That tiresome and irritating slippery slope argument so popular with the complimentarians when discussing gender issues.
The church needs spiritual fathers and mothers in leadership.
The opening sentence of 1 Timothy chapter 3 literally says, “This is a trustworthy saying, ‘If someone aspires to overseeship, he/she desires a noble task.’ ”
Complementarians are Christians who believe that God has instituted certain, specific ways of expressing masculinity and femininity.
Who were Euodia and Syntyche (Philippians 4:2-3)?

I’m already putting my Christmas present, a copy of the Septuagint, to good use.
How does the Septuagint translate “a suitable helper for him”? (Genesis 2:18, 20)
Some Christians believe that it is only men, and not women, who have been given spiritual authority by God. Yet the Bible contains several accounts where God bypassed husbands and male guardians and spoke to women with messages of vital significance. This article will look at a few of these women who received spiritual authority from God; women such as Samson’s mother, Deborah, The Wise Women of Abel Beth Maacah, Huldah, Jeremiah’s Wailing Women, Mary – the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Martha and more.
There is only one verse in the entire Bible which disallows a woman from teaching a man – 1Timothy 2:12. Some Christians see this verse as comprehensively declaring a universal and permanent ban on every woman teaching any man, in almost every conceivable situation, for all time! This view, however, is called into question by another scripture verse which gives the Biblical example of Priscilla who, along with her husband Aquila, explained the doctrine of Christian baptism to Apollos. This article will briefly look at who Priscilla and Aquila were; and it will explore the meaning of the word “explain” used in Acts 18:24-26.
