Over the past week, Executive Director Owen Strachan has been sharing his fresh vision for CBMW, speaking on how we can build on the great legacy of Wayne Grudem and John Piper while applying the biblical principles to an ever-changing world.
On June 28, Dr. Strachan spoke with Jared Oliphint at Reformed Forum’s Christ the Center podcast.
We don’t need to have a narrow focus as complementarians. Our purview theologically covers so much. Think about it: gender, sexuality, family issues, discipleship issues … homosexuality, transgender matters, church/pastoral matters, individual Christian walk issues. There is so much. What we’re trying to do is build CBMW into a major media outlet for evangelicalism.
On July 4, he spoke with The Voice-Tribune about the latest Supreme Court rulings regarding marriage.
Strachan, who considers the Bible to be “the ultimate authority in the world,” said marriage requires not only love and commitment but adherence to Biblical guidelines. “In embracing same-sex marriage,” he said, “America is turning away from wisdom.”
In Strachan’s view, an anti-discrimination law would jeopardize religious liberty. “The irony is that discrimination will happen against the religious person who believes that homosexuality is a sin.”
On July 5, he was interviewed by Dan Darling at the popular Leadership Journal blog, Out of Ur.
We know from practical experience that men and women, though sharing much in terms of spiritual call and purpose, are uniquely created by God for certain roles and responsibilities. Amidst a spirit of mind that denies basic reality, CBMW is here to calmly, trustingly, and joyfully make the point that our distinctiveness and complementary are not ill realities, but beautiful ones, and if we will embrace them, we will unleash human flourishing in all directions.
