What does the Bible really say?
Hey Pastor Josh,
Thanks for spending time to focus on this debate. I just forwarded it to a co-worker whose church is going through some very difficult conversations on this exact topic. With so much context and historical evidence that can easily be missed by taking passages in isolation, I really hope your work will help open their hearts to see things the way you have presented them here. I’m so glad that ELC does view things the way we do!!!
This was so good. I never knew all of the history and reasons churches resisted putting women in leadership or why even in some situations women were to not speak into situations. Wow! So interesting! I am learning so much!
I've never had a clear understanding of these words, but you lay out the case for women in the church rather well. Your rationale makes sense! I'm thankful for the women God has placed blessing on as leaders for His Kingdom.
