Bible Mysteries: Women in Church

“34 the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. 35 If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.”

That’s 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35. I don’t really know what to make of it. Why can’t women speak in church? Does it still apply today? Hmmm. Then peep this next one.

“9 likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.”

That’s 1 Timothy 2: 9-14. Verse 14 just blows my mind! Basically women need to shut up cause we are the ones who let ourselves be deceived and become trangressors??? Damn that’s cold 😦

Would be nice to know what someone else interprets by these passages. Xxx
