Here’s why: he doesn’t know anything about the Bible’s view of women.
Fischer claimed that God specifically reserves leadership roles for men only, even in the home and used the Bible as proof.
The essayist goes on to list places where the Bible describes, in the most positive terms, women in leadership positions.
So, Mr Fischer, given your ineptitude- here’s your dilly. Congrats!
‘I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already! There is a baptism I must still receive, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! ‘Do you suppose that I am here to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on, a household of five will be divided: three against two and two against three; father opposed to son, son to father, mother to daughter, daughter to mother, mother-in-law to daughter-in-law, daughter-in-law to mother-in-law.’ (Lk. 12:49-53)
That’s the inconvenient Jesus the universalists hope you never hear about. The Jesus who demands loyalty and threatens destruction. The Jesus who by his very claim separates families. They wish that Jesus didn’t exist. And they pretend this and similar texts don’t.
Luther was once asked
Should not those who have sinned openly by their teaching be rebuked openly, as Moses did to Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, as Elijah did to the Baalites, as Paul did to Peter, and as we publicly opposed the pope?
Luther replied, “A brother ought first to be rebuked privately, especially if the fault is new and involves only a few people. But if the error is firmly rooted among many people, so that it’s not possible to approach every individual and admonish him separately, the error must be rebuked and refuted publicly.”
People owe it to the community to rebuke politicians and church leaders when they sin publicly. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton speak and act publicly and they must be rebuked and refuted publicly. Silence is agreement and agreement with sin is sin.
These are lessons Eric Metaxas and David Barton and others of their ilk need to learn.
Human rulers typically ascend by way of “nefarious artifices (or) fickle suffrages of the people”. –John Calvin
Two Ohio parents have been charged with child endangerment after police found their son alone trying to sell his teddy bear for food Sunday. Police received a call when the 7-year-old was peddling his toy in front of a drug store, and he told police he hadn’t eaten in several days. Officer Steve Dunham took the child to a nearby Subway to get something to eat, then brought him back to the Franklin Police Department. After further investigation, police found that the child and his brothers were living in a home full of garbage, cat urine and liquor bottles. The five brothers have been removed from the home and are now staying with family members.
If you can buy booze and food for a cat, you can buy food. But you don’t want to. So you’d rather live like a beast and let your children suffer.
An online petition is circulating to oust a judge who handed down no prison time to a former CU student accused of rape. Judge Patrick Butler sentenced Austin Wilkerson to two years work-release in the Boulder County jail and probation Wednesday, and there has been a national outcry calling the sentence light.
Denver resident Becca Cales heard about the case and started an online petition asking the state legislature to impeach Judge Butler. “It could have been me,” writes Cales. “Like plenty of college students, I was at plenty of parties where I drank — but that doesn’t mean that I — or any other person — wouldn’t deserve justice if I were sexually assaulted.”
The full story is here. More injustice from the farce called the justice system.
