Peter Place YM 371 Prof. Ketchum 5/13/2009 Perspective My thoughts of having women being part of leadership or pastoral positions are ones that are in a positive light, rather than a negative one. My thoughts and opinions that are contained within this writing come from a non-denominational background and up bringing. I have the belief that there is absolutely nothing, biblically or morally wrong about having women in leadership or pastoral positions in the church at all. I grew up watching women of God such as the likes of Joyce Meyers or Taffy Dollar. The funny thing that really got me was that it’s perfectly fine to have women as school teachers, but why not in “teaching” or leading in the church? This, by all means does not just resolve to Sunday school teaching. When it comes to certain situations in life, such as public speaking and church leadership, men and women both have their advantages and disadvantages. Every person has their own style for doing things and I think that goes to say since we are all different, it’s good to have different styles and viewpoints. If there happen to be those who say “I don’t like change, I don’t like different points of view”, why is it that those same people will go to another doctor for a 2 nd opinion? I believe that there is and will be certain things that God will reveal only to women and things that he’ll reveal only to men. Men can only reach certain people groups, that women cannot and men cannot reach certain groups that women can.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
