Googling “Female Preachers”

Googling “Female Preachers”

The other day, I decided to google “female preachers” and see what came up.

This is the first one that came up.

Many will claim that Priscilla was a preacher or teacher in a church. Can they support this with Scripture? No. They wrote, “She is often thought…” There’s no Bible verse that supports this. This is what is told about Priscilla:

“The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.” (1 Corinthians 16:19)

“Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 16:3)

“And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.” (Acts 18:26)

There’s NOTHING about her being a preacher or teacher in a church.

Do you notice the words “some have interpreted to mean…”? Instead of taking God’s Word as written which explains she was a servant and succorer (helper) in the church, they twist it to mean she was a preacher in the church. “I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.” (Romans 16:1,2)

This one got it right! What is women’s role in the churches? It is to “learn in quietness and full submission” or as the KJV reads, “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.”

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 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 also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
1 Corinthians 14:33:35
