|Bible Question (short): Pt.2 A Female Oversee|
Question (full): Part 2
Is Jesus not the example we are suppose to follow?? Was He the type of man that went with the flow of things, the type of Guy that followed tradition?? The day before he picked his disciples, Jesus stayed up all night in prayer with the Father, the next day He went out nd picked twelve men. If there was ever a time for God to say it was OK to have a Female Overseer for His children, a female disciple would have gotten that point across. "Why do you think that out of twelve individuals, there wasn't one woman on that board??"
Lets go back to I Tim. 2:12. "Why do you think that Paul said what he said in this verse??" For two reasons actually, 1. God told him to. Take a good look at II Peter chp.1 verses 19-21, and note that these verses isn't so much referring to the Interpretation-of-Scripture, as it is the Origin-of-Scripture. The other reason can be found in v.13-14.
A careful look at Genesis would reveal a number of facts on this issue as well, like;
A. When God gave the law, He gave it to Man, not woman.
B. When God did give the law to Adam, Eve wasn't even on the set yet, it was before her time.
C. When Eve DID show up, woman was presented as a Helper-of-Man, not a Leader-of-Man. There is a difference.
Now here's the kicker. When man DID follow a woman's leading, Adam not only got himself into trouble, but he plunged the entire world into chaos. Society as we know it is a mad house. We have superseded morality with immorality. I believe Paul said it best when he said, "Because that, when they knew God they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darken. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and changed the image of the Incorruptible God, into an image made like to corruptible man; and to birds; and four-footed beast; and creeping things..."
It appears to me that we're following this example. God's creation has gotten to a point where we think we're smarter than the Creator. We can interpret His word better than He can. The bible is it's own best interpreter, not man.
Last question of the day. "According to II Tim. 3:16-17, what is the purpose of ALL scripture??" Is it not for Doctrine; for Reproof; for CORRECTION; for Instruction in Righteousness, that the man of God-universal term meaning both men and women-may be complete and thoroughly equipped for every good work??
There are a number of biblical principles, as well as examples, indicating that a woman should not be an Overseer. Both Scripture and Tradition tends to point this out, so why isn't it being practiced today??
My prayers will be with you for Spiritual Wisdom in all areas, and I ask the same from you; and my apologies to you if I've offended you in the manner of which I've stressed a couple of points.
