Great Sermon! I have been to about 100 churches trying to find one that preaches and teaches the proper male/female roles found in the Bible. I teach a group of women that are learning the proper roles. We have to keep it secret if we want to have a peaceful group. Keep on teaching Gods word as it is. Thank you.
The debate here appears to focus on the difference of opinions over doctrine. One part of the discussion below suggests doctrine is either not important or irrelevant.
I strongly disagree
1John 4:6 WE are OF God: *HE* that KNOWETH God HEARETH US; (Whereas) - he that is *NOT* of God heareth NOT us. (Reason) - Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
"John calmly but breathtakingly states in black and white that, "We (apostolic witnesses] are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood" (1 John 4:6). Bolder authority-claims could hardly be made. The apostles are no less sure than were the Old Testament prophets that their message was from God."(JP)
The spoken witness of Scripture MUST be very important.
