Boys Who Shave

9 Nov

Another timely message from Driscoll to guys who think that they’re men, but in actuality, are boys who can shave.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I wish I heard this sermon ten years ago.  But better late than never.  Spread the word.

    interesting, first time hearing Driscoll, not sure if he is my flavor per se… seems to have a very fundamental perspective and that is, you are or you are not (a man)… i do agree that we as a generation and proceeding generations spend way too much time in various stages of ‘limbo’, that is for sure, but the message seems incomplete without acknowledging various reasons of potential, ‘whys’? I think people rarely act counterproductive for the sake of being counterproductive, but there are various subconscious/unconscious reasons, and when acknowledged maybe freeing… just some thoughts, thx for intro to Driscoll big dwg! ttyl…

    Hey, what’s up Randy. Glad you found your way here. Sorry, but could you clarify when you said, “… the message seems incomplete without acknowledging various reasons of potential”? That went way over my head.

    If I understand the rest of what you said correctly, however, you’re saying that Driscoll shouldn’t simply tell boys to be men, but he should tell them why. If that is what you’re saying, then to that effect, I agree with you completely. I think that is what a good preacher should do – and I believe that’s what Driscoll does in the other 45 minutes of the sermon (this clip, although 23 minutes long, is only a portion of a much longer sermon).

    However, I believe that the overall content of what he said is not only correct, but absolutely necessary, nonetheless, for so many boys who have a tendency to foolishly abdicate their responsibility to others.

    For those redeemed by Christ on the cross, our desire should now be, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to do what God wants us to do and be what he wants us to be.

    In this context, I believe it was Driscoll’s aim to hold accountable these boys who only CLAIMED to want to do what God wanted them to do and be what God wanted them to be, but weren’t actually living it out.
