Biblical Equality Discussion / Re: Boss/ruler vs leader
« Last post by TL on Yesterday at 01:48:12 PM »
The problem with thinking of a husband as a leader is it is bogus, since Scriptures do not suggest that husbands should lead their wives.  Rather husbands are to lay their lives down for their wives, and nurture, cherish, protect and provide for them.

Hmm yeah I suppose so. Although personally I try to steer clear of that definition just because of how some comps use it in relation to marriage, as if the husband is supposed to know more spiritually than his wife. I've seen some comp books actually actively encourage the husband to make sure he know more about the bible than she does, so he is able to lead!  :sick01:

I think Marg might actually have an interesting article about "leading vs ruling" if I can dig out somewhere....

Today I have written an Easter post: "Jesus in the Gardens: Undoing What Adam Did."

I have also posted this on the Equality Central main blog.  :yes:

I went to some seminary.  However, not long enough to learn how to write articles that look professional.  :)   But, it is not the going to seminary that increases a person's knowledge IMO.  It is the diligent and prayerful study of Scripture, learning from others, and putting your learning into practice that gives a person wisdom and understanding.  Anyone can do that.

This really doesn't have to do with this thread in particular, but hanging out w/ some of you egals makes me marvel that I'm actually interested in going to an elite seminary someday.  I think hardly anyone here is a seminarian, but many are incredibly well-versed and--that marvel of marvels--retain what you read and explain it well.  I can only imagine what the seminarians must be like....  Yikes.   

:thumbsup: to all of you.

I went to seminary, got Masters in theology. Mary (if she still posts here) went to the same seminary.

You'll do great!

Wow, that's a fascinating website. I knew I had  so much to learn about honor/shame cultures, but some of what I read there makes me realize it all spills over into all cultures.

Many aspects of this seem common:

So I think it affects us all.

I've been following the blog on this website for a little while, and I love it!  I truly believe that if we have some understanding of the honor-shame dynamic that is prevalent in the cultures of biblical times, especially in the 1st century Greco-Roman world, we will gain new understanding from the the Scriptures.

Actually, I think we should learn to do without the oil. It's one of the major contributors to pollution, and what does it do us when we've grown so dependent on it that it becomes a ball and chain? We'll be in deep trouble when it eventually does run out, as we've always assumed that it will 'always be there' in some vague sense instead of planning for it's end.

We are so fortunate that we agree on as much as we do.   :clapping:
