Hey guys, does it REALLY matter if churches embrace a ‘Massengill’ soft-focus nicer-than-Christ culture? You bet!
Actually, that culture was part of the reason key thinkers in Europe kicked Christianity to the curb in search of something more truly and faithfully masculine.
After all, how can a religion be trusted to tell eternal truths if they don’t even ‘get’ the basics about men and women right?
The problem wasn’t Christianity — plenty of Christian movements have retained a robust role for the masculine presence — but with the geldings in charge who neutered the church and chased the men away with their soft-focus vision of a lavender liturgy.
News flash: most men no likey joining a church that invites men to drop their huevos in a lockbox as the price of admission.
And when you kick Christianity to the curb, Christ goes with it. As Europe learned the hard way, the replacement theologies that are embraced can take you some very dark places indeed:
If there was one philosopher the fascists of the mid-20th century loved, it was Nietzsche. He was so adored by them that Hitler gifted Mussolini the complete works of Nietzsche for his birthday. The Nietzschean ideals of anti-egalitarianism, the Superman, and the will to power inspired them to act, and millions died because of it. They adored his ideas, and anointed him as the prophet of their ideology.

Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
