I’m opening this thread for discussion on the recent article by D. Scott Meadows, Addenda, Part 2: Clarification of “A Christian Wife’s Marriage Catechism” posted at Reformed Baptist Fellowship blog.
D. Scott Meadows has had quite a response on social media about his recent article, “A Christian Wife’s Catechism.” The first article received a lot of comments and several blog posts discussing how dangerous this article is for women who may be abusive marriages. I posted an article about this situation here: A Pastor is Challenged after Releasing a Disturbing and Potentially Dangerous Article Directed to Wives of “Difficult” Husbands.
I noticed there were some great comments that really should be seen to those searching for information on this particular article, so I copied all of the comments that were posted in the comments of the previous, unrelated article into this post so that those who may be using internet search engines to find more info about this article will be able to read your great comments. There is a method to my madness. 🙂
A couple of highlights:
- Male chauvinism and egalitarian feminism alike pervert the plain sense of Scripture; we must not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind(Rom 12.2).
- Beware of twisting another’s words and then cursing your pretzel.
- Providence ordains that I should hear criticism, and even when it is unjustified, God uses it for my good and I should consider His purpose in it. I thank Him for all the comments He has sent me through you.
- Rather than sustaining online debate, I ought to give priority to loving and leading my beloved wife and my precious congregation at Exeter, New Hampshire.
