This sermon is a follow-up to the sermon ‚ÄúThe Continued Egalitarian Attack upon Holy Scripture.‚ÄĚ Why does the acceptance of egalitarianism often lead to the acceptance of homosexuality? Because when you embrace the novel and perverted hermeneutic of the egalitarians ‚Äď you're embracing the very same hermeneutic employed by the so-called ‚ÄúChristian homosexuals.‚ÄĚ This sermon examines and repudiates the hermeneutic of both. There is much Scripture and history in this sermon. In closing, the sermon makes a defense for the created order of God. The sermon points out that for 1900+ years all of Christianity stood four-square against egalitarianism, birth control and homosexuality. But now, in the last 75 years, Christianity has accommodated itself to all three. MercySeat.net 54 min.
Great Sermon! Amen, Bro Trewhella!!
Judy, I believe you are deceived by the feminist spirit of the age which is nothing new. God told Eve the woman will always try to usurp the man's authority and it is running rampant today in the churches as well as the world.

Great Sermon! Judy, After trying the belittling approach by making condescending comments on my sermon titled A Refutation of the Debased Theology of a Monstrous Regiment of Christian Feminists, I see here that you try the "let's act like a theologian" approach. You mistakenly assert that gender-nuetral bibles are needed because of the English language (which is not true in and of itself) and then you proceed to cite I Tim. 3:1 as an example of men imposing the male gender upon the text. The truth is that the context makes clear that men are intended by virtue of the very next verse which states that the overseer must be "the husband of one wife." Secondly, yes, I have read many egalitarians who support homosexuality and use the same novel hermeneutic to come to their egalitarian conclusions as they do their pro-homosexual conclusions. In conclusion, the only ones causing divisions are those of you in the egalitarian camp who are hell-bent on distorting Scripture. -Pastor Matt Trewhella
Interesting perspective! Rev. Trewhella makes some strong points. There is no Bible translation anywhere that says God is our mother or even female...There is no real inclusive Bible...the real term is Gender 'accurate' Bible and the only reason one exists is because of the English language. Our language translates general terms like "anyone" as "a man". Because of our generic "he or him" many people misunderstand the meaning of the Greek original so translators decided to be more accurate and the result was hysteria from N.A. pulpits. i.e. 1Tim. 3:1 Greek says "if anyone desire to be an overseer", while the KJV says "If any man desire the office of a bishop". This has led to confusion (the work of Satan) that there is to be an 'office' of overseer and that it is only for 'males'. Secondly, no Egalitarians support the practice of homosexuality at all. It is forbidden in scripture across the board. We have here too many 'straw dog' arguments designed to inculcate fear and hostility. Shame on those who 'reinforce our differences rather than our shared humanity' and engender divisions among the faithful. "Mark them which cause divisions contrary to the doctrine that ye have received and avoid them." "Love one another".
