    “ Great Sermon! ”
    This a brief but extremely helpful message for any Church. It both honours the Word of God and yet graciously maintains a positive tone for women. Despite what may prove a disappointment for some women already in an office for which they have no warrant to be, it should help them to graciously reconsider their position!

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    My question is: Whose report will you believe? That of man...of the Word of God. If the scriptures forbid it...then that's the report to believe. Man's authority is not higher than the Word of God.

    They *can*. Christian women have the *ability* to minister, counsel, encourage, teach and rebuke -- in effect pastor. The real question is *may* they be pastors?

    Amen! This is the biblical answer!

    Thank you Pastor Cairns for addressing this issue from the Bible and not from (y)our emotions. Women can be a lot of things in the Church Body, but being a pastor is strickly forbidden. Women who claim to be pastors are not ordained of God, but of men. God Bless you Brother. IHS, David Thiel
