I am honored to say that my pastor was one of those who turned in his Ordination credentials for Commissioned...In addition two Unions have suspended ordination altogether.
Jesus came as the "Son of Man". Are you saying the gender of Christ is a problem? There are wonderful people both men and women on both sides of this issue, you should not make this into a gender war. The Bible and what the Bible says is what matters not what people think or what their gender is.
No, it is not Reasoning, It is for Sarah, She was saying that men are the ones leading the fight against WO. I agree with what you're saying. God ordains who He ordains people have no choice in the matter. The post was not to end up where it did. What is disturbing about WO is that people bring in their on worldly thoughts rather than seeking God. They use the word culture or say things against Paul as a writer as if what he said does not belong in the Bible. Jesus was a man is all I was saying, this is not a gender war as some would like to make it out to be. The enemy is causing this as a distraction when we should all be focused.
Yes I agree. Jesus was never ordained of men. Much good work is done by lay people in a self supporting way.
I think Sarah, a long time contributor to AO deleted her post. I should have copied it.
Absolutely right Emmy the enemy has bought the womans emancipation in to the church. The bible is clear we was created equal, however God has also created us to have different roles to fulfill.
We find the emancipation movement telling us that woman can do all things that men do as well as doing the things that they was designed to do. Meaning that man is now redundant.
