    One of the main arguments against the ordination of women is that women are not made in the likeness of Christ. Do not women show Christ like characteristics such as love, compassion, personal concern, nurturing, wisdom and sacrifice? What is essential is Christ’s humanity not his maleness.   Wilson also explores Behr-Sigel’s response to arguments against the ordination of women that are based the assumption that maleness is integral to the priest’s “iconic resemblance to Christ,” which as Wilson notes is now (though not earlier in the tradition) “the decisive [argument] in Orthodox opposition to the ordination of women.

    Luis T. Gutierrez Working Paper, 7 February Summary. A sacrament is an outward and visible sign of an inward and invisible grace. In the sacramental churches, the main obstacle to the ordination of women is the idea that the masculinity of Jesus requires the priest to resemble him as a male. Again, some who favor women’s ordination do so on grounds of merit. Women, they rightly say, are at least as capable as, and many women are superior to, males in the qualities required of good priests. But it is simply bad theology to hold that the priesthood, a gift of God, is to be won by merit. In a similar vein, others hold that it is.

The Ordination of Women and the ‘Maleness’ of the Christ* byJr from Feminine in the Church edited by Monica Furlong published by SPCK, London, pp published on our website with the necessary permission. In her book Like Bread, their Voices Rise (), Sr.

Frances Bernard O'Connor, CSC, shares her interviews with women from Bangladesh, Uganda, and Brazil. Women in all of these countries state that they too feel called to ordination, and believe women should be allowed to exercise priestly leadership.

The book tackles the issues which have to do with whether ordination is by human right or by divine appointment. It’s the maleness of Jesus Christ which feminists question.

For some the. May we consider Jesus’ maleness and why playing fast and loose with XY chromosomes—his or ours—has deadly, devastating effects. Ordination of Women and the Maleness of Christ book Typological Understanding of Jesus’ Maleness.

In Romans 5, Adam is called a ‘type’ of Christ. As the head of humanity, the first Adam typified Christ because he functioned as the covenant mediator. A woman too can act in persona Christi because women and men are equal in Christ.

Being the ‘image of Christ’ both in Scripture and Tradition does not refer to resemblance to Christ’s maleness, but to Christ’s personhood as Child of God. Women too bear Christ's image as adopted children of God. Concerning Women's Ordination: A Letter to an Episcopal Friend (PDF) by Fr.

Alexander Schmemann, previously published in the St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly, Vol. 17, No. 3,pp. ; Thoughts on Women's Ordination by Fr. John Morris (previously published in Word Magazine (January, ) of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese).

Proposition: “Those who support women’s ordination are acting in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council.” Contrary to popular belief, Vatican II did not support the cause for ordaining women.

While many positive statements about equality and the role of female gifts in the Church were made (especially in Gaudium et Spes) no change, explicit or implicit, was made to this effect. egalitarians strongly affirm women ordination.

This article. some complementarians have pointed to the maleness o f Christ in. furtherance of their argument of male headship. For example, opponents of women’s ordination often start by citing St. Paul’s requirement that women be submissive and silent in church (I Tim and I Cor ). Yet this can’t mean utter silence, because Paul honors many women in active ministry, like the deaconess Phoebe (Romans ), and he hails Euodia, Synteche (I Cor Overall, there were several positives to the book.

The essays build the case that the ordination of women is prohibited primarily because of the sola Scriptura position of the Lutheran confession.

Authors point out that the Scriptures themselves prohibit women from serving in the office of pastor. And since God created humankind in his image, male AND female, we can only conclude that women as well as men should be ordained to the priesthood, because femaleness, like maleness, is a fitting symbol (sacramental sign) of Deity.” ― Paul King Jewett, The Ordination of Women: An Essay on the Office of Christian Ministry.

Apparently only women, according to Packer, need to model true discipleship. Packer thus uses Mary as a model exclusively for women. He misreads what Mary’s discipleship meant. He confuses ministry and service on the one hand and ordination on the other.

If ordination is to have any biblical sense at all it is ordination to be a servant. His answer: “When all is said and done, the Lord has not revealed why ” Similarly, Sherri Dew, in her book Women and the Priesthood, writes: “Why aren’t women eligible for priesthood ordination.

[W]e don’t know.” () Priesthood and maleness are no longer synonymous. A coherent response to the question of women's ordination requires a careful understanding of three distinct scriptural principles: the creation and purpose of maleness and femaleness, the doctrine of the Church, and the purpose of the pastoral ministry.

Any theology that speaks to one or two of these but neglects the third is woefully incomplete. If women qua women are fundamentally incapable—and, according to some Christians, even ontologically incapable—of representing the male Jesus Christ in their female persons, then that calls into question whether their female persons can be redeemed by the male Jesus Christ.

With regard to the maleness of Christ, John Paul II writes that “Christ is the Bridegroom. [ ] The symbol of the Bridegroom is masculine”.

He continues to say that Christ. revealed [ ] the dignity belonging to women from the very “beginning” on an equal footing with men.

[ ] Christ’s attitude towards women serves as a model of. The “natural resemblance” to Christ that is needed is not maleness but rather humanness. The ordination of women belongs arguably in this category of new and emerging truths.

Protestants who restrict women from ordination hold reasons that differ from the Roman Catholics and Anglicans who, like Lewis, see the male priest as a symbol of a male Christ. 18 As a traditional Anglican, Lewis espoused a case against women priests similar to that of the present Roman Catholic Church, albeit not identical.

But some women have managed to break into the hierarchy, and even climb to the top. Inthe Episcopal Church's Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori became the first woman to lead an entire branch of the worldwide Anglican Communion. and Rev. Sharon E. Watkins serves as General Minister and President of the Disciples of Christ.

The ordination of women to ministerial or priestly office is an increasingly common practice among some major religious groups of the present time.

It remains a controversial issue in certain Christian traditions and denominations in which "ordination" (the process by which a person is understood to be consecrated and set apart by God for the administration of various religious rites) was.

Those opposed to women's ordination – and, worryingly, many who say they support it – seem to think that this is just about a few ambitious women wanting the pointy hat.
