Church and Culture, Oil and Water

This video is of Voddie Baucham on CNN, talking about Sarah Palin. Watch as the newslady cannot understand that Voddie takes his orders from the Bible, not man, feminism, or "diversity" quotas.

The CNN newslady just can't seem to understand how many Christians can support Palin for VP when they (gasp) won't let women preach from the pulpit. The most important point is that the church operates on different rules than society (or at least, it should). Many people, probably including some Christians, just canNOT seem to grasp this. I don't blame them...from the outside looking in, we're all a bunch of religious nuts anyways ;) I'd also venture to say that many Christians who share Baucham's convictions probably still do not support the McCain-Palin ticket.

Hopefully, there will always be a number of Christians who will actually take a stand against the sinful portions of whatever worldly fashion is "cool" at the time, whether it's liberalism OR conservatism...or something else entirely.

    Great find! I think Voddie handled it extremely well. I hope we get to hear them again on this topic, as they hinted.

    I don't really buy the idea that a woman leader of the country is evidence of God's judgment. Isa 3:12 says

    "My people--infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths."

    Does "My people" mean a pluralistic, secular nation? I don't think so. In context it meant Israel. Today the parallel would be the church, not the USA. So it would be problematic for a woman to rule over the church, but not over a secular government.
