Episode 70: Love Your Enemies? Can Women Be Pastors?
In this Episode, John answers two questions from a listener.
1. What does it mean to love your enemies? Are Christians supposed to be doormats?
In Luke 6:27-31, Jesus teaches us this:
27 “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.31 Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.
2. Why does some of the New Testament say women can be pastors while other parts say they can’t?
In answer to this question, I share my understanding of the New Testament about the equality and dignity of women and what that means regarding women pastors.
