Women in church office?




It could not be clearer! In I. Timothy 2:12 we read, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” The authoritative word of God excludes female teachers, indeed women from all offices. Based on the creation order Paul by inspiration states that women are NOT to be pastor-teachers. His words are not chauvinistic, because women have other valuable roles, and not just for the first century as his argument is from creation.

If women do take office they are:

  • not called lawfully
  • usurping authority
  • sinning against Christ
  • and if you sit under a woman pastor or deaconess you are guilty by association!
