What A Godly Man Looks Like

“Some say there is a crisis of masculinity in the church. I agree. Godly masculinity is being threatened every time ‘effeminate’ or ‘feminine’ are used as criticism. Godly masculinity is diminished every time we buy into the hateful distortion of sin that equates strength with dominance and violence. Godly masculinity is twisted every time we deny a person’s role in marriage and the family based upon their gender [and I would add here, ‘sexual orientation’]. Godly masculinity is tarnished whenever we seek to justify inequity and subjugation through the language of ‘roles’ and ‘nature’.”
