Suffering and Christmas

My apologies to my readership that I haven’t been blogging recently like I said in my last post I would, but recent events have made blogging near impossible as of late. Between much work, preparing to move and several other events, my time has been short and something had to give. Unfortunately this blog is that thing. I am hoping to blog more once I get back to California, but I am giving no promises. Continue reading

So, I learned an important lesson about Publishing content in the Future. This post was supposed to post middle of last week, but I accidentally set the date for November 11th, 2012. I discovered my mistake and rectified the issue. But it is posting now (11-13-11). Sigh. I can’t win.

Happy Veteran’s Day!! I hope that you remember to take the time to Thank a Veteran for their service and Thank God for the many freedoms he has bestowed on those that live in the US. When was the last time that you thanked God for them and didn’t complain about the freedoms? It’s a humbling thought. For example, I periodically complain about the democratic government instead of being thankful that it can be changed. Just something to think about.

Also, Sunday is the International Day of Prayer, focusing on the Persecuted Church. Check out Voice of the Martyrs page on it.  Remember to pray for our brothers in persecuted church abroad. “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” Hebrews 13:3

My post today is a reflection on Exodus 2:23-25 and 3:7-8. Continue reading

Submission: An Explanation

In my post on Theology and Submissive Women, I realized that I did not entirely define submission. I said what it was not,  but never what it is. So, in this post I will attempt to define what I mean by submission and where I see it playing out, not only in the lives of women, but in the daily living of the Christian.

This is a follow-up to my last post which details the beginning of my journey in understanding the issue of women in the church. My task in this post is to draw out what I think the role of women in the church is (with their submission to husbands in mind).

The tentative conclusion that my Father and I have come to is Continue reading

What follows is the first of what I am anticipating to be a several part series on the topic of the place of women  in the world, based on the Biblical Account.  This has been an interesting week, as I helped my Dad research 1 Timothy 2:9-15, a passage infamous for rankling feminists and the modern sensibility of the equality of women in general, due to its imperative from Paul, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.”  Currently, the men of Dad’s Bible Study are working through this passage and Dad wanted to rely upon my “expertise” to study this area.
