I know this one has been debated many times before. However, I am currently debating this with some Methodist friends in my community. I am of the view that woman are not to be pastors. This has created some debate to say the least. But the biggest thing I keep getting from the other side are passages about God not being a respector of persons...."Jew nor Greek, male nor female, etc". But can this apply? Do verses like these make it ok for a woman to pastor? I also got hit with verses about prophecy. But again I ask can these passages apply? Just because believers are commanded to proclaim the good news does that mean that woman can pastor?
