Christian Man Triggered Because Bodies Are Cool

Christian Influencer, Paul Olliges of the Morgan and Paul Show, is upset bodies are cool, which I guess is better than being jealous over your unborn child? Peak Biblical masculinity right there, folks.

Embarrassingly, I’ve been too preoccupied with video games, which obviously left me no time to blog. I was playing Sekiro but after dying literally one billion times I rage quit and then alas! Forbidden West came out so that was the end of me pretending I was going to do anything productive for the next few months. Fortunately, the weather is warming which means I’ll be hitting the trail more regularly and not sitting in front of a screen. What I’m really saying is – this annoyed me enough to rouse me from my gaming hermitage.

Interestingly, Paul’s reasoning for warning his followers against reading Bodies Are Cool to their kids is because it’s “aggressively” LGBT+whatever and non-binary, or something. Given this mere children’s book triggered him enough to post about it online, naturally I was curious to see what the book was about. Also, like honestly if he didn’t want people reading this he should’ve like… not posted about it? Truly, of all the problems in the world, is that really the worst thing your child could be learning about?

It took me 5 seconds to find this book online, which is about how long it would’ve taken him to actually read it.

Other than the person wearing a rainbow shirt at the end (which to preschool aged children and generally anyone who likes color literally means nothing) the book mentions nada about being gay or non-binary, or whatever, so… I’m confused at his claim the books is aggressively pro-lgbtq+ as that either indicates he didn’t actually read the book, or he’s lying (a sin) because he was getting too much smoke about it from his followers given the book is generally just about how different types of bodies with different hair types, skin colors and textures, disabilities, etc. are cool which is a pretty harmless message for kids.

Having seen the book’s contents, it’s obvious Paul construes the acknowledgement of women having body hair, which is pretty prominently displayed throughout the book, as some liberal ideology, which no. That’s not some non-binary agenda, that is literally how God made women… with hair on their legs, underarms, and sometimes faces. Society has convinced women these things are somehow wrong when God Almighty Himself put them there. So even though I wear make-up and shave lol, if we’re gonna be literal here, from a Biblical perspective, it makes the most sense for women to not wear make-up, nor shave because that is our natural state and how God made us. For a dude always going on and on about how not giving birth to children is unnatural and gonna end humanity and husbands taking their wives last name is wrong (which there is literally no Biblical basis for a wife to take a husband’s last name) he seems awfully cherry-pick-ish about which things he claims are natural and right.

The Bible says, “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal,” the latter of which describes Paul Olliges. Almost everything he says wreaks of moral superiority and smugness, rather than humility and love. Humility is recognizing all of us fall short of the glory of God and need redemption as Romans 3:23 states, and that Paul is no holier than any unbeliever because of his actions, rather it is through Christ alone that he and all Christians are sanctified.

Unfortunately, modern Christians have chosen to roll around the mud with conservatives and sling dirt at liberals online for attention, therefore Paul will likely continue posting stuff like this in an attempt to be “anti-woke” instead of like Christ.

Paul Olliges Is Upset Twitter is Pro-Life

Paul Olliges, of the Morgan and Paul show, is half of the Christian couple duo who post hot takes on YouTube from a “Christian” perspective. And by “hot” they parrot already widely popular conservative views on social and cultural issues that 100% of conservatives already agree with.

Generally, Morgan and Paul don’t have anything thought-provoking, nor Scriptural, to add to whatever they’re talking about. But Morgan has a very pretty voice, great fashion style, and some super cool tattoos so they present as more normal compared to the likes of Girl Defined and they also aren’t scamming people out of money like Brittany Dawn so… it’s something.

Morgan has been very publicly struggling with infertility for the past several years, something Paul (her husband) has neither spoken about, nor publicly supported her in, which I find incredibly odd given Paul is always talking about how people not having kids are the reason the world is ending or something (which it’s shady posting this sort of stuff when you know your wife desperately wants kids…).

Anyway, Paul is upset his random Bible verse he probably pilfered from the Bible app’s verse of the day didn’t get as many retweets as his wife, Morgan, getting pregnant after five years of struggling with infertility.

Ladies, marry a man who gets upset at your unborn child #dontsettle #kingdommarriage

Granted, critical thinking is often not many a Christians strong point and it seems Paul Olliges is no exception. But it doesn’t take a genius to recognize most people, Christian and non-Christian alike, are excited when new life is brought into the world. Naturally, Morgan’s pregnancy post is going to get a lot of attention, especially considering she’s a public figure. Also, I can legit read the Bible myself – why am I gonna like some rando’s Bible verse on Twitter?

The post reeks of jealously, which envy is one of the 7 deadly sins. However, it also highlights a larger issue I have with the majority of Christian, male influencers, which is that they aren’t at all like Christ, nor do they exemplify Biblical masculinity in the way they should. Yet their wives often uphold them as the pinnacle of masculinity with traits other men should emulate. Much discourse among these “traditional” circles is spent waxing poetic about how women should smile, cook, have sex no matter what, stay home, etc. as if these things are peak femininity when none of this stuff is mentioned in the Bible as things women have to do. Yet, very few of these circles also hold men to high Biblical expectations as it pertains to masculinity, namely God’s command that a leader is one who serves, and that husbands should lay aside their desires and lives for their wives. Paul Olliges doesn’t even have a job and his poor wife was living in a friends basement until recently. Ironically, working is actually something the Bible does command husbands do, even saying, “[b]ut if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

Paul hasn’t even bothered posting about his soon-to-be-child either, which as someone who’s repeatedly shamed others for not having more children, you would think his own child would be worth celebrating.

My bro in Christ seems to be like many popular “Christian” social influencers – a conservative cosplaying as a Christian in order to live a certain lifestyle, rather than a genuine Christian interested in becoming more like Jesus and bringing others to Christ. Of course, God only knows Paul’s heart, but from celebrating arsons burning buildings, to whining about vaccines and masks, shaming others for not having more children when he has 0, and whining about having to pay $10 to buy his wife a pizza (like seriously, it’s $10.), he certainly doesn’t exemplify many of the fruits of the spirit publicly. And people usually put on their best face for social media.

Jesus says they will know us by our fruits. Kindness, gentleness, self-control, patience, humility – these traits are evidence of a walk with God. We should expect to see these things in other Christians, particularly from husbands whom are tasked with spiritually leading families. In the absence of good fruit, we should question whether or not someone is really a Christian, or just pretending to be. Jesus instructs us to cut down every tree that doesn’t bear good fruit and to straight up avoid false prophets. As Christians, we should be careful not to support those whom consistently and publicly display behavior opposite of what Christ teaches, especially men whom should lead in displaying Biblical fruit.

No one is perfect and God doesn’t expect us to be. However, scripture also tells us that, “not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” Those who position themselves as bearers of Biblical truth online should expect to be held to high standards.

It’s important to be sober-minded and alert, and above all, knowledgeable of what the Bible actually says and expects of believers. When we know scripture, we’ll easily be able to pick out those whom are simply using Christianity for their own benefit. Paul Olliges really ought to spend less time trying to own the libs and more time trying to bring them to Christ as Jesus did.

That is, after all, what a true Christian would do.
