Our western culture has grossly assaulted true biblical masculinity, neutered it….castrated it! Telling men to be soft, don’t say anything, don’t cause any trouble, don’t rock the boat, don’t stand up for yourself, and by all means, don’t ever offend anyone. To be more passive, gentle, compassionate, caring, merciful, and domesticated. In a word, to be more feminine.

Do these statements resonate with something you may have heard over the years?

One major problem with letting the world tell us, as Christ followers, who we are to be as men is that the world is dead wrong. True masculinity is strong, aggressive, bold, and at times dangerous.

The world likes to isolate situations where masculinity has gone awry and done much harm. The Columbine massacre and, more recently, terrorist attacks are two examples of masculinity that has given into evil. The world says that since masculine strength is responsible for much of what is wrong with the world, that all masculinity must be bad. The world Leaves out the fact that true masculine strength, when used for good, is also responsible for much of what is good in the world.

It cost nearly 2 million men’s lives in World War II to defeat a tyrant named Adolf Hitler. Today, modern day terrorists are being defeated by brave men and women. Men who are fighting back the evil in this world that seeks to kill, rob, and destroy our freedoms and liberties.
Evil prospers when good men do nothing!

Do you ever wonder what God intended when he created you as a man?

Like Neo in the Matrix, does this question haunt you? Is there more out there? More strength? More life? More freedom? More depth? More wholeness? More meaning? More relationally?
