The Bible on Men

According to the Bible, men were created by God on the 6th day of Creation.[1]

Old Testament

The relationship between God and Men is tumultuous from the start. The first three men written of in Genesis are Adam, cast from Eden after eating fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil [2] and Cain and his brother and victim Abel, the elder sons of Adam and Eve. [3].(Men were punished with an Adams Apple when the forbidden fruit lodged in his throat)

New Testament

The New Testament states that man "is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man."[4]

Masculine identity

Dr. Joseph Nicolosi wrote:

Increasingly today, we are abandoning support of our boys’ formation of masculine identity; particularly the support needed from the parents. For the boy, the father is most significant in the identification process. If he is warm and receptive and inviting, the boy will disidentify with mother and bond with father to fulfill his natural masculine strings. If the father is cold, detached, harsh, or even simply disinterested, the boy may reach out, but eventually will feel hurt and discouraged and surrender his natural masculine strivings, returning to his mother. [5]
