is a text of Scripture which is fervently hated and trashed by the vast majority
of Christendom today. If you have caved in to the politically correct gang,
you will get on edge very quickly as you read this. The interesting thing
though is that this text was given to the Lord's Church by the Church's Apostle
under inspiration. Read, and consider please:
Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that
are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness
and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the
truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the
man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in
due time. 7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak
the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath
and doubting. 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest
apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or
pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness)
with good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the
man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then
Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the
transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if
they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
here is part of the very next chapter of the same book. Note who is to be
a deacon or bishop. No possible room is allowed for a Christian lady to
be a church leader. Paul was walking close enough to the Holy Spirit that
God would have given Paul the whole load. To say that women were insinuated
into the next text is mental gymnastics of devils.
Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he
desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one
wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient,
not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having
his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how
to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) There
is NO discussion of a woman qualifying to rule either her home or the church.
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted
up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must
have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the
snare of the devil. 8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued,
not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9 Holding the mystery
of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 And let these also first be proved;
then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. 11 Even
so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their
own houses well. 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
is the last text which eliminates ALL women from taking any office or place in
life in which they have ANY authority over men.
3:16 Unto the woman 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.
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for
they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it
with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. A
man in the Lord's Church has NO option but to obey a woman who is in authority
over him. If he thinks this text, and the others here, prevent the woman
from ruling over him, he should GET OUT of that local church at once.... which
he will do if he is more than a wimpy little grease spot in the ecclesiastical
3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.
O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy
is NOT a compliment. It is indicative of a nation which is backslidden and
weak. Golda Maier of Israel was no hero-- She was a Zionist Tussy with a
monstrous ego and a hateful attitude. I happen to know that she would NOT
respond with compassion to men who disagreed with her unless those men treated
her like a good old boy. She refused to respond to leaders who wanted to
find peace in Israel. She was a bawdy trouble maker.
Corinthians 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for
Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he
is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the
head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth
her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
And, who is her
head? Answer: Her husband. So, how can a lady preacher or bishop
pray in submission to her husband when the wimp is sitting in the congregation
submitting to her? Answer: The sleazy weasel CANNOT receive the submission
of his bishopette. Thus, her prayers will not be answered due to her disobedience.
9:36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation
is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.
This woman was
famous for being a New Testament woman of great honor. She did NOT take
authority over men-- she did good deeds continually. Any Christian woman
who is not satisfied with this pattern, who has to be lifted up to speak at a
podium from time to time, is a rebel and of no spiritual use to the Holy Ghost.
Mark it down. It is right out of the Word of God.
are the topics we need to discuss:
1. Lady preachers--
The "office of a bishop" was NOT some lofty position like we see today
in the Anglican Church and the Roman Whore system. The "office of a bishop"
was simply the duty and office of pastor in a local church, and nothing more can
be added by early church history. It was egomaniacs in the early church,
and later the Whore Vatican system, which made the title "Bishop" some lofty position.
So a lady is not possibly qualified in God's mind to be a pastor of a local
church. If so, then how can she be the husband of one wife? Of course,
the Methodists are rapidly working on this as they consider ordaining lesbians
and marrying same sex people. But this is Babylonian, NOT the local Christian
Ladies in offices of deacon, Sunday School Superintendent, and other rank
over men-- The above text makes is very clear that deacons are
again men only. Paul makes NO room for deaconesses. While one text
in the New Testament has a feminine ending on the Greek word for "deacon," this
is NOT possibly a justification for adding women to 1 Timothy 3. Deacons,
and bishops, rule over the affairs of the assembly, and a lady filling this office
would have to rule men. If she did not do so, she would violate her duty
to TAKE the office and use it to God's Glory, for her non-rule over the men would
result in those men having NO head over them in the local church.
3. Single lady
missionaries-- The story below on this page tells the story pretty
well. But let us just note this-- Lady single missionaries are NOT found
in the Early Church and Apostolic Church age. Jesus had 12 disciples, and
not one was a woman. Paul did not seek the companionship of ladies in his
travels. To be sure, Paul received the help of ladies in building up a strong
local church, but he then left them behind to stay in the local church. Lady
single missionaries plant churches which are weak, youthful in leadership, with
men who need mothering, and these women often fall into lesbian and adulterous
affairs. I lived there-- I saw it-- an honest mission leader will NOT deny
Radio lady Bible teachers-- Simply read the section on lady Bible
Conference speakers. Add this thought. Woman who listen to these lady
radio teachers will glean bits and pieces which are "such a blessing," and they
will begin to teach their husbands and lord it over them by using the radio popette
as a final authority. This reverses and trashes the Bible role of the husband
who should study the Word and teach his wife. If you think this is cute,
then I must ask you if you are really born again.
Ladies Conference Speakers-- The question is always asked,
"Can a woman teach women?" Of course they can, and they are commanded to
do so, but NOT "on the road again." For the very thing the older women are
to teach the younger women MUST be taught in the home where they belong. Thus...
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; 4 That they
may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
command CANNOT be fulfilled by running to Gull Lake, Winona Lake, Hume Lake, Schroon
Lake, and Maranatha Bible Conference, and teaching dip head Christianettes
who chase them, how to stay at home and be a good wife. Their own very absence
from their own home makes these conference lady speakers unqualified. Their
problem is that they are not satisfied to stay in the local church and do what
God told them to do. They want to be famous and see to it that Zondervan
publishes their book. They are total disasters and ought to be avoided.
Ladies on governing boards of local churches, holding denominational office, and
sitting on mission boards-- Women who rule on such boards are
spiritual tug boat pilots. They may not overtly perform lesbian acts, but
spiritually, they are lesbians at heart. They are women who are not satisfied
with their role as a woman, and they accept and campaign for power with Christian
good old boys. The men who let them join the board are weak and show that
they need mothering and don't truly trust the heavenly Father alone to guide them.
Ladies who lead in their homes-- These women, in a word,
are destroying their homes. They are highly likely to turn their boys into
sodomites. They show their daughters how to dominate men. Worst of
all, they may break their husbands. When I hear a woman say that she just has
to lead in spiritual things in her home I know that she is very likely ruling
her man. and he must allow her to in order to have a little peace int he home.
lust to rule overcomes their love for the man they married, and day by day they
make the man into a slave of their ego. These men are known among other
men as hen pecked and worse. The community is not fooled, and the bossy
wife, in her old age, becomes a cranky grabby trouble maker. These women
usually fear sex, and they teach their kids that sex is only for having children
and is to be barely tolerated within a marriage. These women are the chief
gossips of the local church and the community. They are ALWAYS at the root
of ousting a good pastor. If you are one of these women, you have NO hope
of Christian victory unless you publicly repent and confess your sin against the
Lord, His Church, and your husband. If you refuse to do this, your sons
could turn to sodomy and your daughter will likely be just like you.
You will ask, "Why are you
so rough on this one?" Answer: There is nothing worse in this world
than a woman who destroys her husband, her son, and her daughter at the same time.
She will raise the Hitlers and the Mansons and the Bill Clintons.
27:15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.
16 Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand,
which bewrayeth itself.
Ladies who leave their homes to work where they rule over men--
An illustration of how the home is perverted by ruling women is Hillary
Clinton. She has ruled and ridden Bill Clinton to fame and fortune, and
now she is about to trash him. Bill has just about lost all his usefulness
to this tussy of the One World Club. She will soon either divorce him or
arrange to have him killed. Young man-- Do you want to die in disgrace and
defeat? Do you want to be broken daily in spirit and be the laughing stock
of your own children? If so, marry a woman whose mother ruled her father
and sassed him continually.
is a boo boo, they shout; Their mother tell them, "Shut up your mouth."
They tell their mother, "Oh, no;" "Our Daddy can't be ugly so." "Shut
your mouth," "Go away," "Daddy is a boo boo eh?"
Proverbs 31 tells of a Bible
woman who stays at home. She is no wimp or mere slave, and she finds ways
to care for the home and even buy a field. But, she does NOT exalt herself
at the expense of her husband, and the result is that her children and husband
exalt HER. Her husband is known in the streets because of her good works.
Read about it please for yourself.
Lady school teachers in Public and Christian schools--
This seems to be a tricky one. It has long been the custom in the United
States for women to teach in public school.
First, let us
note that in Israel in Jesus' day the Rabbis at the local synagogue taught the
children. So, Jesus was not taught as a boy by women, nor did He submit
to them, other than his mother in biblical respect. Hillary's village did
NOT raise the kids-- the godly men did.
we must ask when a boy becomes a man. If that is at about age 13, then a
boy over 13 should not be taught formally by a woman other than his mother who
is under the headship of her husband, the boy's Dad. I see no problem with
a young child being taught by a godly woman. Of course, there are none in
the Public Schools of the United States, for if they were godly, they would stay
at home. So, if you have a godly lady who tutors your young child, and if
you, sir, are in charge of the whole format and content, I see no problem.
where a boy is under a woman teacher in a public school, that boy must be
warned not to allow that woman to teach him ANYTHING other than cold facts of
Math and History etc. The father of the boy must go to the school and demand
that the Principal not allow the woman teacher to teach ANY moral or spiritual
principles to his son. This applies to the alleged "Christian School" also.
if this cannot be obeyed and accomplished through the public OR church school,
then the father must bring his son home to be taught at home. Whatever he
learns at home, the son will not be confounded in his zeal to be a man before
Christian College, in the Florida pan handle, boasts of its preparing young men
for the work of the ministry. The rules in the school are very strict, and women
students and faculty are under close supervision to insure the respect of the
above Apostolic standards. Ah, but there is one exception-- the founder
passed into the Lord's presence recently. Did the man's widow stand back
and let the men of the school rule? NO. She stepped right into her husbans
place and ruled the men of the school in the midst of ALL considerations. She
took a strong stand on the King James Bible. The college leaders, because
of her power, deferred to the widow and tooted the "KJV only" horn loud and clear.
"KJV only" Christians around the country were encouraged, but that was short
have learned though that the college's leaders can't wait for the widow to die
so that they can take back the rule and pitch out the "KJV only" position. It
is interesting that this college has a neighbor school which has been a long time
defender of the KJV, and the PCC people HATE the Bible Institute people and mock
them and have been known to lie about them. The old founder's widow will
die one day soon, and then the scholars in the big college will be free to again
correct the Bible. They do so obliquely already, and their preacher boys
trash the KJV by correcting it eagerly. So we shall soon see that a woman cannot
rule men successfully in the flesh.
received from a reader: The lady super-power in the big college has not
yet lost her husband-- she is not yet a widow. This is even more serious
and frightening-- It seems that she is THE power and the glory, though her husband
is not yet dead.
the early 1960s, the American Assembly of God sent a man to start a work in Tanzania.
His last name was Bruton. The man was zealous and full of good works.
He preached the Gospel, and he desired to start Pauline local churches.
So, looking around at the Africa Inland Mission, the Mennonite Mission,
the Lutheran mission, the Anglicans, and many other missions, Brother Bruton noted
that many evil trends and problems came from allowing single lady missionaries
to enter the mission field to serve and do church planting ministry. So,
Brother Bruton sent word back to the USA AOG missions headquarters that he refused
to take even one single lady missionary. His work had much less sorrow in
leadership because of this. What happened in later years I do not know.
I would be very shocked if he was not followed by a man who eagerly took
on single ladies in the work. It is so hard to get men who are willing to
be missionaries that most missions world wide make this compromise in due time.
watching the Lord's Church during my years of living with a father who was a pastor
and a missionary, and after traveling thousands of miles all over the USA and
visiting local churches on deputation trips of my parents and my own family, I
can say one thing with authority: Having observed local churches which are
started by women, even good "Bible women" who started with Sunday schools, I have
not found one mature and solid work which was started by a woman. You will
of course think you know an exception. I would be happy to come and examine
your local church at your expense. Perhaps I will have to agree with you,
but I fully expect your church indeed is ruled de facto by women who rule their
men folk. Women who start churches make sure they gather milque toast wimps
as male leaders. And folks, that is a fact.
hair, bossy wives, and slacker husbands"-- John R. Rice hit the nail on
the head. You might not like John R. Rice or some of his "preacher boys,"
but he did NOT leave a trail of wimpy greazy little manlettes to lead the Lord's
work. What is YOUR pattern? Paul's or Dr. Dobson's?
of seeking to follow the Bible in these things, thousands of alleged Christianettes
come up with all sorts of horror stories based on widowship, divorce, orphans,
and other true problems. Here is the rule-- The rule reigns, and the problems
get in line with the rule of the Word of God. Stop trying to make out that
you are a special case of some sort. So, your husband is unsaved, and you
have an opportunity to teach a Bible class at the Christian School. Do so,
and you may well be sending you husband to hell in a hand basket. Your husband
is your only class, and submission the only lesson-- YOUR submission.
Let us stop trying to find
special cases and simply OBEY the Lord and His Word.
the way, I know your pastor has ladies for church secretaries-- about 99% do this.
And, I know that, from Hammond to Honolulu, there are sorry tales of sincere Godly
women leaving home to serve the Lord all week at the church house, only to end
up in bed with the pastor. Save your home and the pastor's home a lot of sorrow--
YOU stay home where God wants you.
Titus 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; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their
husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home,
good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the
man, but to be in silence.
Now, this invokes notions
of dumb broads, right? Well, that is the world of pagans calling to us.
How can this godly woman be silent and dumb and still teach other younger
women to be good wives. Other texts allow for women to prophecy and pray
in submission to their husbands. What is meant in I Timothy 2?
I must resort to some of
my choice memories. I remember Marge T____. She had a class for young
wives, she studied the Word deeply, she had a sweet spirit, and she married after
widowhood to start a new and godly home. But Marge had a fantastic sense
to know when to be silent. And, that silence was often the greatest comment
on her spiritual maturity. Another woman in the same church would declare
anything in the church, anything which she didn't like, as "tacky," and she did
so in bawdy loud terms in the middle aisle after the sermon. She, by the
way, was a drop out of the PCC faculty in Florida. Interesting, right?
I recall the silence of
many women who were strong wives to powerful men. This silence was never
broken in public, but one small peek by accident into the marriage of the two
would show a partnership of powerful strength. Both the husband and wife
depended on each other for spiritual strength and encouragement, each building
up the other. But, this kind of woman is silent in groups where the men
are leading and prevailing. I have also seen a number of men virtually destroyed
because their wives were loud and raucous fools.
will now be very interesting to see how much loud E-Mail I receive from women
and hen pecked men :-)
