Concern #2 from the Demand for an Apology from the Council on Biblical Manhood and Biblical Womanhood
2. we are concerned about the sin that evangelical church leaders commit when they deny the love of Christ fully to women simply because they were born female;
When I was a kid I heard that girl babies in China were thrown into the river with the crocodiles. I couldn’t understand why. That didn’t make sense to me. It was years before I found out that it was because the girls had no value in their society. Even today they prefer to have a male child. Girls can be found in the orphanages for adoption while males are not adopted out unless they have a birth defect.
We don’t throw our girls in the river. We drown them, nevertheless. We drown them in the water of inequality, submersing them under the headship of their husbands, their fathers.
Done because of their birth as a female and for no other reason. Oh, we claim the Bible tells us so. At least the Chinese were honest about it.
The Chinese didn’t even try to give her equal-but status. The mothers were as bad as the fathers, denying their girls the chance at life.
There, but for the grace of God, go you.
Will you be the one who throws a girl child into the river of male headship? Or will you be the one who rescues girls from a certain death.
Your choice. Your voice.
