7/10/2005 ~ Why we Don't Have Women Preachers


Along with no denominations called for in the Bible,
~ there is also no mortal 2nd chance millenium.

The Bible also does not instruct us to have women preachers.
Churches with women preachers do not properly follow the gospel.

~ Titus 2:9-12


- In the general assembly, mixed audiences,
-> men need to do the preaching.

It is not because women are inferior,
Not because they know the Bible better or less,
Not because the are less capable.

~ Galatians 3:27-29


The same gospel is for all.

Above all, God placed man, not women, in a position of authority.
