The Word of the Gentleman – Part 1


by
Evan Wilson June 3, 2009


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2009

ABSTRACT:

When it comes to being a Christian gentleman or lady, we should want to know something other than external behavior. Christian schools have a tendency to produce what Christ describes as "whitewashed tombs" or, as Evan Wilson warns,  "One is not what one must pretend to be." Through Evan's seminars (The Mojo Oracles and The Tao of Eve) he developed 15 rules of mind for true gentleman and the true lady. Approaching it philosophically rather than behaviorally makes this body of thought applicable regardless of era, culture, or economy. The philosophical principles that cause gentled social behavior are fixed and beget it without pretension. It is always better to "transform your life by the renewal of your mind" than to be a poseur. In this seminar Evan Wilson will give a defense of the method and general introduction. This is a continuation of Evan Wilson's "The Way of The Lady, Parts 1 and 2". Rules one through five include: A gentleman is modest. A Gentleman is honest. A Gentleman has good breeding. A Gentleman has genteel carriage. A gentleman is clean.
