Steve has written a short piece on women in leadership and as one of the positions stated
But, Steve did not elaborate or go on to address those arguments. For background, WCA's positions are laid out here as an example.Steve wrote:"It is the assertion of the so-called “biblical feminists” and “radical egalitarians” in the church that these obstacles [Paul's statements in 1 Timothy] can indeed be removed (along with the related obstacles posed by 1 Cor.11 and 14). Since some of these people are theologically trained, and present arguments that sound scholarly (read: “true”), it is necessary to look at these claims very carefully in order to decide whether Paul’s instructions in this passage are to be applied in our modern selection of pastors and bishops or not."

They lean heavily on arguments presented well by a woman teacher who I like very much as a teacher/historian -- Sarah Richter. In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpmtq-ZsqC4, she does a very good job and has a very learned and persuasive style. But, if you take each of her stated propositions and consider them (as Steve suggests above), they are riddled with presumptions and assumed assertions which are quite debatable (or even unsupported).
I would love to hear your substantive responses to the arguments supporting women in ministry and also discussion of how one can hold both positions and still call themselves "Traditional."
