DOWN WITH SOLA SCRIPTURA!
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. (1 Timothy 2:12)
If You Truly Love Jesus Then You Will Do What God Says
As Apprising Ministries showed you, in Tony Jones And His Pastor Doug Pagitt With JoPa Productions And Christianity 21, through their JoPa Productions this dubious pair within Emergence Christianity are the ones behind the Christianity 21 conference coming up in October of this year. They tell us it’s “a gathering of voices” who will help “shape the future of our faith.”
have gathered 21 of the most important voices for the future of Christianity—21 voices for the 21st century—to speak into our future as people of faith in this age. They represent a diverse array of backgrounds, interests, and passions, and they will provide a wide range of innovative and challenging presentations. (Online source)
In Christianity 21 And Alleged Innovative Voices In The Faith: Nadia Bolz-Weber we earlier introduced you to one of these alleged impressive “voices” within this Emergence deformation of the Christian faith, who’ll be supposedly shaping “the future” of the visible church; one ”Rev.” Nadia Bolz-Weber.
She’s the pastor-priestess of the emerging House for All Sinners and Saints (HFASS) Lutheran church, which is affiliated with the apostatizing Evangelical Lutheran Church of America:
a group of folks figuring out how to be a liturgical, Christo-centric, social justice oriented, queer inclusive, incarnational, contemplative, irreverent, ancient – future church with a progressive but deeply rooted theological imagination. (Online source)
Bolz-Weber’s website Sarcastic Lutheran also tells us this self-described Lutheran Vicar is doing “Emerging church ala Luther.” Men and women, don’t be taken in by these postliberal dreamers and their reimagined inclusive religion of man-love, aka Progressive Christianity, featuring an amorphous God/Goddess with a man-shaped hole in his/her/its heart who’s then the Father/Mother over some supposed interspiritual Global Brotherhood of Man.
Because in “pastor” Bolz-Weber’s case, she’s already off-track attempting to portray that her church shares anything with theologians of the Protestant Reformation. “Queer-inclusive” rebels against the final authority of the Bible like Bolz-Weber are revealing themselves to be the polar opposite of what Lutherans once stood for; and Martin Luther says no…to women pastors:
It is, however, true that the Holy Spirit has excepted women, children, and incompetent people from this function, but chooses (except in emergencies) only competent males to fill this office, as one reads here and there in the epistles of St. Paul that a bishop must be pious, able to teach, and the husband of one wife – and in I Corinthians 14 he says, ‘The women should keep silence in the churches.’
In summary, it must be a competent and chosen man. Children, women, and other persons are not qualified for this office,… Moses says in Genesis 3, ‘You shall be subject to man.’ The Gospel, however, does not abrogate this natural law, but confirms it as the ordinance and creation of God.” (Online source)
Preaching is entrusted to the man and not to the woman, as Paul also teaches, insofar as this has to do with Christian matters. Otherwise, it can occasionally happen that a woman gives better advice, as one reads in Scripture. But apart from that, the offices of leading, preaching, and teaching God’s word are commanded to the man. (Luther on Women: A Sourcebook, Susan C. Karant-Nunn, Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks, Merry E. Wiesner, 24, cited Online source)
And, contrary to both of them, I don’t hate either Nadia Bolz-Weber or Jay Bakker; I hate what they teach. The Lord knows I sincerely pray for both of them come to their senses and disassociate themselves from this Emerging Church aka Emergent Church, now morphing into Emergence Christianity. As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I am merely doing my best to hold:
fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. (Titus 1:9, NASB)
