Five Times Paul Commands Women to Be Silent in the Churches!

Five Times Paul Commands Women to Be Silent in the Churches!

Does the Apostle Paul contradict himself concerning women speaking in the churches? “But every woman that prays or prophesies with her hear uncovered dishonors her head” (1 Corinthians 11:5). Is he telling women that they can pray and prophesy openly and individually in the churches? What about these verses just a few chapters later? “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak,; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as…

How Can We Influence Culture For Good?

How Can We Influence Culture For Good?

There’s a ongoing debate among Christians on how we are to influence the culture for good. Are we to march in protest, speak out against all of the evils, petition congress, use our social media to combat the evil around us, preach politics from the pulpit, or what? I believe all of these things can be used for good but I don’t believe these are the way to have the greatest influence. The Church is called to be salt and…

Those Naughty Women in Corinth

Those Naughty Women in Corinth

It seems that many women falsely believe that the instructions given to women to be silent in the churches were written exclusively for the naughty women in Corinth because those women would shout out and cause disruption. “The words the Apostle Paul wrote aren’t relevant for today but were cultural instead,” they say. Let’s take a look at Scripture and see if they are correct. Who was Paul’s intended audience when he wrote 1 Corinthians? “Paul, called to be an…

Silly Women Laden With Sins

Silly Women Laden With Sins

  Women do NOT like being told that they are more easily deceived. Are we? We are told in 1 Timothy 2 why women shouldn’t teach nor usurp authority over the man but to be in silence. Two reasons are given. One was that Adam was first formed, therefore, this is the way God showed His authority structure on this earth from the beginning. Priests, Levites, Scribes, Major and Minor Prophets, Kings of Israel and Judah, Patriarchs, Authors of Scripture,…

If You Want to Be a Wise Woman, Seek Wisdom

If You Want to Be a Wise Woman, Seek Wisdom

Christian women have rebuked me for not backing up everything I teach by God’s Word, for my tone in writing, and for not writing about God’s grace more. “Certainly, your viral post about debt-free virgins wasn’t biblical at all. Where is God’s love, His grace, His forgiveness, and His mercy in this post,” they seemed to scream at me through the many articles written against me. I believe a lot of that post and all of my posts can be…

What About Back Alley Abortions if Abortion Becomes Illegal?

What About Back Alley Abortions if Abortion Becomes Illegal?

Going back to back alley abortions is almost always given when one speaks out against abortion and making it illegal. Yesterday, I shared a handwritten post on my Facebook page about making abortions illegal. If abortions are murder (which they are), then abortions should be illegal. As long as women falsely believe that abortions aren’t murder, they will continue to get them but if we call a spade a spade, then they would know exactly what they are doing (which…

The Strawman Argument For Abortion

The Strawman Argument For Abortion

Recently, I have been sharing things about abortion on my Facebook page. I have seen a reoccurring theme among those who are for abortion. When you say that abortion is murder and wrong, they will come right back at you with these questions: “Are you adopting children, especially all of the ones in foster care and those who are non-white and severely disabled? Are you willing to help pay for all of the single mothers to care for their children?”…

Our Souls are Vexed

Our Souls are Vexed

“For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds” (2 Peter 2:8). Lot’s soul was vexed from all of the evil that was happening around him in Sodom and Gomorrah. Our souls are vexed (tormented) from all of the evil happening around us. The leaders of New York clapped and celebrated that the lives of babies could be brutally murdered in their mother’s womb up until…

Pride, Gluttony, and Idleness Leads to the Destruction of Lives and Nations

Pride, Gluttony, and Idleness Leads to the Destruction of Lives and Nations

We have all heard that the sin of Sodom was sodomy which the 1828 Webster Dictionary simply defines as “a crime against nature.” What led up to this sin and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? “Behold this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me;…

Judge Deborah Supports Male Leadership

Judge Deborah Supports Male Leadership

In almost every post I write about God ordaining men to be those in authority, women will use the example of Deborah in the Old Testament. Here is a great response to this argument written by Scott LaPierre. Judges were Israel’s primary rulers for almost three-and-a-half centuries. They also commanded armies, making them some of Scripture’s strongest leaders. So why did Deborah serve as judge? Her position is often the first mentioned to support female leadership. Does she conflict with…
