Perhaps you are in favour of feminism. You can fight for women emancipation and the promotion of their rights. All this is very well! But the Sons and the Daughters of God strictly believe what the Bible declares. When God speaks, creation should make silence! Thus, let us stop philosophizing, reasoning and speculating about the position of the women in the Assemblies! Let us stop Debates because the Bible is very clear on this subject:
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.
Did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached? If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spiritually gifted, let him acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord's command.”
1 Corinthians 14: 33-37
“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing-if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
1 Timothy 2:11-15
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
“He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”
