Okay all, it's a quiet night and I happen to like this topic.

So...I'mma do a thread.

Specifically, I'm going to talk for a minute about patriarchal interpretation and why inerrantist readings of Scripture stifle imagination and uphold systems of oppression. Our test passage for this is going to be John 8.

For those not familiar, this is the passage traditionally given a heading about "Jesus and the Adulterous Woman."

You can read the passage here if you need it for reference:

Okay all, let's talk about this real quick and it's implications for the so-called #SocialJusticeStatement .

Let's start by noting that the name "Stan Hannon" is a misspelling.

As can be seen at this link (fbcbelleview.org/stan-hannan-se…) his name is, in fact, Stan *Hannan* (thread) First, let's talk about Stan's biography a bit.

The scant details given on the church website about his military service (fbcbelleview.org/stan-hannan-se…) along with what @JustinPetersMin has said give us enough info to research exactly what Stan's role was in the Rhodesian military.

Next time anyone from @TGC claims to be pro-life, cite this article.

#Exvangelical #EmptyThePews (short thread) Notice 1st that in this article Leeman openly endorses the view that there is a "race gap" in abortion statistics.

In case you forgot that Evangelicals like to rip passages out of context in order to prove their own moral superiority... Notice that motive and faith are literally all that matter in Castleberry's system.

If you're a great person with good motives doing amazing justice work and helping lots of people, but you aren't a Christian, then it's all against God.

Al Mohler is speaking at a Classical Christian Ed event. CCE and white supremacy go hand in hand. Society of Classical Learning's explicit purpose is to preserve "Western Civilization" and its benefits.

That is coded language for white supremacy and preserving white privilege.

White male theological mediocrity at its worst.

1. The divine is repeatedly referred to as a mother in the OT.

2. Elohim, a common name for the divine in OT, can be rightly translated goddess.

3. El Shaddai depicts the divine as a protective and nurturing mother.

4. Ruach (translated "wind") is the word for the divine spirit in Hebrew. It is feminine.

5. The OT sapiential tradition depicts divine wisdom as personified in the goddess Sophia.

Listen to how they qualify the Civil Rights movement.

Starting at around 3:10, they define the protests of the Civil Rights Movement as refusing to obey a law, but don't believe it functioned to challenge the legitimacy of a regime. They define an "idolatrous" regime as being "against or for (respectively) the things the church cannot do."

How, then, would the Jim Crow era government of lynching, segregation, and violent white racism at all levels of government not be defined as an "idolatrous regime."

I've often seen evangelicals argue that their movement is not inherently political.

The only way this could be true is if one honestly believes white cisheteropatriarchy to be THE neutral, natural, and entirely objective position.

Which, FTR, is a deeply political view. Recently saw someone claim it was only the "talking heads" who were actually political, the average person in the pews at an evangelical church is just a good person doing a bunch of good behind the scenes.

I want to explore that for a moment.
