However, there is evidence of female deacons in the early church such as Phoebe who was a "deaconess" in Cenchreae, which probably implies an officially designated role (Romans 16:1 RSV), though the term literally means "servant," and "helps" is a spiritual gift.
The debate over women's eligibility for such offices normally centers around interpretation of certain Biblical passages relating to teaching and leadership roles.
Half of which included the pastor and those that agreed with the practice, and the rest that didn’t.
It was that argument with both sides bringing up scriptures to justify their position.
he controversial question of whether or not it’s right for women to pastor churches or co-pastor with their husbands has come up again. What prompted this study was when a prominent, well-loved and respected pastor by me and many others came out and said that he supported the practice of women pastors.
So I did another study to be sure if my view aligned with God’s.
Christian culture is like any other in that we develop truisms that we accept without verifying.In those 300-plus comments, all I saw was a back-and-forth about what the Bible says.But no one talked about the dangers of this practice and the end effect on the human soul. First off, I’m not against women teaching other women or children.You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
