the distinction of a man

Posted: February 22, 2008 in bible, crossings, small group

You may or may not have seen this recently popular You Tube video with the Baptist church preacher talking about “what makes a man…not a male.” If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth the next 5 minutes of your life.

In the Old Testament – only in the King James Version – the Bible signifies that which designates the “true men” from all others. Here it is:

1 Kings 16:11 (KJV)
11And it came to pass, when he (David) began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.

Well, think what you will. Maybe it’s vulgar. Maybe it’s euphamistic translation. But it only appears in the KJV and only on 6 occasions.

Regardless, you’ll be glad to know that my small group from church has talked it over and we now proudly proclaim our stance….and we shall be known as true men.
