I’m in a section of scripture that women everywhere get miffed over, but we shouldn’t; God is not trying to hurt our feelings. It’s not particularly this one verse but the whole section. Here’s my example:
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3
God created a specific order, and the reason we must abide by it is seen in the headlines of the day here in the United States, just as it happened in Corinth back in biblical days. Women and men have forgotten God's order. If God is the head of Christ and Christ the head of man and man the head of women, everything works out to God's glory. Women don't like knowing that God considers a man head of women, so some try to reverse that order by cutting their hair, dressing, and acting like a man, hoping they would become superior to a man. In many cases, the reverse is also true of men playing a submissive role and allowing a woman or another man to dominate them. All the women's movements of the past have contributed to the decline in our country and have spread throughout the world. If only women had abided by God's word and not ventured into men's territory, and men started acting like men, our country might not be in decline. God created us to be who we are; nothing we do will change it.
Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God. 1 Corinthians 11:11-12
