4 Points On Churches, Pastors, and Willow Creek

I listened to a podcast from Christianity Today about the fall of Bill Hybels, founding pastor of Willow Creek, one of the largest and most influential churches in America. It’s a gut-wrenchingly sad affair, first for the name and cause of Jesus, then for the women he sinned against, his own wife and family, the... Continue Reading →

I Can’t Love You and Tell You You’re Not a Man

I can't love you well while lying to you. I can't love you well by lying about God to you. He made you and He's good and you're a wonderful creation of His. And He's made you a man. There's beauty in that, startling beauty in this reality that the crafter of the earth chose... Continue Reading →

You Won’t Get It With Feminism

Our culture does not encourage men to marry, have lots of children, and then lead those families in sacrificial love.  Because of that, our society is filled with men who are not pressured to control their sinful sexual impulses and instead enjoy romance and sex with one woman in faithful marriage for their entire lives....

60 Seconds On Men

To the Lost and Abused

You are not forgotten.  You are not irrelevant.   This world of sin and sinners is often a place where young girls are sexually abused.  Where little boys are ignored by their fathers or beaten by their fists.  Where the small or disadvantaged are trampled by the anger or selfishness of warped men with warped...

Re:  Wonder Woman

A culture that does not even have a coherent answer to what a woman is is not fit to give anyone a feminine icon.   Me:  "What is a woman?" America:  "A strong, independent human." Me:  "So can he be a woman?  Steve over there?" America:  "If that's what he identifies as." Me:  "So what... Continue Reading →

Redemptive Manhood

Because it imitates the Lord, Godly manhood is inherently redemptive.   It reclaims.  It protects.  It builds.  It spends itself and risks itself on others. It will, if you don't mind my saying so, carry a cross.  A Godly man will use himself for the good of others.  A fleshly man will use others for... Continue Reading →

60 Seconds On Men and Women

   You honor neither women nor their Maker by treating them as if they are identical to men.  Men and women are both made in the image of God, both reflect His beauty and glory, and (if believers in Jesus) are both co-heirs of eternal life.   But they are not identical.   A husband...
