Note: This is a departure from my normal genre of writing, and is in the format of a rant or vent….one of which I don’t apologise.
John Piper has got up my nose when he said, “God’s intention for Christianity is for it to have a “masculine feel”
I made the following comment elsewhere today:
Pipers ‘sodmonisation’ of Scripture is what happens when you cowtow to a certain theological belief system and community, in which the peer pressure to remain “one of the boys” is immense.
Seriously this guy has overstepped the mark. Joel made a great comment about his marriage improving in his recent post about leaving Fundamentalism in which he posted about a new book being released by IVP.
Shame on you John Piper! Shame! Do you really believe that God’s intention is for Christianity to have an masculine feel!
I thought Christianity was about Christ, freeing all of humanity from the bondage of sin and reconciling us back to God. I thought within the framework of Christianity we recognise that both male and female were created in the image of God. And I thought that within the glorious liberation of the Gospel that there is no distinction between gender, race and societal class / position in Christ. … H.T my blog
Piper, Driscol, et al, all remind me of a school boys club where they get a grip on each other, if you know what I mean? I think Paul’s vent to them would be….guys I wish you would go and cut all your tackle off! Such is the nature of circumcising the body. …..end of my rant!
