Commitment Gene?

I love how scientists use the citizen's money to fund absurd programs. Imagine what great stewards they would be if they were solving REAL problems!

Sweden, just recently "found" that men who have a hard time commiting, could have something wrong with their "commitment gene".


Are you sure?

What other was are we going to blame our behavior on our genes? I remember there being an obesity gene. Soon they will find a "financially irresponsible" gene. What about a "bad wife" gene? Is there a "mass murder" gene?

I better stop, otherwise more money could be wasted!

The truth is, every human being is a sinner. We are not sinners because we sin. We sin BECAUSE we are sinners.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

The reason why men, women, and children have problems with commitment (When was the last time I kept a New Year's Resolution???), promises, and other sins is because of our sin nature-its what we do!

Thankfully Christ died for our sins, was buried, and was raised for our JUSTIFICATION. Sin isn't the issue for God anymore. The issue is, will we trust Christ's FINISHED work on the cross for our salvation. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Um, yeah.... DUH!! I heard the same research myself... too crazy.

Fun to see you at Sam's today... You'll have to tell me more about your home school curriculum later. I used two different things in the time I taught Thor -- and saw a few other things that looked interesting. You can spend a lot of $$ too... part of the reason I decided to go back to private school!! smiles
