Anti-Revolution Pt I: Infidel Jacobin Theories, Patriarchy in the WLC, Theological Supremacy  

 

Two things under full frontal assault by Jacobin Theories (besides the obvious death, burial, and resurrection of Christ) the Lord’s Day and Marriage

 

Critical note for critical theory, critical theorists always try to pit terms against one another, as in White Christian or White Evangelicals in order to make it easier to create an emotional response in the listener or reader. This is the Jacobin process known as the dialectic.

 

 

Interrogation of the Jacobin theories of feminism, gender, and queer studies

By the light of Scripture shows them to be false.

 

//Feminist/egalitarian and gender/queer studies critical methods in their own words (00:00- 43:38)

 

Problems with critical theory:

Attacking certainty and assurance

Attacking the perspicuity of scripture

Attacking the household codes

Attacks Theological assertions

Generates dissension, wrath, envy, discontent and malice

 

//Moving to practically engaging those who profess to be Reformed Egalitarians (43:39-63:22)

Feminist/Egalitarian/Gender Studies discussions currently in evangelicalism from clips of a panel with Michael Bird, Aimee Byrd, Kristin Du Mez, and Beth Allison Barr

 

//Colossians 3 has the solution to every Critical Theory (63:23-73:25)

Esther explodes the liberation feminist narrative

 

 

//Westminster Larger Catechism 118 (73:26-101:17)

Question 118
Why is the charge of keeping the sabbath more specially directed to governors of families, and other superiors?
The charge of keeping the sabbath is more specially directed to governors of families, and other superiors, because they are bound not only to keep it themselves, but to see that it be observed by all those that are under their charge; and because they are prone ofttimes to hinder them by employments of their own. (Exodus 20:10, Josh 24:15, Neh 13:15, 17, Jer 17:20, Exodus 23:12)

 

What is so offensive about Question 118 and WLC’s exposition of the fourth commandment?

 

Patriarchy (governors of families are superiors, those governors are clearly husbands and fathers)

Literal 6-day creation (no framework)

The Lord’s Day, aka the Christian Sabbath (first day of the week now WLC 115-121)

Propositional Logic

 

//Dabney’s “Practical Philosophy”

The Infidel Jacobin Theory

 

//Camille Paglia and Turretin’s Natural Theology (104:32-END)
