Why did God choose the men to be Prophet?

*there are some comments, one of them is :"... because , men are more powerful than women"

Prophets are said to have had some miracles granted by God, then why did God not grant some miracles to women to be more powerful as well?

More powerful in what way. Most of the men in my life were pretty weak. I guess it depends on what your definition of powerful is. In reality no person is powerful. We're actually pretty frail .

In the Old testament before Samuel chose Saul as king there were judges. One of them by the name of Deborah.

There are no female prophets in the Koran as far as I know. That is what she is referring to since she lives in a Muslim country, is a feminist and an agnostic.

WOnderful, and how does that change the validity of my statement? Or do you believe that all the "prophets" mentioned in the Quran were "chosen" by God?

Prophets, as far as I'm concerned, are all self chosen. People choose the divine or not, not the other way around.

Ok, then what was the purpose of your post? I said God didn't choose.

Might have had something to do with "keep lying to yourself".

She made the post. If she didn't believe it, then she should have put that in there. Unless she was just trolling. Hard to know since the original post is 5 years old.

She was probably trolling eanassir or one of his buddies at the time.

The author of the Gospel of John and Revelations was also a woman, Mary of Bethany. The RCC tried to make it an all boys club. Mary, the mother of Jesus and her cousin Elizabeth were both Daughters of Aaron, brother of Moses. There are a few more examples, such as are the 24 Elders 12 OT Prophets and their wives or is it 24 men alone?

I don't think "God" chose anyone to be his representative. Man is arrogant enough to appoint himself

Chosen by God, when it's really the other way around.

I thought we discussed this on another thread a long while ago - that there are numerous prophetesses in the Bible:


Female prophets: Miriam, Deborah, Huldah, Noadiah, Anna (external - login to view)




This negates the idea that men are preferred because of their greater "power" because the power of prophecy and the ability to carry it to the people are given by the Holy Spirit. That is, divine power, not personal power.

The real prophet is the woman as I taught one of my grandsons fighting
a useless battle which he could not win
I said "remember even when you win you lose"
He shut up and got his new truck a few weeks later

Are you saying Jesus and Moses lived at the same time or within 100 years of each other? That sentence doesn't make sense at all.

It does if one also believes the Earth is only 6,000 years old.

Moses was of the tribe of Levi.

Mary was descended of the tribe of Judah (Luke 3) - therefore, not related to Aaron.

Yes, but Htz doesn't. But then, he also believes that the the flood story was about snow, not rain. Go figure.

Yes, well, most of the time he is farting in the wind.

Maybe so, but Selin was referring to the Koran, I'm pretty sure.

Ah, ok.

But the Koran refers to the Bible as THE BOOK meaning that it is held sacred in that religion. Therefore, Islam must recognize the important roles assigned to women in all religious functions.

Men are more suited to be prophet than women, the inferior, weaker gender.

Being a prophet involved meeting people secretly and openly; moving throughout the land; confronting liars and establishing proof against them and debating with them; preparing and leading armies; and going through the sufferings of war. All of that is suitable for men but not for women.

The role of a prophet demands that the prophet should be in charge of those who follow him, so he issues commands and prohibitions to his followers, and he rules and judges among them. If a woman were entrusted with such tasks, she would not be able to do them properly, and there would be people who would refuse to follow and obey her.

Masculinity is just more perfect than femininity. Muslims believe that Allah said that women are lacking in reason and religious commitment.

Women have to cope with things that prevent them from doing many tasks, such as menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, which is accompanied by psychological stresses and pains, in addition to the care that is required by the child. All of that prevents her from being able to fulfil the role of Messenger and carrying out its duties.

All the prophets in Christianity, Judaism and Islime are all male. 99% of the Hindu gods are male.
