QUESTIONS: ROLE OF WOMEN IN THE CHURCH
My Beloved Sister Elisha:
I am so grateful for your response
and your interest in Truth. We believe that you have a sincere interest in growing
in Truth and God. Your questions are valid and beg to be answered. Women and
men do have roles in the Church. As you know there are distinct roles for men
and women in the home so there should be a distinction in the Church. Jesus
Christ is the head of the Church through the Father with the Holy Spirit as our
Thus, Preachers should be very
careful as to the leadership positions of women in the Church. We do not come
to place women in a role of submission or to discriminate against women. However,
God created women to be the help-mate of the man. This role was ordained by God
not the FreedomJournal however many worldly notions like Women's Liberation
have come into he church.
Women and Men are Free in Christ.
Thus, Christian women are already Liberated. Also Christian women that have
Christian husbands should not worry about abuse and being placed in a
submissive position regarding their husband etc. I truly respect my wife. She
is a devout Christian woman. She follows her role as ordained by God the Father
and I follow my role. As long as we follow Christ there is no problem with the
distinction of male and female roles.
Now how can we get men to come to
church? First of all the Church has to be what God has ordained it to be. The
False Prophets must go. The greatest threat to Christianity is from within.
Thus the Church leadership is at fault and the members who allow and go along
with sin and things not pleasing to God.
You are correct; we need men in the
Church. I believe that many men will come to the Church and stay and walk with
God if the perception of the Church would change. The Church in order to
attract men has to remove the ungodly image. Thus the stereotype of a place for
Preachers to come and rob the people must and will change. It has to become a
Holy Place. The Holy church is the only church that can be a vehicle to render
us Peace and Paradise.
Thus we must read and study the Bible
like it is a saving force, which it is. We must stop abiding by foolish
tradition and follow God's law and not the laws of man that were created to
bilk people out of money.
My Beloved Sister I trust that I have answered some of your questions. Please feel free to raise any other concerns that you may have. I will also post the last part of this series that has been changed to "The World In The Church: The Role of Men and Women."
