This is a discussion about the Orthodox Christian perspective on masculinity with Jay Dyer. We explored the significance of the Genesis account, societal shifts including the Catholic Church’s decision to bless homosexual unions, and the Christian perspective on manhood. The conversation also covered the Orthodox Church’s perspective on human nature and death, the theological interpretation of the Bible, the concept of fundamentalism, and the Orthodox view of grace. They also discussed Paul Evdokiavs’s book, “The Sacrament of Love,” feminism, the significance of marriage, the concept of suffering, the importance of truth and strong masculine discussion, and the impacts of internet and city life on social interactions and human relationships.
