Can never be God's prophet? I'm writing a story for my videogame and need to know this particular detail first.

Not sure if Ruth and Esther would be called prophets.

And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. (KJV)

Will we be able to get copies of this video game? I think it's pretty interesting that you're making one, and I think it would be cool to play it.

Yes, provided I get it done. I'm absolutely positive that any Christian will find it quite interesting, as it has an alternate version of history(including the way God's plan works out). I don't want to say any more.

That sounds awesome! I'd love to get a copy if everything works out.

Adding a new twist.
Would having a prophetress be enough to justify allowing woman Pastors?
Pls stick to this technicality alone.

I like to think of it from this angle. Can God use anyone to fulfill His purpose? If He made a donkey talk, then I don't see why a woman would not be able to speak. If a woman meets the same standard as a man in obtainable pastorial qualities, then I believe that woman should be allowed to be a pastor if she desires.

In contrast, I remember Jesus or Paul saying something about the church leaders being "Husbands of one wife". I think that implies men only...

It shouldn't be overlooked that Paul was also speaking within the culture of his time. I just don't see any reason today why women shouldn't be allowed not to speak. Perhaps in Middle Eastern countries, and other places where men are more respected than women (as like in Paul's time men would be listened to more, and therefore have greater impact). But in Western societies the barriers between men and women have generally been knocked down.
