Biblical womanhood and its male exponents
Posted on March 14, 2009
Just a couple of quick questions for Jeff Robinson of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
If I’m the one who’s “in bondage – captive to a deadly ideology” and the women who took part in True Woman are the ones who enjoy “genuine liberty”, how come they’ve got you, yet another man, speaking for them?
And as for:
“Little does she know that she fights not merely against patriarchy, but against an invincible Champion whose certain victory purchased for her a season of amnesty called “today” in which she and her views might be made new”
WTF does that even mean?
I’m guessing Jesus has something to do with it.
I’m thinking he didn’t fully grasp the part of the book where the Pharisees were instructed on the error of their ways.
The little know concern for family and womanhood are great as well…They deserve to be more famous so here they are.
Also variation on a very old joke.
“Feminists made me a lesbian”
“If I give them the wool, will they make me one too?”
Incidentally a favoured tactic with Christians of moi is to ask them when exactly Jesus Christ (as opposed to e.g. obscure bits of Leviticus) said stuff in favour whatever it is that they’re proposing. They usually crumble pretty quickly.
FACT: Jesus said what you had to do to be saved was ‘give everything thou hast to the poor and follow me’
I can name some charities if you want Jeff.
I’ve read a lot from the CBMW and it’s poisonous. Their obsession with ‘proving’ complementarianism is disturbing.
Congrats anyway Cath – you’re ‘salty’ according to his dudeness. Have you ever been a sailor?
No, never been a sailor.
Wouldn’t mind being a pirate though. I bet I’d be really good at swashbuckling.
He means you’re fighting Jesus himself, that you can’t prevail, and that you’re living on borrowed time, i.e., be “made new” now because you’re in amnesty now but not forever.
Bad as those guys are, they are moderate compared with the really bad guys, sad to say.
Surely if you fought Jesus he’d just turn the other cheek?
Sorry to be facetious but couldn’t resist….
Jesus doesn’t want me for a sunbeam
The mosaic conception would have wealth as a loan from God, and the poor have a certain claim on the possessions of the rich.
