This I disagree with. I think if you have the gift of teaching then you can teach men. I don't think that so many men/women should be teaching. It seams to me that every and their mother wants to teach. (Just what I have seen)
I also think that the gift of pastor is misunderstood. (Not sure that I understand it all myself) Elder is explained in 1 Timothy 3:1 says -- Here is a statement you can trust: anyone aspiring to be a congregation leader is seeking worthwhile work. Paul goes on to explain what the person must be like. NOT man or woman. (this is true to the greek) Here is another thing along these lines...Does a pastor NEED school? Again not to sure about this.
One thing that i see about women in the NT -- Mary sitting at Jesus feet. Never would a woman sit at a Rabbi's feet. NEVER. But Jesus does not tell her to get up. He teachers her. Even her sister is like "what's up?" But Jesus "she has choosen the better part" To me this flyes in the face of "what a woman is to do"
So the reason that I'm writting this because their are many question that are not cut and dry. Like voting, birth control, style of worship, and so on. If we are under Messiah then we are sister and brothers. We can talk about these things and still see things from our point of view.
OK, I will be quiet now. Love you ladies
