“Pastor” Melts Purity Rings To Create Current-Year Golden Calf

Our satanic enemies are not content with simply violating divine law. They are compelled to mock and parody the holy things of God, bringing ever greater judgment upon themselves. It is hard to point to a more brazen example of this than the most recent stunt being pulled by the heavily tattooed pro-sodomy “pastor” Nadia Bolz-Weber.

From the Huffington Post:

“What should Christian feminists do with their old “purity” rings, symbols of a patriarchal theology that has harmed countless women?

Melt them down, says progressive Christian author and theologian Nadia Bolz-Weber, and create something completely new.

On Monday, Bolz-Weber issued a call on Twitter for people to send her those rings “for a massive art project.”

In certain evangelical Christian circles, the rings were given to young girls as symbols of a pledge they made to abstain from sex until marriage. But the rings ― and more broadly, the Christian purity culture of the 1990s and 2000s ― also shamed young girls into disconnecting from their bodies, Bolz-Weber argues.

With the help of artist Nancy Anderson, Bolz-Weber said she plans to melt down the rings that people send her and recast them as a “golden vagina.” She said that the project ― part of a promotion for Shameless, her upcoming book about sex and Christianity ― is about “reclamation” of women’s bodies.”

After women turn in their purity rings, they will be given an “impurity” ring and certificate.

Bolz-Weber must be biblically literate enough to understand that her actions clearly mimic those of Aaron when creating the golden calf in Exodus 32:

And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.  And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 32:2-4)

As we shudder at these blasphemies, let us take comfort in the sure promises of Scripture:

“[T]he Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8)
