Bible says women cannot be preachers

Published 12:00 am Sunday, October 14, 2007

Today as I once again write, there are many churches that are using a new version of the Holy Bible. These new versions do no say the some, nor are they spiritually discerned and not the same as the old King James Bible. This bible is only learned by the Holy Spirit, which will teach you all things. The Bible is the inspired Word of God and man doesn’t have the authority to change it.

In 2 Timothy 3:16 “all scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” and in the 17th verse: “that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished in all good works.” Also in Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall not pass away.”

After Revelations was written in 90 A.D., can you tell me just when and in what book of the Bible you can find that the Word of God was changed to allow women to hold the office of pastor of a church, especially of God who calls each true preacher? I can’t seem to find it in my Bible from Genesis to Revelations.

In the 1900 years after Christ’s death, this was followed by most Protestant churches, and there wasn’t a woman preacher in any church, however no they the feeling that they change God’s word to suit the needs of some of their congregation.

Chiefly, they have changed God’s word in 1 Timothy 3:2 and Titus 1:6 to suit their wants.

The verse that I quote, Timothy 3:2 says “a bishop must then be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach.” Also in Timothy 2:12, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to unsurp authority over a man, but to be in silence.”

There are those who try to justify women preachers by using Joel 2:28 for now. They do not understand that we are in a “church age” and this passage of scripture plainly takes place in the “kingdom age.” There are others who will tell you that in Galatians 3:28 which says “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

They do not read the next verse, which says “And if ye be Christ’s then ye are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

We that are born again are saved, we have a home in heaven, we are all children of God, but we are not there yet. We are still in this body of flesh and will be there until we either die or area called out by Christ himself.

We all need to get back to the true word of God and not add to nor take away from his word, if you read in Revelation 22:18 “for I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book” and Revelations 22:19 “and if any man shall take away from the words of the prophecy of this book, God shall take away his part out of the book of life and out of the holy city, and from things that are written in this book.”

Please read and study the true Bible, the old King James Bible and get back to the truth.

I am not male who thinks I am superior to females, however if we are to live by the word of God. I also know that women are very important in the house of God, but according to his word, they are not qualified to preach. This isn’t my word, it is God’s.

Many churches would have failed if it hadn’t been for the devout women attending there, and I am very thankful for devout women. It was my mother who taught me about Christ, by teaching me at home.
