Wow! I can’t believe how often women talk about *needing* a voice. God doesn’t seem to think women need a voice.
He warns men about quarreling and contentious women.
He commands women to be silent in the churches.
He commands young women to marry, bear children, and guide the home so they don’t become tattlers and busybodies.
He commands women to have meek and quiet spirits.
He commands wives to win their disobedient husbands “without a word” by their godly behavior.
He knows women’s tendency to think they *need* a voice. He didn’t put them in authority in the homes, churches, or nations for many good reasons.
Women’s voices have caused far more destruction than anything good. Check out the Women’s Marches and women in politics.
God commands our obedience. He doesn’t want women having a voice to demand their rights and air out their grievances for others to hear.
