Is anyone familiar with the reverend Johnnie Coleman? What do you think of her?

She preached in a New Thought Christian church. So the focus is on the teaching of Christ, rather than traditional church dogma. Which appeals to more freethinking types.

Here is a great short message about Corinthians.

I found Science of Mind in the early 80's and Johnnie Coleman travelled to SOM centers in the U.S. She came to L.A and I enjoy her teachings.

SOM has made the most sense to me as far as religion is concerned.

My last "church" was City of Angels and the minister was O.C. Smith and I loved his services. He died very unexpectedly, he is loved.

What I like is her understanding of the Bible. I really want to hear more.

I haven't heard O.C. Smith but I will keep his name in mind.

If she calls herself a reverend, apparently she hasn't read the Bible. Not worth listening to.

Can you be specific? What did she say that you disagreed with?

Just one thing. I'll wait (while you try to listen and find something.)

1 Timothy chapters 2 and 3. If she actually believes what the Bible teaches, she would not be doing what the Bible forbids. And we'd do well not to listen to people that don't believe and follow the Bible.

Can you please be specific?

Otherwise I'm going to assume you got that from an evangelical pamphlet about New Thought Christianity.

BF doesn't believe that women can be pastors. Just ignore him like most of us.

Interesting. Now that you mention it, I really can't think of a single female preacher in the evangelical mode. There are a lot of female preachers but they are usually in the more charismatic and word of faith style churches.

In other words, if you are female then you have no business preaching at all from that perspective. Someone who believes that therefore wouldn't even have to listen to anything she said, because anything she might say is already invalid due to her gender. (Let's not even think about her racial heritage.) "Women must remain silent" is one verse I remember from the New Testament. But I'm pretty certain that it was not written by the same individual who wrote Paul's authenticated letters.
