>>There are a lot of men these days who are just that "a mouth piece" spewing mindless drek out of their mouths and not contributing to the teachings and welfare of their congregations. They could use a lot of "listening and learning" themselves. Which is why I believe God is raising up women today to fill those gaps. But I don't think that was so much the point I was trying to make as the point about "humility".<<
For what it's worth, I agree. Gap-fillers such as yourself and Susie and others, if I can say that without casting too big of a stumbling block before you all. :)
But back to Paul: He was and is a continuing, powerful voice of insight into the word for me in particular. That, perhaps because of, or in spite of, the fact I've always "known" he was gay. I know it is difficult to explain because I just can "feel" it, to use Claude's words.
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
