Something we need to be clear on: When one speaks of different "ontology" for men and women, they either do not know what ontology means, or they have changed the meaning, or they are in serious error in their anthropology.

This language is a departure for orthodoxy.
It has consequences. If men and women are ontologically different, then for whom did Christ die? Did he die as a man?
Or did he die as a human?
Did he redeem man?
Or did he redeem humans?

If men and women are ontologically different, men are saved by Christ, women by submission
If you think that CBMW is about order in the home, think again.
It is a serious departure from orthodoxy under the guise of fighting worldliness.
At bottom, it is ugly and contrary to the gospel.
Does our salvation lie in "Biblical manhood" or in "biblical womanhood" or does it lie in our union with Christ by faith, whether male or female?

It makes a difference. One is the gospel. The other is not.

At the heart of Xian nationalism is a hopeless contradiction. This is what we saw yesterday. Guns, violence and force under the banner "Jesus Saves
So here is the contradiction- does Jesus save? Or are we saved by law? It is the same old problem that Paul dealt with in Galatians
How is the kingdom of God built and what is its nature?
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight."
Christian nationalism hopes to bring about the kingdom by guns and violence and ruthless politicians. The only way any earthly ruler can enforce laws is by force. Jesus knew that, and he set his kingdom diametrically opposed to every kingdom of the earth.
