Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Another subject I have enjoyed debating is the issue of whether women should be allowed to preach in churches. Most orthodox Christians say no. But the New Testament clearly shows they may. In fact, an entire roster of female preachers appear in the last chapter of Roman.

As for the words "women are to keep silent in the church" - a message repeated twice - you will note that this was only done to two Greek churches. This is because female Christian preachers tried to usurp the pulpit. No surprise given that Greeks in the Gentile days had largely female dominated pagan temples. But female preachers are shown all throughout the NTin many other venues. Thus, women were to be allowed to preach as the Holy Spirit moved them. Same today, contrary to orthodox Christian teaching.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
