Great Sermon! We greatly appreciate Pastor Silversides's faithful preaching on this controversial topic!
re 'Preaching with Integrity' Only thing worse than contemporary pagan feminism is infernal, emasculating pagan patriarchy that came in with Rome, clung to Calvin, and has spawned feminism by it's gross worldliness and sinfulness!
Paul was right when he said grievous wolves would enter the church not sparing the flock and they hit on the most tender vessels that few have cared to defend since....women.
Don't you get it that the patriarchal culture that extends over all the globe is the REAL "contemporary worldly culture" that currently smothers the church? The wolves are running the church.
Preaching with Integrity Nothing so undermines our relationship to God's Word as avoiding those issues that confront contemporary culture. For many years, I have been saddened by the willingness of many otherwise good commentators to abandon sound hermeneutics when dealing with I Cor.11:2-16, adopting instead the policy of liberalism, and consigning the whole thing to the waste-basket of ancient cultural norms that have no present relevance. These men, by their lack of courage, have torn down the defense designed to keep God's order in the Church, and have instead laid out the welcome mat to pagan feminism.
Brother Silversides gives us a fine, orthodox exposition, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart, because the ramifications of dealing honestly with this passage are very wide indeed.
I encourage you to download the file and share it widely.

Great Sermon! A wonderfully clear, no-nonsense exposition of this much disputed passage of Scripture. Headcovering in congregational worship is here shown to be a permanent ordinance relating to the creation order and male headship. Let him that runs read it!
