Christian Agrarian Community Living 101

3/01/09 - The Lord's Day - After Breakfast. Ok, many of you come here and some of you write me emails and letters and messages because you want to (or you are considering) living your lives in Christian community. We believe the modern "church" is a weak and diseased proxy for what God truly designed for His people. So some of you want to know what living in community is like, and the "how to" of living in Christian community. Well, I am going to give you a primer in Christian community living. The first class is going to be called "How to destroy Christian community, and How not to" (it can also be called "Guile and Love, the differences". But before you sign up for the class, there are some pre-requisites. Here are some articles and/or sermons you need to have under your belt before you tackle the first class:
The Plague of Women, Part I
August 16, 2002, by Michael Bunker -- It is noteworthy that when Satan seeks permission to afflict Job, he says unto God: “put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.” (Job 2:5) Satan announces his gameplan: Get Job to curse God. As Job lay covered with boils from head to toe, Satan comes to him in the form of his wife, who encourages him to violate his conscience and the revealed will of God, by cursing God so that he might die...


The Plague of Women, Part II
May 19, 2003, by Michael Bunker -- The carnal human mind is so averse to God’s way of doing things that even among those who call themselves “Christians”, we find that the way of the world predominates - and those who would challenge the failed cultural norms are quickly labeled “haters” or unenlightened. “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Gal 4:16) My ministry has focused on calling attention to the apostasy in the so-called Christian Church, specifically we have heavily focused on the failures and abominations wrought by weak, sissified men who worship a false Jesus. Women have applauded my books and articles which expose the last day’s deception that religious men are under, yet I have found them to be far less receptive of rebuke in an even more dangerous heresy...


Plague of Women III: Standing Up
April 27, 2004 – You are probably surprised that I was even willing to entertain writing a 3rd part to this series, after the vicious and wicked attacks I sustained after writing the first 2 parts. They still accuse me of hating women and of being a bigot and a chauvinist. Are you surprised? Did you think I could attack a part of the Antichrist’s system of control and NOT be branded a hater? Of course they say I hate women…
Ok, now don't think I'm just picking on women. Part 3 of that series really beats up on the men... but the point is that the foul spirit that generally works inside a group or community to divide and destroy it is a feminine spirit. Not that it works only in or through women, because it works in and through men too, but it is a feminine spirit - and the Bible has a lot to say about that spirit of division, strife, gossip, backbiting, murmuring, malice, slander, etc. Here are some more prerequisites - the rest of these are all audio sermons, so you'll have to go to our audio sermon page to listen to them:

Meekness, Parts 1 and 2
Gelassenheit, Parts 1 through 3

I'd also listen to Order, Parts 1 through 5

If you can't or won't listen to those sermons, you really will be missing out on a lot of good, Biblical advice on how to live as a Christian.

Anyway, do your best to run through those prerequisites, because (if the Lord wills) in the next day or so I am going to be posting the class notes for the first part of Christian Agrarian Community Living 101: How to destroy Christian Community, and How not to

Stay tuned...

imho, another helpful prerequisite would be the series titled 'Idolatry and the Feminization of Christianity'

I'm listening to the Meekness, Gelassenheit and Order sermons again and plan to re-visit the Plague of Women series as well. I agree this Biblical teaching and its implementation, with the help of the Holy Spirit, is so integral to living life Biblically and properly in community and in general. I'm very thankful to have this teaching on which to meditate and ask for God to write on my heart.

As mothers women have a stronger internal moral compass than men - this is a biological fact. Women as caregivers are always looking for ways to achieve a safer more productive world because they are always looking out for the more vulnerable members of the community. By encouraging women to be strong and intelligent communities become better places. Unfortunately men are weak and afraid and try always to undercut and control women for their own self-serving reasons. They reward women who do not have strong characters or intelligence, meaning the human race is continually becoming more ignorant and weak willed, as the strong, intelligent women is shunned by men and does not reproduce as many children as the weak, ignorant submissive woman.

Mmmmmkay... So now we've heard from Jezebel speaking from the Book of Opinions Chapter 6 verse eleventy. Listen She-Ra, I think the world has already had plenty of experience with rule by shemales who get stroked by emasculated men. You tried it your way, you can have it. Move along now, you have got to have a few bras left to burn.

I'm a young wife and mother of two and I treasure my husband. The day we were married I knew it was of God and that our love was for his glory. In the beginning I would do anything for him and always be supportive in all his decisions. After our first baby was born it was all about the baby. I would feel scorn at him for not helping me or not being able to understand my frustrations as a new mother. How could he? He was working hard all week. I felt myself being that discontented wife that my mother was to my father. I stopped. Every now and then in times of stress I feel it creep back, the need to lash out at him. I think that woman need the support of each other more than anything. If I can give advice to new moms, please lean on your mother, sister, friend or grandma to help you. Then when your husband comes to you and says "Honey, go get your nails done, I'll watch the kids," You will feel towards him that giddy feeling when you first met and your love will be renewed. Whenever I try to guilt or nag my husband into doing things for me I am never satisfied with the result. My Grandma comes over once a week helps me clean house and spends time with the kids so I can have some solitary time to myself. Thanks for the articles Mike, confirming what I believe and reminding me that a woman's power can be used in a evil way, destroying a godly man. Woman, use your power and wisdom to aid your husband, strengthen him when he's had a bad day or tell him how amazing he is. When I tell mine how much I appreciate him working all day to support us, he glows with pride. Lift him up and put all your energy into encouraging him and your children. God will take of you, when you are tired or sick he will send you someone to aid you or encourage you. Anyway sorry for rambling but I was very inspired by what you wrote and a little convicted by what us women are doing to the church. Every woman knows it's true. Even if they deny it. In these hard times our husbands need us more than ever to encourage and support them.

"men are weak and afraid..."
Obviously you are not married and do not have a son. My husband would take a bullet in the chest for me. Men are strong, courageous protectors. Perhaps the men you know are weak but the men in my life, my husband, my father are strong Godly men. It would be my worst nightmare for my son, whom I love dearly, to marry a woman who put him down, controlled him or made him feel weak or stupid. Pray for the men in your life, encourage them, support, esteem and hold high the men that God has given you. If your like me your mother probably abused your father. When you see your mother control everything and treat the dog better than she treats your dad you learn either to do the same or to denounce that behaviour and pray for guidance to treat a man God's way.
