Masculine Holiness

There is a lot of talk these days about masculinity and real men in Christian circles these days.  Here is what one such “real man” – a test cricketer and missionary to China to boot – has to say;

“Too long have we been waiting for one another to begin! The time for waiting is past! … Should such men as we fear? Before the whole world, aye, before the sleepy, luke-warm, faithless, namby-pamby Christian world, we will dare to trust our God, … and we will do it with His joy unspeakable singing aloud in our hearts. We will a thousand times sooner die trusting only in our God than live trusting in man. And when we come to this position the battle is already won, and the end of the glorious campaign in sight. We will have the real Holiness of God, not the sickly stuff of talk and dainty words and pretty thoughts; we will have a Masculine Holiness, one of daring faith and works for Jesus Christ.”

C.T. Studd

Strange there is not even one mention of killing animals or full contact cage fighting?
