Greetings fellow Worthy-men.
This topic is here to discuss Biblical views on gender roles both inside and outside the church.
1 Corinthians 14:34
Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says.
1 Corinthians 11:2-6
I am so glad that you always keep me in your thoughts, and that you are following the teachings I passed on to you. 3 But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.[a] 4 A man dishonors his head[b] if he covers his head while praying or prophesying. 5 But a woman dishonors her head[c] if she prays or prophesies without a covering on her head, for this is the same as shaving her head. 6 Yes, if she refuses to wear a head covering, she should cut off all her hair! But since it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut or her head shaved, she should wear a covering.[d]
Then he said to the woman,
“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
but he will rule over you.[a]”
In America, it seems like women are constantly trying to gain more and more power. I've heard about families that were torn apart by women who felt that it was their duty to control their husbands and become the leaders of their families.
Women also talk inside of many (if not all churches) freely. In my church, there is even a woman's ministry. Just today, I had a woman go up in-front of my bible study group and talk about vulnerability.
So my question to the Worthy community is this, what role should each man and each woman of Christ play, both inside and outside the church?
