On the Albert Mohler program yesterday, he addressed the issue of biblical manhood.  He said that one of the biggest challenges facing the church today is the eclipse and confusion of manhood.  The show walks through what callers would say to young Christian men

What would you say?

Thanks Mike for posting this. I just listened to it. He, and everyone that commented, had some challenging things to say.

I think other than being a servant leader, playing less video games, and learning self-control, Christian men should eagerly pursue discipline.

More specifically we should practice our faith and trust in God’s sovereignty. Granted these things come from God, but do we pursue and ask for solid faith? Do we ask that we should trust Him in the toughest of times? If we look at some of the men in the bible, we see they had faith, serious faith. A great example is Daniel. I think if men pursued faith (and practiced it, the disciplines that build faith), it would solve much of the passivity we see. And we would more clearly be able to direct our brothers and sisters towards the cross.

What do you think?

I just downloaded it and will listen, but I agree that it is one of the biggest problems facing our culture. But I still have hope. It seems that the church has been responding with Promise Keepers in the 90s, CBMW, John Eldrege’s stuff in other circles, lots of men’s minsitries in churches, and more. It seems that the church is addressing the issue, so I have hope. However, the church’s voice is becoming less influential in society. Pop culture continues to applaud strong independent women and passive men without convictions, so we still have a long way to go. I look forward to listening to this. Thanks.
