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…

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…
