Does a Bible permit a woman to preach? Short answer: No. Longer answer: Also no.
This is such a huge issue. It is wrong at its core, but there is also a nearly 100% correlation between denominations supporting women preachers and those supporting abortion, LGBTQX, denying essentials of the faith, etc.
He nails the evangelical church for being the next domino to fall to feminism.
“Weak men make everyone vulnerable to danger.” And feminism is all about making women strong and men weak. What a coincidence that the Leftist church “discovered” that women preachers were OK right at the time of the feminist revolution.
Powerful Gun Message From Relative of Americans Killed in Mexico – The Left wouldn’t protect you even if they could.
I say, fight for those guns, because these things are happening here in Mexico because people can’t protect themselves because by law they’re not allowed to own these guns and so since the government isn’t doing their job of protection in the way they should these cartels can just wreak havoc and the people are left defenseless and so I say, hold onto your guns, people.

TERF Wars: How Radical Lesbians Are Braver Than You Are — It is hard to imagine a more extreme ideological foe besides radical feminists, yet at least they have the
balls guts to say that men can’t be women. We should encourage them in this endeavor and then tell them about Jesus, how child-killing is wrong, etc.
Radical, leftwing ladies—the “feminazis” of old—are mostly progressives, pro-abortion, and against basically everything mainline conservatives believe in. But! They are risking life and limb, career and reputation, for one simple reason: they’re not willing to surrender their own identities as biological women.The pejorative term for these fearless females—I apologize for using it!—is TERF: trans-exclusionary radical feminists. Trans-lation: biological women who want to bar “transwomen” from traditionally female spaces.
. . .
Or take Camille Paglia, who is what my Grammy Hall would call a “real lesbian.” Camille, famous as the author of Sexual Personae, is an OG TERF—and was my cultural hero in college. As outraged younger (straight) feminists screamed at her for arguing that wasted girls at frat parties bore some responsibility for their actions, I sat rapt at several of her talks, in awe, vowing to temper my underage drinking. I didn’t succeed, of course—but Paglia never quit making heads explode. In 2017, she told the Weekly Standard “the cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible. Every single cell of the human body remains coded with one’s birth gender for life.” This year, students at the college where she’s been teaching for decades rioted to get her fired.
Yep. Exhibit A: Those too cowardly to call out the “trans” nonsense and affirm that there are still just two genders and that you can’t change them.
The Gay Greenhouse — Great post (and blog) about the feminized church. Hat tip: Danny
Just in case I’ve lost you, repentance here means the Church and Christian families need to repent of the whole dating/hookup culture. It means telling our children that courtship is for seeking romance and sexual fulfillment and children under God’s blessing in the covenant of marriage. And until someone is ready for that, they are not ready to ask any one out or accept such an invitation. Period. Full stop. Don’t start the car, if you’re not ready to drive.
Stop Dancing, Monkey: John Crist to Only Take a Two Month Break? So the “Christian” entertainment industry knew about this guy and said nothing? Typical. Pretty bad day for the phonies when Charisma magazine takes you down. Kudos to Pulpit & Pen for having this guy’s number already.
The details of Crist’s behavior aside, Charisma’s report details that plenty of Christian companies, record companies, promotion managers, and celebrities knew of Crist’s sinful and reckless sinful behavior. That’s a whole other story unto itself.
Study: 30 minutes of exercise per day can reduce risk of depression — Even if exercise didn’t help your appearance at all (though it surely does), there are still many reasons you should do it. My 84 yr. old Mom still does water aerobics 4-5 times a week. Unless you have a serious disability there are really no good excuses.
Fox is the only cable news station to report on ABC News allegedly spiking Epstein story – No surprise. The news organizations protect each other as loyal Democrats.
We’re gonna need a lot of millstones to clean this up . . .

Heidi and I watched the McArthur sermon. Loved it. Well worth the time.
It was great as a stand alone sermon, but even better how he showed all these wimpy “evangelicals” how it is done. Instead of falling all over himself apologizing for rightly dismissing Beth Moore, he just gave them an hour of scripture.

He also showed that the commands were for all the churches, and tied to the creation order, thereby removing the “cultural argument” excuse.
Yeah, the “Christian” Left likes to pretend that Jesus was just too bashful to go against the grain and have female apostles and elders. As I like to say, be an egalitarian! Because Ephesians 5 says Jesus and the church are mutually submissive or something . . .

Women can teach Sunday School, and Public School and even raise the children they have birthed, but (there’s always a but isn’t it?), they can’t preach a sermon in the hallowed sanctuaries of the local church. I’m sure the Pharisees that Christ battled against would be very proud of their 21st century counterparts. And we wring our hands and gnash our teeth analyzing why church attendance is declining in the good ole USA. After reading this post I’ve come to realize I’m not as conservative as I thought.
Hi – I’m not sure your logic is consistent. I realize it is easy to call your opponents “Pharisees” but you are begging the question and assuming that your view agrees with Jesus’ view. But that’s what we are discussing here. MacArthur was very specific about the biblical case — which, of course, is Jesus’ view — but the egalitarians rely on more question-begging and equivocations about how it would be bad not to let the women use their “gifts” when on our view the Holy Spirit would never give those gifts to women. Sure, some women can be good public speakers but it doesn’t mean they have the gift of preaching. In fact, thinking they can be preachers proves their doctrine is unsound!
So in this case, you’d be the Pharisee because you disagree with Jesus.
Re. why church attendance is declining, the Babylon Bee satire site just made a good point about that: https://babylonbee.com/news/church-that-believes-exactly-what-the-world-believes-unsure-why-everyone-leaving-the-church “Christian” Left churches are pro-abortion, pro-gay, anti-authority of the Bible, anti-Jesus is the only way to salvation, etc. People get that for free 24×7 in schools, media and entertainment. Why bother going to church to hear more of it?
