I started with the eighteenth. And found a familiar theme with Elder Paisios (sp?) referencing letting thoughts land.

On the way home today I listened to Dave Ramsey, and they were talking about the theme of charitable giving, and the Might of the Widow? I'd never heard of that parable before, and now I'm curious.

I guess, how do you really know when to let a thought land? Or do you decide to never address it yourself, and take everything to God first?

The harshly appropriate label, given to sexually promiscuous women, “reformed sluts (single secular women in their twenties) was mentioned on this forum. It was in the frame of reference to comparing heterosexual promiscuity between secular single men and single women.

@kurtybro: “How is this different from the oft criticized "reformed sluts who find god after turning 30"? These are genuine questions.”

Is it of the opinion secular single women are to be held at the same standards of secular single men in regard to sexual morals / promiscuous behaviour? This sounds like a feminist attempt to claim men and women are created equal; and the women who are emulating this masculine behaviour are sexual empowered.

If telegony is accurate than sexual promiscuity can be of greater damage when performed by single secular women in their twenties.

If telegony can be proven would there not be a strong argument for why men and women are not created equal; and a man will have to accept a woman’s sexual history potentially altering his offspring’s DNA when copulating with her for the purpose of producing an offspring together?

I know the "psychic connection" I share with the father of my children is as strong as the one I share with my children and parents. But I think that's a WASP thing? I think perhaps this is an epigenetic expression inherent to culture that's manifested through usage, or deteriorates through lack of usage. And lol some cultural embodiments of masculinity or femininity have a stronger expression on our genes.

I am very well educated and knowledgeable (4 college degrees), yet never heard of telegony until a week ago when I read the article. In my half century on the planet I've never before heard anyone, anywhere, explain or even mention telegony.

The fact that the concept of telegony is suppressed is strong evidence that it is provable/true.

Telegony... how funny! I grew up on being taught Lamarck was true, which then got 'disproved' and apparently our 'fact check' sites all say its still discredited (Wikipedia, Brittanica).

Meanwhile:
2014:

Our results show that it is possible for a male to transmit features of his phenotype via non-genetic semen-borne factors to his mate's subsequent offspring sired by another male.

Even Time, from 2014:

Lets not start blaming the women for becoming permiscuous when men allowed them to do so in the first place, and still continues to promote promiscuity by not smashing down with violence the urges for pornography and Tinder and 'I just want a girlfriend.' Look at ourselves first - as St Paisios says, we straighten ourselves out, its a molecule in the (One, and Only) Body of Christ - the Orthodox Church, of whom is the salt of the earth, to prevent the entire 'body' of the world 'going off.' These discussions always turn into blaming women for woes, when they are even more victims of propoganda - they were targeted, and men LET them, and now we are in a circle of death where MEN have to first stop lusting and hating their sisters of Adam.

Adults are accountable for personal decisions and behaviours.

Perhaps, but continuing promiscuous behaviour would be an accountable behaviour of oneself.

This teaching suggests accountability starts with oneself.
We are to be accountable for our decisions and behaviour as we live in a world with good and evil.
Evil defined as manifestations of nihilism, feminism, narcissism, etc.

If we take a situation involving two individuals (female and male) how do we evaluate based off traditional / Biblical behaviour expectations?

If we are to evaluate/ analysis our modern situation involving two individuals we would use the variable, accountability; specifically the [ fact of being responsible for your decisions or actions and expected to explain them when you are asked] of oneself.

What would happen if all women in the world ceased any kind of promiscuous and immodest decisions and behaviours; to not serve as the temptation for the sin of lust?

What specific targeted propaganda are women more of a victim than men?

MEN have to first stop lusting and hating their sisters of Adam.

These men (in which you speak of here) are not Christians, but secular men correct?

The symptom of detaching responsibility from rights. For example even the draft for women is made possible by suffrage. The right to vote for Men has always been tied to compulsory military service.

If only Men are responsible. Then by implication women aren't human. Either faultless goddesses or mere cattle.
