Women and Church Eldership

18.WOMEN IN CHURCH TO TEACH ONLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN

It is, of course, quite true that Christian women, though never to preach or keerussein — are indeed to be encouraged to teach (or didaskein). Indeed, they are to teach children. Prov. 1:8; 3:3; 6:20; 31:1-9. Too, they are further to teach other women. For Paul inspiredly insists that "the aged women" are to be "teachers of good things, [in order] that they may teach the young women to be sober; to love their husbands; to love their children; to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands — so that the Word of God be not blasphemed." Tit. 2:3-5.
