Women Bishops <– LINK
It is incredibly sad to know that topics such as female leadership in church is still disputed even after God repeatedly gives that role to men. What saddens me is not the loss but the dispute itself. It is as if we disputed whether murder is bad! If God gives us a Direct commandment we should follow it. Men and women are created equal in the image of God, yes; but God gave us different characteristics to perform different roles. Women should raise their children in the fear of the Lord, a great and now unappreciated privilege. Men on the other hand are to lead the family as a whole and so should they lead the church. Women are capable of many things, but they are not appointed to all of them. Genesis 3:16 tells her to submit to man. Colossians 3:18 tells wives to submit to their husbands. 1 Corinthians 14:34,35 talks about women learning in silence but being able to teach other women. 1 Timothy 2:12 explicitly prohibits them from teaching men. If there are so many instances for this restrinction on women, why do bishops keep fighting for this “right”? We should always heed God’s orders.
