If A Man Thinks That Women Should Be In Combat…

…he’s a wimp. Do you disagree? Dr. John Piper doesn’t care. Don’t believe me? Here’s the quote:

If I were the last man on the planet to think so, I would want the honor of saying no woman should go before me into combat to defend my country. A man who endorses women in combat is not pro-woman; he’s a wimp.

Dr. Piper goes on to spend a few sentences writing about his view on biblical manhood and womanhood. He states that

God wrote manhood and womanhood on our hearts. Sin ruins the imprint without totally defacing it. It tells men to be heavy handed oafs or passive wimps. It tells women to be coquetts or controllers. That is not God’s imprint. Deeper down men and women know it.
