Did Elisabeth Elliot Pave the Way For Female Preachers?

Did Elisabeth Elliot Pave the Way For Female Preachers?

A few weeks ago, I was watching Elisabeth Elliot teach a group of people on some topic that I don’t remember. I think it was about being a godly woman. In the class, I noticed there were men and women. When her talk was done, she said her next teaching will be to men on how to be real men. It reminded me of her speaking to men and women in our chapel service at Westmont College many years ago….

She Felt Called to Preach to Men

She Felt Called to Preach to Men

On a video put together by John Henry called “Voddie Baucham Provides Answers about Women Pastors, Teachers, and Elders in the Church,” John goes back and forth between an interview with Joyce Meyer and a sermon being preached by Voddie Baucham to show the fallacy that women make to justify preaching. (I summarized the video.) A woman who works for Joyce asked her: “When you began your ministry in 1976, what God expected of women was very different from what…

Women’s Ministries as Pestilence

Women’s Ministries as Pestilence

Written By Doug Wilson When it comes to sexual role relationships in the church today, we are so far gone that if we all got back to the status of “severely compromised,” more than a few people would call it a great reformation. One of our issues is the result of our gradual dismissal of biblically-assigned roles for men and women. We have done the same with creational roles, along with traditional roles, saying that they are all simply “outdated…

Female Rebellion Within the Church

Female Rebellion Within the Church

So, women are leaving the churches because men aren’t leading in “Christ-like ways.” How are they not leading in Christ-like ways? They believe in male leadership in the home and the church, and wives are to submit to their husbands, plus women aren’t allowed to teach in the churches or have authority over men but to be in silence. This angers the women, so they leave. “‘I cannot count the number of women who have reached out to me over…

Women are Great at Twisting Scripture

Women are Great at Twisting Scripture

Not one woman was called to be Jesus’ disciple. Not one woman wrote a book in the Bible. Not one woman is called to be an elder or deacon since they are to be “the husband of one wife.” All throughout Acts, it was men who preached. Not one woman in the entire Bible preached. Women are to “learn in silence with all subjection” in the church gatherings. If they have a question, they are to ask their husbands at…

Does Female Rebellion Weaken Men?

Does Female Rebellion Weaken Men?

Most of you heard about the fiasco between John MacArthur and Beth Moore. He told her to “Go home” which is biblical and I applauded him for doing so. However, many Christians were outraged over it. This past Sunday, he preached a sermon in response called Does the Bible Permit a Woman to Preach? I encourage you ALL to listen to it. It is fantastic! Here are a few of my favorite remarks of his: Women are collectively moving to…

“Preach the Word”…Wait, Women are Called to Preach?

“Preach the Word”…Wait, Women are Called to Preach?

There’s a video out by John Bevere, Lisa Bevere’s husband, where he is defending women preachers (his wife is a preacher) and he uses this verse: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (2 Timothy 4:2). What do the commentaries of old have to say about preaching the Word back in the days when everyone knew that women weren’t called to preach? Is this a command for women, too?…

Gender Has Little to Do With Someone’s Capacity to Lead?

Gender Has Little to Do With Someone’s Capacity to Lead?

Lisa Bevere wrote this on her Instagram recently: “GENDER is NOT the PROBLEM in LEADERSHIP; our challenge is a posture of PRIDE and a tendency toward PREJUDICE and judging others. These will BLIND SOMEONE who is otherwise a good leader. HUMILITY, EXPERIENCE, FAITHFULNESS, EDUCATION, and VIRTUE are just SOME of the qualities that QUALIFY LEADERS, but gender alone does not a leader make. Gender alone doesn’t QUALIFY a leader, so gender alone can’t DISQUALIFY one.” Then she further clarified it…

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…
