This is the Truth Network. And a woman lead a co-ed Bible study.

I would say no. Paul says, I do not allow a woman to teach or as authority over a man. So, teaching is included in that. And they're not to do that because Adam was first created. So, personally, I don't have a problem. But so, what does the scripture say? And so we have to be careful. We don't want to have a woman be the one who's in charge of a Bible study teaching while men are there because then they are then under the authority of that woman in that Bible study and she's in that teaching position.

We don't want that. Number five. What is the difference between people and person when describing the Trinity? People we understand to be individuals like you and me. Persons theologically in the context of the Trinity means something different.

It's similar, but it's different. Personhood means self-awareness, awareness of others, ability to contemplate, to have reciprocity, fellowship with people, can love, can hate, reason. These are attributes of personhood. So, angels have personhood. God has personhood. We have personhood. And that's what we mean by it.

Number four. I was listening to a podcast and this guy was saying that in the Greek and in the strong concordance, it should be our means instead of our man. And when we say our means, we are giving credence to an Egyptian deity. You know, I just get so irritated with that stupidity. I'm sorry, but that's what it is. You mispronounce a word. Now what you're doing is really giving to the Egyptian God. You know, it's just shut up.

I just get so tired of stuff like that. To say that you have to pronounce a certain Greek word the proper way and that if you don't, you're in sin. Where's that in scripture?

It's ridiculous. The actual Greek way of saying it is amen. That's how it is in the Greek.

It's alpha, mu, eta, nu. It's a-m-long-a-n. Amen. That's how it is. But we don't say, we don't say amen. We say, you know, amen. Like Jesus really is pronounced Iesous. That's how it's pronounced. So does this same person say Jesus or say Iesous?

Because in the Greek it's how it's pronounced. It's lame. Number three. If someone says the church is gone after chapter four, Tom.

It's not true. And I'll show you. You go to Revelation 4, 4. Around the throne were 24 thrones and upon the thrones I saw 24 elders sitting clothed in white garments and golden crowns on their heads. 24 elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. It's the church.

They're washed in the white clothing. That's in Revelation 4. In Revelation 5 and when he took the book the four living creatures and the 24 elders fell down before the lamb. So there's a church in Revelation 11 and 24 elders who sit in the thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God. There is a Revelation 11. Revelation 19 and the 24 elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne saying amen. Hallelujah. So the church is there.

It's in reference to the 24 elders. Number two. Let's see. I'm looking in my hate mail and let's see if I can pick one. All right.

How about this? Satan. Really there is no Satan. He is some made-up Christian creature to keep your kind in check. To help us you burned and killed us. Oh this is from a witch.

Okay. You Christians and your, I can't read this word, book think you know everything because it is written by God, end quote. Well your God didn't, I can't read that either.

It was made of legends and myths. You, oh my goodness this person's foul. Oh I can't read this stuff.

Oh there's another one. Wow. You know when I talk to people who are so vitriolic and vile and they just mouth off, I just let them go on and I say is it possible for you to speak without being so insulting and full of hate? You judge us all the expletive time and supposedly if we are God's children then why treat us differently? We are humans. We have feelings.

I have lost my family to you guys. We have an article. I didn't write this. It's a very good article by Rob Shoemaker.

It's on Karm. He got the three volume encyclopedia of wars from Philip and Axelrod which chronicles 1,763 wars that have been waged over the course of human history. Of those wars the authors categorize 123 as being religious in nature which is an astonishingly low 6.98% of all wars. However when one subtracts out those waged in the name of Islam, that's 66 of them, the percentage is cut by more than half to 3.23%. That means less than 7% of all wars in history, recorded history, are religiously related. Now in light of that this guy writes as a person who actually has a brain, so I guess he knows people who don't have brains apparently, you know.

As a person who actually has a brain, I am deeply disappointed in your argument. You honestly think there's like 1700 wars in history and only a handful of them are caused by religion? Yeah that's what the statistics say from the people who did the research and all recorded wars throughout history and the encyclopedia of wars. Yeah it's just scholarly done. Yeah that's why we would say yes but no this guy don't forget this guy has a brain.

Okay and so with his brain he is saying that it's not true. Did he do the research? No. Did he read the book? No.

But he and his brain are gonna tell us how it really is because hey he said as a person that actually has a brain which is implying that the author of the article didn't have a brain. Right. Goodbye goodbye it's time to go. Say goodbye, why is it sad? Makes us remember the good times we've had.

Y'all come back now. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six. For more on Matt and his live syndicated call-in radio show go to Got a question? Matt Slick has your answer. This is the Truth Network.
