As we grow more capable of the fruit of the Spirit manifesting itself through us in self-control, we are able to look past our own selfishness and benefit not only others, but ourselves too! Nolan looks at how this is possible from the truths of scripture.
All content revolves around our mission: help men joyfully glorify Jesus Christ as king and fulfill their role as leaders in taking dominion in God’s world, every day, in every realm of life. We post articles, audio, videos, book reviews, interviews, and more containing gospel truth, sound theology, practical wisdom, creative inspiration, Godly conviction and encouragement all to fulfill this mission as men. Our posts are created by men of God, for men of God, from a reformed, evangelical, “hard complementarian” (a.k.a. biblical patriarchal) view point. In other words, we’re not embarrassed by God’s word, and we aim to do our duty as leaders in applying it to every aspect of life in God’s world.
Waging War As Men, For Men

We’ll send a carrier pigeon with a summary of the week—free as grace!
We love creating and we love a well created item or experience around here! This little project was and is a terrific example of this. After all, it’s working with God’s very word as the material, so it’s already awesome! Did you order a set? Will you be ordering?
If we are to be men of God, cable of being used by God in meaningful ways, we must learn to be humble or we will learn to be humbled. God is clear about this. We see a challenging example of this in the leadership and development of Peter as Jesus discipled him.
Maybe it’s ambition, a desire to be kind, or a desire to please, but whatever it is for you, one of the hardest things we must learn as maturing Christian men is to say, “No” to some things. Payte gives a personal and practical example to help explain why and how this benefits us.
This short documentary on the exemplary and (though he wouldn’t like the term) “legendary” writer, thinker, teacher, and man of God, J.I. Packer, is an excellent and moving reminder of the kind of men we want to be.
Altar calls or no altar calls? Can they truly have value or can they actually be dangerous and misleading? Blake shares his personal story and experiences as we think through this common ministry practice.
As men we often feel compelled to be “better” or “stronger” or whatever it is that would make us seem “greater” in our minds or the minds of others. But, what is this feeling and what does it mean? Is there a way to actually achieve it? Should we be trying to?
Does musical style matter to God? Are there certain styles better, more holier, than other styles of music? Do lyrics really matter? What makes some songs more worth listening to than others for us as Christians?
There’s a vacancy in the army of God: He’s missing some resolute defenders of the gospel! Not just any fearless believer is helpful though. In an increasingly intelligent and hostile world, we need to know our stuff as well.
Could it be that predestination actually affects our lives in ways beyond good debates with your Christian brothers? Lance examines Ephesians chapter one and the implications of predestination for our lives according to this passage.
There are a lot of hymns that are cherished in the Christian faith. But, perhaps, the best suited anthem for Christians isn’t a hymn but a rock ballad courtesy of Journey. We too easily tend to forget how and where we started in our walk with God.
We never want to revel in someone else’s failure, but we do want to learn from it. We can learn a lot from the realm of sports and one of the strongest lessons: remember, pride comes before the fall… and like this video shows, sometimes, quite literally. Much work ahead, and not for our glory!
In a society that says strong men are rough, rugged, and powerful, gentleness is a difficult concept. Yet the Bible tells us much about the importance of this fruit of the spirit both in our relationships and our display of contentment in Christ.
From collaborating artist, Jessie Courson: poetry, scripture, design, and an awesome new product on men, women, marriage, and our calling to love like our example, Jesus Christ, loves his church!
One of our avid readers in the community, Gerald White, shares his top 10 favorite books from last year and why they top his list. Now we want to hear yours as well! Share some recommended reading with the community!
Brew your coffee and get ready, we’re going live for our first #HoldFastChats of 2016 with any of our active contributors who want to join! We’ll be discussing things like ambitions, goals, self-improvement and making much of Jesus versus ourselves. Hope you can join us!
With this video we take a glance back over our last year since we launched and tell you a few things you can expect for the year ahead as well! God is doing great things; will you be joining with us!?
In a world of intolerance to anything that claims exclusive truth, we must revive and give appeal to the work of scholasticism to the glory of God. As Daniel points out, we have much to learn from the holistic approach of the historical puritan and reformation thinkers and their sharp focus on theology in education.
Have you wondered why Christians like the symbol of a cross so much? Wonder what it means to us? Is it actually that big of a deal? Does it truly have that much significance? Well, yes; more than you can possibly imagine.
The “faithfulness” aspect of the “fruit of the spirit” is grown by believing God’s promises, and this fruit from God enables us to overcome many difficulties of life while remaining hopeful of a great eternity! Nolan points us to many of these reminders here!
