Another Good One from Wade

He introduces us to Mary who works with people to overcome sexual abuse.

Stop Cursing the Darkness and Start Turning on Lights

(There is a link to contact Mary and get information on a sex abuse suvivor workshop in the Texarkana area in September. I'm sure those wishing to host such a thing in their area could contact Mary and get info.)

Princess or Priest

I stumbled upon this one when I was checking where the traffic for my site was coming from. No, this blog didn't link me. But rather someone else was searching something concerning John Eldredge and Ransomed Heart Ministries and I followed their google search to this place. I really like some of the things Laura Robinson has to say about the book "Captivating".

Choosing Priest Instead of Princess: The Pitfalls of Ransomed Heart Ministries

Some time back I did a series on Wild at Heart and John Eldredge. I have a love/hate relationship with his ministry.

Political Leaders Make Poor Teachers

Nick Bulbeck dropped in at FBWTS again recently. He left a nice long comment that I want to make others aware of. It is under:

Seattle Slavery Pushing

You can go there and read it in it's entirety. But here is a snippet to whet you whistle.

" I mean any one of numerous "teachers" who are nothing of the sort, but are gifted leaders and politicians who cultivate a reputation for being "biblical" merely by banging a drum for a selected handful of conservative doctrines. There are thousands of local pastors out there who think everyone but their own tribe needs to get "back to scripture", and who are just Mark Driscoll writ small. Historically, of course, there's the Papacy, which is Mark Driscoll writ large."

More understanding of the Driscoll phenomenon from over the pond.

Freedom and Courage

You need freedom to be happy.
You need courage to pursue freedom.
You can't have either without truth.

Linda Murphrey, Jack Hyles daughter, speaks of her life in her father's cult. And of her escape. And the ingredients of her escape. Courage, truth, and freedom.

Female Preacher Alert...

Hide your wives, hide your kids, especially your teens, oh you great and mighty patriarchs!
This woman and her words might destroy the stranglehold you have on your personal little kingdom and set your slaves free to actually worship the God who loves them and died for them so that they could live beyond the bounds of selfish men.

Nadia Bolz-Weber

(no wonder comps and patris are afraid of women actually set free by the true gospel.)

Illustration of a Megalomaniac

Yes, we've all run into them, especially in Patriarchy circles beside Complementarian and other circles. They are everywhere. It's just that Patriarchy is particularly good at attracting them.
