Women In Ministry - Exposing The Inconsistency

Released May 17, 2022 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Episode 97: Women In Ministry - Exposing The Inconsistency This is the episode where we really dive down into the nitty-gritty of the hot-button bible verses which are always the ones most strongly used to deny that women can serve in places of authority in the Church. 1 Timothy 2:11-12, when taken alone from the rest of the bible, would certainly seem to prohibit women from preaching, teaching and leading in the Kingdom. But that is the issue: we cannot take these verses alone, divorcing them from the rest of Scripture. This podcast will accomplish two things:   To empower those who have been intimidated and/or confused 1 Timothy 2:11-12 to begin to better understand them (more will be said on these verses in our next episode).   To expose the flagrant inconsistency of those who interpret 1 Timothy 2:11-12 with an unquestioned strictness while, at the same time, failing to apply that same interpretive lens to many other places in 1 Timothy and other parts of the New Testament. You will have to explain yourselves.   Listen carefully, take notes if you can, and let’s begin to take a deep look at the two verses that are used as the presumably solid foundation to forbid women from teaching, preaching and leading in God’s Kingdom.   More free video, audio and social media resources are available at TransformingTruth.org
