Recovering Male Spirituality
This month's newsletter article tackles one of the most pertinent issues in the church today: where are all the men?
The great classic by George Guilder, Men and Marriage, presents a strong case that there are different characteristics and proclivities that distinguish men and women. Society becomes confused because not every man and woman fits the pattern of these predominant characteristics ... Men and women tend to enjoy different kinds of experiences. For example, men are more likely to enjoy action adventure movies than women. Women are more likely to enjoy a "chick flick" than men. Scientists today even find differences on the level of brain function and biology, and I would argue that there are also soul differences.
Biblical spirituality is not a crutch for our weakness or cowardliness, as atheists assert. Rather it is about the anointing that makes us bold conquerors and people of great purpose who seek to extend the Kingdom and see the redemption of the world.
There's plenty of room for you to add your comments, here or on the article itself as some have already done.
