SBC and their Big Guns

What Big Gun will they pull out next to aim at women who are speaking out for equality?

In October 2009, they shot a cannon at women with the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood. 

They had been sitting on this since it was composed in 1987.  They were just holding it for the right time.  Suddenly it became the right time because women were getting too uppity in  seeking equality.  So they loaded their cannon and aimed it at women, shot it out and it was quickly adopted by the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I can imagine them rubbing their hands and smiling in jubilation that they had done it!  Now they have permanently put women in their place.

Sorry, brothers.  What you did was to stir up the anthill.

There will be a conference in Orlando Florida on July 24 called Seneca Falls 2 Christian Conference – trying to find solutions and to offer a united front in favor of gender-equality for Christian women.  This conference is led by Jocelyn Andersen, author of the new book Woman this is WAR.  You can order this book on her website www.womansubmit.blogspot.com.   I will be speaking at this conference.

There will be a conference in September 2010 in Enid, Oklahoma, led by Jon Zens who will be speaking on Men, Women & Equality in Christ.  For information contact Jon Zens at jzens@searchingtogether.org or call 715-338-2796.  Jon Zens is the author of the book What’s with Paul and Women? Unlocking the Cultural Background of 1 Timothy 2. You can order this book by contacting him at jzens@searchingtogether.org.  It has a foreword by Wade Burleson. 

Plan to attend these conferences.  Offer your support verbally or by buying their books.

We must continue to speak out.  Join with us in speaking out for women’s equality. 

Pass the word along that women will not wait for the next Big Gun to be shot at them.
