I’ll list down the eight myths here (without explanations, you’ll have to go to the article for that):
Myth #1: Male authority means male dominance.
Myth #2: Exercising strength leads to abuse.
Myth #3: Men need to be more feminine to be sensitive.
Myth #4: For women to be empowered, men must be disempowered.
Myth #5: We shouldn't raise our boys to enjoy “manly” activities.
Myth #6: We need to feminize God in order to not favor men.
Myth #7: If men lead in the home, then they will be free to boss women around in all society.
Myth #8: Authority is about making declarations, not taking personal responsibility to see them through to a beneficial end.
|Nobody can ever be this manly!|
I sure hope you click on it. I strongly believe that each home, each workplace, each city, whether in America, or the Philippines, or in Timbuktu, yearns for the right type of man to rise up. A good man. A real man. And according to my female friends, these good men are getting harder and harder to come by these days.
In Psalm 101:2-4, David says (to God)
I will be careful to lead a blameless life—
when will you come to me?
I will conduct the affairs of my house
with a blameless heart.
I will not look with approval
on anything that is vile.
I hate what faithless people do;
I will have no part in it.
The perverse of heart shall be far from me;
I will have nothing to do with what is evil.
David made his mistakes, for sure. But he owned up…every single time. He was real. A real man. A real man after God’s own heart. That’s the kind of man I want to be. And the principles and traits of a real man that are covered in the said article are a great help for me to get there.
