The Endgame of Complementarianism is the Suppression of Women

The Logical Outcome of Complementarianism The sad reality that many of my good Christian brothers and sisters don’t realise is that, in the end, their supposed scripture-tight homey Complementarian view toward women plays out in the suppression of women in society at large. Many may scoff and think that I am exaggerating the reach of… Continue reading The Endgame of Complementarianism is the Suppression of Women

Refreshing comments from an old commentary on Genesis 1-3

Enough Light

In a recent post, I mentioned I read through a commentary of Genesis by Derek Kidner in the Tyndale OT series. It is copyright from 1967. The point in noting its older date, is that I was surprised (pleasantly) by some egalitarian or progressive thoughts on the opening chapters of Genesis.

Church is Family, not Business!

In the West, a consumer mentality is often fostered in us even when it comes to church. We, unfortunately, all too easily have a "What's in it for me?" attitude. And, where this exists, little is required of every member to grow in real love and care for each other. And, we like it that… Continue reading Church is Family, not Business!

You’ll Spank Your Child if you Love Him

When Affection is as Hate Do you love really God and want to do whatever He asks of you! How about when it comes to child rearing and disciplining with the rod? The principle "Spare the rod; spoil the child” can clearly be seen in God’s word. Consider the following Proverbs from the Bible (I’ve included… Continue reading You’ll Spank Your Child if you Love Him
