Commentary: Women in the Church

 by Guy C. LaMar

As we go along in this journey towards the end of this age we are seeing more and more a great weakness within the Church of God.

More and more men are failing as leaders, and more and more women are calling the shots in churches.

Women are being ALLOWED positions of AUTHORITY over men.

Whether in the Church or in the home.

It appears that men – as a whole - are or are becoming emasculated.

People NEED to stop thinking outside of the structured Church box to give out THEIR OWN worldly input of thoughts of things so as to change what God’s very established living word says.

People NEED to get back to the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints and stick to the solid trunk of the tree – God’s living word!

No one wants to hurt people’s feelings, but we live in this present evil age of extremely petty and overly sensitive people.

Now personally, I’d rather piss off people for defending the living Word of God than make God angry at me because I did not stand up for His word.

And, take note: I am very well established in what I believe that I will NOT change one iota to what I stand for!

With me, there is NO ROOM for any debates on this subject.

It is important to stand against those who wish to twist God’s word to fit their own agenda.

Friends, I will NEVER EVER allow a woman to teach in any church meeting that I am over, and nor will I stay in a church meeting where a woman is teaching.

Now, I have no issue with a woman giving testimony in praise to Almighty God – but that will be outside of the actual church service – meaning, she will NOT be allowed to speak between the opening prayer and the closing prayer.

After the closing prayer – which is officially the end of church service – she may give her testimony.

Because a church service is actually during services and begins with the opening prayer of a blessing on the services and the closing prayer – the conclusion of the service.

Before and after that it is only fellowship time – a weekly “family reunion” of the brethren in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The apostle Paul teaches – inspired by the Holy Spirit of our God -
“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” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; KJV.

“Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12) And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; NKJV.

“Let a woman learn in quietness and be submissive in every respect. 12) For I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; NET.

“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12) I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man” - 1 Tim. 2:11-12; NIV.

“Let a woman quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12) But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; NAS.

“Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12) For I do not allow a woman to teach, or to exercise authority over men; but she is to keep quiet” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; Challoner-Rheims, Catholic Version.

“Women should listen and learn quietly and humbly. 12) I never let women teach men or lord it over them. Let them be silent in your church meetings” – 1 Tim. 2:11-12; TLB.
He also teaches us in 1st Corinthians –
“Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says” – 1 Cor. 14:34; NKJV.

“Let your women keep silent 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” – 1 Cor. 14:34; KJV.

“ … As in all the congregations of the saints, 34) women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says” – 1 Cor. 14:33, 34; NIV.

“Let the women keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but let them subject themselves, just as the Law also says” – 1 Cor. 14:34; NAS.

“Women should be silent during the church meetings. They are not to take part in the discussion, for they are subordinate to men, as the Scriptures also declare” – 1 Cor. 14:34; TLB.
People need NOT try and pervert the living word of God to fit their own agenda. □
