No, Women, You Are Not Called to Preach!

-

From Beth Moore to Christine Caine, from Joyce Meyer to Priscilla Shirer — women, women everywhere, are standing up and drawing crowds to preach. The phenomenon, which is historically scarce throughout the entirety of Church history, is gaining a lot of traction. I’m going to argue that the primary reason that women are drawn to preaching is not actually a love for God’s word, but a hatred of it.

The Bible is clear that preaching and teaching in the church is a responsibility reserved for men.

I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

1 Timothy 2:12

Seriously, it doesn’t get any clearer than that. Still, some say that this verse is just saying that women can’t preach to men or teach men. No, Paul says he does not permit a woman to teach OR to exercise authority over a man. These are two separate clauses — neither are permitted.

But even if that weren’t the case, the vast majority of these lady preachers aren’t just preaching to women anyway. Women — like Beth Moore and Priscila Shirer — are mainstream preachers. Their audiences consist of as many men as women.

These lady-preachers, if you will, consistently argue that they are “called by God” to preach. One class that Beth Moore taught for years consisted of hundreds of people, including men, where it was argued,

God began to do a new thing, stirring the heart of Beth to move to a new meeting place, meeting time, change the name of the class, and allow men to attend.

Unsurprisingly, women who usurp the authority of male leadership — by preaching or teaching in the Church — are false teachers. Aside from the fact that they teach falsely on women preachers, many are wrapped up in prosperity theology, like Joyce Meyer and Christine Caine, claim extra-biblical revelations, like Beth Moore who said God gave her a vision of Him uniting Catholics and Protestants, romanticize their relationship with God, like Ann Voskamp who says she flew to Paris to “make love to God,” or promote various other heresies such as LGBT inclusiveness, like Jen Hatmaker. And even if you do — rarely — see a lady-preacher who seems solid, she’s still a false teacher on the premise that she’s not allowed to preach.

So why do women do this? Apart from the fact that a growing number of male leaders in the Church — like Matt Chandler, JD Greear, etc. — are becoming New Complementarians(e.g. egalitarians) and are too afraid of women to speak up, more than that, it’s because these women hate their God-given role as submissive servants in the Church.

As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. 3If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.

1 Corinthians 14:33-35

You will never hear Beth Moore preach on that verse. You will never hear Christine Caine preach on that verse. You will never hear Priscilla Shirer preach on that verse.

Why? Because they hate it. They are in rebellion against God and hate what God has designed them to do. Women are not called to preach. But the new feminist movement has mainstreamed this notion.

However, men, you are just as guilty of this sin when you enable it.

  1. So you know the depths of their heart? YOU know better than God what these women’s motives are, for you to make an assumption & a judgement that they hate God’s word?? I’m curious where in the Bible, GOD HIMSELF SAYS THIS. Because last I checked, Paul was a mere man just like the rest of us.

    Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.

    This article you’ve written is rather harsh, and I will believe in women who lead Godly lives and speak poorly of no one, before I believe a man who would make such harsh judgments against another human being.

    And again, I am interested to know where God himself says something of the sort. So far every reference I have seen of this is from Paul, who was an earthly man living in a time period where women weren’t regarded as much. Is Paul not capable of making a mistake? Was Paul writing to the people of Corinth or writing to Timothy with the mindset of “hey, you know what, I think God views us all as equals in all aspects and someday in the future perhaps our flawed society will recognize that?” or was he writing from the only standpoint that he was capable of viewing at that time?

    • It is not Paul’s word. It is the Word of God. Was it ever the Word of Paul? This is true but we do not need to say it in a harsh way though.

    • What did the apostle Paul say about women teaching? 1Tim 2 “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man, she is to remain quiet.” Why did he say that? “For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressors.” “for man was not formed from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man” 1Co 11:8. Paul also says in 1Co: “…the head of ever man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.”
      Christ dose teach or exercise authority over God; man does not teach or exercise authority over Christ, and by the same standard, women do not teach or exercise authority over men in God’s economy.
      Here is what it all boils down to: In Gen 3: 16 God curses Eve for her disobedience. He says – “…Your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you” Women, especially in these later days of feminism, balk at any man, husband or otherwise, ruling over them. They resist the place in the God ordained hierarchy of people and want to move up the chain of command at least one rung.

  2. I love this article about the truth of women in the ministry. Why is it that women have to be heard only in the church? If they are called to deliver God’s word, why can’t they do it outside of the pulpit? Answer; women who disobey Paul in this area alone, instead of everything that Paul teaches in the NT, are just jealous of men because of God’s order of things. Women who are going against Paul’s teachings and instructions, are not just ignoring one of Christ Jesus (chosen) men to accompany Him in His ministry, but they are picking and choosing what they want to accept in the scriptures and ignoring what they don’t like in scriptures. If the Bible gives us a definition of what the purpose of the scriptures are in the first place, why is it that so many women have a problem with God instituted in the first place. Women look closer at the scriptures and ask God to help you to understand it’s meaning: 2 TIMOTHY 3: 16-17 :(All scripture )* including the ones that people don’t want to accept* is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, 17- So that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Women, this means even the scriptures that Paul gives according to the subject of women and their participation in the church is included. Go back to Genesis and read where the God Himself, gives instructions to the women after the sinful act of Eve, GENESIS 3: 16- UNTO THE WOMNAN, HE SAID, i WILL GREATLY MULTIPLY THY SORROW AND THY CONCEPTION; IN SORROW THOU SHALT BRING FORTH CHILDREN; AND THY DESIRE SHALL BE TO THY HUSBAND, AND HE SHALL RULE OVER THEE! Now women please use common sense, if God made the man to be over the woman in the household, then it only makes sense that He will make the man to be over the woman in the church! Remember , it was the LORD GOD who said that the woman was the ” weaker vessel.” It does not make sense for the weaker vessel to be in charge of God’s church! Even the men who allow these women into the pulpit and give them authority over themselves and other men, are in trouble with GOD! But the LORD do tell us to ” let the wheat and tares grow together and in the end, He will do the separating the sheep from the goats. Women who assume authority in the pulpit and the weak men who allow them into the pulpit ; you do not want to stand before God and He tells you in MATTHEW 7: 21-23; 21- Not every one that saith unto me , Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22- Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23- And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. These scriptures cannot get any plainer than this! If you have the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus dwelling within your soul, you will not pick and choose only the scriptures that you feel pertain to you! You will abide by the decision of God and you will obey (all) of the scriptures. I beg of you to ask God to come into your hearts and show you the true way of not only fearing God, but loving Him with all of your heart, soul, body, mind and might; obeying His Word, and loving others as yourself. The reason why these men and women are going against God’s Holy Word, is because they do not have the first thing that God instructed us to have for Him; FEAR. This is why so many people are continuing to sin against GOD even when they become Christians, because they they think that Christ Jesus came to take away sins of the past and the future. This is not so. Christ came to take away the sins of those who desire to stop sinning against Him! We as Christians are to live a life down here on earth, as sin-free Saints of God. Holy means to be sin-free. When Christ Jesus comes back for His church, the church will have to be ” sin free,. without spot or wrinkle, without blame. Please ask God to help you to see what His will for you is and stop listening to Satan as he talks to you and tell you things to make you think that God is being unfair to you as woman. Women are special to God and Christ Jesus showed it by allowing them to accompany the Apostles on their journey, not lead the Apostles. May God bless you to accept His HOLY WORD unconditionally as you search for true guidance in following Him to eternity- your humble servant in Christ Jesus, Deniese M.

  3. Hello, Please allow me 2 comments.. First, we should not take the Bible verse out of its context and generalize, if you seriously think that women can’t teach men, that means that all the female teachers are sinners ? There have been many studies around it, and I agree, that those verses should be treated as the part of the whole scripture.. Some of the verses of this kind speak about relationship between men and women inside marriage, some of them are very specific to the situation that the church of Corinth has been going though at the time Paul wrote the scripture.. And finally, judging and criticizing your sisters in Christ is a sin, as it is God’s job.

    • Thank you. He was speaking to that church and what they were doing. If women can’t be teachers or have authority over men then what’s the point in having a mother? Do they not teach their sons?

      • We are to teach our children, including boys. They are not men and it is our duty as Mothers. There is a reason that God wrote his word through Paul. I do have to add though… MEN STEP UP AND LEAD FOR MANY OF YOU ARE WEAK OF SPIRIT!

  4. So women can’t preach but Deborah was allowed to Judge the land. Paul also referred to Phoebe in the Bible as a deacon. Anna was in the New Testament and prophesied about Jesus. Why would God give a woman the gift of prophecy which is listed second before a teacher but prevent women to be preachers. What sense does this make? NONE.

  5. You make God out to sound extremely misogynistic. According to your interpretation of this single verse in Scripture, all women are to now stop teaching and to be quiet in the church. I am not arguing against this verse. I am arguing against your interpretation of it.

    Please read the whole book of 1 Timothy in order to see the context of this verse. There are a couple of hints throughout this chapter that Paul is talking directly to the culture that Timothy is currently in and so may not be meant to be a universal truth for all women at all times. If you don’t agree with that, then please explain how Anna was a respected prophetess (see Luke 2:36 – 38) and please explain why Jesus took the time to speak to the Samaritan women at the well (John 4). Jewish culture made it extremely taboo at the time to even talk to Samaritans, not just Samaritan women.

    Please also say what Paul instructs the men to do in the church as well just a little bit before this verse (1 Timothy 2:8), and let me know how you would interpret it.

    I truly am curious to know your response, as I am debating how I should teach the book of Judges to a couple of my girlfriends in about four weeks. No, not to any guys.

  6. I wish I could edit my last post. I came out with an attacking tone of voice in my words, and that wasn’t right. This article does mention another one of Paul’s writings that talks about the role of women in the church, which I need to acknowledge does contribute to this discussion.

    However, I would still like to hear from you how we women need to see ourselves. I am not even a feminist, and your take on these Scriptures suggests that women are inherently not as good as men at Biblical teaching. I am trying to reconcile this with the many women in the Bible that have amazing stories of faith and of witnessing to their communities.
