Women Priests
#19
You know, I fought this battle 40+ years ago in the Anglican Church. There was little or no argument then of there having been women priests in the early Church. The big argument was that Christ had been 'conditioned' by his culture. :LOL: I often pointed out that A) God can't be 'conditioned', and B) that if he had been 'conditioned' he would have enthusiastically ordained women, since his entire world was surrounded by cults with priestesses. Only the small, insignificant sect of Judaism differed. The Church would probably have spread much faster had he 'gone with the flow'.

BTW, I left Anglicanism for Orthodoxy when they 'ordained' women as deacons. I saw that as the opening wedge for women 'priests'. A friend tried to dissuade me from leaving because, 'There would never be women priests'. A few years later, I ran into him in an Orthodox bookshop. He looked at me and said, 'Don't say anything! I know, you told me so.' He, his wife and children, 40+ other families and their pastor had been received en masse into Orthodoxy!
