The Issues We Do To Girls

Intercourse sells. It may well be tough to visualize a church harnessing this common advertising procedure for church development, but that’s precisely what Mark Driscoll did in Seattle in the early 2000s. No matter if condemning the Western erosion of manhood or elevating women as Christian pornographic beliefs, preaching from the Mars Hill pulpit combined harmful cultural messages with biblical theology in the identify of forming males, ladies, and households for God. And, like Mark’s marketing campaign against diminished manhood, when sexual intercourse offered in church, both adult men and ladies arrived up brief.

In this episode of The Increase and Slide of Mars Hill, host Mike Cosper addresses the femininity, concern, and fantasy that fueled discussions all around gender and womanhood at Mars Hill. With delicate care, he unpacks the reactionary stream of sexuality that emerged at Mars Hill and exposes the struggle for authority and electric power beneath Mark Driscoll’s classic sermons on womanhood and sex. Cosper explores what transpires when phrases intended to secure girls conclude up hurting them and how theology about headship and submission can generate worry and disgrace when wielded by the completely wrong hands. If you’ve observed Mark’s famed viral videos or read the sermon sound bites, tune in to this episode for the fuller story.
