Remember Roy Atwood

Where’s Roy

He disappeared in the middle of the school year, in the middle of a semester, in the middle of a Monday morning, three weeks before Christmas, without any job prospects — he was gone. After 20+ years of Kool-Aid-drinking loyalty to all things Douglas Wilson, he had to start anew. In his 60s. And no recommendation from New Saint Andrews on his résumé. Continue reading

“A lock that opens to a hundred keys can only claim to be pretty much worthless”

But here are some different examples. This one is taken from the world, not from Scripture, but we can learn something about the world from it. Why, if a woman sleeps with a hundred men, is she slut-shamed, but if a man sleeps with a hundred women, he can get away with bragging about his “conquests”? Well, consider this factor. A key that opens a hundred locks can claim to be a master key. A lock that opens to a hundred keys can only claim to be pretty much worthless. And lest you think that I am somehow “approving” of the man in this instance, I actually include him among the fornicators who will not inherit the kingdom of heaven (1 Cor. 6:9). The point is not that his sin is praiseworthy and the immoral woman’s is not, but rather that their sins are radically different because they are radically different. But to say they are radically different is not to say one is blameworthy and the other not. He is a scoundrel, and she is a tramp — let us not praise either one, but let us not confuse them either.

“These men know (and can prove) that Mr. Jones, from his place of work, accessed a website”

These men know (and can prove) that Mr. Jones, from his place of work, accessed a website (let us call it Bikini Bimbos.com), and was on that web site for 45 seconds. And so the data wonk says, “J’accuse.” Left out is the fact that he did so because Mrs. Jones, having just caught their Billy on the same site at their home computer, called her husband, and asked him to see how bad it was. Or contrariwise, remembering the condition our world is in, Mr. Jones might have just been sinning.
