Women should be silent?

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 8th April 2014 in Women | women,silence,1 Corinthians,1 Timothy,authority,doctrine,marriage
1 Timothy 2:12 - "I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent." Here's an often tricky subject, depending on who you speak to about it. Before I begin, it should be noted here that these words ("woman" and "man") could also be translated as "wife" and "husband", which then changes the thrust of this command quite drastically. This verse, and others similar, are often taken by people to mean that it only applies in a church setting (ignoring the fact that we are the Church - 1 Cor 12:27; Rom 12:5). A little while ago when discussing this topic, an argument was put forth about the 'Woman at the Well' preaching to other...
 

Lent: Day 6 - Ignatius to the Magnesians

Day Six: St. Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to the Magnesians (full text) Who: Ignatius converted at a young age and later became Bishop of Antioch. A friend of Polycarp and fellow disciple of John, there is a long standing tradition that Ignatius was the child that Jesus held in his arms and blessed in Mark 10:13-16 What: Ignatius urges the church to continue in unity, to honour their leadership and to avoid Judaizers who may try to bring false teaching. This letter also gives some valuable insight to early church hierarchy. Why: Ignatius wrote a series of letters to the churches in Asia Minor whilst en route to Rome to face martyrdom by wild beasts in the Col...
 

The Temptations of Jesus: Testing God

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 4th March 2018 in Lent | temptation,testing God,pinnacle,Temple,Jesus,Satan,wilderness,Lent,desert,Armour of God
Here we are at the final temptation that the devil directly attacks Jesus with (I say directly, because next week I’m going to look at the more subtle attacks and temptations we can face). Let’s begin with the text: Matthew 4:5-7 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you,’    and ‘On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” (...
 

Creedal Christians: Introduction

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 29th September 2018 in Early Church | creeds,creedal Christians,creedal,early church,church history
...-4; 10:9; 1 Timothy 3:16, 2 Timothy 2:8; and possibly the more well known one, in Philippians 2:6-11. I encourage you to look them up and read them all, as you’ll see that short, statement based clear expressions of doctrine and belief are intertwined with the Scriptures and life of the Church since the very start. Having more formalised versions just came out of an already existing practice and often had various reasons behind them being required. We’ll look more into those reasons as we carry on through this series and examine each creed in more detail. The creeds I’ll be covering in the coming weeks will be: The Apostles Creed The Nicene Creed The...

Christians and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 20th March 2020 in Coronavirus |
...We currently live in troubled times lately with a lot of uncertainty around us, both locally and globally. But even now as I write this and think on the topic of the virus, one verse in particular springs to mind: Psalm 23:4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of deathI fear no evil;for you are with me;your rod and your staff — they comfort me. It does feel a little bit like we are all walking through “the valley of the shadow of death” at the moment! But as the Psalmist says, “I fear no evil” for God is with us and comforts us. That doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t get sick (or die), but that no matter what is happening aroun...
