"Just Saying" Chivalry Isn't Dead


"Chivalry is dead." John Picciuto

Chivalry isn't dead.

For the sake of manhood, can we men stop looking like winy girlfriendless sex depraved babies? Man up. The woman that God's designed for you will make herself known. Man up and find her. Man up and give her a reason to appear. Man up and pray for her. Stop blaming women for your own issues. "The real problem here is that women" .... is nonsense. A man wrote this article. He needs to own his own weight. Women can write this. Men need to write "The real problem here is that men" ....

"Where did we lose the chivalrous touch? When did it become acceptable to just text a girl, inviting her to come bang? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining about those instances, I’m just saying," .... He's just saying? He's just saying what? He's just saying he's jealous. He's not getting these texts? "Where did we lose the chivalrous touch?" Where did this guy lose his? "I'm not complaining about those instances." Where's the "chivalrous touch" in that? He's not complaining? Sure he is. "Where did we lose the chivalrous touch?" He answered his own question. He's just not man enough to look inward for the answer. He would be better off looking inward and addressing his own need for chivalry.

I know chivalry is damaged. It's not dead, but it's damaged. It's damaged in most men. It's damaged in me, seriously damaged, damaged to the point of near wreckage at times, but ... I'd rather look inward and in Christ for answers and restoration rather than ... rather than entertain the idea that it's just dead and it's the responsibility of women to resurrect it.

Jesus Christ is Lord and when He walked amongst us, He was a Man amongst men, the Manliest of men, the most chivalrous of us all. He conquered death for us. 2nd Corinthians 5:21. The least we men could do is honor His conquering by conquering ourselves, Galatians 2:20, and taking responsibility for our own mess. Amen? I'll say it. Amen.

"Just saying."
