Why do we allow women to sing in church

Ha! And here we have it, folks! The arrogance of the woman! Calling adherence to the scripture "extreme", describing men of the Word as "back-woods", etc. Of course, this short video is a demonstration of a proper anniversary dinner interaction between a man and his wife, prOBably shot in James' church. Mr. Pleasant Preacher's wife is a good example of a Christian wife--to quote the man, "what more would she (a good Christian wife) want? What more would she desire?"


Im glad you made this point Tommy my boy. I guess you being member of a church as is that pastor in the clip, you realize you to are a bride, so be prepared to clean toilet bowls and clean your husband's house for eternity. That clip is so ridiculous that pastor should get a toilet bowl swirly for that one.

Why do we allow women to sing in church? Interesting question.  The passage in context deals with teaching in the church, particularly WHO is teaching; clearly, women are not permitted to speak i

It would be dull as anything with only men singing at church. Let the voices of all the saints be heard.

Clorox is produced by a no-good, homosexualist supporting company. You need to inform your husband to change the brands, so that your purchases don't go to support ungodliness.


I'd venture to guess your internet provider allows homosexuals to work for them, you should disconnect. Also, I'm sure Youtube which you post those clips from...supports homosexuals as well. While, I agree with your point to a certain extent...with this hellbound, disgusting world...it is almost impossible to use products, evangelize, preach the word, etc if you completely forsook every company that allowed homosexuals in their ranks or any other sin. It might be possible but I'm sure you'd have to be extremely careful.

As soon as you prove yourselves to be men of the Word, I'll take back that comment. For now, I'll just stick with "By their fruits ye shall know them." Show us where the Bible says that women should sweat (as I recall, the word sweat (mentioned only three times in the King James Bible) is applied only to men (Genesis 3:19). Man of the Word, eh? More like a false teacher...or, as I said, a teenager getting a kick out of being a troll.

Well, "man of the Word," the answer to that question is in Scripture. All the more reason you'll never discover it.

Naturally, I'm a MAN! :face:

:th_laugh1:
I didn't have a chance to get on Online Baptist when I finally got home last night (stayed late after church to caucus with the ladies about the Thanksgiving weekend menus). I was literally laughing out loud this morning while reading this exchange!

Actually, my wife used to be a good cook, but since she had a brain haemorrhage and nearly died, about 15 years ago she cannot cope too well now.


An older man who attends our church has been dealing with something similar with his wife. She can no longer do a lot of things and he can't cook well so they eat a lot of take out and they go out to eat a lot.

Sorry to hear about your wife. My wife has health issues, nothing nearly as serious as your wifes, but it has greatly affected what she can and can't do. I'm thankful to the Lord we don't have to face these things alone.

Yes, at the time, we had just returned from a baptism in London, on the Lord's day, when my wife collapsed and was taken to hospital, and transferred to a specialist hospital in London. She was in Intensive care for nearly a week. It was a bit traumatic in the waiting room at times as there was the family of a man who was a Catholic with his wife and ex wife who kept arguing. They were trying to get a priest to give him the last rites. A presbeterian miinster visited him and then the priest came in, or should I say staggered in. The exwife said "Look at the state of him, it looks as if they have dragged him out of the pub, at least the other man prayed for him. They have on ly been keeping him on life support till the priest arrives. They want him to donate organs, huh, what organs of his are fit to donate to anybody?"

On the Friday, my daughter's pastor visited her and the nurses said, "Why are you visiting her? you should be comforting the family." The following day, his church had a bible rally and the pastor asked our foster son "How is your mum?" and was astounded when he said she is out of intensive care. She had many people praying for her and has very gradually recovered, but is not up to coping 100%. She does all the washing which is just as well as I haven't a clue how to use the machine.

It's such a difficult thing when such happens to our loved ones. Praise God for His evident intervention!

Yes, and the phone/cable company you pay your internet bill to allows porn to be streamed over their lines. Edited by Wilchbla

It's an interesting question I have some background in rabinicisim or what is often called incorrectly ultra orthodox judaism.im a born again Christian,my Christian life I have spent more time listening than making a noise. I have even  learnt 3 insteaments and tryed out a few Christian bands CDs but ,find most to be noisy of like brainwashing with false doctrine to a catchy beat .I love the old church chants but the was a taboo thing in tachovskeys day even istraments in church we taboo only the organ was allowed .Now we have everything a modern rock band has immodest women and even smoke machines . sometimes at night I just like to hear god's music the crickets and in the morning the birds . sometimes my heart's sings .in orthodoxy a woman can only sing for her husband.jn Christ were free to do all things but not everything is benifical.befire I was a Christian I heard a beautiful single obe,playing a classical piece .and I thought it was so beautiful God must exist .I was still a child and wondering about is I had come to have toes, everything was miraculous to me .I suppose music has its place .I would not make rules but don't think female performance is right in God's house .

vote at church meetings?

(This might be appropriate to a new thread)

Where did such a thing come from ? (vote at church)

I just spent about two hours searching such as could be found about the true disciples in the first century and later,  and could not find "voting" as a part of their ways at all.

I was happily delighted to find this again after not seeing it for perhaps a year or more,  having been first alerted to this topic by some member of onlinebaptist an unknown passage of time ago (whether thru posts, or thru links at their webpage,  I don't remember).

"We believe that the Baptists are the original Christians. We did not commence our existence at the reformation, we were reformers before Luther and Calvin were born; we never came from the Church of Rome, for we were never in it, but we have an unbroken line up to the apostles themselves. We have always existed from the days of Christ, and our principles, sometimes veiled and forgotten, like a river which may travel under ground for a little season, have always had honest and holy adherents. Persecuted alike by Romanists and Protestants of almost every sect, yet there has never existed a Government holding Baptist principles which persecuted others; nor, I believe, any body of Baptists ever held it to be right to put the consciences of others under the control of man. We have ever been ready to suffer, as our martyrologies will prove, but we are not ready to accept any help from the State, to prostitute the purity of the Bride of Christ to any alliance with Government, and we will never make the Church, although the Queen, the despot over the consciences of men.

Charles H. Spurgeon"

Why do we allow women to sing in church? Interesting question. 

The passage in context deals with teaching in the church, particularly WHO is teaching; clearly, women are not permitted to speak in teaching the church in a general sense, as the role of authority has been given to the man; they are to learn in silence. But singing, as in congregational singing, or even specials, (which I personally believe ought to be done sparingly,) are not in that context, but are more about general edification of the church, and the command was that we sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to ourselves to others, with no command to specifically male or female, thus it is a general command to all believers. This is why women are allowed to sing in the church.

Is there any Scriptural reason we SHOULD NOT allow women to sing in the church? I don't seem to find any. I know that my late sister was the music director in the Providence Baptist Church of Augusta, GA for many years until she got sick and they took that away from her. She did more for that music program than many of the previous MEN who held the position, and kept it all Scriptural. Her husband was a deacon there for many years. 

In the church I grew up in, Faith Baptist Church of Pekin, IL, we had a lady named Marge Smalley who was the choir director. It's not like she or my sister either one were preaching sermon, and they weren't usurping the authority of a man. In the SBC and even in many of the IFB churches here in the Southern USA, you will find that there are many female choir and worship leaders. I would certainly hope that we aren't advocating a position that a woman can't be used in the service of the Lord.
