I think it was female deacons in the church which sent me off the do-as-I-say paved road to heaven. From my conservative christian church vision of how it should be, I tumbled and stumbled but it was the more mildly liberal church with their females taking up the “collection” and serving the communion which I mentally struggled with. What happened to women taking the submissive role in the church.
The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
….and this was in the new testament. So…do we obey the bible or do we pick and choose what we obey in the bible.
Yup…this was the beginning!
Until next time….
