The Louisville, Kentucky-based Southern Baptist Theological Seminary unanimously approved a resolution last week affirming its stance that only men can be pastors — thus defining women pastors like Beth Moore, Paula White, and Joyce Meyer as unqualified and invalid. SBTS trustees passed the resolution at their fall meeting last week. The resolution affirms the stance made by SBTS president Albert Mohler, who helped craft the Baptist Faith & Message 2000, which is the SBC’s official statement of faith. The resolution comes after Saddleback Church, which is among the largest churches in the SBC, ordained three women in May 2021 despite the Baptist Faith & Message 2000 stating that the “office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.”
