Question, do you support women as elders? By the way, that Genesis passage seems to indicate that there was a belief among at least some Jews that God is both male and female.Just showing how God uses women in His ministry. Men deny them, but God approves of them. Scripture is very masculine, but yet both man and woman.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Genesis 1:27).
Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created" (Genesis 5:2).
It is interesting to note that God called both male and female, "Adam" in the day they were created. Adam means "man." Adam and Eve were created with God-ordained differences from each other, but together they made a full "man," or a complete picture of God Himself. There was perfection in their union. Their differences were not a source of discord or inequality, but a beautiful compliment to each other. Together, God gave them the task of overseeing His creation.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth" (Genesis 1:28).
Notice that God gave the above commission to them both. There is no hint that there was anything but equal authority between man and woman.
