I know it says in the Bible that a woman should be silent in church, etc. Like such:
from Timothy I
2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
I don't know what to do or say.
I feel uncomfortable doing schoolwork now.
i think i should just go upstairs, say my prayers, and go to bed....
I really don't know.
Part of me is like,"GO WOMAN! WE RULE!!!!!" And i think of Eowyn in ROTK (the movie) slaying the Witch-King. But maybe, it wasn't her. It was Merry? After all, he's not a man either, he's a HOBBIT.
(Am i going overboard?)(I hope not.)
i feel sad. But not too sad. Maybe it's supposed to be. When i first read that passage months ago, I cried my eyes out, but you know something?
It was a GOOD kind of crying.
It felt so good to know I was ok and i was not that bad, but that somebody could take care of me, and that i could depend on a man instead of having to work-work-work all the time outside of the house for a living. Not to say that i would not ever work. I'd have to do housework, you know--but, that's another thing althogether!!!!!!!!!
And that's cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please pray for me. I hope i am loved. I feel so doggone torn.
I still have such a long way to go...
God bless you and please pray for me.
