Bible Study - Theology
Women in ministry
part 1 -
- YWAM podcast - Loren Cunningham on releasing women to minister
freely as God calls them, looking at applicable Biblical passages.
part 1 and
- YWAM podcast - Lynn Green shares on reconciliation from Scripture
and from personal testimony--how the ministry of reconciliation is
central to the gospel ministry. He led a reconciliation walk retracing the
route of the first Crusade on the 900th anniversary, renouncing the
violence and apologizing for the acts of the crusaders, and sharing the
peace and life that Jesus came to bring.
"900 years ago our forefathers carried the Name of Jesus Christ in
battle across the Middle East. Fueled by fear, greed, and hatred, they
betrayed the Name of Christ by conducting themselves in a manner
contrary to his wishes and character. The Crusaders lifted the banner of
the cross above your people. By this act, they corrupted its true
meaning of reconciliation, forgiveness, and selfless love. On the
anniversary of the first Crusade, we also carry the Name of Christ. We
wish to retrace the footsteps of the crusaders in apology for their
deeds and in demonstration of the true meaning of the cross. We deeply
regret the atrocities committed in the name of Christ by our
predecessors. We renounce greed, hatred, and fear, and condemn all
violence done in the name of Jesus Christ. Where they were motivated by
hatred and prejudice, we are for love and brotherhood. Jesus the Messiah
came to give life. Forgive us for allowing his Name to be associated
with death. Please accept again the true meaning of the Messiah's words:
'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to bring
good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captive
and recovery of sight to the blind, and let the oppressed go free--to
proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.'"
