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!

    What is the purpose of sex? EP 419

    What is the purpose of sex? EP 419

    We live in a world that has fallen so far from biblical truth regarding sex, and many in Church have bought the lie. I regularly battle “Christian” men and their anti-biblical views of cohabitation, homosexuality, divorce, and sex outside of marriage.
    Dr. Sean McDowell is a gifted communicator with a passion for equipping the church, and in particular young people, to make the case for the Christian faith. In addition to his role as Associate Professor in the Christian Apologetics program at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, Sean travels throughout the United States and abroad, speaking at camps, churches, schools, universities, and conferences. Sean is the co-host for the Think Biblically podcast, which is one of the most popular podcasts on faith and cultural engagement. He has written, co-written, or edited more than twenty books and has a leading apologetics blog at seanmcdowell.org. In April 2000, Sean married his high school sweetheart, Stephanie. They have three children and live in San Juan Capistrano, California.

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!
