Rising numbers of women opt for priesthood

UK - Rising numbers of women are entering the priesthood as a second career, Church of England figures show. Women are being encouraged to join after movements such as #MeToo boosted their confidence and prompted male clergy to offer them more support, church leaders suggested. Following in the footsteps of the Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, who joined the Church after a successful career in nursing, the number of women aged 40 to 54 being accepted for ordination has grown by 32 per cent in two years. 

Catherine Nancekievill, the church's head of discipleship and vocation, said that "changing attitudes are definitely a factor". "Men actually championing women's ministry and getting behind it really seems to have shifted over the last ten years, and congregations becoming more accepting as well," she said.

Yet another example where these so called Christian Churches do not look to the Bible as their guide. They allow women to take leadership roles in their churches totally contrary to the Word of God!

Writing to the Church at Corinth, Paul wrote:

“Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings.” (I Corinthians 14:34-35 Holy Bible, New Living Translation)

Writing to Timothy, Paul makes this point very clear:

“Women should learn quietly and submissively. I do not let women teach men or have authority over them. Let them listen quietly.” (I Timothy 2:11-12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
