A primer on the dos and dont’s for first-time fathers with babies incoming.
After nearly three years of development, we are pleased to announce that our book is finally available in both hardcover and Kindle versions: It’s Good To Be A Man: A Handbook for Godly Masculinity by Michael Foster and Dominic Bnonn Tennant.
A man with a mission is hard to control, hard to cancel, and dangerous to a society that wants no competition from the righteous. He is the only kind of man who is really being a man. Here’s how to develop your mission, with scriptural groundwork, practical steps, and the example of Gab’s Andrew Torba.
A great deal of the collapse of the Western church can be traced to a combination of white knights and overly-influential women. This is both a historical reality, and an ongoing pathology in most churches today.
White knights are men who derive their value from defending damsels in distress against evil forces. They are willing to engage in a fantasy to achieve this—imagining evil women to be damsels, and good men to be dragons. This is a kind of arrested development caused by a failure to emotionally separate from their mother during adolescence.
The world has been falling apart since Eden. It’s part of the plan. Destruction is necessary to the work of restoration. And restoration is a multi-generational project.
Piety is the willing pursuit of our duties toward God and man. A living faith always issues in such piety—for men, this looks like natural masculinity. Yet many of the Christian Elite seem to loathe masculine piety. This should not be surprising when a majority of the Christian Elite are spiritual and physical dumplings.
Daniel was a hero for flouting the king’s 30-day edict against lawful worship during the exile. So why have churches today capitulated en masse to the state’s indefinite edict against lawful worship during lockdown?
Because of what man was made for, every one of us has a faith that controls our hearts—and we spend our lives continually in service of this faith.
Most of the snowballing social problems that we are dealing with today are a result of rejecting the biblical view of covenant. Androgyny, identity politics, social justice, cancel culture—all the “Clown World” pathologies that are indistinguishable from parody—are the inevitable outworkings of this.
There are folks out there calling themselves red pill Christians. We believe this is no better than the many people who consider themselves feminist Christians, or social justice Christians, or gay-affirming Christians, or whatever other idol of wokeness they have discovered in the world and then attached Christianity to.
Because marriage can only work if a man is invested in his wife, men have a tendency to make women their source for approval. This is a bug that arises from a good feature. The solution is not to despise women’s influence, nor our call to rule; it is to balance both by placing ourselves under God’s rule and practicing his plan for marriage.
Don’t let dealing with feminists get you down. Break out the shot glasses and have some fun!
Although servant leadership could be a biblical doctrine describing leadership as the service that men render, in reality it is a term used to convince men that servitude is in fact what leadership is.
Feminism hates the power hierarchy that God has built into creation. But we cannot restore that hierarchy by hating it ourselves—and we do hate it.
God represents his fatherhood through the created order; how a younger man speaks of God, and how he treats older men in real life, reflects how he treats God in his heart.
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.
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?
What you wear, the mannerisms you employ, the way you hold yourself—these are a form of expression. What does your bearing say about you?
The concept of “on earth, as in heaven” applies to worship just as much as to doing God’s will day by day. When we attend church, we are entering spiritually into a heavenly reality—which has serious ramifications for our worship.
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.
Red pill gives us “how things are” without factoring in the fall or the power of redemption. That is its danger. Its benefit is found in a willingness to state things that feminized evangelicals refuse to admit are true.
