Theology, Titus 2 womanhood

Women, standing on the Word of God

2 Timothy 3: 14-17, But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

​Sisters, we not only need to know how to care for our homes but we also need to know theology ourselves. Some try to split the two and say women ought to leave theology to the men. Well, it’s true we ought to leave the public teaching of it to men but we’re called to know and obey God’s Word ourselves; how can we possibly do that if we are not actively learning it?

Our husbands and fathers need to know that when they are away, we’re not filling their little one’s heads with theological junk. So many women are so easily misled because they don’t know what Scripture has said.

I was raised in the church of Christ and I learned so many lies from its theology. By God’s grace, I also learned some good theology in the church but that was purely an accident. Mama didn’t read the Word of God with me but before I could read well, I was memorizing portions of Scripture because the elders would read it aloud. I learned about God’s sovereignty, His holiness, His demand for us to be holy, the call to surrender all to Him, and even the crucifixion and the resurrection through the songs we sang in church. Unknowingly, they were laying the foundation for me to learn about sovereign grace, Reformed theology, and so on years down the line.

“Whatever contradicts the Word of God should be instantly resisted as diabolical.” ~ John Bunyan

We have to be careful what we put into our minds. Most women–in fact, most men these days–who write theological books write spiritual poison. They are unworthy to be read. They are dangerous to our souls. Sadly, many won’t call them out. We need to be people of God who will call out false teachers, who are able to identify sound teachers, and who stand firmly on Scripture because we know what it says.

So, to that end, the first thing we need to understand is that every word contained in the Word of God is true. It’s inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative and anything that contradicts it is in the wrong. The Word of God is never, ever, wrong. That means that… Marxism
Black liberation theology
Woke theology
Hatred of patriarchy
Denial of a young earth
Denial of six day creation
Denial of literal universal flood
Denial of the inerrancy of Scripture
Ignores the infallibility of Scripture
Denial of the sufficiency of Scripture
Denial of the authority of Scripture
Denial of God’s sovereignty
Denial of the birth, death, or resurrection of Christ
Tyrants both in the church and out of it
and more…
are all wrong.

They are all wrong, all these beliefs are wrong, because they all contradict God’s Holy Word.

Anything that in any way denies the sufficiency, inerrancy, infallibility, and sufficiency of Scripture is always false. All errors, both theological and otherwise, must by necessity begin with one of these. For when we believe that we know better than God, or that our pastor, our friend, or culture, or anyone else, ought to be listened to over the Lord, we are sinning.
