Air Date: August 27, 2015
Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: James Daughtry
James Daughtry was raised in a religious home but it was not until his Senior year in high school that he started reading the Bible and trusted Christ as Savior. After high school, the Lord put a burden on his heart for foreign missions. After graduating from Bible College he went to Mexico as a missionary. Through the years he has served as a missionary in various countries. He has taught for many years on the Bible’s instructions for being a man. Through that experience he has authored a men’s Bible study book, ‘When I Became a Man.’
Young boys and teenagers are often looking for role models. Some choose sports figures, musicians, actors, etc., only to have that image shattered as that individuals falls into moral corruption of some kind. Add to this is the fact that some of these young men are from homes where there is no father so they have no source for learning what it means to be a man, much less what it means to become one according to the Bible.
When James was a young man in high school, he was learning a lot of things from society and ‘the street’ about being a man. However, after trusting Christ as his Savior, he wanted to know what the Bible said about this issue. So he attended a men’s Bible study and afterward continued to search the Bible to see what God had to say about being a man. He then began to put together his own Bible studies and taught these principles to other men and eventually his book ‘When I Became a Man’ was published.
James noted that children are notorious for being irresponsible. You may have to tell a child 5 times to clean his room but as a man, hopefully at work when you are told to do something you know to do it the first time because if you have to be told 5 times, you may not have a job. In other words, as a boy matures, he needs to take up the responsibilities of being a man and we find them in the Word of God.
Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this program:
–The accountability man has before God.
–Who is the perfect man?
–Is there a man in the Bible that exhibited child-like behavior?
–What men in the Bible exhibit positive qualities of manhood?
–The critical connection that needs to take place between older men and younger
–How should young men treat younger women and older women?
What’s unique about this book is that it asks questions of the reader. That, in turn, forces the reader to open their Bible and find out what God’s Word has to say about the specific issues relating to God’s plan for men.
