What do we do with these injunctions by the Apostles, roughly quoted here -
 
"but I do not allow a woman to teach or have authority over a man  because Eve sinned first"

"let the women keep silent in church"

"if she has a question, let her ask her husband at home"

Are women really supposed to say nothing in church when men are allowed, to rely mainly on their husbands for religious instruction and to not instruct men in the faith - how do we deal with this issue

What do you do if you're male and not a priest? Let someone else worry about it.





Oh, mustn't forget: . . . petunias . . .

Well, St. Paul was not aware of the wise saying "keep 'em barefoot and pregnant"

See the follwing thread:

St. Paul was also unaware of the current fashion.

The first condition of salvation is to keep the norm of the true faith and in no way to deviate from the established doctrine of the Fathers.

How about the gospel reading at the wedding service?  I always wonder when my wife will learn how important it is to listen to me   Grin
