Re: Women in Ministry (and in the home)

Paul was just a man, even with his grace and revelation.

To make him sinless is a grave mistake in my opinion, but it's your choice to do so.

The problem with what's "clear" is, actually, people just think things are clear that agree with their view already.

Re: Women in Ministry (and in the home)

Paul freely admitted some things he wrote were his personal preference, it's important to factor that in.

Re: Women in Ministry (and in the home)

Mike Winger recently did an in-depth study on this topic.

Not saying I completely agree with him, but you might find it interesting.

Tattoos and pork are not somehow bad, these things were symbolic shadows, it clearly says this.

Re: John 20:28, Thomas' Confession & "Lord"

I think it's the fact that Jesus really lived a legitimate fully human life that makes people hesitate to accept his divine side.

With the doctrine of Functional Kenosis, we can see that Jesus can in reality live an actual human life and yet still be God.

Re: How do we understand 1 Timothy 4:1-5?

You're building way too much from Jesus calling a scorpion and snake bad food. He wasn't talking about their meat. Both those animals are venomous animals. Christ did not say "Don't give your child a dead, cooked snake with spices and a side dish." Christ is talking about giving them animals that wi...

Re: How do we understand 1 Timothy 4:1-5?

Then they decided to obey the original command from God on their own terms: 41 "Then you answered and said to me,`We have sinned a...

Re: How do we understand 1 Timothy 4:1-5?

Your logic is incorrect. If God commands something to a specific people at a specific time, this is not a universal command. For us to try to follow the Jewish Law , when God specifically commands us not to, and tells us that it was a shadow that symbolized New Covenant truths, is disobedience for u...

Re: Thoughts on Parenting

Sometimes we learn the hard way.

I appreciate you sharing, as I was treated harshly as a child.

I'm sure you've apologized to your children, and it's a comfort to know God works all things together for good and we can put our mistakes under the Blood.
