5 MINUTE VIDEO: Part 5 - Women In Church? [5 Fold Women]




Many hold up the 5 Fold Ministry as the pillar of strength that is essential for the growth and health of the Church.

But are these 5 gifts - Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers - exclusively for men? Or is there any evidence in the New Testament that women can also hold these positions in the Body of Christ?

Take 5 minutes and hold on to your hats as Keith looks at New Testament evidence for female Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists.

I came across a conversation where a woman asked a question that was concerning her- here is the question of hers. But what bothered me was some of the answers I seen -

"I'm sorry if this is a silly question, but this verse is bothering me. Can anyone explain 1 Tim 2:15 to me? What does it mean by saying "But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety." First, I don't understand in what context this "saved" is. And why does it only take effect IF they continue in faith, love, and holiness with propriety?"

Your thoughts Keith?

thanks

Vaughn

I answered that specifically in a previous "Women In Church" video. Not sure which one exactly...maybe part 4?

The key is understanding the Artemis Worship going on in Ephesus where this was written to, and how Artemis Worship promised to protect the life of the woman and the child during childbirth.

Paul is simply saying that women will be saved as they give birth if they trust in Jesus, not in Artemis, for protection.

But the details are in the previous videos.
