The video posted below is from Elevate "Church" in Frisco, Texas, pastrix Sheila Craft presiding.
There are so many things that are wrong with this short video. To help you see these problems we will ask a few questions.
1. Is this an example of what the Apostle Paul admonished in Titus 2:3-5 or the opposite?
“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure...”
2. Is the message that "pastrix" Sheila is giving Biblical or is it a "lovers of self" type message that scratches itching ears?
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” (2 Timothy 3:1–5)
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths” (2 Timothy 4:3–4)
3. Then there is the issue of female pastors...does the Bible permit pastrix Sheila to be a pastrix?
“As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says.” (1 Corinthians 14:33–34)
“Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor” (1 Timothy 2:11–15)
Could it be possible that the reason these women are strutting their stuff in a "church" and mistakenly think this is a godly thing for them to be doing because the pastrix who is teaching them is a rebellious heretic and the message she is teaching isn't what the Bible actually teaches? Are these women demonstrating the fruit of repentance in their lives through the sin convicting work of the Holy Spirit? Does this glorify Jesus or does it glorify themselves? What do you think?
THIS is what it means to take God's name in vain! It means lying about God and His Word for your own personal gain. The folks over at bibleprosperityplan.com will have to explain this blasphemy to God Himself on the day of judgement and things will not go well for them unless they repent of their grievous sins against God and receive Christ's forgiveness.
