, discontentment. Insecure, unhappy, disturbed, agitated people need someone to calm all of their tingles, to satiate their itches. To pass their fitness tests and affirm them, letting wives know that there husband is the stable rock in the midst of a storm strewn sea. That is why we see an increasing cry for men to “Man up”, provide more security at the same time their foundations are be smashed under their feet. The more those foundations are smashed the less peace everyone has the more everyone craves it. Then comes “game”; psychological trickery designed to recognize this lack of peace and to short circuit it’s response to suit the gamer, otherwise known as manipulation. When faced with an insecure wife, date, PUA prospect, the gamer sees opportunity, weakness to be exploited. He knows that if he behaves a certain way it will be perceived as strength and stability by the gamed. Trust me says the gamer, I won’t let you down…..
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:5-8
The gamer is a deceiver who offers the woman to “rest” in his masculinity, anchored in the void. The gamer says that women are weak while refusing to acknowledge their own weakness, because to acknowledge their own weakness and need to trust in God it would ruin their game.
In my argument I suggest that content women do no fitness test. They do not build instances by which they can test their husbands love and commitment to them. Why? Because their security comes from God, and that their contentment comes from their faith in Him. The drought doesn’t cause them concern, they know that they will continue to bear fruit because of Him and His goodness. Has their husband failed, is he weak, is he sick, unemployed? Sounds like a drought to me? Who is worried? The one who puts their trust in man.
Now see the connection:
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7)
By recognizing and being thankful for the provision of God we have peace. The lack of peace and Godliness in the world makes it a place open to deceit and manipulation to “work”. Game uses these very tools and this same appeal to pragmatism. Is it any wonder that the evils of feminism, preying on the sin nature of women also makes them susceptible to the predations of game? Jesus mapped the way out of this, death to the discontented self, death to the deceitful and manipulative self, and peace in Him.
