"God has set it up that women are designed to be physically and spiritually nurturers of their children," and this, Strachan stressed, is the most important work in the world.
He referred to I Chronicles 12, when King David consulted with the heads of tribes after becoming king.
Strachan differentiated strongly between leading a church (an exclusively male role) and discipling a fellow Christian (not exclusive).
Bishop Jackson, meanwhile, stated: "I don't exclude women from preaching or leadership or higher administrative role.
He, too, emphasized the importance of male leadership in the home, but argued that this leadership can take many forms for the good of the whole.
Wisdom in leading the home under God is the man's primary responsibility, the pastor explained.
The Value of Women's Work The theologian insisted that a woman's work at home is not less valuable, however.
