Fathers Are Powerful
It’s not easy being a man today. We men are in a battle for our masculine soul. Old stereotypes have changed, but some things remain and should be strengthened. For example, a man needs to know how to pray, how to be a husband to his wife, and how to be a father to his children. Success is more than making money. Being a husband or a father lasts a lifetime.
The future of the family in America depends on men discovering God’s truth. Apart from God’s ways, situations in secular society are sad. The happiness of men or women in marriage has diminished. Sexuality is now separated from marriage. Marriage is even divorced from male and female. Children are like interchangeable parts in a gender-neutral, fatherless family unit.
Based on the media, the slide downhill seems unstoppable. Yet there exists among us a new society, a growing counterculture, composed of many happy people whose lives resist society’s assault on their family. These men and women (and their children) are citizens of the kingdom of God. For their redemptive revolution to grow and thrive, more men must love God’s word and take a courageous stand.
How does a man fight in this battle? As an example of a battle, take the men of Ukraine, standing their ground against an invading army, fighting for freedom and their way of life. Will you stand your ground? Men, we were not made to be weak. We are built to fight. We are meant to be warriors. Let’s fight like men! Read what the Bible says to men.
“Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” (1 Cor 16:12-13 NAS) “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1 Tim 6:11-12 ESV) “Therefore, I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.” (1 Tim 2:8 NAS)
God is looking for a few good men. My book Powerful Fathers shows you how to be an effective man in your own home. Here are some topics- Discover your role as a man in marriage. Honor your wife. Sacred sexual satisfaction. Discipline the kids. Stand in faith. Winning through praying. Train the teenagers. The main theme? How to be faithful - not religious - as a man in your home, so that your kids grow up to be happy, confident, responsible, respectful, successful, God-honoring adults and citizens.
I recommend Powerful Fathers to you. It took me years to write it because I lived it. It is an enjoyable book to read. Men have told me that the hilarious true story of “men hidden in trees” was worth the price of the book by itself. That’s one of several funny stories, plus good practical Bible concepts to think about and apply. Read it to become better equipped to fight like a man, a man on a God-given assignment to create the next great generation. Fight using faith, God’s word, and your own steady, brave, masculine love.

PS- Any single woman looking for a good husband? Don’t go to a bar. Go to a Spirit-filled church. Start there. Look for an unmarried man who’s reading his Bible, or praying, hands raised, face wet with tears, worshipping God. Then make sure he has a job, and check that responsible men respect him. That’s a good beginning.
