    So maybe there are female pastors if you go by Ephesians 4 the five apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher.

    I've had one and she was the best pastor I've ever had.

    What is a Pastor when a female shepherd is a shepherdess?

    I don't think that's a question. Did you want to ask if she should be called a Pastorette?

    I don't know that I could think that. I guess I want to know if a Pastor is only a male, like a shepherd.

    That might be the word. I searched for that word on Google. No definition.

    If the Eternal Almighty had appointed females to be pastors He would have given us the female pronouns so as to prevent any confusion.He didn't so there is no confusion.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    I believe that you are saying that the word pastor is masculine.

    The term pastor is from Old French and is a term the translators used instead of shepherd which is masculine. It (pastors) appeared in the Latin Bible and was then used in English.

    It is interesting looking for pastor and shepherd in the Bible.

    Genesis 29:9 NASB - While he was still speaking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she was a shepherdess.

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.

    Yes Jacob, as you have found, shepherd allows the male/female distinction whereas pastor does not.

    Except that there was a word for the female of pastor, unless pastor is not even masculine.

    Pastor is a mistranslation.


    And indeed, he gave some, apostles;
    and some, prophets;
    and some, evangelists;
    and some, shepherds and doctors;
    12 for the perfecting of the holy
    to the work of the ministry
    to the edifying of the body of the Messiah:
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    A lot of meanings were changed when translated. Many words that conveyed the same meaning were not present in English.
