From the July 18, 2006 broadcast of Generations Radio, once again it’s always the man’s fault.
In this edition, host Kevin Swanson lamented the state of the contemporary male as sexual predator, but unless he has gone over to the side of feminism like so many in the Evangelical church have, why doesn’t he also point out the deviant nature of the modern female as well as just as many of them are out to use men these days as the most lecherous of men in regards to the opposite sex.
Seems to me the Reformed perspective does not make a distinction between the degree of total depravity to be found between the sexes.
Are not both genders possessed by the same sin nature seeking to maximize its own debased desires?
Another troublesome comment was regarding how men should be willing to die for women.
Such should only be the case if the man has a wife and family for in the Bible it says a man should love his wife as Christ loved the church; not that men are to feel this way towards every gal that comes along.
For if I am not married, no woman has pledged fealty unto me as the church has done Christ.
Rather than women and children first when it comes to getting into the lifeboats, shouldn’t it be women WITH children first primarily for the sake of the children rather than for the benefit of the woman?
Why is the life of some single woman anymore valuable than that of a single man?
Frankly, unless one has volunteered for military service, one should not be expected to die for someone else’s family, especially if the woman in question has no emotional connection to you.
For while the father has a primal instinctual need to preserve his line, the single man has no such vested genetic interest. Thus once the children are aboard, why shouldn’t the women wait in line like everybody else?
Edmund Burke once said that in order to love my country, my country must be lovely. Likewise, in order to die for a woman, they must be worth dieing for and frankly nowadays, most of them are not worth the trouble.
