Dalrock, you are evidence that teh stoopid truly knows no gender. Harsh perhaps, but painfully true. Your latest post is all about “The Apostle Paul’s secret feminist message finally decoded.” Cynicism, satire perhaps, but not edifying, not reflective of scripture, not an argument for femininity, not a motivator for soft hearts and gentle women.
In the post Dalrock declares, “Christian feminists are shameless liars when it comes to Scripture. They claim to have secret knowledge of the meaning of Scripture, meanings no one could discern for 2,000 years. In the hands of a Christian feminist Paul is no longer warning that those who would corrupt the Church will take a page out of the Serpent’s playbook in Eden and focus on deceiving women as the entry point.”
Speaking of “secret wisdom,” can you show me where Paul warns that the serpent will use women to deceive the church? Can you show me the part where women are so evil we are nearly indistinguishable from the enemy himself? Can you tell me why you read those beautiful words Paul wrote and interpret them to mean that women must be weak, silent, in perpetual service to all men, completely erased, used as nothing more than doormats to wipe ones feet on? Are we really that scary?
The woman in your video is correct in the sense of how she handles scripture, in how she lifts up and encourages women, in how she speaks of us as daughters of most high God, how she encourages us. She speaks of how we often let the wrong kind of guy creep into our lives, false teachers, controlling, obnoxious creeps, and she takes that right out of scripture. “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” Women have numerous issues Dalrock, but we are not the “evil men and seducers” spoken of in scripture.
Scripture does not call for weak women, in fact the precise opposite. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. Those words about weak women are actually a warning, not a commandment for us to generate even more weakness in women! Like, duh, we are not called to be “silly women,” we are advised against it. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts..”
Is is disheartening to have so many women engaged in the work of the Lord, in the work of clothing ourselves in Strength and honour, in exhorting one another and delivering the good news, only to have people like Dalrock going in the opposite direction, a false direction by the way, a direction based neither in scripture nor history, a direction that does nothing to further the cause, but rather caters to hostility, sin, and bitterness in men’s lives.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers…”
Like, Dalrock, h-e-l-l-o! Take it from a sister who knows sarcasm and bitterness well, you are not hearing the truth in the words you quote. Women cannot exhort, praise, or encourage men who are too busy loving their own selves and trying to tear their sisters down.
