Women Priests

Women priests in the Roman Catholic Church were in the news over the weekend. In both an LA Times article and also on The Today Show they were featured. Once again we see people who deviate from the Word of God. And when someone is willing to ignore the Bible in one area, they are sure to follow in other areas. The ordination of these women has been mostly done in secret, because it is not allowed by the Roman Catholic Church. The first lady on The Today Show is a prosecutor during the week. She admits to upholding the law during the week and to breaking the law of the Roman Catholic church on the weekends because it is unjust. The problem here is that she is breaking the Word of God that says the overseer is to be the husband of one wife. It does not say the spouse of one spouse. So obviously she has a higher regard for the law of the land, than she does the Word of God. She goes on to say that she tried to change the church for the 30 years. This is always the next step for those who don’t like something the Bible says, try to change what the Bible says. She says she lived a holy life for 30 years, never missing a mass, and being part of all the church events. This a plea for her works righteousness, she followed the law but it wasn’t working for her. She then says the church has already changed and the Vatican is just behind. I don’t know whether that is true or not, but it is irrelevant regardless. Just because a group of people believe something it doesn’t make it true.

One lady is shown providing over the Lord’s Supper. She states during this “this is the Lamb of God who comes to take away the brokenness of this world”. That statement is heresy. Jesus came to take our sins upon Himself not to fix the brokenness of this world. It then goes on to talk about how they use both male and female imagery. Then follows with the Lord’s Prayer saying Our father and mother who art in heaven. False teaching leads to false teaching leads to heresy. We don’t change the Bible to fit what we want to do.

The last lady says that the Roman Catholic church teaches to follow tradition and conscience. And her conscience tells her she is doing right. This is the problem with following anything but the Bible. Our hearts and minds will lead us astray. And we are soon following our own wants and desires. The Bible is sufficient to guide us. Sola Scriptura.
