Chapter 4: Headship, Submission, and Equality in Scripture

Answers to Questions About Women's Ordination

What is at stake is the authority of the Bible for defining SDA beliefs and practices. The New Testament expresses its teaching on the role of women in the church in theological terms, basing it on interpretation of earlier Bible passages. It is presented as part of God's "law” and as “a command of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 14:34, 37). 0. The Campaign for Women's Ordination.

By Samuel Koranteng-Pipim, PhD Director, Public Campus Ministries, Michigan Conference Introduction In Part 1, we called attention to the unfortunate tendency by advocates of women’s ordination to trivialize discussions on the subject, by relegating the issue to one’s cultural preference, rather than to one’s fidelity to Scripture. In this second part of our discussion, we shall look at a carefully laid-out political strategy by church leaders in North America to domesticate the unbiblical practice of ordaining women as elders or pastors.

--Part 1 BySamuel Koranteng-Pipim, Ph.D.Director, Public Campus Ministries, Michigan Conference Introduction Regardless of one’s position on women’s ordination, this one fact is incontrovertible: Ordaining women as elders or pastors is new light which the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist church is being urged to embrace.[1] For more than 100 years, Adventists have been unanimous in their view that no precedent for the practice of ordaining women can be found in Scripture, nor in the writings of Ellen G.

Does the Bible Support Ordaining Women As Elders or Pastors? --Part 3 BySamuel Koranteng-Pipim, Ph.D.Director, Public Campus Ministries, Michigan Conference Introduction In parts 1 and 2 of this article, we looked at how proponents of women's ordination keep changing their arguments and, in view of these evolving arguments, we identified some crucial theological issues at stake in the ongoing debate.

One of the key issues concerns whether or not the Bible prescribes gender roles and when such roles, if any, were instituted. This question concerns the "headship principle," the view that God calls upon men to exercise spiritual leadership roles in their homes and churches and holds them accountable if they default in their responsibility. 1.

Does the Bible Support Ordaining Women As Elders or Pastors? --Part 4 BySamuel Koranteng-Pipim, Ph.D.Director, Public Campus Ministries, Michigan Conference Introduction In the previous discussions (parts 1, 2, and 3), we looked at: (i) the evolving (and sometimes conflicting) arguments for women's ordination, (ii) what the key issues are (and are not) in the debate over women's ordination, and (iii) what the Bible teaches about gender-role differentiation between men and women, when such a role distinction originated (whether at Creation or Fall), and whether it is still applicable today.

The issues addressed in (iii) above concern spiritual leadership or headship in the home and the church. In this present article, we shall attempt to explain why the Bible gives no evidence of women priests in the Old Testament, nor women apostles, elders or pastors in the New Testament. 2.

They observed that, despite the significant role of women in ministry, women were not ordained as priests in the Old Testament. Also, though women made major contributions to the ministry of Christ, He did not appoint a single one of them as an apostle; further, when a replacement apostle was sought (Acts 1:15-26), even though women were present and surely met most of the requirements set (vv. 21, 22), it was a male who was chosen. 2.

If Galatians 3:28 does not abolish all role distinctions among Christians, then what does this passage say?

Is it true that Paul's argument about the priority of Adam's creation (“For Adam was formed first, then Eve,” 1 Timothy 2:13) is faulty because it is based on the wrong Creation account (Genesis 2 instead of Genesis 1) and because it attaches significance. Does 1 Timothy 2:12 really forbid all kinds of teaching and speaking by women in the church?
