I enjoyed your article on females in leadership
. I understand that women were not to lead men or teach according to scripture God's word. However how do u explain to other women that are in leadership, when they see names in the bible like Deborah the prophetess, Miriam the prophetess, Anna the prophetess and their were two others? When women read about these women they think they have a relevant argument that these women were in leadership and lead or taught men. Please give me insight?

This is an good question. I am thankful to hear you enjoyed our article
The Scriptures show a subtle, but important distinction between the "leadership" that these godly women offered and that offered by godly men. If you have not already, would you mind looking at these forum posts, where similar questions were raised?
If these do not answer your questions, or if you see something that I overlooked, I would be glad to hear back from you.
Please let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
