Can Women Preach Under Elder Authority?

Can Women Preach Under Elder Authority?

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth is a respected Bible teacher among many. She teaches about biblical womanhood but she also teaches other parts of the Bible. In looking at her site to find what she believes about women preaching in church gatherings and to men, this is what I found: “At the same time, Nancy does not believe that occasional teaching by women in mixed audiences is inappropriate, as long as two things are clear. First, that it is taking place under…

There is NO Way For Women to Instruct the Gathered Church

There is NO Way For Women to Instruct the Gathered Church

“The women e-mailing me regularly are not worried about winning the pulpit. They’re still facing opposition over teaching the Bible to other women. They are fighting to be seen as necessary beyond children’s ministry and women’s ministry. They are fighting to contribute more than hospitality or a soft voice on the praise team. They are looking for leadership trajectories for women in the local church and finding virtually nothing. They watch their brothers receive advocacy and wonder who will invite…

These Women in the Bible Were NOT Preachers in the Churches

These Women in the Bible Were NOT Preachers in the Churches

Without fail, whenever I teach that women are not to be preachers/teachers of the Word of God, women will bring up a laundry list of women who were supposedly preachers/teachers in the churches. They ignore the clear commands that women are not to teach nor be in authority over men but to be silent in the churches. Instead, they search the Scriptures to try and negate God’s commands on this issue. Here is one such comment I received on my…

Flat Out Lie!

Flat Out Lie!

This meme was posted on Facebook and it’s a flat out lie yet many women believe it to be so! They wouldn’t be listening to all of the female preachers if they believed it to be a lie. Every single female preacher that I have heard try to justify why she can preach and teach the Word of God uses this excuse, “It was women who went and preached to the disciples that Jesus had risen from the dead!” The…

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…

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…

Few Women Bible Teachers Teach Biblical Womanhood

Few Women Bible Teachers Teach Biblical Womanhood

There are many female Bible teachers and/or preachers these days and most of them do not teach biblical womanhood. I have a problem with this and I will try to clearly explain why. What are older women to be known for in the Bible? Teaching biblical doctrine to other women? Let’s see…concerning older widows, they should be known for these things: “Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she…

Snatching Ambiguity From Clarity

Snatching Ambiguity From Clarity

During the Judge Kavanaugh’s hearings, the Judge gave an interesting phrase “snatching ambiguity from clarity” as he discussed textualism, the theory that the interpretation of the law is based primarily on the ordinary meaning of the text when it was written. He was referencing those who want to find every reason why what the law actually says is not what it actually means. Unfortunately, it seems that we have the same issue in the Church today where too many people…

The Devil’s E.R.A. (Eve Rules Adam)

The Devil’s E.R.A. (Eve Rules Adam)

Written By The Bible Watchman “Not withstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication: and she repented not. Behold I will cast her into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds….

Never Fear Teaching Biblical Womanhood

Never Fear Teaching Biblical Womanhood

We don’t need more female Bible teachers. Most of them teach men which is a clear violation of God’s Word. We do need more older women who are not afraid to teach biblical womanhood since this is what most younger women need. God commissioned men (elders) to “labor in the word and doctrine” (1 Timothy 5:17). He never commissioned women to do this but to “learn in silence with all subjection” (1 Timothy 2:11). I can understand why God never…
