OK, dear friends. In this encore PODCAST (while I am away speaking), we are about to leap off of the high dive into the shark-infested waters of what has become today an unnecessarily emotionally-charged, needlessly controversial issue among many of our so-called evangelical/fundamental churches.
One that has done immeasurable damage to the precious women in far too many congregations.
It absolutely sickens me to think how so many of us men have depreciated the value of women in the work of God.
And as you will hear ever-so loudly and clearly, it sickens Jesus too.
Who would have thought that women, specifically the role of women within the work of God on this earth, would become a hotbed of controversy? But it has.
And just in case you are wondering here at the “get-go” whether or not I am a complimentarian or an egalitarian on this issue. I am neither. Oh how I hate labels. Words that mean different things to different people (usually inaccurately so) with little or no nuance. Words that carry so much baggage.
That said, I have but one agenda: To let the Bible speak for itself with minimal commentary from me. All to make this one undeniable point as loud and clear, crystal clear as we can:
God has dramatically used, presently uses, and will continue to use women to further His purposes on this planet. Both inside and outside of local churches.
