There are men in the church who exalt themselves over women and see nothing wrong with that despite the example Christ gives us regarding the role of a husband. The constant bickering about female elders have been given too much attention because of our own prejudices. Many are quick to quote “the HUSBAND of one WIFE” as an indication that an elder must be a man. The Bible also states “thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife.” Does it mean we can covet our neighbors husband? Please look at the historical background of the women in Corinth when Paul was speaking. Should we all be wearing hats and have long hair? Let us allow the Holy Spirit to use and guide us and do not attempt to tell God who He can or cannot use.
