Tax Day! Go Inside the Ministers’ Tax Seminar

Tax Day!

Let’s face it, taxes can be pretty confusing especially if you’re doing them for Ministers or their church. That’s why we offer the Ministers’ Tax Seminar every year. So you can get your questions answered!

We decided to go inside this year’s Ministers’ Tax Seminar with Tom Stolle, our Chief Financial Officer, and Shannon Beal, Branch Manager Assistant for Smith and Barney. Listen closely to find out why you should plan on attending the seminar next year.

Candi FinchSusan,I am glad that you commented besacue you bring up some other good examples that need to be considered ones that I wasn t ignoring but just wasn t able to address in the limited context of a quick blog. You know that we could spend days going back and forth on biblical examples there is so much to study and consider on this issue.On your first point about Paul just giving his advice besacue all Scripture is God-inspired, I believe that God inspired Paul to write his letter to Timothy so we cannot just dismiss it as Paul giving his advice for a particular situation that may or may not apply to us today.On John 4, I agree that Jesus dealings with the Samaritan women were very countercultural you can tell this by his own disciples reactions to this event. However, we must be careful not to overstate the text. Nowhere does it say that Jesus sent the woman to teach the men of her city. The women left when the disciples arrived and testified to her encounter. The Bible provides us with her testimony in John 4:29. Women are not prohibited from sharing their faith or evangelizing or giving testimony as we see in John 4 or even in the case of the women who testified to his resurrection. In the case of Priscilla and her husband Aquilla teaching Apollos, I see no contradiction here besacue they taught him privately. It was not in the public church setting. I have many theological discussions with guys, and I do not see this in violation with Scripture. What Scripture prohibits is the public teaching and exercising of authority of a woman over men in the gathered church. For that matter while women cannot teach men in the church, they are allowed to pray or prophesy in the gathered church (see 1 Cor 11). I believe the Bible makes a distinction between praying, prophesying, witnessing/ testifying, and teaching.Now, I know that the church has been guilty in the past of prohibiting things for women that are not prohibited in Scripture. Furthermore, my position on 1 Timothy 2 is not one I wanted to hold several years ago. However, I have been convinced through my study of the text that there are boundaries given for women despite my best efforts to believe otherwise

Jun28Pastor Rob It seems to me that other sins are not asking for actpceance but forgiveness. The other sins need repentance not social equality. The other sins don't start churches (Church of Divine Liars, etc). the other sins aren't claiming racial status, at least not yet but if this works for the homosexual it might work for them because after all aren't we all genetic sinners, see Psalm 51.
