Assumption 1 - Women cannot "pastor" a Baptist church Assumption 2 - Women can "speak" in a Baptist church Share your thinking in regard to guidelines for said "women speaking" in a church. Please DO NOT debate the two assumptions. We are using them just for basis of discussion. List, of course, any applicable Scripture, unless you are just sucking your theology out of your thumb (as some are wont to do on the Theology Forum!) Is there ANY UNITY in our Baptist tree for all the different "birds"? Looking forward to it!
