"If the woman is under subjection, she is, consequently, prohibited from authority to teach in public. And unquestionably, whenever even natural propriety has been maintained, women have in all ages been excluded from the public management of affairs. It is the dictate of common sense, that female government is improper and unseemly.” -- John Calvin, Commentary on 1 Corinthians 14:34

WHO ARE THE REAL JEW-HATERS? Do you know which Christians really hate the Jews most? It is not those who expose the wickedness of the Jews and revile them for it. It is those Christians who most profess to love them. It is those who are the most tolerant and amicable toward the Jews though they stubbornly persist in a God-hating state. And it is those who tell you that they long for the day when the Jews turn to Christ but who also never speak against their present evil. Because if such so-called Christians did love them, then they would tell the Jews the truth that they need to hear. They would confront the Jews with the facts about all their crimes against humanity and God, tell them plainly about the judgment and eternal punishment that is going to come upon them, and make them know that they must submit to Christ or suffer the dreadful consequences. If indeed the Jews are ever going to be saved en masse at some point in time, as many of the so-called Reformed Christians profess to believe, this is the only way that it can happen. The Jews are not going to wake up one Sunday morning and, all of a sudden, mysteriously find in themselves an urge to praise Christ. No, if they are to be converted at all, it must be through the preaching of the truth, and that must include the unpleasant truth about themselves, if they are to be brought to repentance. But instead such so-called Christians, out of cowardice, fear, or apathy, either remain silent about the Christ-hating Jews or treat them as friends. In so doing, they reveal that they are lovers of neither Christians nor Jews but only lovers of themselves. If they did love their fellow Christians, then they would seek out the truth about the Jewish threat, and both educate themselves and warn others. And if they did love the Jews, then they would present the unpleasant truth to them and call them to repentance. But this they never do. They can easily believe that conversion of the Jews is in the far-off future, but never in their own future, because that would necessitate that they actually begin to do something now to help accomplish it. But such men do what they do out of self-interest only. They know that there is a cost to exposing Jewish wrongdoing and they are not willing to pay that cost. And so when you hear a professing Christian say that he longs for the day when the Jews come to Christ, but you know that he never speaks out against their wickedness or calls them to repentance, then you know that he is someone who is not doing his duty toward the Jews and to God, but is merely hoping that some other men will rise up in the future to do what he is unwilling to do in the present. In other words, you are listening to a hypocrite.
