Ep 30: What the Bible Says About Women in Ministry with Econ Bro

Summary – What the Bible Says About Women in Ministry with Econ Bro

On this episode, I talk to Econ Bro, a Christian and a libertarian from Nigeria, who runs the excellent Twitter account @TruEconBreau. We had an exchange about women in ministry online, and we agreed that we wanted to have an extended discussion about the issue. Econ Bro takes the position that while women are gifted in many ways, the Bible prohibits them from leading men in church. I take the position that the Bible does allow for women in ministry. We have a thoughtful, friendly, and thorough conversation about the topic. This episode will leave you thinking!
