This reaffirms the Holy Spirit's wisdom through Paul's admonition on female influence and authority: "I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor." (1 Tim. 2:12-14 ESV)
While such interference by the state may indeed be inappropriate, I believe it is unwise for men to hold onto leadership in advanced age without having a younger successor being prepared to take over. The personality cult has infected and ruined many churches when the prominent pastor finally retires or leaves.
Worked for Paul ... 25¬†But when they had stretched him out for the whips, Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, ‚ÄúIs it lawful for you to flog a man who is a Roman citizen and uncondemned?‚ÄĚ 26¬†When the centurion heard this, he went to the tribune and said to him, ‚ÄúWhat are you about to do? For this man is a Roman citizen.‚ÄĚ (Acts 22:25,26)
Christian wrote: Christians keep the Sabbath, which was fulfilled in Christ, by resting in Him from their works to gain God's favor. Every day is holy unto the Lord; every day is the Lord's Day. We must live every day as living sacrifices, offering ourselves up to the Lord as His vessels to do His will. If we exalt one day over others, it's easy to lose sight of that calling.
Climate change I can believe in: "Behold, he is coming with the CLOUDS, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. " - Revelation 1:7
UPDATE: It was at least somewhat encouraging to see that Wheaton subsequently suspended this professor and put her on administrative leave http://www.christianitytoday.com/gleanings/2015/december/wheaton-college-hijab-professor-same-god-larycia-hawkins.html
Franklin Graham also posted a scathing rebuke on this in Facebook.
This is the kind of "endorsing" behavior that is condemned in 2 John 10,11 "If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works." If "receiving" and "greeting" are warned against by scripture, in the sense of showing acceptance, how much more, adopting their custom in the sense of "solidarity". Sorry to see Wheaton going down this road.
pencil man wrote: Robert E. Lee's Christian Character: Weaver on SA Undoubtedly General Robert E. Lee was one of the greatest and godliest men that has ever lived. This message demonstrates his Christian character in every avenue of his life. His application of the Word of God to money, compassion, justice, and every day life is exemplary in every aspect. May God be pleased to raise up men like unto him.
I think John's point is that unemployment in and of itself isn't anymore a catalyst to sin than anything else. The Pope, Obama and other socialists pretend that jobs are entitlements. Sin is a natural condition for the natural man but is not excusable. Believers will not continue in sin as (the Bible's) John says in his epistles.
