“Proud” To Be “Intimidating”?

This headline from Christianity Today’s puff-podcast promoting its editor’s new book speaks volumes about what is now celebrated among evangelicals:

Katelyn Beaty: Despite the Cost, I’m Proud to Be an ‘Intimidating’ Woman.
I hope the church can be proud of me, too.

Compare this with the Apostle Peter’s words under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

…let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. (1Peter 3:4)


Christian sister, which words are you “proud” to have define you?

Gentle, quiet, and precious?
