DEACONS

  Are women permitted to be deacons   (35 KB)   
Because of the feminist movement in our culture our perception of male and female roles has been altered. The Scriptures (which we are being told are archaic) establish a role which is not politically correct.

Can a woman be an official deacon   (41 KB)   
Phebe is referred once as a servant and there is not sufficient evidence to doubt that her service was primarily serving the female members of her church. She would certainly have opened her home to itinerant believers, as Paul says of himself, but to give her a status of government in the church is to read in it more that what it says. To make much of her presumably taking the letter is not proving anything but practicality, for in those perilous times an old woman like Phebe would have had a better chance to get there that a man, but there is no absolute evidence that she actually did that.
