Signs of an Abusive Partner

You would think that any organization bent on match-making would thoroughly educate it’s members in what to look for as a warning side of potential trouble. I find that with Christianity, people are pretty much left to their own devices – which might explain some of the difficulties they face. For one, I don’t remember […]


Complementarians tell me that the pre-fall gender roles was glorious perfect headship and flawless submission. They tell me that sin distorted them.
