Bespoke Epistles.

In Straining out gnats I noted that the CBMW’s argument for reinterpreting 1 Tim 2:12 is so weak, even people who prefer their interpretation avoid trying to defend their argument. But there are other ways to create wholly new meanings … Continue reading

Man up and share your feelings.

I mentioned UNCOMMEN in Hair Shirts and Chest Thumping last week. One of their recent blog posts is Her Needs Above Yours, which claims that God orders husbands to follow pop psychology and become “emotionally available” to their wives: …God … Continue reading

Straining out gnats.

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. –1 Tim 2:12, KJV While researching for yesterday’s post I came across a complementarian controversy regarding the NIV translation of … Continue reading

Hair shirts and chest thumping.

Conservative Christians are terrified. They are terrified of offending women, especially women in feminist rebellion. This creates a problem, because conservative Christians still want to condemn the outcome of feminism. The question is, how to condemn the outcome of feminism … Continue reading

So common no one notices.

Several commenters have noted that their pastor doesn’t give anti-father sermons on Father’s Day*. I don’t doubt this, as the church I attend doesn’t do this either. But the anti-father sermon on a day reserved to honor fathers is just … Continue reading

Don’t refer to God as the Father, call him a “Best Friend”.

In A radical Father’s Day proposal I introduced Honor Your Father Today, a group that is proposing that Christians honor their fathers on Father’s Day. Yet even though they propose honoring fathers, they are clearly conflicted about the idea. They … Continue reading

A radical Father’s Day proposal.

Several weeks ago I outlined the way modern conservative Christian leaders avoid confronting feminism by pretending that something mysterious has happened to men. This is something that is easy to prove and yet is a surprisingly well kept secret. Nearly all conservative Christians are in denial regarding this fact, as the whole exercise is one … … Continue reading

This is what a feminist looks like.

I thought I was done with Wonder Woman, but yesterday’s Wonder Woman Op Ed by Jessica Bennett at the NYT is too hilarious not to share. See the accompanying photo, described as: Attendees of an all-women screening of “Wonder Woman” … Continue reading

Suckers

As I explained in A long term commitment to selling divorce, the media has been selling “gray divorce” as empowerment to boomer women for nearly a decade, using a highly misleading narrative. Fortunately few women (statistically) are actually taken in … Continue reading

A long term commitment to selling divorce.

A recent MarketWatch article on “gray divorce” made me want to revisit the topic. Interestinly while the article itself doesn’t seem to have changed since it was first published in March, the spin the title places on the article has … Continue reading

Servant Leadership in two easy lessons.

Lesson 1: Your only job as a husband is to sacrifice yourself for her, not lead her. Don’t ever tell her what her role is or what to do. That would be subjugation: Subjugation is defined as “defeating or gaining … Continue reading
