Christian Knighthood: Model for Manhood

These are my thoughts and reflections on what it means to be a man today, using knighthood as a model. What does it mean to be a "gentleman" in today's society; to be noble, honorable, chivalrous, courageous, galant; to be pure; to be righteous? I explore the 12 virtues of knighthood, which, interestingly, are almost identical to the twelve virtues of Christianity. I also look at God's armor: what, exactly, is it and how can it be applied practically every day? I also offer some great examples of modern day knights in art, movies and literature. I hope this will be a great resource for you, your men's group and in raising your own modern day knight. Contact me with comments and ideas on articles you'd like to see, as well as your own success stories that I can share with others. - Waitsel
