Of course in this highly sexualized world and the proliferation of homosexuality this would seem like a nonsense question to ask, but the population so far is still in favor of heterosexual relationships predominately. So with this we begin.
Men are emotional creatures. We cry. We watch and enjoy relationship movies. We listen to relationship filled music. We are emotional. We love so hard the Bible says “for jealousy arouses a husband’s fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge” (Proverbs 6:34). He will protect his bride because of his emotional connection.
Beside the scriptures, social media has given us great insight into the actions of men. You see the emotions here quite visibly. Men tweeting smiley faces with heart eyes. Men tweeting sweet nothings and sending Facebook pokes are a representation of man’s capability and disposition to be emotional.
So where is the rub? Why is it sometimes thought that men are none emotional creatures? It’s simple. Their emotional connection is motivated by sex. Sex is the engine that keeps the fire lit and burning. A man becomes one flesh when he is having sex. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control (1 Corinthians 7:5). If women would keep this admonition alone, cheating would be cut in half. But many will make excuses for this disobedience.
So, are men emotional? Yes! One of the main reasons pornography is huge within and without the church is because of his emotional connection with his wife has been altered. Fix the connection and pornography easily falls away. Now I do know in some cases there are satanic spirits involved and this will require his deliverance.
