The Bible says “the fool … but the wise…” or “the wages of sin is death, but…” The negative comes first, then the positive. Some men don’t find rest in Christ, they think God has a checklist and waits to whack them if they step out of line or miss a box. Men who believe God’s a bully usually bully their wives and children, you don’t need that. As lost people see you offer your husband the same grace God gave you, as they see him nourish and cherish you by offering you the grace God gave him, they’ll want God’s grace for themselves.

Due to Maslach’s objections, the parents’ concerns, and the increasing brutality exhibited by guards in the experiment, Zimbardo ended the study on day 6. Zimbardo gathered the participants to let them know that the experiment was over, and arranged to pay them the full fee for 14 days, $210 (equivalent to $1490 in 2022). Zimbardo then met for several hours of informed debriefing first with all of the prisoners, then the guards, and finally everyone came together to share their experiences. Next, all participants were asked to complete a personal retrospective to be mailed to him subsequently. Finally, all participants were invited to return a week later to share their opinions and emotions.

Both prisoners and guards in this study wore microphones on their shirts, and cameras followed all participants’ actions. Conclusions and observations drawn by the experimenters were largely subjective and anecdotal, and the experiment is practically impossible for other researchers to accurately reproduce. In 1973, Erich Fromm argued, as only a third of the guards displayed sadistic behaviors, SPE is more accurately an example of how a situation cannot influence a person’s behavior. He states that there were generalizations in the experiment’s results and argued that the personality of an individual does affect behavior when imprisoned. This ran counter to the study’s conclusion that the prison situation itself controls the individual’s behavior. Fromm also argued that the methods employed to screen participants could not determine the amount of sadism in the subjects.

Zimbardo further argues that the behaviors of the participant guards were not unlike those of real-world prison atrocities or the actions taken by American soldiers in the Abu Ghraib prison. Most of the guards have stated since the SPE that they were intentionally acting. Also known asSPETypepsychology experimentOrganised byDr.

Except when reading the Bible, remember that authors make mistakes. We’ve done our prayerful best to express what God wants for marriage and have quoted scripture to show God’s Word as clearly as we can, but you must base your life on God’s Word, using our words only to help you understand what God said. By the time my wife and I were married in 1971, most of our friends were already divorced. We soon realized that God had given us something precious in our marriage but we could not explain it. We spent the next 40 years trying to explain what God had in mind so others could enjoy the blessing a loving God had always intended for marriage.
