Another view of biblical womanhood
Regarding “Seminary website lists aspects of ‘biblical womanhood’:
This article saddens my heart and soul deeply. I thank God there are other Baptist organizations such as Baptist Women in Ministry that demonstrate a different biblical view.
God’s selective election is ‘perfect’
“Young minister describes journey in and out of Calvinism” is an interesting article.
I’m from the same area of Texas. I also got tired of the type of Christianity he experienced growing up. I also was a pastor—and still am, although not vocationally. I also got bullied into a corner by Scripture, which left me with no other choice but to see the truth there we call “Calvinism.”
Reading the article, I read a line that, although Austin didn’t say it, gives insight to his problem: “But God, as he understood him to be taught in Calvinism, defies human understandings of what goodness, love and justice means.”
“Defies human understanding.” We never should try to define God by our understanding and attribute sinful human attributes to a sinless, holy, perfect God. If we believe God is perfect in all his ways, then even if we don’t understand, his love expressed in choosing some for salvation is perfect.
