This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull honestly and thoughtfully.

Colin Campbell “Meat For Men” Above Rubies –Men of Courage: No Time For Powder Puffs November 8, 2012


Men, if we are going to be men of courage, we must speak up for what’s right when the opportunity presents itself. If you have got any truth in you, for goodness sake, SAY IT! Do not hide truth behind closed doors.

Edmund Burke wrote, “All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to
do nothing.”

The question we need to ask ourselves is, How righteous are we really when we do not speak up when we should? God is calling for all Christian men to use every opportunity possible to be light shiners and salt preservers.

True men will always cringe when they see men sucking up to the false, especially when the false are rich, predominant, popular, physically stronger, or politically powerful.

When someone is telling a lie, speak up and tell the truth.

It is high time for us men to tell it the way it is, no matter who is listening. We may get persecuted for it. We may lose our job for it. Even our friends at church, who we wish to impress, may despise us when we do not toe the party line. So what! It’s time for men to be men and get rid of all that is yellow and gutless.

No more time for powder puffs and prissy men who hold their peace when the sword should be drawn.

Be encouraged. Colin

  • Two problems with this:

    1) Lack of courage to speak out when necessary is negatively associated with femininity.
    2) There is no nuance or any reflection of the complicated nature of reality. Sometimes it’s appropriate and right to speak up, and sometimes it isn’t. Proverbs speaks of “a word fitly spoken” and talks about how fools just shoot their mouths off, and also says it’s a bad idea to meddle in things that aren’t our business.

    No, no, chaps, you’re supposed to keep silent and pray, and hope that God will change their hearts in response to your gentle spirit. Gutlessness will be rewarded, if only you can be gutless enough!
