From the man-bun to the mohawk: guys' hairstyles decoded.

What A Guy's Hairstyle Says About Him

Sometimes it feels like boys are from another planet entirely. Their texts don't make sense, their actions are a mystery and they say one thing and mean another thing entirely. In a world where 50 percent of the population is a mystery, there is one secret to understanding a boy a little better: his hair. Man buns, faux hawks, buzz cuts: each of these hairstyles gives us a little inside peek into what could possibly be going on in a guy's mind. Every hair style has it's pros and cons, it's up to you to decide which 'do is right for you. Here's what a guy's hairstyle says about him:

"The Manbun"

This new hair trend is sweeping the nation. It's most notable among 20-somethings who frequent breweries and hole-in-the-wall coffee shops. These guys are trendy, can probably introduce you to new music by bands you "probably haven't heard of" yet, and will definitely have an endless supply of hip sweaters and cardigans you can borrow.

"The Frat Star"

Slightly grown out and unruly, this haircut is usually paired with a pair of Chubbies shorts and an American flag tank. The guy rocking this haircut is many things, but above all, he's fun. He's probably ace at beer pong and knows all the words to "Wagon Wheel." Dating isn't really his "scene," but if you choose to get involved with this guy, you're in for a good time. Just keep in mind that no matter what he says after a couple of shots, he will never love you half as much as he loves America and Natty Lights.

"The Bad Boy"

This buzz-cut hairstyle highlights a boy's best assets ... his cheekbones, obviously. Pair this with some well-groomed facial hair and strong eyebrows, and you've got one devilishly handsome man. This boy may not be the kind to wife you up and come home with you for the holidays, but he's definitely the go-to guy for those days you feel like going to the dark side. He'll probably take you to seedy bars and give you a ride home on the back of his motorcycle ... and you'll love every second of it. He may lack luxurious locks to run your fingers through, but his "devil may care" attitude will be all you need to be putty in his hands.

"The Thor"

Long and flowing, this dude's hair will make any girl jealous. You aren't sure if it's him you're attracted to, or the beautiful long locks that remind you of the dirty romance novels you sometimes read on the down low. This dude obviously puts stock into his appearance, which is important, but make sure that's not all he cares about. It's no fun being the less pretty one in a relationship.

"The Bieber"

A popular hairstyle for boys still going through puberty, this skater boy hasn't quite come to terms with that fact that 2010 has come and gone. The boy who dons this look's main form of transportation is a skateboard of some sort, and he's often seen rocking a pair of skinny jeans and Etnies shoes. If you're a Sk8er girl looking for your Sk8er boy, this boy is the one for you. And hey, you can probably share jeans, which is always a plus.

"The Ronaldo"

Don't be fooled by this slicked-back look, often found on athletes or boys who wish they were one. This look seems easy and effortless, but this kind of messy almost-faux-hawk perfection actually results from tons of preparation and hair gel. This dude, like his haircut, is not all that he seems. Be prepared for 2 a.m. "U up?" texts, that is, if he ever gets around to texting you back at all. Emotional roller-coaster rides are a given with this haircut, so if you do decide to go for a ride, buckle your seat belt and be prepared to be left feeling dizzy.

"The Jon Snow"

This boy is the exact opposite of "The Ronaldo." Emotionally sensitive and sweet, this boy is the perfect date for those times you feel like cuddling on a couch and watching "The Notebook." He may not be full of surprises or keep you on your toes, but he's reliable and loyal, and will treat you like a princess. Some people say Jon Snow knows nothing, but I think we can all agree that he knows hair.

"The Weeknd"

Everything seems all fun and games at first. You hang out often, and it's like you can't feel your face when you're with him, but don't let yourself be fooled: he's not the type you can take home to mom, and the only time you'll ever hear from him is when he calls you at half past five.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
