Should women be in ministry?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Gentlemen, it’s time to close your ears because we’re talking to the ladies today and more specifically about a woman’s role in the ministry. All joking aside, in truth gents you need to hear this broadcast too because we’re often the ones guilty of discriminating against women in ministry, so we need to perk up and listen intently to this message. Now some conservative denominations think women should just keep quiet in church and forget about the ministry altogether and they use two of the Apostle Paul’s statements to back this up; namely 1st Corinthians 14:34 and 1st Timothy 2:12. However, we must study scripture in context and in light of its Geographical and Historical setting, for accurate interpretation. Remember, ‘context determines meaning’ and we would be amiss to ignore these important and pertinent contexts when reading these controversial passages.” – Pastor Carl

Noah’s Flood

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Noah’s flood was real; hands down it was a fact, not a ‘story’ as many secularists often couch it. What you really believe that Pastor? I mean come on eight people get on a boat with a whole bunch of animals for 370 days, are you kidding me? Well, 1st Peter 3:20 reveals categorically that eight people did indeed board the ark and God’s word is true no matter what the critics might say. Yes friend, there are boats far larger and heavier than Noah’s Ark sailing the oceans today. They also take advantage of God’s ideal ‘length to breadth ratio’ of 6.5 times as long as wide, being the optimum choice for the buoyancy of vessels, as Noah’s ark demonstrated. Noah’s global flood was most assuredly an historical event and the fossil record ‘shouts’ and ‘screams’ of an archaic, cataclysmic and worldwide deluge. But believe it or not, there are even some Christians who don’t believe Noah’s flood was real either. So I’m going to clear up some of these doubts in this broadcast today.” – Pastor Carl

The love of God

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“If love is not evident in our lives then our relationship with God can be called into question because love is not only a ‘fruit of the Spirit,’ but a command also. Now let me read you another verse (1 Cor 13:13), “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” In the old King James Bible, they translated the word love as ‘charity,’ in this verse. If we think of ‘charity’ today, we think of goodwill; an act of benevolence toward someone else or a love for humanity as a whole. But in the Greek language, the word for charity in this specific verse; is ‘agape’ and it’s the same Greek word for ‘love’ in 1 John 4:8 also. Now this Greek word, ‘agape’ is a far richer word than we can conceive from the English language, because it’s talking about ‘the love of God the Father.’ It’s especially characterized by a willing forfeiture of rights or privileges on another person’s behalf. This love is self sacrificial and to be honest, it’s difficult to properly describe the vast love that God the Father has for humanity because it’s beyond our full comprehension. In order for me to effectively transmit the love of the Father to you, I’d like to start out by telling you a story about the ‘bridge master’ and his son.” – Pastor Carl
