There is a dismaying discordant dissonance to President Ted Wilson’s presentation.
We are all "blown away " by young Andressa Duarte’s prowess in preaching and her eager energy in evangelism. Where does she find time for her schoolwork?
The dismaying, despicable, disastrous, undeniable deal, is that even if Andressa eventually earns a Doctorate in Divinity, under Wilson’s dispensation she will ETERNALLY be marooned at the lowest level of ministry.
"Many quotations from various books by Ellen White followed"
Elder Wilson, the dominant disciple of the Headship Dogma is also an ardent, addicted, aficionado of EGW, endowing her every pronouncement with ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY.
By cravenly conceding to her every utterance, he is in direct denial of the Pauline edict that NO woman should have authority over a man— in this case himself!
In a damaging, divergent, discrepancy, he dispassionately denounces all other Adventist women using the same texts he ignores when deifying EGW.
We exult with Wilson in the birth of his granddaughter Hannah, but regret that by his insights, she will always be a second class citizen, never the full equal of her male siblings and cousins! Wilson’s female relatives put on “a brave face” when the family patriarch discounts their validity with his damaging, depressing chauvinism.
TOTAL MEMBER INVOLVEMENT is laudable when our mission is to evangelize the planet, however Paul is explicit and emphatic when he denies practical participation to half our membership. How can women possible evangelize when they are ordered to “be silent”?
A DISPARITY OF DISCORDANT DISSONANCE INDEED!
