Ok...here we go..We have another thread in here that deals with women deacons (or not)that has touched...or should I say SLAMMED head on into the subject of women teaching sunday school.It was "off topic" in the other thread so I'll put it to question over here.I do have a personal interest in this topic since it is an issue I have encountered in my own church.I won't give specifics on that just yet or quote any scriptures at this time...I just want to see what everybody individually thinks about it.I will offer my own opinion in a later post and give the scriptural basis for it.For now I'll just frame the topic with a few questions. 1)Should women teach sunday school classes? 2)If so,what age groups should they be teaching? 3)Should a woman EVER be put in the position of teaching an adult man? 4)Should a woman EVER be put in the position of teaching an adolescent male teenager? 5)What is the SCRIPTURAL basis/foundation for any of the above? 6)In what ways CAN any woman scripturally serve the Lord in a local New Testament church? Remember folks..This is NOT a discussion about women being Pastors,Deacons,Elders,or Bishops.It is a discussion about womans rightful GOD-HONORED place of service in His local church.Let's try to stay ON-TOPIC and remember to PRAY BEFORE POSTING!Shoe leather really doesn't TASTE very good. I will say only one thing more for now.It is IMPOSSIBLE for anybody to stand before a group of people for the purpose of teaching the Word of God,and NOT do it with AUTHORITY.The Word of God MUST be taught WITH AUTHORITY.That is part of this issue that figures into the answers about it. Fire away people....but remember to have grace about it...and be nice! Greg Sr.
