Are Women allowed to become shepherds, lead or enter the altar in celestial
Since the demise of the founding fathers of celestial church, series of questionable things have been happening in the church
A very concerning one is the advent of women entering the altar and leading in the church as shepherds.
The constitution and tenets of celestial forbids and does not permit women to lead in the church, become shepherds(pastors) or enter the altar.
They are only permitted to pray, read the Bible during sermons, and their sittings have been fixed and bounded adjacent the pulpit but no entry or access to the altar.
They are also unlimitedly graced to be integral members of adminstration and management in the church.
They are not permitted to preach in the church but they are permitted to preach and teach within women organization, outside the church and in women circles of the church
Many women are building churches or are wives of deceased shepherds and do strive to be in control of such.
According to celestial clime, a male shepherd is needed to be in charge of the altar.
Many even set up altars on their own
Female Shepherds is forbidden and totally anti celestial.
They can also be coworkers in the vineyard, prophetess, ministers, counsellors and teachers.
Women are limited in some areas but are unlimited in vast areas
With the growth of the Church, women are needed in active participation in lagging ministry’s such as teaching, counselling and more
Apostle Paul’s letters also mention twelve women by name who were coworkers with him in the gospel ministry. This is the most often neglected evidence from the New Testament relevant to the participation of women in ministry.
Three women are known as leaders of house churches (the only type of church there was in the first century!): Chloe (1 Corinthians 1:11), Nympha (Colossians 4:15) and Apphia (Philemon 2). To this group we can add Lydia, a Pauline house church leader known from Acts 16.
Paul stated that four women—Mary, Tryphena, Tryphosa, and Persis (Romans 16:6, 12)—had worked very hard in the Lord. The Greek word translated “work very hard” was used very regularly by Paul to refer to the special work of the gospel ministry, including his own apostolic ministry (1 Corinthians 4:12; 15:10; Galatians 4:11; Philippians 2:16; Colossians 1:29; 1 Timothy 4:10; see also Acts 20:35) as well as the work of others in the ministry, leaders and persons of authority in each case (1 Corinthians 16:15–16; 1 Thessalonians 5:12; 1 Timothy 5:17). Thus, for Paul, the term “work very hard” was not a casual term referring to menial tasks.
