Hello, Men and women of God,

How are you doing? Hopefully you and your family and in good health, smiling and enjoying life in Christ.

I'd love to get your feedback on this.

PLEASE NOTE: What I 'think' (whether it be yes or no means nothing). I don't live off opinion and I don't expect people to live off mine. When it comes to bible, then the opinion is fine because All scripture is inspired by God. 2 Timothy 3:16

My question is SCRIPTURALLY, is it permitted for a women to be a Pastor in the church? 

I could really care less to hear the 'men won't take their place so God puts a woman there' ...because that's ridiculous..there are many men of God doing His work. In fact, there are some men who may even go to early which and that can be seen how the Gospel is handled by them and their maturity concerning submitting and resisting the flesh (That's another topic).

The fact is God is the same yesterday, today and forever...and I believe that His ways are final regardless of what the 'Norm' or what's popular is and I don't want to be out of line in my belief system.

Whether a man wouldn't take his place or not, God doesn't change His word and who He is. I've heard it said that, "If a female pastor bears fruit, they don't have anything to say". .. as if she doesn't its not OK..that seems like riding the fence to me and I believe on being definitive. My question would be..what do you view as fruit? People joining a church or building a community center on the back of the building. fruit is how well you line up with this scriptures with your life which then displays itself. When you are obedient to the Spirit of God, you can do nothing BUT bear fruit. God will will steer us the wrong way.

Yes, God used a donkey..that doesn't mean, I will let a donkey be my pastor. Also please do not use references to all the women who prophesied or preached..as that is not that same as pastoring (Leading and Guiding the sheep).

My SCRIPTURAL belief is that yes, a woman can be a pastor as long as she has a Bishop as her covering (1 Timothy 3:2-7..as a woman can not obviously have a wife and be pleasing to God...I also see in the new International version that is says Overseer and not Bishop (And overseer can mean pastor)...yet I refer to King James for definitive truths as I believe some translations can get a little sidetracked..because a mayor and a governor both oversee, yet they have different roles, so I think Bishop is there for a reason...to specify)......hence if she had a Bishop she would not be exercising total authority over a man. 

Yes, the Word say that there is neither male nor female and that we are all one in Christ Jesus (Galations 3:28), yet the order of AUTHORITY that God has set in order never changes. What's next? We'll be above Jesus? or the Wife above the husband? or the ushers telling the pastors what to do? We can't get besides ourselves when it comes to Gods Authority.

I don't ever come off to know everything..at least I hope I don't, and I am open to hear SCRIPTURALLY, your view on this.

Note: Please capitalize G for God and J for Jesus. I believe we should Give God respect in all we do.

Thank you for your time,
Timothy 'BliSs' Jones

1Timothy 2:9-14 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Hi Hezekiah, I have seen this used as well. Do you also believe then that its wrong for women to wear pearls or gold or expensive clothes and braided hair? I personally would think that was speaking to women as a whole and not at that time for a reason (of maybe some were placing too much focus on their outward appearance) that we'd have to do it all and not part as the Gospel is not to be pieced together to fit what we want and don't want. In a gist, I'd have to take into account of why this was written and to whom...these are just my thoughts. What do you say about the pearls, gold, expensive clothes and braided hair?
Do you also believe then that its wrong for women to wear pearls or gold or expensive clothes and braided hair? The Lord doesn't say it is wrong, but women are not to be concerned with that..

What do you say about the pearls, gold, expensive clothes and braided hair? I don't have an opinion because it is not false to wear those things, and I don't want to judge from my own heart, lest I be judged...
Ok, just didn't have an understanding how that scripture could be used if we did not abide by it all. I'll just wait for more answers. Thanks anyway.
Thank you, but the question is not about preaching which is very different than Pastoring as addressed in the question. thanks again though. Also, He has setup His will in His Word, its not about us, but about us listening to what He said and if He placed Authority in the earth, then we must follow all bible and not just the parts we want. Thanks agian.
Forgive me, but I think that this is funny. I plan to reply soon, just not right now, have to complete another project I'm working on, but please stay tuned.

Love ya for the question!
Looking forward to your response. No problem.. In love here also.
Personally, I have seen women Pastor churches and I believe women can be a spiritual in church and outside of church as well.
Thank you, yet we are asking for Scriptural references and not opinions. Thanks again Brother.
Thank you for the response, but sounds like you did not read the post. I asked for scriptural proof...not opinions.

God has ordained order other wise he would not have placed it in His word..sadly, because many people choose themselves, we need to make sure order is followed...and not try to be spiritual about practical things.

If God didn't want things done in a specific way, He would not have wrote them specifically.

This is what we're discussing ma'am. not opinions. Thank you
Good Post Brother Timothy.. Way to stand on the word, and get rid of imagination in this thread..
I agree with every word of what you wrote here!!!
There is nothing more to add.
