Gillette and Toxic Masculinity

Jan 24, 2019 by Authentic Manhood
Don’t think for a moment that the controversial Gillette commercial is attempting to redefine masculinity. I doubt that Proctor & Gamble executives met to discuss their part in helping guide the cultural attempt to construct its perfect man. As with most corporations, market share, growth, and bottom lines dictate high-level conversations. But maybe with threats like Dollar Shave Club and more bearded millennials walking around, they thought re-positioning themselves in the market by... read more
Exposing the Empty Promises of Work

Exposing the Empty Promises of Work

Jan 12, 2019 by Authentic Manhood
Scripture is very clear; men were created to work. Work provides direction and allows us to use our talents and abilities to express ourselves and impact the world. From day one in Eden to day one hundred million in eternity, there has been and always will be work for us to do as image-bearers of God and co-creators with Him. Ultimately, to be made in the image of God is to be made in the image of a worker.... read more

Ancient Paths for Seeking God — Part 3

Nov 30, 2018 by Authentic Manhood
This is the third in a series of four posts on ancient ways Christians have sought God (read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 4). The path described in this post turns the focus to our lives. Of course, we need to read the Scriptures to grasp how God works, but this path invites us to read our lives to see how He is working there. We often think of God's work as dramatic and miraculous, and sometimes it is. His quick work here is hard to miss, but His slow work often is. The subtle whispers, the quiet... read more
