Can A Godly Man Change a Tire?

I completely disagree with Arsenal’s pietistic garbage.

Those things he mentions are important, but to say that being able to work has nothing to do with being a man is preposterous.

1 Timothy 5:8 says, “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

 

If a man does all the things Arsenal mentions, but doesn’t work, he is worse than an unbeliever.

Obviously, there are godly men who have never owned a car or might not be able-bodied, so I’m not saying that every man has to know specifically how to change a tire, but a godly man takes care of his family physically as well as spiritually.

1 Timothy 3:4-5 says that a man who aspires to be an elder must be able to manage his household, along with his spritual responsibilities.

Proverbs 31 is obviously speaking of a woman, but you’ll see that neither are a woman’s responsibilities strictly spiritual. The Proverbs 31 woman does all sorts of things to bless her family materially. Very little of what she is praised for is spiritual.

I can only imagine the weakling that Arsenal thinks is a godly man. A soft man, unwilling and unable to love others enough to change a tire. He would betray every true, biblical thing he said with his femininity.
