Welcome to Godly Gentlemen – a blog devoted to helping men rediscover the gentleman within.
Godly gentleman features articles on helping men become better. Better leaders, better students, better husbands, better fathers, better sons, and just generally better. We focus heavily on the Bible, and the ideals set forth with the pages of that great book. We also borrow heavily from leaders, heroes, and other great men both past and present to learn from their examples. We discuss manly motivations, manly skills, manly ideals, and manliness in general.
What makes us different?
There are many other websites, blogs, and magazines that feature this content. What sets us apart is our Christian baseline. The multitude of manly media out there leaves out the morality component of being a man, which I often lament. Guy magazines are plastered with ideals that I found distasteful as a Christian, so I’m endeavoring to reunite manliness with morality. Being a man requires more than six pack abs and great pick up lines.
I’ve been observing a gradual decline in manliness that is painful to watch. I’ve watched men and boys of all ages dedicating themselves to remain children forever and never donning the responsibilities of manhood, steadfastly refusing to grow up. The boys that take those first tenuous steps into manhood turn to advice from the secular media that surrounds them. The irresponsible advice of men on the covers of magazines wearing the latest in Calvin Kline fashions fails to prepare them for the realities of life and they fail. Their relationships fail, their dreams fail, and ultimately their very ideals fail.
Am I the ultimate man? No. Do I have all the answers? No. I am just a man on a journey toward becoming a godly gentleman, exploring manliness throughout the ages. I strive to better myself each and every day, and I challenge you to join me on this journey. I want to explore what it takes to be a man in today’s society. I want to determine what it takes be a gentleman in an age where such ideals have fallen by the wayside. And most of all, I want to discover ways to be a godly gentleman in a time when hedonism rules and morality is frowned upon.
