"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
During an international conference on women and religion, Carter’s examples of religious authorities continuing doctrines of male superiority included the Catholic Church’s practice of banning women from the priesthood and some African cultures’ mutilation of the genitalia of young girls.
Describing these doctrines as theologically indefensible, Carter said they contribute to an environment in which political leaders passively accept violence against women, sex-trafficking, and inequality in the workplace.
Referring to St. Paul and his writings, Carter said, “Paul said there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, slaves or masters, man or woman.” However, he noted “gross abuses of religious texts in the Koran and in the Bible, Old Testament and New Testament. Singular verses can be extracted and extorted to assert the singular dominance of men.” more of Carters silly rantings: here
‘Jimma’ Carter has played the fool most of his political life (we’ll leave it beginning there). He’s one of the all time most miserable President’s the country has seen, next to Wilson and Roosevelt ….. and before the Marxism of Obama — all by pure chance have been Democrats.
He, like Barack Hussein, enjoys bashing Christianity, pointing out what they both view as flaws, errors and mistakes. As usual, they’re both wrong.
I do not support Catholicism, which has done it’s share of hiding pedophiles and the like, as well as people seeking true Christianity — but what Carter said is beyond ignorant. The Bible, which should be the source of ALL judgments and true knowledge, is clear on the topic of woman teaching in the church. Teaching is endorsed and accepted, as long as it’s not in the pulpit. Of course, that makes a lot of people mad, especially the misguided Christian, but facts are facts, truth is truth.
When we, as believers, start taking apart and disassembling words and instructions within the Bible, we as believers, do so at our own peril. The Word of God in inherent. When a Christian finds such a simple instruction as woman shouldn’t be pastors, they have serious spiritual problems. There are those who disavow that God created Adam and Eve within a 7 day period, which is precisely what the Bible tells us. They choose to believe in evolution, in some form. If a professing believers disagrees with God’s Word in the first chapter, or first paragraph!, I would urge him to do some earnest seeking.
God’s blessed us by giving His Word of Truth. Like it or not, it’s all truth and if you disagree or go to a church which disagrees, this is not a minute thing. It’s a very serious thing which will cause great spiritual harm and stifle true growth. Questioning is a good thing, but finding correct answers is vital. Here are a couple of good web sites.
