This has become very controversial in the last century. We do find it suspect that America has seen a large population of Churches where apparently the gift of preaching and teaching is equally given to the Pastor and his wife. What are the chances of that?
This is a good short treatment of 1 Timothy 2:12. John Piper does a great job of explaining what Paul means in this controversial passage. Once again, we ask that you listen to this from a theological perspective and not a secular one. As Christians, we all (men and women) want to be obedient to the will and purposes of God. His ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8) and it is our duty to be diligent and honest in the interpretation of scripture in light of God’s divine order in life.
