This is exactly what a competent, caring, strong, and sensitive Pastor and leader does.
Pastor Jackson is a good man, a humane soul, a good leader, not a discriminator of women.
“The disaster, the real disaster, believe me” ( ) is that the NAD has an inconvenient interference of the GC, that is now in the hands of an intransigent, ultraconservative, LGTarian, and purely Whiteist President. Donald Trump would say, again, “This is a disaster, a disaster, believe me, believe me!” …
No doubt about it Andreas! It’s been clear, since the beginning of this ridiculous process (TOSC, the in-famous question voted in SA, the “grave consequences” threat, etc) that the real issue is nothing but a fight for maintaining the POWER & CONTROL in the hands of males in the Church. Men who certainly could benefit from a good psychotherapist to address their needs to subjugate and control women. All done in name of God, but actually executed by men who think their are the “gods” in charge of the Church. People who use the tool of “discrimination” to enforce their ill thinking and needs.
Apparently you are not well acquainted with the real and common politics that are practiced in Church by individuals that manipulate the system so smoothly and smartly that many members end up believing that the people from the world Church are actually responsible for the absurdities that happen at the GC level. Keep in mind that well informed people, if they are sane, would never support such manipulation and malicious control on the part the “religious” leaders on the top, “the guys upstairs in black suits.”
Elmer, I think the sentence should read, “…No one but me wants to split this church.” Because so far this is exactly what Ted Wilson has been doing! So, does he now want us all to blind ourselves and just forget about everything he has done so far to perpetuate discrimination of women in our Church?
Hmmm, this definitely rings a bell!
What about the LGTarians getting into power democratically only to circumvent or dismantle the part of the Church that opposes the heresy of perfectionism - which is now invading the church disguised as LGT, a very elusive and deceiving scheme? Unlike many former GC Presidents, Ted Wilson NEVER denounced the infiltration of this heresy. On the contrary, the GC supports some independent satellite SDAs ministries with funds, I am not sure if tithes, or not. But the money goes to ministries that preach LGT vigorously, and fight in favor of discrimination of women.
Psychologists and other mental health professionals know that there is no such thing as “superiority complex.” Any appearance of its resemblance clearly reveals that an “inferiority-complex” is the problem. This is why I say that those discriminators should all go to some competent psychotherapist. @elmer_cupino and I can send them some business cards…
I bet she would be asking, “You gave me a certificate of ordination, so why can’t you give it to other women? What is wrong with you males???”
Bingo!!! Someone dropped the ball when they created the original 50-page document. But then, suddenly they changed it quickly and came with that beautiful statement (bs) to be voted, offering “grace” to the Unions. Why?
Well, if they made the Unions into MISSIONS, they realized that missions never send money to anybody… Just imagine the PUC, CUC, etc becoming Missions… That would be the obituary of the GC - unless they moved their headquarters to Africa.
Therefor, quid pro quo, “grace” pro money!" DEAL!!! (For one year…, right…!)
I think this question may actually be embarrassing to him. However, there is certainly a reason why you, Dr. Kubo, are addressing the issue…

This is about usurping the authority of Gods structure for the church and the home this is not about a womans (sic) abililty (sic) or skill to hold a position but about obedience
I am always appalled when I see people saying whatever it takes to perpetuate discrimination of women in our Church. Amazing fact!..
