    Can women be missionaries, and even be seminary professors/teachers, as well as theologians/authors of biblical materials?

    Know that the Bible prohibits them as teachers/pastors in a local church, does that mandate apply elsewhere or not?

    I don't know it all depends on the interpretation. I don't think the Bible speaks on this matter so it's up to liberty and wisdom. At BJU and IFB churches a woman cannot be a seminary teacher nor a missionary by herself.

    Many Baptists allow for female missionaries though, as well as them able to write theological works such as cemmentaries, so where does it end the prohibition?

    Could it be restricted to a local assembly itself?

    Tell me, Yeshua1, just how do you prohibit a woman who is so inclined from writing and publishing a commentary?

    No.

    Please use spellcheck or proof-read.

    So the prohibition would apply to women teaching/pastoring in a local assembly, but would be all right to be missionaries, or on staff at a seminary, or else good to write text books?
