Here’s a little excerpt from my new book: “Rooster call- rising up to be God’s man” Coming soon.
In our effort to rightfully elevate and esteem women to a place of dignity over the last 30 years, something horrible has happened by those looking to exploit this consideration. While making great strides for the rights of our female counterparts, the pendulum has unexpectedly swung way over to the other side, with the result that true manhood has been lost and is virtually becoming extinct! Authentic masculinity has been degraded and devalued to a point it is regarded as the problem for what is wrong in society today. And this message that was once subliminal and covert is unabashedly proclaimed now to where it is even dangerous to be a man, leaving men inhibited, confused and guilty about who they are and who they are to become. This is especially true for young men.
Yet manliness and masculinity are virtues found in Jesus and extoled about him in Scripture. More importantly it is a beautiful attribute, something to be desired. God made masculinity just as he made femininity. And God needs masculinity, strength, and the adventurous spirit of a man to further His Kingdom in a world where there is fierce opposition against it. God came into this world as a man and chose twelve men to continue His mission. Women, of course, are just as necessary in furthering the Kingdom but in a different way. No matter how you feel or no matter what society says or tries to say, men are extremely important to our existence and good men to society’s well-being! I hope you’ll come along and awake from the influence of the world’s intention to devalue and debase men and realize the great privilege we have to rise up to be God’s Man.
