From Elmbrook Church’s “History” page:
In August 2017 a historic congregational vote was passed, amending the church constitution to allow full leadership status to women as elders and at every level of church leadership — consistent with and underscoring Elmbrook’s long-held esteem of women pastors, preachers, teachers and leaders of the church.
The true legacy of Jill and Stuart Briscoe is rebellion against the God they claim to serve. God created Adam first, then Eve. And if we had any question the meaning of God’s order of creation for the age of the New Covenant and the Church of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit inspired the Apostle Paul to make it perfectly clear, writing in Sacred Scripture:
But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. (1 Timothy 2:12-14)
Have we no fear of God?
Is anyone pointing or calling out the Briscoes and their home church for their rebellion against God? Anyone at all?
Is anyone warning those looking to Elmbrook and her false shepherds for the care of their souls and the souls of their loved ones?
Or is rebellion against God’s commands concerning our sexuality insufficient to prove a pastor and his wife are wolves? Sexual rebellion doesn’t destroy souls? It just leaves Christians a little less blessed? Was the Apostle Paul stupid to warn and command and silence these very errors and those committing and leading others into them?
Just as I warned publicly in the presence of the Briscoes at Moody Bible Institute a decade ago, Jill and Stuart circle the globe promoting feminism. It is their Gospel. People there that day got very angry that I said so.
This stuff is godless and we all take it in stride.
Pastors and elders and deacons and Titus 2 women, what high places are you tearing down? Does anyone hate you as they hated your Master? Holy Week is a good time to ask this question.
