I’m gonna try something a little different here: I’m going to let the comments be the post. That’s right – I know I have more readers out there than the courageous few who’ve lent their voice so far, and I’m hoping ya’ll will turn out for this, the first of what may be many open forum posts to come.
That said, I’m going to give a short prompt below, and if you have an opinion or any take at all on what I bring up, share it in the comments below, because I’m genuinely curious as to what sort of thoughts ya’ll have on this topic.
So without further ado:
Men want something to believe; women want someone to believe.
Or, rephrased a bit:
GENERALLY SPEAKING, men believe something because it makes sense; women believe something because someone they deeply trust said it was so.
So I ask you, what do you think? Is this how it works, if not all of the time, then a sizable majority of the time? Do we see any evidence for this principle in Scripture?
And if it is so, how does this play into the idea of headship within a marriage relationship? Further, how does it, if at all, reflect the relationship of Christ and His bride, the Church?
Speaking as someone who does not have a dog in this fight and is willing to learn, I eagerly await your thoughts!
