Does Masculinity Matter?

June 4, 2015

For that matter, does masculinity even exist?

In an era of Bruce Jenner's sexual self-reinvention, same-sex adoptions, "gender studies," "transgendered" bathrooms, etc., does being a man have any meaning, objectively, morally, or culturally?

Does a child need a father and a mother or just two parents?

Is sexuality "fluid," elastic, subjective?

Of course, at FRC we answer yes to all but the last of these questions. We believe that God made man male and female (Genesis 1:27, 5:2), and that His creation is good.

Our friends at the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood provide an outstanding guide to what Scripture teaches about masculinity. Hint: Throw out any hostile stereotypes you might have (for example, that Christianity somehow affirms the right of men to be victimizing aggressors, predatory users of women, etc.) and see what the Bible says.

Men and women are different. Let's rejoice that this is now, and always will be, so.

will be, so.
