Senior Thesis Title:  The Loss of Biblical Manhood

Senior Thesis Statement: Men today no longer live according to Biblical Manhood because they have lost the responsibility and respect which Biblical Manhood entails. The solution to this problem is the education of youth to live out Biblical Manhood. 

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: My argument is that men today do not have the responsibility fleshed out for men in the Bible, nor do they have the respect for themselves or others that is required for men in the Bible. This is disastrous to our society today as families are split and men treat others horribly. The broad solution to this problem is that we need to educate young boys in Biblical Masculinity and train them so that they apply this teaching to their later lives.
