OUR JESUS IS TOO WEAK Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   
Where did the tough Jesus of the Bible go?  When I listen to sermons, I rarely, if ever, hear about this radical young man who caused more trouble than anyone else in history.  I hear about a Jesus who loved everyone, who fought for women's rights, but I don't hear about a Jesus who said intolerable things.

JESUS--THAT HOLY SISSY Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   

I'm afraid feminism has so affected our churches in America that we now think of Jesus as girly.  This sweet frail man pats children on the head and argues for women's rights.  He's always nurturing, warming, and ready for a hug.

 

Jesus was a carpenter and probably had more in common with a truck driver than a mother or a pale academic who likes Star Trek.  Jesus was a tough guy and spent most of his time with men.  He brandished a whip, rebuked unbelief, called certain people whitewashed tombs, and threw over tables.  And he will one day cast all of his enemies in hell.

 

He wasn't a wimp who could blend with the feminine Fab Four.  He was a man—a manly man.

DISTORTING THE LINES BETWEEN THE SEXES Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   

It's easy to find people whose hair and clothes make you stop for a double take to ponder whether they're a man or a woman.  For this we can probably thank the feminist movement.  After all, it has long since encouraged us to throw off those oppressive stereotypical roles.  In the name of freedom, they've cultivated chaos.

 

But chaos need not be so.  Believers can live differently than the world.  When the rest of society blurs the lines between male and female, we can delight in the way God made us.

 

Let our women be women and our men be men.  Our differences go beyond the physical.  So, let's reject the foolish idea that says we're pretty much the same, never mind those obvious anatomical differences. 

 
SEXUALITY AS UNDERSTOOD IN GALATIANS 3:28 Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   

Few things are as interesting to people today as sex and sexuality.  Even in Christian circles, this topic is relevant and captivating.  Like most controversies that involve Christians, Scripture is often used to support one or more sides of a given debate.  Galatians 3:28 is no stranger to such debate and has often been tossed around like a tennis ball in a clothes dryer.  This verse has been abused by many individuals and groups, especially in the wake of the feminist and gay rights movement.  It reads, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male not female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (NASV).  For similar verses, see 1 Cor 12:13 and Col 3:11.
