Best of the Complementarian Web This Week
The world did not stop while Genderblog devoted this week to a series on GenderPac and its strategic plan, so we didn't want you to miss out on some outstanding articles that we were unable to comment on this week. For your leisurely weekend reading, here they are:
"Women in Combat" is one of the top 10 searches on our website. John Piper provides a definitive word on this subject in World magazine. Piper says:
"A man who endorses women in combat is not pro-woman; he's a wimp. He should be ashamed. For most of history, in most cultures, he would have been utterly scorned as a coward to promote such an idea. "
Anything that John Ensor writes is worth reading, especially his latest book Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart. You will not want to miss the five-part interview with John by our friends over at Girltalk.
Finally, Mike Seaver over at Role Calling had a touching post about a man named Tim who portrayed for his daughter a magnificent view of God's design of masculinity and femininity simply by being faithful to God's calling as a father and protector. Here is an excerpt:
Tim promised that he would love and protect his daughter and he promised that he would have her best in mind as he guarded her and allowed a future man to court her. He promised that he would choose a godly man for her and that this man would be ready for pursuing her toward marriage when he allowed the relationship/courtship to begin. Tim promised his commitment to his daughter and she was overjoyed to rest in her father's loving care as he pulled the pressure of her future off of her and kept the weight of it on himself.
You see, Tim is a godly dad who knows that he is to be the one guarding his daughter.
Thanks for reading Genderblog, we look forward to seeing you next week.
