But the OPs point is, I think, these things are hypocritical. What's the difference between a college, that equips men to preach and church, none. Makes no sense whatsoever.
I was hoping that readers would come to this conclusion for themselves, but perhaps I haven't been as concise as I needed to be.
The point of this thread is that I have seen situations in which men have all the authority in the church and keep saying, "Women can't speak, women can't have authority, women need to ask their husbands," but yet have women as a normal part of their staff to teach ADULT men a portion of their training to become future pastors and leaders (over women)... is, at best, ironic.
And, if it's true that women are not to have authority over men in the church, why do these inconsistencies exist, especially in major church denominations?
I certainly don't have the answers. That's why I rely on the forum members here.
