    Wonder if they still teach as Robert Schuller did that man biggest problem is NOT being sinners, but that we need to realise that we have a low self esteem problem!

    Sadly, many leaders in the church are falling for the women's equality nonsense. If it were up to me it would disqualify RW from eldership in not leading his family well in this area. "Must" and "husband of one wife" are not rocket science terms.

    The excerpts from Kay Warren's appearance at Crystal Cathedral certainly didn't sound like a sermon to me. Sounded like a motivational speech. That's not preaching, Joel O notwithstanding.

    And the reporter who described her as a "guest pastor" showed his ignorance. She's not a pastor.

    We may be making too much of her appearance there.

    Good for her. I just love to see all the Warren haters flipping out that his wife would go and speak at another church. He should be removed, she's a she for goodness sake!

    FYI - she was there to speak about her new book which is about she learned to deal with with depression and how her own treatment was hampered by the perception of those with depression in the church, so not too sure that would strictly be in the sermon category.

    My concern was NOT with her speaking, but at that church!

    Do they still promote quasi new age self help theology?

    Ken Silva's [Apprising Ministries] Christian Research Network certainly isn't taking the sweep-it-under-the-rug route with this:

    Jerome, Ken Silva makes a good point. I questioned the use of the term preaching, but the larger point is why she was there in the first place.

    The passage, even according to leading complementarians, is talking about polygamy, not gender. If we interpret this passage to mean only men can serve, we have to interpret the 10th commandment to mean only men can covet, since they're told not to covet their neighbor's wife. Would a woman coveting her neighbor's husband not actually be considered coveting?

    Oh, and Mrs. Warren, not her husband, is responsible for her actions. If my wife decided she wanted to accept an invitation to preach, I would be her decision, regardless of my own belief on the matter.

    You use bad grammar. Should we refuse to talk to you?

    Wrong. Husband of one wife implies gender by the very definition of what this is.
    Non sequitur, I was talking about being a "pastor" (elder) not serving. We are all called to serve, we are not all called to be elders.

    Wrong again.
    Mrs. Warren falls under both Rick's leadership in the home and in the church. A submissive wife would not deliberately violate her husband's beliefs based on Scripture.

    Sorry that I did not meet the grammar review required before posting here, but what did you think of the warrens seeming to approve false teacher/doctrine?

    You're going against most egalitarian and complementarian scholars with this opinion. Again, if women can't hold office according to this passage, they also aren't able to covet.

    She might if she knew in her heart they were wrong. Men will not have to give an account for the actions of their wives. Women will account for their own actions.

    Of course, there is no biblical reason why women should submit to men, since we are all called to submit to each other in light of Eph. 5. Neither is there any biblical reason women cannot preach or teach.

    Read some scholarship before assuming a surface reading of an english translation is good enough.

    There is a grammar review required before posting anywhere: your own.

    I don't think they are approving of any false doctrine simply by her speaking there. I'm not big fans of the Warrens or the Schullers, but we're reading too much into this.

    Typical. Anyone that disagrees with you on this topic is uneducated, right?

    Oh, and instead of bashing others for their grammar, why don't you check that you properly capitalize words?

    How one can get "wife of one husband" out of "husband of one wife" is beyond me.
