  • We are all commanded to preach the Word of God. So women can preach the Word. The Bible distinguishes between preachers and pastors. Pastors are to be male, according to the Bible.

  • I remember during bible study one time, we were studying 1 Timothy 2:12: But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

    The 'teacher' told me that because of what Paul says, he would rather have a homeless, drunk man off the street come in to teach Sunday School to adults than for a woman to do it. I was appalled of course and asked why. He said because a man cannot control his sexual thoughts about women and that the men in the class would not be able to concentrate on the lesson because he'd be thinking naughty things about the woman teaching.

  • So in other words woman are to sit there, shut up and not be in a position of authority because a man can't control his dirty mind or his penis. It's all OUR fault you know...

  • I hope so, since the church I go to has a great woman pastor.

  • I don't see a problem with it but to some it is said that they should remain silent

  • Jesus said in matthew 24. To go on to all and preach the gospel. It didnt say men only. Sorry but women are as well allowed to teach b a pastor all in all. Sorry but men are not doing it. So wat does God do he lifts up a women to do. We can do all through Christ that strenght us.
