Short Take from The Christian Worldview program on Why Do Christian Leaders Compromise?

Listen to the entire program here:


Here is another short take the Christian worldview with David, Travis, why does ordaining female pastors seen in the mainline denominations always seem to lead to compromise on other issues like sexual issues homosexuality transgender is on the mainline denominations are fully in favor of that. Now integrating into churches. It also leads away from a focus on the saving Gospel of Christ salvation issues to more social justice.

Why does it always seem to be that same progression it's connected to the question you just asked about first and second order issues.

If you equivocate on obedience to what the Bible clearly says in one issue where you draw the line and start obeying it.

Other issues when you give ground and compromise than the culture continues to pressure you toward a tort. A complete compromise and a complete complete abandonment and ultimately apostasy from Scripture so this is this is come out enough in a hermeneutical debate in our names. In 1991 Piper grid of general editors for recovering Biblical manhood and womanhood and they were responding then to evangelical feminism in 2004 of response was published about call discovering biblical inequality and the subtitle was complementarity without hierarchy, so the editors all the all the authors.

The article in our articles in that book there responding and pushing back against Piper and greeted him there, so calling themselves complementarity. It's in yet, they were not complementarity say were going under the banner comp mentoring this and just like Rick Warren said when I could be pushed by the culture were not to follow tradition were totally biblical with a biblical basis for everything we do. Because of these authors are saying as well. And yet there compromising on the issue of women in ministry. William Webb wrote a couple of articles in that volume introducing something called the redemptive movement hermeneutic. He since published a book in 2009 call slaves, women and homosexuals exploring the hermeneutics of cultural analysis without getting in the weeds of that is describing. We need to see the Bible more as a dynamic movement kind of attacks rather than static and to read the Bible that way and to develop our ethics.

That way, so it's kind of on a sliding scale as the culture moves that's exactly what you hear in the in the constitutional debates of the U.S. Constitution is of the static text that we are tech should listen. We read the book we read that text as the authors intended or do we continue to lead the development of a dynamic and related greeted with a view to the changes in the culture.

So that's that same thing happened happening constitutional law and interpretation happens also. First Scripture as well. This is been a short take the Christian will be with David Wheaton.
