1. Is she called to minister full time too? no, other than to be a help to her husband

2. must she attend all church services? she should

3. Must she serve more than other wife's, members? she should be an example, which we all are supposed to be anyway

4. Can she be a leader at all? She can teach other women and children

5. Do you expect more from her being the pastor wife and why? see #3

6. If she have no kids, can this be a problem for you? no

8  Here a good one, can she wear pants? Not if she is wife to a Biblical, godly pastor who has his family in order

7. Makeup ? Why not?

9. Can she be fat? I guess, if she happens to have a weight problem

10. She cannot be to skinny? Why, unless she's anorexic/bulimic, in which case she might need medical attention.

1. No

2. No more than all other members should.
3. Ditto.

4. As appropriate to her gender. Her husband's position has nothing to do with it.
5. Probably, but we shouldn't.

6-8. None of our business.

9-10. Ditto - and can you say rude?!?

Titus 3:9
King James Version (KJV)
9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

 

Probably applies to many of OB threads

None of my questions do not fall under the law? Might be vain for some. Speacialy Democrats

No. That verse is not a command to have children, but rather to make sure that, if God gives children, they are under control.

I disagree.

1 Timothy 3:1 (KJV) 1 This [is] a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

1 Timothy 3:2 (KJV) 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Timothy 3:3 (KJV) 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Timothy 3:4 (KJV) 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

1 Timothy 3:5 (KJV) 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Timothy 3:6 (KJV) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

1 Timothy 3:7 (KJV) 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Paul did not say "if he has children,".

Yes, I know you disagree. But that doesn't make you right.  :bleh:  Paul did not say "having children that they must have in order to be qualified because we all know this is going to be a point of contention in the future" either.

Titus 1:5 (KJV) 5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

Titus 1:6 (KJV) 6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

Titus 1:7 (KJV) 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

Sorry, but titus clearly says they must have children

Sorry, but no he doesn't.  "having faithful children" is not the same as "you have to have children".  The meaning is clear: if you have children, they need to be in control.

 

This is such a silly argument (brawling can also be arguing, not just physical...).  God calls men. And God opens or closes the womb.  He has called many men to whom He has not given children.  And I know you will say that they weren't truly called...but that puts you on a plane with God. And you ain't there, any more than the rest of us.

Let's REALLY stir the pot on the children issue ---- if she had 2 miscarriages and one child who died at 16 months of age and is now sterile, do they have 3 faithful children who are in subjection? Or is he not qualified for not having any children?

Allow me to play devils advocate for a sec.......

 

1 Timothy 3:4 (KJV) 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
1 Timothy 3:5 (KJV) 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

How is a single guy going to know how to "rule his own house" and thereby know how to take care,,,,,etc. if he has no one there to "rule".? But then, again. a single man who is able to discipline himself alone, is much better than a man unable to lead a "brawling woman" and "unruly kids" no?
