Women's Issues: Modesty

2020-11-2530:021

Don't cause a brother to stumble. It's a message most of us heard, at least if we grew up in purity culture. But is this what Scripture teaches about modesty? Is it just about sex and helping men stay pure? This episode delves into the issue of the "weaker brother", modesty as humility, and honoring the imago dei in ourselves and others.

What role can women play in the body of Christ? This is a topic of much debate in the church today. This episode breaks down some of the hard passages on women's authority, leadership and speaking.

In this episode we discuss the hot topics of marriage for women: Complementarian versus egalitarian, what submission really is, if women are more “easily deceived”, and more. 
Is singleness a second class status? Why does the church treat singles like they're in a holding pattern? What does the Bible say about sexual desire, masturbation, and the value of unmarried life? We delve into all these questions and more in this episode of the Women's Issues series.   Resources mentioned:  Sam Allberry Lore Wilbert Nancy Demoss Wolgemot
In this episode we dive into the mommy wars: the toxic culture surrounding motherhood and its decisions. Specifically, this episode deals with asceticism and our view of suffering in motherhood. How does God sustain us in this season? Why do we act as if certain decisions are "holier" than others? Audio taken from IGTV video on Phylicia's Instagram.
In this episode of our women’s issues series, we talk about the Scriptural approach to breastfeeding, but more so, how the gospel dismantles the mommy wars over this sensitive and often shame-filled issue. This topic is explored further in the Motherhood episode coming next. 
Plato's concept of dualism influences the church even today - without us knowing. How many of us see our bodies as "bad", souls as "good"? In this episode we break down why this view of the body not only isn't biblical, it wasn't exemplified by Christ!   Mentioned in this episode:   Love Thy Body by Nancy Pearcey: https://amzn.to/2QTBT6Y   After Class Podcast series on sex: https://afterclass.libsyn.com   My Jewish Learning on the body:  https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/lets-get-physical/

Ever wonder why the Catholic Bible has more books than Protestant versions? This episode will answer that question and many more!

Why would the deaf need their own Bible? They can read like everyone else. Did you mean the blind?
