If Wilson is on the side of truth, he must stand his ground even though the 99% start throwing rocks. And let those who are scheming such things search their own hearts with repentance in mind.
Clearly there was more than meets the eye on this occasion. I believe somebody deliberately engineered this awkward situation. I am impressed by the way Elder Wilson handled things. I am an African living in the UK and the leadership here has successfully managed to convince the majority that people who are opposed to women ordination are Africans who are holding on to their cultural practices of oppressing women. What I find most annoying with this insinuation is that it is based on the notion that Africans cannot have a theological position that is scriptural - they are only influenced by their culture! How patronising!By the way there are many Godly women out there who are working for the Lord. One does NOT need to be a pastor or elder to work for the Lord. In fact, there are many MEN who have never been ordained as elders or pastors (I am one of them) but yet still continue to work for the Lord.As Carl put it, the truth doesn't need the majority on its side in order to remain true - the Truth IS the majority. "And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." (2nd Kings 6:17). Read 'Ted Wilson' for 'Elisha' here.
