Noel Cordle on Women In The Bible

My daughter, Noel Spencer Cordle, is starting a series of posts on what can be learned from various women in the Bible

Visit her blog and subscribe. She’s a wonderful writer and these studies will be worthwhile, especially for young women/wives.

  1. I look forward to reading her homily on the daughters of Lot.

  2. Dear Mike,

    I have been helped and blessed by reading your essays and listening to your podcasts. Keep up the good work! I have a question that I would like for you to address (or if you have addressed this already, maybe you can direct me to the article): I know that many fundamentalist believers use passages from the apostle Paul to restrict women from preaching or teaching in church. I am a pastor, and at times my wife, who is quite gifted, preaches in our church. Another gifted sister in the Lord sometimes preaches as well. In fact, there are more gifted women in our church than men! In my heart I believe that God sees women and men as equal, and He gives them gifts to be used for His glory. And yet some of the teachings of Paul suggest to me that he taught for women to not preach or teach in church (with the exception of teaching other women). Could you share your thoughts about how to understand Paul’s writings about this. Am I wrong to allow my wife to preach at times in church? How can we properly interpret such passages as First Timothy 2:11-15, I Cor 14:34-35? I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this. God bless!
