Woman Should Not Work in the Church


Many people have taken 1 Corinthians 14:34 out of context. It states, "Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says." When it states a women should be silent in the church, it means that a woman should not chatter in church. This means they shouldn't babble in church. By taking this out of context it has caused the deception that woman should not do work or be pastors in the church.


Below are the names of some women that helped during national crisis or played a significant role in the ministry:

Deborah (a prophetess) - Judges 4-5

Miriam (a prophetess) - Exodus 15: 20-21

Esther (pleaded for the Jewish people) - Esther 3-4; 7-9

Huldah (a prophet) -2 King 22:14

Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Susanna ( traveled with Jesus provided financial support) - Luke 8: 1-3

Samaritan woman (she left and begin telling people about Jesus) - John 4:39

Phoebe (a deacon) - Romans 16:1

Prisca, Lydia (partners in the gospel) - Romans 16:3-5


Below are some Bible verses that show the deceitfulness of these acts:


Joel 2: 28,  "And afterward,  I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."


Acts 2: 17,  "In the last days, God says,  I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,  your young men will see visions,  your old men will dream dreams."
