The Damnable Non-Doctrine of Legalism How Creepy Conservative Christian Modesty Doctrines Harm Young Women

 

It should be noted, this woman grew up under the cultic teachings of William Branham. He was a complete whackjob, who, among other things, taught that women are the root of all sin because Eve seduced Adam. Fornication was the original sin, and therefore women are second-class citizens. I know this because I have to deal with these nutbars on the mission field here in Uganda.

 

That said, it is also applicable among Independent Baptists, whose strange, man-following teachings are often extra-biblical, and more cultural than Scriptural. Not all Independent Baptists are like this, not even most are (I'm not, and I'm an Independent Baptist), but it is strongly advocated by certain pressure groups within our so-called "Independent" collective, mostly within the orbit of certain Type A personalities with large congregations and hence large platforms for the dissemination of their opinions.

 

Unfortunately, "conservative" tends to mean "developed in the 70s or the 50s, which is where we ought to live". I agree that much about today's pop culture is not Godly, but we shouldn't be caustic and reactionary, and we certainly should not find ourselves pushing the traditions of men on our women and passing it off as Bible. It's chauvinistic, it's unscriptural, and it does not glorify God. All legalism ever does is create more sin, and bring free Christians into bondage once again to the law. It has to stop.
