#ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear trended on Twitter this week

This Tuesday night, Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist, started the hashtag #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear and it took off.  Here are my favorites:

This is a drop in the bucket on contributions to this thread.  Definitely checkout the hashtag and scroll through the sobering collection.

Then Christians began redeeming the conversation with the hashtag #ThingsChristianWomenShouldHear:

This is my prayer too:

Amen.

  1. It does strike me that for some (by no means all) complementarian believers their belief in the absoluteness of complementarianism has become somewhat of an idol – it has taken a position of something to be worshipped and revered even above holiness. I can understand a complementarian view but not at the expense of mercy, charity or godly wisdom (even at the expense of the bible itself, on occasion). BUT no doubt this happens the other way, too (in fact my poor husband experienced it the other way round when in training and he has never really recovered from it). Humility, submission and modesty – in dress, in speech, in action – are not presented as female-only in the bible (far from it) so why do so many seem to interpret these things as anti-godly in men? That seems to me to be a very worldly, or world-influenced, view.
    The bible has never been a one-size fits all – except in love and mercy 😉

    • Yes! In my previous blog post, I shared a comment thread in which complementarians kept saying I don’t understand submission, to which I would say I practice mutual submission, to which they would say it grieves them that I’m so anti-submission, to which I’d reply I PRACTICE MUTUAL SUBMISSION. 😜 It just goes both ways and that aligns so much more with Jesus’ message to us to be humble, meek, not lord authority over others, become a servant, etc.
