How We Can Strike Back Against the Not-So-Secret Enemy of Biblical Masculinity by CHARISMA HOUSE
“There’s a vicious opponent of masculinity dancing around the cultural ring these days, throwing punches at men and their God-given identities. It is no secret who our opponents are,” says Dr. Tim Clinton in his new book co-authored with Max Davis, Take It Back: Reclaiming Biblical Masculinity – The Heart and Strength of Being a Man.
Our country is locked in a battle of the ages, with good and evil pitted against one another; and men are right in the middle. Manhood is not celebrated, but demonized. Men are being pounded daily—they aren’t just on the verge of being knocked out, they’re on the verge of dying—their voices and influence eliminated.
“This distorted view of masculinity is weakening our whole society,” Clinton says. “All you have to do is turn on the television and watch the latest sitcoms and their commercials to confirm this. Instead of strong men such as those in Braveheart and The Patriot, traditional males today—fathers particularly—are more often than not portrayed as nitwits or chauvinistic. Their counterparts, however, are usually cool, quick-witted males who are heavily effeminate, not to mention often atheist with a sarcastic or condescending tone against those bigoted, mindless Christians and conservatives. Vicious progressives will stop at nothing to achieve their godless agenda.”
The reason for this is simple. Satan wants to destroy the family, and the way he does that is to undermine men, destroy their God-given roles and redefine the biblical definition of manhood because he wants to see the family unravel and society crumble, Pastor Tony Evans warns. “What we’re seeing, and will continue to see, is the decimation of the family, because the man is the foundation of the family, and the family is the foundation of society.”
