Progressive beliefs are beliefs that tell women and men to avoid biblical advice when dealing with major spiritual or social dillemas. Dillemas such as pedophilia in the church youth group, gambling among the preachers, harassment towards and abused wife by other church members, acceptance of LGBT or other sexual impurity practices into church "doctrine," adultery or infidelity problems so on and so forth. Progressive beliefs say that other religious values outside of christian based beliefs can save men from trouble and trials in life. Even if those religious beliefs or non-religious beliefs include terrorism and threats against the general populace.
1. Jesus said, "Love your enemy." That means love.......redeems the soul. Not because what the offender did was "good" in God's eyes, but because LOVE heals the hurt person in return.
2. Progressive beliefs encourage ignorance of the scripture. No meditation of scripture "neccesary" to solve life problems. In reality, the scripture ENCOURAGES meditation on scripture to heal from hurt and pain from others in this life.
3. Progressive beliefs encourage sexual impurity. They believe that sexual impurity is a symptom and symbol of love. In actuality, it is a symbol of "loafing" from biblical application and study. Yes, among the progressive couple, there will be symptoms of abuse, control and manipulation cycles. So sexuality is not a foundation which is reliable.
4. Progressive beliefs encourage divorce in all cases of domestic problems. Even in cases where the offending party is clearly not right in the mind and heart in the first place. It doesn't consider that there may be a history or natural cause to the problem in the first place. Hence avoidance of forgiveness. And avoidance of necessary therapy
5. Progressive beliefs believe in LAWYERS. Lawyers solve riddles. Lawyers solve puzzles. LAwyers will heal your life of all pain.
6. Progressive beliefs tell the worshiper to quit worship of Jesus. Just stop all symptoms of being a Christian. No more hymn singing in public. No more rejoicing. No more consideration for a better life in heaven.
7. Progressive beliefs don't believe that God is the creator and Judge of his creation. The belief in the progressive is to believe that social manipulation strategies somehow remove "sin" from this world. Rather in conservative biblical beliefs, prayer and consideration of scripture eliminates deceptions and overcome evil in this world.
8. Progressive beliefs do not believe that God provides in bad circumstances in life. Yes, a neglected spouse, can get strength and healing and encouragement from other people who were once a part of the person's life, when the neglected party seeks humility. Perhaps someone else understands, while the neglectful spouse does not. If the neglected spouse "divorces" from the offending spouse, the neglected spouse will loose support system.
9. Progressive beliefs do not admit that even those men in institutions who work in such institutions of "higher learning" or "healing and hope" or "marketing strategies" etc etc. have problems. They have the potential to become addicted and to attempt to control others in a manipulative way, just as much as anyone else.
10. Progressive beliefs do not admit that the bible shows us exactly what to look for in an abusive person! Psalms and Proverbs are clear examples of this. Read psalms and proverbs, learn about the behaviour of a "false accuser" and also learn what signs to look for in intimidating and foolish behaviour in men. Descriptions of what "evil" behaviour looks like in men are also given through the bible stories. http://www.clarkprosecutor.org/html/domviol/what.htm
All in all, the bible is the resource and hope for women in terrible situations. It is also hope for men too. To help men understand right from wrong. But if men do not want to rely on scripture, they perish!
