|Why Men Lead In Churches. by Adakintroy2: 9:05am On Mar 08, 2020|
The modern day debate oof who among the sex is superior is almost I'll inform. I think there are those among us who are deliberately.pushing this angles to cause tension and generate needless conversations. A man and a woman should simple be regarded as equals not in a competitive sense but in a sense such as separate equal half making up a whole.
That's reasoned, there will naturally be one half more needull in a particular area as against the other. For instance daylight is more usefull when considering work and other human activities and night more suitable for rest. But that is not to say one cannot do work in the night or sleep in the day. We just argue comparative one is more suitable for a defined event.
That's said in the courses of the bible, men who took on the challenge of establishing the good examples were men more suited. not just men of ordinary feats but extraordinary.They were men who were enslaved by difficult circumstances that ordinarily would break the average man. The reality of biblical times is that men lived there lifes in extreme circumstances. Rulers or king were more or less tyrants and we're absolute in there decision making. Wars were common practising. Raiding and taking kingdom or making slaves out of men were also commonly approved.
That said, those who were then sent were men eager and intended ready for this task. It was no ordinary feat or take on. Take for instance moses. The palace boy. Later stripped of all his titles and trust into the wilderness to fend for himslef. Think of what was going through his mind after loosing all the advantage of a prince. Having to deal with the harsh conditions of the desert .He too was later send to confront the tyrant pahroah in his own kingdom. Think of the courage needed to pull that off.
Think of Elisha the prophets who was a common fugitive in his day. How often he was chase by jazebel and how often he spent his days in the desert. How God would sent him back to the palace to confront AHab the king. Most times he was found in cave weeping and crying to God. " am I the only propher left in isreal" this most be understood as real tears consistent with " breaking points."
commonly, prophets were slaughtered Many thrown in jail. Micah the son of Imlah spoke against king jehoshaphat return from battle and for that he was thrown into jail. Daniel was thrown into the Lions den for upholding the "GOD STAUES" in prayers. Shedrach and his brother into the fire. Those were the ones we can readily point to.
In the case of the deciples, many of them were imprisoned first stoned and even set on fire for the gospel sake. Paul wrote in 2-conth 11:25, How he too was beaten, stoned suffers hunger and shipwrecks all for the gospel sake. These were not imaginations. They were real events as far as the bible was concern.
If this were the establish case. Do we really think a woman can take on this kind of task and win with God. Its not enough for draw narratives form modern day equality push as regards socio cultural alignings. Little measure of biological,differencial may account for much in the final analysis when making distinction. No prophet was happy God choose him to suffer this faith. The simple truth about fragments of events that bring about the wholeness of the bible is that it is filed or characterized by horrors to which women may want nothing of.
I put it this way because its one thing for modern women to see the gospel and leadership in the light of the new world of equality and balance. But it's another to sense it from the dimension of history taking into account wholeNess of these reality. If this is the establish rule, it only follows that men has earn the express permission to preserved his ways subseqently.
That's not say when cannot not participate. Far in it. But men were ordain first in suffering and punishment. That is the beginning that determines everything to a great extent.
