"Heads Up!" Mr. Monte, you are to be greatly commended for the stand you've taken concerning your personal convictions according to your understanding of The Word of God. The subject of Women being the Head over the Body of Christ is indeed becoming a controversial issue in this day and age. It is certainly not that we, as individuals, cannot grow in our comprehension of The Holy Scriptures, and come to develop more maturely (in accordance to His Will) as we more and more take on The Mind of Christ, but until then, one can only hold fast, if they are sincere before Him, to that which he firmly believes. If we, as His people, are found to be in error before Him, it is then God Who will make even that clear to us. Until then, one thing stands sure: Whatever is true, God changes not. Your message is delivered directly, yet without causing offense. Being that I am a woman, not only am I not offended by that which you have stated in your sermon, but I respect your speaking out without wavering...as really any Christian in search of truth should respect as well, whether or not they agree with you. Stability is the heart of a true Pastor, and, might I add, it is very refreshing these days to actually be able to glimpse that character in an undershepherd of The Lord now and then. THANK YOU SIR.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much for this sermon. Christians have to know the word. Especially in these days. The family is falling apart even in the body. Roles have been reversed due to lack of knowledge of the bible. Women have not been given the responsibility to be pastors but to teach. women are o come under th man. It is a very important responsibility for the woman to teach their children to be a light to those who are young women. For a woman to pastor a church will only confuse those who are new christians as well as the lost. For the word says...The husband is to love his wife as the Lord loves the church. In this verse, it states clearly the man is the head in the home and in the body. Many women do not want to hear ths as submission has been distorted by rebellion. A christian cannot go against the word of God and claim to be a christian. Obedience is more than sacrifice.
Pastor Monte, senior pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Avon, IN, was saved as a boy in January of his 8th grade school year, where he attended Fourth Baptist Christian Day School in Minneapolis. By 9th grade, the Lord had called him to preach under the ministry of his youth...
