    I choose all except limited women's ministry classes and teach only children's classes.

    Women should not be offered any classes that promote them teaching men or mixed classes in church. The New Testament consistently prohibits this on the very same basis - not cultural - pre-cultural creation design by God.

    I think we should distinguish between a church context and a school/university context. My view is the the prohibition of women teaching men applies only in a church context.

    After having read the injustice suffered by Ms. Hutchinson at the hands of extremely rigid Puritans, I tend to agree with you, Tom.

    Well, I agree with most of the choices. I just don't agree with women being pastors in the church. I still believe that men should be the leaders. I don't agree with preachers like Joyce Meyer. Women can be great help in children's sunday school, helping out with ladies fellowship, beautifying the church. Especially wife of pastors can be of help by assisting any activity in the church. She can be good in assisting any activity but not preaching and teaching theology. Jesus chose men to lead and help him in his ministry (correct me if Im wrong in my thinking). :thumbsup:

    I think all ministry and leadership positions should be open to women be it church or the academy.

    Yes, you are so wrong I have to wonder if you are deliberately using hyperbole here.

    This post qualifies as ironic.
