Good morning!

Words matter … alot!

Words - Beth - Moore - Christ - Love

The most common words used by Beth Moore are: Christ, love, attitudes, accepted, serve, respect, know, misogyny, alongside, asking, sake, scripture, good, want, challenges, say, bible, serving, sexism, leaders, etc.

The most common words used by Strachan and his ilk are: church, teaching, word, order, headship, authority, scripture, teach, preach, called, leadership, design, gathered, says, rules, biblical, exercise, etc.

Subject - Beth - Moore - Jesus - Love

They are both talking about the same subject. But Beth Moore is concerned about Jesus, love, service; how misogyny has hurt the gospel of Christ. Owen Strachan, Al Mohler, and Denny Burke, in contrast, are concerned about hierarchical structures, maintaining order, authority, and who gets to be in charge.

By their words, complementarianism is about hierarchy, authority, and power. It always has been about power, it always will be about power. How Owen Strachan and Al Mohler responded to Beth Moore clearly shows this. Beth Moore threatened their power hierarchy and they were afraid.

Jesus - Matthew - Quest - Power - Opposite

Jesus told us in Matthew 20 that the quest for power was the exact opposite of his message. “The rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high official exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave…”

Powermongers monger, and lovers love. And don’t forget that the term “complementarian” was originally used by the egalitarians until the Neo-Complementarians realized hierarchy and patriarchy were bad for branding. So they swiped “complementarian.”
