6 Reasons why women shouldn’t be pastor or preachers

6 Reasons why women cannot be church leaders, pastor, or preacher

1. Only men were tasked to preach and lead in the New Testament

There are no records in the Bible that Jesus appointed a woman to be an apostle, though they were also essential in the early church, as they are still today (Luke 8:1-3).

Likewise, it was exclusively men who were evangelists and church leaders. Although Mary and Magdalene first brought the good news, nothing in the Bible identifies them as pastors or preachers.

1 Timothy 2:11–12
“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.”

The early church leaders were men

  1. Jesus Christ
  2. John the Baptist
  3. Peter (Simon Peter)
  4. Paul (Saul of Tarsus)
  5. John the Apostle
  6. James (James the Just)
  7. Stephen

Great women of the Bible

In ancient Israel and other cultures, women were generally looked down upon. In different cultures, women were mere commodities, along with oppressive patriarchy in East and West.

Mary Magdalene
Mary, Mother of Jesus

Women were critical in spreading the Gospel. In the Old Testament, God tasked certain women to save His people. Saying that only men can lead and preach does not discount women’s critical role in supporting the pastor and congregation.

The Bible does not prohibit women’s leadership in a civil society. However, becoming the head of the church or the nuclear family is not for women.

2. To let women lead church isn’t God’s design

Modern society has “feminized” the pastor’s office, according to the Dean of Theology at ACU, Voddie Burcham. Coupled with a new trend of gender equality, this is what Satan aims for.

In “Luciferian gender equality,” there is no distinction of roles between male and female, which is precisely why the devil is confusing kids with gender dysphoria and the church with women pastors.

Ultimately, the enemy aims to dilute the role of men and label it “toxic masculinity” to defame Biblical patriarchy as evil—and so is God, who first created man and designated the father, not the mother, to be a “responsible head” of the family.

1 Timothy 3:1-2:
The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he* desires a noble task. Therefore, an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,* sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach…*

[* Even if women can teach, the verse doesn’t explicitly mention women as overseers; it uses masculine language (“he“) and not a “they” and describes him as a husband.]

3. Female preachers are endangering the Gospel

Men historically dominated the pulpit, many of whom have been the face of deception and falsehood. However, the recent meteoric rise of women preachers has not only endangered the true Gospel but created a new kind of Christianity devoid of the one true Christ.

Prominent Bible Teacher John MacArthur openly opposed women from preaching and interpreting doctrines. He said, “God’s standards are clear: The leadership role is reserved for men.

He rebuked, in particular, Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer, and Paula White for heresy and perpetuating Moralistic Theistic Deism along with the false promise of the prosperity gospel. The rest, like them, are champions of LGBTQ rights who nod at “holy gay union.”

Most popular “women preachers” are associated with false doctrines:

Aimee Semple McPherson
Anne Hutchinson
Beth Moore
Elena G. White
Joyce Meyer
Kay Warren
Mary Baker Eddy
Nadia Bolz-Weber
Paula White
Sarah Jakes Roberts
Victoria Osteen

Female pastors have also gained support from the magazine Christianity Today (CT), which joined the bandwagon of wokeness by supporting Black Lives Matter, which Christians should not support. They referred Beth Moore and Kay Warren as “notable women in Christian leadership positions.”

At the height of the BLM protest, CT magazine rebuked ‘silent churches’ through an article that said, “Portland is still protesting; where is the church?” along with editorials that support the group and its cause. [1, 2]

4. Women are more dangerously far-left than men

In 2021, approximately 44% of younger women are liberal compared to 25% of younger men, according to data analyzed by the Survey Center on American Life. The rise of liberalism among young women has marched apace with the increase of women identifying as LGBTQ. [The Hill]

In 1999, 14% of senior women were liberal. By 2023, this rose to 25%. In contrast to women, men’s self-identification as politically liberal has remained relatively stable with a slight increase. 1

The rise of left-liberal feminists

In recent years, we have also seen the rise of neo-feminists who advocate for anti-Christian laws. Incidentally, 89% of liberals who are atheists identify as a Democrat, according to Pew statistics.

For example, Phyllis Schlafly is best known among these women for her fight against the Equal Rights Amendment that helped outlaw gender discrimination.

In 2019, Rev. Gretta Vosper, an outspoken atheist of the West Hill United Church in Toronto, did NOT believe Jesus was the son of God. She is a woman pastor, pro-LGBTQ, whose church affirms and celebrates same-sex marriage. Vosper is but one of the many so-called female pastors and preachers who endanger the true Gospel.

In LGBTQ Pride parades, women cheer and walk along the gay meant to support them. Transgender Dylan Mulvaney, whose Bud Light controversy cost Bud Light to lose billions of market value, has mostly women cheering for him. About 90-95% of his fans on social media are women or have women handlers.

Social justice activism ties them together. We see that in women preachers like Kay Warren, Beth Moore, and the wayward ECLA who ordained transgender pastors, a gay Lutheran Bishop.

In Western Europe and Canada, young women are more left-wing than men. In America, the rise of female social activists is leading to the destruction of nuclear families. [Black Lives Matters]

5. Women are more impulsive and less objective than men

Objectivity is critical in making decisions. This is why men are mostly elected or appointed top executives, though few women share similar traits on the extreme.

Women are also impulsive. For example, most of them make unplanned purchases more than men. They are more driven emotionally, which can affect decision-making.

According to a study, “Women have higher levels of impulse buying in comparison to men.” Of course, the liberal mainstream media are quick to debunk it by saying men are equally if not more, impulsive. 2

In the car insurance industry, women usually have higher premiums because data show they are more impulsive and less able to concentrate while driving. 3

In 2021, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that men cause an average of 6.1 million accidents per year in the US, and women are behind at 4.4 million casualties. However, 62% of drivers are men, which means that women cause slightly more accidents per capita than men.

6. Female activists led the erosion of Christian values

Over the last thirty years, a string of powerful female lawmakers like Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi have shaped California’s political landscape, along with their male left liberal counterpart, Gavin Newsom. He was elected in 2019, the year before everything went spiraling down in the state. These women have widely supported his “progressive policies.”

The point is that perhaps women were forbidden to preach and lead the church because they easily be persuaded, as we saw first in the Garden of Eden. In the United States, far-left liberal women take the lead in supporting anti-Bible stance.

  • Female politicians like Nancy Pelosi push laws to protect against abortion. [PBS]
  • Female activist Madalyn Murray O’Hair was responsible for banning Christian prayers in schools.
  • Female professors promote liberal ideologies such as the woke Critical Race Theory (CRT), a demonic doctrine. [David Brown]
  • Lutheran transgender pastors are the prime movers of same-sex marriage that are acceptable in woke churches today. [ECLA]
  • Most of the liberal professors in universities are females who are militant, anti-conservative, and anti-Christian.
  • Female social activists, such as the founders of Black Lives Matter, are leading to the destruction of nuclear families and normative society.
  • Far-left liberal ideology is at war with the scriptures. Young women are more left-wing liberals than men, a study reveals.

The bottom line is that women are equally valuable in God’s eyes and critical to spreading the Gospel—but leadership and preaching are tasked to men. The order of creation has universal application in the family (Ephesians 5:22–33) and the church.

1 Timothy 2:11–14
“Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man; instead, she remains quiet.

Adam was formed first, then Eve; Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.”
