What is F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith? A Podcast

F3 St. Louis #GTE23 Recap, F3 NWA Goals, Olympics Kickoff OneChristianMan

“there is no need to know the truth of the actual matters, but one merely needs to have discovered some device of persuasion which will make one appear to those who do not know to know better than those who know.”

Interesting and true in many cases. It seems that those who know must also discover the device of persuasion.

Plato in Twelve Volumes, Gorgias and Socrates

Socrates
So he who does not know will be more convincing to those who do not know than he who knows, supposing the orator to be more convincing than the doctor. Is that, or something else, the consequence?

Gorgias
In this case it does follow.

Socrates
Then the case is the same in all the other arts for the orator and his rhetoric: there is no need to know [459c] the truth of the actual matters, but one merely needs to have discovered some device of persuasion which will make one appear to those who do not know to know better than those who know.

Gorgias
Well, and is it not a great convenience, Socrates, to make oneself a match for the professionals by learning just this single art and omitting all the others?

FREE Book Promotion for Flesh Tamers – Reviews Needed

Friends, as you know I recently published my first book. And I need your help in supporting the Flesh Tamers book through downloads and reviews. Therefore, a FREE Book promotion has started on Amazon for Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm.

The goal is to get visibility and reviews for the book on Amazon and Goodreads so that the mission of Flesh Tamers can advance. If the book doesn’t earn at least a four-star review, please send me feedback directly to my email so that I can earn your stars. It is a short book of only about sixty pages, and this is purposeful for my target audience age range.

The book itself is, as the title says, directed toward men. I authored this book including my experiences as a man and the emotions and temptations inherent to men. However, as Christians we are all required to be courageous in the face of opposition as we stand on the Truth of who Jesus is. So, ladies, please don’t hesitate to help the cause here. I know you will gain from reading the book and can also send me great feedback.

What is the mission of Flesh Tamers?

My hope is that Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm is going to spur reflection and action and act as a reminder that we, as Christians, are on the side of Truth. We don’t dabble in far flung conspiracy, false teachings or hope in man, but we stand firm on the Truth of Jesus Christ.

We must be courageous in the face of opposition and be ready to accept the price of following Christ as we also must be willing to accept and repent of our own failures.

The battle may be spiritual, it may be within our own family, or it may even seem to be against our own fleshly desires. We must tame our own flesh and overcome our own fears with the support of the Holy Spirit.

The fear of speaking up and speaking out in truth is destroying the modern Christian church in the United States. Christian men have lost courage.

Christians are not being courageous in the home, church, or communities. This must Stop! Our King deserves courage as He had courage in the face of opposition. The enemy and fleshly comfort is being allowed to have an unchecked lead role as head of our lives.

The fear of losing the praise of men, the fear of losing our jobs, the fear of fully believing the Truth of who Jesus is. This first battle is within us, as men, to overcome our own doubt and start living like we genuinely believe in Truth!

Please help support the book and write a review during the Free Book Promotion period for Flesh Tamers Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm starting tomorrow.
