Women preachers?

My Love one is on his death bed but I can not tell him about Jesus because I am a woman? Does this make any sense? why or why not. Personally I disagree

  • Telling him about Jesus doesn't make you a preacher. I say go for it. But yes I do believe that in general woman are not allowed to lead a church or teach men. Women are to teach other women and support their men.

  • No way that doesn't make you a preacher. Psalms 68:11 says that the women would be a large part of the army that's speaking God's word.

  • That makes you a minister, and we are called to be ministers of the GOOD NEWS.

    It is speaking about being 'ordained pastors'. That I don't believe is the place for women. I have to agree to disagree with my sister as she is an ordained minister.

  • Telling someone about Jesus doesn't make you a "Preacher" As Christians, we are all to share what Christ has done for us & share with others the truth of His salvation. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that women are not to be preachers, or church leaders. There were several women preachers & church leaders written about in the Bible. It is perfectly permissible for a women to be a preacher, church pastor or any other position in the church that God has called her to.

  • I have no problem with women preachers. I have a cousin who is a minister. She and her husband each have a church.
    I wish the Catholic church would wise up and start ordaining women.

  • You can tell him about Jesus.. Mary Magdelene was the FIRST person to tell that Jesus is alive!
    Many of my friends are preachers for God... the bible says this: Mark 16:15
    And He said to them, " Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

    He was addressing the disciples and not just the 12
