The original question was: Can women be pastors and preach in Christian churches, or preach in Sunday services, if they have the appropriate gifts, talents and skills? The New Testament says all people are to use their spiritual gifts. Wasn’t it just the culture of previous times that has kept women out of church leadership? […]
