TGC on the importance of a complementarian feminist merit badge.

26 Jan

Spot on. One thing that Reformational Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox are agreed upon is that clergy are only supposed to be men; accordingly, there is no point for a woman in any of these traditions to attend a theological school / seminary. None whatsoever. Waste of time and money. But, as with domestic science / household science / home economics, it is a way to feed impressionable young women agit-prop under the guise of traditionalism, and to thus ‘subvert the dominant paradigm’ (as them there progs say).

I’ve dealt with the TGC folks and their ilk in the past; alas, utterly and completely Blue Pill. They just don’t ‘get it’, and they never will…

The Gospel Coalition’s front page banner article today (archive) is 5 Reasons I’m Glad I Went to Seminary, by stay at home mom Elizabeth Garn.  In closing, Garn explains that seminary wasn’t really required for any of the five reasons she offers:

Is seminary absolutely necessary to get that foundation (or any of the other things I’ve mentioned)? No, not necessarily. Could a person learn all I learned without a seminary education? Probably. But it’s harder to do it on your own. There’s something to be said about surrounding yourself with trustworthy, godly professors who will guide you to a deeper faith in God and knowledge of his Word.

Well, there it is. That’s what I’d tell a friend if they asked whether I’m glad I went to seminary. I’d refill her coffee, double check the time to ensure we weren’t late for preschool pickup or whatever errands we…

    As I pointed out over at Dalrock’s, there is no point in ANYBODY attending a seminary these days unless their goal is to explore the depth of the corruption of modern theology. Not worth wasting the time or the money.

    The money quote at Dalrock’s from poster “Jonadab-the-Rechabite:”

    I wonder if any seminary teaches the gals to be silent in the church, that if they had a question to ask their husband at home, to wear a head covering to honor their husband or to allow themselves to be mistreated and become like Christ – you know, like a doormat.

    I’d wager that they are more often taught: to speak up, ask questions of who ever they discerned would give them a pleasing answer to satisfy their itching ears, to act as equals to men in all things they wanted and not in the activities they did not care for, to dress as they judged fit and that allowing one to be a “doormat” is a sin against their own dignity and a denigration of their image bearing.

    She is a stay at home mom but she has offloaded her kids to pre-school.

    Pre-school has lots of negatives; one is that studies have shown pre-school has no lasting improvement on educational performance.

      Pre-school is like another form of day-care. Expecting strangers to raise one’s children for you.

        No wonder, then, that it doesn’t aid in later educational performance…

      Interesting about pre-school.
