Masculinity & Femininity Everywhere Else

This Sunday we finish our series on Biblical Gender Roles. We have seen how gender roles apply in homes and churches, but to keep ourselves consistent with what scripture teaches, we must extend its application to the civil sphere and beyond as well. God has designed the world a certain way. Gods word, logic, reasoning, mathematics, etc. are all used in God’s world. They help guide us and are used in every walk of life. Thus, is it no different for gender roles, they apply in all scenarios. Thanks for listening and enjoy!

Analysis of First Wave Feminism

Bryce has abandoned me to the pit. I will rouse myself and hold fast to the LORD in this trial, he will help me to fly SOLO this week on the For The King podcast. We have been slowly walking through a biblical worldview when considering gender roles. This week I use Zach Garris’ book as a resource to quote a few feminist from he 1st wave in the 1850’s. They knew what the bible CLEARLY taught about biblical gender roles and by golly did they hate it. I labor to expose you all to what they said about biblical principles and analyze what has caused them to say such things. Lets not let the feminist understand what the bible clearly teaches about the patriarchy be more robust and accurate than ours… *ahem* egalitarians/complementarians *ahem*.

Masculinity & Femininity in the Church

This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms three weeks ago, to the home, and now to the church. The church is the bulwark against an evil and God-hating world. The church has been tasked with the proclamation of the gospel through public gathering and worship of God and sending families out into our communities to win the nations to Christ. For the organization to run well God has instituted certain members of his church to be leaders and servants of the church known as elders and deacons. This week bryce and I walk through how masculinity and femininity play out in the church. Certain men being the leaders and the rest of the men and women to follow them who ultimately follow Christ. Thanks for tuning in! I hope you are continuing to enjoy the series that is so needed in our culture.

Masculinity & Femininity in the Home

This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms two weeks ago, to the home. The home is the foundational unit for all of society. For the church, businesses, civil government, all of society. So, we plant our anchor in the home where men and women have specific roles they play out, without which all of society will collapse. Tune in this week to see what God’s word has to tell us about how men and women act in a home.

Defining Biblical Masculinity & Femininity

This week on the Sunday Series, Bryce and I begin a new series on gender roles as defined by the creation order in the bible. Gender is thought to be a social construct that changes with society/culture. Biblically we know that our gender, and the gender roles inherent in each gender, are defined by God alone and not mankind. Gender does not change and Gender roles do not change. God has told us what these things are and how we ought to think about them. The human mind is spectacular but not spectacular enough to undo the things God has already put into us. The weeks following, Bryce and I will continue to walk through biblical gender roles and how Christians ought to think about them based on various passages in the bible. Thanks so much for listening, we hope it glorifies God and edifies you!

The Object in Objectivity

Recently, Bryce and I walked through why the theory of relativity, not Einstein’s theory ;), is a foolish and contradictory worldview to hold. This week Bryce and I press the issue further with a short talk objectivity and why it is precious for the Christian to cling to. One of Christianity’s most prevalent form of relativism is emotionalism in the Church. Bryce and I use emotionalism as a case study for relativism in the church. Enjoy and thanks for listening!

The Myth Of Relativism

“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God’s truth is attacked and yet would remain silent”
― John Calvin


“There are no facts, only interpretations.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche


So many people think that the buck stops with them when it comes to truth and reality. An often refrain in our society is, “This is my truth”, which tells us a lot of what our postmodern society thinks about truth. Something may very well be true to you and you may very well believe it but that does not mean that is is true. Truth is something external to us. The scriptures paint a clear picture that truth is objective and external to human experience or interpretation. An author always has an intent in something that they do because the intent is what drives the action itself. There is a true reality to all things and we know that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Join Bryce and I this week as we display what God has told us about what truth is and interact with our cultures claim of truth being relative.

Society’s Bane: Homosexuality

This week, my guest (Bryce) and I dive into the second part of a two part series concerning effeminacy in men. The first part was geared more towards soft, weak, effeminate men in our society and that behavior being condemned in scripture. This week we dive into effeminacy in its fruition, namely homosexuality. This sin has been welcomed and invited in our evangelical Christian circles in America. The church has largely capitulated on this issue and terms such as “gay Christian” are now commonplace even in “reformed” circles. The scriptures are extremely clear on the topic although our culture would war against it. Christians cannot serve two masters. Thanks for listening!

Effeminate Men

One sin that has flown under the radar for a considerable amount of time in our society is the sin of effeminacy in men. Today Bryce and I make a biblical case on why this is indeed a sin for a man to be effeminate and what effeminacy can look like in society. We walk through practical steps to overcome such sinfulness and how to be watchful against it in our own lives as men.
