addiction men pain & suffering

Even as Followers-of-Jesus, it’s our tendency to hide and pretend that “I’m okay; you’re okay.”  It’s been true since the garden and continues to be our default setting.  Perhaps nowhere else is this tendency, of pretense, more obvious (and damaging) than our self-protective attempts to hide . . . regarding our miserable history of and current reality of our sexual temptations, struggles and failures.

Love is suffering and ultimately death for the beloved, and we all love someone or something. The object of your love will kill you. It’s true if you love scotch, religion, porn, work, family, friends or God. You’re gonna do penance. You’re gonna suffer for whatever god you choose. So choose well.

I had quite a year. I made a few resolutions at the beginning of 2009 and I’ve done well. I worked out 5-6 times a week and became a vegetarian. My resolution was to become a vegan, but cheese kept finding its way into my mouth (it snuck in on veggie pizza and goldfish crackers). I also ate an egg. Then there was the mahi-mahi my wife and I ate while celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary… and the lunch meat I tasted when making my kids lunch. (Hey, it could have gone bad. I was throwing myself in front of the salmonella bus to save the children.) But that’s not the point.
