WORDS you will never read on Wartburgwatch.

1 Peter 3New King James Version (NKJV)

Submission to Husbands

3 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

Here's the post:

When writing the post, you have at least two options.

ONE: Deal with the Text.

TWO: Call John Piper the “soap bubble lady.” The “Deebs” [ cute sorority type nickname ] go with the latter; attacking John Piper.
All of the many commenters follow suite.
Will they attempt to deal with the Scripture? No
The “Deebs” and their commenters are very much people who view Scripture from the lens of our current, secular university culture.
Piper wants to view culture thru the Scriptures. And that's the difference.

[ An observation; ]
 John Piper is now 70, he's always been a small, scrawny guy;  likened physically to the campus nerd.  The "Deebs" are the popular sorority sisters and it is their pleasure to mock him; a 70 year old retired pastor who has actually never harmed them or spoken harshly of them.  This is not new.

So the "dissecting of Christian trends" so often becomes cyber-bullying by the "Deebs" and their fans.  That's how WartburgWatch rolls.
