Paul's Passing Thoughts

A Discussion About Voddie

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on February 22, 2012

We don’t want to think that there is a demon behind every bush, but in our day, it’s probably true. In fact, the apostles seemed to say it would be.

I’m hoping the leader in your fourth point you refer to is Voddie. I have been digesting all that I can from him and it seems that he is correctly expounding Biblical truth. Am I correct? If not, whom is it that you speak of and what do you think about Mr. Baucham?

Ray,

Yes, I was speaking of Voddie. I haven’t rendered final judgement on him for my own consumption, but his take on father/daughter relationships is totally out to lunch. I mean, just out there. My wife, Susan, had a VERY close relationship with her father, and I have a VERY close relationship with my daughter. We discussed this–the guy is just dead wrong. First, he is calling on fathers to overcome their own consciences (uncomfortable feelings which surely include the conscience) to have a touching relationship with their daughters. He threw 1Cor 10:28-30 and Rom14:23 completely to the wind on this one. I mean, for crying out loud, at least mention it due to the fact that anything that is not done in faith is sin. I also find what is becoming known as the “lap-dance video” to be just downright creepy. Susan shared with me concerning an incident with her dad that occurred when she was 7. She attempted to crawl up on her dad’s lap and her dad stopped her and said, “No Susan, you are a big girl now. Big girls don’t sit on daddies lap.” AND did that effect their relationship? HARDLY! Till this day, he is her hero bar none save Jesus Christ.

Furthermore, and don’t miss this, the anti-pedophile folks have to be going totally nuts on this one. From Susan’s perspective, if uncle Willie wants her to sit on his lap she’s thinkin’ : “What a minute here, if daddy says that big girls don’t sit on laps, and I can’t sit on daddy’s lap–I sure aint’ sittin’ on uncle willies lap!” Furthermore, Susan brought up the following point that isn’t exactly an epiphany: “When you sit on a man’s lap, the girls thigh or behind is making a pressed contact with the man’s genitals.” Duh!

Baucham’s dead wrong on this one, and creepily so, and thinking back on the movie “Courageous,” I see this theme propagated there as well (the “cult of daddy” ?) I will stop here because more study is needed on this and I don’t want to speak out of school, and I stand ready to be corrected on this by those speaking to the subject at hand, but this is indicative of exactly what my point was in the post: teachers can look really good initially and suck you into “who knows what.” The guy is a hero in the church that Susan and I are visiting, and initially, he was looking super to me. In our day, Christians must learn to shoot first and ask questions later. We don’t want to think that there is a demon behind every bush, but in our day, it’s probably true. In fact, the apostles seemed to say it would be.

    It is actually worse.

    Here is the key claim:

    “A lot of men are leaving their wives for younger women because they yearn for attention from younger women. And God gave them a daughter who can give them that.”

    That is what a daughter is for? Attention given to daddy?

    Here is the video clip:

    Uh Paul, wouldn’t older men “yearning” for “attention” from a “younger woman” be a sin? Shouldn’t we think there is something inherently wrong with that?. yet, Voddie teaches it as totally normal for a “man”.

    Sicko stuff. But quite normal in the Patriarchy movement.

      Lydia,

      Ya, on that part of the video, I can only tell you a parable. True story. When my mom and dad were flying over the Bermuda triangle in their private plan in the middle of the day, everything went black. I mean, “can’t see your hand in front of your face black.” Luckily, my dad was an excellent pilot who was very apt at flying by instruments, and they flew in that darkness for 90 minutes. Dad never talked about it when the lights went on, OR EVER. ya, I heard that part, but my mind didn’t acknowledge it–too weird.
