Yes, absolutely. Feminism started by attacking God’s Fatherhood, then man’s, and Christians have almost entirely joined this rebellion against authority even while cavilling at improper use of body parts (only) in full copulation. Evangelicals think sex is meaningless except for body parts. Evangelicals are Tootsiefied.
I was for some years part of a group of executives leading renewal groups in denominations. Good News for United Methodist, and so on, and I represented Presbyterians Pro-Life in the PC(USA), When we met one year hosted by Good News down at Asbury College, the Good News men invited a rich pastor of thousands who had served on their denomination’s sexuality study committee to come and report on his experience. He was quite impressed with himself and reported how wrong the liberals were promoting the gay agenda. Stuff like that with the subtext being we were all God’s angels in our fights, and he certainly was.
I remember sitting there wondering if anyone else saw what seemed clear to me, that with sodominian movements taking over our denominations, we were only reaping the fruit of our own actions casting off the central truth of sexuality decreed by God when He made Adam first, then Eve? We didn’t want sex to carry authority, so why bother with body parts, either?
I put the question to the big man thirty years older, then, and he responded with both anger, irritation, and pomposity that I didn’t really want to go back to the dark ages when men oppressed women, did I?
We can’t abandon male authority and responsibility, which is to say Adam’s federal headship, and then make a show of holding onto other aspects of male and female. Sexuality begins with the order of creation of Adam first, then Eve, and all of us who want to cherry pick which parts of sexuality we’ll deny, hide, or speak only sotto voce, will find we’ve lost before we began to fight. This is complementarians, completely, and it’s a dead end. Love,
