What does “wives, submit to your own husbands” mean? Good cartoon graphic. If only everyone actually understood this.
Good, thought-provoking article by Albert Mohler about the history of the “Heresy of Racial Superiority.” We in the Church need to accept that the Church often was leading the charge for racism, and admit such teachings were indeed unbiblical.
The Cripplegate has a good article about how Christians have to understand and how we are to confront and deal with “The Self-Deification of a Nation.”
An interesting blog I have been following for a couple months is “A Cry For Justice.” It’s primary focus is about how the Church fails to deal with domestic abuse and sexual abuse within its membership. Very often with domestic abuse the wife is just told to submit (we have a good friend whose church would tell her to submit to her husband as she suffered continual abuse until she violated their rules and left him), and merely slap the husband’s hands without every holding him accountable. The leadership in these churches will be held accountable before God. I don’t agree with everything on the blog, especially with some eisegetical practices, but overall they do a good job of supporting the victims. Anyway, this particular article, “Some Thoughts on Broadway, the Narrow Way, and Abuse” was worth sharing.
An excellent commentary on Philemon by Doug Wilson.
One of the biblical passages that skeptics like to assault is Deuteronomy 21:18-21 in regards to the execution of the rebellious son. What is really going on, though, and is it as unjust and barbaric as the skeptic claims? I think this excellent commentary should answer all the objections.
In these days of such rapid collapse of all moral conscience in our society, always remember where our Mighty Fortress is.
