Christian feminism and Peter

Scot McKnight has a post that shows his insights.
    Hermeneutics: many feminists would simply see this text as condescending and oppressive; evangelical Christian feminists would tend to see the text as containing enduring insights into how husbands ought to conduct themselves. Traditionalists see something permanent here. They are the ones who most need to hear Peter’s very words: living considerately and bestowing honor.

    Studies show that husbands and wives who are more egalitarian have less issues with power and abuse.

    The point is that hierarchical relationships create more opportunity for the abuse of power.
He soon had to close the thread. The debate became unpleasant and yet McKnight is a very soft-spoken man.

Women need to be empowered more in general. They need to use their looks for good rather than use them for personal selfish persuits. When you get a moment check out: .
