Women as Pastors – What Does the Bible Say?

I wrote a three pages series, the first in a series of articles that will be written by the GLM writers that are designed to answer the question ‘What Did Paul Mean In 1 Timothy.” How did Paul justify ordering the church to support women pastors, and even work alongside women apostles, but told the church that women must be silent and have no authority over a man?

I wanted to focus more on scripture and bible verses when referring to Paul’s teaching on women – than on traditional concept. In many places I went back to the Greek to get a clearer understanding of the verse. I used Strong’s Concordance, and modern translations. At no time did I ‘interpret’ beyond what the scripture said.

I do not expect everyone to agree. I just hope the Holy Spirit guides you as He sees fit. I also made it clear that Paul worked with women, but also admonished those who were arrogant and uneducated. This topic cannot be understood unless you look at the entire concept.

Women as Pastors is a controversial topic. It is one that the church is afraid to touch because it is steeped in tradition, both church and cultural. The best way to read this series is to read it as reflecting God’s opinion, not the one you were taught.

I also want to stress that Paul taught against ‘educated’ leaders, and for ‘Spirit filled’ leaders. It is important in today’s society to avoid those who go for quick online ordinations and do not come under the leadership of the church – male and female. This topic is also covered briefly in this series, and will be expanded on later.

If God ordains a pastor then he will make it possible for them to become properly educated and He will place them under the cover of His church. At no time in the bible does God ordain people to strike out on their own, away from Him.

I look forward to your comments.
