• If it is to me on the street, when I am 13 years old to try and convert me when I am an easily influenced young teen, then yes. otherwise no, don't see a problem with it.
  • I Corinthians 14:34,35 says 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. 14:35 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. The women in our church are not allowed to voice their opinion in our business meetings but rather through their husbands or a male in the church, simply because of these 2 verses. I don't think it is right for a woman to preach or teach men. They should teach other women and the children.
  • This response goes much deeper than the initial question. The answer may be found in Genesis, where Yahweh says to Eve that Adam was to rule over her (Genesis 3:17). Yahweh from the Beginning established that the man was to be the head of the relationship. Many people feel that this command no longer applies in such an advanced and modern world, however, Yahweh’s commands do not change through time. Regardless of time or culture, God's Word rules supreme for all those that will seek it with a pure and honest heart. God's regulations and standards for mankind do not change. His Word remains the same for all generations. Malachi says in Malachi 3:6 that Yahweh changes not. Therefore, we must understand that Yahweh’s commands are perfect and do not change for any reason. In 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 Paul says that women are to remain silent within the assembly: "Women should remain silent in the assemblies. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the assembly" Paul says that women are not allowed to speak in the assembly. When a women has a question she is to ask her husband at home in private. In Paul’s letter to young Timothy he again makes it a point to mention that women are to obey their husbands and learn in quietness. "A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent" (1 Timothy 2:11-12) In 1 Corinthians 12:29 the Apostle Paul lists the different offices within His body, and all are masculine positions: "Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers?" Nowhere did Paul or anyone else ordain a woman to official offices in the Body of Messiah. In the Old Testament we find that all priests were men, never women. The women’s role may not be formally within the assembly, but the women also have responsibilities which greatly affects the assembly as a whole. In Titus Yahweh through His Apostle says that women are to be sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, submissive to their husband. The mother also is responsible with the father to raise the children in God. She is to teach them how to love their fellow man, and God. Any assembly or culture starts with the family, and the morals and ethics are built from there. If the family is strong the culture will be strong, if the family is weak the society will be weak. Women have a great role in accomplishing God's truth, and without women no assembly or society would survive.
  • No. They are doing what God has called them to do just as there male counterparts. If God didn't think woman could preach. Then why did He allow a woman to be ruler of Israel?
  • I see nothing wrong with it other than the fact it's preaching about something not real.. other than that go for it sister.
  • Preaching, no, they are okay. Phoebe was a minister, obviously, not ignoring what he said about teaching in the congregation, but they are to preach, as Jesus gave the command in Matthew 28:18-20
  • Yes. They're preaching the Gospel of Christ. They have better things to do.
  • the reason women are preaching is because so many men said NO! to their call. women know the men should be preaching. but what to do when God calls, one must obey. so where are all the obedient men?
  • Oh, yes, indeed. We should learn from the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusettes and burn them at the stake.
  • lol, women are good at preaching. my wife preaches at me all the time. "did you get the fence weather treated yet?" " dont forget the boys have boyscouts tonight." she is good at it and i thank her for it.
  • With their spaghetti sauce recipe? Whaddayoo mean? ;-)
  • Yes but that's because I believe that anyone who preaches the Gospel of Christ is doing something wrong.
  • No but a woman that preaches a religion that is not in her best interest is deluded and a victim. Any woman that preaches fundamentalist Christianity, Islam, or Judaism is preaching against her own freedom and dignity. She is truly a slave in reality and thought. There is no deeper form of bondage and I feel really sorry for her.
