Why Do Women Have To Obey?
Dear Brother Ron
If women are not inferior, why do we have shut up and obey? Many people
quote the scriptures to argue that women are inferior. The verses they quote
actually say that women must keep silent and obey. Why?
In the ancient Hebrew society, the man was the unquestioned head of the
family. His word was law. Women were considered little more than walking
incubators for the husband's children. Their opinions were neither respected
You will notice in the Old Testament and in the book of Matthew, the
lineages were given as men begetting men. Unless biology has changed a lot
since then, I strongly suspect there were some women involved in the
process. Their contribution was obviously not worth mentioning.
My wife and I have a completely different relationship. We are two different
people who join together to make something better than both of us. She is
strong where I am weak and vice versa. When we first got serious about each
other, I told her, "I don't want to walk on you and I'm not strong enough to
carry you but I would be proud to walk through life with you at my side."
It has worked for us for over twenty years.
