by Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Blogging and Neglecting Your Family
Editor’s note: Yes, it seems like this is some sort of jealousy/territorial marking of turf Lori’s is doing here. About as subtle as a kitty I used to have that peed on all four outer corners of the house daily to let everyone know it was his house. Lori is doing exactly that with this piece. Only SHE and others like her should be allowed to blog. Pretty petty and transparent.
The problems I see with these women are that for starters, many times they are teaching men in their crowds. Women are specifically forbidden for teaching men. Secondly, God has given the responsibility of teaching younger women to older women for a reason. They have experience raising children and being married for a long time. Younger women do not since they usually have children in the home who should be their first priority.
On John Piper’s blog, a woman named Liz Wann wrote some strong words about being marinated in the Word and experiences in life before beginning any type of ministry to others, less there be a temptation to be puffed up with pride and begin living in sin.
When God speaks about older women in the Bible, He is speaking about those who have raised children. Older women should be those who have spent the “unknown and seemingly ordinary” days being “faithful in the mundane” of raising and disciplining children, being a help meet to their husband, and staying busy in the home. Younger women haven’t done this long enough and are still in the process of doing it.
