I think you're right, Violet. If women serving as pastors are against God's wishes, would His blessings be on her and her congregation?Bassmasa,
I think I tend to agree with you on most everything you said.
It concerns me because as you said, in the end it is all about God's word and what the Bible says~
So, wouldn't I be wrong to willingly sit under a woman preacher?
My wife and I have discussed this many times and I think you're exactly right. Women play an enormous role, but leading the entire congregation is not one of them. Again, in our society this is not popular to say, but it's the truth.Shouldn't that be an important role for the older women to teach the younger, as the Bible instructs them to do?
Steve, the scripture listed by Violet is from Timothy, a New Testament book.I would however like to know just where the Old testament does come into play in Christianity. I personaly do not see anything wrong with a woman as a pastor.
