Encouraging Women to be Disobedient to Celebrate Mother's Day

By       (Page 4 of 4 pages)   1 comment

"We don't see enough positive examples of female leadership. In the early Pentecostal movement, it was not uncommon to see women preachers traveling across our nation planting churches and conducting evangelistic campaigns in roadside tents. Women preachers, including Aimee Semple MacPherson, Carrie Judd Montgomery and Myrtle Beall made a huge spiritual impact on their generation. Today, while there are significant numbers of women pastors and missionaries in Pentecostal groups, the most prominent Christian women featured in mainstream media are Bible teachers who reach women only." -- J. Lee Grady


Actually the most prominent Christian women in mainstream media are all false teachers. Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer and Paula White are not bastions of sound doctrine. This point however about the history of AG is often thrown out as a talking point but we need to realize that just because previous generations were disobedient does not mean we should also be so.

"Some Christians hate women. It's sad but true. Misogyny is alive and well, and sometimes it is even preached from pulpits. In one prominent evangelical church in El Salvador, the previous pastor often joked about women and trivialized adultery. It's no wonder domestic violence thrives in that country. Until some brave men have the guts to challenge the sexism of the "good ol' boy network," abuse will remain a problem among Christians. The church in Asia is blessed to have women like Naomi Dowdy and Haziel Minoza on the front lines. On this side of the world, I pray we will affirm and celebrate all women who have been called by God to lead." -- J. Lee Grady

Once again, Grady brings on the most extreme and absurd examples to try and prop up his unbiblical stance. Whatever happens in El Salvador is not relevant to this discussion. It certainly does not change what scripture says. I do not hate my sisters in Christ. I love them enough to tell them what the bible actually says. It is far easier to take Grady's position and appeal to our aggrieved sense of being wronged. No woman has been called to lead in the church Mr. Grady and you know that because the bible says so. We will celebrate Mother's day this coming week and we ought to remember all of those women who served admirably and faithfully in the church but stayed within the confines of scripture in doing so. If we truly love our sisters in Christ we should never be afraid of telling them what the bible actually says.
