Question of the day: women pastors or deacons.

So what does the Bible really say…?

Most IFB’s have extremely strong opinions regarding this topic (myself included). But I’ve also noticed that alot of “modern” or “reformed” female bloggers have their own very strong opinions on this subject.

I’m especially interested in hearing from the women on this one…

Use Scripture to back your opinions. Please. and thank you.

Here’s this week’s QOTD…

What do you believe about ordaining women as pastors or deacons?

  1. What are YOUR opinions on the subject? 😉

    Have you heard of Mars Hill Church? A megachurch ran by influential pastor and speaker Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill practises what is know as complementarianism when it comes to the role of women not just in church, but in the home as well. Basically, it is the idea that men and women have separate but complementary roles in terms of home life, and teaching / preaching. The definition is not universal and you’ll find more hard-liners in other places. At Mars Hill, women can serve as deacons but not in higher positions.

    This contrasts with a more egalitarian type of marriage and church role where women may have equal footing in any setting they see fit to pursue.

    Frankly, I think the only reason Christians are forced to have this conversation is due to the obvious and permeating misogyny in the Bible. Now, most Christians will disagree and feel misogyny is too strong a word. The fact remains, however, that there is much contention regarding the role of women in the church (but not the role of men).

    I just take the position that men and women are wholly equal. Pretty simple.
