Why men are falling behind in society

20 June 2016, 20:04 Solomon Opala

Why men are falling behind in society.

When you look at the cars being drive on the road , you notice that more women that men are driving and this includes the top of range expensive cars. this is an indication of what is going on in society. There is a silent coup taking over in every industry and discipline. The reasons are many but i noticed that chief among them is the careless abandon of men. below are some mistakes that are destroying the men who are supposed to be the strength of God on earth. 

1. Not exerting themselves fully

Unlike women who underestimate their abilities and therefore work harder, many men over estimate their power and ability. At school the boys believe that they are brilliant and therefore don't study until the last minute. when they begin to be serious they get overwhelmed by the work load. any attempt to just too little too late.  When the men are working or doing business they always believe that they will make more money the next month and so don't save or practice austerity and frugality. while the women are in 'Chamas', many men feel that they don't need anybody to succeed .

2. Impregnating Then Abandoning Girls

 Karma teaches that what goes around comes around, when you cheat a girl that you love her and take advantage of her naivety or  desperation to  impregnate her and then leave her to suffer with the kid, God of justice will not allow you to go scot-free. Business begins to suffer because of disfavor and struggle becomes the way of life

3. Mistreating the wife and children

Others may not abandon the wife and children but mistreat them , are harsh  and lord over them instead of being protector and provider. This brings a curse on them and they begin to go down, The one who is given more, more is expected of them. wise king solomon advised that   ,"He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the the wind" -Proverbs 11:29

4. Addiction to drugs

Boys being adventurous begin to experiment with drugs in high school .As teenagers they lack understanding of the insidious addictive power of drugs, before long , they are zombies, school drop outs,  struggling to keep a job, their health and even life.

5.Addiction to Sex and pornography.

Another dangerous trap is sex and ponography. The amorous  hormone called testosterone in men incline them to among other things, have a stronger desire for sex. when not kept in check, sex causes much pain and trouble for them. apart from the STD and broken relationships is another hidden but potent danger called soul ties and spiritual wife. Sex is broader than we think. It is not the sensation we feel alone, there is more than meets the eye. with illicit sex. There is nothing like safe sex. all sex outside the bond of marriage attracts the curse and judgement of God. It opens the door for the devourer to strike.The man begins to loose his wealth,  loose favour with destiny helpers and make wrong decisions. True masculine strength is staying pure for your wife and walking in moral rectitude and dispensing justice to the weak.
