This post is written for men -- young men, married men, and at the end, I make a plea to men who are church leaders.

Since Theopolis has started a conversation over the value of so-called "red pill" thinking for men, I thought I'd chip in something a little different here. I've read a number of red pill writers over the years and found them to be mixed bag, yet very profitable if read with discernment. Sure, there are dangers in reading the red pill guys, just as there is danger in reading Freud or Nietzsche. But there is also value. In this post, I am not really interested in critiquing all that is wrong with the red pill; that has been done elsewhere. Rather, I am interested in asking how we can derive benefit from what the red pill gets right and how we as Christians (and especially pastors) might build upon.

The good men over at It's Good to Be a Man have published a short note on mine of on men and women. You can read it here.

I’ve been in my share of ecclesiastical controversies over the years, so I am very reluctant to get involved in a controversy that does not – and need not – involve me. But I cannot help from making a few comments on the “Aimee Byrd vs. Genevan Commons” saga that is unfolding.
