Because Christianity is bigger than Biblical manhood or Biblical womanhood (Blog of Retha Faurie)

On Commandments of Men, Lewis tears into what he calls hyper-fundamentalism, and everything associated with patriarchy. Here, he complains about a perceived Jesus-plus-works attitude* on the “Biblical womanhood” blog Kelly Crawford posts on.

Kelly responds, and takes issue with among others his language:

If you would care to articulate which “BS” doctrines it is that I “spout” (is this really the language of those who claim to have the spirit of Christ?) …

Yes, Kelly. BS (minus the bull part) is absolutely the language someone with the spirit of Christ use for works that look religious, but deny Christ. After listing his religious qualifications, Paul say:

Php 3:8 I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:… and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, – KJV, bold mine.



*The Jesus-plus-works issue is quite hard to verbalize and many committed Christians who are not into legalism will word their position very differently from Lewis. However, he is right to tear into her, as however partially right her words may superficially be, the works she are promoting is not what the Bible asks. And she certainly implies that the kind of works she promote are the main things that define Christians.
