We declare as sure as the Sun rises, sets and the Moon is seen that many women and men that claim to follow Christ heed not the role assigned by God. Brethren just why do so many women want to be Preachers? Is this a diabolical trick by Satan to cloud the minds of many women that share some righteousness? Is this another feminist plot to steal the righteous women from God and Christ? But can you steal the heart and mind of women that keep God first?
JUST WHY DO SO MANY WOMEN WANT TO CORRUPT SCRIPTURE AND TEACH THAT GOD HAS ORDAINED WOMEN AS PREACHERS AND THE HEAD OF A CHURCH? The Divine order assigned by God has maintained a definite role and position for man and woman. We (FreedomJournal) did not assign these roles, God did. Therefore we pray that women and their mostly weak counter-parts will obey God and fulfill their assigned roles and stop trying to re-write the Bible.

The Woman’s Role In The Bible
Part 8: Are Women Restricted in the Church Service?
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
My Beloved Sister in Christ Ingrid Greetings,
Peace be unto you. As the gifted have come also those not so wise have come to pervert and distort the true messages of the Gospel and Christ. Are there man-made Christians that follow not the Laws of God but those of man?
“There was once a man who followed Christ. To do this he heeded the Law as it was written in the Holy Bible. He did not corrupt this Law with the various other contemporary interpretations nor did he look to books of fiction and movies to teach him about God and Christ.
Meanwhile a man who thought he was hip and a man of the world followed the many flamboyant preachers who looked good and sounded good to the ears of the Goats. Both men died as all will die. Both will also get up from the grave. However the righteous are destined to receive the free gift of Paradise and the unrighteous are destined for another place.”
The wicked man in the previous statements comes to distort and confuse most of the Bible. The role of women has been a hot subject that bears much confusion. For example the following is one of the most confused scriptures in the Bible that some believe refers to duties and privileges of women in the Church.
1 Corinthians 14: 34-35. “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.”
“And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home; for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”
On one hand we have some who corrupt the Word claiming that women are severely restricted in the Church services (and they use these verses to justify this action). While others have gone even further into corruption and allow women preachers in the pulpit and have in many cases given the Church over to various women who are in many instances concubines and whores.
However in this scripture (1 Corinthians 14: 34-35) the writer Paul has been teaching about Spiritual Gifts beginning at Chapter 12. Therefore the subject here is not about the duties and privileges of women as many people seem to think. For example if women are to keep silent in the Church what about Acts 2: 38 where all are given the Holy Ghost when they are baptized.
So what is Paul trying to do at this place? He continues to try to restore order in the assembly when exercising Spiritual Gifts. The wives of the men in this Church (v. 34 says your women) are given these instructions. If this applied to the Church today it would also contradict Ephesians 5: 19. Verse 34 simply means that the wives of the gifted men were to remain silent while they (the men) performed Spiritual Gifts.
On a final note as to verse 35. The wives wished to know more about the Spiritual Gifts of their husbands. General information was obtained in the assembly. However this information would not be offered to them even at home.
So this scripture has a specific reference to the wives of the Brethren at Corinth and the exercise of their Spiritual Gifts. However there are distinctions among women and men in the Church. What are they? And why do so many women wish to have ultimate influence in the Church today? Was this also a desire of women during the times of the New Testament?
