The Jouney Home, 6/30/03 I don't know how many of you get this show with host Marcus Grodie. Each night he has guests who converted from various denominations to Catholicism. I didn't catch the name of the guests tonight but found it intriguing. Most of these conversion stories, especially where a pastor converts start with the man. The woman was the one who got the ball rolling this time with a very interesting dilema. I believe it is in timothy where Paul says that a woman shouldn't wear what a man does and that she should wear a head covering. Well the woman on the show was the wife of an Evangelical Menonite. She started studying what a woman should wear. The verse mentioned above gave her problems. Some pastors who she listened to said that it was a past custom and not to worry about it. Some, that you should wear a dress but that it was not essential. Some said that women MUST wear dresses. Still others had it down to the sleave length. Of course each of these claimed that there view was supported by scripture and each claimed equal validity to the others. Some stated that it had to do with submissiveness to the husband. This of course created quite a conflict in her with those who said that a woman had to disobey her husband if he said that it was not neccessary and go with the word of God. Quite problematic to say the least. What was she to do? Well she decided to go with the conservative view. This caused problems in her marriage and for her husband who was a pastor. Parishioners (or whatever the menonites call them) started noticing that all she wore was dresses. He didn't agree with her interprutation and also didn't require it of their daughter. Well to make a long story short, the finally decided there had to be an authority outside of scripture to keep watch over issues like this. Of course there are a hundred of them. Baptism, the Lord's Supper, etc. etc.. Who's right? Does it matter. Seems to me it does. I thought this would be a nice little counter to Mozeir's Jack Chick posts. Perhaps with a little more class however. Check out Mr. Grodie. He comes on at 7pm Central I believe. I don't always catch him. But I am glad I did tonight. Blessings I am still scaling back my posting activities. But I may post from time to time. I just cant spend the kind of time I was before. Enjoy discussing this one.
