I have read your writeup about diabolical doctrines and all the relevant quotes concrning the issue raised by Apostle Paul on women being silent in church. I agree with some of the issues raised intoto. However, as a wife of the pastor, I help in futhering the work of God by moderating the service. I lead the prayer and worship and my husband brings the message. When my husband is not around I gather the children of God together and I share the word with them.
Now, my question is; If a brother happens to be in our midst that is spiritually immature I'm I usurping authority over him? Can you explain to me the what Apostle Paul meant in 1 Timothy 2 :15 KJV. If Paul said Notwithstanding she shall be saved and he enumerated those things, is he talking of being saved from sin which was paid on the cross by the Lord Jesus or she shall be saved from those rules he had given above?
I totally agree to the fact that women ordained as pastors because they enrolled in the seminary and ordained has caused a lot of problems for the worldliness we find today in the churches. Women are susceptible to fall prey to satan as eve did. Bishoprick are for men because they are disciplined and vigilant in unmasking the devices of satan while most women an easily fall prey to the devil.
Now my worry is this can a woman due to the verse 15 of 1 Timothy due to child bearing; being grounded in the faith and practices charity and follows holiness and sobriety not be exempted from that rule as that verse is indicating? Why is the word Notwithstanding used?
I am not a pastor but I heard that even as a pastor's wife I am supposed to stay silent in the church when men are present. Can you throw more light on this issue? What about the Lord's promise on the last days to pour His spirit unto all flesh? Are women also restricted from witnessing to a man? Please I need some answers to be sure that I am not contradicting the bible stand point. God bless you
