Mature Manhood Starts with Maleness

There is a crisis of biblical manhood in our day. Everywhere you look, there seems to be a gutting of mature manhood and the way men have been called to live as followers of Christ. John Piper says “The essence of Biblical Manhood is the benevolent responsibility to lead, provide for and protect women in ways that are appropriate to a man’s differing relationships.” Our prayer is that the talks from this conference would be used to strengthen men, help men thrive spiritually, help men kill sin, reform broken men by the power of Jesus Christ, train husbands, train fathers, and raise young men up to be godly, gentle, strong, and holy, having 1 Timothy 3 character whether an elder or not.

This presentation was given by Dr. Tom Nettles on June 10, 2019 at the “Mature Manhood in an Immature Age” 2019 Founders SBC event in Birmingham, Alabama.
