I DID NOT WRITE THIS BUT I AGREE WITH IT:
In the past I have often said that this modern culture is out to destroy traditional manliness, masculinity and we have seen this come out in the open in the last year. We see it with all the sexual accusations against men by women who say these men have behaved inappropriately towards women. Those being accused are increasing every day and it will not stop. For sure men who cannot control their sexual urges are to be called out and punished according their actions. However, there is an underbelly to this saga that is not being allowed to see the light of day. That is that men are being told that to act like a man is a bad thing including men no longer being able to take the lead in courtship and how to have a healthy sexual relationship because of fear of being accused of said sexual misconduct.That the one shoulder asymmetrical wedding selections # MeToo has brought out that just asking a "girl out" if she doesn't want to be asked out is thought of as misconduct. What we are seeing now being played out is that traditional gender roles are no longer something that can be defined unless that definition comes from women or emasculated men. That confusion is exactly what feminists want and march for- the right to call all men perverts and deserving of being castrated. I am not joking as this is actually being written by women on the left.
To go along with this we know from studies that testosterone levels in men have decreased as a whole, that estrogen has increased and can now be found in most drinking water, that progressive leftists in the media and in politics and in the courts interpreting law have almost all caved to this new war. Is not all this gender identity confusion our young people not a direct result of this type of thinking? We see this played out on a daily bases on social media platforms and not so social media. You can do your own research on this as I have already put links up in previous posts on similar topics on this board.
I believe this is a deliberate deception that comes from places the Bible warns us about,
1 John 2:16 (NASB)
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
It is true that this is not something new but the way that this war on men has been waged is. It is my belief that this thinking has crept into the church through liberal theology and many churches have adopted this ideology without actually realizing it. That is why women in the clergy and in positions of traditional male roles has risen without as much as batted eye by many towards this anti-Biblical ideology. This is also why we all have been bombarded with emotional outbursts because emotions and feelings and opinions have replaced sound thinking and sound Biblical doctrine and all of the fruit of the Spirit especially self control. Emotions rule. There must be an emoticon for that!
We all know the family is being attacked as both women and men abandon their Biblical roles of motherhood and fatherhood. Also in church as women become leaders of men instead of the other way around. All the while most people are looking "inside themselves" to find peace, and popping pills to find peace and fight depression, and meditating and stretching to eastern gods who have become mainstream in every town in the west through yoga and qigong.
We must as Christian men, and Christian wives of men, take a Biblical stand against this destructive ideology. The Bible tells us God has not given us a spirit of fear, that fear is multi faceted but can be seen clearly by people searching to find whatever IT is for fear of living a life not worth living, but He has given us power and love and discipline and or a sound mind.
Christian men have a calling from God to be like Christ Jesus. God has given us the Holy Spirit in order for us to walk according to His Word in all we do. Christian men must think. We cannot give in to the emotional cries and outbursts to try to guilt us into giving away our God given roles as men.
I know eventually even a post like this will someday be called hate speech towards women if it is not already. But it is not. It is a call to Biblical thinking. Thinking and living according to Gods calling and clear teaching in His Word. Don't give in, men. Don't act like a scared child. Gird up your loins like a man God said to Job and Jeremiah.
Read this, men-
Jeremiah 1King James Version (KJV)
1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
2 To whom the word of the Lord came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah king of Judah, unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month.
4 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
6 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
7 But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
9 Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.
12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
13 And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.
14 Then the Lord said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the Lord; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.
16 And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.
17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.
18 For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.
