Wink 21st Century Plague: Domineering, Bossy Women

We see THEM in every commercial, sitcom, movie, book, magazine, board room, office, store and restaurant. THEY are active in every church, attempting - with much success- to control the choir, the music, the praise band, the Sunday School, the youth group, the finances, the pastor and the overall direction of the church.

Who are THEY?

They are domineering women. They are here, and in your face.

The twenty-first century woman is no longer satisfied with gender equality. No, the twenty-first century woman wants to exert her will through a variety of means which include - but is not limited to - manipulation, intimidation, threats and litigation. She wants to be in control. Above men.

This is a perversion of God's plan for humanity. Men and women are to roll through life on parallel tracks carefully constructed by God IN THE BEGINNING. Any deviation from these roles leads to familial and societal train wrecks.

Here is what the Bible has to say about domineering women.

"A woman must be a learner, listening quietly and with due submission. I do not permit a woman to be a teacher, nor must woman domineer over man; she should be quiet". (1 Timothy 2:11,12 New English Bible).

Woman in quietness let her be learning in all subjection; to be teaching but to woman not I am permitting, nor to be playing master of male person, but to be in quietness." (1 Timothy 2:11,12. Greek text translated by Westcott and Hort).

It is clear that God does not approve of domieering women. It is also clear that God expects women to be complements to men, in spite of perceived masculine weaknesses.

When wives fulfil their God-given allotted place they are happy, and have an enjoyable, interesting, and peaceful relationship with God and their husbands.

EA.......

You like to live dangerously, eh? Haha!

Nobody likes loud, domineering, bossy women except maybe some perhaps who like the drama that accompanies that kind of woman.

Have you ever met this woman?

You know, the one who constantly humiliates her kind, good-natured husband in public settings? She belittles him for his work, his family, their home, his intellect and .....

Re: 21st Century Plague: Domineering, Bossy Women

You're inviting a backlash of 1/2 of the body of Christ against the male Christian who treats his wife like chattle.

Do you think the verse from 1Tim applies to women in the church apart from the marriage partnership?

Re: 21st Century Plague: Domineering, Bossy Women

There's a lot of women who quietly control their husbands.
they come across sweet and kind but you can tell who wears the pants.
I see it a lot in ministry too. I don't think these women are happy deep inside

I'm not inviting anything. I'm not adding any disclaimers.

It is what it is and says what it says.

Do you disagree with Paul?
