Note that the woman speaking has been teaching other women for many decades. We can get a sense of what she teaches other women by what she teaches in the youtube video:
- Complementarian rules are good because they feel good (to her).
- If men are good (nice) enough, women will want to be complementarians because it will feel good.
- Pastors who don’t lead the way she tells them to lead are sinning because they make her feel bad.
- Women in the PCA aren’t tempted to usurp the role of men. If they experienced such a temptation they would simply go to a different denomination and usurp the roles of men.
- Women who go to other denominations and usurp the roles of men are only doing so because men in those denominations have forced them to do so (they are playing golf instead of leading the church, etc).
Simply put, a woman’s feelings rule and there is no sin of feminist rebellion. If there is a problem, it is because men are sinning. If a woman feels bad about what the Bible says, it is proof that a man has somehow sinned.
As Pastor Bayly puts it:
Mrs. Mary Beth McGreevy’s leadership is needed at her church session meetings. Her pastor told her so. Now then dear fuddy-duddy going 40 miles per hour in front of her, pull over. She knows where God wants her and when she’s scheduled to be there, and you’re in her way.
These are the sorts of things on the heart of Covenant Seminary grad Mary Beth McGreevy which she “shares” in a video posted on the Presbyterian Church in America’s in-house promo publication titled byFaith. McGreevy is pretty and sweet and cheerful and puts a great face on the “women can do anything a non-ordained man can do” Kellerite feminism called “complementarianism” that now owns the PCA.
No pastor wants to criticize women like this. McGreevy tells us “you can’t put women in a box anymore” and who would want to? Women are pretty. If mother is happy, everyone’s happy.
If McGreevy’s pastor is terrified of telling her no in matters relating to his own church, imagine how her pastor would respond to her husband telling her no.
- Why there is a controversy about women teaching/preaching Scripture and doctrine.
- She holds an authority you cannot hold.
