Question: Should women be allowed to preach or teach in church services or not? Also, please explain the Scripture that says, 'your sons and daughters shall prophesy' Acts 2:17 paying close attention to the word prophesy and also explain what Paul meant when he said I allow not a women to teach nor usurp authority over the man but to remain silent 1 Timothy 1:9-15 is Paul saying that women should not preach not teach in the local assembly. I know that no scriptures authorizes women to be elders but can the preach or teach the men and other members of the congregation. I sure would want to know the biblical truth of this topic.

Answer: All of your questions are answered in our article called 'The Role of Women in the Local Assembly,' which can be found on Shelf 4 of the Apostolic Free Library on this website.
