Shadows of Divine Things

My Photo
Location: Texas, United States

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

New Poll

Over to the left under the clock is a new poll that I have posted. I am very interested to see what the various opinions will be on this issue, so please feel free to vote.

Also, if you do not mind, please post your reasons for voting the way you did (i.e. why you voted "yes"; why "no"; etc.).

Last thing of note about the poll. It was a free service provided by Bravenet so there will probably be "pop-ups" which may come up on your screen (unless you have a pop-up blocker service). Please excuse any pop-ups that may come up. I will remove the poll in about a week and any pop-ups that came with the service will be eliminated with the removal of the poll from the blog.

Thank you for voting and do feel free to post why you voted the way you did in the comments section of this post.

I voted no because Scripture clearly teaches it... If we start overuling Scripture, where do we stop. That being said, I don't fully understand why women cannot teach Bible studies with men present.

The bible teaches all sorts of things, some of which have been fulfilled/replaced already in the canon. In this case, think of 'no male or female' in Christ Jesus (Gal). Not only that, we have to contextualise what the bible teaches, and not suppose something ontological about women. It's easy for us men to say 'no women preachers'. But the truth is, they are often a lot more giften than men in preaching. The bible is not a treausry of propositions for us to mindlessly impliment in the church.
I voted a big 'yes' to women preachers.
