Why should we care about regaining our biblical manhood? What would the world be like if biblical manhood did not even exist?
What would society be like if men were no longer aware of the reason for their existence? Well, it would most likely look the way it’s looking now.
You can do this—recover your biblical roles as a man!
You may not realize it, but you are in the midst of an identity crisis. Men have lost their way everywhere around you. The devil has set traps for Christian men, and they have fallen straight into them. We are quietly living lives of defeat, and the only true cure is for us to rediscover our biblical manhood.
- Christian marriages are shattered.
- Families of Christians are being torn apart.
- Christian men and women are quietly in a state of desperation.
- Without any godly role models, Christian teenagers are aimless.
So much of today’s life has been consumed with merely surviving and navigating through the maze of confusion. Is that your goal for yourself and your family?
Is that how the Lord intended you to live as a man? Are you meant to just accept everything the universe throws at you and be content?
Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed.”
1. To Shake off the Confusion!
1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.“
Sadly, in our present culture, biblical manhood has been thrown to the dung heap because of all the rhetoric about gender, rights, and sexual identity.
For a long time, the present Contemporary Christian Music community has supported open homosexuality, and churches are divided over the subject. Across the board, entire denominations are ordaining openly gay clergy, and the list goes on until God knows what next.
The Confusion Has Arrived
In the midst of it all, the government has stepped in and is now telling us how discriminatory and misogynistic the biblical family model is. What are you supposed to do in the face of all of this?
It’s time to rediscover biblical manhood and claim it for yourself and your family! That is the only method to combat the perplexity.
Consider the Christian men you know: what percentage of them do you believe are actually living up to God’s design for biblical manhood? It’s time to clarify the air and put an end to the muddle.
2. The Stakes are Incredibly High!
Mark 3:27 “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.“
If the devil can keep you distracted long enough, he will tie you up spiritually and then have his way with your entire family. Don’t imagine for a second that something like this doesn’t happen on a daily basis. It’s something I’ve seen, and it’s a disaster.
True, the stakes are astronomically high! What’s on the line? The stakes are high for you, your marriage, your children, your family, your friends, your church, your town, and your country. That’s just the beginning.
If you’re a Christian man, you’re already aware of your need to be mentored and disciplined by mature Christian men. Men who can lead and guide you while also holding you accountable.
However, because there is a severe dearth of true biblical men to educate and disciple, men are not being taught about how to restore biblical manhood.
Your Christian friend has an affair, his wife abandons him, his children suffer, your children are aware of the situation, and no one intervenes.
It’s not just your family’s safety that’s on the line. Recovering biblical manhood also entails assisting your Christian brothers.
The issue is that nearly no one does this. Being a mediocre Christian man has become the new norm, and most churches now accept it as biblical manhood.
This is why so many lost men avoid going to church since they don’t find anything useful there. What can Jesus offer, right? The Christian males in the church are hurting just as much as those outside the church, so what can Jesus offer?
Satan has done an excellent job of pacifying Christian men.
Christian men don’t want to upset the status quo; instead, they prefer to go with the flow. The difficulty is that the current is rapidly approaching the edge of the cliff. It’s a game with enormous stakes.

3. Recovering Biblical Manhood Matters Because Your Family Needs You!
This is a critical issue. You were created by God to play an important role in the family. You are your family’s provider, protector, and spiritual leader. Your active participation in this position is critical.
Most men are unaware that their marriage is on a knife’s edge until it snaps.
All that could have been avoided suddenly comes crashing down on the family, with the children being the most affected and receiving the least care. All of this can be avoided if you reclaim your biblical manhood.
It’s time to take charge, quit making excuses, and be the person God intended for your family. If you have no idea what any of it implies, now is the time to learn. (That is the purpose of our website, and we hope it may be of assistance to you.)
4. You are Probably Out of Touch with God!
As a Christian man, your relationship with God must be your top priority. It is a priority for biblical manhood since it is the reason you were formed.
Deuteronomy 6:5–9 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
If you’re living aimlessly as a Christian man, it’s because you’ve wandered away from God. That indicates you’ve lost touch with God, and the only way to get back in touch is to rebuild your relationship with Him.

It requires a daily hands-on attitude to be a spiritual leader to your family, as well as a good provider and a strong protector. When your priorities aren’t kept in Biblical order, these things can rapidly become out of balance.
Being a ready provider, for example, can cause you to lose your spiritual leadership. However, you are expected to provide more than simply a livable wage for your family. You’re meant to be teaching your children about God and supporting your wife emotionally.
It takes more than owning firearms and knowing how to use them to be a protector. You can’t defend your daughter’s heart or your marriage with firearms. The only way to accomplish this is to be a hands-on biblical spouse and father.
6. Your Purpose Cannot Be Fulfilled Unless You Recover Biblical Manhood!
How can you be what God created you to be unless you recover biblical manhood in your life, in a real and meaningful way?
What is your purpose?
For generations, philosophers have pondered this important subject. There has been a lot of discussion about it, but it appears that they haven’t done much digging into the Bible to find a solution. Because they would surely find it if they look there…
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.“
As you can see, according to this passage, your goal should be to live a life that pleases God. That is why you were made in the first place. The only way to achieve that goal is to reclaim biblical manhood.
7. You Should Not Live a Defeated Christian Life!
Christian men who quietly live defeated Christian lives are much too common. Their marriages are on autopilot, their children are on autopilot, and as men, they are just going through the motions in the hopes that everything will work out.
You were formed in God’s image, and He desires for you to live a victorious Christian life! God desires for you to have a wonderful relationship with Him, a great marriage, and a beautiful family!
Is there something that seems out of reach? The Lord has provided us with everything we need to make things happen; all we have to do now is want it badly enough.
2 Peter 1:3–4 “ His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.“
If we work to reclaim biblical manhood, we will be able to find whatever we require. The Bible contains the principles, the plan, the motivation, and the step-by-step instructions. All we need to do now is reclaim our biblical manhood by following hard after the Lord.
The restoration of biblical manhood must become a top concern. If it is what you want and you have a genuine desire for it because you believe it to be true; then you are already on your way. And
