The cultural shift stripping the masculinity from the Western Church can be traced right back to one pivotal moment in history.
Once we understand what went wrong, we can move forward with a solution.
The most popular preacher in the thirteenth century deliberately introduced an effeminate streak into the church culture.
And he did it because of a brain fart that made him unable to understand a metaphor.
When God called Christ the groom, and the Church his bride, he was describing the relationship of Christ as protector, provider, priest and king for the Church. He was NOT calling for the men to lop off their wedding tackle and act as some kind of goofy spiritual wetnurses.
Ideas have consequences. And it’s time leaders in the Church start purging the toxic ones.

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.
