Does God want ladies preaching when men are in the audience and pastoring His churches? According to the Bible, I would have to say no, he does not want this to be going on. I don't know all of his reasons, but I think His Word is clear. Read these verses and decide for yourself. I Corinthians 14:33-35 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home; for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. I Timothy 2:11-12 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
Do you have a life verse, or maybe a favorite verse? If so, share it with us. If not, study and find one. When I was asked as a young person to find one for myself, I thought it might be neat to have but would really be of no use to me. Now that I am passed the midway point of my life, there have been many times when I have simply went to my verse in my mind and the Lord has used it to help keep me on track. God says in His Word that His Word will not return void, it can and will make a difference if we allow it to. My verse in Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." I have not always been able to live it, but it always gives me a good target. That is what a life verse should do.

Are there hypocrites and Christians living in sin within the doors of true churches? Of course there is. Church is for the believer to have a closer relationship with God, and for the unbeliever to come to repentance. Just because there are believers, believers with bad testimonies, unbelievers, and unbelievers who claim to be believers in the church is not a valid reason to not attend church on a regular basis. It is definitely not an excuse that will hold up with God for not trusting Christ as Saviour.
