  • 1 Timothy 2:11-14 (King James Version)

    11Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

    12But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

    13For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

    14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.


    is this what you was talking about

  • i guess...not really sure. i knew this verse, but i understood it to be in answer/instruction to the church this letter was written. the women were being mouthy and causing trouble, strife, etc.

  • 1Timothy 3:2 A pastor then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

    Women pastors can not be a husband of 1 wife.
    And all that Hinson posted.

    Agreed. A 1st century suggestion to a 1st century church living in 1st century time and culture. We are to glean the principle of the teaching, not place 1st century standards onto a 21st century woman.

  • Bloodbought and Henson are correct. I also checked in various versons, NIV, King James, etc. These are all full translations that go back to the original language. Not paraphrases that only go to older translations. There aren't any that say it differently.

  • November,
    If you start saying that things were only written for the 1st century where then does it stop. Perhaps salvation by faith alone was only for those in the 1st century? If the Bible says don't do it, then don't do it.

  • I disagree with the women not being pastors thing. You have to read the scripture in the correct light to understand. The cultural difference is a huge factor, the time period and why it was written for that particular church at that time.

    Interesting bb you may want to read that whole chpt.

    1It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. 2An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.4He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignit 5(but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), NASB
