Hello!

Thank you for joining us again on Into the Pray.

I'll be returning to Hamlet’s soliloquy next week.

Suffice to say for this 33rd episode in 1 Corinthians, we now broach one of the most important theological errors of our day:- "progressive" "christian" liberalism.

What of head coverings? Are egalitarians correct when they maintain that there is no longer male and female in Christ and that, therefore, "Why shouldn't women lead a church?!" (Galatians 3:28). What might be the result if they’re not?

Is it inconsistent to follow Paul's teaching in 1 Timothy 2 (that God has said that eldership is for men only) but not follow suit in 1 Corinthians 11? If women shouldn’t lead churches today why aren't women wearing head coverings today?

What are our modern church practices actually based on? Rock or sand?

Our rock-solid belief is that the reason we're seeing the shocking abhorrences in secular society today (including the abuse of our precious children) is as a result of this kind of male/female error ruining the Body of Christ. When we ignore God’s Word, we are rendered impotent, vulnerable and, ultimately, irrelevant to the world who so desperately need faithful Christian witness.

We have decapitated our Head, Christ. (See this image)

Next week we come to the Lord's Supper. Perhaps you would get some bread and wine to take communion. Yes, we come to remember Him, to thank and praise and worship Him but also to pray for mercy and forgiveness and to plead for His vision - and His headship - for the way forward.

Would you join us? Let us know what you're thinking.

Essential Reading:

1) Benjamin Merkle article. (Please take time to read this where I have imperfectly communicated the answer to the 1 Corinthians 11 cf. 1 Timothy 2 issue).

2) The Death & Dearth of Spiritual Authority.

3) John Piper visits a mainstream “progressive” “church”.

4) Progressive christianity sites mentioned in the podcast.

This thrice-weekly podcast is essentially a faith-based ministry so if you would like to support it (and our wider work), please consider doing so here. (Would you also consider take a few minutes to leave us a review?). Thank you 🙏

If you would like to watch our latest YouTube video - The Terror of the LORD - you can do so here.

Until next week, let's be found praying, "Come, Lord Jesus!"

Love,
