“Becoming a Kingdom Man” June 15, 2013

Popular radio evangelist Tony Evans has a best-selling book out entitled “Kingdom Man.” In this book Dr. Evans says that many of the problems that we have in today’s society can be traced back to the home and an absence of Fathers. Consider that:

• 70% of all prisoners come from fatherless homes.
• 80% of all rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes.
• 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
• 63% of all teen suicides occur in homes where the father was either abusive or absent.
• Virtually every adult social pathology has been linked to either fatherless homes or homes with a father and/or husband who was absent, abusive, or neglectful.

However, in his Dr. Evans says that all of these problems can be addressed if our men would become Kingdom Men. What is a Kingdom Man? Here are some highlights from the book:

• A kingdom man is a preserver of culture and a champion of society to keep out evil and usher in good. Being a kingdom man involves exercising authority and responsibility along with wisdom and compassion. A kingdom man intentionally aligns his life, choices, thoughts, and actions under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

• A kingdom man understands that God never said a godly life would be easy, He just said it would be worth it.

• Any man who blames his wife for the chaos in his home without simultaneously accepting responsibility for addressing it is publicly declaring his lack of biblical manhood.

• Pornography use is one of the greatest indicators that a man has lost touch with his own manhood since he has to piggyback on the intimacy of others.

• If a man is out of alignment with God’s prescription for kingdom manhood, it not only messes him up, but it can also mess up anyone or everyone else who comes into contact with him, especially if they fall under his authority.

• The time you spend with your family as a man should never be a second thought. It should always be your first thought.

On this Father’s Day (June 16), it is my prayer that more of our men will seek to become “Kingdom Men”– men who live their lives in dedication to God and make a difference in their families, the church and world!

Peace and Blessings,
Pastor Kip Banks, Sr.

    much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message
    home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.

    If you like “Kingdom Man,” you will also love “Kingdom Woman,” a brand new book by Dr. Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst. It’s great for every woman. It was their desire in writing it to “challenge women to look higher than where you are to whose you are, and to be transformed by the truth of being a Kingdom Woman.” The book encourages women to set their eyes on Christ and to pursue what God has created them to be. It is true to that goal. I am thoroughly enjoying it and hope you will, too. I think it is in line with what you are saying. They have also posted some free devotional downloads that are great on their website: kingdomwomanbook.com. Hope it blesses you as it has me.
