I am hard pressed to find women as the leaders in the bible. It is is downright impossible to find female versions of Moses, Jesus, Paul, Daniel, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendago.. What is going on? Why has God not put women in the Leadership role within the bible? Don't mothers know best? Any and all feedback is welcome. Try to keep it friendly. Also to point out nowhere does it say the women were bad. Paul may have said for thewomen not to have authority over man bbecause the men were the ones who were studying. That's a possibility. Paul may have simply been saying let those who are studying his word be those in authority. I know from my own experiences in life the men have been those who gibe the bible greater authority. Paul said the women ought not to talk but be silent in service lest they pervert the word of God. Maybe the women were speaking against Gods word and it was starting quarrels. Maybe that's all it was. Paul says men lay down or life for or wife just as Christ did. That is an amazing thing. Meaning you man have to life your life in a way that will lead her into all truth. You have to pick the will of God for her sake. It is quite clear. Maybe Paul was saying it because the men were not loving their women.
