2 Corinthians 1210
That is why, for Christs sake, I delight in
weaknesses, in insults, in difficulties. For when
I am weak, then I am strong.

Yes, there were feelings of inadequacy, but the
promise of God overcame that inadequacy in Moses
and Joshua. That same promise remains today!

Our very survival as a nation will depend on the
presence or absence of masculine leadership in
the home.
James Dobson
27
You can name anything you want to name, but I am
opposed to anything in the world that
de-emphasizes the line of difference between the
sexes. I believe ladies ought to be feminine,
sweet, lovely and charming. I believe
Jack Hyles
28
men ought to be strong, masculine and decisive.
Im opposed to anything that makes a man and a
woman act alike, look alike, dress alike or talk
alike.
Jack Hyles
29
Women 50 years ago wanted their men to be
fearless, chivalrous, honorable and
self-confident Their heroes were ultra-manly
Hollywood stars such a Humphrey Bogart and John
Wayne I can date the demise of
Dr. Harvey Mansfield
30
manliness to the beginning of the rise of
feminism in the Sixties Forty years later, for
the first time in history, we have a gender
neutral society We need a change in our thinking
so that both men and women can lead fulfilled
lives.
Dr. Harvey Mansfield
31
Is this what it is going to take until you
recognize Gods roles for men and women are to be
taken seriously?
32
Conclusion and Summary
Here then is my point. We need dads being real
dads so their sons and daughters will grow up
fulfilling the roles God has given them as
Christian gentlemen or as Christian ladies!
33
Joshua 2414-15
Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all
faithfulness. Throw away the gods your
forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in
Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the
Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether
the gods your forefathers served beyond the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land
you are living. But as for me and my household,
we will serve the Lord.
