Rock Bible men model our values on Jesus Christ's example. In Robert Lewis' series on The Quest for Authentic Manhood, he contrasts the behaviors of Adam and Jesus. As such, he encourages Godly men to follow Jesus, and:
- Reject Passivity. The first Adam fell into passivity and disregarded his responsibilities. His decisions were based on personal instinct, human reason, and reaction. This is a natural course, but we are called to a spiritual one.
- Accept Responsibility. The opposite of accepting passivity is accepting responsibility. Jesus accepted responsibility for a will to obey, for a work to do, and for a woman to love (the church).
- Lead Courageously. Jesus set direction, provided protection, and made provision. Godly men are called to do the same, but in order to do so, we must master one significant obstacle: our feelings.
- Invest Eternally. Our actions are deposits into the bank of expecting greater rewards to come.
