Male and Female in the Worshiping Church (Part 2)
8 Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.
9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, 10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. 11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. 14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.
It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do.
God created men and women equal with complementary roles. When the church family gathers for worship, men and women are to glorify God and build up each other. 1 Corinthians 11 and 1 Timothy 2 are key passages with exhortations based on creation—not culture.
