What Shall We Say Then About Abraham?

*The introduction of the sermon was not recorded, sadly. Where the recording begins is with some crowd sourcing done through Twitter, in which I asked people to summarize Romans in a single tweet, in order to show how Romans is complicated and we have to see the big picture of Paul’s purpose in order to understand why ch. 4 is so important.*

1 Response to What Shall We Say Then About Abraham?

  1. John says:

    You don’t take the Bible seriously. You twist it to suit your feminist, modern Western culture. You selectively take a few phrases of 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 out of context in order to avoid what it really says about male headship. You deceptively claim that 1 Timothy 2:12 isn’t about what’s not permitted.

    The Bible contains ZERO examples of women as elders in the church. It states that male headship is rooted in the Trinity, creation and the Fall and emphatically states that it’s the practice for all churches, not debatable and anyone who doesn’t recognize it is not recognized.

    If you’re a liberal unbeliever, stop pretending to be a pastor and stop misleading people about scripture.
