I Corinthians 16:13 (KJV) Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
I Corinthians 16:13 (YLT) Watch ye, stand in the faith; be men, be strong;
“….I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” Vince Lombardi

This is a comment from observation. There are those who are not necessarily religious who “get it,” who understand the need for cultural battle more than the church.
Luke 16:8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
There are those who are not necessarily religious, but who understand the extreme danger of the satanic globalists. Indeed, they will even discuss the dangers of satan more strongly than the church. They stand against transgenderism and many of the ills of today’s society more strongly than the church.
Elon Musk, in being willing to permit Matt Walsh’s “What is a woman” to be shown on Twitter, has probably done more to break the spell of transgenderism than many sermons that have been preached in churches.
There are other individuals out there, it is not necessary to mention names because there is more than one, but they talk about the takedown of manhood. Testosterone has decreased in men because of diet. Men have been feminized and marginalized.
It is good that these individuals, whether they are religious or not, are taking a stand against the satanic globalists.
But for those in the church who say, so what, why are you saying this, I will explain. This will be a little raw, but it’s got to be said for those who haven’t thought this through.
Your young men are looking for models of manhood to emulate. God didn’t create emasculated men, feminized men, neutered men. Satan and modernists did.
Throughout history, until recently, men could be counted on to defend the family and society. Is that the model that we see today?
Again, there are those who are not necessarily Christian who are saying … don’t abort, take care of your family, your loved ones. They have some things right. However, they may not necessarily believe in biblical marriage. Therefore, they become examples of fornication, even though they may have other things right.
If you want your sons to see a godly, strong manly example, you have to do at least as much as those who are not going to church but who are fighting the cultural battles. If not, your sons may look to some of these individuals as cultural warriors. These individuals are willing to go to battle against an ungodly culture, more than some church members. These individuals are willing to correct their testosterone levels, more than some church members. While they may have some things right, even more than the church in some ways, some of them are into fornication, since they don’t have a biblical structure. Are those the manly examples you want for your sons?
Your sons may go to those who have more testosterone and cultural fight in them, and those people may not necessarily have the fulness of the faith. Your sons need to see manhood in action.
I won’t belabor the point, as I have spoken of it before, but I believe the root cause of whether someone resists cultural rot or not is a person’s eschatalogical belief which will incite him to either action or inaction.
