Opposition to Women in Ministry
Dr. Kluane Spake
Recently I was thinking about the church’s preoccupation with rigid doctrine and how it is often misused to suppress others. There is a particular opposition to Women in Ministry. The very precious Word of God that should set us free is used to entangle us in bondage and laws.
When I pastored a church in the 80’s-90’s, there was a blatant opposition me being a woman in leadership.
One prominent local pastor piously told me that I didn’t have his “permission” to start a church there in Guam.
Often the local pastors gathered together outside our Friday night services and picketed our building. While waving their dreadful signs about me being “Babylon the Great Harlot,” they cried out to those passing by, “You’re going to hell, hallelujah!”
Yes… it was other Christians who opposed me – not the devil! Not wickedness from the pit of Hell. Those were the pastors who waged war on me. They used those few texts of Paul to try and keep me stopped. These men felt justified by Scripture to try and diminish, dominate and control not just me but all the women in their churches as well.
There were endless times of trial – of being preached against from nearly every pulpit – of being lambasted on the radio and newspaper… What was going on? We were locked and chained from our building… the city would not allow me to have communion or any sacrament in our church! We were often on the front page of the newspaper as we tried to apply to the legislature for new zoning and being radically opposed (we did win).
The more I studied, the more I understood that Paul really was trying to set women free. During that time, I traveled to Turkey and Asia Minor to learn about how our interpretations of these Scriptures have become misunderstood.
I finally realized that all this opposition was great publicity! People flocked all the more to our church and the miracles soared. I had to get above the noise and accusation and realize that God was for us!
Beloved… you are fully acceptable to the Lord. He has called each one of us to be his emissary.
The GOOD news is that I have developed an online course about women being created to lead. You can get it HERE!
10 Fabulous Reasons to NOT Set NEW YEARS GOALS THIS YEAR!
Beyond building your next TO DO goal check list – is there anything else?
I mean really –- of course there is benefit in building your goals, but… if you really want to live the life of your dreams, is there anything else to consider?
Just for a moment, could you look at your life as a journey? An ongoing expedition that is far greater than a few lists for New Year’s goals. Perhaps your life has more purpose than you have realized so far?
It is important to ask the right questions and take a moment for introspection.
AM I HAPPY?
WOW! That’s a hard one for some of us! Of course we think we are – most of the time. Through obligation and responsibility we can find accomplishment. But, what do you feel deep inside when you ask this question? Just sit there a minute and think about it — How do your mind and your body respond when you ask yourself about happiness?
WHEN DO I FEEL ALIVE?
Think back. Is it when you are having an adventure, helping others, traveling? Maybe when you sing, or are with family. This is a clue to manifesting the radiant manifestation of LIFE.

Peace — One New Man
Here we are, once again, at Christmas time and most of us are unable to find the fullness of that longed for Promised Peace. Seems more and more that we are surrounded by a social system stirred with storms of war and terrorism.
Many have searched for peace. In memory of his soldier son who had died in the war, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote these famous words:
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of PEACE on earth, good will to men.
How can we find peace? Jesus lived and died to establish many realities that stretch even beyond the salvation of our soul. Among many reasons, He died to create a new society upon this earth – one that is able to dwell in His presence and embrace His PEACE in our hearts in this world (Lk. 2:10, 11, 14). Even amidst the turmoil of this hour, Jesus is our only PEACE.
DIVISIONS and discord have long existed. Archeologists explain the temple court in the New Testament times as having an elevated platform for the priests, with separated sections for the men and women. On the other side, the Gentiles were able to peer through.
