NOTE AND DISCLAIMER
Survey is not in any way sponsored by Seventh-day Adventist
Church. It is a survey created by Council for
Family Research (CFR), Nassau, The Bahamas (Barrington
& Annick Brennen,
Co-presidents) to try and ascertain the true feelings of
Adventist members and leaders around the world regarding
women being ordained to the gospel ministry. The
General Conference leaders announced in April 2010 that
eight of the world's twelve Divisions are not in favor of
ordaining women to the gospel ministry. Is this really
Some who are
against women being ordained to the gospel ministry are
arguing that "the majority should not determine theology."
Note that the real reason we do not have women being
ordained is because it is argued that "the majority" do not
support ordaining women as pastors.
It is the
CFR that the majority of
Adventist believers around the world support women being
ordained as pastors or at least would support the decision
of church to ordain women even if they personally are not in
favor of it.
As of May 4,
2012, a total of 89% of the respondents to this survey do
support women being ordained as pastors (76% + 13%).
Take the survey and let us see the
results of what the majority says. We need at least
15,000 more votes from around the world.
