I had an interesting exchange today on Twitter with popular blogger and non-divisiveness guru Rachel Held Evans.
Now, let’s lay aside the fact that the eternal economic subordination of Christ to the Father has been recognized by all orthodox theologians since the Council of Chalcedon in 451 A. D. My first thought at being called heretic on Twitter by Rachel Held Evans was confusion. I mean, I thought we were just supposed to love and not divide over doctrine? It’s only angry, conservative, evangelical, racist, misogynist, homophobic white men with entitlement complexes who throw around the “H” bomb! (She has since tweeted me to the effect that she did not call me a heretic. She only said that I was communicating heresy. OK, semantics.) “Dude”, certainly not something you would expect from the post-evangelical, progressive, millenial spokeswoman.
Moral of the story? Snarky rebel bloggers like Rachel Held Evans should leave theologizing to the theologians, and they just might learn something. (Yes, even complementarianism.)
