    Hi Tim 🙂
    So, you’re never going to please everyone on social media. I am sorrry that the critical voices made yoou take your post down.
    You were addressing a different audience of women than the one’s who spoke up critically.
    You are absolutely correct that “a woman being less than who she is” won’t help a man grow — and the reality of that, is that it is not a word for women who don’t feel a woman’s job is to help men grow. But as plenty of women HAVE been indoctrinated that it is their job to help their husband’s grow by behaving such and such a way, your word would be a freeing step in a right direction for THOSE women.
    If you did anything “wrong” with social media, it was that you didn’t define your audience. You can preface a comment by defining the audience it is for: For instance: Women in complementarian marriages, I know I am not going to convince you that complementarianism is not a correct model, but I will just say this: if you are being less than who you are because you have been told that is how your husband will grow, I want you to know….
    Jesus spoke differently to different groups of people depending on “what they could receive.” Your egalitarian friends may be offended by what a complementarian friend can receive, but that complementarian person still needs to hear what you can say to them.
    Anyway, keep being all that YOU are, Tim, and don’t let someone tell you to be less than who YOU are just because it will not be well received by all audiences.

    I’ve seen your posts along those lines, Tim, and I take them as encouraging for what it’s worth.

    You did exactly right- you did what you needed within the boundaries of your own mental health and ability to manage the post.
    *hugs* Keep on being amazing. You are heard, and you are helping so many. I share your posts often with particular friends in mind, and I’m sure the Lord uses them to reach whomever he pleases. ❤

    Don’t let other people control you with their anger. If they get upset about something you’ve posted, that’s their problem, not yours. Clarify your intentions, if you must, and let that be the end of it. But don’t apologize and don’t take down your posts. You have a message that needs to be heard.
