Reformed Seminary shills for Frank James' wife...

Error message

  • shill: a beguiler who leads someone into danger; an associate of a person selling goods or
    services who pretends no association to the seller and assumes the air

(Tim, w/thanks to Jeff and Andrew) Several readers called my attention to the just-released E-newsletter of Reformed Theological Seminary which hypes the latest book of their president's wife, Carolyn Custis James, as follows:

Traditionally, the Book of Ruth is viewed as a beautiful love story between Ruth and Boaz. But if you dig deeper, you will discover startling revelations, including:
  - God makes much of broken lives
  - God calls men and women to serve Him together
  - God counts on His daughters to build His kingdom

According to James, simpletons think "traditionally" while "warriors" dig deep and find hidden treasures that just happen to conform perfectly to their own feminist ideology. You know, stuff like "God calls men and women to serve Him together."

Tip your hat to the new constitution.

"God counts on His daughters to build His Kingdom."

Take a bow for the new revolution.

James is just one more run-of-the-mill feminist idealogue, but among the
conservative reformed community this is new and heady stuff. So
Covenant College, Reformed Seminary, and Westminster Seminary join with
Campus Crusade to provide forums for James' self-promotion. (New readers can look here for documentation of James' feminism.)

Well, if anyone needed a clue as to which seminaries and campus
ministries to avoid, it would be hard to find a better barometer than
James' itinerary. Here we have another example proving Schaeffer's dictum that the
evangelical church is always the world, but ten years later.

But it doesn't have to be this way. What a joy to live by faith, particularly in the matter of father-rule. May God cause us all to recommit ourselves to this healing Biblical truth. Father-rule is a Trinitarian doctrine founded in the archetypal Fatherhood of God.

I believe in God the Father Almighty. Do you?
