Instructions Concerning Proper Christian Behavior

Instructions Concerning Proper Christian Behavior

Passage: 1 Timothy 2:8-15

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: The Blueprint for Building God’s Church

Category: Church-Life

This is one of the most controversial passages in all of scripture, because it begs the question, what are the roles and responsibilities of men and woman in the church? Is it allowable for a woman to be a Pastor or Elder? Was Paul pandering to a chauvinistic society in Ephesus? When we closely examine the text and the Bible as a whole, God established the roles of men and woman in the Garden of Eden. Those distinctives have not changed through the progressive revelation of Scripture. The pastoral epistles teach that men are charged with the responsibility of leading public prayer and teaching the local assembly of believers. But this doesn’t diminish the importance and value of woman in the church.
