More Greek From A Man Who Never Took It Aug 2, 2006
What bothers me is not Kenneth Hagin's plagiarism of E.W. Kenyon, although that is worthy of a book itself. What bothers me is not his reductionist view of Jesus to a 'man anointed by the Holy Spirit' in His ministry. And what bothers me is not his Pentecostalism.
It is the fact that the man does not have the first clue what he's talking about.
Hagin has much ado on the Greek word 'gyne,' which he turns into wife at a whim. Let's face it: Hagin's 'Greek teaching' comes from looking at Strong's, cross referencing it, and saying whatever he wants it to say. He never took a Greek course, wouldn't know what BDAG is if someone sent him a copy, and uses it horribly to teach whatever he thinks is right.
It's very simple: elders and bishops are to be the HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE. Period. Unless Hagin can come up with some sort of papyrus manuscript that proves his point, he loses the argument since the reason stated why is very simple: it was Eve who was tempted, not Adam.
Did that ever change?
If not, why should anyone argue what they are on this issue?
A poor argument for female leadership - one of the worst, in fact, I've ever read.
It's a start... Jul 20, 2005
I heard about this book on www.womenandthebible.com and decided to see what the fuss was about. While I don't agree with everything, I think it does a good job at making a point to those who are saturated with traditional teaching. However, once again here is a book which states that the curse on Adam and Eve was 'prophetic' and carries onto us today. I would like to ask where this is EXACTLY in scripture?? Even if it's in there, wouldn't Jesus negate this curse? .......... Despite it's few shortcomings this book comes across as not too traditional and not too liberal making it appealing to many. You can take and leave what you like, but still walk away with a gem or two to ponder.
Why isn't there a "0 stars" option? Nov 17, 2004
In recognition of the inherent ambiguity in Greek regarding the word 'gyne' the first step is to replace the word 'women' with what Kenneth E. Hagin deems the most appropriate rendering; 'wife'. So, as I see it, Kenneth is saying:
1.) The command in 1 Timothy 2:11-15 has only to do with a wife not having authority over her husband. And so, by implication, an adult woman (for all agree that a child is not to wield authority over a parent) may have authority over any man that is not her husband, if she is married, and over all men, if she is unmarried.
2.) The command has only to do with her not teaching her husband and that teaching other men is allowed. In clearer terms, the verse has nothing to do with the public activities of educating or instructing men that are not her husband; but, instead, has only to do with a wife not publicly teaching her own husband.
3.) The command for women to be silent in 1 Corinthians 14:33b-40 is for wives only and whatever teaching and authority in view in the first two points must be done non-verbally.
Now, all that is left to do is to apply Kenneth's correct hermeneutical principle, namely that if using `wife' leads to an absurd rendering, and conversely using `woman' leads to a clearer rendering, then one is grammatically bound to use `woman' (and vice versa, of course).
Since one is reason bound to declare point three as utterly absurd one must conclude that since using `wife' results in absurdity one must therefore prefer using the word `women' instead.

Fairly balanced approach Aug 18, 2004
I think Hagin gives a fairly balanced approach to this mine field of a topic. He is definetly convinced that women should be able to minister in all the ways men are, yet here and there he inserts quotes from people he respects that advocate that women should have a certain submisive attitude while doing it. (He cites a woman who preaches and starts churches but won't baptise). I personally see no problem with women baptizing or serving in any of the 5 fold office gifts. I do believe that 1 Timothy 2 is refering to women in general and not just "wives", though I could be wrong. The word translated "authority" in 1 Tim 2 is used nowhere else in scripture. The context though puts it in reference to eldership. Hagin doesn't touch this interesting point. I believe the scriptures thus teach that a woman may be an evangelist or an apostle, but the eldership of a local church should be composed of the Fathers and Husbands. It's not a matter of gifting at all, simply placing the responsibility on men to step up and take resposibility for their local church.
MidWest Book Review Jul 4, 2004
I have grown so weary of ministering to men who scream at their wives, " You must submit and do anything I say," and have the nerve to call it Godly. Finally in Mr. Haggins wonderful book he addresses this problem and so many more that face women today.
So many women have been led to feel as if they were second class citizens in the spiritual realm. That is not the case, but rather God deeply loves and respects women. Rev. Haggin explains in simple terms what all the Scriptures concerning women taking roles of authority, fulfilling commissions and just plain being used in God's Kingdom really means. This book is a real eye opener and should be required reading for all women and men who are serious about obeying God and His Word. Well worth your time. Highly recommended.
