Links for Febuary 15, 2007

I still don’t really understand this. There is a side of Christianity that is still quite against women in leadership and they have to be sanctioned to certain places in the church. On this post when a female commented on her thoughts on the issue she was referred (by the author of the post) to read a book to see where she could serve in the church and reassured it wouldn’t be in the nursery or baking cookies. I find this hard to grasp, but as Challies commented on this post, I need to come at this a bit more humbly, so maybe I’ll be approaching this topic a bit sooner here on this site.

This guy is a blogger for a living, he runs problogger.net and a few other major blogs. After reading up on him a bit, I found out that he was a church planter also. That is friggin cool and perhaps inspiring.

I’m starting to love this VEOH site more and more. They allow you to upload full quality videos, its faster than any other video site I’ve been on. They also allow you to have a small tv station type thing on your site which I’m going to test out on theStory site next week scrolling through all the videos you’ve uploaded. It also uploads your video automaticlly to Google Video and YouTube. However, they have a few setbacks, their software doesn’t work that well and it is quite slow with the upload process. They are getting though, it’s only getting better.

  • “There is a side of Christianity that is still quite against women in leadership and they have to be sanctioned to certain places in the church.”

    That is overstating the issue. Some Christians (many Christians) believe that the Bible teaches that women are not to hold certain positions within the church. To then state that these people sanction women is to turn this into an argument rather than a discussion.

    “On this post when a female commented on her thoughts on the issue she was referred to read a book (by the original author) to see where she could serve in the church and reassured it wouldn’t be in the nursery or baking cookies.”

    The book was not by the original author.

    “I guess if we uphold a strong view of women equality we have drifted far from authority of scripture and have drifted far from God himself.”

    That is Grudem’s argument. Rather than simply shake your head in disdain, you may want to read about it, consider it, and interact with it. That would be more profitable than simply scoffing at it.

    “This stuff just never ceases to amaze me.”

    And many Christians are amazed that others don’t see from the Bible that women are not to hold certain positions of leadership. Attitudes like the one you’ve displayed here are certainly not going to contribute anything useful to the discussion.

  • My bad, I didn’t mean the book was by the original author, I meant the original author of the post left that comment, I’ll correct my post.

    I don’t try to enter in the discussion when I leave links, I just drop a bunch of links with my initial feelings towards them at times, which I should probably rethink. If I ever approach this topic on here I will let you know and will approach it a bit more humbly than this post, sorry if I seemed to harsh. I will correct that now.

  • Great links. I’ve used stumble video before. The door handles one is really interesting I like the perspective they take. And thanks for leading me to veoh.
