It is routinely taught in the church (at least, in the church’s I have attended) and in bible studies that the example of wifely submission found in 1 Peter 3 should be ignored by women:
1 Peter 3:
Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
“Sarah is the example,” Pastors tell the ladies, “But you don’t have to go calling your husband ‘lord’ or being a *GASP* doormat!”

Despite my dislike for a lot of modern Christian music I still listen to Air1 radio on my drive to work (which is all of 5-10 minutes). I’ve learned to accept what the play as mostly “positive” music with some Jesus mixed in. In fact, their tagline is “The Positive Alternative”, alternative being code word for “Christian”.
One thing I have noticed a lot of lately, and not just on Air1, but with some other Christians as well, is the use of the term “reckless love” when describing the love of God. Exactly what does this mean, and why is the term being tossed around so much?

Have you heard of or seen so called “flat earthers” on the internet? The “Flat Earthers”, or FE’s from now on, are people in our modern day and age who believe that the Earth is flat, despite any and all evidence saying otherwise. The idea is that there is a vast conspiracy to control what people believe about the shape of the earth, and, thus, there are tons of manufactured images, video and accounts that have been created and maintained over the past several decades to keep people in the dark as to the TRUE shape of the planet earth.
Yes, I am serious.
I do not know the validity of this popular image, which supposedly recalls a Twitter conversation between Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and the Flat Earth Society:

I saw this meme earlier this week. Little did I know that I would have a fine opportunity to use it.
Found on Facebook regarding the death of famed physicist Stephen Hawking and the subsequent placement of his ashes in Westminster Abbey:
I still empathize with Stephen Hawking. He is getting to meet God now… He lived his life with major disability, I believe God is big enough to understand, and empathize with his questions. . They will be answered, and I am sure there is a path to God for Stephen, despite his lack of belief. His cynicism whether a God exists…
The response from another FB poster:

The bible tells us that God set an order to things between Himself, Christ, Man and woman in 1 Corinthians 11:3, which states:
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
Which means that, according to the word of God, we can look at the structure of authority like this:
