Should women hold the position of a Bishop or a Deacon? This question relates directly to the believer's gender-role. There are those who would suggest that we don't have gender-roles anymore, if we ever did. And others who would say that we do, both within the Church and believing home.
Having to deal with this issue myself, and knowing little of it... I decided to study the subject and this video is the result of that study, of which I have made available for your consideration
I would not be so bold as to suggest that I am an authority on the topic, or that I only have the correct interpretation. No, I merely offer my findings for your consideration... I expect you to test and challenge them. If you find them scripturally sound, well and good... but if not please feel free to use them as a basis to debunk my findings.
I put my views forward to edify the Church, the Bride of Christ and if they encourage debate... great. I only ask the viewer to holds-fast to scripture... and let neither tradition, feelings nor your personal experiences play any part in your final decision.
And let us who believe remember... that not only is the battle very real, but our adversary too. This issue matters, so let us not trivialise it.
