Go Further -- How is the Church failing men?

There is a movement of men today going to “secular” sources for encouragement, coaching, and equipping concerning their masculinity. This includes Christian men. Bruce Colbert sees Kingdom principles in some of these sources.

The question is why does it seem the Church at large is behind the game in helping men to be better men in their families and homes?

And what about their sphere of influence and assignment from the Creator? What can serious Christian men do to be equipped and empowered in a meaningful way?

Bruce helps men reclaim their birthright to power and wisdom so that they can create good lives for themselves and gift to others.

The inspired Scriptures stand above all other literature and writing. They are full of the life and Spirit of God. To read, meditate, proclaim, and pray the Scriptures releases the potential of God in our personal world and the world we influence. 

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion ..." Genesis 1:26-28 ESV

And have put on the new self, which is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created it. Colossians 3:10 NASB

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13 ESV

“Most of what you encounter when you meet a man is a facade, an elaborate fig leaf, a brilliant disguise.”  John Eldredge, Wild at Heart Revised and Updated: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul
