Counterfeit Masculinity

March 12, 2014

“As someone put it, my path to counterfeit masculinity began on the ball field, shifted to the bedroom, and moved into the boardroom. Meanwhile, my marriage was crumbling.”

“Until a man’s movement toward others reveals God’s movement toward him, until a man remembers that he bears God’s image and moves to reveal God’s character to others, that man will pursue counterfeit masculinity with the fierce loyalty of an addict, whether through displayed talent, pleasurable lust, or recognized success.”

Question for Reflection:

What version of “counterfeit masculinity” are you as a man (or the men in your life as a woman) most susceptible to pursuing (e.g. income, success, sex appeal, talent, abilities)?
