Mr. Ueno's daughter died Saturday after a year and a half suffering cancer. He called me from Chiba Prefecture, and I was once again reminded about why I admire this good Christian man. I'm dedicating this thread to him. Young people nowadays like the idiom "man up." We see this statement on the BB sometimes. But what does that really mean? We'll discuss Christian manhood, and I'll give my philosophy of what it means to be a good Christian man in three parts. Ground rule: let's not discuss the manhood of anyone on the BB, please. That would easily degenerate into statements like "BB Denizen" is not much of a man," or, "I did such and such and 'BB Denizen' didn't take it like a man." However, discussing positively the manhood of our non-BB role models would be a good thing.
