If the words of men like Paige Patterson (President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary), and many others like him are true, then I see a dilemma of the greatest proportion in my being able to cling to the words of Scripture and view them as having veracity: let me elaborate. Paige Patterson is one among many fundamentalist preachers who assert that a women’s place is first and foremost a Mother and Grandmother, if one holds that to be true then is can be equally asserted that a mans place if first and foremost a Father and Grandfather. God created men and women with an equal capacity to pursue knowledge and an equal desire to fulfill their God given potential whatever that may be. Who do these men think they are to stand in judgment over what a women’s role should be and what her potential is?

If God can appoint a woman to be Judge over Israel (Judges 4 & 5), but men such as Paige Patterson cannot suffer a woman to “teach a man”! What is wrong with this picture?

Deborah: Judge of Israel

Judges 4:4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.

The potential to fulfill the desires of our hearts is something God has place within each one of us….be it man or woman, and what right has a man to stand up in the position of God and deem how a woman should fulfill that desire.
