Women - What's Our Place?

For an interesting discussion on the issue of women and our place in the home, check out Many Evangelicals Unwittingly Live as Feminists, a review of Russell D. Moore's statements. It's a bit heavier reading than I sometimes offer, but definitely worth a little chewing to get your brain going mid-week.

Thanks for sharing this, Marlene. He is too right:

"A rejection of male headship leads to a redefinition of divine Fatherhood and divine sovereignty, Moore said. He pointed to open theism (a view that argues God’s knowledge of the future is limited) as an example of the dangers of rejecting biblical patriarchy. Open theism is built upon a denial of the Scripture’s portrayal of God as the sovereign Head of His creation, he said.

“Open theism is not more dangerous than evangelical feminism, or even all that different,” Moore said. “It is only the end result of a doctrine of God shorn of patriarchy.”

I have never thought of it this way, but he is right.
