Reformed is not enough



A man penetrates, conquers, colonizes, plants. A woman receives, surrenders, accepts.

“A man penetrates, conquers, colonizes, plants. A woman receives, surrenders, accepts.”


This is a direct quote from Douglas Wilson’s book, Fidelity: What it Means to be a One-Woman Man (Moscow, Idaho: Canon Press, 1999), 86-87

Maintaining important distinctions


In response to a previous post, it was suggested that pastor Wilson is not egotistical, merely acting as a blogger, not as a pastor, and that it is important to separate the personas.  The thing is – even if you separate them, you’ll end up with clones. Wilson is not any less egotistical on the pulpit than he is in his sermons.


Wait, what did he say?


In a completely unsurprising development, Mark Driscoll has been exposed doing stupid things on the internet.  What should catch your attention is word that Driscoll uses in the first quote posted in this article.

We could get every man, real man as opposed to pussified James Dobson knockoff crying Promise Keeping homoerotic worship loving mamma’s boy sensitive emasculated neutered exact male replica evangellyfish, and have a conference in a phone booth.

Did you see that? This comes from a post from the year 2000.  Doug Wilson published a book by that name in 2012.  Whether or not you believe that Wilson got it from Driscoll or Driscoll got it from Wilson, there’s definite connection between the two of them.


How shall they hear without a preacher?


Pick a post at random from . Every time he mentions his opinions, his thoughts, or refers to himself as an authority in any way,  take a shot of tequila. The longer posts are just alcohol poisoning waiting to happen.




So, now we’re going to talk about envy. Envy is apparently something insidious and evil, that creeps into your soul without you having a clue that it is there.   What is curiously absent in Wilson’s posts so far on envy is how he deals with his own envy. If it’s so prevalent, where did he find it in himself?  Apparently, everyone struggles with envy, so where is it in the CREC? Where is it in the pastors?  Why is it, that whenever Wilson attacks a prevalent sin in society, it never happens to be a sin that he or people he identifies with actually struggle with?


Pottsylvania rules


Wanted to work in Boris and Natasha, but there aren’t any obvious, vocal, strong female characters to choose from in the Christ Church/Trinity context. Hell, there isn’t one in the entire CREC.


Gossip is


You can be negative about the government, other churches, other theological viewpoints, televangelists,  and light beer, but you may not be negative about your church, church leaders, or church theological opinions.


Blessed are the straight…


Do you remember the section of the gospel about this?

Wilson seems to spend an inordinate amount of time on homosexuality and same-sex ‘mirage’, but I guess everyone has to have their own hobbies, right?

BTW, the google hit count for ‘homosexuality’ (not counting the cute little pet names he keeps using) is 1,590


Still a better idea…

betterideaWilson seems to be arguing that some things shouldn’t be necessary to inform the civil authorities about. The alternative, of course, is a much more powerful church with it’s own court system. Do you know who you get to appeal to if your elders condemn you? No one.
