"One point I think is missing from the thread: God speaks in many ways. It may be His audible voice, but He uses his written word and the advice from others as well. Have you listened to all of this?"

"Will, I know a very few men - that actually radiate love. They are satisfied with a simple life that doesn't require material clutter which most people consider essential. They work very hard - and are generous with the bounty they are blessed…"

"I think virtue is often not just beyond non-believers, but beyond me personally.  Sometimes I can't manage it. Ricky, I think of this, and I note how most I know don't seem to be actively trying to become better.  I meet many who…"

"As a clergyman I have been exposed to people a lot.  The nature of the business. I have stood as a witness of untold number of confessions. We the people of the church have failed to improve on the human character at all. …"

Liam Strain replied to Rob Sexton's discussion Secular Manhood vs Christian Manhood in the group Christian Men
"Such manliness can only be achieved by men. Nothing in your list is beyond non-christians. That is to say - all men are capable of the virtues it espouses - whether some of them are all that important (or a virtue, or even manly), is another…"

Antony Allison replied to Rob Sexton's discussion Secular Manhood vs Christian Manhood in the group Christian Men
"Two Christian movies, Fireproof and Courageous, both define a man (a husband), a real Christian man down to a tea. Since I came across these movies, I have attempted to imitate such manliness. Such manliness can only be achieved by the grace of God.…"

"To be a good Christian Man means to be the very best you know to do at the time - and trust God for the outcomes - It's an active faith - Give God your best and God will guide you or bless what you choose!"

"I think the bigger issues here are worth discussing, so I'm going to help the revivification of this thread. On the secular man v. the Christian man - I answered this over in Catholic Men. To the natural virtues of courage, temperance, justice,…"

Will replied to Rob Sexton's discussion Secular Manhood vs Christian Manhood in the group Christian Men
"Well, I know a lot of secular men, so that's probably close enough... that, and studies masculinity across cultures, informally.  _Most_ of what I encounter about masculinity is by nonbelievers.  We could certainly discuss what that…"

Vytautas replied to Rob Sexton's discussion Secular Manhood vs Christian Manhood in the group Christian Men
"It seems like from the beginning this conversation is pre-ordained to go "secular manhood BAD; Christian manhood GOOD". Has anyone really explored what secular manhood is? Have we discussed philosophers who were either non-Christian or…"
