Silly Woman, Church Does Not Need You!

Silly Woman, Church Does Not Need You! August 13, 2018

From the archives of No Greater Joy ministry, one of the few undisappeared old posts by Michael Pearl. This mother of toddlers and pastor’s wife is asking how she can continue her church work while homeschooling and being a good Quiverfull helpmeet. Michael’s answer boils down to something like ‘Silly woman, church does not neet you!’ That church is a man’s business, not a womans.

Ha! Tell me another big old fib, Michael! I’ve yet to see a church that was not primarily run by women. I’m not talking about pastors, but the people that do all the nuts and bolts activities that keep the church running. It is primarily women, unsung, unregarded, unthanked doing all the heavy lifting of the day to day.

It is important to take care of your children when they are little and unable to care for themselves, but what is the harm in helping out in church, or anywhere else that fulfills you?
