ORDINATION, PRIESTHOOD, AND WOMEN MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH

In recent times, there has arisen much muddling up and confusion about what ordination to Oversight Presbytery (Priesthood) is, and where women belong in the scheme of ministries in the Church. There is also a mix up on distinctions between authority and ability, between spiritual office and spiritual gift, as well as between spiritual Church and social State. These are mainly because traditional adaptations have gone far in the Church such that scriptural patterns and precepts on these matters are obfuscated. But it is also because trending opinions and perceptions are seeking to revise and modify both original Scriptural institutions and accumulated traditional adaptations. In all, the authority of the Scripture is no longer upheld or sought after.
