One Man's Opinion

Are we so hard up for help as men that we now need women folk to write articles for preachers, and lessons for us to read and ponder?

I have read Pulpit Helps for years. A great paper. But why is it that we now have to have six articles in one issue written by the women?

- Front page-Portrait of a Godly Shepherd-by Nancy DeMoss
- Front Page-The Discipline of a Fixed Focus-by Angela Ramage
- Page 8-Protect Your Marriage-by Glenda Malmin
- Page 9, 10-Little White Lies-by Jan Silvious
- Page 12-Historical Criticism-by Etta Linnemann
- Page 18-Office Tips for the Church Secretary-by Glenda Friesen

I, for one, believe that we need all the help we can get as teachers and preachers of the Word of God, but I do not believe for a minute that we need to have the women folk write those articles.

Another Opinion

I wish to ask Mr. Lentz if there are any complaints with the biblical content of any of the afore mentioned articles? As the editorial assistant to Pulpit Helps that typesets every article in the publication, who also just happens to be a woman, I found nothing biblically wrong with any of the articles mentioned.

And as a believer in God's kingdom, who just happens to be a woman, I use this verse to defend my fellow believers in Christ, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Gal. 3:28).

Likes Pulpit Helps on Internet

I have been on the internet since the old BBS days and I have to say I like the entire package that you have put together! Bold, well organized and lacking the "bells & whistles" that bog down most sites!

I have enjoyed Pulpit Helps for years and am excited that I can now find those "nuggets" in a form that I can just drag and drop into sermons, bulletins, etc. Keep up the good work.

Abortion: Right or Wrong?

Is abortion right or wrong? Jeremiah 1:5 states, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." Before we contemplate abortion, it would be well to consider the words to Jeremiah the prophet. In doing this, I am sure that we will reconsider abortion. Why? Because we know not whom we are aborting. Let us note, abortion is a child and not a choice and abortion cannot be politically right when it is morally wrong.
