NeuroDiverse Christian Couples

  • Should Women be Silent with Bruce Fleming

    20 MAY. 2024 · Join Rev. Holmes and Dr. Holmes as they interview Bruce C.E. Fleming. This is our 3rd interview with Bruce an today we will discuss 1 Timothy and "let the women learn in silence." How does this reflect back to the creation of women and the role of women in the church world. About: Rev. Bruce C. E. Fleming holds three graduate and post-graduate degrees in theology: an M.Div. and Th.M. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a D.E.A. from the University of Strasbourg, France. Ordained by the Evangelical Free Church of America, he has been a pastor, professor of Practical Theology, and academic dean on the graduate-school level in French-speaking Africa. He has co-founded several churches and parachurch organizations. Bruce and his wife, Dr. Joy Elasky Fleming, have been married for more than 25 years and are the parents of Christy and Mark. They live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Rev. Bruce C. E. Fleming has written books on the topics discussed in this podcast. God did not curse Eve or limit women in any way. Sadly, modern translations of Genesis 3:16 make it look like God did both. God didn't curse Adam either, but God did speak to him in a way exactly parallel to the other rebel in the Garden of Eden, the serpent-tempter. And two curses were imposed by God because of them. People have made up many myths and stories about what supposedly happened in Eden. They make it seem like God cursed the woman and that she somehow deserved it. She didn’t. They make it seem like God instituted the man’s bad behavior toward his wife. God didn’t. The Bible tells us what really happened. This book is all about what God really said, especially in Genesis 3:16. When these chapters in Genesis are rightly understood, and we gain a true view of what God really said to the woman in Genesis 3:16, many New Testament passages can be reinvestigated. They, too, can be cleared away of the bias we find popping up in translations of and commentary on several key passages in the New Testament that look back to Genesis 2 and 3. This book is based on the episodes of Season One of The Eden Podcast https://tru316.com/

  • What Even IS Neurodiversity

    15 MAY. 2024 · Dan and the guys (Clay, Greg, Jeremy, & Mark) discuss their views of neurodiversity. What is it? Is this movement a good thing or not? How do you define it? Is the term useful? Dr. Holmes adds she prefers the Harvard Medical School definition of neurodiversity, which describes those with neurological differences such as autism, ADHD, learning differences and delays, and other developmental differences.
