Your Sunday-School teacher/director was using the class for a personal agenda? A few years ago I gave into a friend's pressure to visit a Sunday School class that is normally taught by a deacon. (I'm not at this church any longer btw). I picked the day when the normal teacher was sick and had asked his friend to substitute. This particular class was taught "lecture" style, and we weren't more than 5 minutes into the lesson when it became clear the man was VERY ticked with the female gender. I don't know if he had a fight with his wife or what. He started out in Timothy, and got off on a tangent saying men need to be wary of all women as all women are trying to seduce them, claiming we can't help it, it is in our nature. Then he started saying women have no understanding of the important of discipline, and used mothers who allow children to run wild in waiting rooms as proof of his point, and on and on and on it went. Men and women started walking out, some were muttering loudly. He then moved into how women should not be allowed to work because they only demeaned and embarrassed their spouses if they did. He ended his tirade with, "And I don't want any of you to come up to me after this and tell me how wrong I am." Another time a man was teaching a similiar class and made a remark that a great many of the class thought was incorrect. One man, whom most of us knew, raised his hand and said, "I'm sorry, but I disagree with your interrpretation." The man who was teaching the class literally sneered and said, "Yes, well, I'm sure you do, but you see, I was a member of Dr. Criswell's congregation, I think my understanding of scripture exceeds yours." The first man said, "Really?" Another man lifted his hand and said, "Maybe you should find out who you just spoke down to son. That man ~taught~ bible to Dr. Criswell." He was accurate. The old man who had been told he was wrong was a retired minister and former theology professor. How do you handle that kind of thing? I would have laughed had it not really been such a serious thing for such ego to rule in God's house instead of God ruling in God's house.
