“Are you winning, son?”
Men were created to win.
We need goal posts, team mates, coaches, and a scoreboard.
The Christian West is losing. Western Christian Men are losing.
But the game is not over yet. And we have not yet begun to play…
How do we win?
There are 4 layers of success that men spend their lives working on:
1.Household Success: Status, Wealth, Family
2.Local Success: Friendship, Security, Beauty
3.Tribal Success: Heritage, Honor, Destiny
4.National Success: Sovereignty, Peace, Prosperity
We must lead our fellow countrymens’ hearts back to their people & to their place. And by so doing we reignite a deep sense of purpose & belonging. Your success is not for yourself. You are part of something bigger.
The story of the Prodigal Son is a model for our context:
1) Stop playing in the pig sty of nihilism and individualism.
Escape debt and consumer slavery to rebuild your Patriarchal Household.
2) Return to your father’s house.
Gather or move to, your People and Place, to find meaning and belonging.
Contribute your talents and presence to your Local Economy.
3) Work your father’s business: Kingship
Capture or Build, and then wield, Tribal Institutions as tools for extending Christ’s Dominion to the peace and prosperity of your People and Place. Become a king that Christ is king of.
First things first:
We’re not going to get out of this mess by our own strength or wisdom. God loves you. He has a plan for your life.
Cry out to God. Cast your burdens on Him, and watch Him care for you. You will make it brother. But not by your own strength.
Discouragement and deception are the only tools the devil has.
Like David in the desert. Like Joseph in prison. Don’t fold to your circumstances.
Keep your trust in God’s protection, provision, and promotion, and give your gift.
