John Piper swats the hornets nest again. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jesuscr...-what-he-said/
Hyper-masculinity and the role of men in the Church is a very hot topic.
Obviously, I feel strongly about the issue and have passionately expressed it here on NN. The 21st Century Church has a certain wussification factor that is hurting us and our ability to reach men (and women & children). But I refuse to endorse the extreme nature of Piper and Driscoll's remarks. It's heresy by overemphasis and a total overcorrection and overstatement of the problem. By that same token, I think it is irresponsible to be be dismissive and neglect the issue altogether.
A lot of discussion around the greek word for masculine in the N.T. which might be interesting to entertain. Perhaps the moderators will shift this over to theology, or maybe another thread can be started.
