I Kings18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD [be] God, follow him: but if Baal, [then] follow him. And the people answered him not a word. 18:22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, [even] I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets [are] four hundred and fifty men. We have a Prophet who says that the General Conference in session is the voice of God, but there are the Baals who say that it is not. So how long shall there be the difference of opinion? Maybe it is time for some fire from Heaven and swords to clear things up! (Figuratively speaking) It is high time that the kicking the can down the road come to an end. Either the NAD and others decide whose side they are really on.Right now we have a divided Church, possible two Churches in one and the claim by the NAD that they support the mission is a false claim. Hypocrisy is running high.It is time to make some serious changes in leadership in the NAD,Unions and Conferences. Frankly, I stand solidly with the General Conference! Elder Jim Cox. Ret. Is it Christian to compare Baal worshippers to women who have answered the Holy Spieit’s call? Those supporting the women in ministry are following Ellen White’s example, who supported women pastors. EGW had at least 7 different conference ministerial credentials. The Holy Spirit’s calling EGW is present truth that God calls women to ministry and leadership. Have you thought that Christians who see God calling women pastors, may wonder why you have left the example of our pioneers and followed apostate Protestantism’s headship theology developed around 1960? Any time we depart from Biblical order and authority, regarding gender or otherwise, we are practicing idolatry as surely as did the Baal worshipers on Mount Carmel. And headship theology is much older than 1960; it is as ancient as the Bible (I Cor. 11:3; Eph. 5:22-25). Headship theology explains why God called to Adam when he and Eve were hiding in the bushes (Gen. 3:9, even though Eve had been the first to sin. It explains why the Second Person of the Godhead came to the the Second Adam rather than the Second Eve (Rom. 5:12-18; I Cor. 15:22). Adam was the original head of humanity, and Jesus came to take his place as humanity’s Head when Adam fell. Early Adventists, like A.T. Jones, also believed in headship theology, and even used the word, as Jones did in an American Sentinel article published in 1890. (I can’t recall the exact date, as I am writing this from Botswana and don’t have access to my sources.) But at the bottom line, the present controversy is about Biblical authority as distinct from the authority of culture. The Biblical case for spiritual male headship is clear and precise. Women such as Ellen White can be prophets, but not elders or priests. Kevin, calling this headship heresy a “theology” is really disgusting. It’s nothing but pure discrimination of women. And saying that it’s been around for long is a completely misleading statement. An interesting video and format. The background music volume is somewhat overwhelming, if not actually annoying. A “good video” but it missed one VITAL POINT. The “unity” must be on submission to what the Bible clearly teaches on the issue of WOPE or any other biblical teaching. The only ones who are saved in the end are those who have set aside their opinions and chosen to let the Holy Spirit control their lives, to “make them good.” We can follow GC decisions all we want, even if correct. But unless we are a New Covenant Christian, one who is allowing God to make them good, instead of trying to be good on their own, salvation is out of their reach. Choose you this day who you will serve. Maranatha, Ray Phillips very nice. But the spirit of Rebellion is so strong , that ‘nice’, causes more anger. We know what is to happen to the church in these last days. We know in detail. Those in rebellion do not want to see it and accuse the other side of being the problem. The same as in a family when one child goes astray. No amount of prayer or kindness brings them back. It has to come from the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the person. This video is really outrageous. I can believe someone is promoting this. It is only outrageous to those who have their own ideas of right and wrong (their own righteousness) instead of believing Christ. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
