WHY BIBLE NEVER PERMITTED A WOMAN PASTOR IN THE CHURCH? 1TIMOTHY 3: 1 -7 KJV


Do you know that the authority of the word of God does not really permit a woman pastor in the church?

A woman can be a soul winneAr but never a woman pastor in the church!!!

What does the Holy Bible say about woman preacher/pastor in the church in the pulpit?

Do you know that the Bible only recommended woman to be a soul winner in the street(s) but not a woman pastor in the church?

I’m not against woman but I follow the authority of the word of God.

The authority of the word of God is final – Psalms 119:89 KJV “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”

Do you know that the Bible does not approve woman-led denomination, that is, woman-led church?

The word of God says we should test all things and hold fast to what is good, right (truth) – and flee from every appearance of evil ( anything or anyone that disobeys the word of God) – 1 Thessalonians 5:21 – 22 KJV “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.“

Let us use scriptures to prove whether it is right or not for a woman to become a woman pastor in the church.

Let me tell you this I don’t follow any man but I follow the Bible – I follow the authority of the word of God.

Also I don’t follow any woman but I follow the Bible – I follow the authority of the word of God.

Let us search the scriptures to rightly divide the word of truth whether it is scriptural for a woman to be a woman pastor in the church or to have a woman-led denomination (woman-led church) or not? – John 5:39 KJV and 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV ”Search the scriptures….Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.“

The foundation of everything we do in the kingdom of God should be built on the foundation of the scripture(s), the word of God –  Psalms 11:3 KJV “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?“

Mind you woman can become a female/woman minister to preach and teach the word of God on the street(s) but not in the church!

The authority of the word of God does not permit a woman pastor in the church to usurp authority over the man in the church through the office of a pastor!!

The office of a pastor is only scripturally recommended for a man pastor in the pulpit preaching and teaching in the church.

I know many will not be comfortable with me or like me on this issue but let us follow what the Bible says about a woman preacher in the church.

It is better for me to have trouble with human beings than to have trouble with God – Galatians 1:10 – 11 KJV “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man…”

 

There are four (4) main scriptures in the Bible that say woman should not be a woman pastor/preacher in the church:

Once again, woman can preach and teach the word of God in the street(s) and she should to win souls for the kingdom of God but never a woman preacher/pastor in the pulpit in the church.

The NUMBER ONE (1) scripture to study is 1 Timothy 2: 11 – 14 KJV


1 Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Now look at 1 Timothy 2:11 – 12 “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” The word of God says here clearly and plainly that the woman should not be a woman preacher/ pastor in the church; she should not usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence in the church!

I am not the person who wrote the Bible but the Holy Spirit – 2 Peter 1:20 – 21 KJV  ”Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

But many pastors, especially prosperity gospel pastors have twisted this scripture 1 Timothy 2: 11 – 14 KJV  to mean another different interpretation and application that woman can become a woman pastor/preacher in the pulpit in the church  service occupying and functioning in the capacity of the office of a pastor in the church . They use Galatians 3: 26 – 29 KJV and 1 Corinthians 12:12 – 14 KJV to skillfully twist, misinterpret and misapply 1 Timothy 2: 11 – 14 KJV.

Read 1 Timothy 2: 11 – 14 KJV again, you will see and understand the reason why the Bible says the woman should not teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence in the church. The reason is that woman can easily be deceived than men – they are too emotional – 1 Timothy 2:13 – 14 KJV “For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.“ And point from this scripture is that man is the head of woman both physically and spiritually in the sight of God – 1 Corinthians 11:3 KJV ”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.”

The word of God dogmatically, directly and clearly says woman should not be a woman pastor in the office of the pastor in the church because she is not to usurp authority over the man. Man is always led by facts and evidence as they are not too emotional to be easily deceived like women.

NUMBER TWO (2) SCRIPTURE

1 Corinthians 14:34 – 35 KJV”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. 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 above scripture 1 Corinthians 14:34 – 35 KJV says woman is not permitted to become a woman pastor/preacher in the office of the pastor to be in the pulpit in the church. This scripture says it is a shame for women to speak in the church – to usurp authority over the man in the church. But also many pastors, especially prosperity gospel pastors have twisted, misinterpreted and misapplied this scripture for their ulterior benefits of charismatic lifestyle and their family so that their family members can succeed them to continue the church business, that is, family church business empire.

Read again and again! The authority of the word of God says it is a shame to have a woman pastor/preacher speaks in the pulpit during the church service in the church. This is what the authority of the word of God dogmatically, plainly and clearly says.

NUMBER THREE (3) SCRIPTURE
1 Timothy 3:1 – 7 KJV

1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
1 Timothy 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1 Timothy 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
1 Timothy 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
1 Timothy 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
1 Timothy 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Read this verse one (1) of the above scripture again: 1 Timothy 3:1 ”This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.” The Bible (the word of God) mentioned “If a man” ; the word of God did not mention “ if a woman “ but a man. This verse tells us that a man should be a man pastor –  not a woman pastor – it should be a man pastor.

Still this scripture verse one says ”If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.” The word “bishop “ means “pastor”, that is, “ the office of a bishop“ means “the office of a pastor” for man – and never for woman in the church to occupy and function  in the office of a pastor –  never a woman pastor in the church says the scripture ( the authority of the word of God).

Read verse two (2) : 1 Timothy 3:2 ”A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife,” The authority of the word of God says “ A bishop“ meaning ”A pastor” must be the husband (man) of one wife. This scripture did not say “the wife (woman) of one husband (man) – this scriptural instruction is direct, clear and straightforward.

If you read further from verse three (3) downwards to verse seven (7) , the authority of the word of God used the word “he” – never “she”. That is, woman is not qualified/permitted spiritually and physically to be a woman pastor (bishop) thereby occupying the office of a bishop/pastor and standing in the pulpit during the church service to preach.

The entire perquisite for the office of the bishop (pastor) mentioned above in 1 Timothy 3:1 – 7 KJV is for man – never for woman because woman is not permitted to be a woman pastor in the church, to usurp authority over the man.

However, the only way a woman can become a woman pastor In the church affair is to twist 1 Timothy 3:2 ”A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife” like this “ A bishop then must be blameless, the wife of one husband”. That is, woman should become the husband while the husband becomes the wife or a lesbian (as husband) marrying another lesbian (as wife).

Don’t be surprised if you see a woman pastor as a divorcee or a woman pastor secretly involves in the practice of lesbianism in the church, which is common in some prosperity gospel churches, even some Pentecostal churches where you see woman pastors occupying the office of a pastor (bishop). Even look  at their marriages/marital life , you see sexual scandals, adultery, fornication, – in fact sexual sins as they are disobeying the authority of the word of God not to become a woman pastor/bishop in the church affair.

NUMBER FOUR (4) SCRIPTURE
Titus 1: 5 – 9 KJV

Titus 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:
Titus 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
Titus 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Please if you don’t like this publication, don’t take it  up with me but take it up with God because I am telling what the authority of the word of God says. It means you don’t like the Bible. This what the scripture says about any woman not to become the woman preacher/pastor in the church occupying the office of a bishop/pastor standing in the pulpit to preach during the church service.

Now look at Titus 1:5 – 6 “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.“ The authority of the word of God mentioned the requirements to be met – a bishop/pastor must be the husband ( man) of one wife. The scripture here did not say the wife (woman) of one husband.

The authority of the word of God says man as a pastor must have one wife – it  never says woman as a pastor must have one husband.

However, many don’t know this truth and time of ignorance God overlooks, therefore God is saying this disobedience to the authority of His word must stop now and genuine repentance must follow in any denomination where there are woman pastors in the church affair –  Acts 17:30 ”And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.”

For the fact that miracles, signs and wonders are happening in the woman-led church/denomination does not  matter, but what matters is the obedience to the authority of the word of God .

The obedience to the authority of the word of God is the fruit of the spirit which every Christian must use to know the church or denomination living in obedience to the word of God. You don’t know any pastor, preacher, ministry or church by the miracles, signs and wonders but by the fruit of the obedience to the word of God.

To study in detail for a better and deeper understanding, read for free this rich and Holy Spirit filled publication at KDP AMAZON, my book : “Pastor’s Little Foxes: The Secrets Of Pastor’s Little Foxes In The Vineyard”

Note: Proverbs 23:23 NKJV “Buy the truth, and do not sell it…”

Please, bless someone or group of people in Christian community with this publication by sharing it. It means that you belong to the great company of the children of God who published it – Psalms 68:11 KJV “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it”

  • Dear Sir,
    With all due respect, i write to disagree with you on some of your postulations about a woman not being allowed to either preach or pastor a church. There are a plethora of evidences in the bible where women have had to lead the men without any qualms from the men. Deborah, a prophetess judged Israel (Judges 4&5). She was both a spiritual leader and a political leader. Huldah was also a prophetess that king Joash resorted to (2 kings 22:14) during his reign. The four prophetic daughters of Philip the evangelist in the New Testament (Acts 21:8-9) are ‘prime examples of female leadership in the church which has been hidden in the shadow of history’
    If you read closely the book of Joel 2:28-29 which was fulfilled in Acts 2:17-18, the Lord is not gender biased in the distribution of His gifts to man ( man in the generic sense).
    How come the other apostles never emphasized this point in their ministration? If you read Paul’s epistles closely, you will discover that some are laced with his personal opinions and not divine instruction. Don’t forget that Paul was a traditionalist who adhered strictly to Judaism before his encounter with Christ. His opinion about women did not change even after his conversion. Each time Paul expressed an opinion that was not expressly from God, he always made it clear that such opinion or instruction was not from God.
    If the present day church were to adhere strictly to Paul’s admonition about women in the church, it means that women would not be heard uttering any word in the church not even singing (1 Corinthians 14:34 – 35 KJV”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. 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. “)
    Question is ” Is that what our Lord Jesus commanded? Do you not know the role women played in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ? When Mary Magdalene anointed the feet of Jesus, what was Jesus’ response to the act?
    My take is that, this is the era of the dispensation of the gospel. Whether it is a man or woman that leads or preaches the gospel that souls would be saved, so let it be. Let’s not be bogged down by religious dogmas that prevents us from reaching out to the unsaved.

    • Thank you sir for your response/comment. Please sir, let me know your view with the scriptures to support it.
