The red pill can be bitter going down. We regularly have to deal with angry, acerbic men. Often it’s Christians who suffer the most; they feel betrayed by the church, the very institution supposed to stand up for father-rule.
If you are a Christian fighting feminism, fighting for patriarchy, we want to be allies to you. We want to build you up, and we want to be built up in turn. We do not want to turn you away, nor treat you as troublemakers or enemies. That is why we have a hard word for you:
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil… Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:26–32
We are not interested in bitching, raging, or defeatist moping. Patriarchs do not wallow in whatever red pill boilerplate they picked up from Dalrock or Rollo or their clones. They do not, in all frankness, act like Jesus is not reigning, not exercising dominion, not progressively ordering the world to make his enemies his footstool.
Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled. Hebrews 12:12–15
We know that cynicism and bitterness are born of disappointment and mistreatment. And it’s not a sin to feel upset with how Jesus is ordering the world—and your life. But Galatians 5 is clear that the Christian life is characterized by joy, hope, contentment, faithfulness, peace, and other spiritual fruits. Conversely, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, and dissensions are works of the flesh, and those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Our mission is to call Christians back to father-rule. That starts by submitting ourselves to the rule of our Father—not chafing against it. Our particular mission is subordinated to God’s greater mission of calling all people to live the Christian life. In our case, that includes warning against being turned aside to the worldly responses of the red pill “community.”
