This was posted by Jerome on the Baptist history forum but I couldn't answer it because it was off topic and were told to discuss this elsewhere. I am not sure what he is quoting here. Jerome, none of these examples support having a woman as pastor. No one is saying women cannot give the gospel, be missionaries, witness, etc. The issue is: Can women have authority over men in the church? If so, they would be able to be pastors or elders. I think the Bible clearly says no.
