Every night before I go to sleep, I listen to a preacher. I have listed some of them in my Instagram saved stories. I love learning from men who love God and His Word. Last night, I listened to John MacArthur preach to the men at The Master’s Seminary about Fortitude. It was an excellent sermon. I will summarize some of it here.
Twenty five million children have no biological father in their lives. There are 73 million children in the US and 78 million dogs. It shows what many value more. If there’s no father, there’s no mother either since she is forced to go out and make a living. The children are then at the mercy of school teachers. A large core of lesbians are now school teachers grooming children to be homosexuals.
Fifty percent of children born in the US are born outside of marriage. Fatherless children are more likely to go to prison, do drugs, and live tragic lives. This country is suffering due to the absence of strong men. This has happened due to fornication, feminism, and porn. The only hope for society is virtuous manhood. Men are now largely fearful of women.
What is masculinity? It’s the willingness and determination to take the responsibility to reduce evil and produce good. The feminist lie is that patriarchy is tyrannical, toxic, and must be destroyed. Destroying masculinity is to destroy society. Weak men introduce the death of a society. Weak men abuse women and children.
Our churches need manly pastors. They need to have fortitude, firmness, and strength of soul. John MacArthur then went on to exhort all of the men preparing to be pastors to be men of conviction, courage, and endurance who stand firm in the faith and don’t compromise truth.
Our pastors are graduates of The Master’s Seminary. They are masculine men. They preach truth boldly and unashamedly. Their wives have meek and quiet spirits. They’re home raising their amazing, well-behaved children.
I love the way John MacArthur handled the entire Covid fiasco. He never feared. He simply trusted God in the battle against the government. He never closed his church. People began coming back. Soon, the entire sanctuary was packed full. People want masculine, fearless, bold pastors. He told them that bold pastors allow the people to find safety in their strength to withstand evil.
Watching John MacArthur through the shutdown caused us to decide to permanently leave our old, lukewarm church and attend a solid biblical church. It’s the best church I have attended in my life! We sing hymns and spiritual songs that are filled with biblical truths. Our pastor isn’t afraid to teach anything in God’s Word. He doesn’t compromise with the world. He wants unbelievers who attend to be uncomfortable listening to his sermons. Godly preachers will convict and challenge people to repent, believe, and live a life of obedience. Find a church like this, women. It will bless you greatly!
One last thing, during the Covid nightmare, our pastor told us that we do not fear a virus, disease, persecution, or ever death. The God of the universe has it all under control. Our days are numbered. Our eternity is secure. He fights our battles. What a breath of fresh air! Also, the people in our church know and love God’s Word. They are warm, kind, and loving. This is the way God’s Church should be!
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you [act] like men, be strong.
1 Corinthians 16:13
