It's ok to keep slaves according to the Bible. You gonna do that any time soon? Or would it be ok if someone made you a slave and said it was ok because it was in the Bible? It is full of immoral acts, think for yourself. Sheesh.
No if there is a woman pastor you must tell her to go to isreal and listen 2 the baptists about the subject of a thousand suns, then drink the blood from a Jehovah witness, then play jenga with the giraffe at midnight and then you will be accepted as a man Matt versus 3 paragraph 1
Pastor is a job meant for males by it's very nature, it is a direct derivative from the Latin "Pater" when declined, which means "Father", obviously, a woman cannot be a father. Naturally, being a father is the job of a man, just as naturally, being a mother is the job of a woman. That being said, while it would be wrong for a woman to be a Pastor, it would not be wrong for her to have a different leadership position that fits her natural sensibility of maternal instinct, as opposed to being put directly into a paternal position, which would cause conflict due to intrinsic incompatibility between the two.
I don't see why not this sexist thing is quite stupid if a women can do it let her back in the time of the bible women practically didn't have any rights do to the machist goverment of the time so in my opinion and on what I've learned I'd say that it's ok.
The clear implication is that women are not to serve in any role which involves the authoritative spiritual teaching of men. By this definition, the role of teaching pastor/shepherd is reserved for men. This is confirmed in the two passages which deal specifically with the qualifications for church leadership (1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:6-9). Church leaders are described as the "husband of one wife," .. and "men worthy of respect.". Rather than focusing on what ministries women are restricted from, the focus should be on the multitude of ways God calls and gifts women to serve. Women are nowhere restricted from proclaiming the gospel to the lost (Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:15). Women are encouraged to teach other women (Titus 2:3-5). Women are nowhere restricted from teaching children. Women seem to excel, far beyond men, in some of the spiritual gifts and fruit of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5:22-23). Women being restricted from spiritual teaching authority over men is not a punishment. Rather, it is a refocusing to the ministries, skills, and gifts God with which blesses women.Read more: http://www.compellingtruth.org/women-pastors.html#ixzz2ONNzphmb
at my church, some of the ole goats would freak out if there were a lady preacher. these same old coots don't particularly like me having long hair and a beard. I am there to hear the message...not concern myself much who is the messenger. if a cow was up there talking about Jesus, I would listen, even if I can't speak cow...;-)
I don't know if I have ever heard scripture disallowing women to be teachers of scripture, or pastors, or any other leader by description. I'm thinking THAT philosophy was generated by men who took gospel and twisted it to suit their purposes of ultimate control over the 'weaker' sex.
Gospel has clearly indicated that a husband have 'authority' over his wife and children (thus being 'head of the household') .. but should still have ultimate respect for his family.
No, 1 Timothy 3:2 and Titus 1:6 make it plain that women can't. (But the Bible doesn't say that a woman doesn't have plenty of other things she can do! To say that would be like saying that a man has no input in a family just because he doesn't bear the children!)
Yes Jesus healed the woman at the well that had been married several times and was divorced at the time she met him. It says he healed her and she then ran to the town and told her story. It also speaks of both men and women will prophecy in the end times.
Scripture saysChrist is the head of the Church/that man is head of the home/ women should teach in the home.women were deacons in the first churches-so Im sure they taught in the early churches . But i dont "feel" that women should lead / but instruct the children/other sisters and young women.
