Ugh, I so dislike women preachers.

I mean I am a woman myself, but not only do I think its wrong biblically, but they typically are very boring.

I hope you are referring to female pastors, not sacerdotal (Roman) priests, as the latter class are unBiblical, whether male or female. Let me know your thoughts on this (too much or to little restrictive): http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/WOMENPASTORS.html

I am not a Biblical scholar by any means, but it certailnly seems to me that only men should be pastors. Not only do I think this is Biblical, but with men losing so much authority in society as a whole, and with the absence of fathers in so many families, and the number of single mothers,  I think that the retention of the traditional role of men as the authority in churches is vital to the survival of society. As men are more and more denigrated in the society, their authority in the churches should be magnified as a counterbalance.
Not that I see this happening!  It seems to me that more and more denominations are giving in to pressure and allowing women pastors.

It does seem women are not considered equal in the Bible. Women aren't even allowed to talk in church.

Yes there are important women in the Bible but only because they were called to it. Even then it was usually about giving birth to someone important but again, the attention goes to the husband and or the male child.

There are many more but I need to get to the point.

The point is, things have changed. I am not saying, change the Bible. I am saying is, we have to apply the Bible to the world of today. If we don't, we need to change alot of things we do.
For example, we can't drive cars or anything that causes pollution because pollution can harm our bodies. However that isn't practical.

Therefore not allowing women to preach isn't practical. Women are equal.

Rev 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

The Bible does not place women as being unequal. The Bible teaches us that women are not to be above man, to rule over him. It also teaches that a family should be as the body of Christ. Only Christ is the head of the church. As such Jesus is the one that has the final say. If families were constructed where both parties are equal as far as leading the family then we would have two individual people that frequently would head in two completely different directions which is what we see in todays world and is the main cause of divorce. For this reason God gave an order to things by placing the man as head of the family. This does not mean that the woman is not equal and has absolutely no say in family matters. As the Bible also teaches us the man is to love his wife. If he truly loves his wife he will listen to her and truly consider her needs and desires in the marriage and will come to decisions that are equitable to all. He is not to be a tyrant or unjust in his decisions but rather to lead with love, consideration and gentle guidance. The woman is the man's helpmate, not his slave. There is a big difference.

The Bible equates a marriage with the body of Christ. In the body of Christ we have one and only one head of the church. The rest of the body all has it's place in achieving one objective. The health, growth and direction of the body, yet each one has a different function within that body.

Churches fail when everyone there attempts to do the same function or when each one goes their own way. This is also true in a marriage/family.


Joh 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
