One of the travesties of modern feel-good Christianity—and a travesty which alienates a lot of non-Christian men—is the fact that Jesus Christ is routinely portrayed as an individual who is meek, mild, and submissive. But nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that Jesus Christ was a tough, red-pilled individual, and his strength and grit manifested itself in several ways that masculine men can learn from and appreciate. Physical Grit Jesus knew how to work with his hands. First, there is the physical form of fortitude, which is a type of toughness that Jesus clearly demonstrated. After all, there are good grounds to believe that Jesus was a builder of some type Matthew

Clay Worrell Mar 26, Recently, I was honored to take part in the Expositors Collective , a seminar designed to train and mentor young preachers in the skill of expository Bible teaching. My dear friend Mike Neglia taught a session on Christ-centered preaching, which he opened by highlighting the difference between a moralistic sermon and a Christ-centered sermon by first teaching a sample moralistic sermonette on Matthew What follows is the transcript of my minute Christ-centered sermon; perhaps it will be helpful for our Bible-teaching readers.
Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor. For she has done a beautiful thing to me.
For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her. And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him. The Text I would like to invite you to jump in to this story with me.
Share on Facebook This is a throwback to a previous post. The idea is to look for love in the right places. This does not mean that we should serve because we might find love. God is not ultimately honored with that kind of self-serving service. Get involved in a community like that, serve each other, and look for God to open doors for dating. The trajectory of all truly Christian romance ought to be marriage, so it should not surprise us that our dreams and expectations, our hearts, race out ahead of everything else.
The holidays are upon us and today we are sharing Ways to Have a CHRIST-Centered Christmas. Because HE is the reason for the season and His presence is more important than the presents.
In addition to these published accounts, we have continued to receive emails and personal contact from other young women stating that this also happened to them or that they personally witnessed it taking place. For those who may not be aware of this ongoing problem, the pattern of behavior is more or less similar in each circumstance: Often the girl has a specific personal or family need, or she has a difficult living situation at home.
Bill invites the young lady to work at HQ, usually without any details concerning the job assignment. While working at HQ often in menial tasks, because many of the younger girls have no practical job skills , the young lady is subjected to awkward emotional advances from Bill, including extremely personal questions about a wide variety of subjects. In most cases, it takes years before she realizes that what happened to her was highly inappropriate and is classified as sexual harassment or abuse.
In the cases in which a young lady has spoken out usually anonymously about her emotional and sexual harassment, it is denied by Bill, who then goes to great lengths to discover who the person is and to manipulate them into silence, either by guilt trips, shame, or by reminding them of financial expenses paid money personally given to them or their family. We at Recovering Grace have verified this through first-hand reports and copied emails from these young women and their families.
With increased public awareness and pressure, we have hoped that he would self-correct and make necessary changes to his hiring and workplace behavioral policies.

Tylers book, Jesus Christ: Self-Denial or Self-Esteem, they may possibly think they were reading a book about the life of Christ instead of a refutation of the self-esteem movement. Tyler takes a different method thats feature of a few of the other books on critiquing self-esteem. H-e doesnt completely claim as Paul Vitz does that the self-esteem position is faulty from a humanistic psychological approach. Or does he try to contrast each heretical thought and compare it to an exhaustive search at scripture references.
Rather, h-e analyzes the notion of selfism towards the methods and life of Jesus Christ.

The Myth That Jesus Christ Was Not Masculine
Their relationship is over, resulting in emotional and maybe physical broken ties that will take a long time to get over. One is left wondering how many times this young lady and young man will give herself away—emotionally and physically—before she finally walks down the aisle to marry an altogether different man? Built on Christ, relationship pieces fit. I believe that even within the church our thinking has become poisoned in this arena. Dating has become such a major part of our culture that very few Christians even stop to consider what dating really entails.
As such, many homes focus on that magical age when a teen is finally able to go out on a date.
Rather than engaging in dating relationships prior to marriage, they recommend being in dating friendships. They assert that the former blurs the line between the neighbor and marriage categories, offering the benefits of marriage without its intrinsic commitment. Dating relationships offer a false sense of security, they evince.

UPDATE (10/16/): Tammy Ward and Hope Haven Events has released an official statement regarding this KUTV 2News report. See statement in the comments section.. On Wednesday, September 21st KUTV 2News posted the following report regarding Christ-centered energy healing, “The business behind Christ-centered energy healing”.
Applying God’s Word to the topic of dating, finding a spouse, and getting married. You’ve done it, you’re doing it, you’d like to do it, or you need to teach somebody else how to do it. In our society, dating has become something of an obsession. It is expected to be a universal phenomenon. It’s just something you do if you’re single and of age and that age is quickly dropping in America. It is considered the natural precursor to marriage, and is generally considered something to be desired, whatever form it might take.
It’s also big business.

Pure Intimacy: God’s Design for Sex
A 3rd-century Greek papyrus of the Gospel of Luke Canonical gospels The four canonical gospels Matthew , Mark , Luke , and John are the foremost sources for the life and message of Jesus. Most scholars conclude that these are written much later and are less reliable accounts than the canonical gospels. The authors of the gospels are all anonymous, attributed by tradition to the four evangelists , each with close ties to Jesus:
Christ-Centered Therapy thoroughly integrates psychology and practical theology. A book written by experts from both fields, it utilizes the contributions of science in an uncompromisingly biblical framework.5/5(1).
Self-awareness was given to us because with the knowledge of Good and Evil, we now became aware that we had a choice between doing what is good and doing what is evil. The choice to serve God or serve ourselves. We are all born self-centered and selfish. Each of us has only one body and one brain and we barely have enough capacity, ability and love for what affects us directly.
We are captives to ourselves. None of us really understands what makes another person tick. We don’t know anyone else’s thought process and we cannot feel anyone else’s feelings, but we know how we feel, what we think and what we want. To us, we are the most important thing in the world. We are the center of our own universe.
No one else aside from our mothers is going to follow us around and care for our needs, so we fend for ourselves every step of our lives. Looking after our self is all we know. When things don’t go our way, we become frustrated and always seek to manipulate situations back to us. We have learned that we must take our piece of the pie or we will be empty handed.
