Two Biblical Reasons Why Women Were Not Permitted Authority Over a Man, But to be in Silence

There is nothing new under the sun. Women in Paul’s day were concerned about their appearance just as some women in our day are. 

According to the book of 1 Peter. 3:3–4, there is sufficient evidence women of those days were so much concerned about their external beauty while some had I'll motives.

From the above verse, women needed to be warned that their interest in beauty and adornment should not produce immodesty and indiscretion. This could be one of the main reasons why they were asked to remain silent but according to the book of 1 Timothy 2:12-14 following are the main reasons why they were asked to do so.

1) Man was made before woman. This means that the first reason for the prohibition of found in the order of creation.

Verse 13 "For Adam was formed first, then Eve."

2) Man was not the one deceived by Satan but woman was. This implies that sin came into the world when the Serpent strove to assault God’s order of creation.

Verse 14: "And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner."

Ladies and gentlemen please don't get me wrong. "Silence” does not mean that women are never to utter a word when the church gathers for worship. The term only requires women to have a quiet demeanor and spirit that is peaceable instead of argumentative.
