More on the roles of women can be found in the article: (see also ).

This month also marked the fourth anniversary of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.
In this article, we're going to look at what the Bible says about the role of women in a formal church service. The following information is not MY opinion; it's what the Bible teaches.

The Role of Women in the Church: The Pauline Perspective

Is the tide changing, you think? Are we finally recognizing women’s role in history?
B. Like everyone else, women have to live morally, grow in the grace andknowledge of God, and remain faithful to the Lord (there is no justification for limitingcommands such as the following to males only: 2 Corinthians 7: 1; Colossians 1: 10, 2Peter 1: 5-11; Jude 21).

Women played many unique and critical roles in the New Testament church.
God is infallible, men are not. Someone can still believe in the church and have hopes for its improvement. And while we disagree, I respect your right to believe in the church as you do.

Gnostics were opposed to childbearing—not every Gnostic, but many Gnostics were opposed to childbearing. Why? Because when you became pregnant, then what happened is that you created another body. But where did the soul come from? Where did that life spark come from? Well, that life spark had to come from the true God—way up there at the top, so that what happens is that you, through your ignorance in childbearing, have caused a piece to break off the true God, if you will, so many of the Gnostics believe that women could not ascend back to the true God until they gathered up all the sparks, if you will, or pieces that they were responsible for breaking off the real God.
