Gov. Scott activates National Guard ahead of Hurricane Irma
About 100 members of the Florida Air and Army National Guard were activated Tuesday to begin preparations for Hurricane Irma and all 7,000 members will report for duty Friday morning, Gov. Rick Scott said.
In activating the Guard, Scott said if additional resources are needed before Friday, ‚Äúthen I stand ready to activate as many guard members needed to support our aggressive preparedness actions.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWith Hurricane Irma now a category 5 storm, we must do all we can to prepare our families and communities for any potential impact from this major weather event,‚ÄĚ Scott said in a statement. ‚ÄúWe do not know the exact path of this storm, but weather can change in an instant and while we hope for the best, we must prepare for the worst.‚ÄĚ...

Certainly the full biblical text goes as: "Let your women keep silence *in the churches* " and "it is a shame for women to speak *in the church* "
Yet we may be witness cult-like lordship of male or female individuals, who personally infuriated by differing views to their own, invariably in irritated angry bee-like nature, rank a following.
Acting for righteousness and truth, as commendable practice this is, should not be confused with such 'pope-like' behaviour, neither should be reinforced as a plausible trait.
The principle of 'live and let live' is biblical, (see parable of the wheat and tares), because we can trust an all-sufficient God who said "vengeance is mine I will repay"
This means we are not to exercise obsessive lordship of any setting for our own personal gratification as if all depended on man
As it may be easily understood, warning and exhorting excluded here, by definition of mutual support, concern and admonition, which constitute legitimate biblical practice in the context of personal, or media interaction.
1 Timothy 2:11-12 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. ---ESV

I am surprised at your pastor does not support what this Presbyterian pastor proved from scripture UPS, [https://tinyurl.com/j9vs9jw]]]https://tinyurl.com/j9vs9jw (Women Preachers)[/URL]. Methodism must be creeping into Evangical churches?
I think you would find many pastors do not think women are not to be acting like preachers anywhere in public as the above commentary would point out.
In any event I don't agree with you, and if someone acts like ALL-CAPS I will probably treat them like that depending if I want to bother with them at all.

quoted from the article in my post, he is definitely writing about woman preachers in the pulpit. He certainly would have no knowledge of sisters sharing their thoughts on an internet site news forum.
What the Bible does not say, is let woman keep silent and then end the sentence. This forum is not a church. Wanting to silence opposing viewpoints is a much seen liberal tactic. Ladybug properly predicted your response.
ABC Radio News wrote: ...hurricanes and other natural disasters pose an especially big threat to growing coastal cities such as Houston, Miami and Tampa.
Houston‚Äôs population has grown steadily over the past roughly four decades, as has that of Miami and Tampa, Florida, according to Census Bureau data.
...all three of these growing cities found themselves over the past two weeks in the path of Category 4 hurricanes that wrecked parts of the southeastern U.S.
But some say the devastation should come as no surprise.
‚ÄúThis is something that experts have expected would happen as population centers have been growing in coastal areas worldwide,‚ÄĚ said Allison Plyer, chief demographer for The Data Center, a demographic analysis group based in New Orleans.
"The increasing level of damage due to disasters, whether they're hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, any kind of disaster ... will continue," she said.

not everyone who says they are a Christian even really means it... sometimes its just a means to an end.
I appreciate your biblical response to Jim Link on, unfortunately it will bounce right off him. May God open his understanding, for he is in the bond of iniquity, void of the new birth and simply a tare among the wheat.
"the preaching by women was universally condemned among all conservative denominations of Christians. Now the idea is being presented to the churches, and female preachers are knocking at our doors."
From John MacArthur
"While the ministry of women is essential to the church‚Äôs proper working and health, only men are given the responsibility to serve as pastors and elders.
The clearest biblical teaching on this issue is found in 1 Timothy 2:12: ‚ÄúBut I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.‚ÄĚ This command comes in a section of 1 Timothy which teaches about the functioning of a local church. ...the roles of pastors and elders are limited to men in the church."
Even those who you purport to support your viewpoint acknowledge that the Scripture speak about woman and their role in the local church. Specifically the roles of teaching and preaching in a local body of believers.
In this forum we have comments from Presbyterians, Catholics Episcopalians, Baptists, and undoubtedly more, what is the name of the church here?
Ladybug, who is a source of blessing to many of us, comments are most welcome here. This is news forum comment section not a church.
I agree. The link I gave for Jim is a sermon on that topic, God's wrath. It is something we hear little of in today's 'modern' churches. Sinners like Jim think they simply have to follow the'Roman road' and they are saved. Again, context is everything, along with cross reference. From that link I gave... "But saying you believe in Christ is not what God requires. Saying one believes in Christ never saved anyone from hell. In fact, merely saying one believes in Christ only to escape hell damns hypocrites to a yet hotter hell. So how can saying you believe merely to escape from hell ever help you escape hell? And if it doesn‚Äôt, then scare preaching does not produce a hypocritical, cowardly saying anything to escape the threat. As for terror driving people mad, it drives them to sanity. For sinners to eat, drink, and be merry while such living daily heats their hell the more is insane. Scare preaching awakens them to sanity and possible salvation. What does scare preaching really produce? It produces an awesome, trembling awareness that you must have saving (not saying) faith in Christ."
We need J. Edwards 'sinners in the hands of an angry God' for our day.
Dear Ladybug, I don't know the Governor of Florida BUT I do like how he and his team in Florida gave comments of things they were doing to prepare for this devestating storm, encouraging people in Florida to flee, seek shelter, and help one another, etc
... I so wish more in Church leadership would be doing similarly to prepare people for the Serious Inescapable Persecution that is only a halfstep away from breaking out; and to equip, train encourage and go out with their people to evangelize and rescue as many as possible before uttler devestating burning righteous wrath of God that will come, comes upon all the ungodly sweeping them into hell forever.
It's telling that you cannot answer a simple question, and to cover your ignorance, you resort to name calling and false accusations.
Try again, tell us, from YOUR OWN personal studies of 1 timothy 2:12 what the context is. Stop with the false accusations in an attempt to divert away from this question. What is the context of the chapter we find verse 12 in? It isn't hard to answer IF you've been born again by God. I am not asking you for JMac's 'commentary', cheating is not allowed here. Use your own studies to answer the question, refrain from slandering me and falsely accusing.
Then, go to Acts and study how Priscilla and Aquila corrected the error of Apollos and study the context of that chapter.
After you've done all that, come back here and admit your error, then seek God for mercy for wrongly applying His holy word in an attempt to slander and falsely accuse.
May God have mercy on you Jim L., for you are a tare among the wheat. You are void of the new birth, and your goal is to come here and infiltrate in an attempt to push your father, Satan's agenda.
Here is an excellent sermon on the terror of the Lord that you really should read - https://www.the-highway.com/articleDec01.html
Pastorette lbug if you had read the John MacArthur commentary on Bible interpretation or more importantly how things apply to you, [URL=https://tinyurl.com/j9vs9jw]]]https://tinyurl.com/j9vs9jw (Women Preachers)[/URL] You would realize that you don't go picking verses out of context -- like Jehovah Witnesses!
But if you want me to look at that verse quite separately, it does remind me of Hillary Clinton and some other women I can mention - - who want to wear the pants in the family. This is wrong of course.
Well for knowledgeable people who know that they are to ignore pastorettes, lbug, I would recommend the excellent article by John MacArthur, [URL=http://articles.ochristian.com/article2180.shtml]]]http://articles.ochristian.com/article2180.shtml (Proper Biblical Interpretation)[/URL].

ABC News Radio wrote: A combined damages from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma could cost the U.S. economy as much as $290 billion, according to a new forecast.
Hurricane Harvey, which battered Houston with record amounts of torrential rain and flooding last month, is estimated to be one of the costliest weather disasters in U.S. history and Irma is expected to cause record-breaking damages as well, AccuWeather President Joel Myers said in a statement Sunday.
"We believe the damage estimate from Irma to be about $100 billion, among the costliest hurricanes of all time. This amounts to 0.5 of a percentage point of the GDP of $19 trillion," Myers said. "We estimated that Hurricane Harvey is to be the costliest weather disaster in U.S. history at $190 billion or one full percentage point of the GDP."
