Minor Clarification Not that this has any bearing on the sermon one way or another...but both myself and Charley were with you, and we were not watching it on TV in K-Mart. (As a matter of fact, I really thought it was Wal-Mart, but I won't swear to that bit.) We were listening to the news on the car radio - I believe it was on NPR, but again, I won't swear to that part. We pulled up in the parking lot of X-Mart, and you just sat there, making no move at all to get out. After a few minutes, being the antsy toddler that I was, I asked, "Dad, are we going in??" You replied, "Not yet. Listen to this. It's important. You'll remember this for the rest of your life." So we sat in the car for a while longer, listening as the reporter described the youth climbing up the wall; striking it with hammers, pickaxes, anything they could get their hands on. I asked (as anyone who knew me at that time can imagine) why they weren't using missiles and hand grenades and dynamite instead, and you explained how it was more symbolic than anything. How the magnitude of destruction - and whether or not they'd tear down the entire wall that night - wasn't what the world was watching for so intently. The point was that the people were being ALLOWED TO try. You were right...I never forgot.
Great Sermon! This is a very interesting sermon which discusses the curse upon women in Genesis 3 to desire to rule over men, and God's ordination that men should rule over women-- in lieu of the NFL being attacked by feminism. I like the gentle, thoughtful, and caring tone that this preacher exhibits.
