Women as Pastors

Recently an article was posted by Shane Idleman, founder and pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship in Southern California.  It is one of the best we have seen written on the topic of women in the pastorate.

In years past we served in a mainline denomination that allowed women to be ordained in pastoral ministry and we served in her church for a time.   Through that experience we saw many of the problems that Shane talks about in this article. We feel he has captured the heart of Father as he writes this well balanced, scriptural approach to this subject.  His article follows.  Blessings,   Roger and Gerri

Let me begin by saying that I know and appreciate many women who have been recognized as pastors. They are diligent, steadfast and hard-working. Our country […]

THE ONE SECRET THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR MARRIAGE ~ Ann Wilson

Sometimes it can creep into our lives with an unwelcome stealth. I would never have conceived that I could be surrounded by a husband, kids, and friends, and yet still feel its clutches suffocating my heart. But there I was, married 10 years, two kids, busier than ever, and yet lonelier than I had ever been. And it seemed to me that my husband was totally oblivious to my needs and more often than not, to me!
He was a good man, co-founder of a megachurch, chaplain for the Detroit Lions, inspiring on stage and a leader of men. Everyone loved him and wanted to follow him but I was left in his dust.
My heart felt bruised and cold like the chilling winds that skate over Lake Michigan in the dead […]

TREASON IS REBELLION ON STEROIDS by Roger Taylor

I never thought I’d live to see the day that treason became acceptable in the USA! Sadly, that day has arrived and we as a nation have lost our identity! American citizens are no longer required to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Those who openly reject our established way of life, our democratic republic and capitalism in particular are allowed to run for and hold public office. They even run for President. It is obvious that these socialist, Marxists, communists, Nazis, and other perverse, destructive characters are becoming more and more popular in our nation since they are being mainstreamed and elected to public office.
When treason becomes acceptable, self-destruction is inevitable. God established America on a solid, […]

When God Says ‘No’ by Roger

While we were living in South Carolina our pastor asked Gerri and I to fill in for him on a Sunday morning. The night before, the Lord gave me two skits to do for the service! First of all I don’t do skits. I had never done anything like that! Gerri is the drama queen! However, I pushed through my fear and it turned out great!
Now, let me share the skit having to do with God saying ‘no’. I played a 14 year old boy. I asked a friend in the service to play my Dad in the skit. My instruction to him was no matter what I say your answer is to be ‘no’ and then ad lib. Here is the […]

A Real Relationship, Or Just Dating? by Christen Limbaugh Bloom

Have you ever been in a relationship in which you felt you were giving 90 percent and the other person was giving 10? You put in so much effort to make that person feel confident or loved and that person completely took you for granted. They talked. You listened. But nothing was ever reciprocated.
Before my relationship with Jesus changed, I used to say half-hearted prayers before I went to sleep. They were, for the most part, apologies for how I had come up short and cries for help to save me from all of the messes I had made. But you know what they weren’t? – a conversation.
Prayer is meant to be both a conversation and an invitation for God to participate in our lives. I did not understand this […]

Mastering Love – Mastering Life by Roger

Father says that life is love and love is life, therefore if we master love we can then master life. To me this means I must master love in order to experience life to its fullest potential. Like it or not Father has designed the only pathway that will lead us to life’s full potential and He is that pathway. He is love and the only true source of love available to mankind. If we are to master love we must have the empowerment of His grace at work in us to dethrone self and in humility become God centered. Supernatural encounters with Father, Son and Holy Spirit will strengthen our resolve, our commitment, and our determination to become the supernatural Child of God that we were created to be. […]

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES AT PITFH by Roger

A Godly leader must be:

  • Empowered by love
  • Bathed in humility
  • Steadfast in authority.

A Godly leader must not lord it over their subordinates. This is Jesus’ command. A Godly leader invites subordinates to participate in the decision making process, give their opinion, share their experience, ask questions, hear from the Lord and contribute. A Godly leader must have authority and responsibility. He or she is responsible for both. A Godly leader must have the ability to bring correction and if necessary, disciplinary action to their team. At the same time we must be able to give our team permission to not be perfect. Mistakes are to be expected, just not repeated. A Godly leader must be secure enough and responsible enough to teach their subordinates everything they know so that […]

Right is Wrong and Wrong is Right by Roger

THE EVIDENCE IS IN,  Vol II

EVIDENCE #9:  Right is wrong and wrong is right.

Do you remember the Scripture that says “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil?” Well, it’s here! Almost daily the news media spreads the reality that what was once considered right is now wrong, and what was once considered wrong is now right! The table is upside down and confusion is our norm! It’s like there is a mesmerizing spirit that has descended on our society as a result of our corporate rejection of God and that spirit is deceiving us into accepting evil as good!

In our eBook Prayer Ministry there is a chapter titled “The Lies We Live By.” In that chapter we try to […]
