Most “self-identified” Christians know very little about the doctrine of predestination and what the Scripture teaches on it. For those with ears to hear, Professor Gordon Clark’s lecture provides a survey of what the Old Testament says about predestination.

Does the Bible Forbid Ordination of Women? By Gordon H. Clark

http://gordonhclark.reformed.info/does-the-bible-forbid-ordination-of-women-by-gordon-h-clark/

Professor Gordon Clark’s article refutes the current arguments for women pastors and church officials. Clark writes, “If we accept Scripture as our norm, it is forbidden to seize one verse and misinterpret it to the detriment of other explicit passages. The more obscure must always be understood in the light of what is clear and indisputable. … In the New Testament there is no authority for or example of a woman elder or minister. And we are bound by the Scriptures, the infallible and only rule of church government. We dare not add, subtract, or alter.”

Nearly 8 Out of 10 Americans Accept Women Ministers

By Jerry A. Kane

According to a newly released survey by the Barna Group, 79 percent of Americans are comfortable with a female priest or pastor, but evangelicals remain largely uncomfortable with the idea.

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can face anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman

According to Scripture, women should learn in silence, keep quiet, and be subject to the man and not teach or usurp authority over him. The reasons for this are that God created Adam first and Eve was created from Adam. Apart from God’s established created order, it was Eve who was deceived by Satan, not Adam. She was the one beguiled and believed Satan’s word over God’s, which led to man’s fall and sin entering the world (1 Timothy 2:11-14).

According to Scripture, only men should be in positions of spiritual teaching authority in the church. Women can teach other women and teach children, but they are restricted from having spiritual authority over men and from serving as pastors to men.

The question all self-identified Christians should answer is what the underlying authority for their faith is. Is it a Magisterium, an anointed Governing Body, a denomination’s doctrine, a Prophet/President, a charismatic preacher, or the Scripture? In other words, who or what determines your Christian theology.

Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him

As if increase of appetite had grown

By what it fed on, and yet, within a month—

Let me not think on ’t. Frailty, thy name is woman!

—Shakespeare, Hamlet: Act 1, Scene 2, lines 143-147
