The post is "Humility without Hierarchy: How Submission Works for Us". The lady is Rachel Held Evans. She is kind of a self-proclaimed "Progressive Christian". And let me just say even the term "Progressive Christian" just makes me crazy. It is definitely interesting to read but ultimately it is dangerous.
There is no real standing on anything. They mix Biblical beliefs with cultural beliefs such as Mrs. Evan's Submission post. It talks about the "why" she submits and it is not because it is a Biblical mandate.
I do understand the searching. I think all of us go through a time of searching out our faith once we reach adulthood. What we need to work on (we being the Evangelicals of the world) is having the correct Biblical answers for those that are searching and
The truth is it is hard to talk to Progressives because they are like nailing Jello to a wall. It is very hard to pin them down as they are so "open-minded" and all inclusive. You could argue the Bible but they believe in that too, somewhat.
I would just have to say that arguing Christianity is a great way to get people to read your blog and to get comments. It just is. There are so many differing opinions out there and lots of people willing to share their's. I think I would like to start a new blog called "Repudiating Rachel" (meaning I would counter what Rachel says on her blog). I will start it right after I look up the word "repudiating" and make sure I am using it in the right context.
And now it is your turn! Tell me your thoughts on the subject - good or bad, agreeing or not, Progressive or Evangelical - just use nice words.
"51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” Luke 12:51-53
