Hargraves: Is “Manly Dominance” Biblical?: A Response to Shalom Pearl Brand

In her post Shalom speaks to the importance of training our children to be good husbands and wives. That is well, fine, and good, but it is when she, in true Pearl fashion, goes on to explain exactly what that would look like that I quickly became disturbed at the extremely unBiblical nature of what she was claiming to be “Biblical” manhood (and, in a … Continue reading Hargraves: Is “Manly Dominance” Biblical?: A Response to Shalom Pearl Brand

AV: Egalitarianism’s dirty secret: the sexual objectification of women

God is not an egalitarian. That is not a controversial statement. Neither is saying that the strong should protect the weak.

What average man or woman today could answer a little boy’s question: Daddy, what does it mean to grow up and be a man and not a woman? Or a … Continue reading Piper: Do Men Owe Women a Special Kind of Care?

Hurricane Harvey: Cajun Navy to the Rescue

We’ve read about it again and again, honorable, self-sacrificing men hearing the call, who come in a time of need. The Cajun Navy is getting it’s well deserved press and we’d like to highlight them as well, especially since as one facebook user pointed out, this is the very thing feminists would have us consider to be toxic masculinity.

Unbroken Faith Ministries: Dead Women in Combat: Does Anyone Care? A Call for Americans to Cherish the Weaker Sex

Wesley Strackbein In light of the outrageous view espoused by Gov. Bush, Sen. Rubio, and Gov. Christie at last’s Saturday’s debate – supporting women signing up for Selective Service – we would do well to understand that the Bible teaches that men, not women, are to go to war.

A Call for Americans to Cherish the Weaker Sex

Wilson: Courtship and Rape Culture

Let us begin with what I believe to be a common sense observation, which is that when everything is rape then nothing is. We live in a time when the truth of much of this is playing out in real time.
