Women should not Teach Men

Scott writes,

I’m not going to spell out all my biblical and theological reasons. Rather I’ll point you to my plethora of posts here.

Oh good, because the last thing I need to hear are facts and an honest discussion. Nope. I don’t care about context, or the original languages, or history or anything. I want to be able to read my bible and see what it tells me (which, ironically enough is everything that I believed already).

But, Scott does have an interesting story to tell:

Women Teaching Men | The Prodigal Thought.

I am not for experientionalism or whatever it is called that doesn’t put a red, squiggly line under the word that I am trying to use to mean that I don’t like doctrine by experience.

But in my own experience, I did not burst into flames or have a meltdown the first time I ‘sat under’ a woman teacher, which is odd given that ever other (theological-praxis) change brought that sort of meltdown

  1. Joel –

    Thanks for the ping back, but I am not sure if you are challenging me or not, or if you are challenging me, how? Sorry, I can easily miss things. :)
