cyneswith:  It is not biblical for women to never hold authority over men. The Jewish Torah and tradition records Queens who held power over the tribes and women Prophets (Devorah, Channah, Sarah and 4 others). People of influence have interpreted the texts to mean somethings they don’t say. That is interpretations, not revealed word. There is no direct word in the text denying women authority. Most religious leaders I’ve ever listened to twist the words of David, Solomon, Moses and Jerimiah (and everyone else) to mean whatever they want. People with a straight face used the bible to defend slavery when it is clearly forbidden backwards and forwards by Jeremiah.

  • Wedding: March 2016

Me and my Fiance just started attending church again a year or two ago. I was raised Irish Catholic and he was raised Lutheran. The church we attend now is non-denominational and somewhat progressive.  I know ALL my families weddings when I was a child were in the Catholic church and there was DEFINITELY dancing (and drinking lol). 

We attended a wedding of some friends of ours last year and our current pastor and his wife were there, and they were on the dancefloor doing the cupid shuffle lol.

I may not be the best person to comment on this, as like I said, I just started attending church regularly a year or two ago, but I couldn’t fathom NOT celebrating the UNION of a couple by dancing! As long as people aren’t bumping and gridning all over the place, what’s the hurt in doing the cupid shuffle or YMCA? LOL

In the Bible, people danced all over the place and to the Lord.

David even danced naked.

Much of Psalms talk about dancing and how it’s a good and wonderful thing to celebrate what is good.

I am not sure why your Pastor would try to enforce this.
