  • Slavic godly masculinity

    Dear Slavic Christian men, if you call yourself a Christ-follower but do not honor Christ or the authority He placed over you in church and the government, why should your wife honor you? You don’t give her a reason by being selfish, lying, slandering your pastor or boss, cheating on her or your taxes, rebelling against your government, and disobeying authority. 

    Men in my Slavic community have forgotten that they’re human and have put themselves in God’s place.

    They have become entitled and think that their wife and children are property that must be controlled.

    They believe their employees are also their property and must be controlled instead of stewarded.

    They believe that God is obligated to listen to them when, in fact, these men don’t listen to Him.

    Romans 13:1-2 says: “Obey the government, for God, is the One who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the law of the land refuse to obey God, and punishment will follow.”

    Scripture says in 1 Peter 3:7–9, “Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.”

    Men in my community have created rules that they don’t follow. They tell their kids to be honest when they lie to their wives about looking at and being with other women.

    They lie about their taxes and are fraudulent about their earnings, yet they ask God to be generous with them.

    Men in my community live like they’re rich but have a poverty mindset.

    They act like victims when they get caught in their sin and try to cover it up with their false godliness and self-righteousness. They hide their mistakes by blaming other people when, in fact, their poor character needs to be exposed all along.

    The reason why I speak about this subject is because men in my community don’t have accountability. They can speak down to women and tell them how to dress and act without learning how to honor women in their minds and actions.

    They tell teenagers how to dress without leading by example.

    There is an absence of godly men in my community. Men are willing to stand up for God’s truth instead of their opinions. Men who are eager to protect their families on their knees in authority against spiritual forces instead of just bringing a paycheck home or begging for sex to feel masculine.

    Men in my community must stop looking to money for power and start looking to the Word for their identity in Christ.

    They need to stop abusing the vulnerable, drinking, watching porn, being workaholics, using drugs, sleeping around, and degrading their wives and children to feel good about themselves.

    Men need to man up and become servant leaders just like Christ was when he came down to earth.

    When faith, love, humility, obedience, and integrity are sought before power, we can have a healthy community from the top down- it starts with men.
