Men Wanted!

Popular American culture has long put forward a vision of rugged masculinity. Just look back on history! It reminds us that our ancestors were conquerors, adventure seekers, and physical specimens of toughness. The revolutionary, the cowboy, and all the way to the astronaut who strapped himself to the top of a rocket built by the lowest bidder, our society was built on macho. We were pioneers in innovation and creativity, inspired by a vision of masculine domination of our domain. Those great heroes were not conformed to this world, they were only limited by the parameters of what the mind could conceive!

Somehow those same ruddy individuals got convinced to trade the posture of "The Duke" for a more sensitive feminine pose. Absent are the role models for young men who domineered their domain, traded for the manicured "metro sexual" model. They traded games like "King of the Hill" for events where score isn't kept for fear their fragile egos might be impacted. Personally, this doesn't fit definition of living in God's image, and our youth is being impacted in a negative light.

Then God said," Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish in the sea, and over the birds in the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." Genesis 1:26

It's hard to have dominion over anything when your carrying a purse and are afraid to ruin your manicure. We are called by God to do work for humanity. We are designed to work hard for what is good and holy. This will at times require males to lift up their skirt and kick off those high heels and exert his dominion "over every creeping thing that creeps." There is no room for the squeamish, the faint of heart, or those with a feminine posture. It will require a man who grabs the bull by the horns and addresses problems with the posture of a warrior of God. The Lord blessed us with this earth to keep it, and keep it we must. We have a custodial duty that includes raising other men, as men. God has provided us with an abundant supply of women, so there is no need to intrude on their femininity. If God had intended men to act like women, why did he create us with different attributes? There is a line of demarcation, and it's there for good reason.

Finally, live your purpose. Don't try to be something your not designed to be. Men don't need to assume the role of women. There are so many other challenges in this great world to conquer. Why not live your purpose?

God Bless!
