Men and women pastors, or not?

Kevin deYoungHave you ever thought whether women may be pastors in the church or not? Most modern Christians have.

Kevin deYoung, senior pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan, has written an analysis of chapter 12 (“Women, Men and God”) of John Stott's book, Issues Facing Christians Today (4th Edition, Zondervan, 2006).

Kevin tackles the issue in Go Big or Go Home: Why Complemegalitarian Doesn’t Work, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

How to find a church

For those who are serious about what they are fed from the pulpit, it becomes a daunting task to find a church where the truth is preached unadulterated. Here in South Africa there is a proliferation of churches that merely skim the Scriptures and never get to the meat. They keep on feeding their people fast-food, and hence their people can no longer handle the true meat of the Scriptures.

So, looking for a church is not easy. Dan Phillips has written a blog post that helps us to search for a church. Unfortunately his post is written very much for the American scene, but there is much to gain from his post.

Love is perpendicular

Love isn't easy. Especially love to those that irritate us. One of my pet peeves here in South Africa is the way people drive, especially the taxis. They are just plain dangerous. I find this very irritating and I truly find it difficult in those situations to show love to people that drive without following the rules of the road and drive like maniacs.

As Christians, we are called to love one another, because this is how the world will know that we are His disciples (Jn 13:35).

The question is, what about those that are not Christians?
