is a 65 year old, Christian / Protestant male.
Living in northern Mojave Desert, california
Vegan for health reasons since 1975. My biological age is about 42. Survivor of childhood cancer, visibly mutilated by surgery. I have an amazing story of natural healing. I also have permanent injuries from a 1997 accident with medical complications. I am unable to engage in Substantial Gainful Employment per the Social Security Administration but I am not an invalid or a cripple. I take care of myself and bicycle for exercise almost every day. I am a very deep thinker and passionate for Truth. I am INTJ on the Myers-Briggs chart. Although I am very intellectual and introspective I am also tender-hearted and capable of deep feelings. In some ways I am a right-wing fundamentalist and in some ways I am a liberal- that's because the Christian lifestyle transcends all human definitions and boundaries.
I spend a whole lot of time reading serious Christian literature and thinking about how it applies to my life. I really am too introspective, but I have the excuse that my quality social opportunities are extremely limited. The town I live in is extremely remote and totally redneck, but I really like the desert valley and its dramatic scenery.
I think it's contrary to God's plan and very psychologically unhealthful to live alone and be socially isolated. I believe that marriage and family is the basis of society (not much left of that basis, which is rather terrifying). Metaphysically I am still young because I am still learning about myself (how sick and twisted I am compared to the perfect humanity of Jesus), growing, and being conformed to the divine image. I feel a great desire to overcome the limitations of my sinful humanness (this is not pious talk).
I am a child of God, spiritually regenerated through faith in Jesus the Messiah and, accordingly, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. I hardly need to say that I am not the typical, stereotyped insipid, conformist, shallow, approval-seeking "Christian". I regard salvation as a wholistic restoration of the image of God in humanity which begins at the New Birth. I am Reformed (Calvinist) in theology but don't believe that any denomination has all the truth. I regard Christianity (as understood by John Calvin) as a total world-and-life view that is militantly exclusive of and metaphysically superior to all others- really the One True Religion.
I expect to live at least another 35 or 40 years and never become senile or feeble (I think this is typical of longtime vegan health nuts). However it is frightening to consider what the world will be like by then. I have no desire to continue on many more years in the lonely, isolated way I have been. I think that there are very few intelligent real human beings left in the USA.
I think the real qualification for marriage (assuming congruent religious beliefs) is nothing more or less than the desire and willingness to covenant to love each other totally, exclusively and permanently. In that sense, I regard the traditional Christian marriage ceremony to be right on. Marriage is a religious sacrament, because the basis of the bond is the mutual indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (yeah I know marriage as a sacrament is a Roman Catholic dogma- even Roman Catholicism has some valid ideas).
