I was told we don’t want conflict at church. And I do understand. I do understand why, when we come to the hour of worship, we ...read more

     | 1,510 views

    The Bible sees no contradiction between the equality of men and women before God, and the distinction in roles in marriage.

    Last Sunday, I spoke on the issue of male headship in the home.

The business world, it has to be said, with an eye on the cash till, seizes upon the ...read more
