50 Crucial Questions About Manhood and Womanhood by John Piper and Wayne Grudem.
23. How can you be in favor of women prophesying in church but not in favor of women being pastors and elders? Isn’t prophecy at the very heart of those roles?
No. The role of pastor/elder is primarily governance and teaching (1 Timothy 5:17). In the list of qualifications for elders the prophetic gift is not mentioned, but the ability to teach is (1 Timothy 3:2). In Ephesians 4:11, prophets are distinguished from pastor-teachers. And even though men learn from prophecies that women give, Paul distinguishes the gift of prophecy from the gift of teaching (Romans 12:6-7; 1 Corinthians 12:28). Women are nowhere forbidden to prophesy. Paul simply regulates the demeanor in which they prophesy so as not to compromise the principle of the spiritual leadership of men (1 Corinthians 11:5-10).
Prophecy in the worship of the early church was not the kind of authoritative, infallible revelation we associate with the written prophecies of the Old Testament.6 It was a report in human words based on a spontaneous, personal revelation from the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 14:30) for the purpose of edification, encouragement, consolation, conviction, and guidance (1 Corinthians 14:3, 24-25; Acts 21:4; 16:6-10). It was not necessarily free from a mixture of human error, and thus needed assessment (1 Thessalonians 5:19-20; 1 Corinthians 14:29) on the basis of the apostolic (Biblical) teaching (1 Corinthians 14:36-38; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3). Prophecy in the early church did not correspond to the sermon today or to a formal exposition of Scripture. Both women and men could stand and share what they believed God had brought to mind for the good of the church. The testing of this word and the regular teaching ministry was the responsibility of the elder-teachers. This latter role is the one Paul assigns uniquely to men.
“I have opinions on all the animals, but Hanatamago, if you’re m-meaning in general, she’s really a nice girl. Well she is t-to everyone, and cool, but I don’t mean a-anything of it! She’s a good dog… Oh Dieu… *blushes*”
To get something clear, u will be recording the all accesses and listing them for each week just not the day after the show but sometime during the week?
I will be recording All Access each week for my own personal files, if people ask, I will do my best to upload them publicly sometime on Wednesday’s… But I just can’t do Tuesday mornings or Tuesday’s at all this season. (Maybe on a few occasions I can squeeze it on Tues, but it wouldn’t be regular). So I’ll always have it recorded it’s just a matter of when I can get it up. *
*If someone else has recorded the full web show & has it up by Tuesday/Wednesday, then I’ll just share that.. If not just ask me, but be prepared to wait, until my schedule permits..
Do u think Laurie was being a little over confident when she said that dwts was like the congratulations jog after the olympics?
Lol No.. A lot of Olympians feel that way. To be fair this show IS their victory lap, which is why they do the show right after the Olympics. To capitalize on the current attention & applause America gives them. I think she meant it in a sense that she gets to see all the love from America through the votes & comments by doing this show. Which is how most find success on this show, Kristi, Shawn, Apolo etc, from the residual love from the Olympics . I don’t think she’s implying she’s going automatically going to win but it’s nothing wrong being confident either, but I don’t think it was over confident at all.
What would our dead Presidents have to say about Trump, or at least those who are recent enough to get the basics about modern day politics? Also, if someone from the future told you that Trump would be the GOP nominee for President someday, back in 2007 when you watching WrestleMania 23 right at the moment when he tackles Vince McMahon, how would you have responded? "What kind of dystopia has come to fruition?"

(1/2) I really need help. I dont mean any disrespect so if this seems disrespectful i'm sorry. I never thought about my gender. Everyone always called me "boy" and i never paused. But after reading this blog and a couple other sites, i dont think that is right. I have never thought of myself as a boy - its more like i put up with the label. But the past few weeks I am now questioning my gender. I feel like a lightbulb has gone off that explains a lot.
(2/2) But i think the fact i am questioning at 23 years old means i cant be trans. I think i should have figured it out a long time ago. People grow up always knowing their gender, don’t they? So if i didnt figure it out by my teens then i must just be confused. What i feel must not be what trans people feel. I’m just weird. Right? Can you help guide me?
First: There is nothing about this ask that is disrespectful!
About your question: You can be trans no matter what age you are. Some trans people figure their gender in kindergarden or preschool. Many trans people start questioning their gender during puberty. There is also many trans people who find out that they aren’t their assigned gender at birth when they are adults. I’ve even watched some documentary about a transwoman, who started to socially transition at the age of 70.
You definitely aren’t weird. We can’t tell you if you are trans or not because you are the only person who truly knows. But as I said I totally can be trans if you are 23. Not every trans person finds out about their gender the same way and at the same age.
If you need someone to talk to in private you can always message me at @gottkomplexx
Questions 4, 23, and 41 for the Shepard(s) of your choice! :D
Oh, thank you very much for asking! :) When I have to choose, I think I can’t choose between my children, even if Jessica is my canon, I love them all, so I will do it for my three Shepards that I already played with and the current Shepard, Amanda, that I’m playing ME3. xD In the order I played: Jessica ‘Jess’ Shepard, Keira Shepard, Gustav ‘Gus’ Shepard (Gustav Bertrand in my headcanon) and Amanda Shepard. God, it is tooo big, so it is under “continue”. Sorry for all the long post, I think I got too excited this time. hehe I loved the questions. xD
04. What are their favorite traits about their lover? (one psychological and one physical)
Jessica: That is difficult to choose, since Jessica probably love a lot of things about Garrus. But at least during the war, what she loved most about Garrus was his sense of humor. She always found it very charming and he is always able to make her laugh, even for a bit, no matter if she was under so much pressure and stress, talking to Garrus, hear his humorous comments, always makes her feel more comfortable. It may not seem a big deal, but making fun of their own disgrace made that Jessica able to face all the war with more optimism. More than she ever imagine she could handle. What she likes most on his physical is his mouth. She actually finds turians very attractive, but their mouth is what call her attention most, she loves how his mandible moves, it is very unique and different from all the races she met in the galaxy.
Keira: For the first time Keira met Thane, she already liked him, but because she found him very exciting. He was an assassin, very dangerous to his enemies and she always liked the danger and risk. But as she was talking to him, she understood him better. Her conception about him changed a bit, but she still liked him and eventually loved him. What she loves about Thane most is his sensibility. It is a strange thing for someone like Keira, but she loved that he had the sensibility to fight for his son and to try to redeem himself and his past. Keira was trying to find a purpose, she was an hedonist, she killed many and she risked her life and other’s life many times too. But she never found an answer in those things. But she found it in Thane’s sensibility, because he shows her that her life matters and that she is not completely lost. As for his physical appearance, she kinda finds him very attractive, but what she likes most is his eyes. She can look at it for hours and be hypnotized.
