Many people are unhappy with how their lives are going. They’re depressed, they desire more pleasure, they’re lonely, they lack purpose, and so on. While life contains many inherent hardships, most of the suffering that people experience are a direct result of a lifestyle they chose that they thought would solve their problems. Instead, it is the cause of their problems. In fact, there is no worldly lifestyle you can choose that will give you lasting contentment or satisfaction.

Lifestyles cause emotional and physical illness

The clearest example of a lifestyle that creates more problems than it solves is homosexuality. Such a lifestyle involves temporary sexual attachments, unbridled sodomy, copious drug use, extreme vanity, and a general fixation on anything bodily to feel a spike of pleasure or happiness. The costs of pursuing this lifestyle are severe: mental illness, depression, drug dependency, sex dependency, lack of life meaning, and physical diseases in the form of HIV, butt cancer, HPV, and a host of other viral and bacterial infections. To resolve these costs, the homosexual doubles down on the lifestyle, pursuing even more sodomy, even including the abuse of children, but that makes the disease even more virulent.

Lacking in awareness of how he is harming himself, the homosexual will project the misery of his lifestyle onto others, complaining that he is being oppressed for his life choices by “bigots,” “homophobes,” and “Nazis,” and that he requires more rights and benefits to fulfill even more degrading aspects of his lifestyle. His crusade is futile. Since his lifestyle is the direct cause of his disease, he will continue to spiral downwards. The guilt from his lifestyle will manifest itself mentally and emotionally, while the sexual acts he performs will manifest in physical illness.

Heterosexuals who decide on a life of casual sex (or masturbation with the aid of porn) are actually performing a “homosexual lite” lifestyle. The same behavior is present though in diminished form. The heterosexual participates in temporary sexual attachments, unbridled fornication and masturbation, elevated drug use (particular alcohol), extreme vanity to better facilitate meaningless sex acts, and a fixation on things of this world (money, travel, fame, etc.).

If you put an active homosexual in a room with an active heterosexual fornicator, you will not be able to differentiate their character, which is centered around constantly evaluating potential sexual opportunities in their environment while maintaining an overly groomed appearance. The only difference would be their mannerisms and the object of their desires. Even though a heterosexual man participates in vaginal sex with women instead of anal sex with men, he will suffer from the same disease, though less severe in intensity.

Satan will distract you with lifestyle options

Another diseased lifestyle is that of an urban Western woman. Her inverted belief of the natural order leads to a common set of behaviors: an obsession with career and money-making (mercantilism), activism for Satanic-inspired social justice causes, active denigration of her countrymen and traditions, promiscuity, self-glorification via social media and dating apps, willingness to use contraception and abortion to maintain a barren womb, hollow “spiritual” pursuits (e.g. yoga, postmodern Buddhism, New Age spirituality), and dependence on corporations for moral guidance. A woman who adopts the globohomo lifestyle will experience similar symptoms as the homosexual: mental illness, depression, drug and sex dependency, existential malaise, the inability to pair bond, and an addiction to anti-depressants.

Any lifestyle you pursue that puts your glorification, “happiness,” desires, or genitals at the center will create a similar manifestation of disease, whether you are homosexual or not. I know this because I embarked on a homosexual-lite lifestyle for nearly two decades, when I worshipped the vagina as part of a detached sex act. I uprooted myself and created a life that was centered around extracting genital pleasure, which I then linked to my pride and vanity. The more “successful” I was at this game, of mastering the art of transient intimacy, the more addicted I became to it and the more empty I felt.

Not only was I becoming more detached from the world, but I was losing myself in the process. When I looked in the mirror, who could stare back at me but a professional fornicator, a man who knows how to create the loosest of human bonds? And that detriment still occurred in spite of the fact that I was abiding by male-to-female sexual biology. If I perverted that biology further, I would have caused more damage, for I did not infect other human beings with diseases and I did not urge a woman to undergo a surgical procedure that killed my child. The costs for performing those acts must be great indeed, and I’m lucky that I did not reach a point of irredeemability and hard-heartedness. I slowed down my lifestyle of fornication starting in 2015 and turned to God in 2019, suggesting a gradual healing process of four years until arriving at the ultimate truth. But for people who transgressed far more than I did, I imagine their healing timeline would be extended. The deeper your depravity, the more “side effects” you will feel, and the longer it will take to become whole again.

All lifestyles, with no exception, cause disease by their very nature, because they separate you from God. They are designed to fill you with worldly distractions, pleasures, and fame. Even if you don’t actively worship Satan, if you are not consciously serving the will of God, you are serving the will of the father of lies. Satan will approve of any lifestyle you choose. If you participate in anything that could even be construed as a lifestyle, or one where a corporation sees you as a marketing opportunity or audience segment, you have fallen for a lie, and will undoubtedly suffer as a direct result of your behavior. There is suffering even if you are a practicing Christian, but that suffering does not stem from your own lifestyle choices.

The side effects of being a fornicator have disappeared from my life. Instead of depression, I am filled with hope and trust in God that His plan will lead to good triumphing over evil. Instead of malaise or hopelessness, I strive to understand God’s will as it concerns me. Instead of depending on sex, alcohol, or caffeine, I depend only on God and His mercy and love. Instead of floundering from one fleeting relationship to the next, or one country to the next, I am focused on the love of my family and my relationship with God. I still experience the ups and downs of life, but as I share the truth to you through my God-given talent of writing, I feel more at peace with who I am and my place in this temporary world. The only “disease” I have is being born in a fallen world, of occasionally lusting after a woman or feeling puffed-up through my material accomplishments.

The word “lifestyle” is rather new. It is yet another ingenious attempt by Satan to convince humans that they can figure it out on their own, but by attempting to do so, they put themselves squarely in rebellion against God. The only outcome for a person who pursues a lifestyle is to become gravely ill before eventually suffering spiritual death.

    Hi Roosh, I thank God for the work you do, please keep it up!
    Also, I have a question I want to ask you. Could you please consider writing an article about the ’48 laws of Power’ book, I would really like to see what you think about it.

    I find that there is some truth in it, but at the same time, I felt very bad and very pessimistic about life after reading a few pages of it. I thought that I should soldier on in reading the whole book, so that I can understand how ‘evil’ people think. After all, Jordan Peterson said that in order to be truly good, you have to have a good grasp on what evil is and choose to be otherwise.

    So, do you think that reading the whole book is worth it?
