My last two posts offer a humorous look at questions and inconsistencies that women and men face when practicing strict gender roles. This week it honors me to post a satirical piece by Nate Sparks. He digs into common theological arguments for men to “man up.” When pushed to logical ends, we see painful limits many men face while working out what it means to live in Christ. Sadly, the outcome is less than ideal in marriage and family relationships. Thankfully, in Scripture, the dance of our Triune God (Creator, Word, Spirit) is not a chain-of-command; it is possible for unique individuals to live in interdependent oneness (more on this in next week’s post).
There is a wealth of material available today, instructing Christian men how to achieve a godly masculinity. Church bookstores are full of materials on “biblical manhood.” Despite the wealth of resources available, the men of the Church simply cannot seem to figure it out. Our pews are full of sissy-boys and cowards. 
Since no one else seems able to stem the tide of “soft,” “weak” men being emasculated by the Feminist Agenda, it is apparent my opinion is what the Church is missing. Because I have years of experience leading and piloting men’s ministries, it is time I shared my vast wisdom with everyone else.

1. Be the boss of your wife.
According to the eternal word of God, the Bible, your wife needs a patriarch. You can’t love her by empowering her to overcome patriarchy. Patriarchy is the dominant cultural background of the Bible, and God NEVER calls his people to go against the dominant culture of their society.
God has placed deep within her feminine heart knowledge that she is a delicate princess. She wants to be your damsel in distress. In all your masculine glory, you must guide her into her greatest dreams, marriage and motherhood. In return, she will grant you the greatest gift any man can receive: full submission to your every sexual desire.
I realize this sounds backwards, but that’s because you’ve been spiritually castrated.
Because of her God-given feminine heart, your wife doesn’t want equal partnership. She wants strong male leadership, to be reminded that separate and subordinate roles don’t diminish her value. If she doesn’t desire this, it’s because she’s rejected God’s design, rejected the only true femininity.
We all know most Bible translations and scholars treat subjugation of women as evil, a systemic injustice. But, thankfully, after 2000 years of confusion, the ESV has officially arrived at the only inerrant and immutable translation of Scripture. … Continue Reading
