Marriage is the norm that God established for men and women from the beginning, so to normalize singleness is to normalize the abnormal. There is no “gift” of singleness; there is only the gift of celibacy or the curse of singleness. The counsel in 1 Corinthians 7 is given explicitly as special advice to suspend the normal way of life because of persecution—not as general instructions for the entire church age.
This is a project by and for Christian men seeking a positive and practical doctrine of manhood. Our goal is to become better at our work of dominion, rightly ordering ourselves and our world by developing those virtues and skills necessary to this task.
Our mission is to call Christians back to father-rule. That starts by submitting ourselves to the rule of our Father—not chafing against it.
Comedy is a powerful tool of acculturation—and it is effective even if you know what it is doing. If you are conditioned to treat our culture’s wrecking of good things as amusing, how will you take it seriously, or remain sober-minded about the work of repair?

The first installment of our serial guide to considering a possible helpmeet. Here we focus on what Scripture says about modesty in women, and how to apply this in the modern day.
While contraceptives are not intrinsically wrong, the ordering of a marriage toward fruitlessness is—and contraceptives often end up being used to establish such a pattern.
From the beginning, God established children as the natural fruit of marriage. Barrenness is a curse—so why would believers voluntarily bring it upon themselves?
Devotional time with your family is one of the key ways a man shepherds his house. Here’s how Michael does it.
Become a stronger man—a man whose gravitas and virtue set him apart—by simply not doing these five common things.
Most men you meet will have an incomplete masculinity, but not all are incomplete in the same way. Understanding that masculinity is comprised of a biblical triad can help in grasping where a particular man goes wrong.
