Protect Your Sons

Protect Your Sons

We live in a world that is not our final destination. We must be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. We must raise our children in the nurture and in the admonition of the Lord. Their eternal souls are all that matter in the end.

This was removed by Instagram a few hours after posting it yesterday morning because it was considered “hate speech.”

There are many who are easily offended by the truth of what is going on in our culture since they want to continue in their depravity. They don’t want light shining on their wickedness so they try to shut down all those who shine the light on their foolishness. This shouldn’t surprise us at all. This isn’t our home. We are strangers and aliens (Hebrews 11:13). I had this all ready to go out on Facebook but since Instagram and Facebook are one and the same, I knew it wasn’t wise to post it on Facebook.

Be wise how you raise your sons, women. Let them be boys. Let your husbands teach them masculinity. This culture needs masculine men!

…bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4

  1. Hate speech? Wow to be expected though. The world needs masculine men and the bible promotes the beauty of women being feminine and men being masculine.

  2. I’m sure we’ll be hearing lots about woman’s suffrage in 2020, as this is the centennial anniversary of the 19th amendment. Giving women the “right” to vote certainly was not good. It was just another feminist step to undercut the headship of men and overthrow their authority in their homes.

  3. Thanks Lori, here’s an article on masculine men that I shared with my men’s group and most churches need to read.

    Isiaih 3:9The expression on their faces testifies against them,
    and like Sodom they flaunt their sin;
    they do not conceal it.
    Woe to them,
    for they have brought disaster upon themselves.
    10Tell the righteous it will be well for them,
    for they will enjoy the fruit of their labor.
    11Woe to the wicked; disaster is upon them!
    For they will be repaid with what their hands have done.
    12Youths oppress My people,
    and women rule over them.
    O My people, your guides mislead you;
    they turn you from your paths.
    13The LORD arises to contend;
    He stands to judge the people.
    14The LORD brings this charge
    against the elders and leaders of His people:
    “You have devoured the vineyard;
    the plunder of the poor is in your houses.
    15Why do you crush My people
    and grind the faces of the poor?”

  4. Yes, as youths oppress the people since most parents aren’t disciplining their children as they ought (gentle parenting, not God’s ways) and as women rule over us (all the women in white coats at the State of the Union Address and everyone cheered – blech!), we can see how destructive it is to culture.

  5. Ridiculous that that was considered hate speech. We are certainly living in a world that has literally reversed good and evil in the name of enlightenment and tolerance.

  6. The fact that it was taken down…censored…so quickly, proves the TRUTH of it, and the fear of such posts!

  7. I would like to add that Christian masculinity is not always the same as the “masculinity” society promotes.

    We do not want our sons to be feminine. But we also do not want them to be womanizers, braggarts, liars, quick to anger or violence, demeaning to others, jealous and covetous, take shortcuts in life, entitled, make idols out of sports, “rough talkers,” or be emotionally stunted. It seems in the US, these qualities are what people automatically assume are “manly.”

    My husband and I raise our boys to be honest, respectful to others and women, modest and humble about their abilities, leaders of doing the right thing, stand up for what is right, be temperate, calm, tender to children, and able to communicate their feelings instead of hiding them away. They understand that they need to be faithful to one woman, not to compare themselves to others materialistically, that they need to not make idols out of sports or material items, and they should never take the Lord’s name in vain. They are hardworking and understand consequences. They should give unto others. They know one day they will need to be rational, calm, understanding spiritual and financial leaders of their family, and that God will judge them for following the example set by Jesus.

    I am blessed with a husband who really “gets” it. He had a father who thought violence, anger, sports, swearing, and being a womanizer were the qualities of an ideal man. Certainly, he was not feminine, but he did not embody Christian masculinity either.

  8. In fairness, Lori, there are many women who are high-energy and who suffer from the confines of school. My mother, born in 1920, had both attention deficit and hyperactivity. Of course, there was no such diagnosis in her youth, but her life was shaped by her inability to pay attention and stay still. Because of these tendencies, she failed first grade. However, she excelled at tennis and swimming. I inherited her ADHD (the only one of my mother’s children who did), and I struggled endlessly in school while all of my siblings were straight A students. I was and still am outdoor-oriented, riding horses, long distance backpacking, and rock climbing. Unfortunately, I passed the genes to my older son, but he did much better than mom and I did because there were treatments and accommodations for him. My son learned coping mechanisms just as I did as I matured. Bottom line is that children whether male or female were not designed to sit for six hours a day. I’m so glad my kids’ public school allowed for plenty of movement during the day.

  9. “Boys are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed as girls—15.1 percent to 6.7 percent…By the time they reach high school, nearly 20 percent of all American boys will be diagnosed with ADHD. Millions of those boys will be prescribed a powerful stimulant to “normalize” them. A great many of those boys will suffer serious side effects from those drugs. The shocking truth is that many of those diagnoses are wrong, and that most of those boys are being drugged for no good reason—simply for being boys. It’s time we recognize this as a crisis.”

    It’s a MUCH greater problem for boys than it is for girls. The facts prove it to be so.

  10. Here is the definition of masculinity: “qualities or attributes regarded as characteristic of men.” It has nothing to do with anything evil. It’s simply what makes men men. The evil characteristics you describe have nothing to do with masculinity. They are sin, plain and simply. Just as there are no evil traits with femininity. It simply describes what it means to be a woman. Let’s not mix up the two. Masculinity and femininity are not evil in any way but our culture has tried to convince people that they are and make up terms such as “toxic masculinity.”

  11. Great book is ‘The Killing of Uncle Sam’. It details how the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has been sabotaging America. They have virtually controlled every presidential candidate, from both parties, since Woodrow Wilson. It appears they don’t control Trump, but his cabinet is full of CFR members.

    Your post was great, Lori.

    They are ruthlessly censoring Christians. Unfortunately the Christian Churches have been infiltrated by the CFR starting with Harry Emerson Fosdick and Allen Dulles.

    I’ve been banned for life on Twitter, after only being on there for two months. Suspended ten times on Fakebook, and banned for life from The Gateway Pundit, the Atlantic, and Linked In.

    I’d have to question the Christianity of Christians who aren’t getting banned and kicked out of city council meetings.

    My local paper is a Communist rag.

    Morgan Hannigan is a local pot dealer and a Marxist Democrat delegate.

  12. Hi there Lori, I totally agree with you that children are not built to sit still for 6+ hours a day, however that said, I also do think it is good discipline for them to do so! We all have to do things as adults that we don’t want too or things that make us uncomfortable.

    I have a friend who has 4 children and 2 of the boy’s and her only daughter all suffer from ADHD – surprisingly it is the daughter who is the one with it the worst! The boys have managed to pour their energy into their work now; but the daughter battles dreadfully still. Sadly it took it’s toll on their marriage and they are now divorced – it is so sad how some marriages just can’t handle the pressures of bring up children with special needs!

    My sweet Hubby and I praise God that we have made it through bring up a child with disabilities – all praise goes to our God only God and an unending amount of love gets us through!

    Love and Blessings to you and yours!❤️❤️❤️

  13. Thank you, Jilly, and God gives us the strength for what He calls us to do, but I don’t agree that it’s good discipline for children to learn to sit 6+ hours a day. It’s not good for them! Boys are being drugged since they simply can’t do it. Children are meant to move. We’re meant to move. It’s not even good for adults to sit for 6+ hours per day!

  14. I encourage any family who has children to homeschool. It is such a blessing in unexpected ways. Our son gets a break every few minutes in his studies. He can go build legos or jump on the indoor mini trampoline or any number activities during the day along with his school work. He is able to excel in his studies in large part because he is able to move around. Often when he was younger he would be in motion while I explained a concept. That motion actually helped him learn better even if on the outside it looked as if he wasn’t paying attention. Many boys are this way.

    You know that an institution has outlived it’s usefulness when you have to drug a large percentage of inmates to even be able to abide it. That’s not rocket science.

  15. It would be “toxic femininity” to them and I am sure many radical feminists think that femininity is toxic since they are blinded to our Creator and His plan for them. Look at the woman at the Golden Globe awards who praised herself for slaughtering her baby in her womb so she could hold that idol in her hands. She despises femininity and how God created her. This is the end goal for feminism.

  16. I have had many discussions with my husband about masculinity and I’ve come to believe that things like violence, harshness, and “emotional stunting” are not evil male characteristics. Men are not made to be as emotional as women, for good reason because they could not fulfill their God given responsibilities if they were.

    Dr. Jordan Peterson, who is not a Christian but whom I admire, once spoke on his dislike of the the idea that “the meek shall inherit the earth.” He embarked on a study of meekness and learned that the meaning was more akin to “someone who has a sword and knows how to use it, but chooses to keep it sheathed” will inherit the earth. He further described that he believed that great men were often dangerous men. I found it an incredibly insightful study on masculinity (femininity to some degree as well for that matter). It highlights (for me), that it is not that violence or other masculine characteristics that are mistaken for evil have no place, it is that these areas must be explored an harnessed because all of these characteristics are useful to accomplish Gods purpose.

    There are “womanizers” but also men with a healthy, male sexual appetite looking for a wife to express his sexual desires with are labeled in this way. Men feel many emotions, and strongly too, but many don’t feel the need to express them. They know their feelings bare very little on their responsibilities and they do not give these feelings power.

    Once again, I do not support evil, but I also do not support calling masculine characteristics including violence or healthy sexual interests evil. These are capabilities to be acknowledged, harnessed, and directed, not to be killed. I got one like the idea of my future sons being “dangerous men” who know how to use a sword but choose to keep it sheathed. I believe that’s what Jesus was.

  17. Lori, I don’t understand little boys/girls never needed these drugs say 30 years ago. What has changed so much in this time, is it all the processed good children eat now days? I am amazed at the variety there is in whole processes ready to eat meals. It’s quite amazing and they look so incredibly yummy till you eat and then not so much!
    Love to you dear Lady!

  18. Ritalin became popular in 1955 so I am sure more boys were on it 30 years ago than we knew. I am sure diet is a huge part of it too. Children need a lot of exercise and good food. They need lots of love and discipline too, which teachers can’t give as their parents can. There are so many ways that children are being harmed these days and it’s tragic.

    Love to you too, Jilly!

  19. To many posters:

    Kindly, an article focused on protecting your sons does not negate the issues of your daughters. There is NO reason to bring up how these issues impact girls. Nothing in here suggests girls don’t have similar issues or that girls problems don’t matter. Many posts have been made about daughters, let one be for the sons.

  20. Yes, Christianity is deemed hate speech.

    Cultural Marxism uses race, sexual debauchery, and gender to create division and discord, and for their unscrupulous and tyrannical leaders to ruthlessly seize power.

    Just look at the roots of Hate Speech. It started in Communist Russia, where political opponents were branded either hateful, or mentally incompetent, and punished as criminals, or put in mental asylums. That is coming to America.

    And let’s not forget, Communist Russia and China were both funded by the Council on Foreign Relations, which has controlled nearly every single presidential candidate, BOTH DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN, ever since Woodrow Wilson. These leeches gave us the Federal Reserve which has robbed U.S. taxpayers of trillions, and given it to foreign nations, and to corporations. They also forced, in 1913, the same year they gave us the Fed, the income tax on us, with the 16th Amendment.

    1913 was a very bad year for America, as we also had the 17th Amendment forced on us, allowing direct election of senators, and robbing states of their sovereign rights.

    Of course, just 7 years later, August 18th, 1920, the 19th Amendment came along, giving women the right to vote, and our government has been explosively expanding ever since.

    Detailed very well in this book.

  21. I completely agree, and as a man, cherish and uphold those ideals,

    However, it’s extremely important Americans, particularly women, are not fooled by a ruthless and corrupt media, which sensationalizes the sins of those who aren’t controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), such as Trump, apparently, and minimizes and hides the sins of those who are.

    Case in point, Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick in 1978. Why weren’t the American people told about that in the 1992 Presidential election? If they had been, Clinton never would have been elected.

    Barack Obama has many instances of being credibly accused of homosexual relationships and using crack, but you never heard any of that from the CFR controlled media in the lead up to the 2008 Presidential election. How a candidate can come out of corrupt Chicago squeaky clean goes to show how the media is adept at creating images they want us to see. Of course, not only does CFR control politics, but they control the aforementioned media, schools, and tech companies also, which is why Lori, myself, and millions of other conservatives are censored online. They control Hollyweird, and anyone who watches movies ought to realize the creators are geniuses at portraying evil as good and good as evil.

  22. Quite right.

    Cultural Marxism rebels against God’s design for the genders, and it brings misery and destruction to individuals, families, and the nation.

  23. My thirty year old son was diagnosed with ADD as a child and we removed him from school and homeschooled him through high school. I was a teacher before I quit when I had my first child, so I knew that the schools would not be able to help him.

    Homeschooling him to adulthood was very hard on all of us as a family, but then as Christians we are called to follow what Christ asks us to do no matter how hard it may be. Homeschooling enabled him to move around a lot and eventually to develop his highly creative mind. He was able to apprentice and work hard at our church and learn some highly technical, artistic skills. He did not attend college due to his difficulty focusing in the classroom but today he has a great career in a creative field.

    Trusting God that he would take care of our son was no easy task for my husband and I. We thank God that we all never gave up on clinging to God’s promises.

    I am so thankful for masculine men who never think twice about protecting us. Last Sunday my son’s friend paid the ultimate sacrifice for running towards danger to protect others. He was a firefighter who ran into a burning house with all the courage he had and unfortunately lost his life. Thank you men for being there for us!

  24. Wow! And men have done this for the centuries to save others. Think of all of the firemen who went into the burning buildings on 9/11 to save lives and all the men who have given their lives for the freedoms we now enjoy. Thank you, PF, for sharing and I am sorry about your son’s friend. Life on this earth is heartbreaking.

  25. I was watching something the other day in which the policeman said ADHD medicine is simply speed if you don’t have a prescription.(Idk how a prescription would make it not speed…) I also used to work amongst inner city kids. One of them was on the medicine and her grandmother told me privately it was the same thing as the illegal drugs she saw all around her. Yeah, they want our sons’ brains destroyed all right!

  26. One of my sons was diagnosed with ADHD by a Christian (homeschool father of eight) pediatrician. How? By a form I filled out with tons of questions:

    Is your child ever distracted? Never, seldom, often…

    Does your child ever have difficulty sitting still? Never, seldom, often…

    You get the idea. If any parent literally went through the test and answered honestly, every single child out there would be diagnosed.

    After the first flub(My visionary young man being wrongly diagnosed.) I called the nurse in and read her the questions. And asked her if she had kids. She said to just go down the list and mark no to everything. It is rigged to make every child look like they need mind controlling drugs!

  27. It is very clear that God made men and women different and gave them very specific and different roles.

    With this in mind boys and girls need to be taught separately and with a view to the roles a God intended and to enhance theIt God given character.

  28. I noticed the name Mallory Millett in that photo.

    Read Mallory Millet’s expose of radical feminism’s campaign to destroy society and put Satan in charge.

    It is absolutely chilling. Everything you have thought was wrong with society, suddenly, you see the reason. Those radical feminists were, literally, mentally unstable, hateful, violent. In other words, women writhing in the clutches of the devil. Witch-like women in every possible way.

    Strange that all the old stories, fairy-tales, and ancient proscriptions against Satan turn out to be completely true and relevant in the modern world.

  29. Thank you Lori! I had missed it.

    Truly eye-opening.

    We grow up with these doubts in the back our minds. For so long. Then we read an article like that, which puts all our doubts in the harsh light of day, and it’s breathtaking, to see the depth of the evil before us.

    And it’s not “an accident”. It was intentional. It was planned.

  30. Wow! Just Wow!

    “You know that an institution has outlived it’s usefulness when you have to drug a large percentage of inmates to even be able to abide it. That’s not rocket science.”

  31. I am raising two boys. A 4 year old and a 2 year old. Shortly after our oldest was born we started to see clearly how society views men. I went from being a full time RN to being a stay at home mama and am homeschooling my boys. They are taught biblical truths every day and are expected to be boys. I praise God that he led us to put aside modern day Christianity and take hold of ancient truths for the sake of our children. I appreciate your blog because it encourages me to continue in pursuit of truth. I so desperately want to have biblical wisdom regardless of its popularity.
