Dwight Nelson: Of Perfume and Tears and Grumpy Old Men

It’s time for some more Pioneer Memorial truth. . .on women’s ordination. It’s getting pretty clear that the anti-diversity crowd in Adventism continues to lose theological and homiletical ground. 

This sermon, part 2 of Dr. Nelson’s The Last Days series called “Of Perfume and Tears and Grumpy Old Men,” was delivered at Pioneer Memorial Church on January 21, 2012. It is drawn from John 12:1-8. “Let her alone. . .she has done a good work for Me.” And Acts of the Apostles 142:

Thus, without controversy, prejudice was broken down, the exclusiveness established by the custom of ages was abandoned, and the way was opened for the gospel to be proclaimed to the Gentiles.” (emphasis supplied)
