To be called a Man is the greatest title one man can give another. Males are born but men are made—forged in the fires of right choices over time. Males and men are different. A man is a breed apart from his male counterpart who masquerade as men but are nothing more than boys with pubic hair. Males talk. Men act.

Biology doesn’t make the man. Age doesn’t make the man. Success doesn’t make the man. Money doesn’t make the man. The law doesn’t make the man. A man is as a man does.

Is this participation-trophy era of the impotent male the lines have become blurry. Listen, laugh, and learn about manhood with Jim Ramos and producer Dale Collver as The Man Card Podcast draws a clear line in the sand between males and men interviewing real men in the arena, living real life, in real time.

The men in the arena, society’s anonymous heroes who choose victory over defeat, attack over retreat, fight over surrender, and action rather than lip service.

Jim is a nationally sought after speaker and the author of nine books including the popular Field Guide—A Bathroom Book for Men with 365 daily readings. If you’re man enough to lead the way in long-term transformation check out our five-book The Man Card Series at wwww.thegreathuntforgod.com and start a team in your neck of the woods!

    You love your wife, but do you accept her? EP 440

    You love your wife, but do you accept her? EP 440

    … Accepting your wife
    Our first year of marriage was hell and you can read about it in my book Strong Men, Dangerous Times.
    We were married 9 months after dating and really didn’t know each other the way we probably should have.
    I discovered that it was easier to love her than to accept here. I needed to accept who she was.  
    I had to accept I had no power to change Shanna, but I could change my attitude towards her and try to win her.
    We win our wives when we accept, love and serve them.
    Boots on the Ground
    Without using physical features, make a list of what you love about your wife. Then take her on a date and share this list with her.

    Why Cohabitation Before Marriage is an Ignorant Dumb, Unwise, and Overall Bad Idea EP 438

    Why Cohabitation Before Marriage is an Ignorant Dumb, Unwise, and Overall Bad Idea EP 438

    Why it is Bad????
    The Bible GEN 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
    1 COR 7: 1Now concerning the things about which you wrote, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 3 The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.
    HEB 13:4 Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge
    1 Cor 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.
     
    Testing the relationship creates a cracked broken relationship foundation because it is a relationship that based on a test and not commitment  
    Marriage and children will never be convenient. If your marriage is based on this myth you will struggle.  
    It dishonors the woman you are called to protect by parading her around.  
    Statistics prove that it is a BAD idea with 70% of cohabitator divorcing over the already high 50%. Again, the Bible proves itself over the world’s wisdom  
    Psychology Today The new study is by Michael Rosenfeld and Katharina Roesler. Their findings suggest that there remains an increased risk for divorce for those living together prior to marriage and that prior studies suggesting the effect went away had a bias toward analyzing shorter versus longer-term effects. They found that living together before marriage was associated with lower odds of divorce in the first year of marriage, but increased odds of divorce in all other years tested, and this finding held across decades of data.
    SOLUTION “IF you are claiming to follow Jesus” If you do not, then do what you want.
    Get married asap Move out asap Keep doing what you are doing and pay for it. www.meninthearena.org

Regular listener

I’ve been married for 8 years, I have two kids. Listening to this podcast has me constantly thinking and rethinking the way my household is run. It’s been instrumental in making me the man my wife needs me to be, as well as being the dad my son and daughter need. Always looking forward to the next episode!
