SWBTS Head Paige Patterson Apologizes to Women for 'Inappropriate' Language
Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, issued on Thursday an apology for his past statements, including how he described advice he gave in a domestic violence situation as well as a sermon illustration involving a "built" teen girl.

"Pastoral ministry that occurred 54 years ago, repeated as an illustration in sermons on more than one occasion, as well as another sermon illustration used to try to explain a Hebrew word (Heb. banah 'build or construct,' Gen. 2:22) have obviously been hurtful to women in several possible ways," he said in a statement published on the SWBTS website.

"I wish to apologize to every woman who has been wounded by anything I have said that was inappropriate or that lacked clarity. We live in a world of hurt and sorrow, and the last thing that I need to do is add to anyone's heartache. Please forgive the failure to be as thoughtful and ...

...School trustees announced early Wednesday morning that Patterson, one of the most powerful and influential figures in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), had become the seminary’s president emeritus overnight, appointing theology dean Jeffrey Bingham as interim president.

After deliberation that went on past 3 a.m., the board voted him into paid retirement, complete with an on-campus home where he and his wife can live as theologians-in-residence....

Sounds like Paige got a golden parachute.

At least this particular leader can come forth with an apology and say he was wrong. That's a good step toward repentance. So often we see people hide behind their own victimhood or self-righteousness and not accept blame.

First, let me say that I am not making light of women who are truly abused. Christian men should love their wives as Christ loves His church - PERIOD. So, no naysayers; I will not respond to them.

But, it seems odd to me that the world is finally starting to recognize the abuse that women have and are suffering. Christ died 2000 years ago and the scripture regarding how married couples and others in society are supposed to love one another were written some time ago. So, why did this relatively easy concept take so long to reveal “to this extent”? What other moral mandates and the failure of even Christians to adhere to them, are just now coming to the surface? Is the church and society finally waking up? Why is it that this revelation concerning women has sort of piggybacked societal feminism and all of the complaints against men in the media, politics and on universities?

I also noticed that in reading this article, although I just skimmed it, that no scripture admonitions were given regarding what was said to these ladies, unless someone wants to state Genesis 3:22.

Giving Christian counseling can be very difficult and although I am not a fan of Paige Patterson, I can understand how this could have come to pass.

Often, Christian leaders do not have a group of friends who keep one accountable. No, a leader will use a tired old storyline to make a point. And often, it’s more about “me” and nothing about Him. The entrenchment of leaders who have a public persona that is counter to a private would do well to be humble, trustworthy, kind and in pursuit of Holiness.

It's inevitable when insufficient lines are drawn concerning a Christian profession. Sinners will behave like sinners and saints like saints.
