A Little Poetic Justice

For those of you who are not reading twitter or following all the comments on Anthony Bradley’s blog, you will be astounded to see that this very same gentleman wrote a great article one year ago (almost to the day) for World magazine called “Libel is not Love” in which he chastises Christians for doing the very thing he is now engaged in doing to my husband. And the amazing irony is that he is taking Rachel Held Evans to task for going after Mark Driscoll! The world goes round.

He says, “My concern is how Christians handle conflict with other Christians in public.”

Our concern as well, Dr. Bradley.

  1. Enough! Get some new content! This name calling and defending over an issue that I admit I had no interest in in the first place! Even if you are righteously justified in your anger, your audience wants to read a blog with fresh perspectives on a variety of topics!

  2. Thanks for sharing this Nancy! Poetic Justice indeed!

    I for one appreciate the content you have been sharing, especially your fresh perspective on this topic. 😉

  3. Comments almost always bug me. For many reasons. But mostly because people tend to put into typing (for the entire Internet world to see) words and manner of speaking which they would never (or so I would hope) say face-to-face to the person they are commenting to. Some people have personally met the person in question, but most not. And this is another problem–the annonymity that the Internet provides. Shouting “enough!” in writing may be acceptable to some, but I would hope they would never shout that in person to someone possibly their elder, and to as lovely and respectable a person as Nancy Wilson. And yes, I know what I am talking about. Ok, I’m done. 😉

  4. I don’t know which is more depressing – Dr. Bradley’s witch hunt, or the fact that he doesn’t know how to spell complementarianism.

    Third contender for Most Depressing Thing: the fact that anyone who politely disagrees with his treatment of your husband is accused of ‘tribalism’ on his blog.

    But on the whole, I’m going with spelling problem.

  5. Nancy, Bekah, Heather, and Rachel,

    Thank you for being an encouraging example of how not to be easily offended. You all have rationally, with wit and humor, with intelligence and sweet spice, shown me something wonderful about facing particular types of adversity God brings into our lives. You have been faithful both to God and your family. :)

    I’m also thankful for the strength you’ve demonstrated – a reminder that having a submissive and gentle spirit doesn’t mean God won’t enable me by His Spirit to be a dangerous woman when He wants me to be!

    Much love in Christ to you!

  6. Mrs. Wilson and all,

    I remember reading that World piece when it came out, and my husband and I were at Covenant Seminary when Dr. Bradley was an instructor there. I’ve been so disappointed (and honestly, a bit astonished!) by his blog posts.

    You and your family have been a blessing to me through your writings. Maybe this makes me a tribalist, but I hope you enjoy your party! (And I also hope that Dr. Bradley will change his mind and talk to your husband.) Blessings!

  7. I have also appreciated the dialog that has gone on over the last week or so, over all these issues. It has been lesson after lesson, and I for one have been taught a great deal. Thanks!

  8. I must say that in all of the “Wilson” writings I’ve had the privilege to read, I’ve never found anything but grace, grace, and more grace. I’ve found freedom, not oppression. Thank you.
