I think GsusFrk nailed it. Just because this idea is hard to grasp and completely unpopular in our society doesn't make it acceptable to ignore. That's not at all what God instructs. I think you're taking scripture and twisting it to suit your viewpoint. Women are essential to the role of God's work, as are men, but they are used in different ways. We cannot allow ourselves to get caught up in which role is better or worse, they're all equally important. If a woman believes that her calling is to be the pastor of a church, I would have to wonder if it's her pride or God's plan that led here there...I'm going to give God the benefit of the doubt. The same goes true with many men...there are TONS of pastors that have not been genuinely called, but do so because they want the glory.
