Reading Time: 9 minutes Franklin Graham’s behavior is not some aberration, and neither was his bizarre decision to bring Panahi’s abuser to a military ministry shindig. It’s par for the course in evangelical ministry.
Reading Time: 8 minutes What these men want in marriage isn’t completely unreasonable. So (I wondered) why can’t they find it?
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, let me show you how good advice goes bad in the cargo cult of evangelical marriage counseling.
Reading Time: 7 minutes On Mother’s Day, I showed you a major evangelical news site that somehow missed an important story about the single moms in their churches who didn’t find motherhood through adoption. Instead, these women got their kids through unapproved sex or divorce, neither of which hardline evangelicals like much. Evangelical single moms really test evangelicals’ own marketing hype to the limits — and accidentally reveal exactly who evangelicals, as a group, truly are. Today, let me show you how evangelicals treat single moms — and why, and what their behavior says about them as a group.
Reading Time: 8 minutes In the April issue of Christianity Today (CT), their cover story involved the most hilarious bait-and-switch attempt I think I’ve ever seen from any Christian site, like seriously ever. In this story, CT tried to pretend that there’s some big groundswell of single evangelical women (and some men) who are adopting children rather than waiting for marriage and procreation. Today, let’s look at this story they ran — and the real one they absolutely, positively did not want to discuss — about evangelical single moms.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Today, let me show you the double message that evangelical men send the women in their tribe — and how important it’s getting for evangelicals to submerge these messages out of sight again.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Seriously. How could I possibly resist the spectacle of an evangelical offering up The Big Problem Here for unwanted singleness? Now add in the fact that these two stories intersect with our current topic of evangelism. How how how how could I resist? I couldn’t. That’s how.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Evangelical men get taught completely impractical rules for marriage, and then — once everything goes completely pear-shaped — take disastrous advice to fix their ruined relationships. Today, let me show you some of that disastrous advice — and why it absolutely doesn’t work, and what evangelical husbands learn as a result.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Today, let me show you how evangelicals’ broken system poisons members’ minds and relationships — and sows the seeds for marriages that are destined to fail.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Evangelicals in general absorb all kinds of bad advice about relationships, but today I want to show you what the men learn about leading happy marriages.
