Bible Verses1 Timothy 2:11-15

Preacher

Preached on

March 11, 2018

Sermon Description

How can Christianity be pro-women if it prohibits them from doing something in the church? Many would either reject the notion that Christianity is good for women or reinterpret the prohibitions. But Scripture affirms both. God's heart for women is huge and his rightly-ordered churches do them no harm.

Preached on

March 4, 2018

Sermon Description

1 Timothy 2 contains an apostolic command regarding the role of women in the church that is theologically grounded in God’s original design for creation.

Our highly individualistic culture has grown skeptical, even antagonistic toward authority. Which is why the biblical concept of submission is unpopular and upsetting to many.
