"Or as Stott himself put it: "Why should it be thought inappropriate for women to exercise such servant leadership? They have done so throughout biblical history". The New Testament is now complete, and all Christian teachers are called to teach humbly under its authority. If then a woman teaches others, including men, under the authority of Scriptures (not claiming any authority of her own), in a meek and quiet spirit (not throwing her weight about), and as a member of a pastoral team whose leader is a man (as a contemporary cultural symbol of masculine headship), would it not be legitimate for her to exercise such a ministry, and be commissioned (ordained) to do so, because she would not be infringing the biblical principles of masculine headship?" Precisely. So I would not only welcome Beth Moore to teach/preach at Meck, I would be in the front row, taking notes." -- James White
Stott cannot produce one biblical example of women teaching men with authority in the church. It just simply does not exist. The fact that he would be taking notes from such a renowned false teacher however speaks to the discernment of James White. Just like the discernment of the AG pastor with forty years experience is also very suspect. You can climb on your Facebook soapbox all day long but you will answer to Christ for the people you led into obvious disobedience. Doesn't matter how long you pastored in a now heresy filled Assemblies of God.
