SUDE Ministries: DOES SCRIPTURE ALLOW FOR WOMEN LEADERSHIP/ELDERSHIP IN THE CHURCH?

NOTE: #WOMEN are not inferior in Christ. They are equal to Men in Christ and spiritually in the Body of Christ. Men and Women are both equal in value before God. However, Women are weaker vessels. IT IS JUST ABOUT THE ROLES GOD HAS DESIGNED FOR BOTH OF THEM TO PLAY!

NEVERTHELESS THE WOMAN IS NOT EQUAL TO THE MAN CONCERNING AUTHORITY AND LEADERSHIP BOTH IN THE CHURCH AND FAMILY!

THIS IS ABOUT AUTHORITY/LEADERSHIP DESIGNED BY GOD!

There is not even one verse in the Bible that says or insinuate that WOMEN CAN LEAD or WOMEN SHOULD LEAD in the Church (The General Congregation). NOT EVEN ONE SCRIPTURE FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION!

Some people say it’s Tradition or Culture. OF COURSE! TRADITIONS OF MEN and CULTURE OF MEN!

They only say this based on ASSUMPTIONS and PRESUMPTIONS! It is FALSEHOOD and DECEPTION!

Let’s Begin! GET YOUR BIBLES UP!!

#AUTHORITY and #LEADERSHIP in the Church and Family as commanded by God is a serious business to God! You cannot disobey the LORD in this matter by deliberately ignoring Scriptures and think you know Him or serve Him!

OLDER WOMEN are only INSTRUCTED TO TEACH YOUNGER WOMEN! (See TITUS 2: 3 – 5)

#DEBORAH only prophesied but GOD CHOSE BARAK to LEAD His people! (JUDGES 4: 6 – 7)

BISHOPS (Overseers/Elders) and DEACONS are all MEN! (1 TIMOTHY 3: 2 and 12)

When WOMEN and CHILDREN lead, it is a SIGN that things have GONE WRONG! (ISAIAH 3: 12)

This Scripture (GALATIANS 3: 26 – 28) is talking about our (Christians) Unity (ONE) in Christ as a Body (ONE) and as the Children (One) of God. The Church is ONE (Body) in Christ. The Church is His BODY (One)…THERE ARE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE CHURCH!!

Christ is the Head of the Church. The Husband is the Head of the Wife. The Man is the Head in the Family. The Church is subject to Christ. The Wife is subject to the Husband. (See EPHESIANS 5: 22 – 24) (1 Peter 3: 1-8)

The Man is the Glory of GOD. The Woman is the Glory of MAN. The Woman is FROM the MAN. The Woman was Created FOR the MAN. (See 1 CORINTHIANS 11: 7 – 9)

The Woman must LEARN IN SILENCE with ALL SUBJECTION. The Woman MUST NOT TEACH in the Church. The Woman MUST NOT HAVE AUTHORITY over the Man, BUT TO BE IN SILENCE. The Man (ADAM) was FIRST CREATED, then Eve. The Man(ADAM) was NOT DECEIVED, but the Woman BEING DECEIVED WAS IN THE TRANSGRESSION. (See 1 TIMOTHY 2: 11 – 14)

God PUNISHED Adam BECAUSE HE(Adam) LISTENED TO THE VOICE OF HIS WIFE (Eve) and DISOBEYED HIS(GOD) COMMANDMENT. (See GENESIS 3: 17) — This is because GOD gave the commandment to ADAM, not Eve. In fact, GOD created Eve after HE(GOD) had given the commandment to ADAM. Eve was CREATED TO HELP ADAM so they could both serve and obey GOD together. So ADAM was supposed to COMMAND, INSTRUCT AND TEACH His Wife(Eve), while His Wife (Eve) was supposed to LEARN IN SILENCE from ADAM with all subjection. (See GENESIS 2: 15 – 24)

“ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, and is profitable for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in RIGHTEOUSNESS: That the man of God may be PERFECT, thoroughly furnished unto all GOOD WORKS.” (2 TIMOTHY 3: 16 – 17)…..So don’t think you are wiser than the Holy Spirit who wrote the Scriptures!

There are women who are gifted to teach. They must teach and share the Gospel with unbelievers in their communities, other women and children. They can have Bible Studies and teach other women and children in their communities. Aquila and Priscilla expounded the way of God more perfectly to Apollos in in a home setting (Acts 18:26). WOMEN CANNOT AND MUST NOT TEACH OR INSTRUCT IN THE CHURCH (General Congregation). THIS ROLE IS FOR THE LEADERS/ELDERS AND THEY ARE MEN!

There is no basis for thinking anything other than God has upheld this in His design right from Creation.

How can a woman be an Elder when an Elder has to be a One-Woman Man? This doesn’t seem to make any sense to those who have deliberately decided to ignore this simple instruction by God in Scripture! (1 Timothy 2)

A lot of professing ‘Christians’ including some ‘Pastors’ are deliberately attacking Scriptures to suit their selfish desires and ambitions!

If a Woman is leading, preaching and teaching in your Church (The General Congregation) and you are a Man and can’t rebuke her or the Leadership of the Church, leave the Church!

If your Pastor has made his wife a ‘Pastor’ to help control the affairs of the church, IT IS WRONG! If you can’t rebuke them, leave the church!

You can’t accept the teachings of The Great Apostle Paul in Philippians and reject his teachings in 1 Corinthians 11, Ephesians 5 and 1 Timothy 2.

GOD IS NOT MOCKED! No Man or Woman is wiser than God and you are not above the Word of God!

A lot of Women are deceived by the Devil directly or indirectly through some Men, and these Women HAVE MADE THEMSELVES ‘MEN’ in these ‘Churches’…They teach people to be rebellious against God and His Word!

NOTE: GOD is a ‘He’…JESUS is a ‘He’…The HOLY SPIRIT is a ‘He’…..All according to Scriptures…..PRONOUNS matter in Bible Teaching!

Because of “Money” and “Papa” and “Mummy” and “Father” and “Daddy”, people are disobeying God and His Word, and not Following the LORD JESUS!

They are perfecting holiness in the FEAR OF MEN instead of the FEAR OF GOD!

FEAR GOD and OBEY HIM! That is the WHOLE DUTY of Man. (See ECCL 12: 13)

The Grace of God doesn’t encourage you to disobey God! The Grace of God doesn’t negate the Fear of God!

There are no Female Shepherds in the Church or Among God’s people. (Check the Bible)

I see women called Apostles, Bishops, Pastors, Evangelists, Archbishops, etc…IT IS WRONG…Humble yourselves before God!

Sharing the Gospel doesn’t necessarily make you an Evangelist! No #PROPHETESS led God’s people! (Check the Bible)

There is no woman who wrote a Book of the Bible or an Epistle of the Bible, either in the Old Testament or the New Testament. THERE IS NO WOMAN AMONG THE APOSTLES (The replacement of Judas was also a Man). There is no woman in the Old Testament with an on-going prophetic ministry (There are occasions where God used a woman to speak in the Old Testament). There is no woman in the New Testament with an on-going prophetic Ministry (The four daughters of Philip did prophesy. It doesn’t mean they had a prophetic ministry to lead the Church).

#CONCLUSION: Scripture DOES NOT ALLOW for Women Leadership or Eldership. If Scripture does not allow it, GOD DOES NOT ALLOW IT (From Genesis to Revelation). A WOMAN MUST NOT AND CANNOT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN BOTH IN THE CHURCH AND IN THE FAMILY!

Study the Word of God well. Preach the Truth and Defend the Truth!

There are NO COWARDS HERE!

Sola Scriptura – By Scripture Alone!

Shalom!
