So, that post I was going to write about the Red Letter Christians interview with Mimi Haddad of CBE? This is it.
I. Give. Up.
I have listened to the interview from start to finish. Twice. I have transcribed most of it. And I still can't make head or tail of it. There is both entirely too much to say about it and nothing new to say at all. Trying to have her cake and eat it too, she recounts boys not talking to her after she beat them at tennis, men who shunned her after she beat them at backgammon, a Lilly study showing men "are marrying women that are socially and culturally inferior to them." and a group of female residents at the Mayo Clinic who were moaning because their male classmates married nurses and therapists, not their classmates. But she also claims, "I began to see that equality was valued in many places except the church."
So, which is it? Are men constantly looking for women they can best at sport and games and feel smarter than -or- is equality valued in "many places" except the church?
I can't figure it out.
The interview goes downhill from there because they get into biblical interpretation and discussing certain passages. Race differences are equated to the differences between the sexes are equated to differences in age. Phillip's daughters are morphed into preachers, Paul found Christ on the road to Damascus . . .
Yes, she did say, "And you remember when he found Christ on the Damascus Road ..."
You heard it hear folks. Paul found Christ.
Funny, I thought it was the other way around:
As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” And He said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do.” (Acts 9:3-6)
It was at that point in the interview that my jaw hit the floor for the last time.
I found myself wondering, if they can't even get the neutral passages right ... If they can't even be honest about the passages that have nothing to do with the gender agenda, why even bother dealing with their treatment of the so-called disputed proof texts?
And I'm not. I'm done, finished, finito, terminar, fertig.
They're looking more and more like Cretans (Titus 1:12)
