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

Here is a link to another one of those stories.

You, complementarian, do you say that this story is not what you stand for, you only support man-on-top and woman below if the man is being a “good” man? How good, then? Any time you talk of women submitting without qualifying your statement, you are strengthening the same attitude that led to nobody helping this abused girl.

Qualifying your degree of complementarianism still suggest that women should tolerate a certain amount of wrong from men instead of insisting on what is right, a degree of wrong men do not have to accept as they do not have to be subservient.

God is just. It is not just to say a certain group of people should accept wrongs that can be ended, and others do not have to.

Or to quote John Shore, from the link above:

If you are a Christian, then you have an immediate and profound moral responsibility to be absolutely, 100% certain that the Christianity you espouse and practice has nothing whatsoever in common with the systematically vile and manifestly depraved Christianity that, in its appalling arrogance, so cravenly sought to brainwash this poor girl into thinking that she was the cause of the nightmare she was forced to live.

  1. Thanks for this. I’ve linked it on my blog. This story needs to be heard. People need to see the end result of, “Men must ALWAYS lead. Women must ALWAYS follow. Women are more easily deceived and more likely to lie,” etc, etc. etc.

    It becomes a very ugly thing when it is pushed and promoted as God’s truth.

    Those men in that girl’s story, and the women, they should be ashamed of themselves for protecting a pedophile and throwing their little lambs under the bus of their doctrine.

  2. Absolutely right. What a disgusting story. And the only appropriate response has to be, are we contributing to the problem, or to the solution?

  3. Members of my family can SEE into the unseen world. This has caused our family to look at the topic of submission differently.

    When you can SEE the demon controlling and manipulating the person, you realize that it is SATAN that is the enemy, not the person he’s using to hurt someone else. Both the perpetrator and the victim, have been abused by satan, and are in need of restoration.

    Having seen such spiritual warfare, brought up an interesting question. If I see a demon attacking my husband, telling him word for word what to instruct me to do, should I still submit to my husband? Just who would I be submitting to? My husband? Or a demon? What does the bible say we should do concerning demons? Should we submit to them? The bible tells us that as believers, we are to: Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7, NIV) Abstain from all appearance of evil. (1 Thess. 5:22 KJV) Cast out unclean spirits. (See Matthew 10:1, KJV) Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21 KJV) (For the full version of this see:

    Perhaps the weakness within the Independent Fundamental Baptist church that comes from their views, is not just on a woman’s blind submission to her husband, but also of their beliefs on the possibility of a Christian being able to be affected so by a demon…
