Woman Pastors

Gospel Today which sells at most Lifeway Christian book stores have moved it out of the stands and placed it behind the counter because of the cover of the magazine.  Woman Pastors.  Seems rather petty to me I mean it’s not like it’s porn or lewd.  But I guess the owners of Lifeway feel that it may be offensive to it’s customers.

Even if the Baptise don’t agree with woman being Pastors I think this is a bit to paranoid.  They also don’t sell TNIV.

    Pastor Robert, I actually laughed when I read your post, and the ensuing comments….Not for any condescending reasons, but rather we(the church I’m going to) have been studying the book of Romans, and we covered the following verses in depth this morning. That said I think the Lord is trying to tell this sarcastic man(me) something.

    Romans 14
    1 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. 2 For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for God has received him. 4 Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.
    5 One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord;[a] and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ died and rose[b] and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.[c] 11 For it is written:

    “ As I live, says the LORD,
    Every knee shall bow to Me,
    And every tongue shall confess to God.”

    12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.

  2. Rob,

    I think it’s a case with the Baptist over reacting to something that is really in my opinion hilarious. Really, is it going to cause an uprising within their denomination? God forbid someone should read this? I doubt it.

    Anne Graham Lotz is a big evangelist within the Baptist denomination. I was unable to determine if she is or is not ordained by them, but either way you cannot deny the ministry and impact that she has.

    I just thought it was really silly for them to do this, and to go to such measures to try and hide something from their customers, who I would assume a large portion are Baptist. Why would God want to use a woman anyhow? – Just kidding – I am all for woman being used by God.
