Oh boy! Paul always seems to stir the pot when it comes to women. What he says about how a woman should behave tends to touch a nerve in many of us. However, I can understand why he had to put it into words, and if it's included in the Bible, you best believe it came from God! You either believe all or none of it is to be believed. As women, we know how to maneuver to get what we want from a man; it's not that hard; look at how gullible Adam was when Eve gave him fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. She used her persuasiveness to convince him it was safe to eat, and it opened up a whole can of worms that we are all paying the price for today. A man of God will learn to resist a woman's ploy. As a woman of God, we are to adorn ourselves with the character of Jesus and let that tell the story about who we are, not our clothing or lack thereof. God has given us the tremendous responsibility of teaching our children to respect his word, show them who he is, and obey his commands. We are to train them to become good citizens so that they remember their training as adults. Our job is paramount for the future of society. If we are successful, our children will love and respect God and love others. Remember, I'm just the messenger.
likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 1 Timothy 2:9-10
