Oh yes, this week in Sunday School, Charlie is going through the Baptist Faith and Message, and he is going to go verse by verse through this passage on why Southern Baptist do not affirm women pastors...should be interesting. I thought I would post a part of my 50 page paper on this issue. You decide what camp you fall under. Wherever you fall, the question we need to ask ourselves is what do we do with this passage....we cannot just throw it out.
"I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."
