"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?"

"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…"

"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!"

"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…"

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
