A Good Blog: A Cry for Justice

A Cry for Justice – https://cryingoutforjustice.blog/ – is a blog that primarily concerns domestic violence within the Evangelical Christian Church.

We should read it, because Jesus hears the cry for justice that His little sheep gives.

We should be like Him.

I discovered this blog, while looking for Sam Powell’s work. His material A Godly Abuser? Really? — a reblog from MyOnlyComfort by Ps Sam Powell is worth the time to read.

The initial part of his blog:

I recently read this comment on “A Cry for Justice“:

You would be amazed at how many pastors in thriving ministries abuse their wives, are involved in pornography or other sexual sins. Men of God are not perfect.

Really?

I continue to be astounded at these kinds of things. A “godly pastor who abuses his wife” is a lot like saying “a reprobate Christian”, a “square circle”, or “waterless water”. It makes no sense.

Since Christians are the salt of the earth, it is no wonder that words have become meaningless in our society. Post-modernism isn’t just something that “others” believe. It started right in the church! If this statement is true: “a godly minister who abuses his wife”, then words have no meaning. If a man can self-identify as a Christian even though he has all the marks of the devil, then how can we protest if a man wants to self-identify as a woman? Isn’t it the same thing?

But if we want to uphold reality, we have to say, “No; you are a man. You have all the parts of a man, and your self-identity is false.”

Don’t we then also have to say, “No. You are not a godly man. You are not a Christian. You have all the parts of a son of Belial. Your self-identity is false”

I got started on looking for his other material after reading his recent post on Lamb’s Reign, Co-Heirs.

His post starts off like this:

—<Quote begins>—

Have you seen the “trend” going around, where fathers are groomin…oops, I mean “training” their daughters to serve men—cleaning after them, cooking for them, serving them at the table, etc?

It is really stomach–churning. But far worse, it isn’t Christianity. Instead, maybe it is God’s desire that we teach our daughters to be more and more like Jesus—perfecting their gifts, using those gifts in their communities, learning to speak without fear, and growing in wisdom and stature.

It is true that women, like all of humanity, are called to serve. Men are also called to serve. It isn’t a gender role thing, it’s what it means to be like Christ.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them.
Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.
And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave—
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:25–28)

But mutual service in Christ isn’t what I’m talking about when I mention this trend. Rather, I’m talking about the fathers and mothers that teach their daughters that they are called to cook, clean, and pick up after their fathers and brothers. Ultimately, they are to serve, while the men are to be served.

“The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve”

That is God’s attitude.

If Christian men followed the example of their Lord, this world would be a very different place.

The change starts with us, our repentance, our restitution to those we have wronged, and our renewed and actual obedience to God Above.

It’s time for a change ,from God into our hearts, and from our hearts to all the world, including the nations, their laws, and their societies..

And the restoration, the Christian reconstruction of society must starts with the repentance of Christian men before their Lord and Master.

It doesn’t begin somewhere out there, in some pagan university or rotten courthouse.

It begins here, our assemblies and our homes.

Our hearts, our souls, our minds.
