Christianity and Standards

One of the most underrated effects of societal double-standards is how it ends up undermining moral standards and paves the way for a hedonistic “you do you” mentality in our culture.

We’ve gone from weaponizing the drug war as a tool of racial suppression to spreading the myth that various recreational substances are entirely harmless (and in some ways fashionable).

We’ve gone from placing the entire burden of marital commitment onto women towards a hypersexual society driven by the (often exploitative) pornography industry.

Christian morality has been (mis)used for centuries as a tool of domination, but we must counter this by raising our standards, not lowering them. Tolerance leaves a man to rot as long as he sins within his bounds; understanding shines a light on the path to overcome his demons.
