The Woman’s Role In The Bible
Part 9: Do Most Women Obey God?
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
My Beloved Sister in Christ Ingrid Greetings,
Beloved the wayward man-made Christians continue an assault on the true Gospel. Therefore there is much confusion concerning the role of women in the Church service. Meanwhile mis-informed Church goers make their own laws and defile the Bible. Paul as he writes to his favorite son Timothy notes instructions to the Church during worship service in 1 Timothy 2. Here we will find some prominent scripture that is often confused that has important implications for women in the Church.
1 Timothy 2: 9. “In like manner also the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;”
The confusion with much of the scripture that relates to women (and their rights etc.) in the Bible is often found in a mis-applied literal meaning. Also as Paul notes here there is a difference in women in the assembly and at home are in a social gathering. For example verse 8 notes that men are to pray, however it is not a stipulation that women are not allowed to pray. But this verse does note that women are not to pray in the assembly. Furthermore Paul is more interested in noting the kind of men that should pray than sex.
As we look a the second part of this verse we note that this section and all of the final verses 9-15 present the proper general demeanor of women as it relates to her relationship to man in all walks of life. Therefore this chapter is not a regulation of women’s duties and privileges in the Church.
For the record women are intended by God to be attractive to men see 1 Corinthians 11: 7-9. But God instructs the woman on what attire is suitable for her to wear in Church etc. For the record the disregard of this stipulation by God by many Preachers, Church leaders and women is a sad commentary. All of this casual attire (women and men) is ungodly to say the least. Women should wear modest dresses not pants and they should be forbidden to the death regarding the wearing of tight jeans and splits that come to their waist line. Also this applies to low cut dresses that expose a woman’s breast.
Women should never dress or wear clothes that will expose her body and are incite evil thoughts on that part of men or women. Meanwhile women should express self-control. They should dress and fix their hair in an immodest fashion. Thus hair do’s and jewelry are not to be worn by women to attract the opposite sex or those that have sexual identity problems.
In 1 Peter 3 we see some additional scripture that relates to our discussion. We advise the reader to study this entire Chapter. However we will note verse 3.
1 Peter 3: 3. “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing or gold, or of putting on of apparel:’
Brethren do most women dress in a modest fashion? Are there two extremes in the Church regarding women and a dress code? One extreme is noted in the women that dress in a casual wordily fashion in tight jeans, pants suits, short dresses and low-cut apparel that expose their upper bodies. There is also the other extreme that reveals women who think they are going to the Queen’s Ball when they go to Church.
Meanwhile the Preachers in their constant state of corruption and Devilish ways say nothing about proper attire for women are men. Can you be obedient to God and follow those that disobey God? What is the role of women in making some sense of the dress code ordained by God?
