 That was a really informative site. I read what it said about women teaching in the church. Our church allows this , under a mans authority. Our denomination allows women pastors...not so in God's word. Outside the formal church setting, women may be evangelist. The Samaritan woman in John 4, and Mary Magdalene sent to the apostles.   Jesus was kinder to women then were the religious leaders. In the church as in the home, the woman is to be in a supportrng role.They complete the man, NOT compete with the man. Pontius Pilate's wife received a dream about not to be against Jesus.  

 Mat 27:19  When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

I see the church as a reflection of the home. The man is supposed to lead, the woman is to be a help-meet and raise the children. She has the greatest influence on her children and grandchildren.   Women are equally gifted and may do anything a man does outside of the formal church setting. But, in truth, most of the soul winning and teaching is outside the church context. In meeting places, in homes, in the streets, in schools, wherever the gospel and word can be taught. Jesus loved the women and liberated them, but the church and home are to follow the patterns set down in God's word.  Gary
