Do You Feel That Women are Equal with Men?
Why do I so often sense that some men, too many men, most men feel that God purposely created women to be inferior to men? How can any Christian, true-Christian, born-again-Christian ever entertain such a false thought? I hear comments such as: God created women only to serve their husband; women should not work outside the church; women need to have children to be fulfilled; women are more easily lead astray, mislead, outwitted, and deceived…than men; women should always view their husbands as the boss of the home; women leaders in a church are a problem; women must be obedient to their husbands; women can not handle church leadership, and on and on.
To the contrary; women are equal in every area that any one can examine. Women excell in law, medicine, teaching, engineering, research, sports, the military...and every other area that men exist in.
It appears that there are only two verses in the Bible that hint that women are to be silent in churches. That is 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35.
In the next book Galatians 3: 27-28-29 it seems very strict to the opposite, (Spiritual significance of baptism) 27 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.” 28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ.” 29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Of course women are equal with men.
