Challies’ Disagrees with Piper about Christianity’s “Masculine Feel”

Fascinating, and I think helpful, additions to the discussion from Tim Challies. Challies writes:

John Piper sparked quite a storm with his biographical message on the “frank and manly” J. C. Ryle. One of his conclusion was that Christianity is meant to have a masculine feel to it… I find that I do not agree. For those of you who are given to over-reaction, just breathe—I am allowed to disagree and I’m sure Piper is just fine with people disagreeing. If you don’t have a category for charitable disagreement on secondary matters, you need to develop one! I still love the man, but want to offer an alternative to his masculine Christianity.

This also reminded me of the opposing view and conversation led my one of my favorite writers Douglas Wilson.
