Too bad it doesn't apply to this language.

They also had women deacons and ministers---All who served within the church served in the same capacity--servant of God.

Phoebe served the church at Cenchrea in the same capacity that Paul, Apollos, Tychicus, Epaphras, Archippus, and Onesimus did elsewhere. It is possible that not all churches had women diakonos, but some churches like Cenchrea did. 1 Timothy 3:11 seems to imply that Timothy also had women diakonos in his churches.

Every time it's mentioned in the Bible that women should be silent in a church, it is Paul using the word "I". Every time in the Bible when it's stated that in God's eyes that all are equal that we are the same whether male or female--the Bible states God said. Check it out--it's true.
God never stops us from leaning on our own understanding and making mistakes--it's called allowing us our own choices--some would call it free will to screw up.

No respect of persons (by God Himself)----Romans 2:11, Colossians 3:11, 3:25, Galatians 3:28, Ephesians 6:9, 1 Peter 1:17

9 female prophets, 1 Apostle, Phoebe a deacon, minister, servant

Pastors or preachers are shepherds of a flock
Female shepherds---Chloe, Lydia, Mary, Prisca or Priscilla

This ought to give you plenty to study

Yes, this is true. Women who are sent by God have a very important role in the Kingdom. Paul only forbade a woman to teach a mixed assembly but they have roles as Teachers, Evangelists, Apostles and other roles according to God's plan for them. The first woman Evangelist was the woman at the well who went into town and testified of Christ and many were saved because of it.

We tend to think of only the great Aposles written of in Scripture but down through time there have been many more both male and female.

Paul is not God's word.
No matter how many prefer to embrace Paul, rather than Jesus ,it does not change the fact.
Jesus provided the Holy Spirit so that the individual would have tutelage from God just as Jesus said.
Being obedient to God trumps any other form of philosophy or influence one might contrive, including that of Paul.
Paul was an egocentric , compare the beginning of all his letters and that of any other writer.
Prove to God you love Him, and obey Jesus and seek the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.
Leave the arguments of scriptures to the world ,whom are going to compromise them to their own satisfaction any way, just as men did in Jesus time.
Jesus directly instructed the disciples NOT to take titles . Why do you call Him Lord but do not obey Him?

To the one who gave me a quick reputation mark and told me that I was going to hell and that my time was short.

Thank You, you just make me study harder and put out more threads of truth. You and those like you make me God's warrior.

Yeshua Bless You
