    In many churches today women do the teaching of the youth, both boy and girls. I would like to here how some justify this when scriptures teach that women are not to teach men. At what age should boys be considered in this group?

    1Ti 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
    1Ti 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

    Somewhere in the junior high years the boys start that long period of change to become men. That is a very good time for the men to take over instruction.

    Agree Helen. I know I appreciated male teachers in church and youth starting in 4-5th grade. But junior high at least.

    Freeatlast, you won't get any scripture from ME that says women can teach men or older boys. It's not there!

    Since boys have no authority for women to usurp, one must wait until these boys become men before women are prohibited from usurping.

    Sadly, woman HAVE to step up and fill the role of teachers in the church for the simple reason that men will not do it.

    In Christ,

    Isn't this referring to within a church, not in home or school settings? (Such as public school, homeschool, Sunday School)
    It seems to be referring to church, where man is given authority to do these things. One cannot usurp an authority that the other does not have, and men are given sole authority to teach in the church. Nothing states that they have sole authority to teach in all other settings.

    Maybe if the women were not so eager to do things maybe the men might begin to lead. I have seen it happen. So I know it can be done. I pastored a church where the men were like women and the women like men. But over time I made some changes because as I had opportunity I trained the men to lead and they did. Some of the ladies caught on and thought that it was great that some of the men who were not leading were changing and becoming leaders. Many times I did things with the men individually without their wives present. Then later we did church activities where the men led their families in the activity. The men became stronger. So it can happen if it is done right. But it takes time.
