May Women Be Pastors/Elders ?

Pastors (elders) are leaders/overseers over the congregation (Acts 20:17,28, I Peter 5:1-2).

The Bible PRECLUDES a woman from taking on this leadership role:

• I Corinthians 11:3 the head of the woman is the man

• Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

• I Timothy 2:11-12 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

• I Timothy 3:2 "A bishop then must be … the husband of one wife" – (because it is a leadership role) – Can a woman be a husband ?

Conclusion: The woman’s role is not the leader of the congregation.
