Meaningful Masculine Members believe in a biblical worldview where God’s sovereign will is absolute and timeless. The following statements affirm our positions on biblical doctrine, ecclesiastical authority, household position, and cultural influence.
Basic Biblical Statements of Faith
This includes what we believe about God & His attributes; What we believe about Jesus Christ & His divinity; What we believe about the Holy Spirit; Salvation; and the authority of Scripture.
The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
The mission of The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is to set forth the teachings of the Bible about the complementary differences between men and women, created equally in the image of God, because these teachings are essential for obedience to Scripture and for the health of the family and the church.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and femal he created them. And God blessed them.”Genesis 1:27-28 ESV
The Danver’s Statement
We believe and support the Danver’s statement along with all of its affirmations and condemnations.
The Statement of Social Justice
We affirm the unchanging moral laws established by God as the creator of all things and “breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) that moral law into the scriptures, which are used teaching, training, and correcting. It is from the word of God that society takes its morality and humanity into society. Those principles and values do not evolve or change, over time, as society devolves into secular normality.
“Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever.”Hebrews 13:8 ESV
The Nashville Statement
Likewise, we embrace the affirmations and condemnations of the Nashville Statement.
Ecclesiology — The area of Christian theology focused on the Church, derived from the Greek word for “church,” ekklēsia – Douglas Mangum, The Lexham Glossary of Theology (Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2014).
This organization does not ascribe to any specific religious denomination. We affirm the trinity, the Nicene Creed, and a few other historically orthodox belief systems. Each member may belong to his own Church denomination or faith-based community. We are a large-tent Christian organization for males of all walks of life, geographical location, socio-economic background, or national origin. Our ecclesiological foundation can be found in the first epistle to the Corinthians:
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), 1 Co 12:12–27.
Politics & Religion
Although we do not claim any particular party or endorse specific candidates, it is the position of this organization that all Christian men should be active in the political landscape in one form or the other; whether that be local, state, or federal. It is incumbent upon men of strong character and devout faith to work within the parameters of organized politics to persuade the culture and influence biblical legislation.
Meaningful Masculinity means standing for what is right and true and standing against erroneous doctrine, false teachers, fallacious prophets, and evil persons who come against the Lord in writings, rhetoric, or deed.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Eph 6:12.
