Diane Brooks Bundy, a grandmother and great-grandmother who was the youngest of ten children and had a challenging childhood after losing both parents by the time she had turned twelve, has published her latest book “Let the Women Keep Silent in the Churches”: an insightful exploration of women’s roles throughout biblical history.

For centuries, the question of who and what women should or should not be doing in God’s churches has been labeled down through the centuries as one of the great controversies, and it remains today to be a big conflict in 2019. The passages in 1 Corinthians 14:34–35 and 1 Timothy 2:11–12 found in the New Testament have been used and abused wrongfully to satisfy and appease the opinions and theories of the male mind-set, to satisfy the perspectives of the overview of what some pastors and some men believe. God has set positive proof before us in the Old Testament and Jesus and the Apostle Paul in the New Testament about a woman’s place in the church, in ministry, and in leadership. This is an argument that should have been put to rest centuries past. To persist in asking this question is to doubt God and to deny His Word, for God and His Word are one.

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” The Greek word for inspiration is “theospneustos”, which literally means “God-breathed.” Every word of the Bible is God-breathed, directly from God’s own mouth; therefore, it is infallible. According to some pastors and men of today, this is absolutely unheard of, and the actions displayed by men is that even though God is God, God had no right to put women in these positions with power or authority. What about the women that labored with Paul? How do we account for all those women? How do we explain the women who fought for God on the front line and were fellow laborers with God in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament as well as Paul? Nowhere in the entire Bible is there a hint of evidence that God, Jesus, or the Apostle Paul ever indicated that women were not to be in leadership roles or in ministry.
