Yes, Women Have Souls, and No, They Need Not be Pastors (Off-site Highlights)

Have you ever stood up in a room full of liberals and expressed the opinion that God has given women a familial and societal role in life that is different from the role given to men?

It would be awkward.

Here are two articles that address some of the counter-arguments that might be flung at you.

In "The Myth of Soulless Women," Michael Nolan addresses a few specific historical anecdotes behind myths about early church misogyny. The story of how a joke became a myth is a fascinating tidbit.

In her Open Letter to Dr. Matthew Becker, published in Logia, Kaitlyn Nowak (who is a student both of science and theology) addresses the duel claim that the denial of the pastoral office to women is a sign of their oppression, and that scientific evidence debunks the Genesis account upon which this denial is partly based. Kaitlyn's letter is extremely well put and well worth your time.

We love knowing what thoughts and ideas this article sparked. Please leave comments, but do remember Luther's explanation of the eighth commandment, and "put the best construction" on the intentions of the author and other readers.
