Within what context? I just wanted to mention that there currently are female pastors and a female bishop within other Christian denominations.
(Catholicism is the main denomination that prohibits females from becoming priests.) The first female bishop for the Church of England was Libby Lane.
I realise the question is, 'Should there be female pastors?' Given that the times are changing it seems to be the more favorable position.
I'm not Christian, and I don't support this. But according to their Bible, women aren't allowed to hold the position of bishop or pastor, so I'm assuming that the women who subscribe to this religion understand this section of it.
They already are in a lot of denominations because women are supposed to have equal rights
The Bible actually doesnt prohibit it not that that makes a difference to me i still think yes. There is a word in the original scriptures that can be translated to both "servant" and "minister". The sexist society that translated this into English wanted to keep women under control so in the case if men they chose "minister" and in the case of women it was changed to "servant"
Also the passage telling women to learn in silence is a mistranslation. A more accurate translation is learn "with dilligence or patience"
