The “Feminization” of the Church

Image by Kristen Rosser

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIn recent years a lot of people have been talking about why in most Christian churches there is an approximately 60-40 ratio of women to men.  This 2006 Biola Magazine article puts it like this: There are generally more women than men in every type of church, in every part of the world. . .A traditional explanation is that women are more spiritual than men. But the leaders of [a new masculinity] movement suggest that the church’s music, messages and ministries cater to women. . . The result of this feminization is that many men, even Christian men, view churches as “ladies clubs” and don’t go — or they often go to please their … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Enough to Pray and Read the Bible?

Quoting

by Colin Campbell of Above Rubies. From Meat For Men - The Anointing Test Part 5Editor's note: According to Mr. Campbell it's not enough to simply believe, pray, read your Bible and try to emulate Jesus. Everyone else needs to be able to 'see' that God is walking with you. Is this not putting extra rules on the simple truth of the Gospel? This is exactly the type of high demand behavior tactics that cults use.  … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 1 – Cinderella

Preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI've found two different types of toxic views in reading CP literature. The more common toxicity is "Do this or really bad things will happen to you!" Debi has given us plenty of these examples so far. This chapter is a different type of toxic. This is the "Do this and life will be magical!" toxicity.Personally, I think the second type is more pernicious than the first. With the first, once you've done the forbidden action, you can figure out pretty quickly if the predicted bad outcome happens. The second type, though, is hard to disprove because life isn't always magical. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 207-222, ‘Reverse-Engineering Your Life and Marriage’

list-wife

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Well, folks, we finally did it. We managed to make it all the way through to the very bitter end of Mark and Grace Driscoll’s Real Marriage. Usually I’m excited about wrapping up one of these review series, but all I can manage to feel about finishing this one is … relief. I’m not entirely sure why reading Real Marriage was so much more draining than Fascinating Womanhood or Captivating, but it has been. … [Read more...]
