I was having coffee with a friend the other morning. He is one of the smartest friends I have, but he is also very secular in his worldview approach. In the course of our conversation he told me that he was concerned with his own worldview. “There is no cohesive system of thought in secular thinking,” he said. “It’s all disjointed; it’s all a reaction to something else.” Of course, as a Christian, I totally agree with his assessment, but I was surprised (to say the least) at his admission.
With so much talk of gender and gender confusion it leads one to ask if there are any real marks or signifiers of a true man. The following are seven marks from scripture that describe the tone and character of what it means to be a true man.
Christians can disagree with one another and not lose fellowship. Christians should never let a conversation about gun violence divide the church. Just because a person thinks that we should have stricter gun laws does not make them a “baby killing liberal.” Similarly, just because someone thinks that the Second Amendment is an important American right does not make them an “uncompassionate redneck.” Thoughtful and good Christians are going to disagree on this issue, and there are good points to be made on either side.
