Matty’s Briefs

Under the orders of Emperor Sargon of Assyria, the commander-in-chief of the Assyrian army attacked the Philistine city of Ashdod. Three years earlier the Lord had told Isaiah son of Amoz to take off his sandals and the sackcloth he was wearing. He obeyed and went around naked and barefoot. When Ashdod was captured, the Lord said, “My servant Isaiah has been going around naked and barefoot for three years. This is a sign of what will happen to Egypt and Ethiopia.

(Isaiah 20:1-3) Good News Translation

We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have an interesting life. At least, we find it to be quite fascinating. As much as we ponder the scope of possibilities that lie before us, what actually happens is sometimes unexpected.

Like how strange it feels to be stared at, when the people staring are young women who appreciate what they’re looking at.

At our current time of life we’re part of an undesirable demographic: bald white men in their 50s with a career in middle-management. The most despised demographic in the English-speaking world. Pale, puffy products of a life of ease and plenty. Like Elon, for instance.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk hysterically reacts to these photos of him shirtless on a yacht and tweets “Haha damn, maybe I should take my shirt off more often.. free the nips!!’’

The thing is, there appears to be a niche there where the men are tan, taut and tried by adversity. Apparently, we are one.

So a funny thing happened recently which is symptomatic of the type of isolated life of contemplation that we lead. We, like a lot of people, over think things and so it’s easy to go down a rabbit hole of contemplation on a subject and it’s potential ramifications and end up in a place which, though logically sound, doesn’t take into effect the motive of the other people who may be involved. And we’ll give you an example.

We live in an apartment complex which just underwent a change in management. During the process the pool was neglected and it’s wasn’t open for the first weeks of the school summer holiday. Fortunately my job at a country club meant that we could take our school-age son there instead of the pool at my apartment.

This was the first time that we had been in public, shirtless, in a long time and we weren’t aware of how, er, different we look compared to a lot of married men. It became a problem to be there, simply because of what we look like. There then played out an odd scenario which might be told someday. maybe not. We’ll see.

Now, there are other reasons why we’ve chosen the path that we’re taking, reasons which involve the stiff-necked refusal of the Church and Christianity to engage with Matty’s Paradigm on any level, reasons which move our pawn another step forward in advancing the Kingdom of Heaven, reasons which herald the beginning of the End Times Revival.

No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.

(2 Timothy 2:4) ESV

And then there’s the reason that, if y’all like looking, We don’t mind sharing. Any way, it’s proving to be an effective defense against entanglements to have the YouTube channel. You can look but you can’t touch, I got work to do.

And here’s something else: we’re on Snapchat as mlawrence80 and we’re doing a cooking show in our briefs.



  1. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
    • believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
  2. confess your sin.
