Grace Builds Upon Nature

During my time off, I’ve been thinking much about this blog, and where I want to take it. And what I decided is that I want to examine the relationship between nature and grace.

By nature, I mean evo-pysch/Game and by grace I mean the sacrament of marriage. How does a man emerge from the first into the second?

So, from here on out, I’m going to be trying to fit things into those two broad categories and using those two terms as shorthand. If I’m talking about nature, I’m talking about how we as fallen humans and sexual beings act in the SMP. I’ll try to offer constructive advice to Christian men so that their time in nature prepares them for the possibility of that grace.

I suppose that may sound grandiose, and that God doesn’t need my help to confer grace.

Very true.

Nonetheless, I’ll write this as my imperfect offering in the hopes that the young men coming up after me have an easier go of it. A.M.D.G.


  1. Oh no; you're a Jesuit? I'm a Calvinist; we better not meet in person, or sparks will fly! ;)

  2. Ha. Definitely not a Jesuit, but I am an admirer of the old school S.J.s. thanks for coming by.
