A BIBLICAL EXPLANATION WHY... WOMEN CAN NOT POSSIBLY HAVE AUTHORITY OVER MEN OR STAND AS SHEPHERDS IN A LOCAL CHURCH.
First of all let us go to the beginning, it is always a good place to start anything... Genesis 2:18.
It says here plainly that the Lord God made a helper for the man/Adam, it does not say He/God made a leader, teacher or advisor... but a helper.
It also says that Adam named all the creatures and everything upon the earth ...God gave Adam that authority. If God made man and woman to have equal authority... Adam and Eve would have named the animals together.
THE REALITY IS THIS ....AUTHORITY IS NOT EQUALITY!
But because of the lust of men for money, fame, numbers, success in the eyes of men and women within the church structures throughout the world, weak kneed male leaders have suffered Jezebel to have her way in denominations and religious roles and the result is disaster.
However, (the body of Christ, the bride, the Church) will never accept the twelve apostlettes and their Ahab husbands...
1 Timothy 2:8-15, verse nine... this verse is completely erased from most local church requirements in today's world. Much to the delight of Jezebel and the fall of many men.
Verse twelve... for a woman to be a pastor or teacher of men in a local church, automatically defies scripture ...please read / 1 Corinth 11:3.
Verse Fourteen... Adam was not deceived, no matter how many or how much Ahab leaders try to twist the scriptures to please the Jezebels of the world it will always remain the same... forever... Eve was deceived. The devil, the snake, satan fooled the woman. Eve was no ordinary woman, she lived in a perfect realm, if Eve was deceived by Satan, how much more the women of today who live in a totally corrupt realm/unrighteous. Some women obviously in their conceit see themselves above the first lady/Eve....1 Peter 3:7.
It is true that there is neither Jew nor Greek, male nor female in Christ but this does not mean that God has taken the authority in His Church/Body the home and the land and given it over to women. Once again ...authority is not equality, even though this wicked world would like to think they can abort God's Established Word, it can never be changed for any tribe, tongue, nation, religion or gender. A hen will never be able to crow like a rooster nor will a rooster ever be able to lay eggs... unless of course it is a freak... Genesis 3:4-6 & Proverbs 9:13.
Although there were times in the old testament where God used the odd woman to lead, it was a very rare occasion and nowhere in the new testament do we find where God ordained women to lead the Church on, as a regular and common practise. How in the world can a woman be the husband of one wife... unless she is a lesbian ... 1 Timothy 3:2,12.
It is only the power hungry and rebellious woman that ever seeks authority, the true woman of God is an Esther not a Vashti... Esther 1:1-22. ...selah.
