Quotes from this episode:

"I resolutely hope for an uprising of men, oriented men, who will make a Kingdom difference in the world." - from The Heart of a Warrior by Michael Thompson

"An oriented man is a man who knows who he is, where he is, and the good God is up to in his life." - from The Heart of a Warrior by Michael Thompson

"These days, I get to hang out with men, oriented men, men who are not bulletproof, but who get hit far less than they used to. Men who struggle, but who struggle well." - from The Heart of a Warrior by Michael Thompson

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28

"The glory of God is man fully alive." -Saint Irenaeus

"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." 

"Recovering our boyhood is important to recovering our masculinity." -Michael Thompson

"What are the odds you've interpreted your life accurately? If there is any margin of error there, you are susceptible to something false. Lies. And how many lies does it take to keep a good man down? One. One good one, and a back up, just in case." -Michael Thompson

A picture of the False Self: "It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on." Galatians 5:19-21 MSG

"A beloved son is one who experiences the unconditional love of his Father in a way that deeply impacts him, and leave him with these three things: nothing to hide, nothing to prove, nothing to fear." - from The Heart of a Warrior by Michael Thompson

"The invitation from God is intimacy, oneness, and connectedness with Him. The fruit of that relationship is an oriented man with nothing to hide, nothing to prove, nothing to fear."  -Michael Thompson
