A few months ago in March a very important book was published dealing with the organism gap between women and men within the Evangelism/Pentecostal church. The book, The Great Sex Rescue: The Lies You’ve Been Taught and How to Recover What God Intended by Sheila Wray Gregoire, Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach, and Joanna Sawatsky, is a MUST read for pretty much anyone and everyone. And by that, I mean – husbands stop what you are doing and read this book!
Though I’ve been around the Evangelism/Pentecostal church for all my life, I have been on the edges of the church world in that I don’t watch Christian TV, go to marriage seminars, or pay attention to any of the big name pastors/celebrities out there. My interests has been in the early church, Celtic Christianity, spiritual formation, history, and the like. Hence I just didn’t hear about a lot of the patriarchal marriage advice being taught by so many people throughout the church. Now that I know, I am very, very upset and just floored that Christian pastors are promoting marital rape and other horrible things. Yeah, it is that bad!!
I share more about my thoughts on the book and the topic in the related YouTube video linked below (note that it is age-restricted due to the nature of the content).
The bottom is this: love one another and don’t force anyone to anything they don’t want to do. Period.
