I present this week’s roundup, wherein I exact revenge on all those English professors who wanted to inject their warped vision of “gender as a social construct” into EVERYTHING. Next week will be more theological in theme. Enjoy.
- Dustin Benge proclaims the value of male friendships.
- Owen Strachan
- considers the sometimes destructive nature of male competitiveness.
- gave a series outlining a theology of ambition, or how to avoid the errors of hyperspiritualized passivity and functional deism.
- tells the pathetic tale of the man who camped out on the roof of a Baltimore bar for his Ravens, and what it says about masculinity.
- Reflects on what the next Indiana Jones movie means for masculinity in our culture. [I think Indy could totally take that nancy-boy Jason Bourne in a battle to the death. -RR]
- Is alarmed at how much men in this culture are increasingly obsessed with their appearance, and recommends The Adonis Complex as a good read.
- Brent Thomas reports on the sad case of Broadway Baptist Church (BGCT) in Ft. Worth and a fight over a picture directory that is really not a fight about a picture directory.
- Reid Monaghan paints a picture of masculine leadership in the trenches.
- Corey Reynolds wonders whether there is a separate calling to ministry for wives.
- Matt Svoboda posts Dr. Randy Stinson‘s answer to how men and women can be equal and still have different roles.
- Bryant Owens discusses Divorce at length.
- Denny Burk conveys Huckabee‘s affirmation of the BFM 2000 statement on complementarianism.
- Dr. Mohler
Another very, very good source for blogging on gender roles is the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood‘s Gender Blog. Some highlights:
- David Kotter reports on the Church of England ordaining more women than men in 2006.
- Jeff Robinson doesn’t seem to grasp that separation of Church and State by definition does not exist in a state church, but otherwise accurately tells the chilling tale of the Finnish pastor who has been convicted in court for refusing to recognize the ordination of women.
- Mike Seaver warns of
WMU Beth MooreSemigaliterianism as a stealthy enemy in our churches.
- Dr. Russell Moore wonders whether the Egalitarians are winning.
- Jeff Robinson outlines a profile of biblical masculinity, backlit by the Minneapolis Bridge Collapse.
- Prof. Mary Kassian tells us how complementarianism works on a practical level in her marriage.
- Denny Burk shows how the Massachusetts gay marriage can of worms is now causing trouble for unsuspecting states through the backdoor of divorce.
- Courtney Tarter gives us the shocking tale of transgender rights run amok in NYC homeless shelters to the point of trampling those of homeless women.
If you liked this installment of Gender Blogging, we should have another one next month. In the meantime, there is much, much more to read and digest at http://www.cbmw.org
