Lately, there is some political correctness that ridicules “toxic masculinity.”
I believe there is actually a lack of real masculinity. And it causes problems. While it may not be a popular view among the talking heads on TV, out here in the real world, we always know what a man is.
But let’s just state what being a man is not. It is not drinking a beer, killing a deer, sleeping with a woman, leaving Mom’s house, enlisting, getting married, or having children. It is possible to do all those things and still be a large boy. True manhood is not an age thing either. I’ve met 17-year-old young men who are more men than some 47-year-old men. Manhood comes from the heart.
I Corinthians 16:13-14 warns us to “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” (NASB)
The Orthodox Jewish translation states more succinctly: “Watch, stand firm in the faith, be men, be strong. Let everything you do be done in ahavah (agape)”
Traits Of A Real Man
WatchReal men are on alert for threats to those they protect. Whether it be total strangers or those within their family. Any threat must come through that man.

Be menNotice that it simply tells the reader to “be men.” That assumes the reader already understands what being a man is.
Best experience we could have received from any firm. We never felt like a number but more like family that is dearly loved the way the Peel Law firm treated us. Highly recommend David Peel!Jeremy W.
Being A Real Man In The Real World
If you are a beautiful girl who had too much to drink at a party, many males will take advantage of the situation—you may have no memory whatsoever of what happened. You may find yourself nude behind the dumpster, unclothed in a strange bed, or in a strange hotel room. You may find yourself on a humiliating video on the internet or pregnant with a stranger’s child. However, if a real man finds you in such shape, you will wake up fully clothed in your own bed. There may even be a big glass of water on the nightstand with a couple of aspirin. Your apartment door will have been locked securely from the outside with your keys slid back under the bottom of the door.
No woman will ever fear being loved by a real man. What they should fear, but often do not, is falling for a grown up boy who can pull off the act for a short time—- just long enough for her to become ensnared.
