The fuss over Warhorn Media’s interview with Dalrock is dying down, at least for me. Everybody’s had their chance to speak and matters have devolved into each side doing their own theater. It was interesting that Pastor Tim Bayly came along and weighed in, however, because his defense of a old debate point actually made him look worse today. Because this is a separate issue from the actual interview, I make it a post on my blog. Quoting Bayly from the following link:
I like good back-and-forth, but not ever anonymously—particularly when for fifteen years I have suffered much for the Name of the Lord Jesus and His Words and know how privileged I am for doing so and how much strength it lends to the work to which all believers are called.
Bayly claims to be a super-Christian survivor of the front lines of spiritual war. A dubious claim for any clergyman with a pension and book deal but he gives an example:
…At the same time as I was writing, a student at IU decided to go into the Navy as an officer responsible for nuclear reactors. I loved her and told her she should not do so. We’re still friends and she’s always known I think she was not obeying God in this. Full stop.
This is just one of many, many examples of my fulfilling my responsibility as husband, father, and pastor to say “no” to women, and rebuke them.
I agree with Bayly that Snowflake did evil in the sight of God. Original Sin’s curse upon Eve was that she would envy men their “male privilege”, to use modern terminology, and Reactor Officer is a top-status job in the Navy. She’s obviously feral and seeking authority over men, not to mention almost certainly unqualified for that kind of highly technical work.
God does not want a woman to have authority over men. That’s an ironclad rule for the Church and the exceptions permitted in the secular world, for example Lydia the cloth merchant and widows continuing their husband’s business affairs, are not comparable to a military officer’s power of life and death over his troops. It’s not acceptable to believe God hates female leadership in the Church and approves of it everywhere else. But how to handle Snowflake’s rebellion against male headship?
Bayly: “God doesn’t want you to do that.”
Snowflake: “I refuse to obey God!”
Bayly: “I still love you, just like Jesus does! Let’s be friends.”
Pastor GunnerQ: “God doesn’t want you to do that.”
Snowflake: “I refuse to obey God!”
GunnerQ: “We’re done, you disobedient witch! How dare you claim to be a Christian yet live as God’s enemy! I will have you publicly shamed. Don’t put one foot in my church ever again.”
See the difference? One of us acts like God is Real and the other acts like Love is God. This is why Churchianity is utter, total filth. It won’t ever tell a woman no and even when the word “no” is actually spoken, consequences are prohibited.
I don’t care about Bayly authoring a General Assembly statement in 2002 or whenever. People can change over fifteen years. By his example today, however, Pastor Tim Bayly is as Cuck as he ever was. He should have read the riot act to Snowflake, then when she proceeded in feminist rebellion against God, held her up as a bad example to the general Church and sent her a courtesy link to guarantee humiliation.
Biblical Precedent, Mister Oedipus of 1 & 2 Corinthians.
Pastor Bayly rebuked a woman for disobeying God and when she didn’t change her evil behavior, bragged about still being friends with her.
I’ll end with this quote from the same link:
One last thing: for fifteen years I’ve been online saying that the only thing the feminists have given men is the right to cry, and Jesus already gave us this right.
The definitive behavior of Churchians is self-sabotage. Bayly is probably trying to be funny but saying feminism is useless because Jesus already gave men the right to cry like women is… very consistent with Bayly not laying down the thunder on Reactor Officer Snowflake.
For the sake of God, male humanity, the United States Navy and her own soul, I hope Snowflake washed out of the nuclear program in shame and dishonor.
