Pyromaniacs: Grow up. Be a Man

Biblical Manhood

Great post on Biblical manhood on Pyromaniacs. I especially liked this line:

I keep hearing about churches who (in order to appeal to ostensibly "masculine" instincts) have moved their men's fellowship to the pub, where they discuss theology as a hobby and share their views on life as Christian men over beer and cigars.

Let me point out that there's nothing particularly manly about that. It's still a private hen party, but you've just substituted beer and cigars in place of tea and crumpets.

Simply great! Biblical manhood is about following Christ, holding fast to the truth. It is not trying to act like what the world considers manly to appeal to the unregenerate.
