TheRedArchive needs help
With 700,000+ posts and 16,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 20-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.

Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained a lot of knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you, and I wish you all a successful 2021 and a good luck with achieving your goals and dreams!

I always believed in God and have done many things in His name. I wanted to take religion seriously a while a go, but the struggle with living in others frames took me to a different path.

Through theredpill, I saw many things in everyday life differently. Monk mode, in particular, had me own my weakest points and do my best to overcome them. Finally, the truth I embraced through redpill started to unveil the true relationship nature I have with God. I always thought I am worshiping only out of love, no strings attached. He gave me everything and this the least I can do, while persistent on my sins, to deserve the forgiveness He gave and the paradise He promised. But it's been only few weeks and I'm tested with my patience, lust and faith. I don't get myself anymore, as I see the covert contract I have with him, which says: if I pray today, I get my prayer answered according to my terms. If I do this charity, I shouldn't experience such and such calamity at work or home.. I don't know why would I lie to myself in front of God. Spiritual-level nice guy syndrome?

Having said that, even if I don't live in other's frame, I know from deep down that I want to take advantage of every opportunity I have with girls to develop experience and create memorizable past of mistakes to laugh at. I know if I want to be reborn again, I will have this FOMO competing with my sincerity towards God.

My question is, as I want to embrace the truth and act upon it. should I just stop doing these "righteous" acts whenever I see myself doing them to get something back? Should I continue my dating game, accepting myself as a sinner now, while improving myself and my frame until I feel the true need to kneel sincerely before God?

I always thought I am worshiping only out of love, no strings attached. He gave me everything and this the least I can do, while persistent on my sins

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you." (John 14:15-17)

to deserve the forgiveness He gave and the paradise He promised.

No one deserves God's forgiveness. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:8-10)

I don't get myself anymore, as I see the covert contract I have with him, which says: if I pray today, I get my prayer answered according to my terms. If I do this charity, I shouldn't experience such and such calamity at work or home.. I don't know why would I lie to myself in front of God. Spiritual-level nice guy syndrome?

Yes, this is a covert contract. 1 John 4:19 says “We love Him, because He first loved us.”

My question is, as I want to embrace the truth and act upon it. should I just stop doing these "righteous" acts whenever I see myself doing them to get something back?

You're either all in or all out. If you trust in Christ and repent of your sins, the Holy Spirit will help you get out of that mindset and help you to start obeying what is written in the Word. If you wait until you "feel the true need to kneel sincerely before God", that day may never come and you will end up in hell. Jesus said count the cost before becoming a disciple. But don't think you can just put it off forever so you can sin to your heart's content, because eventually your conscience will become seared and you won't hear the call of God anymore.

So does that mean you should start as soon as you want to follow christ and not as soon as you think you are able to follow his teachings without sinning? I personally want to follow christ, but I can't abstain from extramarital sexual contact right now and this is the thing leaving me in a state of "non-acting" everything concerned christ.

[–]rocknrollchuck4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yes, that's exactly what it means. I continued to use drugs daily for 10 years after trusting in Christ. He helped me grow in my faith and enabled me to quit. He can do the same for you. Settle the salvation issue first, and let the Holy Spirit work on your heart and lead you to do what you could never do for yourself. But at some point you will have to make a decision, make no mistake about that.

Also u/Niocs, to add to my last comment, here's 1 John 3:9-10 in the Amplified Version:

"No one who is born of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, because God’s seed [His principle of life, the essence of His righteous character] remains [permanently] in him [who is born again—who is reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose]; and he [who is born again] cannot habitually [live a life characterized by] sin, because he is born of God and longs to please Him. 10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are clearly identified: anyone who does not practice righteousness [who does not seek God’s will in thought, action, and purpose] is not of God, nor is the one who does not [unselfishly] love his [believing] brother."

God gives us time to change, but eventually we must become obedient and change.

Only God can get you to a point you can follow his teachings without sinning - and the without sinning part comes after you die.

We sin daily in thought, word, and deed. But we also die more and more to our sin every day and live more and more to Christ every day, enabled by his gift of grace alone to do this.

Flee to Christ, brother. Bend knee to Him as He gives you grace to do so.

Solving sin is a byproduct of faith in Christ, not a prerequisite to it. The whole point of the Gospel is that you don't have to worry about sin anymore because God gives you more important things to do. When you start doing them you stop caring about clinging to your sin the way you used to. Right now you're holding back because of your investment in your sin, but after Christ the luster of it all just fades and you don't really care anymore ... the same way a blue pill guy stops seeing thre luster in marriage when he discovers the red pill. The truth sets you free from all that fraudulent garbage that seemed to be a dominant, extremely powerful and controlling force over your life before.

And of course you don't want to make that change right now - because you see it as a loss of your fun without a gain or exchange. It's like a drug addict who knows his life will be so much better if he goes to AA and cleans up, but while still addicted he thinks it's all just going to be one big buzz kill for some "greater good" that they really see as mediocrity. Then after they finally do clean up for good, they look back on those days and can't figure out how they were so dumb as to think that was somehow better.

Amen! You being here and commenting these things proves that it's not too late for you.
