    The Gospel is the Good News. It spread house to house in those early days. We have to read human history accounts too.

    I listen to a new Church plant in my town, for about a year. It's a tent outside in a park on a walking trail. I love that!

    They are preaching experiences. How their jobs are going, traffic challenges, interspersed with bits of testimony.

    I pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to fall on them, almost every day. If the Holy Spirit is not there__theyll be "childless".

    Now I get excited listening to Pastors Tony Evans and Paul Shepherd on the fm radio every day. I dare anyone to see Dwight Thompson (on YouTube) preaching, "What to do if you miss the Rapture". Look at the people in the room_NOT Dwight. People (no matter what sex) are going to reproduce Christ like those that were in the Upper Room on Pentecost.

    We just have to agree that Jesus is the Head of the Church and we go to church to meet Him there.

    The Day of Pentecost AFTER Jesus ascended to heaven, visually.

    About one hundred and twenty followers of Christ ( Acts 1:15) were present, including the Twelve Apostles (Matthias was Judas' replacement) ( Acts 1:13, 26), Jesus' mother Mary, other female disciples and his brothers ( Acts 1:14). JESUS had sisters. All filled with the Holy Spirit.

    Women were also identified to be among the 120. Mary the mother of Jesus is mentioned by name. The wives of the apostles were there ( 1 Cor. 9:5 "Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?"). Each of the wives was a devout believer in Christ. Part of the number of women would be those mentioned in Luke 8:1-3. "And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance." See also Matt. 27:55-56; Luke 23:49,55. We would expect that the sisters of Jesus were also believers by this time, as His brothers had become. Jesus was much more inclusive of the women than were the scribes and PHARISEES. The women had accompanied Him as He went through every city and village. The very first person to announce the Risen Christ was Mary Magdalene ( John 20:11-18).

    Mishael: taken from history recorded in Book of Acts; by the Disciples (Luke), and Jewish people. Paul had not been born again yet. After he was, he went to the wilderness to be taught by the Lord for 3 YEARS. Corinthians was not written down yet.

    Women spread the Gospel too; house to house. Outside of the synagogues in their courtyards. That's what disciples do_spread the Good News. WORD of mouth, house to house.

    Yes, Mishael,

    Men AND women were believers and of Jesus before Pentecost and gathered in the upper room with the twelve disciples.

    And if husbands and wives were there together, I wonder where all of their children were? Possibly with them in the Upper Room.

    They did not have "child care" then. Just something that makes me think.

    Yeah. Maybe some knew the Book of Joel ch 2 prophesy?

    Dear brother/sister

    You remember that puzzle thing we talked about some time ago? One puts verses together to obtain a picture of a teaching. The verses you mention must fit with verses like 1 Timothy 2:11-13 and 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 so to have a clear picture.The verses you mentioned can not in any case contradict the ones I mentioned. So what is the solution to this problem? The solution is that God uses male and female for His Own good purposes BUT IN THE RIGHT POSITION HE PLACES everybody, not how we think and like but how He thinks and likes.

    Finally if we want God to trust in us and use us in His work for people's salvation then we must submit ourselves to His written instructions, that is His Gospel. Otherwise we work in vain, and I think that is an important issue in our modern churches.

    God Bless You.

    Amen Giannis.

    Paul spoke plainly, and some of the scriptures presented in the post has nothing to do with a woman Pastoring a church or teaching.

    That doesn't mean a woman cannot minister in other ways or teach other yunger women conduct.

    The Lord written word has purpose and all scripture is inspired. and every facet of the body is vital.

    1 Corinthians 12:13-27.

    No one by the Spirit of God would say disregard any scripture and not scripture cancels out another.

    When one makes the claim that it is ok for a woman to preach or teach when we gather they should first explain 1 Timothy 2:11-13. and

    1 Corinthians 14:34-35. rather than disregard it.

    God bless.
