If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with b.s. -W.C. Fields.
Sin is very good at hiding within the boundaries of the church. Educated men using big words aid and abet sin in hiding so that it is able to become entrenched and cause great damage. Doug Wilson is such a man who aids and abets the sin of dominance and oppression within church and marriage.
The sorry, sad thing is that Doug Wilson has worked so hard to make the sin of the gentiles (lording over one another) applicable in the church, especially in marriage of men lording over women, that he has profoundly deceived himself into believing that what he teaches is actually the Bible. What is much sadder still is he has deceived other, supposed brilliant men, like John Piper, Mark Driscoll, and Jared Wilson. Which causes one to wonder. Are our internationally known leaders really that brilliant. Or do they just really like being baffled by b.s parading around as truth.
I could go into great length and explain. But why? When Wade Burleson has done a better job that I could.
