We invite you to listen to this audio sermon and consider it in relation to our current times. May we all consider the tragic story of Sodom and Gomorrah and learn a lesson, lest we too receive the awful judgment of God.
The following article was written and published in the O.P.A. in April of 2002. We call it back from the pages of history for the consideration of our readers and the proclamation of God's truth.
I have received a few ranting replies from people who read yesterday’s article “Women’s Roles and Public Teaching” or heard my presentation at the 4th Meeting. None of those who have sent messages attached their names, nor did most maintain a proper spirit (at least in my estimation). Thus, I will not post their replies nor respond to all of the inquiries. I would also point out that none of those who critiqued my article used any Scripture whatsoever; they merely vented their feelings and made attempts at logic. Unfortunately, logic (and poor logic at that) cannot take the place of Scripture.
1 Timothy 2:8-15
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; 9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
