Q. What is up with so many women becoming pastors? Is this out of line with scriptures?A. “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being quite deceived, fell into trangression.” 1 Timothy 2:12-14 NASB The King James version uses the word ‘usurp’. Women should not usurp authority over a man. God has set up an AUTHORITY structure. The woman is not to have authority over the man in the church context. But this does not extend to the political/economic world. In the Old Testament, Deborah was judge in Israel over men. These women have gone against the very Word of God that they are speaking from. They are arrogantly disobeying God’s Word and are not operating in the will of God. Many of these ‘pastors’, whom I know personally, have driven their husbands away from home. The end result – divorce court. Anyway, this is another topic that I will deal with later.
