They were agreed in the survey they had made of the land and in the judgment they passed upon the productiveness of the soil. There was no dispute whatever about the elementary facts which they had noted and brought together. What eye had seen and what ear had heard they related with admirable straightforwardness and accuracy. But the difference was in their interpretation of the facts and the programme it might be wise to follow in the near future. An optimist may lie, especially when he is entering upon the perilous task of special pleading, and a pessimist may also lie, although perhaps not quite so often; but this was not the sin of either the two or the ten. As a body they were quite honest. Caleb and Joshua were not dreamers, nor was their report vitiated by hallucinations. It was a question of religion that separated them from their colleagues and brought them into violent collision. They looked at the problem from the T. O. Selby, The God of the Patriarch, 238. 'A. Maclaren. view-point of God's Covenant, and thought of themselves as links in a firmly welded chain of providential decrees.1 4. It is not much wonder that the news daunted the people. They were thoroughly frightened. They were a young people, only a year or two out of bondage. They had had the great deliverance of the Red Sea to encourage them; but their fears might tell them that that had been a stroke of good fortune on which they could not reckon again. And now, in their deep depression, there rose again that thought--Egypt; as before their hunger had said, Egypt with its flesh-pots rather than this light bread, so now their fears said, Egypt, where at least we were safe, where we could live, though it was in bondage, ..
Description : What do you believe about women's roles in church leadership? Should women lead groups that include men? Should women preach? Should women be ordained? More importantly, why do you believe what you believe? Plenty of books exist telling women what to think; precious few help women think for themselves, particularly about theological issues. Women, Leadership, and the Bible helps women learn to interpret the Bible and discern for themselves answers to their questions about women's roles in the church, along with any other issue they may face in life. In straightforward, plain language, Dr. Natalie Eastman introduces women to a five-step, easy-to-follow process for studying the Bible and interpreting what they study. This book encourages women that they can think for themselves and can analyze significant theological issues, despite any hesitations they may have, any conflict surrounding an issue, or any lack of theological training. By the time readers finish this book, they will have a biblically defendable, theologically reasoned, and thoroughly discerned understanding of what they believe Scripture says about women's roles and how that understanding could play out within the church. No longer will they feel as though they have nothing to contribute when the subject of women's roles--or any other of life's theological questions--arises.

Description : With all my degrees and knowledge, how could I have lived with my head in the sand for so long? I'm thinking of nicknaming myself 'Ostrich'... head in the sand, backside flopping around in the air, going around in circles, tripping over my own long legs and awkward feet, never getting anywhere at all. it certainly seems an appropriate label, especially given the latest mess I'm now working my way through.Dr. Magdalena LaSige, a thirty-three-year-old criminal archepsychologist, throws herself headfirst into finding a kidnapped Carmelite nun—the sister of her former professor, The handsome and wealthy Dr. Peter Janus.

Will she solve the mystery, or will the truth behind the deceptions leave Magdalena paralyzed by the scorpion's sting?

Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... chapter V. the right defined. I Cor., xiv: 33-38--"(33) For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace; as in all the churches of the saints. "(34) Let the women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but let them be in subjection, as also saith the law. (35) And if they would learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home: for it is shameful for a woman to speak in the church. (36) What? Was it from you that the word of God went forth? Or came it unto you alone? "(37) If any man thinketh himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him take knowledge of the things which I write unto you, that they are the commandment of the Lord. (38) But if any man is ignorant, let him be ignorant." Here, according to the opinions of all the commentators we are acquainted with, is a virtual sentence of condemnation upon the doctrine we have announced in the preceding chapters. The "commandment of the Lord" (vs. 37) is apparently directed against the public prophesying of women. It inculcates " keeping silence" (vs. 34) and learning "at home" (vs. 35), and places a ban upon "speaking" (vs. 34, 35). So obviously does this seem to be a prohibition of all speaking in public assemblies that the critics, to whom we are wont to turn for light upon the meaning of the sacred words, are generally agreed in giving that interpretation, and in bowing to a supposed necessity for imposing correspondingly narrow bounds upon Joel's doctrine of privilege. We hope to show that this necessity is not altogether what it has been supposed to be, and that the text before us admits of and requires a slightly different treatment from what it has received--a difference that we are sanguine enough to believe will give an entirely new...
Description : How can you forgive those who have hurt you? How can you know that God has forgiven you? In this new addition to the Women of the Word Bible study series, readers learn how to accept God's forgiveness for their sins and to extend forgiveness to others. Through personal stories any woman can relate to--about family, career, and church--The Gift of Forgiveness deals honestly and compassionately with this tough yet necessary choice: the choice to forgive.

Readers will examine the challenges of accepting and offering forgiveness, dig into the teachings of Scripture, and reflect on their own relationships.

Description : What does it mean to be a woman? The current cultural ideal for womanhood encourages women to be strident, sexual, self-centered, independent -- and above all -- powerful and in control. But sadly, this model of womanhood hasn't delivered the happiness and fulfillment it promised. The Bible teaches that it's not up to us to decide what womanhood is all about. God created male and female for a very specific purpose. His design isn't arbitrary or unimportant. It is very intentional and He wants women to discover, embrace, and delight in the beauty of His design. He's looking for True Women! Bible teachers Mary A. Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss share the key fundamentals of biblical womanhood in this eight week study. Each week includes five daily individual lessons leading to a group time of sharing and digging deeper into God's Word. And to enhance this time of learning together, on-line videos are available featuring Mary and Nancy as they encourage women to discover and embrace God's design and mission for their lives. Visit TrueWoman101.com to view the videos and download additional study resources. A True Woman Book The goal of the True Woman publishing line is to encourage women to: Discover, embrace, and delight in God's divine design and mission for their lives Reflect the beauty and heart of Jesus Christ to their world Intentionally pass the baton of Truth on to the next generation Pray earnestly for an outpouring of God's Spirit in their families, churches, nation and world
