The Word of the Gentleman – Part 2

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 he developed 15 rules of mind for the 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 the 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. This is the last in th series: Rules six through fifteen including: a gentleman will dress as one.
