In the wake of recent events in Christian sub-culture, I am grateful to have guest blogger Dani Ross share how wrong theology leads to destructive consequences.
I’m not going to assume to know what exactly brings a man to find pleasure in the sight of a black-and-blue-faced woman whom he instructed to endure violence at the hands of her own husband.
“I hope you’re happy,” she said to him. And he responded, “Yes ma’am, I’m happy.”
Honestly, something breaks inside of me when I think on it too much.
But maybe it’s not thinking about the reality of this toxic teaching that has brought us to where we are today. This type of counsel isn’t what is shocking; we all know he is not the only pastor to teach along these lines. He is certainly not the only one who teaches this warped view of Scripture. No, what is disturbing is it has been an acceptable response within Christian sub-culture.
