Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

Are you looking for something more than Paul's "I do not permit a woman to teach (1 tim 2:12)," or do you need something more in depth like Patristic commentary on Scripture to back that interpretation up?

Welcome to C.SE. This is interesting information, and forms the nucleus of a good answer, but it doesn't actually answer the question being posed.

Welcome to C.Se. This answer could be improved by fixing the grammar and quoting others more.

What makes you assume that a prescription he gave to one person applies to everyone equally?
