  1. Being a Man Old School Men of God

  2. “Women go to church; men go to football games. Laymen attend church activities because a wife, mother, or girlfriend has pressured them…If a man goes to church, he goes because a woman has wheedled him into what he would normally consider unmanly behavior. But if he goes voluntarily, he suffers suspicions about his masculinity…A devastating criticism of Christianity is many men see it not only as irrelevant, but as effeminate…As one man put it, ‘life is a football game, with men fighting it out on the gridiron, while the minister is up in the grandstands, explaining it to the ladies.’” -Leon Podles

  10. Weak Men will often committ three Sins: ABUSE their manhood Proverbs 14:16-17: “A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. 17 A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, And a man of wicked intentions is hated.” AVOID their manhood Proverbs 3:27: “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do so.” ABANDON their manhood Proverbs 2:12-15: “To deliver you from the way of evil, From the man who speaks perverse things, 13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness To walk in the ways of darkness; 14 Who rejoice in doing evil, And delight in the perversity of the wicked; 15 Whose ways are crooked, And who are devious in their paths”

  11. Failure of the First Adam - Success of the Second Adam Romans 5:12-19: “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned-- 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. 17 If, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. 18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous.”
