“When you take manhood and try to look at manhood in isolation, you’ve already got a problem. The God who created us created us male and female….you cannot understand maleness apart from femaleness… you have to understand what it means to be a man, first of all, by what it means to be made in the image of God.”
(Protestia) Voddie Bauchaum, dean of theology at Zambia’s African Christian University and author of the recent book Fault Lines joined Ben Shapiro for his Sunday special to discuss social justice and what it means to be a man, allowing the former pastor to witness to the Daily Wire host. The two kick off by talking about social justice and the redistribution of wealth, with Voddie pointing to the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25 as the reason it’s so unbiblical.
One of them has done better with his talents than the others. And he doesn’t take from the one who did poorly or take from the one who did well and give to the one who did poorly. He actually takes away from the one who did poorly and gives it to the one who does well. I refer to that parable because it really flies in the face of the idea that the Christian attitude ought to be equal outcomes. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Christian attitude is justice writ large, right? God’s justice, the righteous and equal application of God’s law, but not equal outcomes.
