Today we listen to a message from Pastor Joe Schimmel about what the word has to say about women’s roles in the body of Christ and whether women are permitted in scripture to be pastors.

“A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.”
–1 Timothy 2:11-15 (NASB)
