Ordination of Women and Paul
To claim that Paul in his epistles was sometimes immature or inconsistent because of the influence of his rabbinic training undermines the authority of the Scriptures and assumes that an intelligent man like Paul was incoherent at times.

It makes more sense to believe that Paul saw no tension between oneness in Christ (Galatians 3:28) and the functional subordination of women in the church (1 Timothy 2:12-15; 1 Corinthians 11:2-16; 14:33-35). This tension is not in Paul nor in the Bible, but in the minds of modern critics.
