It’s Good To Be A Man

By on

2 minutes to read In partnership with Michael Foster, I have launched a new website dedicated to developing a positive doctrine of masculinity.

For some time I have been working with a fellow in the States, Michael Foster, on a project focused around biblical masculinity and gender roles. It started on Facebook, but we now have our own website at www.itsgoodtobeaman.com.

Michael and I are committed to developing and articulating a positive and practical doctrine of manhood. We want to explore how to build God’s house and exercise the dominion—the father-rule—he created us for. Our aim is to bring together, equip, and be sharpened by a worldwide community of men to mature into godly and effective patriarchs.

If you’d like to read more, or get involved, check out the site. We also have a newsletter which you can easily subscribe to there, if you’re not the kind of person who uses social media or checks websites often.

Wow, that is an awesome new website. Many thanks, I am sure it will be a blessing to many guys out there!

I loved your article on comedy:

“Before a perversion can seem glamorous, it often has to seem harmless and safe. It has to be normalized. And an extraordinarily powerful way of doing this is by making it funny. It’s not a coincidence that comedy routinely revolves around various forms of sexual sin.”

I experienced this quite strongly some years ago when I was at a friend’s house and ended up watching part of a popular American TV show, “Will and Grace.” It was so well-done that I ended up laughing at and enjoying a show that was quite clearly glorifying and normalizing all sorts of sin and perversion. Afterwards, I shook my head and wondered what I had been thinking. But it became crystal-clear to me why Americans have fallen so heavily for the sexual perversion agenda and the progressive agenda in general. Once you sit in front of a television and watch the slick social advertising (in the form of popular TV shows) year in and year out, you have committed yourself to believing its gospel, willingly or not.

Great work – thank you.

P.S. Thanks for talking about the contraception issue – most male
Christian bloggers aren’t willing to touch that one with a ten-foot pole (and if they do, they’re usually pandering to the contraception agenda, not standing up to it). Bravo.
