Maybe logic can be of good use again.
1. By not getting married and not having kids, I will be doing my part to prevent a woman from having to endure the horrible, horrible pains of child birth. I’d never want pain like that, why should I put someone else through it?
2. By not getting married and not having kids, I am not bringing more people on to the Earth that will consume more resources. Less people means less use of Earth’s natural resources, and the best way to solve unemployment is to have less people; so I’m making life better for everyone else. My wife would need to be quite intelligent to produce a child with enough brains to make something useful of themselves. If my wife has as much intelligence as I do, it’d just end up another one of me, and that is definitely not what this world needs.
3. Who am I to think I could be the best thing for any girl? I’m infact quite sure that I’m not, and every female should be aware of that now, if they aren’t already, before they start thinking otherwise. Whether intentionally or not, I’ll be sure to prove myself right on this again and again, so it’s best if you stay away from me and I stay away from you; it’s for everyones protection. Perhaps you can prove me wrong on this, if you are just looking for a good challenge this might be a tough one, and I’d definitely like to be be wrong, but let’s be honest, look at what else this world has to offer. I don’t want to be selfish. Why should I get in the way of other guys who can actually love a girl like she should be?
4. 1 Corinthians 7:32-34 “But I want Sean to be free from concern. Sean who is unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how Sean my please the Lord. But Sean who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how Sean may please his wife, and his interests are divided…”
(Sean Application Bible)
5.’On the Sacrament of Matrimony’ Canon X – The Council of Trent
“If anyone saith that marriage state is to be placed above the state of virginity, or celibacy, and that it is not better and more blessed to be in virginity, or in celibacy, than to be united in matrimony; let him be anathema.”
I have three strong arguements for A so far, and no counter-arguements for B. I expect list A to get longer and B to get shorter.
So Lauren and I went to coffee last night, completely spontainiously, and we were talking about topics related to these arguements, and she made a point I hadn’t heard before, but I think is quite wise. Up until now I had only viewed this as God messing up my plans, but it was very likely more than that, she said He was probably also preventing me from messing up His plans.
Yesterday was quite a full day. Chapel was interesting and entertaining. Lunch was entertaining. Class was good, I think I stayed awake the whole time. Nikki Rizzo and I threw snowballs at eachother from Lindner to the commons. Work took a while because I had to transcribe 4 pages about the lady that has her art in the gallery. Then I went to the room and attempted homework, but that didn’t happen. Then I went to dinner and then back to attempt more homework. And then Lauren called me and we went to Beans and Books and Meijer. We spent at least as much time driving as being indoors. Then I came back and ran to Taco Bell for some people because I wanted to drive in the snow. Then we came back and drove like morons in the snow. I blew a shock. Josh got stuck. Mike got stuck. Phil almost over-heated. Then Brandon, Mike and I went sledding around campus. So I was going from 8:45 a.m. until almost 3:30 a.m. Now I’m tired, but it was worth it.
If I had to sacrifice an animal like it explains to do in Leviticus, I’d be sinning a lot less. I need to know figure out how get Jesus'(s? How is that spelled?) sacrifice to be so real. That’s worse than an animal.
If one mispells church as chruch, it is pronounced similar to crutch.
Hopefully I’ll start returning e-mails soon.
Saturday night was a good one. I accomplished some homework and headed over to Brandon’s room where a fort of monstorous size had begun construction. It was pretty much finished by the time I got there. Then we shot Nerf darts at eachother with Brandon’s new blow guns and I wrestled Kevin. It should be obvious I got beat, if it isn’t. I wasn’t there for long and then we wen’t to Natalie’s room, stopping in Amy and Lauren’s on the way. Natalie’s room was having a party because they re-arranged their furniture. It was the closest to a TV college party I’ve been to. We had great food, and great fun playing Catch Phrase, and great company. There were a lot of fun people there. I hope they re-arrange their room again soon. When we were forced to leave by the hour of midnight, we walked back to Lindner, leaving Brandon at Wilson and Jess at Ohio. Before we got to Lindner we burried Jess’s car with snow. It was completely Kevin’s idea and he forced Nathan and I to do it against our will. We tried to say no, but having already been beat up by Kevin once in the night, I wasn’t going to risk it again. So we obliged. It was fun, and her response was worth it. As was finding out that Jess stole Kevin’s keys when he went to put the shovel back. It was a night full of the good clean fun I live for and love the most.
