Questions and Answers
Some denominations have endured quarrels and divisions over appointing women ministers. For some this has involved forming new churches or even denominations. However, some other denominations feel that their new women ministers have been a real help to them.

So what shall we conclude from the experience of the various denominations?

Seventh-day Adventists don't arrive at truth by asking, “Do Baptists get spiritual help from attending church on Sunday?” We don't ask, “Do Pentecostals feel close to God when they talk in tongues?” We don't ask if Catholics find it meaningful to have a pope and a Virgin Mary.

Seventh-day Adventists ask, “What does the Bible say?” We believe God's best blessings fall on people who choose to obey His revealed will.
