Women “Occasionally” Teaching Men

Women “Occasionally” Teaching Men

After my post about Nancy Wolgemuth watering down the topic of keepers at home, someone alerted me to the fact that she teaches men. I looked on Nancy’s site and 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 the headship of male spiritual authority. (The word translated have authority means ‘to…

The Jezebels Among Us

The Jezebels Among Us

There are many women preachers/teachers/authors out there these days who have “special revelations” from God. God spoke to them, they claim, as if God’s Word isn’t enough for them. Many women love these women preachers, attend their conferences, and believe these Jezebels must be so godly because they “hear from God” even though most of the women in the audience never do, thus they feel inferior and less godly. These Jezebels falsely believe that the words they heard from God…

Satan Preys on the Vulnerability of Women

Satan Preys on the Vulnerability of Women

A woman wrote me this letter recently and I thought many of you would enjoy reading it. I do love receiving letters from wise women who read my blog because they give a different perspective. Interesting circumstance yesterday morning in doing some on-line research for my husband, I came across a blog posting on “Why Your Pastor Should Say ‘No More to Beth Moore.” With hundreds of comments listed, I began reading. Whew! Took a while. As I read, I realized anew why God…

Women Prophesying in the Church

Women Prophesying in the Church

Whenever I teach that women are commanded to not be preachers/teachers of the Word but to be silent in the churches as the Apostle Paul has taught, invariably I have women tell me that women can prophesy in the church because of 1 Corinthians 11:5. “But every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.” Years ago, I listened to Michael Pearl teach 1 Corinthians and he taught…

Should Women Teach the Bible in Public?

Should Women Teach the Bible in Public?

As many of you know, I have become convicted about teaching the Bible (theology) to women. I love learning from God’s Word and want to know the truth of it above all. I teach all of the biblical principles of godly womanhood which includes a lot of Bible verses but I don’t claim to be a theologian, pastor, elder, or deacon since God has made it clear in His Word that men are to be the preacher/teachers of the Word….

Discerning Error and Truth

Discerning Error and Truth

There are famous women preachers/teachers that other women love to share these preachers’ words excitedly and pronounce them good and inspiring. I look at these women’s words and read them over and over again trying to make sense of them. They may sound good but they aren’t biblical. They make up words that aren’t in the Bible and point women to ways that aren’t of God. They “hear” from God, write it down on paper, and act if these words…

My Favorite Church Service With the Pearls

My Favorite Church Service With the Pearls

Years ago, right after Debi Pearl’s book Created to Be His Help Meet was published in 2004, we went to a week-long retreat of theirs where Michael was going to preach to us the meat of the Word – the book of Hebrews. I asked if Ken would go with me the first night and he did because he liked what Debi’s book was doing for our marriage and for me. When we got there, we saw Mike right away and…

My Addition to the IF:Gathering

My Addition to the IF:Gathering

On Saturday morning, I spent four or five hours in my office above listening to the IF:Gathering where hundreds of thousands of women were listening in. In between times, I went on a walk with my husband and had breakfast with my parents, mentored a few women, and later babysat my precious grandchildren. I noticed that the majority of the main speakers were mostly younger women preachers who have children at home. Their stated purpose: “We exist to gather, equip and unleash…

Why Don’t Women’s Bible Studies Teach Godly Submission?

Why Don’t Women’s Bible Studies Teach Godly Submission?

The discussion about women teaching the Word is a hot topic in today’s lukewarm culture but I never want to make rules that are not in the Word. If older women are to only teach other women what is in Titus 2:4, 5, they would absolutely have to teach some of the Bible. I have to use Bible verses to teach what good, modest, chaste, and sober are according the the Word. I teach them what a meek and quiet spirit….

Reasons Women Should Be Able to Preach

Reasons Women Should Be Able to Preach

Premier Christianity from the UK wrote a post arguing why women should be able to preach and teach men in the church. “God created us male and female. By not including women equally with men, Christian events are depriving the body of Christ of the fullness God created us with.” Men and women are equal in the eyes of the Lord but they are not the same no matter how much feminism tries to convince us. The author is fighting…
