    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Badge Of Godly Manhood

According to Donald S. Whitney:

Fathers, husbands – if you have been negligent in this duty and great privilege, repent by starting family worship today. Again, you may feel awkward about what to say to your wife or you children about starting, but simply say that God has convicted you of your responsibility to lead in family worship and you want to start at a given time today or tonight. Almost certainly your wife will be thrilled more than you can imagine to hear you say that. Your children may or may not be as enthusiastic, but that does not really matter. The less interested they are, the more your family needs family worship. The Lord will help you. He does not call His Spirit-begotten sons to this task without giving them the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish it. The same Father who gave you the Gospel and who drew you to Christ will strengthen you by His Spirit to put on this badge of godly manhood.

  1. I once had an old country pastor, and during a sermon he stated “Long before people chased God and prayer out of schools, and the public square, people chased Him out of their homes!” If people were read up and prayed up, it would have been much more difficult to remove the Holy Bible and prayer from schools. As a country we are experiencing a spiritual and moral bankruptcy currently, due to the fact that God is not invited into the home anymore, it is not socially acceptable any longer to have strong male leaders in the home, the father in the home has been dumbed down by Hollywood and TV, and he has been shuffled off to corner of irrelevancy in the home by the militant feminist movement. This posting of your’s is the type of standard we need to return to as a nation.

    The reason the left and the Marxist socialists attack the Bible and the ways of God is because 90% of what they do is diametrically opposed to God. But thank the LORD He has the answers to our current plight:
    2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear them from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
