Quote
"It is difficult to associate these horrors with the proud civilizations that created them: Sparta, Rome, The Knights of Europe, the Samurai... They worshipped strength, because it is strength that makes all other values possible. Nothing survives without it. Who knows what delicate wonders have died out of the world, for want of the strength to survive. "

- Han, Enter the Dragon

“The cynicism that regards hero worship as comical is always shadowed by a sense of physical inferiority.”

- Yukio Mishima, Sun and Steel

The Spearhead - Online Magazine for Men

Posted on October 23, 2009 at 11:30am 5 Comments

I've been contributing recently to an online magazine called "The Spearhead."



http://www.the-spearhead.com/



There may be some crossover with interests of some of the posters here, though I doubt it will appeal to everyone.

Fraternal orders for young men?

Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.  We would try out and practice old world skills such as blacksmithing,…See More

Brody Albers replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"I prefer the ESV. I am a theology student and so the "essentially-literal" translation is useful to me since the Bible is the bulk of my research material. For my own personal devotions though I have enjoyed using both the NIV and NLT. As…"

Christian Men

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
