Any building that has a women preaching in it is not a church, and certainly not a bible preaching church.

Did she and Aquilla help Apollos in a discipling way? Of course they did. Women as prophets in the OT or deacons do not hinder nor contradict the clear teachings in the NT church about the way a church should function(1 Timothy 2 to 3). Women apostles? That title was only for the 12, which were all men.FlamesHighontheTide wrote: ↑October 30th, 2020, 2:39 pm Examples are women preachers/pastors are completely unbiblical and in direct disobedience to God's word.This is not true. We have an example of Priscilla both teaching and pastoring (shepherding) to Apollos (Acts 18). We also have biblical examples of women being prophets, deacons, and apostles. The only office of the church we don't have a biblical example of is that of elder (overseer).
My statement about women preacher's and pastor's was tied to my statement about one of Dr. MacArthur's convictions which is deeply grounded in the Bible. His position is directly tied to the office of elder/pastor and to preach on a Sunday morning(or whenever the weekly gathering of that local congregation happens) is to perform the function of an elder/pastor.
Furthermore, 1 Timothy 2:12, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man." When the word of God is opened on a Sunday morning when God's people gather authority over the congregation is being shown by the preaching of the Word of God. When Beth Moore or any woman for that matter is doing this in church on a Sunday it is CLEARLY in direct disobedience to this.

Since then, I've looked more deeply into his history and he has been very unkind and uncharitable to others who don't toe his line of doctrine.stokesjokes wrote: ↑October 30th, 2020, 11:03 amWhy would he not make the list?
And yet John MacArthur makes your list?
I've come to see his brand of hyper-specific mandates on doctrinal issues as a form of new gnosticism- it's making the exact right knowledge/doctrine salvific instead of relationship with Christ and ultimately the fruit that should come with that.

I don’t think LU has had the large scale purge we’ve all been expecting and is needed. But if people start leaving quietly, I’m ok with that too.

I've given up on widespread changes and it appears to me Jerry P is getting awfully comfortable in that President's chair.

Genuinely curious because all I have seen thus far is heads planted firmly in sand and a few nice platitudes coming from Prevo's email that frankly has me strongly in the camp that he seems to be WAY too comfortable basking in the glow of his official capacity.I was unaware anyone was pleased.

The current board should not have been left in charge of selecting new leadership. Period. That is what has led to the current wandering in the wilderness we seem find our university. The Greens took the lead and cleaned house at ORU and have restored credibility for a school that had even more serious issues than we did. There appears to be ZERO indication that anything has been done to restructure and clean house of the pods of family members that entrenched themselves into leadership with no apparent qualifications. That should have been done immediately before the presidential search had advanced very far. The mess of a board is actually an impediment to attracting a quality president.
As for Nasser, I suspect that he is keenly aware of the fact that whomever slips into the president role is going to want their own choice in his seat. That may or may not have been clearly stated to Nasser but I feel confident he is aware of his circumstances.
