The Unconscious Girds for War

A day of reckoning is coming, one way or another, eventually…

I’ve been thinking of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 much lately, too…

The Orthosphere

Something in the air has just in the last few days changed. It has at least changed in the air of me – in my spirit. And if it has changed in me, then it must have changed in the hearts of many millions of men like me.

Unmarried 34-year-old woman vows to change shark into loving, faithful husband by hand-feeding him raw meat

WINTERY KNIGHT

Melissa Brunning dispenses advice and posts exotic selfies on her page “Wild and Free”

Melissa Brunning is a 34-year-old unmarried woman who operates a Facebook page called “Wild and Free“. On that page, she posts inspirational quotes about travel, fun, following your heart, as well as pictures from all her exotic vacations. The “about” section of the (public) page says “My mission is to inspire others to break free from 9-5 & live LIFE on their terms, to be WILD and FREE to follow their dreams, to explore & go on adventure”.

Here is her philosophy in one photo:

Life is too short to waste time listening to wise people Life is too short to waste time listening to people with demonstrated ability and success

Anyway, you can look at all the selfies of her with her cat, her bikinis, etc. on her personal Facebook page. The reason for this post is because Melissa met a new guy…

Headship tomorrow and headship yesterday, but never headship today.

Dalrock

“The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday—but never jam to-day.”
“It must come sometimes to ‘jam to-day,’” Alice objected.
“No, it ca’n’t,” said the Queen. “It’s jam every other day: to-day isn’t any other day, you know”

― Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There

Last week I covered the complementarian argument that Adam’s sin was failing to prevent Eve from being tempted into sinning.  This specific bogus claim is part of a larger pattern where headship alternates between being denied (or minimized to irrelevance) and headship being used as a handy club to bludgeon husbands (usually to blame men for women’s sins).

The speed with which the transformation occurs often makes this particular method of complementarian rationalization quite comical.  I once attended a sermon where the pastor started by explaining that his wife is in authority over him, and discussed the proper ways she punishes…

Now get out there and reject passivity!

Amusingly, one also finds that neo-cons accuse Trump of a different kind of ‘passivity’ and encourage him to reject it; see here

Dalrock

Complementarians have the problem of wanting to seem biblically traditional, while avoiding actually being so.  The goal is to create something separate from formal feminism/egalitarianism, while avoiding offending feminist sensibilities.  This has led complementarians to invent a host of weasel words that sound like something traditional but mean something else.  This starts with the very term complementarian, a term meant to seem traditional while rejecting tradition.  This allows complementarian women to seem traditional while they discuss Women in ministry kissing traditionalism good-bye.

Other complementarian weasel terms are servant leader, a term that means not headship, and step up, a word that means whatever you want it to mean so long as it doesn’t mean take charge.

But today’s complementarian weasel word is reject passivity.  This is the other term you say to men when you want to seem like you are telling them…

Riding the security carousel.

Figures…

Dalrock

Pastor Douglas Wilson explains in Reforming Marriage why women’s sexual sin is different than men’s sexual sin.  When dirty men sin it is because they want sex.  But when misguided and unfortunate women sin it is because they are looking for love in all the wrong places:

If we interviewed a thousand men who were immoral and sexually promiscuous, we would find we had a thousand men with a lack of self-control with regard to sexual temptation. If we were to do the same with a thousand promiscuous women, we would not find a thousand women with a sexual problem, but rather with a security problem. They are generally not looking for great sexual satisfaction, but rather for emotional security.

Luckily normal women aren’t tempted to become promiscuous.  Only women damaged by failing fathers are tempted in this way (emphasis mine):

The girl has a big vacuum in her life—a…
