Here’s a news flash you won’t hear most preachers touch with a 10-foot pew: The button-down set that know when to sit, stand, and kneel in a Sunday service are exactly the ones who freak out the most about who Jesus makes friends with.

It was true when Jesus was shlepping this pebble 2000 years ago, and it’s still true today.

The people you’d see Jesus hanging out with looked more like they’d belong in the Cantina scene in Star Wars, or at a Burning Man festival, than pulling up a chair for Christmas Dinner at grandma’s house.

But that’s how Jesus rolls. He did it then, and he does it now.

Not only does he pick out the weird to shame the wise, and elevate the ‘foolishness’ of preaching to change the planet, but he wants to sit down with the outcast, badass, nogoodnik from the wrong zip code… and tell him to bring all his friends along with him.

If you read his word very carefully, you just might see something the modern church has been missing, and why we haven’t seen the results that Christians in other generations have seen.

Let’s dig in.

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
