Jesus - Not a Wimp!

An interesting article about a new book "Why Men Hate Going to Church" by David Murrow.

Read the article here

My favorite blurb:
...churches need to "recover the masculinity of Jesus." The author says Jesus as described in scripture was and is "a very bold, aggressive character, but we [in the modern Church] have turned him into a wimp -- and men don't follow wimps. They follow leaders."



I once knew an ELCA missionary in Ghana...about 15 years ago...good guy. I can tell you this: Nobody in Africa has Jesus figured for a "whimp". It just takes too much nerve to follow him here.

The recent issue of "Issues Etc." print newsletter has a nifty article about the feminization or demasculinization of the church by Todd Wilken. Quite good, I think.
