Good catch by Calvinist Janeway! She posted this on her blog Explorations in Egalitarianism – John Piper, Rape, Seduction, and Sin Leveling The quote is something that was tweeted by John Piper of Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
Editor’s note: Piper deleted this shortly after posting it on Twitter. He must have gotten some well-deserved fundigelical push back over this idea that somehow female seducers and male rapists are the same thing. A seducer can be resisted, but a rapist takes violently what he wants.
“The Bible says there are men who rape (Genesis 34:2) and women who seduce (Genesis 39:7). United in sin, distinct in form.”
