During the red pill phase of my life, I made a false god out of testosterone, a sex hormone produced in the testicles. I worshipped how it made me feel more youthful, lustful, and energetic. I rearranged my entire lifestyle to allow it to be more “fertile” in my body, to multiply in concentration beyond my need so that I could pursue a life of sexual sin and muscular vanity. Now that the spell of my old life is broken, I can see clearly how modern man has made a false idol out of testosterone, worshipping it even above God.

Why do women get botox, lip fillers, and other dermatological procedures? To look younger, to improve their aesthetic appearance before others, most especially in internet photographs, and to be more alluring to a male sex partner with high social status. She doesn’t believe that God had a plan to bring her to eternal salvation in making her the way she is. Instead, she seeks benefits from the world that give her the daily food of bodily pleasure and emotional satisfaction. She denies the nature bestowed upon her by God to more effortlessly live a life away from God.

It’s not much different when a man, usually older than 30, decides to get injected with pharmaceutical-grade testosterone as part of the medical treatment called testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). In fact, he is embarking on a decision that is worse than the woman’s choice to get botox or lip fillers, because the testosterone hormone biologically alters the inner workings of every cell in his body, even within his brain, while the woman primarily manipulates her outer layer of skin. Like the woman, this man wants to delay aging, improve his appearance through increased muscle mass, attract the opposite sex, and as a bonus, throw more fuel on the fire of his sexual lust to seduce women he never intends to marry. In my past, when I did all that I could to organically maximize the concentration of testosterone in my body, I “prayed” that it would put me in a lustful state like that of a dog so I could more seamlessly fornicate with women I would have passed on had I maintained a more natural bodily state as determined by God’s commandments and the environmental reality of being a single man living in extreme safety and comfort.

Only God knows if your testosterone is low. The doctors and their laboratories don’t know. They use a needle and test tube to pull a sacrifice of your blood at a single time point and use that to make a proclamation of your entire masculine wellness. It would be like measuring the function of your heart by looking at only one heartbeat and then prescribing a variety of drugs based on that alone instead of hooking you up to a monitor that could measure all 100,000 beats your heart makes in a day, or 700,000 in a week, yet even if a doctor could take continuous measurements of your testosterone, how could they state with certainty that it was too high or too low for you? They compare your testosterone concentration to historical figures codified in medical textbooks that were assembled by taking single snapshots of men who lived in times far less cosmopolitan than now, when they actually fought in wars and worked physical jobs and had more than two children by the time they were 40, all without spending most of their days looking at digital screens.

Men today live a lifestyle of a Pomeranian dog and want to have the testosterone of a German Shepard. You can inject the fluffy Pomeranian with as much testosterone as you want, and it will bark more frequently as it perceives it has become tougher, and it may even develop bulging biceps that it vainly admires in the mirror throughout the day, but it will never be able to defend its master’s house like the German Shepard. The solution is to accept who you are in the times you are in as God created you with humility and repentance instead of rushing to the shamans and witch doctors of our times to change it, not unlike how mentally deranged individuals attempt to change their sex in the name of transgenderism with the exact same vial and lot number with which you are injecting to heat your blood with passion and increase the frequency and realism of your sexual fantasies.

Testosterone is the hormone that God gave men to be protectors of society, wives, and children. When times are rough, the concentration of that hormone will naturally increase within your body to help you serve your duty before God, and when times are not so rough and you’re living like a tiny dog in comfort, the concentration will be low. There are other reasons that testosterone can be low, such as poisoning from plastics and eating genetically modified soy or high fructose corn syrup, but for most men, the level of testosterone you have is the level you need to remain a humble servant of God, and any attempt to manipulate that for primarily worldly gain is motivated by the exact same spirit that pushes women into the offices of dermatologists to have serums injected into their face so that their Instagram photos get more likes from men living in India.

God made you perfectly to serve your mission before Him. You may not believe that upon examining your dandruff, back pain, heartburn, high blood pressure, bouts of depression, headaches, and physical flaws, but He made you perfectly able to worship Him and be saved. From your perspective, you are anything but perfect, but in your ability to transcend the evils of this world to serve God in the next, there is nothing you can add through the tinkering of technology, chemicals, or drugs that could be considered an improvement. Accept your mental and physical deficiencies with humility, bear what you can, and reject any false promise by Satan to improve your body in this life beyond what is needed to worship God.

I'm surprised by how many Christian guys are all in on bodybuilding. Seems to me like an overreaction to the demasculinization agenda.

I don't think God wants men to be fat soyboys, either, so I wouldn't shun self improvement entirely. There are natural ways to raise your testosterone levels such deadlifts, and eating steak, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. Just avoid artificial injections and also making an idol out of bodybuilding. Maximize your health so that you can serve God better and for longer, not so that you can destroy women's lives via pump and dump.

An overreaction or maybe a remnant of the red pill which should decrease as faith grows in the man. To see a man who is gym-strong strikes me as highly disordered, gay, of having made a god of the male form, whereas strength through regular means (work) is the ordered one. As for testosterone, I can attest to what Roosh has written. It is obvious to me that my levels have increased based on changes in my life circumstances, without any manipulation from the witch doctors.

Used to be a big gym head who thought my salvation would come through pre workout supplements containing illicit chemicals and lifting while listening to high volume European metal. Before getting saved, I would go through life with a constant aim of chasing the high of heavy exercise coupled with the high of a pre workout like Dark Energy.

Now, I focus on 3 mini 20 min lifts a week to keep strength up and go for walks daily for an hour in free time listening to the Bible/various Christian content. This works for me health wise, though I also do not enjoy lifting solely for the sake of lifting. I may not have big muscles, however, I have God. That works for me :)!

Any good thing from God, be it physical beauty or health or manliness or even nonphysical qualities such as intelligence or spiritual aptitude, are liable to become reason for pride, conceit, arrogance, and self-satisfaction, in short, egotism which is the root of sin and totally opposed to love which implies communion.

But by virtue of this it does not imply that these good qualities therefore in and of themselves become bad. It simply means that in general man can't handle the good things of God without forsaking humility and meekness which are the keystones upon which all the other virtues are built. Man by the good things he has becomes proud and forgets God, neither has he compassion for his fellows but is fully self-satisfied and cocooned within his own egotism.

I get the point about vanity, and am sure the articles intended audience is the 30 year old guy debating on getting a clinic to write him T.... but there are two sides of the coin here.

If someone has the symptoms and is going to get medically screened and treated, i can't see how we are lumping this in with botox. There are men who have HPTA issues and at 23 have the Test of a field mouse...and their health markers suffer for it. I have a friend who fits this bill and he suffered until getting treatment at 26.

I personally don't see testosterone any different than a daily aspirin or some other medicine that you take for a legitimate medical condition such a as insulin for diabetics. But I think a lot of this is about your maturity and approach to use as well as whether or not someone is going to abuse or not.

I've been on TRT since I got out of the Marines. During that time I got remarried, found Orthodoxy, and had much success in my professional life also. These things would have occured regardless of my TRT use... But my mood, attitude, and physical wellbeing and muscle mass have made improvements compared to the alternative.

I don't think people should get on T unless they really need it, but I think evey man age 40 -45 should be on T.

Every man 40-45? Does that not constitute a rejection of our natural ageing process?

So does setting a broken bone, or pulling a drowning person from the water. Natural is not always good, and is not always God's will. Fornication is natural, and so is murdering people you hate. Civilization is unnatural.

This false worship of the natural is a secular, leftist hangover from European Romanticism in the 1800s.

Edit: I would say that many men over 40 can maintain high levels of T naturally, and that the steps to raise T naturally are also the basis for healthy living generally. I wouldn't recommend TRT for these men. Furthermore, I would raise a warning based on personal experience that if you do TRT, and eventually go off of it, your body will have a harder time returning to natural production. To some degree, going on TRT is a lifetime decision, since you will be completely replacing your natural T production with an artificial source.

If your T levels are naturally low enough to generate undesirable side effects, then I think it is reasonable to do TRT to raise your levels back into the normal healthy range somewhere between 700 and 1000. I agree with get2Choppaaa that a healthy T level can be balanced with a sanctified life. However, I agree with Roosh's warning that a person can become fixated on maxxing T for the purpose of feeling horny and pursuing illicit sex aggressively, and this problematic.

What about the natural aging process is specifically good?

I know that my father who owns a business, does mostly manual labor and is 70 got on trt at 50ish. Made a huge positive impact on his ability to do his work, and continue to provide for his family and outlive his father (despite having 2 heart attacks).

What I have seen is guys mostly former military guys around 35 getting on it to correct for years of repeated physical and mental stress and the effects of high cortisol on your endocrine system.

This includes my former senior enlisted counterpart who is now a cop and at age 36 got on trt after the initial phase of training. He's better at his job, more fit, had a better relationship with his wife So tell me how does the natural again process benefit this person?

Anybody truly into bodybuilding is not doing it for anything to do with an agenda. While I would never destroy my body for a plastic trophy the way they do, the discipline and dedication bodybuilders put into their sport is something you could not comprehend and it's not something they do for fame or money because even the most top tier guys don't attain that.

You're way way off base, it's actually an incredibly ignorant statement to put it lightly. I'm assuming when you say "bodybuilding" you're referring to the loser at the gym trying to show himself off and overcompensate for something, those are not bodybuilders.

We all must have courage, but courage is not about masculinity. Each person's required courage is matched to his mind, body and situation - and is not dependent on these being in-place.

Effeminate men need courage just the same; and masculine virtue will be improved only by courage in pursuit of Christian virtue.

All the rest is just lifestyle, hobbies, addictions, perversion or therapy - it may be 'needed' for such reasons, but should not be allowed to become a culture, or regarded as an end in itself.

Excellent question. Man was not created to age, grow old, and die. These are consequences—perversions—wrought by Satan to corrupt God’s good creation. Of course, God is still the author of life and our times are in His hands regardless of evil. But we should be very careful of attributing the consequences of evil to God’s perfect order. God did not create life to die. He did not create people to have birth defects and so on. These are the result of sin. And medical advancements that can remedy the effects of sin are also gifts of God, since they utilize the organisms and elements He created with the functionality to accomplish that task.

These are all interesting points that have been brought up and I will reflect on them. It is probably the case that my view is heavily informed by my own personal circumstances and I prefer to suffer more for the sake of Christ in all things. But I must be careful of over-extending my views resulting from my personal circumstances to others.

If that were true, then what is the argument against females taking testosterone injections to turn into tranny men?

I don't think people should get on T unless they really need it, but I think evey man age 40 -45 should be on T.

I suppose there is a shred of truth in in that our modern society is full of plastics, phytoestrogens, remnants of birth control pills in the water supply ( https://www.ehn.org/troubled-water-estrogen-and-its-doppelgangers-2641102160.html ) and therefore all men are under some sort of assault when it comes to their natural hormones, but the answer is to eat well, filter your water, and exercise, not to take injections of a hormone that has hundreds of tiny effects on your physical, mental and perhaps spiritual health.

Anyway, taking more testosterone opens you up to risks of its own, such as a shorter lifespan and liklihood of cancer (estrogen does the same for women). And if every man 40-45 should take testosterone shots, then maybe every boy 15-25 should take T-blockers or estrogen shots because they would be far less likely to fornicate, take risks, and get in accidents.

Who are we to manipulate our hormones to try to achieve a state of perpetual pleasure? And why stop at testosterone? Why not inject ourselves with endorphins that simulate sexual climax? Why not turn our physical bodies into cocoons like in the Bruce Willis movie Surrogates, and seek maximum entertainment and pleasure for the mind? Great article.

That they're not men. Obviously.

Injecting something medicinal is not the same as injecting drugs.

And this is a medical question. For some men this improves quality of life, thought, job performance. I.e.: a medicine.

Though, yeah, it's I'm sure overprescribed. Men who don't actually need it but want it for some purely vain reason. That's wrong.

I think it is the manipulation of hormones that makes me so wary of it, it's the not the manipulation of, say, a bone, but hormones, and maybe this is all calling to mind the proximity of hormone manipulation in the trans issue.

I think you're comparing apples to oranges here.

I said Men age 40 or so should take TRT. Trt does not mean shooting a gram of test a week. TRT just means getting your free and total Test into therapeutic ranges (around 800).

Nowhere did i say that giving children or adolescent boys or teenagers hormone drugs, nor am I in favor of giving women drugs to turn them into tranny freaks. There's obviously a difference and the comparison is ludicrous. I'm not gonna dignify the comparison of men taking testosterone to women taking it.

There's a lot of peer reviewed studies and science that show having low T is more dangerous due to the Test to Estrogen balance for cancer, heart and prostate and other issues. Androgens do affect blood lipids and other health markers, but a large part of this is also based off of kidney and and blood pressure issues.

There are risks, and that's why you have a doctor monitor you.

So I stand by my original comments. Ive used steroids for specific physical goals, and felt the difference between super physiological doses compared to trt, compared to coming off and feeling like crap.

Ive come off before for about a month to get baseline blood work.... My wife(then girlfriend) told me to get back on and don't come off. Everything still worked, but the difference was noticable.

I think it's a personal medical decision that has lifelong implications and should be taken seriously.
