Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home

Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home

July 7th, 2008 5 comments

(from Rev. Mark Hein) When I was first approached to write a column for this website, I was more than just a little hesitant. With a busy ministry, I wasn’t sure if anything more would fit on my plate. That is, until I was told the topic that was being considered.   To say that there is great confusion over spiritual headship, be it in the church or home, would be an incredible understatement. There is both confusion about it as well as an all-too obvious absence of it. True spiritual headship, biblical headship, is rarely seen anymore. What this   More…

Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home, Article #2

August 3rd, 2008 5 comments

“Jesus is Lord” Our Lord said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:19) What part of that do we not understand? In regard to the whole topic at hand, when it comes to “headship,” be it in the church and home, that about covers it all, wouldn’t you say? Headship belongs to Christ. In his letter to the church at Ephesus, St. Paul talks about how God the Father raised Christ from the dead “and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power   More…

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home“) Did you know that there are really two “sanctuaries” available to every Christian man, woman, teenager and child? Places to go where they can find rest from a wearisome world? Places where servants of the Lord – faithful men and women – will find peace, strength, solace and comfort? It is true. There are two… or… at least… there should be two!

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home“) Before beginning this latest installment in our series on spiritual headship, I want to apologize for how long it has been since my last post. Without getting into details, I have had a number of health related “challenges.” Thanks be to God that I am doing much better and I rejoice in the opportunity to move forward with this series. The topic and issue at hand could not be more important or timely. In fact, you may want to reread the previous articles as   More…

“In Word and Deed”, #5 in Spiritual Headship by Pr. Mark H. Hein

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home” Pastor Hein’s articles on BJS can be found here.) “Do as I say, not as I do” is not an expression that you hear all that often, but it is one that is lived out and applied in so many ways and in so many households. The reason you do not hear people say this is because the hypocritical overtone is so obvious. Doing and saying should be congruent. What we do is also what we should say and vice versa.

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home” Pastor Hein’s articles on BJS can be found here.) This article on spiritual headship is geared to all of our dear sisters in Christ. Hi! Some of you have had the joy of seeing and experiencing true spiritual headship at work in the home. It may be a father, a husband or another brother in Christ who has provided the same, exhibited the same… sharing Christ with you and your household, leading you in the way of the Lord, ardently protecting you from the   More…

“Turning to the Church”, #7 in Spiritual Headship by Pr. Mark H. Hein

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home” Pastor Hein’s articles on BJS can be found here.) After six installments dealing with spiritual headship in the home, we now turn to the subject of the same in the church. And in a very fitting way this brings us full circle, back to the first two articles in this series and especially Article # 2 entitled “Jesus is Lord.” These three words certainly sum up spiritual headship in the church. At this point, I could just say “Amen” and end it here. Jesus   More…

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home” Pastor Hein’s articles on BJS can be found here.) In the previous section of our discussion on Spiritual Headship in the Church, I started talking about the key role that pastors play in leading the Body of Christ – God’s precious people here on earth – in the paths of righteousness. As has been stated many times before, there is one head of the Church. It is Jesus Christ. And out of love for His people, our Lord has given “headship” positions to men,   More…

(This is the next post in our regular column “Spiritual Headship in the Church and Home” Pastor Hein’s articles on BJS can be found here.) With this installment, our series on “Spiritual Headship in the Church” comes to a close. The series ends, but the topic must continue to be reviewed and discussed. It is that important. But of far greater importance is not talking, but doing. It is not words, but actions. Spiritual headship… true spiritual headship as established by the Lord our God and defined by His Word… must continue to be practiced in our homes and in   More…
