Can women be pastors, ministers, priests or rabbis?

1 Timothy 1 Point EBCMODESTO.COM
Correct! Wrong!

Explanation: No they cannot and those who go against God's order are living in sin. Know-where in the bible does it state women were ordained pastors, priests, rabbis or head of the church. Furthermore, none of the 12 disciples Jesus chose were women. Scripture makes it clear that women are not to have spiritual authority over men. The clear implication is that women are not to serve in any role which involves the authoritative spiritual teaching of men. By this definition, the role of teaching pastor/shepherd is reserved for men. This is confirmed in the two passages which deal specifically with the qualifications for church leadership. Church leaders are described as the "husband of one wife," "a man whose children believe," and "men worthy of respect."

Paul does not expect that women will not or can not learn or teach (compare with Titus 2:3-5 and 2 Tim. 1:5; 3:14,15). He simply states that they cannot teach or have authority over men. Thus, they cannot have a pastoral position, or perform the pastoral function, for that puts them in authority over men. Women are encouraged to teach other women (Titus 2:3-5). Women are nowhere restricted from teaching children. Women seem to excel, far beyond men, in some of the spiritual gifts and fruit of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5:22-23).
Remember, Women being restricted from spiritual teaching authority over men is not a punishment. Rather, it is a refocusing to the ministries, skills, and gifts God with which blesses women. Women are held in high honor for their unique and significant contribution to the advancement of Christ's kingdom, and the building of godly homes should be esteemed for its vital contribution to developing personal Christian character and Christlike concern for others. Women are not less than man, God has simply given us different roles.

    @Joe- if you are referring to what Paul said in 1 Timothy 2, he did not mean women cannot speak in church. Just that they cannot preach or have authority over men. That doesn’t mean that we can’t witness to others. That doesn’t mean that we can’t teach children. That doesn’t mean that we can’t teach other women. Priscilla and her husband did teach someone the way of God more accurately in their home. Did they contradict Scripture? No.
