Is Women Preaching a Secondary Issue?

7/25/2022
What is a so-called "secondary issue in doctrine?" And does women preaching and having authority over men in the congregation fall in that category? Hang onto your hats -- in this episode, Michelle and Amy explain why Scripturally, a female "pastorix" falls into a level of apostasy in the visible Church, and not an issue Christians can simply agree to disagree on.

Why We Won’t Stay Silent

5/10/2022
In recent times many women who speak truth are told they need to be silent, and not "criticize" anointed teachers who "occasionally" teach something opposite of what Scripture says. Amy and Michelle have both been sounding the alarm for a number of years about wolves in sheep's clothing, and we've been pointing to God's Word as the only source of truth by which all teachings must be measured. We do it because so many people have come from abusive, apostate churches and need to hear. In this...

Titus 2: Teach What Is Good?

5/2/2022
Does Titus 2: 3-5 really say that women should not be teaching doctrine to - or sharing the Gospel with - other women? Michelle and Amy were guests this week on Voice of Reason, a podcast by Chris Honholz and Richard Story, to discuss what seems to be a new twisting of Scripture: a wave of legalism that seems to be gaining momentum, especially in Reformed circles. And it tells us that women are not to be teaching other women anything about holiness or doctrine, and that any woman teaching...
