Here is another short take Christian worldview with David.

We retitled last week program why Rick Warren ordaining three female pastors assures evangelicalism's doom. No doubt many other evangelical churches will now follow suit. This weekend will finish laying the foundation for the differing roles got established for men and women in the church in the home then pastor Travis Allen of Grace Church in Greeley, Colorado will join us to answer what roles women can serve in the church and what leads to Christian leaders compromising on the clear historic and orthodox teaching of Scripture were not going to have time to review what we covered last week. So if you missed it, be sure to go to our website the Christian were going to start, we left off last week and then get to the interview with pastor Travis Allen first Corinthians 14. Now Paul is writing to the Corinthians, their church and he says when you assemble as a church.

Each one is a Psalm as a teaching is a revelation as a tongue has an interpretation woke in the tongues right now. Verse 34. It says about women in the church. The women are to keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves just as the law also says if they desire to learn anything, let them ask your own husbands at home for it is improper for a woman to speak in church, was it from you with the word of God first went forth, or has it come to you only other words, don't make this up, you didn't design the word of God the Word of God comes from God. It's his word talks about women speaking in church a means woman preaching or teaching over men in church. There are roles for women to teach other women in church or teach children church but not men not to exercise authority over men.

So what we make of this will first of all, women as pastors and teachers of men has nothing to do with the worth of a woman, or the capability of a woman in comparison to men. It's also not a male versus female issue, but it's rather, as Moeller said it's a biblical interpretation or authority issue mean there are some men out there that are in favor of women becoming pastors and churches, and there are some women I'm sure some are listening today who are agreeing with everything that's being read from Scripture. Some women are against it. This is not a male versus female issue.

It has everything to do with what God has clearly stated in his word. It's the same old issue from the very beginning of time when Satan tempted Eve in the in the garden has God really said that's really what's going on here.

God has really said that men should be pastors and churches and leaders in the home. That's what God is really said enough people like Rick Warren and many others are challenging, that it really is the word of God versus the word of man, God established roles for each gender in the home and the church so that they would function in an orderly and God honoring way now. No surprise that on the website. Got which is a website that answers people's questions about Christianity and other religious topics.

There been something like over 500,000 questions asked on this website and you want the number one question is the number one question of all the questions is what does the Bible say about women pastors, but the number one question on got questions that are of all the hundreds of thousands of questions goes right back to Genesis 3, where God says to Eve, your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you right there from the very beginning. The consequence of their sin was that there be a desire for a wife to rule over her husband and return the husband would often rule in a way that was over authoritarian the conflict from the very beginnings the number one question on got so in their answer to this question.

The answer some of the common challenges to the issue of men only being pastors of churches in a holding authority in the church in the home and the first one is just the why question why shouldn't women teach in the church at warming art men and women the same. Why shouldn't they teach. Here's their answer. Why should women not teach or have authority over men because Adam was created first, then Eve and Adam was not the one deceived. It was the woman who was deceived. Verse 13 through 14, God created Adam first, and then created you to be a helper for Adam. The order of creation has universal application in the family and in the church so this is in a cultural contextual issue of the day that women were educated at the time and now they are and so we live in a different time and Paul was writing to Timothy at an age where it's very different from today and now were more sophisticated were advanced we've evolved and therefore women can be pastors and teachers of men in churches that is not at all what the interpretation, the proper grammatical historical interpretation of Scripture is in this passage Paul takes it not back to the context of that day in Ephesus, but he goes right back to the very beginning of time that God created Adam first, and then even the second reason is that he was the one who is tempted and fell into transgression.

First, that is the basis that God gives for why men only should be leaders in the church in the home. This is been a short take from the Christian worldview with David.
