WOMEN’S ROLE IN GOD’S FAMILY
Silent Womenin the Church?
evening together mid 1980’s
ese thoughts that follow were written almost twenty years ago, as the ﬁrst Handful of Saints in this city were ﬁrst beginning to seek out Father’sHeart for what a Christian and a Church truly must be, according to HisOath and Word. Many of us had witnessed, from inside of “leadership” positions and not, the massive contradictions, hypocrisies, marketing and sales jobs, out and out evil sins and divisions “brushed under the rug” inboth religious institutions and “house churches,” which are generally nodiﬀerent and no better. Know that “GOD don’t make no junk” and that if HE is doing the Work then “the gates of Hell cannot prevail” as they doin those aforementioned environments. We were NOT interested in falling into the same traps and the same ways that have yielded such pathetic fruit over the years. HIS Church, by His Word, will crash down the walls of Hell itself, rather than “conform to the patterns of the world” and lose teens,and marriages, and perpetuate the Spiritual babyhood of so many men. AsIsaiah prophesied over the cursed and disobedient Israel of his day, “womenand children will rule over you” as I take away all of your Anointed and Gied men, and you will say “You have a cloak and are wealthy and a good businessman—you be our leader.” A sad commentary, and inﬁnitelyapplicable in our present day. We did NOT want any more of that nonsensethat wears Jesus’ Name, but contradicts everything about Him. Singing louder or a better “worship band” or “sermon” or “building” or “program” or “more informal where more people are allowed to talk” has NEVER solved the ROOT Issues of the Spiritual demise of most “groups” caused by leavenand lukewarmness and schisms and unBiblical hierarchies.
With the heart of not repeating the evil and leavened history of much of thelast 19 centuries, we will address a topic that needed to be addressed twenty years ago, as we were seeking to ﬁnd our footing in many areas of Life. One“topic”—“Woman’s Role in the Church”—has caused much consternationin many countries, we’ve noticed. Due in some places to a faulty “culture” that puts down women in general society (and is carried over improperlyinto God’s Culture), women are made to be “second class citizens” and a“caste system” robs them of their Rightful inheritance, and robs Jesus’ Body
