Description

When treating the subject of women elders in the church we are not dealing with the affairs of a secular society and so it has nothing to do with women's rights, equality of sex or race in the world. This matter only relates to men and women in a Christian church. It is about the rules of the house of God, which is the church of the living God and rules for those who are members of the body of Christ and members of an heavenly county. The Suffragettes Emmeline Pankhurst 1858 -1928) was a Suffragette and worked very hard to bring equal rights for women to vote as men. In the year of her death all women over 21 gained the right to vote. The Suffragette movement brought about many changes for the better in a secular society but not so for women seeking to follow Christian principles. One of her famous quotes was, "Trust in God She shall provide." Terms which do not reflect Christian beliefs. We know God will provide and He is not a she. In the USA and the UK, women's political rights were brought into general political consciousness by the suffragettes and since then there have been legal rights granted to the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups, same sex marriages, along with the development of the feminist movement and the appointment of persons from the LBGT community to responsible positions in the Church of England. All of this has caused conflict in the Christian community due to differences beliefs of right and wrong. This book seeks to show what the bible has to say about the role of women in the church and family. Since these rules are taught by the Apostles of Christ they are the word of God to us and we should obey. The secular world may differ and turn from the narrow path taught in scripture but we should follow the word of God, this is our wisdom.show more

About MR David Clarke Cert E

About the author: David Clarke was born in Oldham, Lancashire, in 1949. He was educated and trained as a lecturer, at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, and graduated with a Certificate in Education, awarded by Birmingham University, in 1978. However his earlier life had been rather different. He and his brother Michael were both convicted criminals and were sent to prison for malicious wounding and carrying a fire arm without a license. They grew up in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, during the 60's, and they were MOD's where they became criminals. On the 16th January, 1970, David had a bad trip on LSD, during which time he called out to God to help him and Jesus spoke to him. He learned to read to educate himself and went on to Higher Education and for the next 14 years read the bible, various classical Christian literature and joined the Bierton Strict and Particular Baptists, in 1976. He became a lecturer in electronics, the church secretary and was called by the Lord, and sent by the church to preach, in 1982. The Bierton church became a Gospel Standard listed cause on 16th January, 1981, Michael, David's brother was unaffected by David's conversion and continued his flamboyant style. Due to errors in doctrine and practice David withdrew from the Bierton church and wrote his first book, "The Bierton Crisis"', that explains the reason for his secession and with a view to help others. In 1995, David got news of his brothers arrest and later imprisonment in the Philippines and his conversion from crime to Christ, in 1999, that was 5 years into his 16 year prison sentence he published their story in, "Converted on LSD Trip." And a further edition called "Bierton Strict and Particular Baptists," for Christians who had not lived in the margins of society. David then went on a preaching mission to the Philippines in order to bring relief and help to Michael. During this mission David and Gordon Smith preached the gospel to hundreds of convicted criminals, including many on Death Row. This story is told Michael and David's joint book, "Trojan Warriors" that contains 66 life giving testimonies, of some of the most notorious criminals in Far East Asia, who had become Christians in New Bilibid Prison. David writes of his ongoing mission work in his other publications. "And he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of fishes which they had taken": Luke 5 verse 9.show more
