In his book, Fathered By God, John Eldredge talks about the six stages of the masculine journey: Boyhood, Cowboy, Warrior, Lover, King and the Sage.
Within today’s podcast you’ll hear some references to this book. By the way, if you have never heard or read this book, I highly recommend it. Especially if you are a father raising sons.
This podcast is part two of a series titled, “The Sexual Revolution”. It’s a series that I taught at Gateway Seminary. The students just finished their lectures on fatherhood and masculinity and now the class is transitioning into the subject of healthy sexuality.
Today we ask the question,
How Did America Get Here? – Legalizing “Same-Sex” Marriage.
We didn’t get to this point in history over night did we? Nope, so to answer this question we must go back in America’s history a bit – back to the the “roaring 20’s” as a matter of fact.
We talk about a lot of different events fairly quickly during this lesson, so you may want to grab a notebook or journal to make some notes for further study.
In today’s podcast, We’ll discuss three things:
- How men get stuck between the Cowboy and Warrior stage of masculinity.
- A Brief Timeline of Today’s Sexual Revolution.
- How the birth control pill changed everything.
