Great Sermon! The young lady is slandering Mr. Piper. She does not have a problem with Piper, but the Most High. She is an unbeliever and not saved. she is twisting scripture to her own destruction. Mr. McManus dealt with her with a white glove.
Reply to Judy Judy,
You do not have the right to define "liberty in Christ" as "women can now be deacons" when it means sacrificing the inspired words of the apostles. Maybe in Canada they can do this, but not in heaven (Psalm 119:89) or in places filled with those who wish for His will to be done "on earth as it is in Heaven."
Have a nice day.
We only have copies! One who hates the Word of God so much is Satan and the only way he can destroy it, since it's indestructible, is to author his own version - the modern versions. Praise God He himself promised to preserve His own word and He preserved it His way- the Perfect Way(KJV).
Pastor WJS So the words of God Himself,Jesus, are just as weighty as those of a God-saved sinful man, Paul, in your eyes.
But that is not the point! Proper exegesis of scripture is to compare scripture with scripture. The prophets are subject to the prophets, as your beloved Paul says. If our understanding of Paul's words contradict the teachings of many other prophets in scripture we have to balance our interpretation so that it does not fly in the face of the whole counsel of God. Is that not so?
Since Jesus nowhere taught female submission, and since God presented Huldah the prophetess as a teacher of men and a king, as well as presenting Deborah,likewise, and taught that God's way is Equal (Ezekiel 18:25-29 and Ezekiel 33:17-30)how then do we find such weight given to the interpretation of Paul when he appears to take away the liberty Christ gives to women?
With Paul, then, I concur as he says of the Judaizers, Gal.2:4 ...because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you..."
-likewise with Jew, Gentile, male and female! Todays misogynist yesterday's Juda
Great Sermon! I saw this article online earlier last week and especially appreciated the perspective of dating being a training ground for divorce.
Great commentary. I totally agree that this is a parent issue at the core, not the responsibility of the church or the christian school, etc. However, the time youth spend under the mentoring of influential adults in school/church settings can't be ignored. The priorities, viewpoints, encouragements, etc, from these other adults all matter more than a little. And though NO adult has led a perfect life to pattern in front of these youth, the way they share their experiences of imperfection (in positive light vs negative) is very readily absorbed. We should be very careful not to glory in sharing our sin through testimony! They 'hear' one things but 'see' or 'know' another based on what we share with excitement, etc.
Young people being married while in college is a great idea! Babies often would come along but if priorities are leading them to consider college of the most importance for both, they certainly can prioritize following ways of abstaining at appropriate times so as to prevent those baby blessings until they feel they are 'ready' for them. (Of course, we all know 'ready' is never an actuality. 'Willing' to re-prioritize a better choi
Great Sermon! Good idea to marry young. However, when a Christian couple ties the knot at the beginning of college, who will care for their 2-3 children born during those 4-5 years? Perhaps grandma can move in with them to help. Christians must certainly think far more creatively and strategically than we have.
AMEN!!! This is sooooo true!!!
I wish there were some way to broadcast this information to the masses. At least SOME loving parents (and smart kids) would be emboldened to change the status quo.
There are many homeschool families succesfully putting these ideas into practice. The beauty is in hearing their married kids give testimony to how thankful they are for the purity these practices kept in place, and the LACK of heartache they experienced overall.
Not only that, but putting into practice what was discussed at the end would be very liberating! (Isn't that the way things were years ago when college began to be such a big expectation here?)
Excellent Points! This parent was inspired-! AND already sent the link to our ym. I listened twice - once for intro and twice to take copious notes!
My kids have talked about the HUGE NEED for this kind of ministry, even as ELEMENTARY students. They were soooooo tired of the same old milky presentations of Scripture as children's stories. Especially as homeschoolers already being taught creation science and some basic apologetics, and understanding with no problem, they were bored! Sunday School was often a setback, childish, or even pointless (to them), though their teachers were very faithful!
Kids are SMART. We need to treat them as such. !!! Thank you for this article/podcast!
Great Sermon! Thank you sooooo much for this message!
I really appreciate the genealogy comparison info, as well as the timeline explanations. I have already begun to share with anyone who will listen-!
Very few messages will I study and listen to more than once. This is one of them. (Along with Pastor Sean's messages about Joshua's commission.)
I praise The Lord for leading me to your church via SermonAudio! It has helped so very much to be able to watch the videos (& push pause if needed) during these past few months of not being able to get out and go to my own church.
Thank you all for preaching His Word so FAITHFULLY!
