Default Should women be pastors?

That is, what does the Bible say on this? Should women be pastors, or should we adopt a Modern-day Politically correct approach in the church so as to satisfy our human arrogance??

No, not scared....not in any way, shape, or form should you be scared.......of what by the way?

Here's the Got Questions answer:

http://www.gotquestions.org/women-pastors.html

The GQ bottom line:
God has ordained that only men are to serve in positions of spiritual teaching authority in the church. This is not because men are necessarily better teachers, or because women are inferior or less intelligent (which is not the case). It is simply the way God designed the church to function. Men are to set the example in spiritual leadership—in their lives and through their words. Women are to take a less authoritative role. Women are encouraged to teach other women (Titus 2:3-5). The Bible also does not restrict women from teaching children. The only activity women are restricted from is teaching men or having spiritual authority over them. This logically would preclude women from serving as pastors/preachers. This does not make women less important, by any means, but rather gives them a ministry focus more in agreement with God’s plan and His gifting of them.


Later.

I'd say sure ... Women in the church can and should have the ability to teach congregations re: the bible if they have the proper knowledge and understanding of bible.

This has alreay been beaten to death on here. Better to just go read that thread then to open new wounds.

What it boils down to is ones persoanl opinions because everyone reads only what they want to on subjects like this.
