Both God and Paul are definitely "traditionalist" in accordance with the Word of God. But as we have seen in past articles the Anglican/Episcopalian churches have long since ditched the Bible in favour of the abominations and the satanic Liberal religion. Women cannot go into the pulpit nor become "bishops" - Not because of human attributes - But because God will not use them there. 1Tim 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Gen 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."
It is a modern problem that Left leaning Liberalists are taking more control over bureaucratic facilities. But having said that I noticed my son responded better to private education than he did to state schools. The actual product in overall education was better and more productive in the child, than the state provided. Alas money talks!!! The rich get richer and the poor get stuffed is the political position of politicians in the UK, hence the institutions suffer bad management.

Frank, Ouch! Sorry! I apologize for not being clear
Maybe this will help When I post to someone by name, in this case you, other people also read the post so please don't take my posts as any kind of attack or accusation but more along the line of speaking to you 'generically'
The issue with this chaplain is an involved one. You'd be right to say if he went into chaplaincy with eyes open ... that is one thing. If the military changed the rules on him that is another
BUT I will say this I appreciate the courage of Darrell Waltrip to say knowing what he was going to say and then saying what he did in front of the then President Obama and his wife.
‚Äú‚ÄėUndeniable‚Äô is not alone in its findings regarding religious hostility. International Christian Concern (ICC), a global watchdog group that monitors prevalent types of religious persecution, included America for the first time in its yearly ‚ÄėHall of Shame‚Äô report published in January 2017,‚ÄĚ the report said.
‚ÄúTo deny that religious freedom is in crisis in America is to deny the obvious,‚ÄĚ the report explains. ‚ÄúAnd yet there are deniers. Ironically, they include those who launch the very attacks that have caused the crisis itself.‚ÄĚ
The report, in its public arena chapter, cites the state of Georgia‚Äôs attack on Christian speech by Eric Walch, who was terminated for serving his church as a lay preacher, and the case of Barton v. City of Balch Springs in which officials told seniors at a senior center they could not pray before their meals.
While the report reveals ‚Äúthat attacks on religious liberty continued to increase ‚Ä¶ this survey also shows that those persons and organizations who stand up for religious liberty win when they fight.‚ÄĚ
, ‚ÄúAs more and more Americans become aware of the growing attacks on religious liberty and learn about what their rights are, they can stand and turn back the tides of secularism and hostility that have so eroded religious liberty"

If God 'calls' you to a mission in the chaplaincy or to head hunters in the Amazon for that matter; - Would you trust God to have done 'sufficient' research to ensure His task was carried out?
Is this about trust/faith? Are there no-go areas for God?
"An Air Force chaplain has posted a blog saying Christian service members who support religious liberty serve the Constitution 'and not Christ.'"
"He contends that Christians serving in the military ‚Äúserve Satan‚ÄĚ if they support other service member‚Äôs rights to practice their own faiths"
The chaplain is right, sort of. They *think* they are serving the Constitution and not Christ. But they are serving neither. It's what happens after years of false teaching about the first amendment.
This would be much less of an issue if the anti-Christian courts who misread and mis-apply the first amendment, had the same understanding of what the founders meant by "free exercise of religion" as they did. Even what they meant by religion is muddied. It certainly did not open the gates to all religions. No right was intended by it to worship trees, fat statues, cows, or any false gods. A little research would help, but the anti-Christians rely on ignorance as much as deception.
Now the chaplains have to follow the rules, but the rules are based on faulty understanding, deliberately promoted, imo.

I can see ,after reading the book, a lot of the attraction of going too far down the " conspiracy " route- Earlier on , I linked in Jason Cooley's recent corrective on this & laughed as he in his message noted the Lord can even save the transgendered Michele Obama.
The Lord wants our energy devoted to facts !
But a few fun refs to " building 7" or " TWA 800" can open some minds to the conspiracy to tell them the whole universe is the result of an explosion of nothing resulting in rocks that , after billions of years of rain - created IPhones.
Flat earth compared to Big Bang atheism? The atheists have the BIGGER delusion illusion.
I point out my geocentric perspective with background knowledge that " moderns" think there is NO center ANYWHERE to the entire universe!!. ( they do the panCentric / ACentric dance to deny the FACT that red shift/ blue shift point to our solar system being the center of the universe. Too " Gen 1ish " for them. )

Sorry Jim, I have no clue what you are trying to say, as I said, I am not trying to garner a discussion on eschatology.
My objective was not to promote premillianilism or speak against any other eschatological viewpoints. I believe it is an area where even though Christians disagree they can still enjoy fellowship around the things of God. The discussion goes far deeper than just the one branch of systematic theology.
I was showing the truth of what I said at the end of my 9/20/17 9:50 PM post and the beginning of my 9/20/17 1:50 PM post.
The website from which penned got the inaccurate headline shares her eschatological viewpoint. I surmise that she more than likely didn't listen to the sermon excerpt. Applying the line of thinking they used on John MacArthur would be the same as if they put the following headline on Acts 16
***Gospel writer says you can be saved just by being in a place where an earthquake occurs!!***
Again, this is why one should not base your understanding of another's viewpoint based upon the interpretation of it by those who despise its teaching. They simply misrepresent it.
Right ! &as they DO NOT Maths indicates sphericity!
I finished the interesting book that was linked early on in this thread Moorman summarizes my take - " red herring kind of argument designed to divert from the facts of the case. It does not square with the facts. The Bible does not teach a flat earth. There is no historical record that Europe ever believed in a flat earth. There is no history of Christians believing in a flat earth. The ancients saw the roundness of earth in eclipses. As early as 200 BC Erastothenes was able to measure the earth‚Äôs circumference. Ptolemy the premier astronomer of the ancient world knew that the earth was spherical. He pointed out that people living to the east saw the sun rise earlier, and how much earlier was proportional to how far east they were located. He also noted that, though all must see a lunar eclipse simultaneously, those to the east will see it as later, e.g. at 1 a.m., say, instead of midnight, local time. He also observed that on traveling to the north, Polaris rises in the sky. IMO "Proof That Our World Is Not a Moving Globe"book by Edward Hendrie Conflates Geocentricity's biblical basis with (To me) unconvincing flat earth & other "conspiracy" stuff
Watching ¬° on Noticias Telemundo! Kids trapped in crumpled school

Vision of destruction of Rev 6"14 the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

"One way to find out what a gene does in the developing embryo is to see what happens when it isn't working," said Kathy Niakan, a stem cell scientists who led the research at Britain's Francis Crick Institute.
"Now we have demonstrated an efficient way of doing this, we hope that other scientists will use it to find out the roles of other genes."
She said her hope was for scientists to decipher roles of the key genes human babies need to develop successfully. This could then improve IVF treatments for infertile couples &also help docs killing understand why so many pregnancies fail
"It may take many years to achieve such an understanding, our study is just the first step," Niakan sssaid.
Niakan's team decided to use it to stop a key gene from producing a protein called OCT4, which normally becomes active in the first few days of human baby development.
They spent more than a year optimizing their various techniques using mouse embryos and human embryonic stem cells in lab dishes, before starting work on human babies.
To inactivate OCT4, they used CRISPR/Cas9 to change the DNA of 41 human embryos. After 7 days, baby was murdered and the babies were analyzed.
After an egg is fertilized, it is a baby- a unique Human.

The topic of charter schools, a controversy that's followed DeVos since her appointment within the Trump administration, came up more than once. DeVos says she wants more school choice, while Joel says he doesn't want to see public school funds going to something that might not have as much accountability.
"Public education is all kids," he said. "With limited state resources and federal resources I think it's extremely important that they stay focused in the public sector."

Nutter & Moore wrote: The flood standard is intended to protect the federal government‚Äôs most important asset: our nation‚Äôs citizens. Flooding continues to be the deadliest natural disaster in the United States, taking 155 lives last year. The historic floods last month in West Virginia that killed more than 20 people serve as a somber reminder of the need to prepare for Mother Nature‚Äôs wrath...
The standard also ensures that in an era of rising deficits and tight budgets, tax dollars are spent on projects that will not merely be washed away in the next storm. The rules establish consistent guidelines based on up-to-date science on flooding while protecting federal investments in an effort to ensure that limited federal resources are not wasted. While many Americans may think flooding is only a problem for coastal regions prone to hurricanes and tropical storms, it is far more widespread than that and can devastate any state or region across the country. In just the past five years, all 50 states have experienced flood damage.
