Michigan Pastor Ordains His 6 Daughters
This is another example of Scripture taken out of context to substantiate a personal private sense of Revelation from God. Scripture is God-breathed (2 Tim. 3:15-16). There is no gray area to ponder. However, there are times that many are deceived into believing otherwise.
This is Satan’s playground to trick as many people as possible, especially believers. He knows his time is drawing to a close. We must stand strong and use our bibles now more than ever.
A Pentecostal pastor, ‘Apostle’ Keith Barr, ordained his six daughters as ministers earlier this month in Michigan. Barr said if God didn’t want women to be leaders in the church, he wouldn’t “anoint them.”
“The Bible says in the last days, in Acts, it shall come to pass that ‘I’ll pour out my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, old men shall dream dreams. Young men shall see visions,’” he said.
“This is a time when we’re experiencing a massive outpouring around the world and God is using men and women. So the people that would argue, I would tell them, ‘if the Holy Spirit does not want women to be in leadership, then He shouldn’t anoint them,’” Barr said.
“They love ministry with all their hearts. I believe that a person should not just sign up for ministry, especially full time ministry. They should be called,” he added, noting that he initially “didn’t have any plans for them in the ministry.”
Some of the sisters began “preaching” as young as age 9, while the others have been leaders in youth groups at school and led revivals in addition to participating in missionary work.
The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14:34 that:
“Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says.”
This is not a matter of inequality, it is a matter of the way God has ordained His church should run.
