Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 1:6

1:6 From which - Love and a good conscience. Some are turned aside - An affectation of high and extensive knowledge sets a man at the greatest distance from faith, and all sense of divine things. To vain jangling - And of all vanities, none are more vain than dry, empty disputes on the things of God.

    I have woman in my church who peach and teach ,to said this all my church is woman ,two men . I think we have to use what GOD give us

    God using a woman does not mean she usurps authority over a man. God does have an order and provides a covering for the woman. Deborah was judge over the "sons of Israel." Does not a judge have authority? Does not a judge have authority to render sentencing and did not those who hear go into battle at the word given through Deborah by God? Don't presume to counsel God.

    Women are not supposed to preach, and those who misread and disagree are doing so to change the bible to suit their needs, please dont do that here, thats why you have people saying its ok to be a gay Christian, they are changing the bible to suit their personal needs

    Jesus always considered a woman to preach the good news . John 4.7 He even spoke the Samaritan woman on the will and ask a water to drink. Jesus told her He who drinks my living water will never be thirsty. Living water represents God's words that needs to be obeyed. Mary Magdalene was true apostle in Jesus she is a witness to his crucifixion and his resurrection. JESUS choose her to represent

    A woman cannot pastor. One of the biblical requirements for a pastor is to "be the husband of one wife." Also, in 1 Tim. 2:12, a woman is not to be in authority over a man. In Ephesians 5, wives are asked to submit to their husbands. This does not mean that we are not equal to men, but our roles are different and we are created to fulfill different roles than men. Hope this helps.

    As far as the debate over women teaching and preaching, I think we can safely say that decision's been made. Read the next chapter versus 12, 13 and 14..
