banner_logo-copy.gifLast night I was watching a special on Force Protection and the use of their combat vehicles in Iraq and around the world in the war on terror. While watching the show ABC advertised an upcoming special on something called GodMen. GodMen is a conference that says they do not serve the “God of Sunday School and sweet worship songs, but the God of fire, creation and awe.” They realize the feminine state of the Christian church right now in America (most surveys say that the Christian church in America is 60% women) and want to set it right. They worship Jesus “clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength” (Revelation 1:13-16). This movement seems to have had a large impact already, the conference has been highlighted on Nightline, Good Morning America, BBC, and more. Here is what they say about themselves:
The GodMen event is:
– More powerful, raw, and real than any other men’s event you know.
– A place to explore issues like fear, isolation, numbness, aimlessness, pornography, passivity and more.
– An opportunity to discuss sensitive subjects without using sugar coated or safe church language.
-Speakers who speak honestly about their struggles through short messages.
– Hosted by comedian, actor and author Brad Stine. Other speakers include Paul Coughlin (author of No More Christian Nice Guy), Dave Bunker, Illusionist Ken Sands and more, plus the GodMen Band.
-A place to ask questions and receive honest answers.
– A chance to celebrate the masculine spirit.
