I can’t discern the difference discussions between national politics and Hollywood gossip columns. Maybe you can. Seems like a lot of nonsense to me.

I’m free from needing to monetize my social. There’s big money in monetizing fatherlessness & loneliness. But it’ll make you an “own man” & it won’t free those so desperate for family they’ll pay you to play the part. It’ll kill your boldness & absorb you into the “Matrix.”

I believe that celebrity Christianity and its monetary benefits are the corrosive poison at the heart of what some call “Big Eva.” That’s why I don’t want to be one of “Big Eva’s” successors. I want to burn the whole system down.

The same applies to the secular counterpart. I think the current manifestation has peaked. I don’t think the conversations going away, but is definitely changing.
There are aspects of the present Christian masculinity movement (if we can call it that) which are starting to remind me of the emerging church (EC) of the 00s. EC produces a lot talk via media (books, blogs) but failed to create any solid institutions. Thus, it quickly faded.

I'm an advocate of biblical localism. By this I simply mean giving priority to the time and place God put you. Here are six area of focus for the Christian localist... 1.

1/2 I rarely wash the dishes, change diapers, or do the laundry. And yet my wife isn't resentful. Why? Well, because I'm the... -chief discipliner of the kids -main manager of difficult interfamily issues -supplier of all the resources she needs -etc

2/2 Division of labor, y'all. We both do things the other doesn't want to do. I depend on her, she depends on me. We are a household on mission. Things must get done. Divide and conquer.

Be aware of this and pursue holiness of heart and life. And confront sin and sinful behavior in your friends. Some guys just like to fight. The Bible calls that a brawler. Some gals of both sexes like to be in everyone’s business. The Bible calls that being a busybody.

There is a move by our culture to normalize obesity & unhealthy living. This is at odds with the principles of Scripture & what once was called common sense. Eat right. Move more. Pick a path & stick to it. It's our spiritual obligation to pursue fitness. t.ly/zCif7
