Gereformeerde bronne vir Ampsdraers

skape

Een van die grootste redes vir die opkoms van die feministiese en gevolglik VIDA agenda, was en is ons mans wat nie hul roeping tot liefdevolle diensbare leierskap omhels en najaag nie.  Soos een predikant dit gestel het: die krisis van die VIDA agenda is as gevolg van die krisis in die huidige manlike ampsdraers.

Godsvresende en geroepe mans moet dus opnuut opgeroep en toegerus word om ampsdraers tot eer van God en heil van die gemeentes te wees.

Sien die volgende webblad vir bronne oor toerusting vir ouderlinge, diakens en predikante:

PRCA Sources: help for Officebearers

Hier is ‘n paar artikels wat reeds in Afrikaans vertaal is, met erkenning aan die CPRF webblad:

Kerklike Ampte (Church Offices)

As daar nog persone is wat kan help om hierdie en ander artikels te vertaal in Afrikaans, kan julle my kontak, dit sal baie waardeer word: proregno@gmail.com

U kan ook op die Enigste Troos webblad ‘n groot verskeidenheid bronne kry.

As iemand enige ander aanlyn bronne oor hierdie onderwerp in Afrikaans of Engels kan aanbeveel, stuur asb vir my daardie webblad addresse sodat ek dit hier kan byvoeg. Dankie.

Met erkenning aan die PRCA webblad plaas ek die inligting ook direk hier:

  1. Hallo Slabbert,

    Ek het no so vinnig die gedeelte wat jy in Afrikaans vertaal het gelees. Vraag aan jou: Het die Here ooit na die sondeval ‘n vloek oor beide Adam en Eva uitgespreek?

    Soos ek daardie gedeelte in Genesis lees het Hy die slang vervloek en die aarde vervloek agv Adam se ongehoorsaamheid, maar nie Adam of Eva op dieselfde manier vervloek nie. Hy het wel die gevolge van (straf op) hul ongehoorsaamheid aan hulle verduidelik maar ek dink nie mens kan dit as ‘n vloek sien nie.

    Groete

    Johan

    • Johan, na watter artikel spesifiek verwys jy ? Ek het nie die artikels vertaal nie, jy sal op die webblad waar die artikels is moet kyk wie die skrywer/vertaler is.
