21 Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
God clearly spells out for His people the qualifications for elected leaders. I really don't believe that God simply forgot to add women in this verse. If we don't look to His word to guide us in our paths, then we will look to our culture's or our own wisdom, of which there is none. It is not a matter of what we feel is good, but what we know God says IS good.
