General Discussion / Re: Women who are ordained?
« Last post by kristymcswain on February 22, 2018, 11:31:36 PM »
As a female wedding photographer I have to admit that it makes me highly uncomfortable to see a woman as a minister in any wedding setting. Hands down I do not feel it is biblical and no matter where the gospel is being preached, a woman is not called to do so.

Can a woman share her testimony, absolutely!
Can a woman lead a children or young adults bible study, absolutely!
Can a woman hand out gospel tracts, absolutely!
Can a woman preach behing a pulpit, absolutely not!

God is never the author of confusion and the first sign that something is wrong is when you get a check in your spirit. God gives us free will, but he also gave us common sense to listen to the Holy Spirit and His guiding in al matters.

The world we live in today is full of sin and being a wedding photographer reveals so much of the wickedness that is all around us.
* Lust of the flesh
* Lust of the eyes
* Lust of the world
It's all there.

Today's church has become a social club moreso than a place of true worship. No longer is sin preached about and a message of repentance given. People need to come back to the cross and I'm sorry but I can't take a woman serious if she is going directly opposed to the teachings of God's word.

Also a really great scripture concerning women ministers is also found in 1 Tim 3:2

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife...:

I've dealt with several individuals (men) who have wives who are pastors and when I give them this verse they can never give me an answer back, and neither can the wives. The answer normally given back is, who are you to judge? Or they like to quote Galations 3:28 which reads "“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Of course this shows that the Holy Spirit is not guiding them at all because that verse is clearly about becoming a part of the body of Christ at salvation, not being called to preach by the Holy Spirit.

We must always study the word to show ourselves approved. Anytime I see a woman behind pulpit, even at a wedding, I know they are not a true born again believer and disciple of Jesus Christ- they have made God into their own image to suit their own lustful needs. Their god is self-idolatry.

Also God just gave me this insight which I'm sure you already know, but women who preach behind pulpits and at weddings are being used by the devil to deceive the blind sheep into a false Christ- to pull them again from the truth found in God's word.

My heart is that It is not modest and can cause women to lust. Do men need to be bare chested to lifeguard? Certainly there is a more modest alternative to showing your body. Just my opinion, maybe someone else has more insight.

Is it okay for men to be shirtless? To swim in a pool and Lifegaurd?

General Discussion / Re: My testimony
« Last post by Rick on January 14, 2018, 09:37:15 PM »
I just want to share where I came from, my testimony is not complete though. I went to a Christian school growing up and was a good kid. After moving and attending public school I didn't have many friends my popular sister let me hang out with her which unfortunately pulled me into the wrong crowd. I was 14, and ended up in the hands of a bad man who traumatized me, shortly after my parents got divorced. I smoked weed to numb the pain, I was lost because of these things happening and no longer trusting anybody or anything to keep me safe since my friends and family betrayed me. I never told anybody what happened and bottled it in, two years later I willingly gave into being sexually immoral since I felt I was already damaged it didn't matter. I started drinking, doing HARD drugs, and being promiscuous. Then at 17 I got pregnant (2 months prior didn't do any hard drugs thank God), I considered having an abortion. At my appointment a nurse looked me in the eye and said "you don't want to do this" and when I said I thought I did she told me I still had time to come back but I wasn't getting one that day and sent me out. She may have been an angel. I split from my sons dad when he was 2, we were not married and he made me feel very used. Having a child made me more responsible but I still smoked weed and sometimes drank but no more hard drugs. 2 years later I had my first boyfriend since my sons dad who turned out to be a bad man, he was abusive and manipulative. After a year of that I broke it off and became extremely promiscious, I partied every chance I had, got wasted almost every night, and eventually did cocaine again, and lost my job of 6 years. I didn't learn my lesson, I lost nearly everything except my weekends with my son, it was the worst year of my life. I couldn't find work and would get gas money from the many men I would hook up with. I found a new full time job after a year of doing this and eventually the promiscuity got to me and I was alone and falling to pieces. The new job gave me benefits and I decided to talk to a counselor, this was the most unhelpful thing I could have had at that time I was so lost. I never went back there. I developed allergies to alcohol so I stopped drinking and stopped the cocaine since I wasn't hanging with the drinking buddies who supplied it. Over the years I also struggled with an eating disorder,  that and weed were my two companions. After getting interested in truther videos and came back to being interested in God. I realized the things he had done over the years like he was chasing me the whole time. I connected with a friend on facebook and we started a (immoral) relationship. I never would deny God and he and I would discuss it, but he didn't understand how I felt about God I literally could feel Him during situations in my life He was there with me. This ended up pulling me closer to God and breaking off the relationship with the guy after a year. I found a Christian counselor who uses the bible and prayer through everything, she has helped me recognize the hardness of my heart because of the sin that crept in especially after the trauma. I am still struggling with sin but fight every day, this is something I've lived with for 14 years and have tried everything but God to fix it. Coming to the Lord has been the only thing that makes me feel comforted and calmed my heart. I've been running in my lies and selfishness for far too long.

Where Is the part2 continuation? You have a great testimony in what God has done for you so far and your response but what sin are you still struggling with?
