Matthew Henry has possibly one of the best overviews ever of 1 Thessalonians 5:21, IMHO.
He makes it very clear we are never to obey authorities without first checking to be sure the authorities are correct scripturally. It gives me no pleasure to relate that many churches’ teaching on women teaching is unscriptural. Women are not equal with men. Anyone who doesn’t understand this only needs to examine men’s and women’s anatomy. Our bodies, brains, emotions, and spheres designed by God are completely different. To be fair, women in Stanton are among the best women on earth. However, Solomon was right when he said in Ecclesiastes 10:1, “Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honor.”. Though the women in Stanton do a marvelous job having all the children they can have, obeying their husbands, mostly, staying faithful to their husbands, keeping a clean house, babysitting, teaching kids classes, being frugal with money, keeping up their exercise, teaching ladies classes, yet, this error of publicly teaching men negates SO much good!!!
Examining what has happened to me when I stated women teaching men and sharing publicly in Bible Classes with men present is unscriptural, and this same adverse treatment happened to the other men who started this truth, you begin to understand why Adam went along with Eve’s deception in the Garden. A woman who refuses to obey plain scriptural commands is extraordinarily difficult to be reasoned with. Solomon didn’t beat around the bush; he called them “brawling women.”
Women are very good at being subtle when they don’t get their way and pretending that it’s your fault. I’m being made out to be this terrible sexist man who wants to put masking tape over all the women’s mouths simply because I repeated what the Christian Church has been doing for…wait for it…One thousand nine hundred and sixty years!!!!!
Do we really think Merie magically found a truth that 2,000 years of Christianity didn’t find? Highly improbable and unlikely.
Imagine trying to correct Merie. “Ummm, Merie, women aren’t supposed to be teaching men in public?” Can you imagine the blast that would have come from her? And if you’re a married man with children, and your wife adores Merie, and women are initiating divorce 80% of the time, do you begin to understand why the men in Stanton have tolerated this from the start?
What man wants to jeopardize his marriage, his wages, and his children over stating the truth that women aren’t to teach men? That is probably why the man who said, “Women keep silent in your churches,” was never married. That would be the Apostle Paul, and the married men were all grateful, as I know every honest Christian man is thankful today for me saying this, who hasn’t been brainwashed by this feminist society. I’m a huge admirer of Paul, and have his name as my middle name, ironically, and I believe, as he did, that “women ought to keep silent in the churches” save for prayer and song requests, confessions, singing, teaching kids classes, and teaching ladies classes.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”
“This is a needful caution, to prove all things; for, though we must put a value on preaching, we must not take things upon trust from the preacher, but try them by the law and the testimony. We must search the scriptures, whether what they say be true or not. We must not believe every spirit, but must try the spirits. But we must not be always trying, always unsettled; no, at length we must be settled, and hold fast that which is good. When we are satisfied that any thing is right, and true, and good, we must hold it fast, and not let it go, whatever opposition or whatever persecution we meet with for the sake thereof. Note, The doctrines of human infallibility, implicit faith, and blind obedience, are not the doctrines of the Bible. Every Christian has and ought to have, the judgment of discretion, and should have his senses exercised in discerning between good and evil, truth and falsehood, Heb 5 13, 14. And proving all things must be in order to holding fast that which is good.”
A chance to invest in the only real free speech platform on the internet.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube all censor and they allow pornography. Why would anyone use them but not use Gab, which doesn’t censor, but bans pornography?
For those not on Gab yet, it’s a far better idea than any other social media platform.
All the other platforms do your thinking for you, and censor truth while spreading lies and filth.
(It’s all black magic. Money is just digits on a ledger kept by the Rothschilds. Occasionally they will produce coupons, i.e. currency, to make it seem real. We already have a digital currency. Chinese-style social credit is coming.)
In March, a half dozen US regional banks went bankrupt losing $500 billion in deposits. Did these depositors lose their money? No. The Fed just created $500 billion out of thin air. These Satanists have finagled the US national credit card and are maxing it out until the $USD collapses.
Politicians and cops whose salaries we pay don’t work for us, but for the central banking cartel that wishes to lock down humanity permanently. The same applies to the mass media and most professions. Everyone dances to the money tune, and Rothschild is the Pied Piper.
We suffer from blood poisoning.“Money” is the blood supply of society. This “medium of exchange” circulates like blood in a human body. With it, everyone is sanguine; without it, you have a corpse. Unfortunately, our feckless ancestors gave control over money creation to Cabalist Jews and Freemasons who find excuses (wars, scamdemics) to produce it endlessly in the form of a debt to themselves.
Their goal is to expand their monopoly over money creation into a monopoly over literally everything, (e.g. thought, “wokeness”) inducting humanity into their Satanist sex cult. They weaponized the common cold as a pretext to decimate and enslave humanity. This is the essence of Communism and the New World Order.
Mankind is doomed unless the central bank is nationalized, “debt” is disowned and money is created debt-and-interest free.
This is not likely to happen as long as its minions control everything.
Money is a Mind Game
“…They created credit money with a view to making its volume close to infinite. …it is an abstraction, a being of thought, a figure, number, credit, faith….”

In the last few years, banks have become increasingly active in pushing the globalist agenda. For example, my bank is all for “diversity” –homosexuality and immigration. (It is rare to find a male white teller at a Canadian bank who is not a homosexual.) Similarly, most corporations sing from the same globalis
t songbook. For example, Citibank just announced they will not do business with clients who do not meet progressive gun-control requirements. Banks are all franchises of the Rothschild World central banking system, much like some MacDonald’s stores are independently owned. But banks all depend on the central bank for “money.” That’s why banks and corporations dependent on them promote bizarre agendas like gender dysfunction, family breakdown, gun control, miscegenation, and minority status for Caucasians.
WHAT DOES ‘MONEY? LOOK LIKE? (When it’s not currency)
What follows is my best guess but I could be wrong. I welcome correction from better-informed people.
When I write a cheque to the gas company, an armored car does not pull up to my bank, collect the cash from my account and deliver it to the gas company’s bank. All that REALLY happens is some digits change at the two banks.
My bank account is not a little letterbox with cash sitting in it. My account is just a number in their books signifying what they owe me should, God forbid, I decide to withdraw the cash.
When we use our credit cards or when we buy a stock, the only thing that happens is that accounts are adjusted.
We are really banking with the Rothschilds. Our little nest egg is actually their magical “credit”, a slice of the national “debt” owed to them, “money” that they created from nothing and “loaned” to the government. It is a reflection of the government’s ability to repay, although it never will.
The banking system is a vast system of accounts. Money doesn’t actually exist except for a small amount in paper coupons (currency). “Money” is an abstract concept denoting value.Our currency is a medium of exchange. Think of it as an electrical current instead of currency. It is basically a virtual credit system that is the lifeblood of every economy. Who owns this franchise? This system of accounts? Who adds or subtracts credit? Who decides who gets to play? A syndicate of mostly cabalist (Masonic) Jewish banking families led by the Rothschilds.
Unfortunately, these Cabalists are Satanists. They are determined to protect and extend this banking monopoly to a monopoly over everything — real wealth, political power, knowledge, media, education, culture, religion, law etc. They want to own us and our children as well. (We are collateral on the national debt.) This isthe essence of Communism; and New World Order which is largely in place. The goal is to gradually enslave humanity. When they finally get rid of cash, they can cut off our “credit” at a moment’s notice.
How do they maintain control? They control the corporate cartels who are all dependent on banks. These corporations fund the politicians who follow bankers’ orders.
Many of these politicians are Freemasons. Organized Jewry and Freemasonry are accomplices in the banking racket. In general, complicity in the banking fraud is the price of success today.
Why is it a fraud? Because sovereign governments could “generate their own electricity” interest-and-debt-free. We wouldn’t need to sell our soul and our children’s birthright.
In the future, it is conceivable that human life will be no better than that of the animals we breed for food. The “Deep State” is the secret network dedicated to protecting the fraudulent banking system and advancing its satanic agenda. Most of the players belong to Freemasonry or Organized Jewry. Intelligence agencies like the CIA, Mossad, and MI-6, the police and the army are the bankers’ enforcers. Mass surveillance (the NSA etc.) ensures that nobody gets any ideas.Everyone — MDs, cops, politicians, journalists — is controlled by money. Our feckless ancestors gave our national credit cards to people who want to destroy us, This, in a nutshell, is the key to understanding our dilemma.
