Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free? will soon by available online!
I am working on a new video project at the moment, but I am also working to convert each of the 4 DVDs of Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free? to a lower quality online downloadable product. We are working hard so that those with computers around the world may also have access to the DVDs. The entire set will be available for purchase online or each DVD in the 4 DVD set will be available individually as a video download. We have upgraded the security on our web site and are presently working through all of the logistics to make this all possible. it is a huge step forward for our ministry. If all goes well, we will start offering the downloadable version this fall (2012). Please watch this blog for further information for the launch of the downloadable version.
The DVDs also include audio bytes from those who disagree with women in ministry and we break down the arguments and compare the arguments to the Scriptures.
The 4 DVDs are broken up into scriptural passages as follows:
Introduction, Part 1: Genesis 1-3 The Designer Knows Best (Deals with the creation account) Part 2: Genesis 3 Who is to Blame? (Deals with the fall of man and the implications on God’s original creation) Total length 46 minutes
Part 3: 1 Corinthians 11 Head Coverings and Authority (Deals with the issue of “head”, authority and all the difficult part of 1 Corinthians 11 including the length of one’s hair, the phrase “because of the angels” and the spiritual meaning of the head covering during prayer and spiritual service) Total length 43 minutes
Part 4: 1 Timothy 2 Women, Deception and the first Created (deals with Paul’s prohibition, the reasons given by Paul for his restriction and the expected outcome from 1 Timothy 2:15 that sums up Paul’s complete argument.) Total length 58 minutes broken up into 2 parts of approx 30 min each
Part 5: 1 Corinthians 14, The Elusive Law (deals with the “law” that is appealed to in 1 Corinthians 14 and the connection with this restrictive “law” to the context of Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.) Part 6: 1 Timothy 3 Follow the Leader (This part deals with the issue of trustworthy servants of God and their qualifications); Part 7: Galatians 3:28 Equal to Serve (this part deals with Galatians 3 & 4 where Paul lays down his argument on equality and full sonship.) The DVD concludes with an appeal to the church to allow women to minister in the gifts that the Holy Spirit has given them.
For those who have seen the DVDs and would like to recommend them to others or if you would like to comment about the impact the DVDs had on you or others you know, please feel free to comment.
