But if anyone does not provide for his own, that is his own household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
1 Timothy 5:8 HCSB
The Apostle Paul spells it out quite clearly: if a man does not provide for his own home; as in food, clothing, protection, and spiritual guidance; he has denied God, he is a hypocrite. A man is commanded to lead and protect his family in all ways, to do so is to be Christ-like; to not do so is to be against Christ’s teachings. A man is commanded to be a man and not a boy.
