Raising Men in An Age That Doesn’t Want Them

America has a problem: men.

American society has a problem and its men. Men are encouraged today to take a back seat. You could say it this way: Manhood is the original sin of American cultural life. Our culture sees men as a major problem today and our young men are shamed for being men. We need to understand that our fundamental problem is not manhood but sin.

Boys have about 1000% more testosterone than girls. Boys and girls are different. They are made in the image of God and yet God in his wisdom created something called manhood and womanhood. What our culture needs is a surging increase of strong men. We do not want to train our boys to be inferior. We need to train boys to be more Christ-like. We want to be very clear: men are not the problem, sin is.
