A Response to Nate Larkin's "Samson and the Pirate Monks" pt 2

Note to reader-these are my notes to the Samson and the Pirate Monks.   I recommend all Christian Men to read this book and then join a group in your neighborhood, it is well worth the time.
Self help books fail, because the actions are are predicated on the individual and not on Christ and his works. Behavior management  works for a while but not forever.  When we falter, and this is unavoidable, then we are left with only ourselves to save us.

A Response: "Samson and the Pirate Monks"

Why do we  have such a hard time being the saved?  We have no problems being the Lone Ranger, but when we need help it remains such a difficult thing.  Others force us to see that we can't do it all by lone wolf pride.

As Nate Larkin wrote in the Samson and the Pirate Monks:

the “Path that leads to godliness and freedom” begins with faith in an objective Fact. The ability to recognize and believe that Fact comes as a gift from God. It reaches each of us by personal revelation, like a heavenly visitor arriving at the perfect time, and it inevitably produces surrender.
