The recent controversy over CPH’s new essays on the Large Catechism has caused some to ask whether it is appropriate for women to publicly teach official doctrine to the church. Some may argue directly from divine revelation to answer this question. Others might argue, from a sort of natural-law perspective informed by Scripture, that there is an ontological difference between men and women which makes it appropriate for men, but not women, to write the kind of essays newly attached to the catechism. Mark Preus’ recent article has jump-started the conversation on the first kind of argument; I would like to do the same thing for the second kind.

A recent Twitter thread by Jordan Cooper questions whether the expression “ontological difference” is helpful here. He argues that it is not, holding that the question of ontological difference between men and women is, by and large, “only asked by people who are not philosophers.” While he concedes that there is an essential difference (not merely a societal or cultural one) between men and women, he says that the term “ontological difference” in particular, at least without clarification, implies that men and women “are not two parts of the same category that is ‘human being’.”

There are many powers of the soul: rational, emotional, and vegetative (e.g., the power to digest). However, these powers do not just flow from the soul itself; they also flow from particular physical organs which the soul informs. The soul’s power to feel love, for example, flows in part from the endocrine system that the soul informs. The soul’s power to think flows in part from the brain that the soul informs. So too for the organs informed by the soul’s proper accident of gender. Unlike our skin color, these organs convey upon our rational soul a new power: the power to create new human beings by our voluntary actions.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

It troubles me greatly when a Christian author writes a Christian article...without using any Scripture.

Furthermore, the author fails to include the (human) "spirit" in his argument.

Simply stated, the soul is the middle ground between the flesh and the spirit. Depending on which is stronger determines which has precedence in one's life. If the flesh is stronger, then one is considered to be "soulish". If the spirit is stronger, then one is considered to be "spiritual".

Male and female service in the church is not based on the quality of the soul. Serving in the church is based on authority.

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man...
