by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Reasons Women Should Be Able to Preach
Editor’s note: The words in italics are from an article printed in the UK and the regular font right after is Lori responding directly to those words. This was all so nasty, blaming and shaming, like much of Lori’s website, but this part about the periods and harassment is just vitriolic. The last time I checked being harassed is possibly a legal issue as well, so this advice to shut up about these things except to your girlfriends is so disrespectful!
“Most of us bleed for a few days a month, many of us have been subjected to harassment and stereotyping, some of us are teachers, careers, CEOs and mothers.” And this is why women should be preachers? Preachers are to teach the Word of God. If women want to talk about their periods or harassment, they can find girlfriends; they don’t need a pulpit.
“The Church is missing out on some incredibly talented, knowledgeable and experienced people when they don’t include women equally to men.” They must not care at all what the Bible’s commands are about this or they would understand. Women are not to teach nor have authority over men because men were created first as the leaders and women are more easily deceived. (1 Timothy 2:12-14). Women can use all of those talents in the home, raising children, homemaking, being a help meet, ministering to others (neighbors, friends, church members, and strangers).
