Unbiblical Headship Doctrine:

[Pope orders study of women's role in early Church, cheering equality campaigners] "Pope Francis has set up a commission to study the role of women deacons in early Christianity, the Vatican said on Tuesday, raising hopes among equality campaigners that women could one day have a far greater say in the Roman Catholic Church.

The Church bans women from all but a few decision-making roles and the pope and his predecessors have ruled out allowing them to become priests. But advocates said Francis's move might make it easier for a future pope to study whether to allow that.

Deacons, like priests, are ordained ministers, and, as in the priesthood, they must be men. They cannot celebrate Mass but they are allowed to preach and teach in the name of the Church and to baptize and conduct wake and funeral services.

The Church barred women from becoming deacons centuries ago..." Full text: Pope orders study of women's role in early Church, cheering equality campaigners Gen. 2:19, 20; 3:16, Col. 3:10

I believe the Roman Catholic church parted ways with Jesus and true believers many centuries ago. The RCC leaders had many Christians murdered during the infamous inquisitions of the dark ages.

That's why the ages were dark. They kept the word of God from people.

[Woman] Silence...

Wrong. Look at the original language. I suffer not that woman to teach [trying to bring in doctrine of Diana] (1 Ti 2:12).

Works out nicely for you thought.

My church actually does not permit women to lead in the children's studies--losing half of your gifts.

...[I]t's only the widowed women who have it made.

Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications, and prayers night and day [1 Tim. 5:5].

"Now this widow is “a widow indeed”—a real widow. She is “desolate,” that is, she is in need. She is a godly woman, and she prays. She not only prays for the church and the pastor, but she prays for herself and for her need. She has a right to do that. And I want to say that God uses us to help answer such prayers. He makes it clear that when we find a widow like this we are to help her. It is quite lovely when we do things God’s way."

But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth [1 Tim. 5:6].

"But if you go over to a widow’s house and find that she is having a cocktail party, I would say that she is not the widow to help. It does not matter how prominent her son, or her sister, or her brother might be in the church, she is not to be helped." McGee, J. V. (1991).

Since she has no one else, she pleads with God as her only hope.

He needs him [Adam] to fall…This doesn't try to account for the role of women (apologies to women), specifically of Eve.

She came from him—he was her source (1 Cor. 11:3; Eph. 5:23). Headship is not biblical.

Adam and Eve needed to be redeemed (Rom. 3:25, 26). One is one not two (Matt. 19:6).

From theology club.

Derf View Post
My point in that thread was to ask the question--was there a reason God gave Adam and Eve such a simple law: Don't eat of that one tree? Seemingly simple to uphold and certainly proven simple to break.

Sin did not originate with God (Jas 1:17).  For anyone who would blame him come the time, it won't fly.

Are you opposed to the idea that women should be under headship of their husbands?

It's not biblical--and I have no dog in this fight (1 Co 7:1, 8, 32–35).

I see that you are saying that Eve needed to be redeemed (which I believe, too) but are women handled differently? 1 Tim 2:15.



Dreams & Visions: Natan

If the two-become-one thing applies in any way, here, it would seem that it would make Eve guilty even if she didn't sin.

She did sin (2 Cor. 11:3).  

1 Cor 7:14...If a woman could be made "holy" by her one-ness with a man in redemption...

That doesn't always happen (1 Co 7:15).  Paul was a widower or his wife abandoned him when he became a believer (not too uncommon by the way).

'Til Faith Do Us Part by Naomi Schaefer Riley

[2 Cor. 11:3] That verse doesn't say she sinned. It says she was deceived.

She yielded to temptation and sinned (Ge 3:6, 2 Cor. 11:3). This isn't rocket science.

A spouse that leaves is handled differently...

How are they handled? They're not there.

...A daughter that leaves may also be handled differently...

Neither mommy nor daddy saves an individual. One must come to the kingdom on his own.

"The search (7:16–23): The Lord gives Joshua specific instructions for determining who the guilty person is.

(1) The method (7:16–17): The Lord points out the tribe to which the guilty person belongs; then he points out the clan, then the family, and finally the person himself.

(2) The man (7:18–23): Achan is found to be the guilty person.

f. The stoning (7:24–26): Achan and his guilty family members are stoned and their bodies burned." Willmington, H. L. (1999). The Outline Bible (Jos 7:16–26). Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers.

[She yielded to temptation and sinned (Ge 3:6, 2 Cor. 11:3).] Maybe.

Something about, "she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat" that isn't clear? Ge 3:6

To say she sinned based on those verses is putting words into the scriptures.

I have not added, "she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat". Ge 3:6

God gave Adam instruction about the tree of knowledge of good and evil prior to God creating Eve.

Wrong.  She was in him.  They named the animals (Gen. 2:19, 20; Col. 3:10).

If you are saying that Eve sinned, then you are saying that God's commands to Adam apply equally to Eve.

God created ἄνθρωπος [humankind (man and woman)]. Ge 1:27  

We don't know for sure.

You don't know for sure (2 Ti 2:15).

It seems very likely that Adam was a little overzealous in protecting Eve, so that he may have added to the commandment of God the part about not even touching the tree.

If he was so protective of her then why did he stand by allowing her to sin? She added to scripture (Ge 3:3).

Thus it is at least some evidence that Adam delivered the command to Eve.

God gave them (ἄνθρωπος [humankind]) the command (Ge 2:17).

So if God never told Eve not to eat of the tree, is it sin if she disobeyed her husband?

She disobeyed God.  Adam did the same (Ge 3:6).

...[Y]ou must agree with at least some aspect of Adam's headship over Eve even before the transgression.

Women aren't here to make you a sandwich.

"Woman...Make me a sandwich." ~ Fox Mulder

Meaning that headship of some sort is certainly biblical...

If you can sell that to your honey, knock yourself out.

...and part of God's "very good" creation (before the fall).

Very good for you. Not so very good for her.

[Unbelievers leaving marriage] They are allowed to go, and they aren't considered "holy", I suppose.

Allowed? If they're leaving their marriage, they aren't obeying God (Matt. 19:3–9). The abandoned believing spouse is given peace. Ezek. 16:8–14, 1 Co 7:15

[Wicked spouse, children, etc.] I disagree on your second point--no one comes to the kingdom on his own...

Mt 7:14

"...[T]hose children of Achan, not to mention the sheep and oxen and donkeys, were not guilty of Achan's trespass, were they?

They wanted daddy's money.

Daddy's Money ~ Ricochet

"You were, [there] too, I guess. So you named the animals?"

I wasn't there.

"...in that sense, you acknowledge Adam's headship."

Strawman Eph 4:14

[God gave them (ἄνθρωπος [humankind]) the command (Ge 2:17).] Only if you acknowledge that what applies to Adam then applies to the whole human race.

It applied to them.  They were not to eat the apple. You may eat all the apples you'd like.

Once you acknowledge that, which you have, you acknowledge headship of some type.

Headship is not biblical (Gen. 2:19, 20; Col. 3:10).

I'm not Adam...

You're no Adam. You're fallen Adam (Rom. 5:12).

Adam might realistically be in a position to ask all women to make him a sandwich...

He's dead. You're soon to follow (Gen. 2:16, 17, 19; Rom 5:12–14).

...[T]he ability to demand a sandwich, as help in fulfilling the commands of God...

God did not command a husband to demand a sandwich from his wife. God commanded he love his wife (Eph. 5:25–33). She is his "companion" (Mal. 2:14)--“a helper comparable to him” (Gen. 2:18, 20).

Maybe that's why creation is not so very good anymore. We aren't willing to listen to authority...

You aren't her authority. She isn't your authority. Gen. 2:19, 20; Col. 3:10

God, father and mother, husband, king, boss, etc.

She has dominion over the cat (Gen. 1:28).

But you've given an excellent example of what that curious part of Eve's curse must mean [Gen 3:16] and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband...

He's fallen.

...he shall rule over thee...

Now you're living up to all you can be.

...[T]heir husbands exercise heavy handedness.

They do (Mal. 2:14, 15).

You seem to have a chip on your shoulder about this...

Eccl 7:9, Eph 4:14 I have no pony in this race, chicken in the parade, clown in this tent...

Paul does say "let him go", meaning "allow him to go".

He/she's gone (not unusual by the way).

I have an issue that's cropped up with my Church that is bothering me so I thought I would post and get a consensus of others thoughts on this. Apparently we have a guest speaker coming on a Thursday night for a "creative team night". She is a musician who came a while ago and sold CD's at our Church after service and it appears from the intro video that she's coming back to preach? She appears to be preaching anyway. Thoughts?

Headship is not biblical. Unfortunately, churches have handicapped themselves by 50% right off the bat by not allowing female preachers and teachers. It’s a little late in the day to correct all of that as the Lord is returning. Men will answer for their mistreatment of women (1 Pe 4:5). God loves women. His prophecy about them came true (Ge 3:16).

To say "headship is not biblical" is one such example of abuse.

Obviously nobody should pass out drunk anywhere. I myself have done that way too many times to count during my college days, never got raped. While we certainly should try to educate young people about this, we need to educate men that it's totally wrong to take advantage of a drunk person.
