Should women be allowed to preach in churches?

Users who viewed this discussion (Total:0)

I recently saw this video on YouTube from Lauri Alexander who makes the argument that women were never called to preach.
I personally believe that a woman should be allowed to preach, if she has received that calling.
What does the forum believe?

The original Greek text says: we all are to “Proclaim” the Gospel....ff. Sense then, man has change original words to translations to have a slight curve in meanings with new definition to produce a newer thought pattern. “Like Preach” is a slight difference than”Proclaim”.!

Would you say, a woman who just got saved, does not have the right to “Proclaim” the good news of what has happen to her and by what means? Just a slip of the “amanuensis” hand can give a new mean or thought pattern of a word. “Now how about that thought pattern”.

I know what Jesus told all of us to do, “Proclaim” the gospel everywhere we go, be a witness about Him and the saving work He has done unto the “Proclaimer”, In the streets, in the village, on the job, in the stores, on vacations, everywhere your soles of your feet travel. He never told nobody to get up on a soap box and Preach. “RCC” started that! I have nothing to say about soap box preaching. That’s is the”Institutionalize church” child. Their child their rules.

So I’m curious about your thoughts on women, such as Joyce Meyers, who lead churches.
Also, why don’t you believe a woman should be able to pastor a church?

Women can preach, teach and have a ministry.

Acts 9:36; Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated in Greek is called Dorcas); this woman was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did.

Teaching children, other women and doing music, and service ministry is no problem.
Being the head of a church is.

1 Tim 2:11; A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.
1 Tim 2:12; But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.

1 Cor 14:34; The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says.
1 Cor 14:35; If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church.

1 Tim 3:2; An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

Joyce Meyer has other issues as well. Multiple multi-million dollar mansions, multiple private jets.
The world is full of rebellious women who want to be "large and in charge".

(Yes there are corrupt men also).

Qualifications for Overseers
1Ti 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1Ti 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
1Ti 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
1Ti 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
1Ti 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Qualifications for Deacons
1Ti 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
1Ti 3:9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
1Ti 3:10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
1Ti 3:11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
1Ti 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
1Ti 3:13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
1Ti_2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

it 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
Tit 2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
Tit 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
Tit 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
Tit 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

IMO the above passages speaks loud and clear. I fully understand many today disagree with my thoughts which is perfectly fine.
Joyce Meyers is WOF which doesn't set well with my understanding of Scripture .

I loved the Assemblies of God Sunday School i had as a kid again, my opinion, so many of the WofF guys came from AoG and pushed it into New Age etc. Dad was a Assemblies of God pastor for about 50 years

Women Can have great ministries with other women. And teaching children. Why can't we be content with what we Can do.

We need to pay more attention to God's guidelines.

There's difference between sharing the Gospel unto salvation with people where ever / when ever an opportunity presents itself. It's quite another to be behind a pulput preaching to a mixed group of adults / children.
